A letter can be found on a Grey Warden mage, one of several dead bodies at the Ritual Tower in the Western Approach after disturbing the ritual of the Grey Wardens and Erimond during the quest Here Lies the Abyss in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
I don't trust this ritual Clarel is talking about. Are you sure it's safe? Have you ever used blood magic? I don't care what the Chantry says—I doubt they'd approve of the Joining if they knew everything about us—but my family fought Tevinter slavers near the border. This Erimond sounds like everything that's wrong with the Imperium.
I'll be waiting for you when you get back. If you can look me in the eye and tell me that this ritual is safe, I won't speak of it again. If not… just come back safe, please.
- Warden Chernoff can be encountered at Adamant Fortress, leading a group of Grey Warden warriors.
