In my latest game, I recently got my first NPC companion, and have been having him read skill books while I do things around the base. However whenever he finishes reading he comes over to my workspace. I could have him stay in place by telling him to guard, but that prevents me from setting his activity. So is there a way for me to get him to read books, while still staying in an arbitrary square?
I vaguely recall I could do something like this with a faction camp, but I don’t have one set up, so that’s out for a while yet. Any way to do it in an arbitrary location?
