How reading the books reshaped my choices in Witcher 3 - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Giant Bomb
During Geralt's travels looking for Ciri, he could encounter Lambert after taking a On the way they encountered several problems, such as trolls and foglets. Lambert later got into a relationship with the sorceress known as Keira Metz. Geralt and Yennefer are practically her parents and Ciri's relationship with Triss . The problem is people who've read the books and play the Witcher games try . Just a quick oneshot of a Geralt and Ciri romance. to choose to ignore their prejudices and make a profit over picking trouble with a witcher. . And as Empress of Nilfgaard, a relationship with a witcher absolutely wouldn't.
Ciri is representing the worst effect of humanity, as all of us tend to abuse or destroy what is precious to us.
Geralt never had a real family. Yennefer grew up with a family that tortured her, which resulted in a tragedy.
She tried to commit suicide and later on murdered her parents. The suicide attempt was unsuccessful and under the lead of Tissaia de Vreis, she was given a shallow mask of arrogance, which helped her fight with her demons, hide her damaged soul and somehow keep moving on. The only thing she eventually proceeds to care about is curing her infertility and having a child.

We all know the rest of the story. They both needed something more Cirilla, their adoptive daughter. While Geralt and Ciri love each other, the daughter will always be closer to her mother. Their relationship is more profound. Yennefer however spent her whole life seeking for love and possibility to have a child.

But does Yennefer and her relationship with Ciri have to be brushed under the carpet? Please read it carefully. You should get the general idea. Kallelinski did a great job collecting all of this. Three posts by swordsandroses. For almost 5 months now i've been delving into Witcher-series.

First i played the Wild Hunt through maybe 5 or 6 times. Then i got the Witchers 1 and 2. Played them through once. Then i read the books. I, uh, found the english version books from the web. Im finnish so english is not my native language, still, i think my english is pretty good. After reading the books i again played first fully through the series once, and then i grind Witcher 2, maybe 5 or so times.
The Wild Hunt i played again through maybe 3 more times again. So i believe i have pretty good understanding of what is happening there behind the scenes. To start unwrapping the little secret between Geralt and Ciri, you need to read the first book. More precisely the story where Geralt attends Princess Pavettas 15th birthday as Ravix of Fourhorn, the Play is the Thing-quest play is loosely based on this event.
During the feast, Pavetta experiences uncontrollable burst of Power. Identical to what Ciri has during the battle of Kaer Morhen. During this burst of Power, druid Mousesack aka Ermion tells Geralt that she cannot control the Power because she is virgin. This interesting piece was, IIRC, mentioned only once during the whole series.
Yen and Ciri relationship in the games. : witcher
Anyway, the birthday party ended well, Mousesack and Geralt managing to subdue the raging princess. Geralt invoked the Law of Suprise and was bound with Ciri there. How Pavetta was pregnant and virgin at the same time?
I believe this was Yennefers doing. During the raid to the Avallac'h lab, Ciri asks Yennefer if she had anything to do with manipulation of the Elder Blood gene. Impression i get from the way Yennefer replies makes me believe that she lied and indeed had something to do with it.
But there was never any evidence though. This background would explain why Emhyr took Yennefer as his court sorceress after the Imperial Secret Police arrested her and Viper school witchers. Rest of the events in the books or Witcher 1 and 2 had no additional clues regarding this subject.
Well, maybe Geralts and Ciris behaviour during the battle of Castle Stygga, the two coming down the stairs slick with blood Interesting events in the Witcher 3: They claim that the spirit trapped inside Whispering Hillock was evil, which was true. The background is explained in ingame book called "She Who Knows" They also said something like this: Also true, they met again and one did die, Imlerith.
The two Crones Ciri beat up lived on similar to the Whispering Hillock spirit. The Crones mention Ciri being a mirage when Geralt chases her.
This refers to the scenes with doppler Dudu and the illusion in Hym's lair.
So, i believe that all the crones said was actually truth. The Crones hit the nerve: Geralt likes shapely, ashen haired maids and is boiling like well fed yeast.
Oneiromancy session Geralt and Ciri are bound, not only by fate, but by "something more". They both believe so, this is what i think.
