- Scroll 1: Gudrun had once been a terror of the Great Sea. At the mere sight of her dreaded longship, the Flyndr, merchant vessels would hoist their white flags of surrender without a moment's delay.
- Scroll 2: That is, until the day the cutthroat Skelliger decided to offload her bounty in Novigrad... Then resolved to settle there forever.
- Scroll 3: For you see, the Free City of Novigrad is laden with great riches. Why prowl the vast seas in search of unknown treasures when much more had been so conveniently concentrated already in one place?
- Scroll 4: The Flyndr remains to this day moored in Novigrad's port, its deck floating scarcely above the waves. Has it fallen into disrepair or taken on water, you ask? No, no... The truth is simply that precious metals in immense quantities can prove rather heavy.
- Chest 1: The pirates under Gudrun's command learned quickly that the hooks they'd long used for boarding ships would perform equally well on the multistory buildings of Novigrad. Nowadays, whenever prudent Novigradians hear something clank and scrape across their roofs, they quickly gather their most valuable possessions and hurry to lock themselves in the cellar.

Gudrun has always relished opportunities to personally educate folk on the consequences of their ignorance.

- It is unclear what happened to Gudrun and her gang after 1272, when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes place. Harborside district and the Docks, once the Tidecloaks' territory, belongs to Cleaver and his Crownsplitters in the game.
- A woman named Gudrun is mentioned in Sigismund's Bathhouse, but it's unclear whether the character in Gwent has been based on her or is another person.
- Another Gudrun appears in The Tower of the Swallow as one of the fisherwomen who captured Yennefer in the sea and brought her to Crach an Craite.
