What to Say to Sigfred in the Longhouse
When you enter the longhouse and speak with Sigfred a cutscene will begin, during which Eivor will have the following dialogue options:
“We are warriors.”
“We need not fight to feast.”
“This is a celebration for our dead.”
It doesn’t matter which of these dialogue options you choose, as the outcome will be the same. At this point Sigfred is impossible to reason with, blinded by grief and a voracious desire for revenge.
What Happens if You Fight Sigfred?
After the scene in the longhouse, you’ll meet Sigfred by the burial mounds in Melun. Here you’ll find that he’s looking for a fight with Eivor, goading you into it. You can choose to fight Sigfred here, or calm his rage with words. If you want to fight, choose the second dialogue option each time. If you want to calm Sigfred with words, choose the first dialogue option each time. This will result in him leaving the clan, stating that he will set out alone to find a new way.
If you do choose to fight Sigfred, it will result in his death. Toka will appear to say a few words over the body, and a funeral will be held shortly after. Toka will forgive you for killing Sigfred, but the deer appearing on the hillside will serve as a reminder that calming him was always an option, which could have spared Toka her grief.
Regardless of the outcome, once Sigfred is gone, Toka will be left to lead the clan.
