In the quest "Night to Remember" I hit Gleda the goat when I killed the giant and now Gleda follows me and tries to kill me. What should I do with her to get her to calm down or just die? The quest flags her as essential so I can't just kill her.

  • Do you know the Calm spell? If not, what if you just try to continue the quest? Glenda probably won’t be able to kill you before you hand her off. Commented Nov 26, 2016 at 16:31
  • Goats can attack? I always thought they just ran away from their problems.

I just tried this on my own game to see how you could get around it. After killing the giant I unloaded a bunch of Lightning Bolts into her to get her really angry.

All of Calm, Pacify and Harmony worked on her and caused her to become passive again (she's only level 3, so even at very low levels Calm should work). I also found that simply putting my weapons away caused her to become passive again as well.

Speculating, but the Imperial racial power Voice of the Emperor probably won't work as it only states that it affects Humanoids.

Disclaimer: I used a modded PC Legendary Edition client to test this, with all of the unofficial patches installed. It shouldn't cause any difference but there's always the possibility that it might.


Try to reload any save before you attacked the goat. Then try to kill the giant without touching the goat, and then go back to Rorikstead.

You could also use a Calm Spell too. If you don't have one, they can be bought from any mages.
