I wish there was a mod or even a built-in feature to the game that allowed hearthling progression allowing them to gain stats by doing certain tasks,
mine and haul and gather enough times and gain a point in body
talk, socialize, show you’re caring and interact basically and gain a point in spirit
show interest in certain things like crafting, craft enough things, maybe even have hearthlings that don’t craft randomly find or give them extremely basic crafting for things like extremely low benefit bandages or something immediately after a battle that requires them to defend the town with the combat focused hearthlings, and BAM a Mind point.
I’d love for a mod like this but sadly they don’t exist
