The Fallow Mire is a rainy bog located in the southern part of Ferelden.

Background Edit

South of the Hinterlands, the land is wet and miserable, subject to seemingly endless storms. Villagers have tried to carve out a meagre existence in the Fallow Mire, but their lives are under constant threat by a tidal wave of undead rising from the murky waters flooding much of the region.

Involvement Edit

The Avvars have captured a group of Inquisition soldiers in Lost Souls hoping to meet the Inquisitor for aggressive negotiations.

  • The Fallow Mire is the only area where a scout-related War Table operation is available to all advisors.
  • Despite the name, Hargrave Keep is not a keep that can be taken in order to fulfill war table or Forward Scouts prerequisites.
  • The summon undead effect from going into the water only holds for the controlled character. Other characters that wander into the water from milling about do not generate the effect.
  • Mounts are disabled in the entire region.
