The Black Emporium is a war table scouting operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

This operation is only available after installing The Black Emporium (Inquisition DLC).

Operation text Edit

"Voices on the winds speak of a new power abroad in the world. 'Inquisition,' they whisper----an ancient name restored, a memory rekindled and transformed into a blaze of hope. I hear the whispers and summon the fires of the Inquisition. Here in the depths beneath the City of Chains, countless mysteries hide in shadow in anticipation of the light.

Come. Black Emporium awaits."

Xenon the Antiquarian must spend his days composing melodramatic invitations to his establishment. I imagine being stuck in a chair for centuries leaves one somewhat lacking for entertainment.

This particular message was hand-delivered by a cloaked figure at twilight, precisely as the sun disappeared beneath the peaks. (My men spied the courier lurking about our outer gates for at least an hour waiting for sunset. A servant under the command of some very specific instructions, I assume.)

That aside, I would encourage a visit to the Black Emporium. The Antiquarian's hoard is legendary; only those he deems worthy ever lay eyes on it. The Champion of Kirkwall recieved an invitation once and reported (among other things) a strange mirror that could transform even flesh and bone.

Who knows, we may uncover something that aids in the battle against Corypheus,


Advisor suggestions Edit


Not participating in this mission.


Not participating in this mission.


You'll need passage across the Waking Sea to Kirkwall. That is easily arranged.

Result Edit

A ship has been secured. Be wary of what you find in the Black Emporium, Inquisitor. I have heard many frightful tales.


Rewards Edit

New Area Unlocked! Black Emporium

Notes Edit

The operation is available in the Haven war room as well as Skyhold's, despite the operation being written in a way that assumes that the Inquisition has already relocated to Skyhold. Namely, how Leliana references Corypheus by name, Xenon's courier standing about the "outer gates" (which assumes Skyhold), and how Cullen addresses the Herald as the Inquisitor.
