In Gilded Vale you will find both main and side quests to complete. It is highly recommended that you explore the entire village thoroughly. Take a peek into all the buildings, including the inn and the smithy, among others. Apart from that we can also find the Temple of Eothas which has been presented on a separate map.
Important places in the Gilded Vale
1. Big tree
Main quests: Visions and Whispers - Talk to Urgeat after you get to the Gilded Vale for the first time. The meeting takes place close to a big tree. Return there after you have rested at the inn, and find Caldara de Berranzi.
Eder - He is standing close to the big tree and is a potential party member. You can recruit him only after you have completed the Visions and Whispers main quest (You simply need to talk to Eder).
Kolsc - He accosts you close to the big tree, after you have completed A Mother's Plea side quest. This gives you the opportunity to start another side quest - Lord of a Barren Land (it has been described on the Raedric's Hold page).
2. Black Hound Inn
Aloth - He is standing in front of the inn and he is a potential party member. To recruit him, you first need to solve the problem with the Angry Townsmen. You can either encourage them to leave the spot, without provoking a riot (this requires a high level of Perception, Strength or Intelligence), or attack them (they are not very demanding opponents).
Pasca - She is the owner of the inn. While talking to her, you can rent a room from her (a free-of-charge one or one you pay for that provides a temporary increase in your statistics). Apart from that, you can hire a traveler (a new party member) and trade - Pasca sells camping equipment, potions, food and beverages.
At the upper floor of the tavern, there are two locked containers. The chest in the Southern room requires 2 points of Mechanics and 3 lockpicks, or 3 points of Mechanics. The wardrobe in the northern room requires 1 point of Mechanics and 2 lockpicks or 2 points of Mechanics. There's a dog at the end of the corridor. You can pet it and then talk to the inn's owner about it. Doing this will give you a chance to adopt the dog as a pet.
4. Ingroed's House
Side quest: Vengeance from the Grave- Talk to Ingroed and Nonton, and either let them leave the village or kill them.
Side quest: Against the Grain - See the cutscene in front of the windmill and talk to Trumbel inside the building.
