—From Codex entry: Alienage Culture
Dragon Age: Origins Edit
- See City Elf Origin for information about who and what can be found at this location during the origin story.
After the origin story, the Alienage is closed off because of rumoured unrest until fairly late in the campaign against the Blight. Only sometime after Arl Eamon Guerrin calls the Landsmeet will the Warden be able to investigate the Unrest in the Alienage.
Several years after the Blight, the Alienage fell under the leadership of Shianni. It was the only area of Denerim that continued to lag behind, its buildings still little more than shacks that had fallen into disrepair.
The Darkspawn Chronicles Edit
The Denerim Alienage is the location for the third main quest in The Darkspawn Chronicles, Raze the Alienage. There, the Archdemon commands you to burn the alienage to the ground and kill all of the surviving elves.
