But still, you are reducing the point cost of the "ally" because the "ally" is just a sword. Now, I guess this isn't an issue if I define the Ally how I want, but still, the point cost could be very low.

So let's say I wanted to do this, how would you build a trait that makes the "ally" into a sword that does sw+3 damage when wielded by another PC? ST-based innate attack, right?

I think this could work, but I'll need to look at Thaumatology, of course.

sw+3 would just be a feature of being a sword. Now, if you wanted to do sw+1d, you'd buy Cutting Attack 1 with ST-Based. Remember, an ally SHOULD have some disadvantages in their build.

Now, if you want to up the value of the sword, give it Imbue 3 and raise a few of the skills to meaningful levels. Now you have a really awesome sword worth charging points for.

That is indeed what I was talking about, yes.
