The basement within the Circle Tower is accessed from the first floor. The repository is a restricted area, protected by Sentinels, as phylacteries and other magical artifacts, many of whom belonging to the ancient Tevinter Imperium, are locked away.

Background Edit

The entrance, called "The Victim's Door" by the Chantry, can only be opened by a templar and a mage. The Chantry provides a password, "Sword of the Maker, Tears of the Fade", which primes the ward, while the mage touches it with mana by casting a spell to release it.

The door to the phylactery chamber is protected from magic because of the wards carved into the stone by templars. As such, normal keys which the First Enchanter and the Knight-Commander of the Circle Tower possess must be used. However, the magi is able to access the chamber by destroying a wall from from the artifact vault as it shares a common wall, which was covering another entrance.
