Sure, I'll take on a follower. I'm still not quite clear on how it works in 5e, though, so might need some hand-holding.
Sorry, been slammed. I guess I'll try and recruit Engel? Unless Vorodos is already doing that.Things to remember about Followers:
Any NPC that accompanies the adventurers acts as a party member and earns a full share of experience points. But since we're using the Milestone rules, they're always going to be behind you in level.
You don't have to pay them a monthly wage but they do get a share of treasure. I think we'll make it easy by calling it 1/2 a share.
I will be using the Loyalty rules from the DMG.
I will build them but then you guys can decide how they level up.
The bandits are hirelings with MM stats.
Yes, I think we were on the same page there. Teros will become a Follower (trying to do the Guard -> Veteran -> Knight sort of path I guess), while the other two will remain as non-combat retainers from the PHB and will try to stay out of danger in the field, though with us now having more people they are better placed to travel with us if we want.Are you guys definitely taking both of the Followers? If so, I can write them up this weekend.
I think we were going to turn Vorodos' squire into a Fighter-type but leave the other two as non-combat NPCs. Hituro , confirm that we're on the same page there. If so, that leaves Engel the Bard and Jonat the Ranger for Sury and Hiram.
