I like these 101 reason threads, so I did a brisk search on a subject that can be sometimes a difficult question to answer. I didn't see anything with the quick once over, so here it is.

The question is, "Why is my character adventuring with these strangers?"

I'll start.

1. The party consists of your brother and sisters.

2. Each other party member holds a piece of a shattered legendary item that could be mended.

3. The king commands it.

4. You don't want to go it alone.

5. These people look like they'd make for an exciting time.

6. You have a death wish.

What others can you think up?

7. If I try to have my own adventure completely away from the party I'd be "that guy."

8. Bragging rights for using this all Paladin party as sacrifices to achieve my lichdom.

9. I lent that mofo 3k for some stupid belt and I'll be damned before he isn't forced to pay what he owes.

10. They are a means to an end.

11. I've known him since 6th grade

The adventure is over if we don't adventure together. That or I'm an a&$$$&%.

26. Nothing says success like first-hand witnesses to yours.

27. This bunch of loser dwarves are heading to a great wyrm's lair? Sure, you'll "burgle" something alright.

28. You and your dwarf 'cousins' sure shnookered that stupid hobbit. "Burglar" my rear, he's there to be appetizing to the dragon while you and your 'cousins' charge the beast en masse with your mighty dwarven arsenal.

29. Dwarves ... hobbits ... they're all a sideshow entertainment while you filch that last dragon scale necessary to complete your phylactery that you're calling 'the Flame of Uldun'. There should be hundreds of suitable scales laying around that big treasure horde.

30. Nothing ensures loyalty like interwoven geases.

31. You all lost the same bet.

32. You all want different pieces of Tar-Baphon/Vectra/Venca. Go Team Appendage!!

36. They say to keep your friends close. This party is composed of people I like to keep closer.

37. They are bunch of alcoholic buffoons, but they sure can find the loot.

38. If I'm part of the party I always know where the barbarian is, so I can stay upwind.

39. I doubt I could find any more guilable suckers erg companions no matter how hard I searched.

40. I assure you that's just a coincidence that you all would make excellent organ doners.

While that other summoner is off with his stupid little "electric mouse" eidolon, trying to figure out ways to summon new monsters, you've already got a group of female cohorts and this sweet red wagon, in addition to a better eidolon and some sweet custom summons of your own. Now you're mostly in it just to rub it in his face.

64. I need traveling companions to keep me company and help me protect my Eidolon from those weird summoners who are always trying to steal it, unless my damned rival who's always one step ahead of me driving around in a red horseless chariot with plenty of b*****s to cheer him on.
