Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Return to Sentinel Stand[edit | edit source]
You will arrive in Sentinel stand but from a different point of entry than before. The containers are re-locked and re-filled. To the west are embattled Earthshakers (fodder if you're not fighting for the Disfavored). Make your way to the central area, fight through the confrontation between Janos and Rumalan, all the way to the storm-blocked wall. You'll find your allies in the north-eastern corner of the map, generic characters or Jagged Remedy if you're working for the Chorus.
Fight to the innerkeep[edit | edit source]
Once you arrive in Sentinel Stand, you will be confronted with several groups of unbroken, once these are disposed off you find Disfavored soldiers waiting in front of the storm-blocked path, with the steadfast insignia, you can clear the way and enter the next zone the innerkeep.
Enter Sentinel Stand innerkeep[edit | edit source]
Once you reach the walls of the innerkeep you will meet the Tiersman loyal to the regent, they are guarding the gate. Once you start dialogue with them the regent will interrupt you and a new dialogue will start. You cannot convince Straydus Herodin to give up resulting in the gate closing and fighting the guards. Once the guards are defeated you can open up the gate again with the mechanism to the left of the gate.
Pursue Straydus Herodin[edit | edit source]
Straydus Herodin will fall back, you will have to fight through several groups of enemies which are not too challenging, the path you have to take is through the pit in the center of the keep and up the stairs to the east of that pit. One you are at the top of the stairs you can enter the door.
Inside you will find the head of your allied force in the Blade Grave (Jagged Remedy and Mattias for the Chorus, Dimitris with the Disfavored, Mattias for the Unbroken) talking with the regent, a new dialogue will trigger in which you will have no choice but to fight with the regent. Once he is defeated Amelia (Ashe's daughter) will enter, she is now allied with the Tiersmen and will try to convince you to stop. You have no choice but to kill the regent, she will leave the room and you can kill the regent in which ever way you like.
However, this does not end the edict.
Send Amelia to Nerat[edit | edit source]
If you are playing for the Chorus, then Amelia will be sent to Voices of Nerat. Sirin will gain major fear if present, as you will be asked to persuade Amelia to meet with Nerat. Subterfuge and the Diplomat background are most helpful. If you are successful without killing her, Voices of Nerat will gain major Favor.
End the Edict of Storms[edit | edit source]
Follow Amelia and you will find out that she had a child with the regent, now you have a choice. You can either kill both Amelia and the child, ending the quest and ending the Edict, while Graven Ashe will be mad but he will forgive you. This option will cost you standing with both the Disfavoured and Graven Ashe. However, the companions won't mind if you smother the baby. Even Eb will state that the real crime was bringing her into the world, knowing the conditions of the Edict. Forcing companions to do it, however, will gain major Fear with each.
Or you can try to find another way. Note, in order to accomplish all of this, you must ask Amelia to calm down first, rather than imply in any way that you want to kill her child (strange how mothers are, eh?).
- If you return to Graven Ashe this will hurt your standing with him, and he will ask you to kill her regardless. If you keep insisting you want to save Amelia and the child he will give in, he will let you go to the Burning Library if you also do some work for him there (you want The First Kings of Stalwart, which contains the pertinent information). The Burning Library is also one of the choices to siege in the next part of this quest line.
- Alternatively, go to Fatebinder Calio and ask her about Unbroken bloodlines. She will provide you with the precise form for Amelia to speak to sever the bloodline.
- This can be skipped if the Player has high enough lore skill (62 Lore skill), allowing Amelia to abdicate her daughters claim.
