The stories you uncover during The Witcher III’s quests can often feel timeless, a quality that comes with their fairytale-like nature. It feels like there’s a moral living at the heart of every one. There’s the woman who covets her sister’s lycanthrope husband, only to accidentally subject her to death at his hands. There’s a haunted castle where rats have devoured the court of a lord who lived in plenty while the villagers outside faced famine and plague. There’s the man who’s been left bound by the refugees he was travelling with and is about to be attacked by drowners; save him and he seeks out and murders the refugees in revenge, taking their money in order to reward you for your deed. Decidedly colourful, they each explore repercussions to human foibles.
