Kingdom Come Deliverance: Mightier than the Sword
Like most people in the Middle Ages, Henry can’t read. If you’d like that to change, be sure to talk to the bailiff on the subject during the main quest Train Hard, Fight Easy, where you’ll be given this quest to do so.
If you set off from Rattay, where the bailiff lives, you should first head northeast to the village of Neuhof (where the main quest The Hunt Begins takes place). You may need to sleep there before heading northwest for Talmberg, which should already be marked on your map. From Talmberg, set off in a northeast direction, keeping to the marked path until you reach the village of Uzhitz, where your tutor resides.
Find the scribe
The man operates out of a room near the market. Look for a red and black wooden sign with three potions and a feather on it – so that you know you’re in the right place, a pop-up will appear once you’ve discovered his home. Tell the scribe that you want to learn how to read, and he’ll happily oblige. (Well, if you give him 50 Groschen first.) After a short cutscene, look at the book on the table, which you should be able to decipher, despite Henry’s literary difficulties. Reply to the scribe that “being greedy doesn’t pay,” and he’ll next ask you to look over some Latin text. Sit back down and read the next book, responding to the scribe’s question with the words “Nullus est liber tam malus, ut non…” etc etc.
The delighted scribe will then inform you that he can’t teach you anything more, and thus ends your extensive reading lessons – if only it was so easy in real life. As a result of this arduous endeavour, you will have gained a new level in Reading, and will now able to read text out in the world.
