|Chapters II and III|
Saint Lebioda's hospital is one of the most prominent buildings in the Temple Quarter. It is bound to the north by Peddler Street, to the east, by Hospital Street and to the west by Heroes of the Guard Street. The grounds boast a lovely garden tended by the gardener, a former mercenary. It is also Shani's place of work.
- The hospital, named after the prophet Lebioda, was set up in a former temple of Melitele. To this day a triple-bodied statue of the goddess stands inside. Nurses and novices work there, trying to help those struck by the plague. It is not a pleasant place, filled with the moans of the suffering and the stench of their excretions. Those who do not survive the disease, meaning the overwhelming majority, are thrown into a pit behind the hospital. Every once in a while, the bodies are burned to prevent the plague from spreading. Recently the Order of the Flaming Rose placed the hospital under its protection.
- During Chapter II, Geralt can stay here for free and meditate.
- An Order footman/guard will come in around noon to hit on one of the nurses, which is bizarre, considering they both have supposedly taken a vow of celibacy (in the game only! Melitele does not forbid such activities in the books).
- In Chapter II, if you talk to the nurses enough times, you will eventually get into a face to face conversation where one of them will tell you that a lot of people have been poisoned lately with blackened tongues (could be reference to Eco's The Name of the Rose).
- If the guard won't let you in the hospital, he will let you in with a bribe. He may accept a lower amount, but 75 is a safe number.
