|Weregild or Bust|
When you go raiding, people will die. Orlanthi use the system of weregild to prevent the whole society from descending into one violent, chaotic mess...
|“|| <X>, a thane of the <Y> clan, sweeps into your hall, four grim warriors at his side. Last season, his nephew, <Z>, was killed by <W>, a member of your clan. <X> demands 30 cows as compensation for his kinsmen's death.
Simple choice. Either you pay the weregild (and the amount), or you don't.
- You can claim your clan didn't kill <Z>, but the other clan won't believe it.
- If you do pay, remember 20 cows is the standard payment for a thane.
- <X> will take 10 cows, but this will incense his clan (though not as much denying responsibility).
- Paying 30 cows will maintain good relations, but your carls may not like paying more than tradition dictates.
