Act III is the third and last section of the Campaign Mode, after Act II.

Story[edit | edit source]

Act III is the last Act of the game. After the events of the previous Act, the inn is visited by the corrupt Yorevale chancellor, Trovin, who seems set on making the protagonist's life harder - although there might be a second layer to his near-impossible requests and demands.

Trovin's arrival causes another character to appear - Baron Ezariah, a new ally, who seems to know all about the world of politics, Trovin's games, and the innkeeper's past.

Game mechanics[edit | edit source]

The ending of the game depends on the player's actions and decisions during this last Act of the game, both regarding relationships with NPCs and Factions in general. There are twelve possible endings, six good and six bad.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Important notice: While the other Acts are rather self-explanatory, the last Act of the game places the player in front of many important choices. Because of that this walkthrough is full of major spoilers.

Act III begins.

Quest name: Make some real money

Description: Finally you can start making real money - go for it!

This Quest name lets you develop bigger inn. Make sure you're ready for what comes next before moving forward.

To complete this Quest name, you need to:

As long as this task is active, Vedetas will visit your inn about once a day. You can also unlock the perk related to them in the Journal, so that there is a bigger chance of them appearing. To hire Vedeta you need to rent her a Private room. Each Vedeta needs a room with a Vedeta bed (a big bed with curtains), a changing screen (for dressing and undressing), and a dresser (a piece of furniture with a mirror).

Next create trade route with Ricodi (Ricodi is a Sambrian town south of the inn).

After completing the Quest name, a dialogue with Martyn appears. He tells the player about a mysterious letter warning him about Chancellor Trovin's imminent visit.

Quest name: Trovin's arrival

Description: A mysterious letter has warned you about the arrival of chancellor Trovin – a man, who, supposedly, worked with Lady Commander...

(IMPORTANT NOTE: during the following five quests the player will be given five times an option to choose a plan of either the Baron or Martyn; choosing one more often than the other affects the relation with those characters and the ending both of this part of the game and the whole game in general; Baron's path is always easier; Baron's path always leads to destroying a given Faction)

Trovin arrives and gives the innkeeper his first task - renting him a Private room. At the same time, the innkeeper's supposed debt to Trovin starts increasing - 100 guldens for each hour without a rented room. From this time on, every 12 hours Trovin will start dialogue asking the innkeeper to pay his debt.

Quest name: Solve the Aviary matter

Description: Figure out what to do about the Aviary. The options are many, and the only question that matters is: which one is the best for your inn?

You rent room to Trovin. Trovin informs you about your next task and his new tax: he sets a guest limit in your tavern to max 10 people. Every hour your debt to Trovin increases by 10 guldens for each guest over the limit. Next, Trovin tells you that you can stop this tax from being obligatory by getting rid of the Aviary. You talk to Martyn about the situation, when a new character - Baron Ezariah - join the conversation.

Both Baron and Martyn propose different ways of making the Aviary disappear.

Baron's path:

  • (this path is easier; it destroys the faction)
  • Baron gives you a bottle raquore - a semi-legendary alcohol - and tells you to get Renmy drunk and make him reveal the secret location of the Aviary's base of operations - the Nest
  • Baron tells you to place a notice board in front of the tavern
  • Summon Renmy by clicking on notice board and select "secret message" option from the context menu to summon Renmy
  • After Renmy appears, start a conversation with him. Choose dialogue options with the crossed out Aviary symbol; this will lead to the arrest of the intoxicated Renmy

Martyn's path:

  • Martyn tells you to place notice board in front of the tavern and summon Renmy
  • Summon Renmy by clicking on notice board and selecting "secret message" option from the context menu

  • Put storage items in Renmy's room; select food in Storage settings and set priority to max
  • After storages are filled with 100 pieces of any food item, Renmy thanks you and leaves the inn, promising to lay low for some time

After finishing Baron's or Martyn's path, Trovin informs the innkeeper, that the ban has been canceled - and introduces a new tax.

Quest name: Solve the Couriers matter

Description: Figure out what to do about the Couriers. What's best for your inn? What for the kingdom? The questions are many - and the decision will be final.

Trovin informs the innkeeper about a new tax and a new task to complete for the tax to be lifted: Trovin bans people in the inn from using rooms above the ground floor; the tax will be canceled if the innkeeper gets rid of the Couriers.

Once again Both Baron and Martyn propose different ways of making the Couriers disappear.

Quest name: Defeat Trovin

(the description of the quest depends on whose plans the player has chosen more, Baron's or Martyn's; it also affects which path the player will be given)

Description (Baron): It wasn't easy, but you've managed to deal with five of the most powerful factions in Delcrys, one way or another. The time has come to defeat chancellor Trovin and finally get your revenge.

OR

Description (Martyn): Here it is. The final stretch. You've earned Trovin's trust and now you can use it against him. Avenge king Owen. Save the kingdom. Save yourself. Save your inn. Be the hero Martyn and the baron believe you can be.

Baron's path:

  • Accomodate vedeta called Raisa
  • After you rent her a room, she'll walk up to Trovin and ask him to join her
  • After the deed is done, Trovin leaves Rita's bed bleeding and dies
    • *if Raisa doesn't kill Trovin, you might have to reload a save from before renting a room to her

Martyn's path:

  • Accomodate a pirate
  • Talk to Trovin

Quest name: A goodbye to a friend...

Description: With Baron's help organize for Martyn the best wake Delcrys has ever seen. Make it a night to remember!

After Martyn dies in a cutscene, you get a new, temporary employee - Baron. You start conversation with him by clicking the exclamation mark above his head. He'll give you money and tell to prepare a wake for Martyn.

Two sub-tasks appear:

  • hang Martyn's portrait inside the inn and
  • place Martyn's grave outside

The painting and the grave can both be found in the Decorative section in Furnish Mode.

After hanging the painting and choosing a spot for the resting place of Martyn, another task appears: accept condolences. Groups of people start appearing, each bringing one person with a exclamation mark. Depending on your previous choices regarding Factions, their representatives might also appear. After accepting all condolences, you get a new task: listen to Baron's speech.

After listening to Baron's speech, the Event Dialogue Window appears. The event may have 5 different progressions, depending on your Inkeeper Skills, but the outcome is always the same: you find out that Baron Ezariah was responsible for killing king Owen and Martyn. After confessing, Ezariah leaves your inn, threatening to return soon.

Quest name: Decide on your - and the kingdom's - future

Description: Rent a room to one of the representatives of a Faction - or tell them all to leave. What will it be? It seems this is a moment you get to decide on your future, as well as that of the whole kingdom, seeing how the two seem to be intertwined....

Baron flees during cut-scene. Depending on your previous choices, you're left with 1-6 of your allies in the inn - countess Ellisa and 5 Faction representatives.

If every faction in Delcrys has been destroyed, a dialogue with Ellisa appears. The dialogue ends the game with you deciding to remain a humble innkeeper.

If you've spared at least one Faction, Ellisa and a Faction(s) representative(s) still remain(s) around in your inn. You can talk to each of them. During conversation, each representative offers you help in defeating Baron Ezariah and becoming a new king of Yorevale. After talking to a representative, you can rent them a room or ask them to leave. No matter if there are representatives of Factions in the inn, countess Ellisa always appears, and renting her a room is one of the six options possible. Renting a room to Ellisa or a representative starts one of the six final quest objectives. You may rent a room to only one NPC, thus making this choice a final decision.

Quest name: Life of an innkeeper...

Description: A life of an innkeeper is not an easy one - especially when one turns out to be an illegitimate son of an assassinated king. But you did all you could to fight, survive, and build your own kingdom. Remaining an innkeeper is your choice - one that no one can take away from you.

Renting a room to Ellisa ends the game with you remaining an innkeeper. Depending on your prior relationship with Martyn, this unlocks one of two endings (good/bad).

Renting a room to a representative of a Faction begins a final quest. The innkeeper has to work one last time with the Faction, to both impress them - and get their help in defeating the baron. Each Faction has similar demands:

  • getting reputation among their corresponding Social Group
  • accommodating members of their Faction
  • creating a trade route(s)
  • performing one special thing, depending on the Faction

There are always four tasks to complete, but completing just two is enough to finish the game. Depending on the relation with the Faction/Faction's representative, you get either a good or a bad ending. Completing all four of the abovementioned tasks increases the chances of a good ending.
