Kill or Spare the villagers of Kausos is the major dilemma in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Blood Fever side quest. The moral choice in the Village of Kausos is whether to kill a family that’s likely infected with the plague, or spare them and risk the sickness spreading from Kausos to the rest of Kephallonia Island. Since this can end up being a pretty major decision, our AC Odyssey kill or spare villagers guide for Blood Fever quest is going to give you some pointers as to how to solve it.
Kill or Spare Plague Villagers of Kausos – What to do in AC Odyssey Blood Fever Quest?
Whether you’ll spare or kill sick villagers of Kausos is a pretty tough moral dilemma. That being the case, SPOILER WARNING from here on out. The priest will assure you that the villagers begging for mercy are sick, and they will spread the plague further. The villagers don’t exactly help their case when they accidentally mention that they only have a bit of a cough. So, this is your choice: kill the defenseless villagers and their children, or risk the plague spreading further.
Kill or Spare Nikolaos Wolf of Sparta
If you choose “Let these people go” you’ll first get into combat. After you kill the priest and his soldiers, you’ll be prompted to talk to the sick villagers. Here, you will get some further ominous clues, such as them telling you that they feel good enough to travel. You can then either take their money or leave it with them. If you take the money, they will stay put. If you don’t they will leave and try to find a cure. Unfortunately, whichever you choose, it seems to have the same effect. A few hours and quests later, when you return to Kephallonia, you’ll find it ravaged by the plague. Whoopsie.
If you choose “I have no say in this” then you’ve doomed the innocent family and their kids. To be frank, we didn’t have the heart to do this. However, even though they’re dead, you’ve halted the spread of the plague. At least, for the time being. Pray to all the gods of Olympus that it doesn’t spread regardless.
How to start Blood Fever Quest in AC Odyssey?
Blood Fever is a side quest in AC Odyssey. You can pick it up from your little friend Phoibe in Markos’s Vineyard, an area you’ll quickly be familiar with. We got it during the Eye for an Eye quest. Phoibe will tell you about the curse that has befallen the village of Kausos, and send you on your way. From there, all you have to do is track the quest, and it will take you to Kausos. The town is southwest from Mount Ainos, pretty close by the Vineyard.
