Olgierd is a sorcerer as he can summon demons, no ? --— Gwynbleidds (talk) 13:18, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

When does he summon demons? — Game widow ( talk ) 14:25, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Dunno a accurate time, but he sommon not demon but three (cat, dog a caretaker) --— Juraj103 (talk) 14:40, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
There is also Man of Glass. --— Gwynbleidds (talk) 14:46, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
According to the Season of Storms, the practice of summoning demons is called "goetia" and is not considered as branch of magic. Polish term for individual making goetia is "goeta", but I am not sure how properly translate this term. — SMiki5five (talk) 20:30, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes but how would you call goeatia practiciser ? Goetic, Demonsummoner ? A ... got it necromancer --— Juraj103 (talk) 20:33, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Necromancer is the one who practise necromancy, not goetia. — SMiki5five (talk) 20:55, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Goetic than ? --— Juraj103 (talk) 20:59, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
It sounds rather like an adjective :/ — SMiki5five (talk) 21:05, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Goeter or just goet could be more fitting --— Juraj103 (talk) 21:20, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
In French, the practice of summoning demons is called "Goétie" and the term for individual making goétie is "goète". But in novels, all the members of the castle of Rissberg are considered as mages. --— Gwynbleidds (talk) 22:58, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
For the time being, I've only been able to find the phrase "Goetic practitioner", so until we have an official translation, I'd use that. As for the mages at Rissberg, being a mage does not preclude one from also being a Goetic practitioner, but being a Goetic practitioner does not automatically make one a mage — Game widow ( talk ) 10:00, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
You are right Game widow but its magical ability in fight prove that it is an accomplished mage, no ?--— Gwynbleidds (talk) 12:33, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Notes[edit source]

Olgierd's appearance is strikingly similar to ex-footballer David Beckham.

Unless there was some stated intent on the part of the game artists that David Beckham was used as a model, this is nothing more than conjecture and/or coincidence — Game widow ( talk ) 15:27, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
