The Dimir farm is not an average farm. The place is void of livestock but still producing food. The owners have no doubt found an alternative source of meat, and the operation should be investigated.



Silviu Dimir (chopping up a ghoul on the table, looks up and sees you) Mami. Mami! MAMI!
Silviu Dimir Intrus! Uzurpator!
Olga Dimir Shhh! Lasa-ne în pace!
Olga Dimir What do you want? We are just poor farmers. We have broken no laws.
Olga Dimir (looking at the ghoul on the table) They are not human.
Silviu Dimir They make good sausage.
Olga Dimir smacks Silviu in the back of the head
Silviu Dimir Ow! Mami! That hurt!
Olga Dimir We do not speak of sausages in front of strangers.
Olga Dimir My boy hunts strigoi and shapeshifters, same as you.
Silviu Dimir No as tasty as the Blajini, or the forest faeries, or the...
Olga Dimir The Padurii do make an excellent stew... and why let it all go to waste?
Olga Dimir And so? What makes us different from you?
Olga Dimir We are on the same side in this war. It is humans against the rest of them, the un-humans. The lesser species.
Olga Dimir (you shake your head no) Do not judge us! Do not be so sanctimonious! The only difference between us is that they call you "hero" and they call use "murderers."
Olga Dimir Hypocrites! We do their dirty work and they shake their heads, but they still look the other way and allow us to...
Silviu Dimir Kill. I like to kill. To feel the soft flesh tearing, the warm blood running...
Olga Dimir Silviu! Not in front of strangers.
Silviu Dimir S...sorry, Mami.
Olga Dimir You have been a bad boy. Go do your work. Go!
Olga Dimir You should be thanking us. We are helping, making things easier for all of you.
Olga Dimir Oh, it is so easy to call us evil, to call us monsters...
Olga Dimir But you cannot do anything about it. You will not. Your leaders will not.
Olga Dimir You cannot wash your hands of us. You need us. Your world needs us! To do what you cannot do!
Olga Dimir (as you walk off) You need us!

Journal Entries

  • Tier 1: The Dimirs are killing ghouls and magical species to maintain meat production. This could be a dilemma. Killing ghouls is a good thing. Grinding them up and serving their meat in sausages is a different matter altogether.
    • Learn how the Dimirs run their farm.
    • Find and take the sedative used on the ghouls
    • Destroy the Dimirs' chainsaw
    • Destroy the meat grinder
    • Destroy the power generator
  • Tier 2: With most of the Dimirs' equipment destroyed, the production should slow down. Removing some of the meat supply should slow it down further.
    • Destroy pig totems (0/5)
    • Put sedatives in the troughs (0/3)
    • Find the barn where they keep the bait
  • Tier 3: The farm has been cleaned out and the equipment destroyed. Go find ghouls nearby and kill them to destroy the Dimirs' future meat source.
    • Kill Feral Cankermouths (0/10)
    • Kill Totemic Cankermouths (0/4)
  • Tier 4: The canyons are filled with ghouls ready for the slaughter. It's almost as if they're being driven and held there on purpose. Getting rid of their leader is the best way to break them up.
    • Kill the ghoul leader




Carrion feeding off the carrion feeders. You see the necessity of our mission writ here in offal and refuse. In a sick society, only the slaughterhouse owner is content.

You have stopped the meat machine, for now, but the disease is already spread. Strange appetites have been whetted. What was forbidden becomes merely perverse, and then accepted.

It is said that the ghouls once were as elevated as mankind. It is said they eat the dead in the hopes of regaining what was lost to them, though they only become more degenerate and obese.


Ugh, I can almost smell that hole from here. Way to put me off my protein shake.

Look, if I'm super brutally honest, and I always am, they'd have to be cutting up unicorns out there for me to get on the PETA train. Let's fact it - a stinking abattoir of misery isn't the worst thing you've ever seen. I know, I read some of your reports.

In this case, those ghouls actually are going to mince themselves, so all you need to do is clean under your fingernails and get on with your assignment.

Fun fact: like chicken.



And here I was thinking health and safety regulations could not take any sharper a nosedive. I agree that common decency dictates this squalid little operation should be terminated. Alas, we have an ongoing war to consider.

We are not in the business of affording protection to ghouls. These creatures have a long history of gnawing at the bones of human society - there's an irony in the situation somewhere.

Don't think of it as turning a blind eye, more holding your nose and marching onwards. Also, I recommend politely declining any meat dishes until you return to the city.

Tier 3/4

The area marked on the map looks like you need to backtrack to get to it, but continue through the shed to get to the correct area. There are numerous ghouls in the area on the other side of the map, and they will count even if they are outside the marked area as long as they are the correct kind. Note that there are also Cankermouth Ghouls in the area which are not Feral or Totemic and so don't count.

Tier 4/4

  • Kill the ghoul leader
