The poster was written by Arl Howe's man, Paedan, in an attempt to root out supporters of the Grey Wardens. It reads, "Don't believe the lies! Friends of the Grey Wardens assemble. The hidden pearl holds the key to resistance. The griffons will rise again."Reading the poster is necessary to proceed in the first test in the Trial of the Crows side quest. The hidden pearl refers to the Pearl in Denerim, while The griffons will rise again is the password required to access the locked back room within The Pearl where Paedan is waiting.
