The fortress appears to be small, but is sturdy, with tall walls made of dark jetstone and metal ramparts. In fact it is built into the side of the chasm with vast halls down below. Once, it belonged to the [[Grey Wardens]] who beat back the [[darkspawn]] that rose from the chasm during the [[Second Blight]], a symbol of their impossible achievement. Then, it housed more than a thousand men and [[griffon]]s - with weyrs opened onto the chasm.

With passing years, the Western Approach became a wasteland and maintaining the keep became more and more expensive in the eyes of the visiting [[Commander of the Grey|Warden-Commanders]]. The sacrifices of the order became a distant memory to the locals, who despite [[demon]] attacks on the area's population considered only the Grey Wardens themselves to truly be in danger from the thin [[Veil]] and the darkspawn crawling out of the Abyssal Rift. As personnel dwindled and the griffons no longer helped surveil the badlands, the Wardens ultimately pulled back in disgrace to [[Montsimmard]]. At the dawning of the [[Blessed Age]], Adamant fortress was abandoned, having become a symbol of the Wardens' decline in the region.<ref>[http://www.dragonage.com/#!/en_US/news/the-fortress-of-adamant The Fortress of Adamant].

The keep became a home for the [[tranquil]] named [[Pharamond]], who conducted his research there due to the Veil being very thin. The keep's inhabitants supported his research and even sealed the keep at the Lord Mayor's suggestion. As a result of his experiments, the fortress was overrun by [[demon]]s in 9:40 [[Dragon Age (time period)|Dragon]]. All buildings but the keep itself were burned to the ground, and most of the inhabitants were killed and their [[corpse]]s were possessed.

The Adamant Fortress will appear in ''[[Dragon Age: Inquisition]]''.
In 9:41 Dragon, Adamant is reoccupied by the [[Orlais|Orlesian]] [[Grey Wardens]], who had allied with the [[Venatori]]. Sacrificing their own warriors, enthralled Warden [[mages]] began summoning demons, ostensibly to march into the Deep Roads to kill the [[Old Gods]]. However, the fortress came under siege by the [[Inquisition]], due to the Wardens sheltering [[Magister]] [[Livius Erimond]], a member of the Venatori. When [[the Inquisitor]], [[Hawke]] and a Warden ally reaches [[Commander of the Grey|Warden-Commander]] [[Clarel de Chanson|Clarel]], they were able to convince her that Erimond is in league with [[Corypheus]], an ancient darkspawn. In the resulting battle, the Inquisitor, Hawke, the Warden ally and their party accidentally fall into the [[Fade]]. After escaping the dream realm, with either Hawke or the Warden ally staying behind to fight the [[Nightmare (demon)|Nightmare demon]], the Inquisitor has the option of either allying with the surviving Wardens or exiling them from Orlais.
 
 
Afterwards the Inquisitor can order [[Bull's Chargers]] to [[Destroy Adamant Fortress]].}}
