How can I get another housecarl in Skyrim for Xbox?
I was in a cavern getting the horn for the greybeards when Lydia got stuck on a trap with the fire coming out of the floor, she died, and I have not been able to find out where I can get another one. Where and how do I get another housecarl or someone who will follow me on all my quests and help me fight just like Lydia did?

She died a while ago, So I don't want to go back and load the save. She died in the caverns when I was getting the horn for the greybeards and I have done many quests since then. I was hoping to find another way other than re-loading my game and losing so much progress.

    This isn't the right area for this, but I will help you out anyways.

    You can't get another Housecarl anytime you became a Thane of a Region. Inorder to become a Thane, each Jarl will have specific tasks for you to complete in order to became a Thane of their court.

    Once your housecarl dies, they are dead. you have to become thane of another hold and buy a house in order to obtain another housecarl. but they will ONLY be a guard to the house in the hold you obtained them. Lydia is dead for good, thats why i give them heavy armor. you cannot get another one in the same hold.

    There are loads of people who will follow you throughout the game. To get another follower in Whiterun, go to the pub, and brawl  the woman sat at the back, once you beat her she will become a follower.

    Just like in real life.

    I've never tried that in real life.  Maybe I should?

    You can also get a housecarl when/if you obtain the house in RIften and Markharth.  You can also go here to find out more about all the housecarls in Skyrim: elderscrolls.wikia.com/.../index.php

    The house carl is not necessarily the best companion. The Pubs have mercs, that you pay for, or you can do a good deed for some others and they offer their services for free. If you give stuff to a hired helper, they will give it back when you turn them loose. The other folks that offer their help keep everything you give them. You actually have to take back what you want. Faendal was one of my best and the most useful but he finally did get blown up. I had to go back and get all his stuff and now I can use his house.
