Everyone knows that since you brought your cohorts along, without you, the puzzle never would have been solved, ergo any credit, loot, or exp is yours and yours alone.

I actually have come to value players who know how to build a good PC that comes with useful NPC's. I mean, the GM usually adds some anyway, but when the system has things like "Allies" a player can farm out some of his or her PC's proficiency elsewhere, somehow improving both roleplaying and gaming opportunities.

Plus, when it half works, you can have fun buddying up to that NPC while ignoring the PC itself. XD

I like the idea of playing two characters. One is a noble knight(a bard) who has ungodly high charisma, and hypes his skills, works the crowd, and plays spin doctor like the professional that he is.

The other is his "squire", a badass paladin who does all the real fighting.

"Bah, if you can't defeat my squire, you could never hope to face me in honest combat!"

Yeah, running multiple characters - assuming you're not in a setting where the GM just has you run your own NPC allies - allows for some fun ideas. I had some success in a no magic/low-psi fantasy/medieval game running an archer with solid wilderness survival skills alongside a hatchet using fighter with solid urban survival skills.

I also had fun-but weird approach to it your "noble knight" reminded me of just now; a supervillain who pretended to be a weak superhero because his main ability was creating up to four duplicates of himself. Instead of highlighting that, the real him pretended to be a civilian while two dupes would dress out as a criminal duo and the other two as a heroic duo. Relevance? The latter two went out as a knight and his squire, the knight "magically" summoning his squire (Duplication power)

Multiple characters would let me play out scenes likethis.
