Love has a Price Walkthrough

A man named Lovirk at Driftwood tavern promises you something exotic worth trying. If you convince him via speech check or tell him a good joke about talking dogs via the Jester-tagged dialogue options, he will waive the initial fee. You will gain 3000XP for this. After he reveals his non-negotiable exotic fee of 100 gold, he will give you the key to a suite on the 2nd floor.

Use the character and enter the suite alone, then talk to the lizard and spend a night there. You will receive 6000XP. If you refuse the prostitute, you will receive 3000XP and have to try again with another character. The next morning, some thugs will suddenly show up while you are naked, demanding money. If you are Ifan ben-Mezd, the thugs will recognize you and leave. Otherwise, you will have to pay them or fight (your gear is in the burgled backpack on a table next to the bed. If you are playing as the Red Prince, then the lizard you meet will turn into the Red Princess instead. (if you are undead, the prostitute will fight with you.)

Head back down and confront Lovrik, and he will claim he did all these for his daughter. If you ask the cook, you will learn that he's lying, and you will find that he fled while you weren't there. If the cook is dead, then you won't find anything and the quest can't proceed until you kill him. Killing him grants no XP but he has a significant amount of gold on his corpse. If you did kill the thugs and confront Lovrik, you can also spare his life and the quest will conclude rewarding you a final 3000XP. If you believe he has a daughter, Livy will flee concluding the quest but granting no additional XP.



Tips & Tricks

  • Swap the key to the suite to a party member that isn't spending the night. This way you'll be able to send in your party at the start of the fight.
  • You gain an extra 3000XP if a party member changes their mind about spending the night with Zharah. This will upset the lizard meaning you will have to pay 100 gold to Lovrick again to try again with a new party member. The 3000XP gained only occurs once. You do recieve the normal 6000XP if you chose to sleep with her with another party member.

      Warning! If you are using Bull Horns. It will become unequipped when you sleep with the prostitute; very funny programmer. Wish I had realized before I showed my undead wiener to the Magisters on the floor below

        You can get "super lucky" for 50 turns if you...
        Give all your gear to a companion.
        Sleep with the lizard.
        When you wake up, don't fight.
        Sleep with the lizard again.

          Found away to do this in a pretty "lore-friendly" way.

          Slept with prostitute, got mugged by bandits, didn't fight as I couldn't beat them naked. Talked to Lovrik, learned Lohar would have my gear. Went to Lohar, refused to give me gear.

          Thereafter simply used three characters to talk to everyone in Lohars room and keep their lines of sight away from the backpack, used the fourth character (with high sneaking) to steal the backpack and leave the room then hiding in a corner outside. Kept the character with the backpack hidden while everyone cried "burglery!" and searched the rest of my crew, before teleporting everyone out to the waypoint.

          Note: Lore friendly is simply a point of personal taste, I was unaware I was going to get mugged and alas they got the drop on me. Not having prepared for the fight they took my gear, and I felt going back and preparing for the fight would be "cheating", as I was obviously fooled.

            You can get the lizard to side with you if you aren't undead and you pick the right dialogue options (I managed this by playing hard to get.) If the narration at the end says "his world..." instead of "your world..." he will tell Gill he's fallen for you, hand you a knife, and fight with you. He's wimpy as hell though, took me like 4 tries to get him through it alive

              About the fight with thugs , you can just go downstairs and immediately go back up this way you will see only 1 pyromancer takes your bag and start runing you can hit her and enter combat then bring your companions . {Carefull tho she runs like sonic if you miss her she gets even faster at downstairs and soon perishes with your items) Tried couple times you wil not have any problems if you dont missclick. (You shouldn't get along with prostitute otherwise she joins fight and very likely to die also its not going to be only 1 pyro if she joins because that way combat doesn't end when you go downstairs)

                I did this quest with the red prince as my avatar (and only character). After sleeping with with the lizard prostitute, you wake up and see sadha sleeping beside you. There is some dialog like "who are you" and "come and find me". No bandits, no robbery. Actually, I thought it was pretty cool and it fitted the story perfectly. I thought something similar would happen to other characters (like fane's wife or something), but it seems to be a quest made for the red prince.

                  So after several tries I used the pyramids to teleport other team members and killed robbers, slept again with the prostitute, then killed her, then killed Lovrik. I confess, that felt really good.

                    You get the max XP by: 1) Turning her down with one character, 2) Say yes yes yes! with another character that's not the Red Lizard (preferably Fane, but any will do) so that you can fight the thugs. The thugs give good XP. It's not a very easy fight though.

                      Killing Lovrik gave me 4 gold pieces. So I don’t know about the whole “Significant amount of gold on hos corpse”.

                        I used the red prince to sleep with Zharah, yet she didn't turn into the red priestess and I was still attacked by the bandits.

                        Does anyone know how to fix this, or what conditions you need? I loaded a save from like...10 hours ago when I first entered Driftwood and was able to get the red priestess, but there's no way I'm going back that far.

                          any1 else has the problem that after u slept as the red prince with the prostitute, the quest does not proceed? i mean i woke up naked but there were no thiefs and my items were in my inventory. after that the prostitute ( red princess ) teleported away. i run down to lovrick and talked to him. the only options were : RED PRINCE - where this red princess is and something else which was pretty unnecessary. after that lovrick allways wish me good luck or something when i talk to him. do i have to find mordus first (in Shadow over Driftwood quest) first to proceed? or is this bugged

                            I got 8000xp as Fane in human form when sleeping with the lizard, she did not turn hostile - instead sided with me.

                              Man this quest is so stupid. Made the deal, went upstairs. Had the bandit scenario. Felt like setting up against the bandits using Red Prince (reloaded), discovered the Red Princess event and decided to roll with it. I believe I had an option ONLY ONCE with my characters to accuse and blame him, but I decided to let it slide.

                              Quest remained open. Thought it had to do with finding the Red Princess. Now discover (after dealing with half the continent) that I cannot get a real completion.
                              Decided to whack Lovrik, by sneak attacking him I made the entire bar hostile... by Battle Stomping him nobody cared.

                              Should've just gone with bandit scenario (the Red Princess doesn't impact Red Prince quest in the slightest) for max loot and xp and should've rekt Lovrik where he stood the minute I went downstairs....

                                I slept with her as the Red Prince, and when I woke up nothing happened. No bandits showed up. I still had all my stuff and I just walked away.
                                I was in a multiplayer game with 3 friends. Maybe that has something to do with it?

                                  So this is something unusual: did the quest-as a Red Prince i let the thugs take my backpack-spared Lovrik's life-went to see Lohar-backpack indeed is on the table item).When i try to pick it up Lohar and his crew react and it ends with fight.

                                    If you have an animal following your character, like Peeper, then Zharah will tell you to come back alone.

                                      If you kill him and then immediately go back upstairs and back down, EVERY party member will say together: "That lying waiter seems to have legged it". So weird

                                        This quest is bugged. Whether you kill Lovrik or let him go, it will either say "I decided not to press matters further with Lovrik" or "The lying coward has fled". However, even when you let him go, when you exit the tavern and re-enter, someone in the party will always say "That lying coward seems to have legged it." I guess this SORT OF makes sense that he would be scared and run off even if you decided not to press things.

                                          For Lovrik, if you choose "Kill him anyway" and then you walk out of the tavern, the quest will complete and wrongly say he lied and fled.

                                            This guide is terrible.

                                            If you threaten Lorvik (but not kill him) to give up the location you get 3k XP - then go to Lothar and simply pick up your gear from the table. On leaving the area you get 36.5k XP (level 10) for completing it.

                                            Which is far more than simply killing everyone.

                                              If you sleep with the lady, but then run away from the fight, the bag of your items maybe gone, as it was for me.

                                              Had to reload to get them back.

                                                Flowered the lizard with undead and she sided me. Somehow she die faster than hiding on a side.
                                                Another attempt she survived and my undead character flowered her again.
