Notes Edit

  • The first time Hawke visits Gallows with Fenris in the party, a dialogue scene begins that ends with Rivalry small Fenris: rivalry (+15), Rivalry small (+5), or Friendship small Fenris: friendship (+5) depending on dialogue choices. (See Fenris/Approval.) If Anders is also in the party, it results in Rivalry small Anders: rivalry (+5), or Friendship small Anders: friendship (+5) depending on dialogue choices (See Anders/Approval.)

Bugs Edit

  • Sometimes Olivia's letter doesn't drop, especially if a mage has the Death Syphon ability enabled. Her corpse may immediately disappear after the mage gains vitality from it, leaving nothing behind. It may happen without a mage too. This can be fixed by either reloading a previous save, or using this mod to add the letter manually. The letter's item ID code is mag111im_thrask_letter. Upon using the console command, the letter is added as a codex entry and the quest appears in Hawke's secondary quests list.
