It looks like HimeWorks made a Ruby plugin for this, but I can't seem to find a way to do this in MV.
http://himeworks.com/2013/03/event-followers/

Is there a way to have one event/character follow another event/character around randomly with or without a plugin? My end goal is to create a herd of animals that wander around the map randomly, but as a group. If Event 001 has a random path, I'd like to have Event 002, Event 003, etc... stay within a few tiles of Event 001.

you'll need pathfinding for that, either by eventing or by plugin. There is no default for that.

pathfinding by eventing is possible, but requires a lot of logic inside the events and you need to know how to program pathfinding.
so your best bet is to search for one of the plugins for pathfinding. There are several.

Thank you Andar! I'll use the term "pathfinding" when looking for a solution. It's good to know I can do it through eventing alone.

You could just make them go in a pretty weird path that looks random instead... it would save a bunch of time and seem like it's random?

@Anchovy You can use Yanfly's Move Route Core to get more control of the movement of events and characters. Use the MOVE TO: EVENT x command in the move route box of an event and have it set to repeat.

UHHHHH. What is this and how did someone find my game on here? 1653527395160.png

my game has distinct areas where travel through what are known as "battle stations" these are more or less areas to explore and fight. occasionally, you'll stumble across secret rooms with sidequests ready to be taken. this area is in the high school attic of all places... but how do ya get there is the question.

So this flat Earther named Mike Hughes build his own rocket to prove that the Earth was flat. But on liftoff he still had the ladder he climbed up to the rocket laying against it. Needless to say things didn't go as planned.
