that there is an actual depth and implied continuation of those relationships. with Cynthia in Chapter III if (a) following Iorveth's path and (b) resolving The. Iorweth (Iorveth in the English version of the games) was an Aen Seidhe elf and the The relations between Vernon Roche and Iorveth were certainly complicated. Still, he gave safe passage, allowing the witcher to meet Saskia without. it was so cool if saskia and iorveth took part in the battle of kaer morhan .. needed to further explain the relationship dynamic between them.
Female elves were transcendental. They had ten, up to twenty, years in-between each ovulation.

All elves were equally beautiful, equally sensitive. They had less variety to choose from. Thus elves were bored to extinction. Children among them were sporadical at best - not only because of those 'technical difficulties' as Yarpen once put it - elven females were less eager to go through pregnancy, which ended with bloody and painful labour.
They viewed children as parasites that right from the conception were sucking vital minerals from their beautiful hosts. The idea of possible loosing of teeth or sight was too earth bounding to make any efforts, thus even at the bring of extinction, elven females just couldn't force themselves to find anything lyrical about it at all, unlike humans who made a cult out of fertility.
For them it wasn't a burden but a blessing in which they believed wholeheartedly. Just as any other race elves liked exotic features. Surprisingly, what that particular elder race found exotic were uneven teeth, tangy smell of sweat and, especially, hairy just about everything on a body that resembled elven built.
Elves were so jealous of human body hair just as passionately as the latter hated it and tried to get rid of it with blades, wax, ointments and, even, magic. To sum things up what elves really wanted was imperfection. Well… the grass was always greener on the other side of the fence. Vergen was a challenge for them - eventually elves had to get out of their timeless comfort zones to compete with all those hairy monkeys and disgusting cockroaches that constantly tried to woo to bed pretty much everyone no matter of size, race and age.
In exchange they were not that impressed by long, metaphorical poems and hand holding that non-humans had in store for them. So we, as species, smell and pheromone all right.

The point is that at the climax of our meetings we just take care that… ehmmm… sword match the sheath and there are four pointy ears in a pair… that's all, m'lady" "Elves don't mind" someone from the crowd added hurriedly. The human representatives looked embarrassed.
Ah yes, for her citizens she was still the virgin of Aedirn. So we came with that idea, because you know the mages claim that the smell and pheromones affect elven femal-…" "ok, I- I get it now" Truth to be told, the Dragonslayer didn't know how to respond to this trend: I'm pretty sure certain people in the company would love to talk about this and if people here ever get to go to the conventions like Comic Con or whatever, ask about Iorveth, I doubt the question will get dodged.
If it is, that would be interesting. However, I'm pretty sure there's also something in their contracts that forbids them from talking about these cut ideas willy nilly, because the ideas belong to the company. I don't know the full story about this, but I think the anger needs to decrease a bit.
It disappointing that Iorveth isn't in the game.

You know I feel this way, it's why I've tried to find out what happened. It also definitely should have been communicated, but getting very upset now won't change anything.
It'll just give you high blood pressure. Honestly, I don't understand why some people take my comments in the worst way. Not the entire studio. Disappointed would be the word.
