Triggering the quest
You have to reach a certain point in the main story to be able to trigger this quest. You also might need to complete a side quest linked to the hangman - Tough Love. Henry also has to learn to read (the Mightier than the Sword side quest in Uzhitz). This time, Hermann is dissapoined because he wasn't hired to perform the upcoming executions. Henry can help Hermann sabotage the executions in order to humiliate the hangman from Kuttenberg.
Attention - You have about a week to complete this quest. If it takes longer than that, the executions will be performed according to the plan.
Meet Bailiff and read the Black Chronicle
Find the Bailiff - depending on the time of the day, you might either see him walking around the town or staying in the Rathaus. Ask all the possible questions about the three convicts. Then read the Black Chronicle in order to find out suitable ways of killing them. The Chronicle can be found on the 1st floor of the Rathaus (see above). If the room is closed, us lockpicks, as the scribe for help or just steal from him the Scribe Friedrich's study key.
Go back to Hermann and share your information. It's important to choose the right punishment:
- Peter of Dauba - Decapitation - second dialogue option.
- Georg Weiss - Death by hanging - the first dialogue option.
- Frost Heralt - tortures - the fifth dialogue option.
Talk with Hermann about the details of the plan and take from him the Executioner's rope - rotten.
Sabotage 1/3 - Poisoning the torture devices
You will need Poison. If you've already finished the Baptism of Fire than you can just go back to Pribyslawitz and find the poison in the abandoned Cuman camp - it's in one of the chests. Otherwise, go to the herbalist living in the forest north of Ledetchko (screen above). She can sell you a bottle of poison for about (60 groschen) along with a recipe (which you don't need).
Take the poison east of Rattay, where the Kuttenberg hangman is staying for now. Sneak up there at night and mind the dog (you can kill it) and the hangman's assistants (choke them out or kill them - the hangman himself cannot die!). Reach the wagon shown above and use the poison on the torture device inside the chest.
Sabotage 2/3 - swap the ropes
Go east of Rattay, where the Kuttenberg hangman is staying for now. Sneak up there at night and mind the dog (you can kill it) and the hangman's assistants (choke them out or kill them - the hangman cannot die!). Check out the small building there. Enter the shed, use the ladder and find the rope pictured above. Interact with it to swap it of the rope you got from Hermann.
Sabotage 3/3 - Damaging Hangman's sword
Go east of Rattay, where the Kuttenberg hangman is staying for now. Sneak up there at night and mind the dog (you can kill it) and the hangman's assistants (choke them out or kill them - the hangman himself cannot die!). Find the swprd om the chest to the right from the barn's entrance. You can open it with Key to Heinz's chest which can be stolen from the Kuttenberg hangman, or you can use lockpicks - the lock is easy, the possibility of attracting attention with noise is the real problem. Find the Executioner's Sword (screen above) and take it.
Go back towards the blacksmith's place in Rattay. Note that Henry can be hailed on the way to the town by a guard. You cannot let them search you - use a unique dialogue option or bribe the good man.
Reach the grindstone. Begin the mini game and press the sword down all the way, so that black smoke appears, signalizing damaging of the weapon. You have to bring the sword's durability down to 0 (refer to the screen). Go back to return the sword. Place it back in the chest.
Return of Hermann - end of the quest
Meet Hermann to inform him of the finished tasks. The executions will take place the next day around 14:00 on the hill near Hermann's house. Reach that place and speed up time. A cut-scene depicting a series of failed executions will commence. Talk to the elated Hermann after that. If you've done everything the right way, you'll get the achievement.
