This mod gives you the ability to recruit captured prisoners that you disarm. You can try as many times as you like, however the chance to join is low, and many have specific conditions to fufill before you can recruit them. The mod will also make some races playable on a new game, as a result of allowing them to be recruited.
There should be about a 1 hour cooldown between most recruit attempts in in game time.
This mod uses almost all original dialogue with hopefully decent variety and writing structure. If there's any typos/grammatical errors or the like, feel free to inform me!

Q . How do I use this mod?
You will need to have prisoner cages built within your base to use this. Once you have some, find an NPC you want to capture and is usable in the mod, knock them out or attack them until they're unconscious, then take them to your cage and talk to them when they're awake. Follow the dialogue tree and fufill what they need to recruit them to have them join you.
Q . Is <NPC> in the mod?
Any and all NPCs that are recruitable within the mod will be on the progress sheet, which you can find here.[docs.google.com] I'm not going to answer comments that ask this, so check the sheet if you want to know!
Q . I can't find an NPC in the spreadsheet. Are they recruitable?
If they're not on the sheet, they're not recruitable.

Q . Can you make this NPC recruitable?
My workflow depends on what I have inspiration to do or ideas for, but if you have a request, please post it in this subforum!
Q . I don't like how difficult this NPC is to recruit! Can you change it?
If I recieve enough feedback that something feels too difficult, or too easy, I may change things. Otherwise, you'll need to go into the FCS and tweak them to your needs.
