Idea for Historians (npc log team mates)

Earth just posted something about being able to see death logs in the game.
I have also found a lot of old logs and am having to edit them to take out specials info.

Which reminded me of a thought I had before about being able to hire an npc Historian to journey with you.
The would log everything and you could get them to mail you the account.

Would be useful for logs certainly.
They could maybe also post content on the official web site in a player logs section.

Could tell them when to start and when to stop.
If you force them to leave the team would disappear.

Could make him unattackable?
Since what he sees someone else is seeing and could log anyway, ie not tactical advantage for an enemy to kill him off.

If they were all called Dukier it would be a nice tribute to the historian in the Steve Erikson Malazan books :D

Wouldn't that tax the server a bit too much? I mean, one thing is executing stuff from memory, but another is dumping everything into a file. Maybe for very special circumstances (like a battle in the Arena) but having it all times besides you... that is what your client is supposed to do! :D

Neat idea, though.
