Shelyn's Chosen is a quest in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Sometimes the past catches up to us, despite our best efforts to keep as far ahead of it as possible. Valerie once left the Order of the Eternal Rose, and rejected the goddess of beauty forever. But the followers of Shelyn wouldn't so easily say goodbye to the reigning beauty of Brevoy...

Show the letter to Valerie[edit | edit source]

  • A message from Fredero Sinnet was delivered to us. The paladin of Shelyn insists that the baron{ess} frees Valerie from any responsibilities and allows her to return to the service of Shelyn. I wonder what Valerie thinks of this...

Meet Fredero Sinnet with valerie[edit | edit source]

  • Valerie is determined to meet with her former mentor and break with her past for good. Of course, we couldn't let her face this trial alone! Fredero Sinnet is waiting for us at the [sic] Oleg's Trading Post.

Act as second at Valerie and Fredero's duel[edit | edit source]

  • In the blink of an eye, Fredero, insulted by some ill-conceived words about Shelyn, challenged Valerie to a duel! The baron/baroness will act as her second – and I wouldn't be myself if I didn't go along to pen a stunning description for the fiery event!

Talk to Valerie at the capital[edit | edit source]

  • The duel is over, and Valerie... Oh, poor Valerie! Her poor face! I hope once we're back at the capital, she will find a way to heal that terrible gash!

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • After receiving Fredero Sinnet's letter, speak with Valerie. She will be outraged that her order is still pursuing her, and demands to confront Fredero in person.
  • Once the party arrives at Oleg's Trading Post, the player should create a hard save and Valerie should be buffed up as much as possible. Any equipment that can be borrowed from other characters should be used to make her as powerful as possible.
  • Speaking with Fredero will give the player an opportunity to learn more about Valerie than she may be willing to share about herself, which she is not pleased by. The player may encourage or attempt to talk Valerie out of violence, but Fredero will challenge her to a duel no matter what.
  • Fredero is an extremely competent combatant with a high AC, high attack bonus, the ability to use Sunder Armor, and is able to heal himself several times throughout the fight. Even with all of the buffs and equipment possible, Valerie is likely to be under leveled and outclassed compared to Fredero, so if winning the duel is important then there may be a fair amount of reloading in the future.
  • If the Valerie wins the duel, the player may either honor the terms of the duel and Fredero and his entourage will leave without a fuss, or the player can spur Valerie to end things once and for all, in which case she will kill Fredero and his guards will attack the party. If Fredero is left alive after the duel, he will vouch for Valerie much later during Judgment of the Gods.
  • If Fredero wins he will end the duel honorably, but officially declare that Valerie no longer has a place in the ranks of Shelyn's paladins, and then leaves.
  • Regardless of how the duel goes, a terrible wound will appear across Valerie's face, even if she went untouched during the fight. Her character portrait is even updated to reflect the scar. Valerie will hardly react to the wound, and will wait until the player returns to Tuskdale and speaks with her to make any comment.
  • The quest will conclude after speaking with Valerie about the outcome of her duel with Fredero. She will continue to ignore her wound, claiming that she can visit a priest or alchemist at any point to have something done about it.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

Valerie met her former mentor Fredero Sinnet and flatly declined his proposal that she return to the ranks of Shelyn's followers. I hope Valerie's troubles end here... if, of course, she truly isn't bothered by the terrible gash on her wonderful face!
