Nightingale: How to recruit survivors

Recruiting survivors is quite simple in Nightingale. You will find these named survivors during your journey. Walk up to them and speak to them and thereby complete the task they will ask you to do. If you are successful with that, the survivor in question will join you.

Once a survivor joins you, they become a follower. This means you will be able to take them wherever you want and also control their inventories. You can remove whatever they might be carrying and add what you feel is suitable.

Additionally, you have the option to remove the survivor from your follower list. You need to speak to them and this will remove them from your party. Naturally, you have the option to hire them again depending on your need.

Finally, it is important to mention here that the quests to recruit survivors vary. Different NPCs will have varying needs and it is up to you if you want to complete them.
