Skyrim Players Can Now "Grow" Their Own Follower, And It's Horrifying

You know what The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been missing this whole time? The ability to cultivate your own followers and pluck them from the dirt like fleshy turnips. 


Thank goodness, then, for the Louis Cultivation Kit mod. As spotted by The Gamer, this utterly bizarre Skyrim mod allows players to grow their own followers, all called Louis. The mod actually started doing the rounds way back in 2013, but has since resurfaced. Why? I couldn’t say. Just be glad that it did. 

Take a look at some of the best Skyrim wins and fails below!



If you have the mod installed, growing your very own Louis couldn’t be simpler. You’ll head to Arcadia's Cauldron in Whiterun, where you’ll want to purchase the Louis Seed. With the Louis Seed in your possession, you’ll head back to your homestead and pop it in the ground. Obviously to own a Homestead you will need to own the Hearthstone expansion or one of the versions of Skyrim that comes with all the DLC included. 

The Louis Seed doesn’t require much in the way of care or attention. All you need to do is wait a day or two for him to grow, at which point you can harvest him and have him follow you as a companion. It’s important to note your new Louis will be completely naked, so make sure you have weapons and armour for him. 

Oh, and the best part is harvesting your Louis will net you more Louis seeds. You can grow more and have up to 10 following you at any time, so you can finally start the miniature army of home-grown humans you never knew you needed.
