Depending on Geralt's choice of guardian for Alvin in Chapter III, he either receives a Letter from Shani or from Triss. He must then reply, but as with many instances in the plot of the game, Geralt has choices in the reply he dictates to Dandelion, and of course, the bard is as faithful as ever to the original text.

Later, there is the matter of getting the missive to its intended recipient. As it happens, the Fisher King also seems to be the local postmaster.

warm version[edit | edit source]

Beloved Shani!
I am happy to say that I found Alvin in a village nearby. The boy is all right, you do not have to worry — I will keep an eye on him.
[Note: This part of the text depends on Geralt's choice of content.]
The village I have come to is nestled by a beautiful lake. The peple have welcomed me warmly, though there is a lot of work for a witcher here. Regardless, I have found a kind of inner peace here which I have not felt for a long time. [or] I know you care little for politics, but I would like you to do something. I want you to warn King Foltest about Adda. The princess is plotting with Salamandra — the king's enemy — which is why I cannot return to Vizima.
[either way]
I miss you dearly, my read-haired sweetheart. I miss your smile, I miss you being close to me. I hope that we well be together again soon and that all will be well.
Geralt

Thank you for your kind letter. I hope that when I return to Vizima we will still be friends — that would mean a lot to me.

Note[edit | edit source]

This letter, and in particular the "cool" version, is a reference to a letter sent by Geralt to Yennefer asking her for help in teaching Ciri in Blood of Elves. Needless to say, Yennefer is less than impressed with his choice of words and her reply while being painfully polite on the surface, is very cutting in its sarcasm.
