About this mod

Epic Lore Realism Gameplay Overhaul - the lorified, more plausible, challenging and immersive experience. For the "Classic" version (1.32).

Permissions and credits


Geralt of Rivia, the reknown witcher 'the Butcher of Blaviken', obviously got some Amnesia once again.
So it happened after the adventures within the Assassins of Kings stories, where he gained back a lot of his skills.
Nothing is really known about this new skill loss. Mutation and alchemy sideeffects?
It might also have to do with his love affair with the charming sorceress Triss Merigold?
And then his re-occuring rememberance to whom his love actually belongs, namely Yennefer of Vengerberg?
Pretty sure magic connects the both. Or was it caused by something else? Does it get revealed? Perhaps.

And what's more? Misfortune never comes singly!
On the way to Kaer Morhen, Geralt was entirely robbed out by a large group of heavy armed mercenaries.
An antique set of armor and witcher swords, but of solid basis, were available as quick replacement.
As well, Geralt took his earlier in Kaer Morhen deposited Crowns reserve into his pockets.

Anyways, Geralt is searching for Yennefer, his fatherly friend Vesemir at his side. 
They found out she is underways through war shattered regions.
Lately the battlefields of Temeria ...

In the upcoming adventures, the Witcher is anew challenged to prove his swift learning capability.
And with what is before him, he might have to go some unusual ways to get things done.
The lore friendly tweaks story shall help him ...

More than the lore way to play The Witcher 3

I.  I N T R O D U C T I O N

Lore Friendly Tweaks supports like no other the opportunity to play a lore-friendly Geralt in the witcher game universe. It's a major overhaul mod that improves the gameplay immensely and this in a unique style and atmosphere.

At the start of the plot our witcher does not carry the common quality gear but the master quality, as well as that he is not a beginner along vanilla's RPG rookie balancing.

An initial focus of the mod is to realise a way harder economical life for Geralt in wartimes of the Wild Hunt phase.
On the other side, Geralt gets rewarded with a lot knowledges. This mostly plot related, simulating that he remembers lost abilities during experiences in a more believable way, as well as receives plausible items from characters along his adventures.

The modification makes true what lore background as common base, former title consideration and especially The Witcher 3 world and atmosphere design suggests, but wasn't realised in the vanilla gameplay.
