Kaedweni Camp - Overview
Kaedweni camp is a pretty large war camp with a lot of points of interest. This section covers them all up and any quests related to them are further explained on their pages.
1 - King Henselt
This tent here is the residence of King Henselt, the ruler of Kaedwen. He's set out on a war campaign against Upper Aedirn and Vergen stands on his way. During Act II, he's in the focus of most of the main quests, including The Assassins of Kings
, The Blood Curse
, Faith Symbolized
2 - Count Tybalt
Count Tybalt is a knight of the Flaming Rose. Once you meet him, he'll immediately accuse you as a killer of Siegfried and Jacques De Aldesberg (Grandmaster from the first game) and charge to attack you. There's nothing else to do with him other than beat him and thankfully, no one else interferes during the fight.
3 - Dethmold
Every king is supposed to have a sorcerer/sorceress advisor and King Henselt is no exception. Dethmold is his royal advisor and as such, plays a prominent role in this act as well. Quests that include him are The Assassins of Kings
and Conspiracy Theory
4 - Sile de Tansarville
You can discuss various topics with Sile, including the Wild Hunt, Triss, her rival Dethmold and her reason for staying in the Pontar Valley. Her involvement in the main quests is somewhat reduced in this act though she lends you a talisman which can get you safely across the mist in The Blood Curse

and Robust Red Meteorite Sword
. You might also notice a diagram for draug's armor, but don't let it fool you: you can't craft it until Act III and there are much better armors available there from the start. Lasota is also the best dice player around, as demonstrated in the quest Poker Face: Kaedweni Camp
. Zyvik will also stay here once you meet him in front of the gates and he gives the side quest Lost Lambs
