Kingdom Come Deliverance: Tough Love

Hermann, the executioner of Rattay, is trying to help a widow named Elishka, as you’ll discover if you return to his house (you will have previously been there as part of The Good Thief side quest). The crying woman sits in front of his home, on a bench, while the hangman attempts to console her,
despite having chopped off her husband’s head to begin with. Listen to the conversation and the quest will be automatically added to your journal.

Talk to executioner Hermann / talk to Elishka

You’ll hear the whole sorry tale when you go and speak to Hermann and Elishka. After her convict husband was executed, the hangman saved her from being chased out of town, and put her up in his house. Unfortunately, she’s not particularly happy living there. With no kin of her own, the widow has nowhere to go to – but her departed husband may have some family somewhere, who would be willing to take her in.

Find out more from the bailiff

Elishka knows that he had a family, but as they never came to visit she doesn’t know where they are. She refers you to the bailiff, so when you’ve finished speaking to the unlikely housemates, head to the town hall square in Rattay. During the day, you’ll likely find the bailiff in the tavern.

The bailiff, however, is not terribly inclined to help you, just brushing your inquiries aside. If you persuade him, he’ll pass the buck to the city’s scribe, who resides in his study on the town hall’s top floor.

Walk right through the door next to the bailiff, and go left up the stairs, and there you’ll find the scribe retiring in his bed. Tell him that the bailiff has sent you, before asking about the relatives’ records, and eventually discovering that the widow has married into the Mischek family. As luck would have it, they live next to a fishpond to the east of Rattay.

Visit the family

There will be a new quest marker on the world map leading straight there, and it’s not too far away if you’re up for a leisurely stroll. Talk to the elderly woman on the field, and bring her the news about her daughter-in-law. She’s not interested in taking Elishka in, sadly, but it’s possible to convince her with your persuasive skills or, if they fail, bit of coin.

Return to Elishka and report back with the good, I suppose, news. She agrees to live with the family, but if you think she should stay with Hermann, you can suggest the pair make a go of it instead. If you choose that option, the overjoyed executioner will reward you with a load of Groschen.
