Journal entry[]

Priests can be very touchy about intruders defiling their temples, a fact to which desecrators of the Lionhead Spider's sanctuaries can attest. Luckily, this time Geralt had a less macabre cult to deal with, and the high priest turned out to be sensitive to changes in the political climate. After a few words, the witcher and the monarch were on their way to the solar, where they hoped to find the children.
However, before our heroes could reach the king's progeny, the dragon swooped down on them once more. The beast attacked with fury and fought relentlessly. Had Geralt been, say, a potter, only charred corpses and possibly some earthenware shards would have remained. But the dragon was up against a witcher, and after a fierce battle it was forced to turn tail. Geralt led Foltest to the solar, to Boussy and Anaïs.
The king found his children, the blood of his blood, only to die at the hands of an assassin disguised as a monk. On a temple floor with his throat slit open — so died Foltest, son of Medell, King of Temeria, Prince of Sodden, Sovereign of Pontar and Mahakam, and Senior Protector of Brugge and Ellander. Geralt failed to stop the murderer, and when soldiers burst into the room, they immediately and mistakenly identified him as the kingslayer. They piled upon the witcher, knocking him down and knocking him out.
