Kingdom Come Deliverance: On the Scent
Henry must continue to make use of his detective senses here. Head south to the remote village of Ledetchko – it’s southwest of Talmberg and northwest of Rattay – but you should have a marker on your map anyway. The investigation here follows much the same procedure as before: talk to one of the citizens on the subject of Reeky and you’ll be referred to a tanner in the south of the village, who is said to be Reeky’s dad.
You’ll also be able to fulfill an optional quest objective. Henry will be referred to a woman known as the Bath-house Wench, who is said to be familiar with Reeky. Be sure to talk to her before concluding the main objective if you want to tick every box, and discover some hidden treasure, as that secondary goal will fail once the story moves along.
Let’s do that then, and receive some information about buried loot. Reeky’s father will be near his house for the day (south of the village and at quest marker B on your map), but before you talk to him, grab the nearby shovel and prepare to dig to find the gold. There’s some loose earth next to a pile of stones – that’s where the treasure is buried. For your effort, you’ll find a bag with over 100 Groschen, a gambeson, and a piece of armour.
Talk to Reeky’s father afterwards and he’ll mention a potential hiding place for Reeky, who apparently makes a few pennies working as a poacher. The exact location is unknown to him, but the man that runs the local tavern may know more. So hop to the nearby building on the opposite side of the river (again, quest marker B on your map).
The man is usually waiting outside. Exhaust all the questions and you’ll learn of four potential hiding places.
Tracing Reeky’s hideout
Don’t go searching all of the hideouts in turn, as that would be a right waste of time. The game will mark the other three objectives as failed quests if you head immediately to the correct location, but that’s the only downside really. So go straight to the cave to the northeast of Ledetchko (quest marker B on your map).
You’ll find Reeky inside, who you’ll learn was one of four bandits who had no desire to contribute to the Neuhof murders. They are: Limpy Lubbosh, Reeky, a man named Timmy, and Pius Paven, four (relatively) kind-hearted bandits who didn’t wish to have blood on their hands. Paven, the mastermind behind the attack, is dead, meaning that Timmy is who you should look for next. Before you go to meet him, however, there’s the little matter of the vicious bandits who have just appeared outside Reeky’s hideout.
