Feet as Cold as Ice is a secondary quest in the Blood and Wine expansion.

Journal entry Edit

Few know just how nosy Geralt actually is. He rarely takes the path more frequently traveled, choosing instead to scale mountains, forge through dense brush and traverse many a wilderness. During one such foray through the largely unknown, he happened on a cave at the entrance of which lay numerous corpses. Before the witcher could begin to penetrate it, however, he was stopped by a young knight named François, who had vowed before his betrothed that he would kill the monster that dwelled within the cave.
If Geralt lets François run ahead and die:
Alas, young François stood no chance against Grottore. He perished, pounded to a pulp by the terrible beast. Geralt could do nothing to bring François back from the dead, but he could avenge the young knight and at once rid the land of a dangerous beast. Thus he drew his silver sword, sent it into a whirl, and soon after Grottore's ample dome dangled from the trophy hook affixed to the witcher's saddle.
If Geralt protects François:
With Geralt's aid, the young François managed to defeat the fierce Grottore and thus fulfill the vow he had made.
Geralt gives the trophy to François:
Yet he showed an immense desire to postpone another vow – that customarily made in a chapel with one's previously betrothed at one's side. But the witcher reasoned with the knight, and François returned to his heart's captor to begin preparing for the day they would wed.
Geralt keeps the trophy:
Yet he proved unwilling to make another vow, the kind one customarily makes in a chapel with one's beloved at one's side. Instead of returning to his heart's captor he decided instead to set out in search of another monster he could face and conquer...
