You don't need a mod to get one as a follower. You just don't have a follower with you and you can get one of the rieklings from the Mead Tavern and then pick up a normal follower even after you get the riekling. Also they are essential so they can't die except from your hand. I call mine Quincy.
Oh but I killed them. And I think I helped the people to move back to the Tavern and since I killed their "leader", they kinda hate me too. I'll side with the rieklings next time, thought I know I will have to kill their king. Stupid little fellows.
I did that at first too. Then, when I realized I'll have to fight that dumbass Riekling Chief, I reloaded my save and chose to fight with the people instead. I wanted to be friends with the Rieklings, so I was like "Either no one dies or EVERYONE dies."
I saw some modded goblin or whatever the hell that was the other day... it looked a lot like a bigger, green riekling It was walking with some Stormcloaks (????). I'm not entirely sure what it was because it's not my game/mods.
Yes indeed! They both have this weird wicked humor to them, and some perverted aspects as well. The only difference to me is that while I find Rieklings adorable and funny, I'm still shitless scared of the Falmer.
