Kingdom Come Deliverance: A Costly Brawl
Follow the directions for the start of the side quest A Friend in Need… to find your old friends Fritz and Matthew in a tavern in the northern part of Sasau. During a conversation with Fritz, you’ll learn that the pair have outstanding debts with the monastery. Fritz isn’t too eager to open up about it, and indeed if you push the matter he will lose control and start a fist-fight. It’s only a small brawl between friends however, which is why it calms down relatively quickly.
Figure out why Matthew and Fritz owe the monastery money
The situation is a bit strange, as it turns out. The two are to pay for the treatment costs of a person they have beaten up. We’ll learn more when we head to the monastery in the far north of the city.
Enter the compound near the main building and you’ll see a hospital ward full of injured people. Here you can pick up another side quest, In God’s Hands; you can also talk to Brother Elias, with whom your friends fought.
Convince Brother Elias to forgive the boys’ debt
Elias isn’t eager to let your friends get away with their behaviour, but of course you can convince him to let them off the hook. Either pay the man, or use your powers of persuasion (better than 6/5/4), and he will relent and offer to clear the debt in exchange for an apology.
Depending on whether you have helped your chums find work for the side quest A Friend in Need… or not, they will either still be in Sasau, they’ll be en-route to Miller Oliver in Ledetchko, or they’ll already be there – you can follow their progress on the world map.
Bring Fritz the good news to end the quest. The pair don’t actually go and apologise to Elias, though, unless they somehow do it when you’re not looking.
