Permissions and credits

As the name implies, Paxon is a "Pack" Rat.

He's difficult to kill, hard to lose, and can carry a lot of stuff. He will also fight beside you.

Paxon can be found in the courtyard of the Census and Excise Office, in Seyda Neen.

Give him stuff to carry and try not to trip over him.

( It's not a very complicated mod to play. )

Your new Pack Rat has several useful companion features:

  • Paxon can act as a light source.
  • He can be healed with potions via dialogue.
  • He levitates and water walks with the player.
  • He will warp behind the player if he lags far behind.
  • He can be summoned to your location with his magic acorn.
  • You can inspect his stats, and see how your Pack Rat is doing.
  • He can be instructed to Wait or Follow by sneaking and activating him.
  • He can warp with you when you use Recall, Intervention, or scripted teleports.
  • Paxon levels with the player, his stats increase as your character's stats increase.
  • Players can ask a Guard where Paxon is, and he will be warped to a nearby tavern.
  • You can easily swap places with him by jumping and activating him, or via dialogue.
  • He can be toggled into 'Durable Mode' via dialogue, making him functionally invulnerable.
  • Paxon has 'Potion Saver' code, meaning your Pack Rat will not drink all your health potions!
  • There is a variety of NPC commentary on your new buddy via the "My Pack Rat" topic. Ask around!
