The Witcher wiki now has a light themed alternative for the wiki skin. To check it out, go to Special:Preferences, then choose the "Appearance" tab and click on the radio button next to "Hydra".
Valdo Marx is a poet and musician from Cidaris and a rival of Dandelion. He considered the latter "a talentless wastrel who panders to the taste of the masses." Valdo was the object of Dandelion's first wish in the short story when he discovered a d'jinn in a bottle in the short story "The Last Wish".
Since Dandelion is the author of the journal in the second game, the bard takes the opportunity to disparage his rival once again, in the entry for Temeria.
