Money for Old Rope is a side quest in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It becomes available during the quest All that Glisters.

Description[edit | edit source]

There's to be an execution in Rattay - without Hermann, the Rattay Executioner.
In order to help Hermann, I first had to find out at the Bailiff's what crimes the reprobates had been sentenced to death for. And it turned out they were a fine pack of scoundrels!
Peter of Dauba is a multiple murderer, but he's also a nobleman.
Frost Heralt is a beast of a man who enjoys making others suffer.
Georg Weiss is a cold-blooded, multiple murderer.
Once I knew the crimes, I could find out the appropriate punishments from the Black Chronicle.
So far so good. Now I must go to Hermann and ask his advice about how to best sabotage the executions.
I gave some attention to the executioner's sword and it's certainly far from sharp. Beheading a condemned man with one blow of a sword is the executioner's pride, but with this blunt thing he'd hardly chop the head off a chicken.
I managed to poison the instruments of torture, so the convict will die quickly and the crowd will be deprived of their entertainment, which won't endear the executioner to them.
There's a rule that if the executioner fails to kill a condemned man by hanging at the first attempt, he has to let him go. And that would make the Kuttenberg executioner very unpopular. So I switched his rope for an old one that certainly wouldn't bear the weight of a grown man.
That was something! The Rattay folk will never forget this execution.
Executioner Hermann was delighted with the outcome of the sabotaged executions, and I was glad I could help him.
