The Hanged Man is a tavern located in Lowtown, in the lower parts of Kirkwall north of the docks. It is the location for a number of quests, and it's the home base of both Varric Tethras and Isabela.

Background Edit

The Hanged Man is a major tavern in Kirkwall and the only one accessible to Hawke; it is a popular destination for all people, strangers or residents. The interior consists of one main room and four bedrooms, with an opulent suite currently occupied by Varric. The inhabitants of the tavern will vary, depending on what quests are active and progress through the main plot. Varric seems very interested in owning the tavern.

The tavern got its name because people used to be hanged by their feet at the spot, as Varric explains to Fenris in a party dialogue.

Trivia Edit

  • If you order 30 (doesn't have to be in same visit) drinks at the bar, whenever you enter the bar after that, the patrons will all shout "HAWKE!". This is a reference to the television series Cheers, in which all the patrons would shout "NORM! whenever he would enter the pub.
  • The Tarot Card "The Hanged Man" like all other cards in the Major Arcana deck (The Trump cards) has a meaning. Its meaning is "in suspense" or in some rephrasing "Hanging Around". This is portrayed by characters such as Isabela who is in the tavern waiting to move on with her life. The statue at the entrance is a reference to this card: a man hanged by the leg while the other is crossed in a figure-4 shape swinging in the blowing wind.
  • When talking to the patron closest to the exit, he will mention that Varric told a story of you escaping the Blight on the back of a giant turtle. This is a reference to Pirates of the Caribbean movies, whenever a character escapes off-screen such as The Guard Dog, Jack, Will and others will say it was "Sea Turtles."
  • On the wall next to where Isabela stands a hanging picture can be seen of concept art for Oghren.
  • According to a loading screen, the tavern's feature dish is stew, made from a different mystery meat every morning.
