Arl Wulff travels to Denerim to participate in the Landsmeet. Prior to the Landsmeet itself, the Warden may talk to Wulff at the Gnawed Noble Tavern to learn about his plight. Like other nobles, he will recognize a Human Noble Warden as a Cousland. Regardless of what is said to him, the Arl will send the Warden away.

During the Landsmeet, he will vote in support the Warden if the latter mentions that the Blight is the true threat.

Dragon Age (tabletop RPG) Edit

Arl Wulff and his family feature in the quest "Where Eagles Lair" with Arl Wulff as a questgiver, requesting the players seek out and rescue his missing daughter Izot. With the proximity of Wulff's arling of West Hills to Avvar lands, Wulff has battled Avvar every winter in the Frostback Mountains. In spite of this, his daughter fell in love with an Avvar man, Azur Ar Brosna O Redhold, and ran away with him in order to elope. The couple were being accompanied to Azur's home of Redhold by a number of his friends; however, en route, they were attacked by a group of Avvar hunters. The hunters slew Azur's friends, beat him soundly, and kidnapped Izot. At the same time, darkspawn began to raid Avvar and West Hills lands, leaving the players with difficult choices about which crisis to resolve first. Wulff's eleven-year-old son Berchan also features in the quest.

If the Inquisitor recruits the Templars and Iron Bull, then a Venatori mage who is captured by Bull's Chargers during their investigation into the events that occurred at Redcliffe reveals that Arl Wulff played a large part in the rebel mages joining the Venatori due to mistakenly believing that the mages would be able to live peacefully in the Tevinter Imperium while allowing Ferelden to regain peace and stability, The Inquisitor can choose what to do with this information. They can send Josephine to inform him of exactly what his actions have caused, have Leliana feed him false information in hopes it reaches the Venatori, or send Cullen to have him tried and executed.[3]

Quotes Edit

  • "All of southern Ferelden covered by black clouds, the ground rotting beneath your feet, plagues and darkspawn raids going on until even the crows get sick of the smell of carrion."
