Story[ edit ] The player controls Geralt of Riviawho is one of the few remaining witchers — enhanced and trained humans with special powers who hunt monsters for a living. Assassins of Kings contains many different paths and storylines, along with multiple endings. Prologue At the start of the game, Geralt is in prison under suspicion of assassinating Foltest, the king of Temeria. The head of the Temerian special forces, Vernon Roche, interrogates Geralt and learns the story that led from Geralt being Foltest's right-hand man to a prisoner.
Prior to and during the events of The Witcher, Foltest had a secret relationship with a baroness named Maria Louisa La Valette, which led to two children, Anais and Boussy.
Some time after Geralt saved Foltest from a witcher assassin at the end of The WitcherFoltest attempted to claim his children and bring them to live with him in Vizima. Maria was not willing to give up the children, and Foltest waged a war to claim them.
Geralt succeeded in escorting Foltest to his children, but an unknown assailant kills Foltest before disappearing, leaving Geralt the only suspect. After the interrogation, Roche decides that Geralt is innocent and aids him in escaping the prison. The two, along with sorceress Triss Merigold, go in search of the kingslayer.
Why did Triss & Geralt break up between witcher 2 and 3?
Chapter 1 The trio arrive in the trading town of Flotsam and are ambushed by Iorveth, a rebel elf. It appears to the group that a witcher, believed to have assassinated King Demavend of the neighboring country of Aedirn, is in league with the rebels. Geralt saves his old friends, the bard Dandelion and the dwarf Zoltan Chivay, from being hanged in the city square.
Geralt discovers that Loredo, the ostensibly Temerian commander of the town, is intending to sell the town to the Kaedwenian king Henselt. He also discovers that the kingslayer, a witcher known as Letho, intends to betray Iorveth and convinces the elf of the truth.
As Geralt and Iorveth confront Letho, Roche arrives with an armed force. The player chooses between assisting Iorveth or Roche, thus setting the path of the second chapter.
Regardless of the choice, Letho kidnaps Triss and forces her to teleport both of them to Aedirn. There, they become embroiled in a rebellion against King Henselt of neighboring Kaedwen, and they assist the rebel forces. Geralt completes three missions: Geralt discovers Saskia is actually a dragon taking human form but she is under mind control by her advisor, the sorceress Philippa Eilhart. Geralt and Roche sail to upper Aedirn. There, they also become embroiled in the rebellion against King Henselt, but assist the king instead of fighting against him.
Geralt discovers an insurgency in the Kaedweni army: Roche is revealed to be plotting against Kaedwen, and Henselt executes most of Roche's men in retaliation. As Henselt assaults Vergen, Geralt defeats Henselt's personal guard, and either allows Roche to murder Henselt in revenge which causes a civil war in Kaedwen or convinces him to spare the king.
Chapter 3 Geralt arrives at Loc Muinne, with either Iorveth or Roche depending on whom he assisted previously. The mages have called a meeting to establish a new magical ruling body known as the Conclave, and all royal leaders are at Loc Muinne. If Geralt arrives with Iorveth, he must choose between rescuing Triss or rescuing Philippa, who is the only person capable of lifting the spell from Saskia but who was captured and blinded by the king of Redania. At the beginning of the Witcher 3, she and Geralt are separated, as Geralt is riding across the Northern Kingdoms in search of Yennefer.
Yennefer makes her first game appearance in flashbacks in The Witcher 2, as Geralt regains his memory. Yennefer dies trying to heal Geralt after he defends a group of nonhumans from an angry mob.
Both are brought to live by Ciri, who Yennefer helped train in magic. Yennefer is later taken by the Wild Hunt and rescued by Geralt; when she returns to the earthly plain she has amnesia, and makes her way across the wartorn Northern Kingdoms in search of Ciri.

Ciri Ciri is a source, someone born with innate and likely enormous magical powers. She makes her first appearance in The Witcher 3, so all of her backstory comes from the Andrzej Sapkowski novels.
She is the daughter of Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard. As a child, after both her parents are believed to be dead, Geralt takes Ciri to Kaer Morhen to train as a witcher.
She later brings Geralt and Yennefer back to life using her magical powers, before teleporting herself out of the world of The Witcher into another realm.
At the beginning of The Witcher 3, she has apparently returned and is somewhere in the Northern Kingdoms, pursued by the Wild Hunt for her powers as a source. He is in search of his daughter Ciri.
Prior to becoming emperor, Emhyr var Emreis was cursed and turned into a monster. His father, the emperor, was killed, and Emhyr var Emreis traveled for a time under an assumed name, fathering Ciri, before eventually freeing himself from the curse and returning to Nilfgaard to take the throne. Letho reveals to Geralt that he assassinated the rulers of the Northern Kingdoms while working for Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard, as a prelude to a Nilfgaard invasion of the north.
At the end of The Witcher 2, Geralt can choose to kill Letho or let him go free. His stories are often used as narration in the Witcher games. He was at the battle where Geralt was slain, and appears in both Witcher games as an ally to Geralt and oppressed non-humans. What is the Wild Hunt? Like the horsemen of the apocalypse, the Wild Hunt are a group of spectral riders who appear as an omen of war.
They kill and take some mortals to become new wraith riders. The Wild Hunt is in search of Ciri, who has escaped their clutches before. As Geralt says, all witchers know that wraiths cannot be killed, only driven away, but it seems that at times they take physical form, as Geralt, Letho, and other witchers killed some of the riders before Geralt agreed to ride with them.
