Leadership- when, where, and how?
It's not a new idea that the Leadership feat in D&D 3.5 can be....a bit wonky.
The general complaints are about the cohort being imbalanced compared to the party, and depending on the choices available it varies from nigh-useless to outclassing certain party members.
The large horde of low-level followers tend to fill the same range of power, with the added problem that they are clunky and hard to deal with, since D&D's system was made to handle small groups, not battles set up Warhammer-style.
Determining your Leadership score can also be problematic depending on stacking stats, bonuses, and variable effects.
Here are some recent sentiments expressed about Leadership (taken mostly from the thread that inspired this one):
