    Hi, all. So, I'm not sure what occurred. All of a sudden Jormund had 0 reaction to me (w/smoking jacket, which when I take off is -20). I was, I believe, under the first Panarii temple. He had a tesla rod equipped (I notice they veer off and hit allies occasionally). There was no indicator that he'd turned hostile, as he's still in my party & (unless I ask him to wait) seems happy to STAY in my party. SO, I accidentally saved over it... This had happened once before and I caught it, but alas. Second of all, he appears to have gone up to 4 (or -16) dislike (somehow), but every time I critically fail he hates me again (wtf?). So here are my questions: #1. Is there a reason for this bug? #2. How do I manually fix this (in-game or w/hax, it don't matter)? #3. How do I avoid it in the future. Thankx.

    So, I just used a fate point to improve his reaction to me (which skyrocketed to like 120 or something). But I'm still curious what set this off, if anyone knows?

    Maybe because you gave him tech equipment despite his magical aptitude? Just doing random guessings....

    Good companions will think less of you when attacking a good target. Occasionally, this can stack - especially if you assault someone without them striking back, e.g. multiple hits in the first turn or when they're in flight. With unvoiced characters this can be easily missed, unlike annoying voiced characters like Magnus.

    "I can't BELIEEEVE you'd attack such a DEEECEEENT...."

    I know all about the NORMAL ways negative reactions can stack and as a matter of fact I have Magnus in my party (who helps enormously calling these things out, like with the demon L'anamelach). However, neither Magnus, Thorvald or Dog are getting hit with these negative reactions. Just Jormund. I really think it's a bug of some kind. A few questions: #1. Do certain characters have UNIQUE reaction triggers maybe? Is that a thing? #2. Maybe I shot him? Then why no one else? With three points in Firearms and Expert status I'm still (literally...) blowing my own head off. #3. Can giving tech equipment to a magickally adept character lower there reaction to you? Is this confirmed?
