Gretka’s Story and Sweets Road
Gretka – a minor character that appears on the way Cyrils near the castle Vronitsybelonging to Bloody Baron… At first, an unexpected meeting does not look too strange – events are presented as if Gretka, a girl of 8-10 years old from the village Zalipye, just got lost in the forest and dreams of returning to his family. But in the course of the dialogue, eerie details come to light.
Gretka not lost in the forest thicket, but follows Road of Sweetsthat runs through a gorge with wolves and leads to For witches on the Swamps… The trail near the castle appeared a long time ago – so Witches lure and eat unnecessary children in those families where parents can barely make ends meet. To look at bright and anxious face Gretki, realizing the whole situation – a heavy burden.

On the dock, next to a ship with sorceresses preparing to sail, the Witcher and Merigold are trying to either pave the way to romance and love, or part almost forever (Triss will meet later in Novigrad, but not in the status of a love partner).
The outcome of the story also depends on the decisions chosen in the dialogue (the choice is modest: Geralt there is a chance either to persuade the sorceress to stay, or to let her go with her allies on the ship), and from the actions taken earlier. As an option – Triss you need to kiss at the ball, and at the same time – agree to help in a couple of additional quests …
The tragic story of Cyrilla
Plot The Witcher 3 always forces you to choose what to do next. Often, the outcome of some quests is influenced by subtle little things, such as timely emotional support or advice given. But sometimes history is assembled from important decisions that turn the world around. During the passage, important for Geralt will become a relationship with Cirilla… In the quests “Landscape after the battle“,”Final preparations“And”Preparing for battle“The fate of the relationship between the Witcher and the young Witcher is decided, and, allowing imprudence, the hero’s story instantly turns into horror without a hint of a happy ending.
If you don’t help a couple of times Cirilla, do not show concern and do not support, then it will disappear in the world of the White Cold forever and will never come back. Geralt it will not withstand the loss and, left alone with oppressive thoughts, will die in a fight with monsters climbing into a hut blackened with time and pain. Worst ending The Witcher 3 could not be imagined.
Sheala de Tanserville and the tangled life
Sheala de Tanserville from the famous Lodges of the Sorceresses in The Witcher 3, in comparison with the first part and the sequel, takes almost no screen time. It’s all the fault of the king’s punishment Radovida, who imprisoned the sorceress in the dungeon. But Sheala will meet on the way Witcher – at least within the framework of the quest “Great escape“When Geralt will meet the sorceress with Margarita Lo Antilles…
Sheala wounded, tortured and is almost dying… It is impossible to save the sorceress – she literally fell from the hands of fanatics who tore an already tortured body. To somehow alleviate the fate of the girl, only a quick death is capable of. And though Geralt cold-blooded and almost insensitive, even such a cold heart will be filled with sadness and sympathy.
Keira Metz and related quests
Keira Metz in The Witcher 3 occurs in a couple of minor and main quests and partially influences the narrative with eccentric antics and outrageous behavior. FROM Geralt the sorceress even forges romantic ties, but, as it turns out later, exclusively for their own purposes… Quest “For the good of science” confirms cunning intentions Keira and forces once again to choose the path of development of history.
Options to influence the plot of the universe throws up three: battle with Keiro (in the event that the sorceress does not issue notes), change of location (the girl will go to meet the king Radovid, where he will meet with inevitable death and disappear from sight), an invitation to Caer Morhen… The latter option brings the story closer to a happy ending, but only if the art of diplomacy works. Otherwise, you will have to watch the death Keira and the torment of girlfriends from Of the Arcane Lodge…
Cyril and the death throes
The whole plot is permeated with the search for Cyril The Witcher 3: Geralt diligently searches for a young witcher – communicates with characters around, examines other people’s manuscripts, performs dirty work and even weaves intrigues with the sole purpose of finding at least some traces of the missing child Of the Elder Blood… Long experiments at some point lead to long-awaited results – Ciri located on magical islands Fog…
Arriving at the place, cold-blooded Witcher barely able to hold back emotions – Cyril is dying, raves and exudes filth. And though Geralt will find a way to almost resurrect the child, the memories of the days gone through will be frozen for a long time in the halls of memory and even cause nightmares closer to the end of the story.
The Legend of Lambert
Geralt throughout the entire storyline The Witcher 3 (and some related quests especially) considers Lambert not too smart and positive character. The witcher earned such a negative reputation by eternal attacks on Yennefer, dissatisfaction with life and strange jokes launched at everyone who is nearby. Geralt from Lambert gets even more often – the witchers outside Kaer Morhen got too too different life: someone spends time with sorceresses and protects cities from vampires, and someone is forced to deal with monsters in the swamps, sinking knee-deep in mud.
Behavior a step away from the end credits Lambert will not change (the long-awaited correction of the soul will not happen), but the situation around the ever-dissatisfied witcher will become clearer. He will tell about problems with his father, about a crippled fate (Vesemir did not even ask about the desire to devote his life to witchcraft) and even drunkenness. Taking a look at the origin Lambert, consciousness involuntarily turns upside down, and history begins to be presented in a new light.
Bloody Baron, Anna and the cursed castle
Bloody Baron – a character with a controversial reputation. After completing quests related to the hero, it is difficult to even imagine which category the impressions should be classified into – horrifying (Bloody Baron is cruel and uncompromising, loyal to his own choice and is not going to listen to those who are nearby) or filled humanity, love and fearlessness.
Despite the difficult fate Baron, quest “Family Matters” instantly knocks the ground out from under your feet and makes you review the events before and after from different angles. The quest takes place in the swamps, where Geralt stays in search of his wife Barona, Anna… The situation around is horrible, but even more complicated is the situation directly with Anna: she is under the spell of local witches and close to death… Geralt enough chances to save my wife Baron, but only if the secrets in the missions are correctly solved “Whispering Forest” and “Return to Krivoukhovy swamps”… Are there any mistakes? Anna will burn, and Baron, unable to bear the terrible fate, will hang himself on a tree in the vicinity of his own castle.
Storyline addition “Blood and Wine” to The Witcher 3 hides a treasure trove of non-standard quests and tests that test the combat skills of the pumped Witcherand also, like the original storyline, throws up heartbreaking stories. As conceived by the developers in “Blood and Wine” to Geralt the duchy to defend Toussaint from vampires. The problem is completely solvable, but only if Elder (Hidden, supreme vampire with no name). Contact the Elder The Witcher suggests Oriana, aristocrat and part-time Brooks, which often organizes underground meetings of Mandragora, and at the same time maintains an orphanage.
Oriana’s reputation is controversial, but Geralt agrees to cooperate and follows Brooks to the estate for more details. There, the Witcher will meet another serif left by the writers of The Witcher 3 on the hearts of fans. Oriana will meet her own realm half-plundered and destroyed, and orphans – perishedexcept for one boy. He diligently tells how the vampires examined everything around and how they tore the bodies of innocent children. The story is not for the faint of heart.
Protection Kaer Morhena in The Witcher 3 reminiscent of a Hollywood blockbuster: the walls of an old fortress are falling apart under siege Wild Hunt, sorceresses continuously sow spells and force shields on the battlefield, and Geralt almost continuously moves between enemies, relying on steel and silver swords. Battle at some point turns into a waking nightmare: defenses are falling apart, the sky is dimming, and the life of almost every hero hangs in the balance.
The ending of the battle is tragic: enemies whirlwind along Kaer Morhenu, but Eredin, leader Wild Hunt, enters the battle with Cyril and Vesemir… The battle unfolds with lightning speed – in less than a couple of seconds, the cry of a young witch will pierce the silence around, and Vesemirpierced with a sword will leave only a bloody trail on the ground. Forget death legendary mentor impossible – and perhaps not a more tragic moment in video games.
