If My housecarl dies, will I be able to get another one? I need to know because I have mine travel with me everywhere and I pretty much mean everywhere.


If your housecarl, or any other follower for that matter dies in earnest, then they are gone forever (discounting console voodoo).

However, there are plenty of other followers that appear depending on where you are in various storylines and you also can gain a housecarl for each of the major cities too (indeed for every hold with the Hearthfire DLC), so yes - you can get another one, but not from the same hold!

No they are gone for good but for a fee you can hire a follower that will follow you for a set amount of time. These followers are found on the roads of Skyrim, and usually in taverns such as the drunken huntsman up in Whiterun's middle district.

    Hi, Jon, welcome to Arqade. I've removed your question from your answer because that's not how we work. Feel free to ask it as a separate question, but try searching first; maybe someone's already asked it! – Frank Aug 9 '13 at 20:25

The only way to get your follower back when they die is to load an old save.
