So I'm playing World Builder and tamed a beast companion and it occurs to me, should I be sharing rations day by day to keep my companion alive, just like with mounts?
If I give it one ration per day (that is, per AP) I will obviously burn through my rations in half the time.
Or do we presume the beast companion will fend for itself somehow?
I did review the references to dealing with beasts on page 13, allowing them to use their abilities their level times per hex, and also page 64, the event of running into an animal trainer to acquire beasts. But no mention of feeding them.
PS I don't imagine I can add saddlebags to my beast to carry extra rations either.
PPS fully aware of the difference between rations and food, I had not worried about feeding my beast companions during quests before, that is "when the clock strikes 12" (so to speak), I only spent one food on my PC. So during quests, whether playing WB or not, should we be giving food to our beast companion?
