Not So Silent or Holy Night

Not gunna lie, this quest was one hell of a ride(pun-intended).

The initial part in the bar is a long-winded segment where Henry and Father Godwin talk through what happened at Skalitz, come to an agreement about what information surrounding the crimes at Neuhof can be shared, and ultimately discuss religion at large. I was happy to see the game implement timed responses in certain parts. While I don’t want every dialog option to be timed, I do hope they get used more heavily as the game progresses.

Once the dialog ends, what follows can only be described as a series of hijinks. Between getting in a bar fight, ringing the church bell in the middle of the night, consorting with Father Godwin’s concubines, and chasing sheep through the fields; This segment is easily the funniest part of the game thus far. It is great to see the game not take itself too seriously, and I hope more of these “just for fun” segments sprinkled throughout the game.

The coup de grace of this quest was when Henry has to give a sermon to Father Godwin’s congregation. This segments requires you to think back to your earlier conversation with Godwin where he describes how Jan Hus, a priest in Prague, speaks to his congregation. These dialog choices mixed with a series speech checks determine if you are successful in inspiring the congregation.

Fortunately, I was able to pull it off, and as a result I was able to get the information I needed to continue the quest.

However, the greatest lesson learned from this quest was that if you are going to give a church sermon, remember to put on some clothes before you do it…
