The gameplay

Adventure mode

By default this mod is played in adventure mode. This mode adds quests and events for recruited followers. In order to recruit followers, you must receive the letter from Marlon with an invitation to meet which will trigger the Introduction Event.

For Marlon's invitation you must meet these conditions:

  1. At first reach the 20th level of the mines in mountains
  2. Be granted access to the Adventurer's guild
  3. Then you will receive letter from Marlon with invitation
  4. After you receive Marlon's letter, you must meet him in the Adventurer's guild

If you meet all of these conditions above, you are eligible to recruit a companion!

Classic mode

If you don’t want to use Adventure mode, and only want villagers to follow you, just disable ‘Adventure mode’ in configuration . By disabling Adventure mode you enable Classic mode, which removes ALL extra quests and events! You can recruit a companion instantly (if you have 5 hearts or more with the NPC you want recruit).

How to play

Ask an NPC to follow you by right clicking when no dialogues are queued. Trigger NPC actions (use their backpack, dismiss them) by right clicking when NPC is recruited and no dialogues are queued.
