Learn more about “Witcher 2” women

women-playwisegaming.com
The next installment in CD Projekt Red’s Witcher saga is close but still seems oh so far away. The developer has provided a few details surrounding the motivations and desires of the scheming ladies from “The Witcher 2.” Read onward to learn a little more about the women of “The Witcher 2” to tide you over for the next 10 grueling days of waiting for the actual game.

Triss Merigold

Blessed with radiant natural beauty and flowing auburn tresses that make her impossible to forget, Triss Merigold was once considered a modest if promising student of magic. While it’s true that the mightiest sorceresses still surpass her powers, none can deny her their respect, not after she helped defeat the sinister Salamandra and quell the rebellious Order of the Flaming Rose. The wisdom and courage she demonstrated in these and other difficult situations also gained her a position as a trusted advisor to King Foltest of Temeria.

A native of Maribor, she has known Geralt for a number of years; although still relatively young for a sorceress, she is considerably older than she appears – a trait he shares. During this time, she has had occasion to tend to his wounds… and to his other needs. Their relationship has become a shifting mix of friendship and love. What’s beyond any doubt, however is that they are completely loyal to each other and to a few close friends like Zoltan and Dandelion.

Triss is definitely pleased about displaying her charms in Playboy. “Women and girls are constantly trying to attract Geralt’s attention. I’m happy to show them that they’re foolish to think they can succeed.”

Ves

Fair-haired, girlish of face and shapely of body, Ves would stand out anywhere. But she’s even more noticeable since she’s seldom seen outside the company of brawny Temerian special forces soldiers. That’s because she’s a highly valued member of their unit. She may well be the most lethal of all with a crossbow, and is nearly as deadly with her sword and throwing knives. Hundreds of adversaries who underestimated her did not live to regret their rashness.

Ves’ station in life did not come naturally. Born into a humble peasant family, she knew nothing of the military life until chance brought her before her commander, Vernon Roche. Seeing immediately that she was not only intelligent but also unusually determined and naturally patriotic, he chose her for training, a decision he has never had reason to regret. She has always served with distinction, even in situations where she had to rely on her beauty and charm rather than her steel.

However, Ves has no wish to be seen or treated differently from her cohorts because of her gender. “I’m a soldier, not a soft handmaiden or serving wench. When any fool thinks otherwise, I’m always glad to correct his impression with the edge of my blade.”

sheala-playwisegaming.com

Sheala de Tancarville

A mere quick glance is enough to see that Sheala de Tancarville possesses remarkable beauty. But even close examination – if that were somehow possible – would not reveal her true age. Like other highly skilled practitioners of sorcery, she appears far younger than her years, which are said to span at least a century. Since she also carries herself elegantly and dresses in the finest fashions, one might think she’d be surrounded by suitors. However, she cares not for such attention. Unemotional, aloof, even severe of demeanor, she has come to be known as the Koviri Loner.

Although Sheala also has no interest in politics, barons and kings still seek her out – for their own ends, of course. Having dedicated her life to study, her command of the elements and knowledge of alchemy may be unsurpassed. Her abilities are well known among sorceresses across the Northern Kingdoms and beyond; they respect and even fear her. So it is curious indeed that she has made her way to the unremarkable village of Port Flotsam.

“Do not annoy me with your questions. What brings me here is no one’s business but my own.” Be this true or not, can anyone as powerful as Sheala avoid being swept into the swirling currents of the day?

saskia-playwisegaming.com

Saskia

Saskia is a natural leader. Born the daughter of a poor knight, she was given over at a young age into the care of a humble but principled peasant family, and thus remembers little of him. Still, he may have left her an inheritance of incomparable value, her commanding charisma. She also grew into the kind of beauty men will follow into battle without hesitation no matter the odds – smooth-skinned with shining hair, dark brows, a compelling gaze, shapely lips and full breasts that perfectly complement her gently rounded hips and shapely legs.

When civil war swept her homeland, Saskia led a peasant revolt, attracting many followers to her cause, even non-humans. Clad in full armor, she demonstrated exceptional skill, both with sword and shield and as a decisive commander, leading her forces to victory over nobles and their trained armies. As her triumphs mounted, so did her legend grow. Now, one tale says she is invulnerable to fire, another that she has slain a dragon – a feat unheard of for anyone except a witcher.

Saskia is humble about such stories, saying very little. “They just grow in the re-telling. I’m nothing more than what you see, a soldier.”

filippa-playwisegaming.com

Filippa Eilhart

As proud and independent as she is pleasing to the eye, Filippa Eilhart is renowned as one of the most talented sorceresses in the Northern Kingdoms. Few if any approach her understanding of polymorphy, perhaps the most challenging of the arcane arts. Among her rare skills, she can transform into an owl, thus gaining the ability to fly. Like her sisters, she does not show her age, which probably exceeds 100 years.

Filippa’s talents brought her to the court of Redania, Temeria`s main rival. Fulfilling her strong ambition and interest in politics, she rose to a position of influence, becoming the lover of Sigismund, the chief of intelligence, as well as an advisor and perhaps more to its ruler, King Vizimir. Following his mysterious death, she gained a seat on the ruling council of regents. Not as detached as Sheala, neither is she friendly by nature or even particularly agreeable, except perhaps when it will serve her purpose.

“Men, even kings, are so easily swayed by beauty. And women aren`t always immune to each other`s charms either.” Will Filippa continue to shape the destiny of the Northern Kingdoms or fall victim to her own supreme self-confidence?

    The Japanese Banana diet works well, but honestly it is
    not what helped me lose over 60 pounds safely in just a few months.

    When following a banana diet, you should limit your
    meals to lunch, dinner and a mid-afternoon snack.
    Most healthy programs you can find online or through your local health
    stores are boring and lack the magic to keep you motivated all throughout, thus you do not end up achieving your goal.

    The claim is that saturated fats promote heart disease, right.
    It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that support the loss
    of extra weight. The reason is it’s been established across the industry.

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints
    for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost onn everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wodpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Cheers!

    I have been surfing on-line more than three
    hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating article
    like yours. It’s beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers
    made good content as you probably did, the web will probably be much
    more useful than ever before.

    He accepted the thoughtful gift with no complaints, popped opened
    the can, and ate whole heartedly. Some guys wear tight
    pants; some guys wear baggy pants – no question which we
    ladies prefer. It’s very hard for Drew and I to
    go anywhere in public together because, instantly, people
    recognize us.

    You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the article you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
    At all times go after your heart.

    Our LMS system does not only give support for students to export reports into
    Excel, but also offer a graphical representation of the data
    for ease of their understanding. As the Peppa Pig series are created for preschool children, English language is
    very clear throughout the program. Devices ranging from
    Dell XPS 13 to the Dell Venue 8 Pro, it encompasses all others which will become a
    part of the Dell family this year.
