Some fans believe the main antagonists in The Witcher season 2 will be the Ladies of the Wood, based on an illustration from the first teaser images.
Any followers of The Witcher believe that a promotional poster has revealed the identities of season 2’s main villains. The famous Netflix series is set to return in late 2021, but no specific date has been set. The Witcher, focused on Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, has become a worldwide online phenomenon.
CD Projekt Red first licenced Sapkowski’s novels as the basis for a lucrative series of adventure role-playing video games featuring Geralt of Rivia, a mediaeval monster hunter for hire. The games piqued Netflix’s imagination, and the company created a series based on the games and books, featuring Henry Cavill witcher as a younger Geralt. The exhibition was more popular than the games, and it introduced a new wave of fantasy fans to The Witcher’s universe.
The Witcher season 2 fans have been waiting for excitement, and they were recently satisfied by a slew of new images from the set. An image depicting three skeletons posing as women has piqued the interest of Witcher fans. They suspect the bones are a nod to the Ladies in the Wood, a trio of witches that appear as villains in The Witcher 3.
Walkthrough of the Ladies of the Wood
Ladies of the Wood is the main quest in Velen. This search is the key to uncovering further information about Ciri’s encounters with the Crookback Bog witches and the Bloody Baron’s wife.
You’ll see a weird symbol with a statue pointing you to Trail of Treats when you enter, close to the girl in “Ciri’s Story: King of the Wolves.” In your Witcher Senses, follow the red tracks. You may also clearly follow the road to Crookback Bog’s heart, where some children are having fun. Gran, as the kids affectionately refer to her, approaches you, joking with her grandchildren. She gets irritated when you interrupt them, so she puts one of the children in timeout. Unfortunately, it is the kid who is familiar with the name Johnny. Speak to the other kids about how you can get them to help you distract Gran so you can talk to the boy about Johnny’s mate.
If you play hide and seek with the kids or lure them with sweets, they will happily assist you (which you will find on the Trail of Treats). Using the Witcher Senses to track the kids that are hiding while you’re playing Hide and Seek. Follow the footsteps of the four kids. One can be hidden in a mound of hay and the other in a hedge straight ahead behind the house. One of the children is hidden behind Gran’s fence, while the other is hiding inside a neighbor’s home. They uphold their end of the bargain and keep Gran’s eyes diverted until they’re all found. If you lure them with sugar, they’ll go distract Gran right away.
Within, inquire about Johnny with the boy; it turns out that Johnny resides in the bog itself. Exit the houses by following the marker. Drowners and a Water Hag can be encountered. Kill them and use your Witcher Senses to help you. A small number of footprints can be seen. Following them to Johnny’s burrow is a good idea. You attempt to interrogate the strange-looking boy (who turns out to be a Godling), but he is mute. Support the kid restore his voice by following him.
He leads you to the side of a small mountain. Climb to the top of a raven’s nest to inspect it. After fighting the three harpies and probably a wyvern, investigate the nest. Take the glass and a feather for you. Bring the bottle to Johnny, and he’ll regain his voice! Ciri has been used by Johnny. What’s the location? In the same village where you were just! Return with Johnny to persuade Gran to assist you.
Gran is persuaded, and she channels the Crones so Geralt (Henry Cavill witcher) can communicate with them. They’ll teach you about Ciri after you’ve exorcised a dark spirit from a nearby village. Go to Downwarren Village, which is marked on your map. To learn more about this dark spirit, speak with the elder man. Drive Roach to the spooky tree with the details in hand. You are warned to stay away by a strange voice that appears out of nowhere. Ignore that and approach; there is a werewolf in the vicinity; destroy the beast and enter. When you enter, a new quest called “The Whispering Hillock” will begin.
Return to the cave’s entrance to speak with the alderman until the tree spirit is alive or dead. The elder man would respond differently depending on what you did for the tree spirit. In any case, he’ll sever his lip. Return to the village in Crookback Bog with the ear. The Crones make their presence known. Let them the ear and tell them about Ciri’s brief stay there.
The Crones of Crookback Bog and The Good Ladies
The Ladies of the Wood, also known as The Crones of Crookback Bog and The Good Ladies, appear in many quests in The Witcher 3. Apart from the fact that the Crones are not human and that they perform magic unlike any other mage, nothing is known about them. Some claim to love children and to look after any child that is brought to them. Others claim that those who treat them with reverence will be granted boons, and those who insult them will be cursed.
In certain ways, both of the tales are real, but the Crones are only fond of children in the sense that they love feasting on them, and they often trade children (whom they fatten up in the grand old fairy tale tradition) for favours. They aren’t picky, and many a man who has ventured into the woods to investigate rumours of the Ladies in the Wood being young, pretty, and lustful has been made a meal of.
It would be impossible to depict the Ladies in the Wood as they existed in the game, but making them portrayed by a trio of skeletons seems like a reasonable substitute. They would undoubtedly be a daunting opponent for (Henry cavill witcher) Geralt in The Witcher, and their exploits could easily fill an entire season. Geralt could easily spend some time researching rumours about lost children while discovering the facts about the Ladies, or he could even be summoned to conduct a service by the Ladies themselves.
He may even be summoned by a nobleman whose wife has gone missing, having pledged herself to a year of servitude to the Crones in return for a wish without her husband’s knowledge, as in the game. The only assurance is that viewers will be anxiously awaiting the release of The Witcher season 2 on Netflix.
