Dice Poker: The Professional This Dice Poker quest will initiate once Geralt beats 4 novice players.
You are Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster-hunter known as a Witcher. This also means you're a super-human, unaging, sterile mutant. A freak. A relic of bygone times. You're also dead.

The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: Dice Poker, in the initial version, was a cakewalk, with the AI often rerolling excellent scores or not rerolling absolute stinkers.
