Svetlana's Ring

Nathan Garvin
Scott Peers

After fending off the bandit attack on Oleg’s Trading Post and sleeping overnight, talk to Svetlana, who sheepishly attempts to waste your time asking for a favor. Indulge her and she’ll ask you to recover her wedding ring if you find it during your battle with the bandits… and more interestingly, she’ll beg you to spare the life of a “dark-haired woman who wields dual axes” if you should encounter her. Interesting… Good or evil, don’t turn her down and you’ll get the quest Svetlana’s Ring. Everybody can use the experience, after all.

(1 of 2) You can get Svetlana's Wedding Ring via diplomacy

You can get Svetlana's Wedding Ring via diplomacy (left), or through violence. (right)

You’ll find this “dark-haired woman who wields dual axes” in Thorn Ford, leading a group of bandits in the southeastern corner of the area. Turns out it’s none other than Kressle, and your encounter with her here will vary depending on whether you’ve completed the Ancient Tomb or not prior to this. If not you’ll find a rather dignified man named Akiros Insmort, otherwise you’ll talk directly with Kressle. Either way, if you pick the [Lawful Good], [Chaotic Good], [Neutral] or [Neutral Evil] options you’ll end up having to fight Kressle and the bandits. Only if your protagonist is Good-aligned can you pick the [Requires Good] response, which seems to succeed because it points out the Stag Lord is the “wrong leader” for these lands.

Reward: For resolving your encounter with Kressle peacefully
189 XP / Svetlana’s Wedding Ring

If you have to fight, kill Kressle and her bandits and loot her for Svetlana’s Ring, otherwise she’ll give you the ring as a parting gift if you talk your way out of a fight. With the ring in hand, return to Svetlana to complete this quest.

Reward: For returning Svetlana’s Wedding Ring and Sparing Kressle
214 XP / Camping Supplies and Rations x10

At the mansion of the Swordlord Jamandi Aldori, adventurers have gathered, lured by the promise of dominion should one of them conquer the nearby Stolen Lands and oust its current overlord - the Stag Lord. You are one such adventurer, and Jamandi’s offer isn’t just a benevolent call-to-arms to make the Stolen Lands safe for normal folk, there’s political angles to its conquest, and the ultimate allegience of its new ruler. More than that, however, a sinister, primordial force has her own interests in the Stolen Lands, and a desire to see new rulers rise… and fall. The Pathfinder: Kingmaker guide includes a full walkthrough of the game’s main campaign, including various side quests, companion quests and strategies.
