You are not the only hero in Prophesy of Pendor. Across the lands, you may find characters in taverns who will be willing to aid you...for a price.Companions are much more expensive in Pendor, often costing thousands of denars to hire (Sir Roland, the most expensive companion, costs 8000 denars). However, in most cases, companions are far more advanced than in Native and come with stronger equipment. For example, Lethaldiran is recruited at level 42 and comes with Noldor armor and a Noldor bow and arrows, with weapon proficiencies over 400.
As of version 3.7, companions' starting skills and experience are slightly randomized per save file. Also, their starting levels have been lowered.

Strategy: Companion Combinations Edit
These combinations are thought to avoid any conflicts within the party which often result in your companions leaving. Some combinations will allow the player some actions whilst other combinations, will allow other actions..
- You can add Ansen+Sir Rayne for versatility or Boadice+Frederic for more asskicking power.
- -Do not raid villages,steal from peasants or rob merchants, otherwise Leslie, Diev and Boadice will be upset.
- -Do not run from battles, or Sir Alistair, Sir Rayne and Frederick will be upset.
- -Do not fail quests, or Alyssa will be upset.
- -Do not fail to feed or pay the troops, do not get slaughtered or Kaverra, Siggy, Lethaldiran, Julia and Ansen will be upset.
- You can add ANY combination of the inner circle to this build. Why? Well, because even if you pick disliking companions from the inner circle, you have the one he/she likes (from the outer) so it makes up for the dislike. BUT don't take more than 2 from the inner circle, because when picking 3, one companion will be with his 2 disliked, making the 1 liked insufficient to please him within the party, picking 4 from the inner circle will result in all of them meeting both of their disliked, resulting in them asking to leave your party.
- -Do not raid villages, steal from peasants or rob merchants, otherwise Jocelyn and Roland will be upset.
- -Do not run from battles, or Donavan, Ediz and Sara will be upset.
- -Do not fail to feed or pay the men, do not get slaughtered or Adonja, Kassim and Riva will be upset.
- Alistair-Adonja-Donavan-Kassim-Ediz-Riva-Alyssa-Ansen (the upside to this choice is you get Ansen and Alyssa) OR Alistair-Siggy-Donavan-Kassim-Ediz-Riva-Sara-Sir Rayne (the upside to this choice is you get Sigismund and Sir Rayne).
-With both of these groups, feel free raid villages, steal from poor miserable peasants, rob merchants and get away with it.
-This is probably the most hard core, kick ass warring joint ever.
- -Though you lack a medic with this build.
- -Feel free to run from battles as much as you like, surrender, pay off bullies and bandits, leave some men behind to cover your escape, and even then everyone is happy!
Upon this seven, you can either add: Alistair + Alyssa or Roland + Sara by choice.
- -It would appear that Double A's would be a better choice, unless you're a big fan of funny moustaches and man-eaters.
- -The upside of this build is that you don't have to feed your men any more, or pay them. No companions will object. You can get slaughtered like lambs, and everyone's happy.
- -This build is also quite versatile in skills distribution of companions.
- -But the downside is it has all the rest of the some packages mentioned already. So, can't go raiding stuff or surrendering, or failing quests with this group.
Companions as Lords Edit
Much like native, you can grant fiefs to your companions if you become a King. Some companions will field special, elite troops along with their normal culture troops. All companions start with 1000 renown if turned into vassals.
|Personality||Social Class||Common Troops||Special Troops|
|Boadice||6000||Martial||Noble||Fierdsvain||Veccavi & Maidens|
|Diev||4000||Good-natured||Commoner||Ravenstern||Knights of the Dragon|
|Lethaldiran||6000||Calculating||Noble||Pendor||Noldor Warriors, Rangers and Maiden Rangers|
|Sir Alistair||5000||Martial||Noble||Pendor||Order of Eventide|
|Sir Jocelyn||5000||Good-natured||Commoner||Sarleon||Order of the Lion|
|Sir Rayne||5000||Martial||Noble||Pendor||Order of the Falcon|
|Sir Roland||8000||Upstanding||Noble||Pendor||Order of the Dawn|
In bold good personalities and good social status. For further information about lord personalities click here. Making a commoner a vassal will make your relation with many lords (not only the ones in your kingdom), the ones with bad personalities, dislike you by a couple of relation points.
- Normally, the maximum amount of companions you can comfortably have at once is 10.
- If you have 10 Persuasion, you can have all of the companions in your party, as you will be persuasive enough to prevent them from leaving.
- Ansen, Leslie and Sara the Fox are good candidates for INT/CHA party skills that you will not be levelling up.
- For high-level companions, like Lethaldiran and Sir Roland, investing Qualis Gems for the Dust of Twilight will allow them to become even stronger without needing to grind for EXP.
- Regarding Custom Knighthood Orders, plan accordingly as you want high trainer skill to pass over STR, AGI and Weapon Proficiency in a timely manner.
