This new trailer for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings details the state of the world following the events of the last game. Four kings rule the land, each with their own set of unique flaws and problems. Frankly, they all come across as dickheels. Not a pleasant place to live.
One of the kings, however, was always asking for trouble, because he has an advisor called Dethmold. Who the HELL takes advice from a man called Dethmold? That name sounds like two bad things rolled together. You never listen to the guy who has a name that sounds like bad things.
How do people like Grima Wormtongue, Baron Dark and Dethmold get jobs? Fantasy kings appear to be far more trusting than I.
