Who Should You Choose Between Hunwald, Aelfgar, and Herefrith?
The main story quest Where the Stone Falls requires you to choose between Hunwald, Aelfgar, or Herefrith as the new Ealdorman for Lincolnscire. The candidate you vote for between Hunwald, Aelfgar, and Herefrith will dictate the way the rest of the Lincolnscire arc proceeds. If you want to get the most out of it, we recommend voting for Hunwald or Aelfgar. If you vote for Herefrith, the arc will end immediately after this quest.
What happens if you choose Hunwald, Aelfgar, or Herefrith?
If you choose Hunwald, Herefrith will be revealed as a member of the Order of Ancients and you’ll need to defeat his soldiers before the quest ends. You will also be able to complete the quest A Sword-Shower in Anecastre immediately after this one.
If you choose Aelfgar, the story will play out in much the same way as it does if you choose Hunwald. The only difference is that Hunwald will join your settlement with Swanburrow once The Lay of Hunwald is completed. However, you’ll still be able to construct Hunwald and Swanburrow’s House in your settlement if you chose Hunwald, and Swanburrow will still settle in Ravensthorpe on her own.
If you choose Herefrith you won’t be able to complete the quest A Sword-Shower in Anecastre, and The Lay of Hunwald arc will end. Herefrith will be revealed as a member of the Order of Ancients at a later date, and he will betray you.
