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 in the 400s.
As of version 3.7, companions' starting skills and experience are slightly randomized per save file. Also, their starting levels have been lowered.
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.

- 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.
