Mercenaries (Unlimited Followers)

(FIXED !!!) Hire as many Mercenaries and Mercenary archers you can afford. They act like followers, guard trade, individual or group commands!

Talk to "Saad" near the Guard Shack in Whiterun (south entrance). He will contract mercenaries to you. These Mercs will follow you to the depths of hell and back (so long as you continue to pay them). He is in the Bannered Mare at night.

Talk to "Kenturo" in the Bannered Mare to hire Mages

Upon your first contract, you will be given a "Power" that acts like a quick-menu for group commands. Or if you prefer, you can give them individual commands.

Dismiss them when you want to go solo, then just select follow from the troop menu and they will find you wherever you are.

BATTLE-VISION: This does nothing except highlight your troops on the battlefield. I used it during development to observe AI changes, and behavior. I left it because I thought players may enjoy having it at first, for the same reason. I prefer to play with it off... but sometimes it's handy.

They turn blue when activated. Red is added when they enter combat, making them a more violet color.

Actually fixed the random face/gender options. No longer keep getting the same guy. Different looking Mercs, and different genders as well.


1. New Class : Destruction Mage
2. Added Females
3. Compatibility Issues (open cities)
4. Hiring and Cost Adjustments
Player Matched Mercs
Hire multiple Mercs at once
5. User Modifiable Globals (see forum)
7. Names for your Mercs
8. Trade System
9. Troop Formations
10. More Random Faces
11. Lightfoot Perk

and all the folks in this forum:

Before posting here, please try the following:

Make a clean save (by unsubscribing, load your game, save the game again without mercs, and then resubsscribe.

Save games with old versions of Merc scripts can cause problems with the new features. This is a Bethesda bug that sometimes leaves leftover data, even in your "clean" saves from mods that are completely uninstalled.

Works great on truly clean saves or new characters.

If a clean save doesn't work for you, then you may need to wait until your next character roll to use the upgraded features. Or, you can get the older version on nexus if you would like to keep using mercs on your current save game.

Whenever I go to speak to Saad, it doesnt engage dialogue, just the basics like "Need something?"

I have it in my files.. but no one shows up anywhere. so... i cant buy mercs.. great idea though. wish I could have tried it.. pouts.

I love having many followers. however they always get in the way. or run off and fight when the red dot shows up. I then lose them or they die and I had no idea. usually with all my things on them.. this is more amazing. Id love fo them to follow in formation.. and i noticed when the dragonborn was running even though a dragon was near.. they all stayed running with him instead of getting ready for a fight. I loved that... because sometimes I just dont have time for a dragon or to turn around and save my follower's butt. thanks for this. Im going to try this out.
