“Whatever we were before, we are now the Inquisition.” — The Inquisitor

Following their exodus from Haven, the Inquisition receive reports of the appearance of a Fade rift beneath the Crestwood lake. As a result, demons and the undead plague the area. The region is also troubled by a dragon that is ravaging its livestock and a group of highwaymen that have taken over Caer Bronach and prowl the surrounding roads.

It is also the site at which Hawke's Grey Warden informant has taken refuge.

Unique Shield
A good and colorful item for those who have hearty constitutions, this shield formed when a dragon shed her scales and fragments wafted on the soft and flavorful breeze into a dairy farm. Wielding it, Ser Jacques de Monterey was unstoppable until he fought par méchant, or dishonorably. His wistful last words as he lay full of holes: It was he who had failed, not the shield.
