People of the Outskirts

The People of the Outskirts are a community comprised mainly of farmers and their families. The journal entry in the game does not really refer to the residents of the Outskirts, but to one particular resident with whom Geralt has a little tryst. The rest of the information on this page is of a more general nature and does refer to the inhabitants of the Outskirts as a whole.

Notable townsfolk

Other townsfolk

  • Innkeeper Olaf
  • The Stall-keeper, a meat vendor, sells suspicious pork and other products near the bridge to the Maribor Gate.
  • Vesna's Grandma, is always at home, and will make comments based on where you stand in the quest, She's No Early Bird.
  • Townswomen in white dresses, give Geralt tulips, and mention that the "flaming lizard folks" are looking to set an ambush for him in return for a bouquet of flowers (you can buy flowers from Declan Leuvaarden or "Viziman Herbalist").
  • A Peasant woman in a yellow and green dress provides a Romance card in return for tulips. One other thing making her unique is that she usually comments on Geralt's weapons as he runs by: "Quite the dangerous one...". You find her previous "flower lover" — who suddenly disappeared — dead near the southern cave entrance, with tulips on his body.
  • A travelling merchant gives Geralt 100 Items Oren because he cleared the merchant's cellar of garkains in Novigrad a few years earlier. The merchant had not been able to pay at the time, but can now that his luck has changed.
  • An Old Woman who generally stands outside two house near the Fire Shrine just SE of Outskirts area with the chapel will randomly give you knowledge of ingredients (local herbs and tales) for food or 19/20 orens. She can be asked every few hours (sometimes entering one of the nearby homes will cause her to reset as well). The following entries are confirmed though there maybe more.

Journal Entry

The following journal entry is gained by wooing one of the peasant girls with a bouquet of tulips. It and the associated romance card relate to this one experience only. There are, however other sexual encounters to be had in the Outskirts.

"Though the peasants here seem gloomy and unpleasant, the Outskirts nevertheless have their advantages..."

Note: If you turn in both The Salamander's Tail's "Trust gained", as well as Of Monsters and Men's "Alvin's Prophecy" stages prior to giving the Peasant woman the tulips you will loose your chance of receiving her Romance card and with it this Journal entry. Turning in either stage is fine, however due to the nature of both quests it is easy to accidentally turn in both at the same time in the same dialog, locking you out of the option (outside prior saves of course). It is therefore advised to speak to her prior to turning in either stage.

Random Encounters

and monster tales including ghouls, and echinopsae in exchange for food. When they have imparted all there is to know, they will say that they have no more tales. Do not be confused by their "I'm done for this session" quip, which is that "there isn't much more to say".
  • A Beggar (looks like an Old woman) gives Geralt the Eternal Fire signet ring (even if you already have one) in exchange for a White Gull. This is a random conversation so keep trying if you do not get it the first time.
  • Old townswoman: Beauclair wine in exchange for Pork (you can also buy one from her for 50 Items Oren).
  • A Male beggar talks about drowned dead, seemingly more specifically Nadir, but does not name him.
  • Another Male beggar asks for booze.
  • Old townswomen: In exchange for food, tell four tales featuring:
