The DragonBorn Disciples

Last Follower Pack, perfect for those who can't get enough of Waifu/OverPowered companions.

This is a compilation of seven (7) overpowered NPC. All the base presets were collected around the web, from 3DM Forum (from the work of Stupded and 
Wangruanyifu), Nexus (Windofriver), Loverslab (Gvman3670) and Naver Cafe.

This mod can be considered as a cheat mod, since the followers are overpowered , with lots of perks, some good spells and a couple of shouts, plus you can found some great starter equipment and money inside the dwemer dresser right after the entrance door and some goodies around the house.

Please consider this a WIP. I'm still tweaking their combat AI.



REQUIREMENTS: 

- Dragonborn DLC
- Dawnguard DLC

HIGLY RECOMENDED MODS FOR A BETTER GAMING EXPERIENCE: 

- A follower manager (Amazing Follower Tweaks is my suggestion but another is fine too) 
- Follower Commentary Overhault
- Dynamic Follower Dialogue
- Unnoficial Patches (Legendary or Modular)
- Fix Lip Synch

THE FOLLOWERS

You can pick them near Riverwood inside a Dwemer ruin that you can also use as a very basic starting player house. The location is automatically displayed in your map (Disciples Outpost).

They all use vanilla assets (equipment, voices, spells) so the outfit appearance will chance depending on your armor/weapon mods installed.

They all have an health/mana regeneration equipment, Skeleton Key (open any lock) and the light foot perks (to avoid trap trigging).

Ava - Battlemage, uses staves and magic




Daphne - Ranger, Dual Katanas and Bow




Felicia - Nightingale, Dual Swords and Bow




Katleen - Fighter, 1H Sword/Shield and Bow




Lucika - Paladin. 2H Greateaxe and Bow




Nicole - Dragonhunter, Dual War Axes and Bow




Wanda - Thief, Dual Daggers and Crossbow




LOCATION:




CHANGE BASE BODY:

By default, UNP is used as base body for the followers. 

If you want them to use your body type:
1 - Browse your 

Skyrim\data\meshes\actors\character\ 

and create a new folder called 

Disciplesfollowers

Inside this folder create another one called 

Body

Your folder path should look like this: 

\Skyrim\data\meshes\actors\character\disciplesfollowers\Body\

2 - leave the \Disciplesfollowers\Body\ folder window open. Now we need to find and copy the body files that will override the default ones.

3 - open another browse files window, go to your 

Skyrim\Data\meshes\actors\character\character assets\ 

folder and SELECT TO COPY the following .nif files:
* femalebody_0
* femalebody_1
* femalefeet_0
* femalefeet_1
* femalehands_0
* femalehands_1

4 - drop the files in your 

\Disciplesfollowers\body\ (COPY THE FILES, DO NOT MOVE THE FILES)

Done.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND GENERAL TIPS:

- After recruit them, REMOVE THE HUNTING BOW that is automatically added to the follower inventory;
- Use a follower manager to make your life easier;
- The Map Marker isn't there? Go to your Skirim folder, execute SkyrimLauncher and check if the DiscipleFollowers.esp is activated on the Data Files; if you use a Mod Manager (NMM or Mod Organizer - wise decision), make sure the plugin is activated.
- Crash when entering the Disciples Outpost? Probably a memory issue, be sure to read about SKSE, that will stabilize your game A LOT.
