Event Dialogue

<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.
  1. "Nobody from the <your> clan killed <Z>!"
  2. Pay 10 cows.
  3. Pay 20 cows.
  4. Pay 30 cows.

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.
