Journal entry[edit | edit source]

I, the undersigned George of Kagen, a witcher by trade, testify the following.
While travelling through Velen I received a summons to provide professional testimony in the matter of the accused Bartoslav of Luvfield.
This Bartoslav stands accused of causing several shipwrecks near the lighthouse which it is his duty to keep. Ships led astray by errant signals from this lighthouse have repeatedly smashed against rocks near the shore, and the lighthouse keeper is held to be responsible for this state of affairs. during the trial Bartoslav testified that he was diligent in the fulfilment of his duties and that the accidents were caused by nightwraiths deceiving sailors with their false glow.
Having investigated the are, I can testify that I found no trace of nightwraith activity. There are likewise no signs of noonwraiths, mamunes, errnymphs or any other specters in the habit of misleading weary travelers journeying by foot, sea or horse.
I did, however, find the catastrophe's true cause. There were not the faulat of the nightwraiths blamed by the accused, but neither were they fault of the lighthouse keeper himself. The accidents were caused by local hooligans who have taken to lighting fires on the hill at night and then robing [sic] the ships that subsequently wreck upon the shore. I was put on their trail by Bartoslav's son, who showed me the ashes from their misleading fires.
My testimony shows that that lighthouse keeper Bartoslav of Luvfield is not guilty of the crimes of which he is accused and should be set free. I also humbly ask for the bailiff to put the lighthouse keeper and his family under his protection, for in light of the revelations Bartoslav's son led me to discover, there will surely be certain parties with cause for vengeance. I cannot undertake the task of protecting the family myself, for I have accepted a contract to kill a dragon said to be lurking atop the Crookback Hills and so must return there posthaste to kill the beast and complete my task.
