Fight Thunder and become mayor (SPOILERS) This is probably old news to most, but might be of news to new people - even newer than me. If you complete the quest to investigate the mayor and free the prisoner, you won't be able to do the quests to court her. If you complete the quests to court the mayor, you can't complete the quest to investigate her and free the prisoner. Is there any way to do both? Last time I married Grey so this time I wanted to be mayor, but I wanted to see if I could still do most of the quests to court her. All you do is talk to the prisoner (doing this first is probably not necessary) and then do all the quests to court Grey including fighting Thunder, but don't talk to her afterwards. If you talk to her afterwards then you can't investigate her. After fighting Thunder, continue with the quest to investigate her. You'll then be able to choose whether you want to marry her and cover up the murder or become mayor and free the prisoner. I am now Maleficus - the face-tattooed, mohawk wearing, horned mayor of Bowerstone. People didn't seem very enthusiastic about me becoming mayor. The news was greeted with only polite applause. I was expecting people to call me "Mr. Mayor" now, but no they all act the same as before. People run when they see me. They scream in terror and drop whatever they're carrying. The guards are also the same. They tell me they're watching me and I'd better not cause trouble. Is that any way for guards to talk to their mayor? Did you know that "maleficus" is a real word? It's Latin. The English version is "malefic". It doesn't sound like English, but it's in the dictionary. It means "evil". Heh heh. So my name is entirely appropriate.
