Description
Adds a Dwarven Spider to Whiterun that will follow you and help fight. He cannot be killed and his name is Skittles.
First mod, so pretty rough around the edges.
I just wanted to have a Dwarven Spider follow me and fight, and maybe you do too.

Tutorial video that taught me this mod:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgSmKCoyAlU
I know it is for Fallout New Vegas, but all the principles are the same.

Update:Looks like I'm part of an article on PC Gamer about the best Steam workshop Skyrim mods. Did not see that coming. http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/02/08/the-best-steam-workshop-skyrim-mods/?ns_campaign=article-feed&ns_mchannel=ref&ns_source=steam&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0

FAQ:
Where is he?
Placed him outside Breezehome in Whiterun. If he isn't there, then wait anywhere in Whiterun and he will find you.

Why isn't he in Markarth?
Convenience. Most people travel through Whiterun often so he is easy to pick up. It isn't authentic, but I just wanted to get him as quickly as possible and continue my journey. No plans for a questline in Markarth.

He's attacking me, what do I do?
I honestly don't know how you started a fight with him. Try not to attack him in the future.

Why don't you add ____ to this?
I am really the most basic of modders. I learned how to make this mod from a 10 minute tutorial video. It is doubtful I will work much more on it other than maybe figuring out how to dismiss him. I made this mod for myself for the most part to replace Barbas, and it serves every function I need it to in the current state.

Why is he named Skittles?
Cause he is, and you can either accept him as he is or make a new mod.

Edit: Just to clear up any confusion, 4 years later I have no plans to update this mod. If you want a more finely crafted follower mod, there are plenty of alternatives on the workshop. He's just as broken as the day I made him and he's going to stay that way. I honestly just find him kinda cute in the ways he's broken and wouldn't have it any other way.

I highly recommend trying to make one yourself. The tools are much simpler than expected and it is very rewarding to see something in-game you worked on yourself.

You do know you can get a dwarven spider follower and dwarven sphere follower in the dragonborn DLC? But i guess this is a good mod if you don't have that, or if you want it to be named Skittles c:
