for everyone who is having problems talking to herman here is how to fix,

delete the mod fully from skyrim
let the launcher load and recognize that the file has been deleted
close skyrim launcher, resub or download the mod agian
reload skyrim launcher and let it load all the mods
continue your saved file, it will say the save relies on objects that are no longer there but just ignore that and then go to herman and he should talk to you himself :)

ill play with herman looks like it will be fun with a new member on my team
KrazyHare Apr 20 @ 11:46am 
um, does he disrupt your sneaking? since he's a draugr, there're no animations

I started a new game, that didnt help. Placed a new herman with console, did not work

Need help. Herman will not talk to me. This is my first meeting with him, and if i interact with him, nothing happens

Realy liked what you did in this mod, sadly i encountered problems with Hermans pathfinding, first dungeon i entered with him he got stuck at nearly every corner, what a shame, otherwise he would have been the perfect companion for my nord Necromancer/Frostmage! ;-)

HELP... When i tell him to follow me he says "You already have a follower, you foolish mortal, fucking dumb shit" and i dont have a follower... Everytime i tell him to follow me he repeats that..
Jii'laaq Fireheart Jan 21 @ 2:08am 
Help please. Herman will not leave when I tell him to return to his crypt, and he will not stay when I tell him to wait.
SilverTheModka Jan 17 @ 6:09pm 
I was going to subscribe but then I saw you had to get him from bleak falls barrow which was a real deal-breaker for me, I'd move him to somewhere more... Convenient
Sandy Bush Try lard Dec 10, 2015 @ 11:20am 
Wish he had more dialogue as he repeats the same quotes constantly
A clever pet rock Dec 2, 2015 @ 11:55am 
can he wear otehr armors?
Teeheetummytums Nov 5, 2015 @ 7:41pm 
Jaerv(creator) I appreciate the detication to the voice acting, sounds great and integrates well into the game. Great mod!
Grunt Oct 20, 2015 @ 12:54pm 
If Your still supporting this mod (I love it by the way) could you look into an issue ive been having? Not sure if anyone else is having the problem but after getting him If I want him to leave he replies and says ok or whaterver but he continues to follow me and he wont wait anywhere unless I hold E to give commands but then he wont resume following me again.
Gentlefish Oct 7, 2015 @ 7:47pm 
Hey, you should mention that if he doesn't talk to you when you meet him (like in the cases of the previous two commenters) you can just make a new save and reload it to fix him.
Captain Bitchslap (NOR) Oct 5, 2015 @ 2:15pm 
i have the same problem. i get the ''summon herman'' spell, but i can't use it because the game says i have not met him yet
All IW dislikers, fuck you :) Aug 28, 2015 @ 1:17pm 
Also, he comes and doesn't talk only gives a spell which i cant use yet. Please help.
All IW dislikers, fuck you :) Aug 28, 2015 @ 12:53pm 
Where can i find him? I can't find him anywhere in Bleak Falls Barrow.
The Aviator Aug 8, 2015 @ 8:09pm 
I really have liked Inigo, but Herman is my favorite follower.
JosephHefner54321 Aug 4, 2015 @ 6:09pm 
can you make a 'Voice Acting' for him (standalone)
KrazyHare Aug 4, 2015 @ 12:17am 
Im hesitating between Inigo and herman, can somebody help?

Can you make a version where you can summon him without going into bleak falls barrow? My game crashes every time I enter the sanctum and I cant get him as a follower.
Plz?
☁TTT☁ QuakeOats Jun 2, 2015 @ 7:07pm 
I misread the name of this mod as: Herman the Maid. I really need to sleep one of these days.
PyroZane May 27, 2015 @ 3:09pm 
When i summon herman he just keeps running away from me is it because im too scary lol

Shark_Eating_a_Cheeseburger May 3, 2015 @ 12:46am 
i noticed this follower mod cant be used with the cute follower mod what a shame -__-
jiim0240 Apr 24, 2015 @ 7:27pm 
will you add a new version for the paid thing? PLEEEZE
Beardly Apr 22, 2015 @ 6:28pm 
I have a mod that allows me to have up to 7 or 8 followers, but for some reason, Herman won't follow me when I have my other companions with me.

I'm not mad. I'm just wondering if anything can be done about it. Thanks. :)
Jdogduck Apr 10, 2015 @ 5:23pm 
When i summon herman he just keeps on walking somewhere and I can't talk to him. Why? what can I do to fix this?
Murder Mar 1, 2015 @ 4:25am 
Amazing mod! Could you make more followers like this?
wendikyleen Feb 24, 2015 @ 3:23pm 
I love Herman, he's one of my favorite mod followers! I love the voice work and the dialogue is so funny! The only time I have ever gotten ticked off at him was when he knocked me off a cliff, because he stays up my butt when he's following. Thumbs up!
POUNDINATOR Feb 17, 2015 @ 11:35am 
He won't leave bleak falls barrow
palkinator89 Feb 13, 2015 @ 9:31am 
Had a bit of a bug. When I told Herman to wait, he did that just fine. But when i said lets go, he told me"okay" but then turned around and walked back to the campfire. Whenever i talk to him, he gives the "Follow me" and words of wisdom option. And even if he says he'll follow, he does not. I'm gonna uninstall and reinstall it, and that'll probably fix it. Just wanted to let you know? Maybe it can be fixed.
Dosudro Jan 18, 2015 @ 4:31pm 
So I had this giant, in-depth response to fix the Herman/AFT issue, sadly the character limit rendered it hopeless. Here's the short-short version!

1) Complete the Barrow and re-enter rather than going to Whiterun.
2) Save and exit while at the campfire at the entrance with Herman.
3) Un-subscribe and launch the loader to sync. Delete Herman and reload your game.
4) Ignore the missing data message. Save and exit as soon as load is complete.
5) Re-subscribe and allow the loader to sync. Make sure Herman is after AFT.
6) Go down the Barrow to find Herman. He may not work right at first.
7) Save and exit and reload. Herman "should" be fixed.

~~Dos

P.S.
After finding an issue with multiple followers not working with AFT, I found that I had to move AFT to the very last entry. Your milage may vary.

Really loving this mod, the random dialogue he makes in every scenario keeps him quite comical.

If I had to make a suggestion, it would be him having some dialogue (mostly related to combat) spoken in the dragon tongue. He's not immersion-breaking or anything, but seeing as he was supposedly alive during the time of the dragon cult's golden age, it would be appropriate for him to speak the dragon's language. Even recycling the lines used by the vanilla draugrs would be sufficient.
OCELOT Dec 3, 2014 @ 9:11am 
Had the no dialogue problem, I saved and reloaded and he immediately spoke to me. I only assume it must have something to do with trying to talk to him before he initiates his dialogue to you.
cyberdron88 Nov 30, 2014 @ 12:45pm 
im having a problem talking to herman it won`t let me talk to him
R G ADAMS Nov 24, 2014 @ 12:04pm 
having an issue with herman fighting in his "brute force" mode where hes wearing his helm. he wont fight anyone except when hes in his magic mode even when they are attacking him. Any help?
[SBRBF] Jaster Oct 28, 2014 @ 3:47am 
Ok for those having probs, you can get herman with AFT, heres what i used to do to get him + other followers.
When you 1st meet herman and he asks if you want to have him follow you or not choose the NO option, afterwerds, back a bit away from herman and open the console and type Help Herman 4, look for the "Meet Herman" quest in the list, you should see a address for that quest next to it, type in console "setstage (YOUR HERMAN CODE HERE!) 10, this will fix herman to were he no longer does the intro chat, now choose to have him follow you, after you do give him and sec to see if he follows you, if he does talk to him, if he walks away with the follower leaves message you have messed up, if it opens up is options like a follower currently following you then youv done it! However herman will have 2 i need you to do somthing and a follow me one even know hes currently with you.
Tyger Oct 12, 2014 @ 11:29am 
can he do stealth?
Satanic_Beige [SB] Oct 5, 2014 @ 3:03pm 
I kind of want him to have an optional quest where he tells you in a very cryptic way about a "diamond in the rough" and gives you clues to find a fortune in flawless gemstones and gold septims.
palkinator89 Oct 1, 2014 @ 5:23pm 
I had a bug where I went to get Herman after subscribing. I walked to where he usually walks up to you to talk (I had this mod a while ago, and just put it back) but he would not talk to me. It gave me the spell, but i couldn't use it yet because i have not met him? And then he would just slowly lumber after me, but not start the initial dialogue? Any ideas?
SturkMaster Sep 20, 2014 @ 10:57am 
I believe there are skeleton models with Ancient Nord armor, but I'm not quite sure...
Valkyr Sep 13, 2014 @ 6:57pm 
please, please tell me how to order things so this little lovely doesn't make all of my AFT followers disappear; he is a delight, but not worth THAT
People like grapes Sep 7, 2014 @ 2:10pm 
This kinda needs to updated to work with follower mods like UFO or AFT.
ИaтєDogg Sep 6, 2014 @ 5:51pm 
Dylan, You need to load a save in bleaks fall.
TheLastThingYouSee Sep 2, 2014 @ 10:37am

Mr.Mudslap Aug 27, 2014 @ 6:36pm

Mr.Mudslap Aug 27, 2014 @ 6:30pm
