This quest begins either when Geralt comes upon a rock troll guarding a destroyed Redanian camp, or after reading the notice on the board in Oxenfurt. The troll wants Geralt to paint the Redanian emblem on his "shield".

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

While meandering through the sunny but war-damaged lands near Oxenfurt, Geralt's sensitive ears picked up a very strange sound – something between off-key singing and the bellowing of a stuck pig. Geralt would be a poor excuse for a witcher if he did not investigate such a matter.
It turned out the dubious musical talents belonged to a troll who believed himself part of the Redanian army. His fondest dream was for [the] fort he had been assigned guard to look like a proper Redanian fort. Bear in mind that a troll's mental capacity is rought that of a none-too-bright toddler, and you'll understand why this particular one felt a Redanian fort should be painted in bright Redanian colors. Geralt brought him red and white paint, which made him as happy as a child finding a present under his pillow.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • Deliver paint to the troll
The troll will then proclaim he does not know how to paint and ask Geralt to do it.
If Geralt paints the emblem the troll will praise his work although it looks like a child painted it
If Geralt tells the troll to paint it, it will look perfect but the troll will be disappointed in it.
Regardless of who paints it, you'll receive 50XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level, the Gven'nel and Axeman's gauntlets diagrams, and a number of hides.
  • Look around the area
