My followers seem to suffer random injuries without a reason
Recently i started noticing that my followers somehow get "battle" injuries despite not actually sustaining any in battles that they have participated in. The first time this happened was when i approached the abandoned mine to confront Esteban and forgot to save so i quit the game since somehow i did not expect running from there not to be an option, yet now this happened again after a battle with slaves where only one of my followers get knocked down. What is going on there? Am i missing some other opportunities where my followers could get severe lacerations without it producing a popup?

If there is a random event that injure your follower, a popup should appear. I never encounter such problem before so I can't say anything much.

I didn't choose to use slaves but I hypothesize that the event always injure your follower (This mean that when the slaves rebel against you, one of your follower will be injured)

I hope that my reply will attract the dev's attention to this thread.

I always make my main character a doctor since he's the only character in the party that doesn't do basic chores or fight. That means whenever somebody is injured, he can help heal them up while everybody else hunts, guards, scouts or um... herbalizes.

Nw there are a lot of random events where your hunters get bitten by boars and your guards get shanked by natives and such. Always take at least one healer and pay attention when you camp to those pop-up events. Otherwise your people will get injured out of battle and die round by round.

This has just happened to me again after another slave uprising, nobody in my party got knocked down in battle yet two people, even those who did not participate in battle, got hurt. I guess i just need to know if that is supposed to happen, as i don't recall there any mention of anyone except me getting hurt in the flavour text.

My guess is that they were hurt by the event. You might find text in the popup prior to the battle which tell you that your followers got injured by the slaves. They didn't get hurt by the battle but by the slave BEFORE the battle.

I'm not sure about this. Please tell me that I am wrong if the event happen again next time and you found that this is irrelevant.

Sorry that I can't help much. As I said before, I hired servants instead of slaves so I don't know what happen when slaves rebel against players.

The developer appears to have skipped this thread even though they responded to one about patch issue, which is kinda sad, as i really want to know if that is intentional and can't decide whether i should continue this game or start anew with paid servants since if it is intentional, multiple slave uprisings (unless one of the options to deal with them permanently cancels them) really hurt in the long run, and i can't check that on my own because they are random.
I hope someone else can answer this question as all my search attempts on this matter have proved fruitless.

I would suggest you restart new game (in case you haven't progress too far). I heard (and from my experience) that hiring servant is better. You pay once and that's it.

And yes, it is kinda sad that they ignore this thread (but I think they are busy with updating).

I don't think i was very far, as i was only returning from the false location of the second group of rebels after having encountered Esteban for first time. Perhaps i could have made it with my 10000 valuables, but having the slaves continually revolt every now and then (possibly because i did not choose to slaughter all of them rather than just those who revolted) and making me lose medicine at the expense of only one of my followers gaining morale is pretty annoying.

But it might actually be good for proud,aggressive followers? Also, you gain exp for every battle you win (but I believe it is not worth it)

You might try to kill 'em all but I'm not sure how will it impact on your party. I guess you might be slowed down?

Anyway, don't judge the game by all of these. It's a good game for me and I hope you will find the same.

The options that i chose in that event were only good for Isabela, who had reduced morale due to me having a party of aggressive followers that i tried to appease. For my first playthrough i had tried to do only what would i do myself in that situation, considering the year and the party as well. Even though these options did not lower anyone's morale, i don't think having 2 characters at the same time receive injuries no matter what i do is a fair trade.

I do like this game, and already have started a new playthrough where i'm using paid help. I'm still not sure i know what i'm doing though.

little late but
i can confirm that it s a bug, or at least i think it is

iron man mode, flawless victory, 5 wounded??
doesn t happen often but i noticed this sort of stuff twice

i never had this problem last year when playing, but apparently they updated the game alot since then

my bet would be they sort of screwed up a line somewhere and have no real idea how to fix it
oh well, it s annoying but not game breaking(yet? i play with fatal injuries, wonder if it s possible to have a instadead with this bug, i think i had one, but since it was total chaos in my team could have been my bad by lack of treatment)
