For the Fade version, see Blackmarsh Undying.

The Blackmarsh is a deserted marshland along the northeastern shores of Amaranthine.

Background Edit

The Blackmarsh is a gloomy, desolate place. All who travel the one lonely path between the trees are beset by an oppressive feeling of dread. Nothing stirs in the marsh, for even birds and beasts sense the foulness in the air and dare not stray too close.
The Blackmarsh was not always this way. Once, many years ago, there was a village, bustling with people. Boats and ships arrived daily at the small port. And then, one day, it all went away. The few brave souls who ventured into the marsh to discover the villagers' fate found burned ruins and no sign of life. As the years passed, sightings of strange creatures and eerie lights in the marsh fueled belief that the Blackmarsh was haunted, and that all who valued their lives would do well to stay away.[1]

Kristoff, a Grey Warden dispatched to Ferelden just after the Fifth Blight, came to investigate the Blackmarsh. While there he was murdered by the Mother's Disciple, the First. When the Warden-Commander came to search for Kristoff, they, along with the First, were trapped in the Fade.

The common name for canavaris, this herb actually has little to do with elves other than being commonly collected and traded to outsiders by the Dalish. It is the primary ingredient in many healing salves.

Use: Chewing elfroot restores a small amount of health, and those with skill can use elfroot to make more potent elixirs.
