At Wastrel Manor, follow the road south until you come across some ruins where two peasants, Dagmar and Preben, are talking. Interact with them and they'll explain that they're making an offering to their deity, the Allgod, who has been responsible for protecting and blessing them - or so they think. One of their forefathers had reportedly been out gathering brushwood when a bush caught fire - a miracle as far as he was concerned - and out of nowhere a voice spoke to him demanding offerings and worship. However, the Allgod has cursed them as their offerings are meager on account of the war going on. Agree to speak on their behalf to start the quest.
Approach the statue and talk to the "deity" who will claim he will bring his wrath down on the village, like avalanches, if they do no bring him better food. Considering the geography though, this is impossible, not to mention the voice came from underground.
Use Witcher Senses and you'll notice a crack in the wall and a bottle nearby that smells of vinegar. Follow the trail to just behind a wall to some rubble that's really an illusion and use the Eye of Nehaleni here to reveal a hidden cellar. Heading downstairs, you find the Allgod: a sylvan who's gotten fat by proclaiming to be a deity so the villagers will feed him. You can choose not to argue and tell the peasants you couldn't get him to back down, kill him, or convince him to accept their offerings. If you let him live, you can then mention the cellar to the peasants or leave it be. Note that you won't get any additional or gold by doing this unless you convinced the Allgod to accept the smaller offerings. The quest will then complete.
Journal Entry Edit
- In the backwoods of Velen Geralt came across an altar, and next to it - two troubled villagers. When asked the source of their worries, the peasants told Geralt the deity they worshipped - the awe-inspiring Allgod - had rejected the offerings they had brought him. The witcher was not a particularly gods-fearing individual, yet nevertheless promised that he'd intercede for the peasants with their deity.
- It turned out the revered Allgod was a run-of-the-mill sylvan, or, as the common folk call these beings, a deovel. The conniving beast had convinced the local peasantry of its divine powers and had grown fat on their offerings for decades.
- If Geralt agrees with the Allgod:
- The witcher's argument that demanding outrageously sumptuous offerings in a time of poverty and famine was immoral and unbecoming of even a false god did not convince the sylvan. Geralt decided he was not going to toss his pearls before this particular swine anymore and bid the Allgod farewell before continuing on his path.
- If Geralt reasons with the Allgod:
- Geralt convinced the sylvan demanding outrageously sumptuous offerings in a time of poverty and famine was immoral and unbecoming, even for a false god. The sylvan seemed skeptical at first, but after eyeing the silver sword on Geralt's back he decided he'd best not argue.
- If Geralt kills the Allgod:
- To Geralt's thinking, while the sylvan had not killed or even injured anyone, it was still a harmful parasite and thus deserved death. The witcher expected the peasants to thank him for freeing them from this horned huckster - but his rational approach to matters of faith met with incomprehension and horror.
- Address the Allgod using the altar.
- Find the Allgod using your Witcher Senses.
- Convince the sylvan to change his ways.
- Kill the sylvan. (only if you choose to kill it)
- Talk to the peasants.
