My heart would melt into a pot of fanboyish goo.
Like that day in that giant quest.

There has been some time since I lastly played the game, but I think what you say it is mentioned somewhere, or at least you reach to this conclusion from the context in one of Letho's and/or Ioverth's discussions.

KNEEL BEFORE SOD!

What I find more curious is Iorveth being unaware this was being done. Now of course fast communication would be problematic, but still. I am guessing the Scoa'Tael that sent Letho to Iorveth were wiped out by the former and Serrit and Auckes.

Why do you think there were any Scoa'Tael with Letho before Iorweth? May be Letho learned that Iorweth was near Flotsam from some human contacts, like town guard or peasants who saw Iorweth in the forest, and then found his lair as we saw in a cut-scene? It wouldn't be such a mystery where Iorweth was. As I remember Sile wanted elves to help Letho to avoid being captured after he assassinated Demovend. I don't really remember about Scoa'Tael involved into Demovend assassination.
For Letho his assossiation with Scoa'Tael were much more useful - he used them to kill Foltest and, more importantly, as a cover - after Letho went off script and started to kill off other kings, sorceresses wouldn't guess a nilfgaardian involvement if the likely proximate cause of Foltest's assassination was at hand. May be I am wrong, or don't remember?
Doomed are those who take lunacy for prophecy, and carcasses for holy arses.

Because he said so. Yes the Scoia'Tael were not involved in Demavend's assassination, but took Letho in after it. And through them, as he said, he found Iorveth.

The only reason I don't side with Radovid in Roche path is because of how silly Roche looks afterward. It's like Radovid said "Okay jump in this vat of red dye" it's really weird.
They could have just made Roche where some generic soldiers uniform and ditch the hat. We could have had a funny scene where Geralt doesn't recognize Roche without his hat "Damnit Geralt this isn't the time to be joking around".

Any intention on perchance writing of the Temerian protectorates and / or the kingdom as a whole any time in the near future?

I could do it eventually, but part 6 is going to be centered around political theory and will be a holistic view.

I disagree that Philippa was pretending to be a lesbian. The towns people weren't that interested in their lebomancy. In the dungeon talking to Geralt she was obviously romancing over Saskia.
"In spite of all of this, she seems unchanged. She maintained her charm, her honor."
That's not the exact quote, I know, mostly what I remember. I think she wanted to rule the kingdoms with Saskia as her lover.

What I said is that she deliberately made public her inclinations, and we do hear from several banters people being interested in her sexual escapades.
