Well Hello There Fellow Gamers And Hivers!
Okay I'm back with another episode of The Witcher 3 Saga!
Apologies for slacking on this the last three weeks. 🤣
In the last episode of The Witcher 3 Saga Geralt had some affairs of love to sort out with Yennefer. As much as I would like to say it was a mutual agreement it really wasn't. Yennefer sort of forced Geralt but then again what choice does a man have when it comes to woman!
I can't say much has changed in there undying love situation so the question is, Did the genie bluff or trick them all those years back?
Favours From The Old Folk.
Now back at the feast that would decide who would rule Skellige after the Jarl has died I overheard Crach talking about his son Hjalmar going missing on the isle of Undvik.
Since Crach is a dear friend I have to try and find out if Hjalmar is still alive. That meant sludging through every dock alley and tavern! Every sailor and every Skelliger I can find!
I came down a old man and a young lad, both of whom came from Undvik and both of them were here the day Hjalmar came searching for me to help him slay the giant!
They were usefull enough up until a point, where they started jabbing at each other for why the other didn't go with Hjalmar and what excuses the other has! If they had half the balls they claim they had they'd have gone without hesitation!
There Are Somethings A Man Has To Do Before Dying.
Well since I will be going on a excursion of which no men ever return I thought I might as well get a nice clean shaved beard and a fresh hair cut! Wouldn't want those finding my body not knowing who The White Wolf was when he lays there dead on the ground.
I found the only barber in this cold icey place and convinced him to give me a decent cut, for the right price of course!
There I Was Sailing Through Water I Have Never Chartered Before.
An Unplanned Journey.
The route I had to travel was quite simple, I had to go around the tooth of Skellige and avoid the shallows for as long as I possibly could. Then I only had to navigate my way through the thousand of needles sticking out of the water near Undvik.
Sinking my boat could mean I freeze to death in these waters!
I was dead set on my route until I noticed an abandoned castle Kear Almhult and I just had to go see what is going on there and why it might be abandoned.
The yellow line was my original route and the red line is where I took a detour!
Overgrown forests and broken walls with crumbling towers! That is something that has a Witcher's adventure written all over it! It might be abandoned but there might still be a great deal of treasure left here!
No one ever crosses this seas!
Nothing Is Just Left Abandoned With No Good Reason!
Of-course Geralt should have known this!
It's not that they caught Geralt off guard at all it was more a matter of who the hell would want to live out here in the middle of nowhere with no functioning society!
The pirates of-course!
Once I knew this was a pirate lair I just had to keep pushing them back into the sea! Imagine what treasures lay hidden inside there locked chests!
Within The Castles Yard!
One thing is clear, these pirates have been stationed here for a long time! They really dug into this place and there were almost a hundred of them crawling about!
A hundred of them and all their hounds with them!
The most of the lot were held up inside the castle walls, too scared to go out and help there brethren that was slaughtered. The worst part is that they all stood and watched!
Beneath The Earth!
After clearing out the castle's yard I heard some drunkards yelling at each other.
I knew there that this place had more to it than what actually met the eyes, there was a dungeon, not hidden but tucked away behind the rubble of a tower that fell ages ago.
Of-course I was inclined to go down there, I killed the first group of pirates guarding the entrance. (I wonder if they heard the screams of their dying brothers>)
After that I picked up a note and on this note it referred to someone as "The Ancient One Is Craving Blood" I knew then this was meant for me. Slaying the demons of this world even if I don't get the coin for it.
The Ancient One.
The Ancient one was merely a deranged old man thinking he gains power from human blood.
Perhaps they do, but I'm here to let their life's blood drain out into the sea!
I found the Pirate Leader in the last prison cell busy chopping up and draining the blood out of a poor innocent victim. At-least this would be the last victim of this Pirate King!
Next Destination Undvik!
Once I cleared the island that peered into my interests I got on a boat and sailed straight to Undvik.
Although with so many Sirens surrounding the island and with so many pirates in the area I find it hard to believe that anyone has even made it to Undvik.
I can't say but what I can say is that I want to see one of those Ice Giants!
Remember To Keep On Gaming Like You've Only Got One Life Left!
