Chapter 7: The Slayer And The Slain

Reach the corpse-filled Boersgard and investigate the docks. Speak to Iver after and observe the gathering dredge. Receive Iver’s opinion, and find a safe place for the caravan to stay. Place them in abandoned houses, and use guards to defend them.

On the next day, find a source of supplies for your people. Find out what the Ravens know about supplies, and offer him your mead. Things are bad now, so join Iver at the wall to defend the city against dredge.

After the battle with dredge at the wall, return to Iver and speak to him about Bellower. Head to the docks and investigate the riot. While it doesn’t seem like much use, try to calm the people down. More violence isn’t needed.

In the final hour, Hakon and his caravan will cut through the dredge to assist the city. Prepare for a battle and defeat the incoming wave of dredge. When Juno asks you to join her on a quick journey, inquire about the details.

Reach the godstone with Juno and have a conversation with her. Climb high up onto the godstone searching for loose silver. Grab a piece, and press your luck for another handful. Return to Juno with the metal, and head back to the city.

Travel to the crafter so he will forge you an arrow out of the silver. Speak with Alette about shooting Bellower, and let her take the arrow. Speak to Juno at the wall and discuss the plan. Before facing Bellower, rank up your allies and equip any items that may help. Remember to assign skill points for extra armor break, strength, and protection.

When you are ready, confront Bellower on the battlefield. Juno will give you advice on what to do, but you must have a 100% chance to hit Bellower with the silver arrow before attacking. This means you must drain his armor. If you do not do it quickly, his armor will recharge. Furthermore, save at least one willpower to use the arrow. If an ally has initiative, you can lower his shields and immediately send Alette in for the shot.

When you have a 100% chance to strike, select Alette and use the special ability to hit Bellower with the arrow. The second wave of the battle will begin. Attack Bellower with full force and put him down for good.

The dredge will flee the battlefield, but at a cost. Speak to Eyvind and begin the honor ceremony for Alette. The dredge are no longer a threat, and it is time to move on to somewhere safe. Depart from Boersgard and set off on your next journey.
