In every area, players may run into free-spirit NPCs with ties to no nation. Such NPCs are known as "freelances". On such encounters you may be able to recruit these characters, enlisting them to temporarily serve the efforts of the Allied Forces. Freelances recruited in such a manner will not only participate directly in combat, but will also come to have an influence on the armies and countries which they serve under, and may even form their own ranks to lead in battle.

Freelance NPCs

The following is a list of the NPCs and the individual methods of influencing them to join your home nation. All Freelance NPCs can only be influenced once before zoning. If a Freelance NPC has been influenced sufficiently they become allied to the nation who contributed the most after that week's Campaign tallyVerification Needed.

Freelance NPCs can offer unique and powerful attacks to a nations force during a Campaign Battle. A nation which employs Titania gains the benefit of a reduced exp. loss sigil bonus.
