While in the small, war-torn village, he dropped into the local inn at the same time as the witchers Geralt and Vesemir and attempted to teach some locals how to play gwent, though both parties got more frustrated than anything else.
If Geralt approaches him: trying to obtain information about Yennefer, Geralt asked Aldert about her, but he believed that she didn't exist. Before the witcher left, he asked whether he wanted a game of gwent.
If Geralt agrees to a game: Geralt played his first ever game of gwent, and if he won, he was rewarded a gwent card and a book.
- Beneath his body you can find his unfinished book and the Zoltan card if you didn't beat or talk to him in White Orchard.
- If you play him at gwent, after the match has finished, he will recommend that if you are in Oxenfurt, play the innkeep Stjepan, which will activate the quest Gwent: Playing Innkeeps.
- Speaking to Aldert is completely optional, as speaking to Gaunter O'Dimm is the only patron required to speak to Geralt to advance the quest.
