Followers are units that accompany heroes as combat support. Followers can be either hired, obtained through spells/enchantments or charmed (animals and undead; cultists and priests). Like heroes, followers gain exp in combat. Some followers can upgrade into another type after attaining sufficient experience. However, heroes who fight in combat with followers will have their own experience gain reduced since the experience gained from winning a fight is distributed among all members of the party. Thus it's more beneficial to hire several followers, rather than keeping just one.

EXAMPLE: A battle yields 1000 experience. With one follower the hero would gain 500 exp, with 2 followers - 333 exp. with 3 - 250 exp. with 4 - 200 exp. So the difference between 2 and 4 followers is a meager 133 experience. This value goes down more and more, the more followers one has.

Followers who have died, can be revived either at the Temple to Agrela or the Temple to Krypta. Dead followers do not "take up" gained xp from the hero, nor do they affect combat in any way. Barbarians are unable to revive followers since they have no access to either of the aforementioned temples.

Bondsman

Bondsman.gif
Bondsmen are fighters bonded to a specific clan. They are sworn to defend it, and its members, to the death. They have been trained to fight defensively ever since they gave their oath. This has reduced their attacking abilities a bit, though. Generally, they use halberds in combat, though some clans have been known to train them in the use of other weapons.
