Stop the Rumors is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available after completing Here Lies the Abyss and Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts and after the Inquisitor has spoken to Maryden the minstrel in the Herald's Rest tavern. It may be necessary to visit her in Val Royeaux to gain the operation.

Operation text Edit

From far-off Montsimmard, a songstress comes, with lies and thoughtless gibes insults our name. (I hated her in school. She pulled my hair.) We must not let her make these vulgar claims!


Advisor suggestions Edit

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - 1:00:00 Edit

Our allies' words will turn the tide for us.

Leliana - 0:48:00 Edit

A minstrel with no tongue can tell no lies.

Cullen - 0:48:00 Edit

No. This is ridiculous.

Results Edit

Josephine Edit

The lyre's song is all too quick forgot,
And at a word, her patrons turn aside.


Leliana Edit

A dire act! A lesson learned by all!
So cross us not in either deed or thought.


Cullen Edit

A soldier cares not for a poet's pain.
Just go and fall upon your sword, you prat.
