Report on Knight Errantry Activities in the Duchy of Toussaint
As per Minister Tremblay's decree numbered EK/13/w/z, each and every knight errant erring within the Duchy of Toussaint's borders is required to offer immediate and unconditional aid to any companions in distress. By the power of said decree, each knight thus rendering aid will be rewarded according as per the following: a remuneration of the "Heron" type (in the case of aid in a battle against one human opponent) or of the "Crane" type (in the case of aid in a battle against more than one human opponent or a non-human opponent), to be paid from the funds of the knight receiving aid within one fiscal month.
Above-mentioned "Crane"-type remuneration has been awarded to the witcher Geralt of Rivia, who lent assistance to Sir Michel Zevaco. Sir Zevaco was traversing the area near Fox Hollow in relation to a vow which he had sworn and which required him to rid said village of a pestilence of the vandaguilder sort related to the criminal organization of one Loth Halfbreed. While providing assistance, Sir Zevaco and the witcher eradicated several of Loth Halfbreed's henchmen, pursuant to Her Illustrious Grace's Order of March 24th, 1264, on the Protection of the Borderlands.
The standard pay for the completion of such a task was lowered by 2.5% to take into account the tax on the use of foul words and immediate payment in species.
