Does Oswald survive the fall in AC Valhalla? The quest line "The Tale of Thegn Oswald" centers on Oswald, an Anglo-Saxon client-king who rules East Anglia while the Danes occupy the region. Oswald seeks peace for the region, and he enlists Eivor in his mission. Unfortunately, the would-be king appears to meet an unfortunate end after one mission. What happens to him? Spoilers ahead.

Does Oswald Survive the Fall in AC Valhalla?

During the quest line, Oswald appears to have died defending the village of Theotford from Rued's clansmen. Eivor tells Theotford Reeve as much during the mission "Raising Iron." But little do they know, Oswald is, in fact, still alive. Rued has simply taken him captive.

Completing the quest line, the player will come face to face with Rued and defeat him in single combat to save the caged Oswald. Oswald continues to play a role in the quest line, setting up a decision that will have long-reaching consequences in the game.
