Leadership Score: Your Leadership score equals your level plus any Charisma modifier. Outside factors can affect a character’s Leadership score, as detailed in the Leadership feat.

Cohort Level: You can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of your Leadership score, you can’t recruit a cohort of your level or higher.

Number of Followers by Level: You can lead up to the indicated number of characters of each level.

*The maximum cohort level increases by 1 for every 2 points of Leadership above 40.

**The number of 1st-level followers increases by 100 for every point of Leadership above 40.

You can command one-tenth as many 2nd-level followers as 1st-level followers. You can command one-half as many 3rd-level followers as 2nd-level followers, one-half as many 4th-level followers as 3rd-level followers, and so on (round fractions up, except any fraction less than 1 rounds to 0). You can’t have a follower of higher than 20th level.
