I am not sure if this is new info here or not but I made a discovery that was delightful and wanted to share it. I already had two followers, Sogg, and Virgil. I went to Ashbury and wanted to save the dog even though my 9 cha would not allow me to take another follower. (Yeah I am softhearted when it comes to dogs) So I walked up to the guy and instead of offering to pay him for the meal he lost, I threatened him (I saved right before this of course). He just gave me the dog and the mutt is now my third follower! And man does he rock! He takes things down in one or two blows that take 7 or 8 from me as master melee and a rather big (4-16pts) sword. Anyway, like I said, this may not be new news but I was excited about it just the same.
