Short Description
Followers give the player a perk unique to that particular follower. The perk lasts as long as the player has that follower with them(Includes making them wait somewhere). General description of perks can be found in details.

Details
Welcome everyone! You know what sucks? Skyrim followers. Sure, sure; you've all got your "Ultimate" overhauls for them and they are pretty good. But still, there isn't much incentive for the Dragonborn to use any follower; why? They are simply under-powered in most cases thus making them more of an annoyance than an asset.

No more my friends! This mod adds perks to the player, based upon which follower they currently have which dissipate when you dismiss them or they die! Just like in Fallout New Vegas. All of the followers in Skyrim, Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn have been covered, apart from a few special exceptions. Separate .esps are available to those without all DLCs, but I've also merged those into a "Legendary Edition" which of course requires all DLCs.

This mod contains no scripts, it should be relatively safe to remove if you are not a thrilled with it as I am. I do not suggest removing any mod however, unless you have a save prior to it's install. So please people, back up your saves.

If you remove the mod, enter these commands in the console first.

stopquest bulwarkperkregulator
stopquest bulwarkDLC1perkregulator (If you have Dawnguard plugin)
stopquest bulwarkDLC2perkregulator (If you have Hearthfires plugin)
stopquest bulwarkDLC3perkregulator (If you have Dragonborn plugin)

This mod is the first of it's kind and is a Nexus exclusive, NO re-uploads or asset use anywhere without my permission.

Important Notes:
Not all followers have been tested. The records have been thoroughly checked, I would appreciate you folks keeping an eye out for spells that don't apply in the active effects. Report these to me immediately. I've tried very hard to maintain balance with the effects, using 15 followers however(considering the effects apply after the first) could potentially unbalance the game. All standing compatibility tests have been invalidated, so let me know if you have problems with UFO, AFT or EFF; I should be able to patch those relatively quickly.

Credits:
  • First and foremost; a huge thanks to Madcat221. Without his insights this mod would not have been possible.
  • Bethesda for Skyrim and the Creation Kit.
  • Sharlikran for Tes5Edit
  • The Vampire Dante for the name, mine weren't quite doing it.
  • Dark0ne for nexusmods.com
  • Progapanda for testing
  • Spphy for testing


Permissions:
I give full license to follower mods to create compatibility patches, it will save me the trouble. I would like to be informed about it though, contact me if you have questions on how to do so. Translations are also perfectly fine with me, just drop me a PM so I can link it here. No other reuploads of any kind, especially to Steam. You may ask, but this mod was a great deal of work and it would have to be a great idea for me to allow another author to integrate it.
