Kalkstein's notes make up a single quest item which helps Geralt locate the sephirot required to open the mysterious Mage's tower in the Swamp.
- Kalkstein's notes
- In his sharply inclined hand, Kalkstein scrawled some notes about where to look for the Sephirot.
- "Here's what I've read from Kalkstein's notes:
- Compassion — Tipperath: Declan Leuvaarden. Fortunately Kalkstein spelled this one out for me. I never would've drawn the link between Leuvaarden and compassion.
- Mercy — Kezath: Vaska, leader of the brickmakers in the swamp. Now, how does mercy figure into our relationship?
- Kingdom — Maal'kad: The sewers beneath Vizima. One of my favorite places. Kalkstein must have had a gnome for an ancestor if he managed to associate sewers with some bit from a book.
- Understanding, Power, Glory — Veen'ah, Ghe'vrath, 'Oth: The statues of Melitele, one in the swamp, the other in Saint Lebioda's Hospital. I have no idea what prayer without faith can possibly mean, but it's worth a try.
- Foundation — Y'esath: The cave in the swamp. More evidence to show that Kalkstein's ancestors were gnomes. A cave in the swamp and the concept of a foundation — I can't make anything of it. We'll see.
- Victory — Neh'tza: The Tower Sentry, right, that wasn't hard... Except that I need to defeat him...
- Crown — Keth'aar: Destiny. Here Kalkstein outdid himself. His notes indicate I'll find the last sephirah by chance, for instance, while sitting in the privy or in the roast chicken I order at The Hairy Bear. An unknown. Destiny will throw it in my hands. Next time I see Kalkstein, I'll ask him if he hides his gnomish roots on purpose, fearing racist persecution..."
- Tipperath — Declan Leuvaarden will part with it for 500 .
- Kezath — Vaska gives this as a reward for the Clay Pits quest.
- Maal'kad — Found on the carcass of the cockatrice during the Prison Break quest.
- Veen'ah, Ghe'vrath, 'Oth — Sacrificing a single food item at the statue of Melitele in St. Lebioda's Hospital or in the swamp grants all three of these at once.
- Y'esath — Within a sarcophagus in the cave in the swamp.
- Neh'tza — In the remains of the golem.
- Keth'aar — Raymond Maarloeve
- Chocc'mah — Is given to Geralt by Kalkstein.
