Stages of "Paperchase" quest
1. Go to the Cianfanelli Bank.
One day, an old acquaintance ran into Geralt and pulled him aside for a chat. He was a vineyard owner for whom Geralt had completed a contract some time ago. The man had been bereft of adequate coin at the time, but, determined to compensate Geralt fairly one day, he had set up a savings account in the witcher's name at the local bank. Now that years' worth of interest had accrued and Geralt had returned to the duchy, he needed only go to the bank and collect his due.
Entrance to the Cianfanelli Bank.
4. Ask in the archives about an A38 Permit.
The archives are downstairs.
5. Ask in records about an A38 Permit.
Records are upstairs. Bank Clerk will tell you that you need another form.
8. Sit and wait until the break ends.
Now you can play Gwent with another bank customer. He will tell you that you should be kind, be pleasant if you want to resolve your problem.
When the break is over go to the Window 1 clerk again. At some point give her flowers (option will be active if you have flowers in your inventory), give perfume (option will be active if you have perfume in your inventory) or say something nice.
Tell you the truth, I'm really just here to see you.
9. Convince Cianfanelli to pay you your coin.
You will tell him that you are hired by Her Enlightened Highness.
11. Retrieve your coin.
Check the safe deposit, it's empty!
Now you have to make a decision, wait one week or use the force.
11.1. Defeat the guards.
This stage will be active if you have decided to use the force. You will have to beat two guards.
11.1.2. Talk to Cianfanelli.
You will find him upstairs.
11.2. Wait a week and talk to Cianfanelli.
This stage will be active if you have decided to wait for your money.
After a long bout of trench warfare against the bank's bureaucracy, Geralt finally reached the bank's owner, Giacomo Cianfanelli. Unfortunately, Giacomo was suffering a small liquidity crisis in regards to Geralt's funds. Geralt decided to take a risk and wait a week, but only on condition that he would not have to procure any additional documents.
12. Quest completed.
If you used the force then you will get 200 gold.
The witcher's visit to Cianfanelli Bank ended in a very witcher-like fashion. Geralt pummeled the guards who tried to restrain him, fought his way to the owner and in clear, concise terms made it clear he would not tolerate any more delays. He collected as much coin as he could and ended up with the dubious honor of finding himself on the list of clients no longer welcome in the bank.
... or if you decided to wait one week for your money then you will receive 500 gold and the steel sword - The Reckoner.
Cianfanelli kept his word and not only gave the witcher his coin, but threw in a present as a bonus -- an old family heirloom. It seems the banker meant what his employees were forced to repeat ad nauseam: with him, the customer is always right and he looks after others' coin as if it were his own.
