Delicate Negotiations is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Unlocked upon completion of Shadows over Denerim and Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts. It is confirmed that it may take some time for the war table operation to appear, that is, it won't always be triggered right after completion of Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts.

Operation text Edit

If Alistair is King of Ferelden, and Celene is still Empress:

Inquisitor,

Here's the thing: I don't even own a mask. Thus, when the Orlesian empress invites me to engage in "real peace talks," I get nervous. I don't know what Orlesians mean when they say that, but I hear it involves poison and dancing. Perhaps both at the same time. I'm told you know Empress Celene and she owes you for that whole 'saved your life' business. Considering you also helped save mine, perhaps the Inquisition could help make these talks happen?

King Alistair Theirin

If Alistair is King of Ferelden, and Gaspard is Emperor:

Inquisitor,

I'm told this Gaspard fellow getting onto the throne of Orlais is your doing. Are you aware of how he's rattled his sword at Ferelden for years now? Because that whole invasion worked so well last time, I suppose. I know Orlais is in no shape to be invading any time soon, but I'm hoping your influence with the man could help bring about some peace talks. Considering my dancing skills, it would take the Inquisition's presence to keep me from starting a war by accident.

King Alistair Theirin

If Anora is sole ruler of Ferelden, and Celene is Empress:

My Lord/Lady Inquisitor,

After your recent help with the Venatori, I'm hopeful that the Inquisition can assist with another matter. With peace restored in Orlais, I wish to engage in new talks with Empress Celene. We are not on friendly terms, for reasons I'll not disclose, and while peace between our nations is in everyone's best interest, the situation remains delicate. The empress owes you, and thus you could facilitate these talks in a way no one else could.

I await your response,

Queen Anora Theirin

If Anora is sole ruler of Ferelden, and Gaspard is Emperor:

My Lord/Lady Inquisitor,

After your recent help with the Venatori, I'm hopeful that the Inquisition can assist with another matter. Grand Duke Gaspard is to assume the Orlesian throne, and in the past he has threatened to invade Ferelden. While his nation is currently in no state to do so, it does make us nervous, and I would like to engage the man in talks. Your people know him, and he owes you. Peace between our nations is in everyone's best interests, and thus, I am hopeful that the Inquisition can help make this happen.

I await your response,

Queen Anora Theirin

Results Edit

Truce between Celene, Gaspard and Briala or Celene rules with Briala after Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts. Alistair is King of Ferelden:

The talks between Ferelden and Orlais took place in Jader, and it... was not easy to keep matters from spiraling out of control. King Alistair is no diplomat, after all, and had little patience for the endless fanfare. Thankfully, the Orlesians are uninterested in more war, and we were able to smooth the way toward an eventual peace treaty. The King sent along a sword that once belonged to the Ferelden hero King Calenhad, as thanks for what the Inquisition helped create.

Celene rules Orlais, reunited with Briala during Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts, or Gaspard is made Emperor. Anora is the sole ruler of Ferelden:

The talks between Ferelden and Orlais took place in Jader and went off more or less without incident. Queen Anora is a skilled diplomat, after all, and it was clear that the Orlesians were not interested in more war. This is only the first such meeting, but we've paved the way for a peace treaty. Queen Anora sent her thanks, along with a sword that is said to have belonged to the Ferelden hero King Calenhad. According to her, it is a symbol of her appreciation for the Inquisition's efforts.
