Living off the grid on Key Point in Sulani.
So tonight was the first time I actually tried out the "skeletal assistant", and I could not get it to work. I had Olive Specter summon her assistant several times (both with the wooden and gold version of the relic) and no assistant would appear. I did, however, get the appropriate notification that she received the blessing.
I happened to stumble across your post, and noticed I had set her lot to "Off The Grid". Getting rid of the lot trait allowed the skeleton to appear.
Personally, I think it has something to do with the skeletons' need to cook meals that cannot be made off the grid. I do hope that Bonehilda won't be treated the same!
