So, just how do I get this Golden Idol thingy, then?

I heard you had to do the escort quest, so I did it, and the girl just gave me a golden egg, which I assumed was the Idol, but the weapon bloke wouldn't accept it.

I think its because there were other quests you had to complete as well and then you get it though I can't be for certain.

Easy. Just give her an offer to throw you the idol and you'll throw her "the whip". :) j/k

when you follow her if she hides you need to find
her fast.. if she wants water give her some
try not to upset her
you get the egg i think if you do good
you get the idol if you do perfect

Cheers, that's pretty helpful. Thing is, I did everything perfectly, except annoying her, and she only gave me an empty flask.
Let's hope the third time's the charm.

Oh great, I had no idea it was that quest. I got the golden egg. So is that it for this playthrough? I have to wait til NG+ to try again?

There are several threads for this already but;

Make sure you follow her as soon as she leaves the house and stick close, but not too close - if she comments about being too close or having to wait for you, reload because you won't be getting the idol.

She runs for a little bit right after leaving her house, so make sure you keep up but when she trips DO NOT help her up. You can't touch her.

Follow her around town until she suggests hide and seek. She'll either be behind the ale house or the apothecary.

Follow again until she wants a drink. Buy her a flask of water from the apothecary or give her one of yours. She'll suggest a race; if you've done everything right until this point then beating her will get you the golden egg and letting her win will get you the golden idol.

You have to speak to her again back at her house after the quest to get your prize.

Make sure you got a checkpoint save at the inn or rift stone before you start so if you mess up you can just reload the last checkpoint and try again.

I just got the game and I'm wondering what the golded idol does? I did a search and found nothing as far as what it's for. Could someone let me know?

You get quests from shopkeepers asking for them and they upgrade their inventory when you give them to them. The level of items depends on if you give them bronze, silver or gold idols. You can't give them a better idol later so you have to choose wisely and they will spot forgeries.

correction, when she hides she is in 1 of 2 places, behind the alehouse or in the Inn next to the fireplace.
