The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Count Romilly's Journal (Part 1)

[Entries in chronological order, last few pages missing, torn out]

This craft has proved even more profitable than I had anticipated. Five of the last seven kidnappings ended in success. Only two of the lads had fathers too miserly to ransom their sons. Clearly was more offspring where those came from, so the calculating knaves deemed the captured snots expendable (note for the future: demand a significantly smaller ransom from clients with more than one male heir).

I sent the lads after Anastasia von Bourmann. The lord of Zuetzer Castle is a magnificently wealthy noble and Anastasia is his only child – I smell a lucrative transaction.

The lads returned with the client's daughter that very night. The girl is calm, apathetic, even.

Something strange is afoot in the castle surroundings. Flocks of ravens perch in the trees bordering the courtyard. This morning a new contingent flew in. Two serving maids have gone missing. Could my lads have been responsible? Or did those ravens peck them to death?

One of my grooms has died. From what the remaining servants recount, he was killed by tree roots that suddenly thrust straight out of the ground! My men are petrified. Wolves howl day and night in the lands surrounding the estate.

Leaving the castle walls means certain death. We have barricaded ourselves inside and live as if under siege. Luckily we've ample supplies of food and water. Perhaps this is some kind of curse?

Franz, the servant who led the unit that kidnapped Anastasia, has hanged himself! Black magic is surely at work! I must search the castle library for some indication what this might be.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Geralt rejoins his long-lost lover, Yennefer, in the town of White Orchard. Yennefer tells him that Emperor Emhyr has summoned him to the city of Vizima. Emhyr tasks Geralt with finding Ciri, who has recently been seen in several places. Ciri is a Child of the Elder Blood, the daughter of the emperor and the last heir to an ancient elfish bloodline with the power to manipulate space and time. Geralt first hears that Ciri was in Velen at Crow's Perch, the Bloody Baron's fort. The baron refuses to help, but Geralt's acquaintance, the sorceress Keira Metz, tells him that an elfish mage was looking for Ciri. Keira directs Geralt to the Crones of Crookback Bog: malicious, ancient spirits living near Velen. The Crones say that they captured Ciri for the Wild Hunt before she escaped and have enslaved Anna, the baron's missing wife. Geralt returns to the baron, who tells him that Ciri went to Novigrad.

He discovers that the Church of the Eternal Fire, a militant religious organization, is purging mages in Novigrad. Meeting his former lover, Triss Merigold, Geralt learns that Ciri had contacted his friend Dandelion. Geralt navigates Novigrad's criminal underworld to rescue Dandelion, and learns that Ciri teleported to the Skellige archipelago. In Novigrad, Geralt may help Triss to free fugitive mages. He sails to Skellige and rejoins Yennefer, who has been investigating a magical explosion linked to Ciri. They track Ciri to the island of Lofoten, which has been attacked by the Wild Hunt. Geralt and Yennefer realise that Uma, a deformed, cursed creature at Crow's Perch, was present after Ciri's escape. Before leaving Skellige, Geralt can help determine who will rule Skellige after the king's death. Yennefer severs the magical bond between her and Geralt, giving him the option of affirming his love for her or ending their relationship.
