      Is this quest a must-do? I'm playing multiplayer with my partner, and killing them might cause an issue in real life...

        The quest says you can convince your allies to become Sworn instead of killing them, but it seems you actually can't. Even if you're playing as a custom Undead with Fane in your party.

          There is a bug where you can ask the Sallow man to help you kill your companion with a non-main character and it kicks him of the group and you can kill him... Then you are left without a main character and as a result you cant request various things from npcs (like origins to join or kick from ur grp). Probably not intended since the staff that u get from the Shallow man (that does the same thing), when used on the main character gives a game over. It could be useful if used on player made character that you no longer want (only if there are more than one player made chars in the save since it will cause problems if not, and without extra origins in the party because you wont be able to kick them if you weren't the one that invited them in the first place). Though i wouldn't risk it, is like asking for more bugs later on your game.
