Remember that the events are multi use and somewhat generic. You may notice that it say if you have . x, y or z. . in you party . . . This is so that if you encounter this event with your party and you have the appropriate party members then you get a bonus or penelty variation. If you don't then you just get the plain event.
e044 is really a non event without companions. I wonder if it should have been e043.
e046 is a non event if you haven't encountered the gate of darkness before and recognised it.
