The Snoozing Adventurer is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II.


Important NPCs

  • A Snoozing Adventurer
  • A Talking Chest.


The Snoozing Adventurer Objectives

  1. Talk to the Sleeping Adventurer
  2. Talk to the Chest
  3. Talk to the Adventurer and pretend to be his mother to get "The Word".


The Snoozing Adventurer Walkthrough

On the second floor of Black Bull Tavern (X:307 Y:134), there is a sleeping adventurer. If you try to open the chest that's in front of him, it will prompt you for a password. None of the options will work at this time.

If you talk to the sleeping adventurer after attempting to open the chest and pretend to be his mother, he will accidentally reveal the password, which is "The Word". Talk to the chest again and give it the password, and the quest will close with the rewards being whatever loot you find in the chest.

Alternatively, you can simply destroy the chest, which will yield the same loot and also close the quest this way.

Warning: If you decide to lockpick the chest instead, it will successfully unlock the chest, but the quest will glitch and fail to close. You will need to destroy the chest in order to close the quest if you do it this way.


Tips & Tricks

  • If you already have the Jester tag on a character, "The Word" will already be available for you to open the chest with.

      Wrong guys. Works fine in the definitive edition, you soft simps don't know how to carry a conversation. Speak to the snoozing guy. then chest (after attempting to OPEN the chest). Then pretend to be his mother. Then talk to the chest

      And voila!

        Definitive edition, never got the option to pretend to be the mother, just lock-picked the chest instead and it closed the quest with experience reward.

          Definitive edition, lock picking closes the quest successfully. I did not even notice the chest talks. I went straight to the sleeping dude and then straight into lock picking

              If you speak to the chest with Lohse or any character who have the jester tag, you make a joke and open the chest without needing to know the password.

                I absolutely love how the chest has its own personality. The more you guess, the more it insults you. Genius!

                  funny thing if you have a villain perk you can kill him with a pillow and talk to his spirit, but there is nothing new to the quest

                    If you try to use password, it only gives you some low-value items. Attack it, and you will get those items plus some blue equipment.

                      You have to speak once with the Strongbox "yes, speak with the strongbox", it will unlock a new conversation with the sleeping man; Pretend to be his mother and he will speak the magic word "the word"
