Journal entry[edit | edit source]

[Letter appears to have been read hundreds of times – some words have worn away]
My Dearest Noel,
I know you don’t support my decision. Understand it was not easy for me, but I have decided – I will lead the expedition to the Termes Ruins. The information I might acquire there will mark a new height in my career...
[illegible fragment]
I do not know what arguments I would have to use for you to understand I do not seek to rival you. I understand this is a matter of ambition to you, but our scholarly work should not affect things between us. I believe once you have pieced it all together in your head, you will join us as my assistant and together we shall discover…
[illegible fragment]
Yours Forever
Isabelle

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

Dear Sir Roderick de Wett,
Please forgive me for my tardy response – I was waiting for Golan Vivaldi to confirm sufficient funds were available to redeem the bill of exchange you provided. Not that I don't trust you, but the gods help those who help themselves, as the Kaedweni saying goes.
Getting straight to your question: Princess Adda's curse could indeed be caused to return. The witcher from Rivia had only a rudimentary knowledge of magic arcana, and so was not able to fully remove the spell, and instead only temporarily disrupted its workings.
For Adda to become a striga once more, one would have to sprinkle her food with three drops of blood from her father, King Foltest, three drops of blood from a wolf and three drops of bile from a freshly-buried woman, one who died having finished one hundred years but not yet having started her hundred and first. Then one must cast the Incepted Triangle over the meal thus prepared. That should do the trick – yet please consider carefully whether you truly wish to carry out such an ignoble deed.
Hoping to do business again with you in the future,
-Alyssandra Deviel

Note[edit | edit source]

According to quest designers, the skeleton in the chamber belongs to the messenger who delivered the letter to de Wett, who got rid of the witness, but didn't have time to finish it, before meeting his own end at the witcher's hands.[1]

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

All those chosen by the Professor should be present outside the keep at the designated time. Tardiness, failure to bring the proper equipment or insubordination will be punished with death.
We shall mount our principle attack on Kaer Morhen with our frightener. Gaining mastery of the keep should not present much of a problem, for we have heard only a handful of witchers remain in residence there. Therefore you must make haste: a 50 orens reward awaits you for every mutant head you sever.
Once we have taken the witchers' secrets, we must separate, in order not to attract attention. Every one of you will then be left to find your own way back to Vizima, where we will reunite.
-Azar Javed

Note[edit | edit source]

This letter is a description of the attack on Kaer Morhen in the first game of this series.
