The Free Company is an event in Dragon Age: The Last Court. It is continued from the card Road and River or The Bard wants a Quiet Word.

Description Edit

The Wayward Bard speaks. "I've had dealings with their captain before. Ferelden by birth, but no nation would claim him now. Pleasant enough, for a treacherous freebooter who'd gut you if he thought you'd swallowed a purse. He'll have sniffed out our brewing civil war.
"If you like, I could arrange an introduction. Best not to ignore them, though. There's a lot of them, they're trained soldiers, and they're used to taking whatever they bloody well want."

There's nearly a hundred of them, crossing Serault in search of war: wolf-like soldiers clad in mismatched armor and carrying well-kept, well-used weapons. Their eyes are hard, their hands are calloused from sword-work, and their supplies are running low...
