The Execution is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II. Coming across a paladin about to be executed for her supposed crimes, you might just be able to save her. Would you do so? If so, would you succeed, or would you fail?
- Interrupt the execution.
- Pass a speech check and save Paladin DeSelby.
Upon entering the courtyard of the Magister Barracks, you will be approached by a woman who will frantically beg you to save her wife - a Paladin who is about to be executed by her own for disobeying orders.
Approach Lord Kemm, and attempt to persuade him to spare Paladin DeSelby. You will have to pass a particularly difficult speech check, requiring about 5 persuasion points, at least for the intelligence and wits speech check. The other speech checks may require possibly higher persuasion points. If you fail the first speech check, you can still pass the second speech check and get him to spare Paladin DeSelby. Otherwise, he will execute her if you fail the second speech check.
In any case, if you fail, Lord Kemm will execute the paladin and the quest ends. If you succeed, you will gain 38,800XP and the woman will give you a choice of loot reward for saving her wife. The quest is complete at this point.
Later, you can also meet the paladin at the magister prison, where she will give you the quest, The Vault of Linder Kemm, if you do not already have it.
- 38,800XP and a choice of loot reward for saving Paladin DeSelby.
