(Yet another thing I didn't find online, and figured out myself. If it was posted previously, I apologize.) There are times when people have to go. Expulsion rarely works, and you take a morale hit. Switching to them and letting yourself get eaten also lowers morale. I've only done it twice, just to unlock Jacob and Erik. The good news is that you don't have to burn 100 influence and have them tag along, or wait for a morale mission or a zed hunt. 1. Pull up the character select screen and find one that is away from home, and choose the "Check In" option. Lily will tell you where to find them. 2. Stock up on snacks and meds, as you may need them. 3. Go to where they're at, and try to pick up a horde in the area. (FYI - A feral or juggernaut rarely will kill an NPC. They will kill you though. Don't bother with them.) 4. Lead the horde to the NPC, and be in the general vicinity. You could even drop some noisemakers/flares near the NPC if necessary. You may want to be far enough away just in case they go out with a bang. 5. Take care of what's left of the horde, and bring back their belongings. A few days ago I had recruited a large number of people looking for Marcus. (Kept having Lily radio for survivors.) I ended up with 38 total at the end, when I typically keep my group at 16 or less. Yes, I felt slightly guilty afterwards.
