Honnleath is a village in southwestern Ferelden and part of the Arling of Redcliffe.

Background Edit

Honnleath is the home of a mage named Wilhelm and his family. Wilhelm was a hero of the Fereldan Rebellion against Orlais, fighting alongside Maric Theirin personally on multiple occasions. Afterwards he was permitted to retire to Honnleath, where he lived with his wife and son. A stone statue which the villagers decorate during festivals stands in the village square and is loved by many local birds as a resting and feeding place.

Area-Village of Honnleath


Honnleath is overrun by the Darkspawn during the Fifth Blight. Matthias saves several of the villagers using his father's magical defenses installed beneath their home.

As the Warden's party arrives, a pair of villagers flee from a trio of genlocks. The majority of the citizens have been slaughtered and the town is swarming with darkspawn.

The stone statue is in fact a golem named Shale which can become a companion to the Warden.

Rgt ico deathroot DeathrootDeathroot
A harmless enough plant on its own, deathroot's thick leaves contain an extract that the Chasind have used to induce hallucinations for centuries. Sufficiently concentrated, it can be made into a deadly poison.
Rgt ico elfroot ElfrootElfroot
The common name for canavaris, this herb actually has little to do with elves other than being commonly collected and traded to outsiders by the Dalish. It is the primary ingredient in many healing salves.

Use: Chewing elfroot restores a small amount of health, and those with skill can use elfroot to make more potent elixirs.
