The Brecilian Ruins are old ruins of presumably Tevinter origin in the Brecilian Forest.

Background[edit | edit source]

The spirit the Warden encounters in the ruins reveals that humans had built the structure long ago. Curiously enough, it was an elven sanctuary where, according to the presence, "the eldest came to slumber", and others came to pay tribute to the gods on their behalf, explaining the presence of altars, tombs and gravestones found in the ruins. It is therefore implied that humans were coexisting with the elves in some form.

The structure and its inhabitants, human and elf, were destroyed by a "terrible presence", though exactly what that presence was had been forgotten by the arcane warrior's spirit over time.
