Geralt can find John Verdun on his path somewhere alongside the road surrounded by drowners, handcuffed and left to die. The man is desperate and calls out for help. Geralt can listen to John Verdun's story and release him (for which the witcher receives 50 XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level), or leave him. He'll tell Geralt that he belonged to the 10th Maribor Division which was attacked by the Nilfgaardian Army, and he survived the destruction of his unit by deserting and running away to the forest. He then met and traveled with a group of refugees and according to him, once they learned he deserted the Temerian Army, they beat him up and tied him down "like a turkey", leaving him to die there.

If Geralt releases John, he'll meet him later again with a group of bandits, who have just killed some refugees for their belongings. John won't attack, but warn the Witcher to stay out of this. He'll "thank" Geralt by giving him some gold (the player earns 50 crown(s) and 50 XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level after accepting the gold). It's up to the player to finish John and his gang or to walk away. Though Geralt can't attack John and his men if he takes the coin. He can't swing a sword against them, can't use spells on them (except Axii) and even can't shoot them from a crossbow which is rather unusual.
