I tried to get a riekling, so I left my follower then got the riekling. My follower went out of the place and disappeared.

I went to where I got her and tried getting her again, but she said "You already have a follower". However, my riekling died earlier. Now I can't get any followers.

Help me please


If you are playing on PC you can use this command:

set playerfollowercount to 0

It will set your follower count to zero, and you should then be able to pick up a new follower.


If you did the companions quest line, Farkas will have a topic which will start a quest and he will be a follower replaced.

  • This actually caused this issue for me. My other follower left and Farkas never properly joined. Now it thinks I have a follower when I don't.
