Kingdom Come Deliverance: Damsel in Distress
A woman has been kidnapped. A woman named Esther, to be precise. This optional side quest is a spin-off of the main quest All That Glisters; follow that until you come to investigate an apprentice named Florian in Sasau, whose girlfriend Esther has gone missing. While you can wrap up that quest without rescuing Esther, it won’t take very long.
Find where Esther is being held prisoner
Open up your map and look for Rovna in the north. Southwest of the town, a quest marker has appeared offering you your first hint as to where she is likely to be found. You may need to do a bit of mountaineering to climb a small hill there, but if you approach it from all directions, sooner or later you’ll find a path that will protect Henry’s footwear and his poor aching joints. A little way to the south of the yellow quest circle you’ll find a camp, where Esther is being held against her will.
Henry will have to deal with three attackers now, which will be a tough fight if you want to take them on with a melee weapon. If necessary, don’t be afraid to hang back with the bow and shoot them in the head. Otherwise you can wait until nightfall, and sneak into the camp. One of the bandits may still be up and about patrolling, but the other two should be asleep. Creep up on them and take the key to the hut where Esther is being held captive, or just pick the Very Easy lock with your lockpick. Be warned, however, that Esther won’t talk to you if you’re in combat, and she could be injured if the bandits wake up while she’s escaping.
Follow Esther away from the camp, before accompanying her home. Now, go see Florian to tell him the good news.
