Rescue your Family
After a bit of time, the bandit leader Radagos, who you defeated during the tutorial, will arrive to talk to you. He explains that he found your siblings, but was betrayed by one of his own (Galter). He asks to join you in finding Galter, but wants the pleasure of killing him in return.
You have misgivings about the ordeal, but agree to find the nearby hideout where Galter is apparently keeping your siblings. Head there and you'll meet up with Radagos who explains that Galter is a cunning fellow "in a low and base kind of way."
Kill all the troops leading to Galter, and you'll square off against him and some men. You can choose to either fight him one-on-one, or have your men butcher them. Radagos will then execute Galter. You'll be reunited with your brother Nathanos, who will inform you that your other siblings are fine (if a little shaken). You'll also have the decision to either punish Radagos for his past crimes or let him go since he helped you save your remaining family.
Journey through different villagers and ask about the kidnapped daughter. When nearby, you'll get a prompt that says "they're still hiding here". Choose take a walk and find the smoke from the fire in a camp just outside of the main village but still in the map.
Choose to either:
- Convince the girl to go home. She'll do this automatically.
- Kill her lover in a duel and bring her home.
- Let them go.
Landlord Needs Access To The Commons
Journey to the location asked to encounter the locals.
- Side with quest giver to get around 1250 gold, +7 Reputation with quest giver, and -3 Reputation with the non-quest giver village notable NPC
- Side with the villagers to get +4 Reputation with the non-quest giver village notable NPC and -7 Reputation with quest giver.
Kill enemies that are weaker than you, then return once you have the experience needed.
Gang Leader Needs Weapons
Buy a large quantity of the weapon type asked for in a nearby town. If stopped by a guard, persuade or bribe the guard.
The Spy Among Us
Talk to the locals in the town given to you by the Noble until you get all the clues. Once done, save the game in case the clues given aren't helpful. You'll need to identify the correct suspect standing by the local thugs and accuse him. Kill him in the arena. If you had the right suspect, you'll complete the quest. Kill an innocent duellist and not only will you fail the mission, you'll be suspected of murder.
Landlord Needs Manual Laborers
After accepting this quest, go find some bandits to fight and take as many prisoner as you can. Return to the village and sell them off to complete the quest. You'll need to sell 36 of them in total, but this can be done in multiple visits.
