Each time that you return to your camp, you meet all of the companions there. You can always come by and talk to them. Throughout conversations, you learn more about the characters and about their views on the current events. Also, you can hear their life stories stories and learn more about the game world. Occasionally, you can also receive minor quests or actions to perform on the tactical map. Once you learn something, it is automatically included in your Codex - which will be brought to your attention. This is why it is advisable that you talk to each of the companions, preferably after each main quest. Once you get to know the characters well, some of them may task you with additional quests and unlock actions in the tactical view, which is why you should talk to them often and be inquisitive about the matters that have been brought up. During the conversations, you can pick those of the dialogue options that affect the relations between your character and your companion. These relations can contribute to the development of romance, which has been presented on the next page.
