Contract: Deadly Delights is a contract quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Contract Issued by the Temple Guard of the City of Novigrad
Fellow Followers of the Flame,
In recent days several officers of the Temple Guard have been ravaged to death in a most bestial manner. An investigation has been launched to look into the matter, so the perpetrator shall soon feel the iron grip of justice closing around his throat. Anyone able to help the guardsmen track down and punish this murderer - or murderers, as the case may be - is asked to report to the nearest guardpost at once. A reward is foreseen.
It is likewise hereby announced that any man aiding or abetting these bandits or withholding evidence regarding these crimes shall be punished by torture, imprisonment or even death.
-Sergeant Gilbert Witschke

Walkthrough Edit

When you finish talking to the guard, head over to the docks and talk to the medic. Then head over to the indicated area and use your Witcher Senses to locate hoofprints. Follow them to Crippled Kate's. The door will be locked, but you can circle around the building to enter.

When you get inside, speak to the brothel's madame. It may be helpful to have Delusion on hand to make her give up some information. Using Axii on her leads to her giving you a key, the location of the monster and her reason for having said information in the first place. If you don't use Axii on her head to the back of the brothel and use your Witcher Senses to locate a bottle of perfume.

Track the scent of the perfume to a strange acting man. Then head inside the house. If you don't have the key, you have to enter using the neighboring houses.

You have two options when you confront what's revealed to be a succubus (named Salma): you can fight her, or you can convince her to leave town. Whatever the case, head back to the guard when you're done to get your reward.

Journal entry Edit

If Geralt learns of it by talking to a guardsman:
During a conversation with a certain guardsman, Geralt learned that members of the city watch had been disappearing under murky circumstances. He accepted the task of looking into the matter.
If Geralt learns of it by seeing the notice:
Geralt spied something on the city notice board that intrigued him. It seemed keeping the peace in Novigrad was not the city guard's only problem.
If Geralt learns of it by seeing the clues:
The clues Geralt found led him to a house of ill-repute. As is often the case in such establishments, more than lovemaking was taking place within its walls...
<unsure what circumstances give this entry>:
Geralt's investigation revealed a succubus had been responsible for the city guardsmen's murder. I've dealt with more than one such creature in my life and I must say, if anyone is under the misconception that encounters with these creatures are pleasant - well, I would disabuse him of it myself, but I know that is a task only unfortunate experience can accomplish. Suffice it to say death from a surfeit of pleasure leaves one no less dead.
If Geralt spares the succubus:
After talking to the succubus, Geralt decided to spare its life. When he told me this, I was at first outraged, but then he explained the arguments the succubus had given him and convinced me the guards she had killed had earned their fate.
If Geralt kills the succubus:
Geralt tracked down the succubus. They had a brief conversation, during which the succubus tried to justify herself by providing motives for her murders. Geralt remained unmoved and the succubus met with due punishment for her crimes.
