Well, what exactly is being added to the game by purchasable cannon fodder?
It might be rare and localized, but the argument for it seems to be almost non existent.
You are able to run an animal trainer that is not a Druid at low level.
You may run a ranger with a trained animal ... friend... that is not an AC, and can do it from first level.
And why do you assume that they are "Cannon Fodder"?
I can see running a Sholanti Barbarian with a Totam animal (that just happens to be a purchassed animal) - and having him tell the Cleric in the group.
"This my wand of curing. Use it on Tiger before me... it not got a lot of healing in it, and more important to keep my friend up."
OR (Sarcasm alert - skip the next line to avoid it!)
I guess we can ban it. It's just some silly PC concepts - and heck, those people wanting this option are clearly playing the game wrong.
