No bodyguards in 1.0?

Currently viewing this thread:

Anyone else miss the the bodyguard feature? For me they always make exploring scenes more enjoyable, and immersive, as an influential lord/king/merchant/captain should never be traveling alone. They're also useful during night ambushes too, and it's always fun watching them cut down belligerent drunks in taverns.

They were removed a few versions ago. Currently there are no plans to add them back in.
Please could you consider adding them again?
I don't know why you removed them, but they add one more layer to immersion and RP, for those purposes maybe you could set a very high renown level to get them, it feels odd to be a super powerful lord/lady and don't have your guards with also feels a bit lonely, you can command an army, but when you wanna go to the bar, you are alone:wink:

EDIT: wasn't there a toggle?

I play on 1.13 and can purchase bodyguards from one of the personal assistants. Too bad they spawn in battle and get killed easily though, even when placing them at the bottom of the pack.
