Tevinter researchers performed a magical experiment in this palace a long time ago. Their objective was to tap into the powers and energy of the Fade, but in doing so, they created a Breach through which demons started pouring out. A fail-safe built into their experiment was triggered and froze time within the palace.
The ruins are now guarded by Venatori seeking artifacts and power associated with the old magical experiment.Within the palace, the Inquisitor will find a number of Tevinter mages and demons surrounding a Fade Breach, all frozen in time from the moment the experiment broke down.
