SpellForce 2 - Faith in Destiny

Faith in Destiny - Free Mode
I'm playing the Free Mode in Faith in Destiny and can only recruit 3 other companions. Everytime i go back to the main town, 2 more campanions have '?" above their heads, i can talk to them, but no matter what i do, i can't get them to join my group. Anyone else have this problem ? I'm lv 14 at the moment too !
