Show Notes

If you’re playing a tabletop roleplaying game, you know the importance of having a party of characters – the adventuring party. But beyond the characters who are the primary focus of play, there are other followers, hirelings, minions, pets, and sidekicks that can bring even more flavor to your game. In this blog post, we’ll explore what cohorts, followers, hirelings, minions, pets, and sidekicks are, and how to make sure they work with your game. So gather your party and let’s begin!
