Geralt first meets the alchemists Gaspar and Farid in Flotsam where they request him to test a potion for them. If Geralt agrees, he receives a free Critical Effects mutagen from them. No matter what your choice is, they both walk away after the conversation.
- The witcher ran into Farid once more in unexpected circumstances. The alchemist was part of an expedition that was to scour the caverns beneath Loc Muinne in search of the laboratory of the famous mage Dearhenna.
- The expedition ended tragically for Farid. He died in a trap set by the malicious Dearhenna.
