The Witcher Feature of the Week

CD Projekt's official The Witcher website has been updated with a new "Feature of the Week", this time with chief designer Michal Madej answering more of the community's questions in a new fan Q&A. A snippet:
Q: Will the monsters drop any items like swords, armors, gold or maybe you have something different in mind, like their organs which can be used as ingredients for mixtures?

A: The rule is simple, we aim for realism. If you kill a wolf for example he won't drop any gold or magic bow. If you kill a monster you can expect unique ingredients (like wivern's torn). If you kill a city guard you'll be able to loot his equipment, any gold he had. By killing exceptional monsters you get something else, every situation is different :).
