This section contains major spoilers about the ending of The Tale of Thegn Oswald story arc. Read on if you do NOT mind spoilers.

Killing Rued results in a smooth wedding ceremony for Oswald and Valdis during the Wedding Horns quest.

Sparing Rued results in a different scenario for the Wedding Horns quest. Rued eventually crashes the celebration and challenges Oswald to a holmgang to the death. You can choose to either let Oswald fight or fight for him.

It is also important to note that Finnr may move to your settlement as a Jomsviking depending on your decisions from this point onward.

He will join the Raven Clan if you decide to either kill Rued now or fight for Oswald when Rued crashes the wedding celebration during the Wedding Horns quest.
