Locate Weapon of Tyrdda Bright-Axe is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

This operation becomes available after discovering all of the Saga of Tyrdda Bright-Axe, Avvar-Mother landmarks in the Hinterlands.

Operation text Edit

Inquisitor,

As a longtime scholar of the ancient Avvar, I find the information you uncovered about Tyrdda Bright-Axe fascinating. Many believe the Avvar unsophisticated barbarians with no culture worth studying, but do not Orlesians say the same of us?

The rich oral tradition of the Avvar has been largely lost, leaving only these rune-marked fragments. Nevertheless, these confirm what we have heard in stories, that Tyrdda pulled her tribe away from would-be warlord and chose a hard life in the mountains for uncertain reasons. It is fortunate that she did, for had the Avvar remained, the ancient Alamarri might have pushed north and attracted the attention of the Neromenian tribes that would one day form the Tevinter Imperium. Had that happened, it is unlikely the Alamarri would have survived to become Ferelden as we know it.

Based on marker runes left at each of these locations, I may be able to find the site where Tyrdda’s legendary axe is located. A crystal-headed axe, said to burn with flame, would be a fascinating find indeed, if the Inquisition will finance my expedition.

Yours,
Sister Dorcas Guerrin

Advisor suggestions Edit

Josephine - 24:00:00 Edit

Sister Dorcas has distant ties to Fereldan nobility. There are nobles who would happily gain favor with Arl Eamon by helping her.

Leliana - 24:00:00 Edit

The Avvar tribes are not friendly. My scouts can get sister Dorcas in and out of the mountains safely.

Cullen - 19:12:00 Edit

If it’s worth our time, I can provide this scholar with soldiers to protect her.

Inquisitor,

I have no idea what to say. Scholars have debated whether Tyrdda’s legendary axe was an axe set with crystal, an axe with a magically reinforced crystalline head, or perhaps even just a very polished axe, but apparently the word translated from the ancient language commonly taken to be “axe” in fact merely means “hafted weapon.” It is possible that translations of the saga have been edited to omit evidence that Tyrdda Bright-Axe may have been using what seems, from all appearances, to be a staff, as would more commonly be used by a mage.

I apologize for my confusion in this matter; I will endeavor to be more diligent in my translations in the future.

Yours,
Sister Dorcas Guerrin
