Mightier than the Sword is a side quest in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Completing it will teach Henry how to read books. He can learn about the scribe in Uzhitz from the apothecary or the bailiff in Rattay.


They say the pen is mightier than the sword. Maybe it's time I learned to read.
I managed the first reading lesson and even my first test. I read a simple book the Scribe gave me.
The actual reading is sometimes the easiest part. What's more difficult is understanding the point of the text, which the Scribe says I managed well.
The next test was in reading Latin, which I speak as well as the average goose, but at least I could have a go at deciphering the letters. I didn't need to understand the text, just remember the words I read.
