By the events of the Hearts of Stone expansion, King Radovid has disbanded the Order and driven its members into hiding. Having resorted to banditry and drug manufacturing, "fallen" knights from the Order feature across the landscape east of Gustfields.
The Order once again appears. Geralt finds them camped outside of Loc Muinne, maintaining the peace during the negotiations. Having been invited by King Radovid, the Order also takes part in "witch hunt" that ensues.
Importing the Order's Path from the first game
With Siegfried of Denesle as Grand Master, the Order undergoes crucial reforms in their foundations and is now under Redanian protection. Radovid promises the Order land close to Roggeveen, where Siegfried wishes to build a stronghold - "Barienmurg".

The Order's mission is to protect Temerian society in The Witcher. They demand no payment for their services, raising the question of where their funding comes from. In Vizima they have taken over the responsibilities formerly held by the Special Forces. They actively promote the cult of the Eternal Fire.
Grand Master Jacques de Aldersberg is the organisation's founder and leader, a man of whom people know very little prior to his involvement with the Order.

|The Order of the Flaming Rose
"The Order of the Flaming Rose was established after the war with Nilfgaard by a charismatic leader, Jacques de Aldersberg, on the foundations of the deteriorating Order of the White Rose. De Aldersberg's aim was to protect the people from monsters and other evils, and to promote belief in the Eternal Fire. The Order's headquarters are located in Vizima, with numerous commanderies spread across the whole of Temeria.
The book "People of the Shadows" reveals some secrets regarding the genesis of the Order of the Flaming Rose. According to the author, the Order was established with the help of the Redanian intelligence service to counter the sorceresses, who were organizing themselves and growing in power. Furthermore, the author believes that Redanian intentionally refused to grant a charter to the main commandery of the Order, thus preventing a strong organization from planting roots within the country's borders.
According to the author of "The Aftermath of the War", the Order of the Flaming Rose is underestimated and treated too lightly. The Grand Master may be calculating and cunning, but he is above all a fanatic. Furthermore, the author believes that the Order aims to gain as much power over people's souls as possible. To achieve this, the Order wages secret wars with other clandestine organizations, such as the one founded by the sorceresses. The persecution of witches and freaks is but a prelude to the real attack, which will be directed against the sorceresses."
