Welcome to a world that knows no mercy — none is received, and none is given. Only physical and mental agility can keep you alive, though they are by no means a guarantor of life. You play the role of Geralt, an already legendary monster-slayer — but this, my friend, is not a gift, and is certainly not given lightly. “The Witcher” is an immense computer game. Within its realm, you will have to assume the burden of choice. And this burden of choice, as light as it may appear, is the very thing that will both permit you to wield influence over the fate of the world, as well as get you slain prematurely.

It's almost exactly a year since I released the first version of The Weird World of the Witcher and I've now decided that v. 2.0 will be the final version of this mod. Containing 10 characters and over 650 voiced dialogue lines, I feel like I've accomplished what I set out to do, fulfilled the potential of this mod. Now it's time do other stuff for a while - most of all, reducing my gaming backlog.

I hope that all of you who have downloaded my mod has enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed making these dialogues. I may do a similar mod for another game in the future, because I love making characters say weird things and there are far too few mods like this one. MadGangster's Malkavian Mod for Deus Ex 1 (my original inspiration) and my own mod are the only ones I know about.

Interesting game, to say the least. I haven't been able to play it thoroughly, so I can't make any solid opinion yet... I know it is based on some Polish medieval fantasy novel, but doesn't Geralt remind you of Drizzt?

Well, I have never heard of Drizzt, so I had to Google him...

As I predicted, Geralt appeared for the first time BEFORE Drizzt did. It was in 1986 in a short polish story, while according to Wiki R.A. Salvatore made his character in 1987 and published in 1990.

In addition Salvatore says: "I like to think of Drizzt as a cross between Daryth from 'Darkwalker on Moonshae' and Aragorn from 'The Lord of the Rings'."{Wiki} He indeed sets his stories into world of D&D, while Sapkowski's character and WHOLE WORLD are totally original. (Notice that elves aren't similar in any way to Tolkien's elves...)

I'd bet neither Salvatore nor Sapkowski were inspirated in each other's work, because in that time Poland was quite isolated from west like Czechoslovakia (me) and most of other countries on the east of us.

So PLEASE, do not compare Witcher to other fantasy worlds in a way of similarity of races, bestiary etc. It's not similar, because it wasn't ment to be...

If Sapkowski was in no small part inspired by Slavic mythology and legends, could his work be considered entirely original? Consequently, could Tolkien’s work be considered entirely original, or Jordan’s (may he rest in peace), which was obviously inspired by Celtic legends? I think not. In a way, only Sthepen R. Donaldson’s Thomas Covenant saga is truly original.

OK, I didn’t consider the short story you mentioned.

and now the full version of the question:

Stanisław Lem, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky and Zoran Živković (the most famous sci-fi and/or fantasy authors from “the lands behind the Iron Curtain”) and their works aside, but weren’t sci-fi and fantasy, being products of the decadent West, frowned upon by the comrades of the Communist Party of any “respectful” communist/socialist country?

Well, I was not speaking of any sort of plagiarism (if that is what you are implying) but rather of the fact that both Drizzt Do’Urden and Geralt could be considered outcasts in their respective worlds. One is a Drow, a member of a vicious and utterly evil race and even though he is a force of good, he is mistrusted or even openly hated by most of the people he meets; it is only later in the course of the novels that he finds some measure of acceptance. The other, being one of the witchers (who are sometimes considered mutants), is more often than not mistrusted even feared…

Regarding publishing and/or creation timeline, Drizzt’s character was created in 1987 if I remember correctly, and The Icewind Dale Trilogy was published between 1988 and 1990, whereas the first novel in the Wiedźmin saga was published in 1994…

A question:
Stanisław Lem, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky and Zoran Živković aside, but weren’t sci-fi and fantasy, being products of the decadent West, frowned upon by the comrades of the Communist Party of any “respectful” communist/socialist country?
