The third option, and another ‘not so good’ ending of the quest “A Knight’s Tales“. In this branch you tell the Witch of Lynx Crag that you’ll perform the ritual without her help, and also fail to find the body of Sir Gareth in the caves below her house. Which means that the spirit in the tree will attack you after performing the ritual. The woodcutter will call you a “bungler” for getting the ritual wrong, but at least he and his dog survive. It goes without saying that choosing option one of the three possible outcomes of this quest is by far the best route, but I wanted to show all three branches. See also A Knight’s Tales [Option 2].
