Important: The following guide is intended for mature audiences only, due to its content.
Preparation of this guide cost us a lot of work. Thus we'd like to confirm the fact that both witcher's swords are for monsters - with the steel one being intended for those in human flesh. For example the ones that like to point out a strategy guide's flaws and state that it sucks as a result of some minor omissions. Now that we have that clear, please enjoy the adventures of Geralt of Rivia.

The Witcher represents the pinnacle of storytelling in role-playing games, shattering the line between good and evil with a world where moral ambiguity reigns. In a beautiful, rich game universe created by artists first, technology second, the player becomes his own hero in an epic, action-packed narrative uniquely defined by his actions. Returning to the roots of the role-playing genre with a fresh and modern approach, The Witcher emphasizes story and character development in a vibrant world, while incorporating tactically-deep real-time combat like no game before it.
Immersed in a vivid but harsh fantasy world, the player assumes the role of a white-haired witcher named Geralt, a renowned monster-slayer-for-hire and master swordsman with superhuman strength and reflexes. While trying to regain his lost memory, Geralt unwillingly becomes involved in a world-shaking power struggle. Created to provide entertainment for both fans of role-playing games and those seeking fast-paced action, The Witcher brings together epic storytelling and dynamic, visually stunning, and tactically deep action.

More About The Witcher
Older games are a lot of fun, but returning to them can be as rewarding as it can be disappointing. Fortunately, fans of these games, who have the know-how often bring them up to modern standards. Here's a list of the best mods to all-time classics.
Andrzej Sapkowski likes to splash. He comes across as a self-righteous, arrogant megalomaniac – but is it right? Maybe he's actually a misunderstood bard? Or maybe both conclusions are true? Or none?
In two months' time, an independent, full-length fantasy film will debut online. Big deal? Indeed, because it will be based on Sapkowski's prose. We met the creators and talked about this extraordinary production, created not with money, but passion.
The saving system in Kingdom Come: Deliverance has recently caused much fuss. Some called it a redundant and artificial hindrance; others thought it a splendid way to spice things up. Where’s the truth, if there's any? Mine is certainly not in the middle.
The universe of The Witcher may seem like your regular, almost generic, fantasy world – give it a second thought, though, and you’ll find this world to be quite unique. But how was this achieved?
