Select your Escorts

Select your Escorts

Allows you to choose which escorts you will encounter at the start of the game.
You may change the future encounters in the game menu (Esc).

There is an option to choose a random escort in case you just wanted to guarantee some unlocks before continuing with the base game's behavior.

Note: You're only supposed to be able to choose the lost tinker once. (Must have the Embers of Rage DLC and unlocked by playing in the Orcs campaign)
Note: Unfortunately the only time that addons can get the possible escort types is after the random escort quest is assigned.
This means escorts added by other addons will not be available for selection, but will still be possible to find using the random selection.

Error in 2.1.1

Getting an error instead of my second escort https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/974352614527020092/AF75BCBEDC659351ECF99C94F2756E299B839A36/

I also get an error when I attempt to click on the settings option https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/974352614527023539/326A8CA01CC3BC8EA2E0B12D2A7824CAF0EE6791/

Thanks for making the mod this really helps out in planning out some builds specifically that tinker.

Can you link your character

Thanks for attaching a screenshot of the error.

Can you link your character or any other addons you're using?

Do you get the same issue (on a new character) if you disable those? If you can narrow it down to the conflicting addon I may be able to make this addon compatible.

From the error, it looks like the game state is missing the variables I use to keep track of your selections. Can you upload your character save so I can inspect it? (on Windows it is located at C:\Users\YourName\T-Engine\4.0\tome\save\)

New Bug on versions 2.0.X

I've been getting a lua error everytime I would otherwise get an escort. I know that the "Report Error" button doesn't send anything to mod makers, so: https://imgur.com/a/aoaUuq7

I really like the mod, btw. It saves me a world of worry.

Version 2.1 is out

Hi freepaperclips,

I've made some bug fixes and improvements, please try 2.1.1.
You can now change your selections using the game menu (Esc).

Thanks,

Possible bug causes some escort quest to fail

You know how sometimes escort quest do not trigger on certain levels, so you have to backtrack later if you're missing some?

It seems like this addon forces that quests to activate anyway BUT it does not, however, spawn escorts themselves. So you're stuck on a level with a quest that will instafail if you try to leave and no way to complete it.

Well after trying it some more

This is a awesome addon, but it seems to be causing some bugs atleast with the latest tome version.

I just got a bug popup right before getting to select a escort, seems to rarely corrupt quest data (I've seen that as well
were I couldn't open my quest log).

I'm using escorts enhanced (makes escorts follow you), unlimited respec, talent planner, and alchemy woes: only one provider, so any
of those could be interacting with it, but I'd think that only escorts enhanced covers the same area but you never know.

From a end user standpoint, it seems to work for awhile, then one of your escorts does something it doesn't like and
it bugs right before getting to select your escort and I've seen it do a few different things from that point on, spit
out a error message and keep working, or bug out and not spawn the escort correctly.

I love this addon, have you been playing at all lately to have worked out a fix?

Fixed

Hi Lemille,

I pushed a new version that should hopefully fix it.
If you encounter the error message again please take a screenshot of the error (in-game reporting doesn't send anything to addon devs).

As far as I know, escorts enhanced should not conflict with this addon.

Thanks

Still bugged as of 1.48

Not sure if you have fixed this for the 1.5 release but in the previous bugfix version it was still possible for escorts to not appear in unreachable zones (mainly Dreadfell) Where you would get an escort popup, select an escort, and as doors block paths, no escort will spawn. in default tome behaviour if no escort can be spawned on a designated level due to closed doors, the quest does not begin. And if you open paths and come back later the next time you load the level the escort will spawn, the quest will begin and you can proceed. With the addon however the quest begins, no escort can spawn, and the quest fails when you leave the level with no recourse. I did have Bonus Escorts installed as well, which may have conflicted.

Apparently there was a bug

Apparently there was a bug with ToME itself that allowed the escorts to be overwritten:
