Kingdom Come: Deliverance

A Needle in a Haystack

Now that you have been inducted into the monastery, you will have to begin acting like a proper monk.

Brother Antonius will introduce himself to you immediately after the induction ritual. It is important that you learn as much as possible from him.

Take the tour with Antonius if you wish, but you can choose to skip it to speed things along. Life as a monk inside the monastery is not the most exciting and certainly does not compare to hunting bandits and Cumans. When you are done with Antonius, seek out the other novices and get to know them. You are looking for any indication that one of them might be Pious. At this stage you will most likely find them in the courtyard gardens.

Once Antonius has admitted to being Pious he will suggest a plan of escape. You can either choose to kill him there and then or agree to the plan in order to bring him back to Rattay. If you agree to the plan you will need to acquire the keys to the monastery from the Prior. These can either be pickpocketed from him, or you can find them on a shelf in one of the back rooms behind the kitchen.

Look for the keys to the monastery on a shelf in the store room beyond the kitchen.

On your way out, be sure to order the blood to arrive the next day from the paper found in the kitchen.

When you have found the keys and ordered the blood, follow the other monks to the sleeping area and go to bed until dawn. When you wake up, the first thing you should do is collect the blood from the kitchen.

Collect the blood from the kitchen when there are no other priests or monks in the vicinity. The best time to do this is during morning prayer or just before breakfast.

Once you have collected both keys and blood, you will have to eat with the others and continue the day as normal by completing your duties. After evening mass, meet with Antonius in the dormitory or follow him there by noting when he leaves mass early.

Back in Rattay the Bailiff will keep Pious under lock and key. Wait in the jail house until morning for your possessions to be returned to your inventory.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open-world RPG set in the last throes of the Middle Ages. The year is 1403 and the Kingdom of Bohemia is about to be plunged into turmoil. Henry, a resdient of the castle town Skalitz, is the son of a renowned blacksmith. When Skalitz is attacked, both of his parents are killed by the invading forces of Hungarian King Sigismund, led by Sir Markvart von Aulitz. Henry's quest then becomes your own; to exact vengeance upon those who destroyed his hometown, friends and family. Along the way, Henry finds himself embroiled in the affairs of the great lords in the region. Rather than give in to the hatred fueled by the death of his boyhood, Henry decides to become a man and help in any way that he can against the ramifications of the assault on Skalitz.
