And a Curse, and Love, and Betrayal) is one of the greatest fan adventures created for any installment of the Witcher series – it is enough for about 10-12 hours of fun. The whole thing is highly non-linear, and offers a lot of new music.

Geralt comes to a small village, where he undertakes two contracts – a young girl wants us to free her fiancée from a curse, and the head of the village hires us to clear the local gold mine of monsters.

Birth, & Virgins

Birth, & Virgins, on the other hand, is a mod that focuses mainly on story and difficult moral choices, rather than combat. This project is also highly non-linear, and the plot revolves around the priestess of the Eternal Fire, who didn't comply with the requirements of basic hygiene.

Entrapped

In turn, Entrapped is the second mod from The Bards group known from And a Curse, and Love, and Betrayal. This adventure is much shorter but just as powerful. The story begins when Geralt decides to spend the night in a sleepy village. It quickly turns out that this decision can cost him with his life.

Masquerade

If you're going to play only a single adventure for the first Witcher, make sure it's Masquerade. This is a crime story that pivots on a mysterious murder, and our task is to identify the culprit. The action takes place in the Outskirts. We come across a caravan from Vengerberg, full of suspicious merchants and coarse dwarves, as well as a Doppler, which the locals despise – but does that mean that it's guilty of murder?

Medical Problems

In the second one, our task is to save Vesemir and Eskel, both of whom are seriously ill. Witchers are supposedly immune to all diseases, but this one was created using the stolen mutagen secrets.

Merry Witchmas

This is one of the biggest fan adventures to the first Witcher, as it lasts for about 3 hours. The story begins when Geralt arrives in Vizima. He intends to make a coin before heading to spend the winter in Kaer Morhen, but the seemingly simple assignment turns out to be much more complicated than it initially seemed.

The mod offers a large variety of challenges and is very polished, and an additional attraction is the reworked Wyzima, which we can admire in a wintery setting.

The Witcher 3 cannot compete with Gothic or the Elder Scrolls series in terms of the quantity and number of the available mods, but this does not mean that we are not able to make our encounters with the White Wolf more enjoyable with certain mods.
