Detailed Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • You can convince Dellar to pay the ransom of 1000 imperials Persuasion:[3], earn [+1 Peacemaker reputation];
  • You can convince Dellar to pay the ransom of 500 imperials Persuasion+ Trading = [5], if you barter with the raiders for the lower ransom first Trading:[4] and earn [+1 Peacemaker reputation];
  • Pay Cado 700 imperials to deal with the raiders, thus killing them and saving the hostage Thief background;
  • Visit the camp and give Dellar detailed information, thus granting the rescue success Perception:[7];
  • Let Dellar attempt the rescue without providing any useful information, thus resulting in the death of the hostage and many soldiers;
  • Ask the leader of the bandits to hand the prisoner over Charisma:[8];


Some things worthy of mention - If you fail in your attempt to kill the leader with a dagger, the raiders will knock you down and kick you. By avoiding the blows your dodge will increase by 5 points, but your Max HP is lowered by 2 points.

- If the hostage is saved by any of the combinations above, you receive [+2 House Daratan reputation], the exception being (1), in which case you earn [+3 House Daratan reputation]. [1]

- To get the 'Manipulator' trait you must not take any hostile action at the mine yourself- killing the guards in front removes the necessary dialogue options from Dellar and Esbenus.
