Subscribe to download: 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.

when i would talk to saad he wouldnt say anything. So i cant hire merc. Is there a troubleshooter?

i think ppl having mod not working is due to mod conflict with something else. Never had issues. With last update author did before bailing, seemed to result in the glitch where saad and kenturo are unresponsive sometimes. I think that's a script issue and just have to wait. I know another using this mod and they encountered that but after a moment can talk to them and recruit zillions of followers.

i noticed sometimes saad and kenturo would not talk to me, have to try a few times. usually if I try to talk to them right away when entering Whiterun or exiting/entering building. i think it has something to do if you have other mods trying to run scripts and just need to wait a moment. I never mess with the group commands in the Power menu, seems to mess things up. Aside from that, and a glitch where you speak to one hired Merc and give him stuff, but goes to another Merc, names not working right (I don't care what their names are LOL), and that Mercs mostly have grey-skin, this mod is still the best follower mod out there. You can recruit unlimited followers. No special extra stuff needed. Works just fine after all these years. I read some had savegame issues. I never had. I think maybe that is due to a mod conflict, I never had that issue.

[FOR] Skyp Mar 3 @ 3:57pm 
i would talk to either kenturo or saad and they would just talk like any other non interactable npc so no menu would pop up.

This mod is awesome. I was wondering if you could make a male only version, or
give a brief description on how to delete mercenaries after they are spawned.
Thanks in advance
