Unicorn Overlord Gammel Guide – Free or Execute?

Gammel is an enemy character you’ll face before rescuing Scarlett in Unicorn Overlord, but like most enemy characters in the game, he isn’t all bad. In fact, after defeating him in battle, he will explain his reasoning for becoming a thief and allow you to grow some sympathy for him.

As Alain, it’s your responsibility to decide if the thief should pay for his crimes or if he deserves a second chance. There are some pros and cons to both situations and here’s what they are:

Set Him FreeHand Him to the Town Watch
Rewards:
Recruit’s Shortbow x1
Beckoning Bell x1
Cornia Militia x1
Rewards:
Recruit’s Shortbow x1
Beckoning Bell x1
Cornia Militia x1
10,000 War Funds
Impact:
Recruit Rolf to your party
Potential ally in Gammel later on
Impact:
Recruit Rolf to your party
Gammel remains an enemy and plots his revenge

While there isn’t much of a difference between the two choices, I would suggest setting him free rather than handing him over to the Town Watch. Although handing him over will earn you some quick funds, having him as a potential ally later on will benefit you in the long run.

Thieves are great at dodging attacks and can be a defensive figure for your party. Plus, you can earn more funds as you continue your journey anyway, so avoiding having another enemy on your hands is best.
