There are a lot of companions in this mod, making it impossible to have all at once by normal means. There is a starting perk in the game called "Natural Leader" which heals your wounded troops by a percentage based on your Charisma and Leadership skill. This fits very well with having high persuasion and in having this you can persuade your companions to stay in your party depending on how high your persuasion is at. Having 8 or more makes it easy to persuade companions to stay in your party. However, you get companion complaints around every 1 in game day, this can make it frustrating to play in the long run.

The Kingsguard

Ser Arys Oakheart of the Kingsguard

The Kingsguard are a special set of seven potentially recruitable companions. The Kingsguard can be possibly recruited upon freeing them from captivity.

The dialogue for recruiting the Kingsguard only spawns, when they are imprisoned. To potentially recruit them, you need to attack the party or besiege the settlement where they are imprisoned. After winning the battle/siege, you can ask them what they are doing now and if they want to join you. Then they have a 50/50 chance of joining you. that they join you.
