Background Edit

Map-The Black Emporium

Map of the area

The Black Emporium is a shop, owned by Xenon the Antiquarian, an eccentric and immortal character. Xenon once made a deal with a witch for eternal life but forgot to ask for eternal youth. This caused his body to decay. He has been alive for at least 300 years and has acquired many artifacts. The entrance to his emporium is only given to those he deems worthy.

Notes Edit

  • The emporium's stores are restocked with better items as the game progresses.
  • The recipes of The Black Emporium are unique and can be bought only here.
  • Crafting resources missed in previous acts will show up here and count toward the available resources for crafting and also toward the Supplier achievement.
  • Unlike the other stores in the game, The Black Emporium is always open and can be accessed at any time, including post-game.

Trivia Edit

  • Brother Ferdinand Genitivi is a customer of The Black Emporium.[1]
  • Dragon Age II: The Complete Official Guide mentions that items can be sold at The Black Emporium for 125% of their value, but instead items are sold at normal price and items purchased from the emporium are 125% of their value.
  • Xenon makes a reference to Professor Dumbledore from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series when you first access the Emporium's Relics and Antiques. Xenon mentions that "you can never have enough socks," as did Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
  • The red box situated in the top right part of the map screams when it is passed by.
  • When interacting with the nude statue, Xenon says, "Please don't fondle Andraste."
  • Stepping over to where the Nude Statue of Andraste is located will cause Xenon to cry out as if in pain, likely due to the priceless item being knocked over.
