When you rest at an inn or bench to update, you do have to have your pawn be alive (that is why I recommend updating on the beginning area of bbi), when you rest, that will actually do an update and you will receive any rents you’ve received. Just in case you were just sleeping without reviving your pawn.
Your Pawn is uploaded to the Rift whenever you rest at an Inn or a Resting Bench in BBI while in Online Mode if it is currently with the party. If you want to preserve your Pawns' level, just switch to Offline Mode before resting, throw them off of a cliff/ into the Brine (if you are in Online Mode) again before resting, or just do a manual save instead.
If you have rental Pawns with you, keep in mind that you have to be in Online Mode when you release them, then rest at an Inn or Resting Bench for their creators to receive any RC and/ or gifts. You'll have to get rid of your Pawn before you rest because as soon as you touch a Rift Stone it will return.
Why do women use makeup and perfume? Because they're ugly and they stink ;)
