The Royal Huntsman can be found throughout The Witcher. In particular, Geralt first meets him in the Outskirts, again in the Trade Quarter, and finally in a cave in the swamp cemetery. He's the primary source of information on hunts for exceptional monsters, paying a bounty for each trophy brought to him as proof of success.
After the player turns in all 10 trophies they can talk to the Royal Huntsman again; he offers a choice between a steel sword and a silver sword. The steel sword is the Mahakaman Rune Sihil, and the silver sword is Moonblade.
