About this mod

Many named NPCs are now essential. This mod is valuable for people who hate to lose those named NPCs by making them all essential or protected. This should be completely vanilla compatible so anyone can download.

If you're like me and you get upset or annoyed when NPCs with names die then this mod is perfect for you. I've made the following npcs essential or protected.
