|Lady of the Lake|
The Hermit, a druid, lives alone in his hut in the Fields near the village of Murky Waters, feeding his chickens and geese and tending to the barrows of the knights who died in the service of the Lady of the Lake. In fact, he is the only (living) human resident of the fields.
He is a learned man, for he spent most of his life as a diplomat for King Foltest, before he found his calling serving the Lady of the Lake. He is an expert in legends about the Holy Grail. He is also a Professional dice player and does a little trading on the side. He buys and sells:
In the Epilogue, Geralt meets the Hermit one last time at the safe house in the Temple Quarter. It seems that he has decided to go back to his old diplomatic role and would like an audience with the King.
- You may seek out the hermit and speak with him about the Holy Grail as one way to get to the conversation that leads to a Romance Card from the Lady of the Lake.
- He also provides some information on nightwraiths and the Wreath of Immortelles.
- One reward for solving his quest is the witcher's hut. Alas it can not be used for storage or meditation.
