Journal entry[]

Vernon Roche fell into dour spirits after Geralt's conversation with Radovid at the chess club. He didn't want to say right then what had blackened his mood. Instead, he asked the witcher to come talk to him at his hideout near Oxenfurt.
Those under Roche's command rarely defied orders. When they did, the task of disciplining them fell to Roche's second-in-command, Ves. No one who endured a reprimand from this tight-lipped yet strong-armed soldier would ever think of insubordination again.
Yet this time Ves strayed from her usual loyalty and ignored Roche's orders by leaving her post without permission. Faced with an unusual dilemma, Vernon decided to turn to the witcher for help.
If Geralt and Roche save Ves:
The peasants of Mulbrydale had helped Roche's guerillas in the past, so Ves decided to stand in their defense now, in their hour of need, though she knew this was a hopeless and nearly suicidal mission. Had not Geralt and Roche come to the rescue in the last minute, Ves would surely have died a premature death after being cut down by Nilfgaardians, Yet as it were, the imperial troops were defeated –
If Geralt agrees with Roche:
but their leader escaped with his life thanks to Roche's intervention and Geralt's support.
If Geralt agrees with Ves:
and their leader was killed on the witcher's request.
If Ves is killed (Failed Quest):
Yet Roche and Geralt did not come to the rescue in time. Ves fought to save the peasant of Mulbrydale - though she knew full well she stood no chance of winning against her substantially more numerous opponents. No historian will write of this struggle, nor will any bard sing of it, and no gravestone shall mark Ves' resting place.
