Quest Text

“The White Wolf”, “the Butcher of Blaviken” – Geralt gathered many sobriquets on his Path, one of which was the colorful and, I dare say, apt, appellation of “Puss Peepers.” This he gained during his adventure with Olgierd, when a cheeky young woman in Olgierd’s company pinned him as the man best able to track down the scoundrel who killed her friend, Kluivert.

Go outside and move to the window to which the tracks on the bed were pointing.

    On A Rose In A Red Field, it does not work if you kill just Ulrich. You have to kill all the knights. Unless there is glich in my game. Multiple times I killed Ulrich, then I died fighing the other knights. My game never moved on. I have killed Ulrich about 5 times and each time I was killed later by the other knights. Juat now, I was finally able to beat this area, after I killed every knight.
