If a Housecarl dies, does another take their place, or is that it?

they can't die when you take them with you. they can only be downed but will get back up. no worries

Nope, I never got a new one after Lydia died. I also took one of my housecarls to (spoiler???)

***join the Blades***

and never got a replacement for him either.

They most definitely can die, and when they do, that's it.

Everything's better with zombies. Except pie.

Ah, right.

I'm doing Boethiah's quest, and I was gonna use one of my Housecarls. Might use the dude from Markarth- he gets on my nerves.

Actually if they're stupid enough to walk into Traps and on low enough health they can die, or sometimes they'll get downed just after you've took a swing at a nearby enemy...

To answer your question TC, if they die they don't get replaced. You get one for each house though.

Yes i get your sig/quote reference, aren't you clever?

They can definately die. Lydia's head is currently on my nightstand at Breezehome.

Down on one knee is not dead, that means she has like 5% or less health. In other words use healing hands ASAP. They can and will die, the only followers that can revive are quest related NPCs like in the Thieves guild questline.

Relax, it's just a game.
