Wow - the followers for the LN Lyran is the most random chart I've seen for a while - everything from a pride of wemics to 1-4 chambermaids of 1-2 hp each.Dragon Issue 106: February 1986
A plethora of paladins: Yay!
Anyone ever used a chambermaid in a game for anything useful or noteworthy? (in a D&D sense, that is). You're more likely to end up with 1-12 unskilled persons, which sounds vaguely useless, if you're not evil.
Meanwhile the illrigger (LE) has a slight chance of gaining any of the following followers from 2nd level on - 20-200 duergar plus females and young; 6-24 mites; 1 blue dragon, or several devils - hang on, only allowed if the illrigger has more HD than the follower - don't know how that works for a horde of hobgoblins, but it's a very detailed NPC villain if anyone wants...
