I've got a player who really wants to play one of those feats I've dreaded as a DM- Leadership. He wants a cohort, he's sixth level. Making up his 4th level cohort was no problem, but I'm curious how everyone's (anyone's) played this before. Does the DM normally run the character? The player? The player, but with DM veto?
Any advice, stories, hints, or comments would be greatly appreciated, as it's one of those things I'm not really comfortable with yet. Let me know just how bad my PC's can get with this.... and if there's anything else I need to be thinking about.
