Alliances: Getting Things Moving is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available after completing the main quest Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts or Here Lies the Abyss.

Operation text Edit

Many of the nobility of the Orlesian capital have settled their secondary differences and are rallying behind two families. The desRosiers are old money, well respected but viewed as traditional and stubborn. The Thibaults rose with a popular merchant consortium and are considered new money and progressive. While the intent of both families was to rival us politically, if we declare for one of them, we may manipulate events in our favor. Lord Pierren desRosier has not asked for our allegiance, but may respect our rising might. Lady Velise Thibault speaks for her investors and is interested in forward-thinking alliances.

Advisor suggestions Edit

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - 3:00:00 Edit

I can draw a number of agreements that tie us to little beyond ceremony. That will gain the initial interest of the Thibaults.

Leliana - N/A Edit

Not participating in this mission.

Cullen - 2:24:00 Edit

We certainly have the forces. That is a simple demonstration to make to the desRosiers.

Results Edit

Josephine Edit

I will not turn my back on them, but we have established agreements with the Thibaults. Their initial hatred of the Inquisition was a device, and they are willing to have us in their favor.


Cullen Edit

While I do not trust them, we have at least gained the interest of the desRosiers. Their initial declarations against us seem to have fallen by the wayside as more traditional deciders of power have come into play.


Rewards Edit

Josephine Edit

  • 30 Influence



  • Unlocks the operation Alliances: Forging a Way Forward
    • Leads to 30 Influence and an AmuletofPowerIcon Amulet of Power (Vivienne) in later operations

Cullen Edit

  • 30 Influence


Rewards Tree and Results Edit

There are seven different war table operations that can be reached from this one, though only four will be completed by the Inquisition depending on the choices made. The immediate difference is, as stated above, that the mission unlocked by going with Josephine here leads to a total 30 influence and an Amulet of Power (Vivienne), while the one unlocked by Cullen only nets 90 influence. In the long term, it decides the fate of Lord desRosier, young Celeste who is a daughter of Thibault house, and Celeste's sweetheart, Jecin.
