Hard in Hightown 3: Varric's Revenge is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available once the Inquisitor completes Scout the Hinterlands. This is the first in a series of operations relating to Varric Tethras.

Operation text Edit


I need a favor. Actually, let’s call it a loan, since I’ll pay it back. I got a letter from my editor in Kirkwall today. She tells me that Hard in Hightown 3: The Re-Punchening appeared in print from an Antivan printer a couple weeks ago. I’ll give you a moment to contemplate the horror that is that title.

I had my contacts in the Merchants Guild look for the author a couple years back. The best they could find out after spending a couple hundred gold was that “Pyrral Bhelenforth” is a pen name. I could’ve told them that for free. You’ve got contacts with the Antivan print houses; maybe you could find out more than the guild.


Advisor suggestionsEdit

I could ask a friend in Antiva City to look into this matter, I suppose.

Leliana - 0:12:00 Edit

If this author has evaded the Merchants Guild, the Crows might be a better choice for investigating him.

Josephine Edit

My dear Josephine,

I have looked into the matter of your writer—that book, by the way, is truly dreadful and has been panned by every critic in Antiva. The publisher does not know the identity of the writer; they receive manuscripts by courier. I was able to track down the courier, however, who is receiving her packages from another courier out of Kirkwall.

Best of luck,
Catarina Vallesti

Leliana Edit

My dear Leliana,

Your author friend is truly a mystery. Our search uncovered only a string of foreign accounts. The trail of coin led from Antiva to Tevinter to the Free Marches and Orlais. Someone hid their tracks well, but not well enough. Your writer is in Kirkwall. And remember, you owe me a favor.
