Fournival is an NPC in Dragon's Dogma.


Fournival Frescobaldi is a nobleman in Dragon's Dogma. He is the father of Symone and the defendant during the quest "Trials and Tribulations."

A shrewd businessman, he is a wealthy and magnanimous man with a high-class bearing. Due to his economic influence, he counts many important NPCs as friends, such as Ser Daerio of the northern watch and the Chamberlain of the Gran Soren Cathedral.

Some authorities, however, suspect some of his profit is acquired from activities that are less than legal. Even so, he seems to have had positive influence on the growth and maintenance of Gransys's economy, leaving the Arisen with an interesting moral dilemma should they involve themselves with his trial.


  • In the morning he can be found in his house, Fournival Manor in the Noble Quarter. In the afternoon he travels towards The Black Cat, taking the road past the Grand Cathedral and taking a left before the Inn. Before he leaves he talks to Symone outside his house who can be seen waving him away as he leaves. If Symone is standing outside the house, Fournival is either en route to The Black Cat or already there. In the evening he travels back to his house where he will stay for the remainder of the day.
  • Once the quest; Escort Duty becomes available he will be at his house as well talking to Symone downstairs.


Fournival sells unlimited quantities of Conqueror's Periapts, Tagilus's Miracles, Maker's Fingers, and other "rarities". Be sure Fournival is exonerated during Trials and Tribulations to have continued unlimited access to these items.

If found innocent during Trials and Tribulations, Fournival will reduce the prices of his items considerably, selling Ferrystones for 9,000 Gold each (up to three at a time). He will also begin selling the Magnanimous Cloak, a cloak which partially heals the entire party whenever the wearer consumes a curative.

Every 8 days, he restocks his inventory of Wakestone Shards and Ferrystones.

  • "Any rarities to sell? I'll pay you handsomely."
  • "You've met with His Grace?  My, you're a lucky one."
  • "Gran Soren has seen its share of Arisen, most of them coarse as a common thief."
  • "It's a rare thing to find one whose feats earn the Duke's good graces."


  • After acquiting Fournival from the charges in Trials and Tribulations, he offers a 10% discount on all his items.
  • Post game, Fournival Manor is inaccessible once A Warm Welcome has been completed. To purchase items from Fournival, wait until afternoon (game time) when he heads towards The Black Cat. Alternately, an Arisen with Vortex Trail (or any similar skill) can "occupy" the guards and prevent Fournival from running away. 
  • Another way to easily access him post game, is to max his affinity before The Final Battle (Pre-Game). He will then live in Cassardis (Post- Game). This method may not be favorable if one objects to Fournival being their love interest.
  • Fournival will purchase items with 'A rarity' in the description for 20% more gold than other merchants.
