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.

Beloved Triss!
Your insight made finding Alvin possible. Also, I received the amulet from Dandelion. Don't worry, the boy will be alright, I will take care of him.
[Note: This part of the text depends on Geralt's choice of content.]
I understand that I have to spend some time away from Vizima. Here in Murky Waters the time seems to pass according to its own rhythm. It is a very beautiful place — with grain fields swaying in the wind and a crystal clear lake. The people here are also very pleasant. [or] I hope you were able to somehow overcome the difficult situation that I put you in — I am very sorry. I think you should talk to Foltest and tell him of his sweet daughter's deeds.
[either way]
I think about you as well, Triss, and I keep thinking about the moments when we were together. I don't know if our relationship will overcome all obstacles but I don't think we should worry about that just now. What is important is that we have each other. I hope that I will see you soon.
Geralt

My Friend!
I have found Alvin, thanks in no small part to your insight. Also, I received the amulet from Dandelion. Do not worry, the boy will be all right, I will take care of him.

Your letter made me very happy. Thank you for your kind words. I am truly content that I may call you my friend, it means a lot to me. Take care and keep your chin up!

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.
