The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Ode to Gwent

Proposal Number 7 for the Anthem of the Gwent Friendship Society of Beauclair.

Author: Stéphane de Douve, master cooper.

Gwent is like a ruddy wine,
Gwent's a night with a lady fine.
When before you two armies clash,
Your cares melt off in a dash.
Then you wish but to play, play, play,
But her indoors whines: hit the hay, hay, hay!
Such minds are dull as muddy yards,
To think this but a game of cards!

Gwent is my liberty,
Gwent is my fraternity,
Gwent relieves the day's sorrow,
and Gwent is my morrow.

Poker has had it, and dice is a bore,
There's no other game that makes you want more.
There are no better satisfactions,
Greater than Beauclair's Belles' is its list of attractions,
Greater than even the Festival of Drinks,
Or even a tipsy young minx.
They can holler and shout, they can release the guards,
I'm leaving home, I'm off to play cards!

Gwent is my liberty,
Gwent is my fraternity,
Gwent relieves the day's sorrow,
and Gwent is my morrow.

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.
