Brave Fools Die Young is a secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


This quest is started by speaking to Petter and Ulf at the Grymmdjarr Monument, on the road running between Fayrlund and Fyresdal on Ard Skellig. Petter is badly injured, having fallen from a great height off a stone statue while trying to light a fire atop its shoulders. Though succeeding, the ferocity of the fire caused him to fall and break his leg. Geralt can offer Petter some celandine to help dull the pain or simply leave them be.

Unlike other quests, this quests doesn't have a "fail" status if you leave them, it simply never appears in one's journal.

Journal Entry

Age-old customs can be as dangerous as they are beautiful - a lesson learned the hard way by two young fishermen Geralt encountered on Ard Skellig. As youth of their line had done for ages, the men set out to light a fire on the shoulder of a certain gigantic statue. Sadly, one of them slipped on the plinth, fell and broke his leg. Geralt decided to help the injured man.
Ah, if only human bodies could tolerate witcher potions! Sadly, Geralt could not administer such a toxic brew to the fisherman in good conscience, so the injured young man had to be content with some celandine. Not much, not much at all, but still, something.
