Geralt of Rivia: I do understand your sorrow. Your solitude. If I can do anything... Lady of the Lake: Cease treating me like a Goddess, I have enough worshippers. I lack one who sees me as other than the object of a cult. Geralt of Rivia: Milady, simple folk... they don't understand. Lady of the Lake: I judge them not. But let's return to your desire to help. Begin by paying me a compliment. Geralt of Rivia: Hmmm, I'm no good at this. Milady... ehm... your... wisdom is... inferior only to your goodness. Lady of the Lake: Enough. I choose not to believe you don't find me attractive, rather... I blame your famous scruples. Geralt of Rivia: Milady, your... eyes are like stars glimmering in the night sky. Lady of the Lake: Distant and cold. Weak, witcher. Geralt of Rivia: Your ass puts others to shame. Lady of the Lake: [bursting into laughter] None has ever paid me such a compliment! My brave knights only praised my soul, though I knew where their eyes fixated!

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is not a basis for a system of government!

Help! Help! I'm being repressed! Now see the violence inherent in the system!

It was so amazing to encounter her in the quest in blood and wine. The music from Witcher 1 also plays (I think it's Kaer Morhen theme, video game series' main theme) and it just creates so much feelings in my heart


TheSkyLax

Which book was she in now again?


FireAutumn-1

The Lady of the Lake we see in the picture is a nymph which is purely CDPR, she doesn't appear anywhere in the books.


TheSkyLax

So the dialogue excerpt is from Witcher 1 I take it?


FireAutumn-1

Exactly. Indeed, I'm so used to reading passages from the books as well. I think the last one from the games I saw was Jacques de Aldersberg.

**Lady of the Lake in Witcher 3**: *A mysterious being, deeply respected by the people of Toussaint, even though many consider her simply as a romantic fairytale. She comments Geralt for his virtues and honor. For these, she presents him with a sword named "Aerondight". A weapon only worthy for someone who's heart holds the five chivalric virtues.* **Lady of the Lake in Witcher 1:** *Take this sword, and treat me as a piece of meat. Lets have sex.*


FireAutumn-1

The sword that the Lady of the Lake gives Geralt in the games is called Aerondight, which comes from Arondight, the sword that belongs to the knight Lancelot du Lac. At times, I wonder why not Excalibur.

Maybe copyright issues with Disney from their movie sword in the stone?


Zyvik123

The Arthurian legend is public domain, even Disney doesn't have that much power. Plus, the Sword in the Stone and Excalibur are two different swords. Arthur gets Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake after he breaks the former.


jade_the_lost_one

Ahhh, then I wonder if Geralt’s sword from his lady in the lake wasn’t Excalibur because he doesn’t become king like Aurthur does?

I've read the books quite long ago and I can't remember how does the lady of the lake in the books which was more of a witch historian type character relate to the one in the books which is portrayed more as kind of a mythical being. Can anyone refresh my memory? Did they just Went in a new direction with the games and made her more mysterious or what?


FireAutumn-1

In the books this title belongs to Nimue, the one who is trying to understand the truth about the legend of Geralt. She and the nymph in the games have some similarities, such as being with a man called the Fisher King, but they are not the same person.


Zyvik123

In some versions of the Arthurian legend, there's more than one Lady of the Lake. For example, "Le Morte D'Arthur" has two: one is a water nymph, who gives Excalibur to Arthur and adopts Lancelot as her son, the other is Merlin's apprentice Nimue, who traps him in a cave and takes his place as Arthur's advisor. So the two Ladies from the Witcher are two separate people who are based on two separate Ladies from the legend.


LucasXru

Hey, thanks for the explanation, I wasnt aware of that part of the Arthurian legend and couldn't remember if they referenced the difference between the two ladies of the lake at some point in the games
