When the Dwarf Commoner wakes up, [[Leske]] talks to them about what happened after the guards seized the Dwarf Commoner. He admits that the Dwarf Commoner will likely be sentenced to death for all the unlawful things that they did despite [[Duncan]]'s request to be exiled. He also agrees that this is not a typical cell due to the number of bloodstains on the wall, however before they attempt to escape, [[Jarvia]] enters the cell room and informs them that she got them here after [[Beraht]] ordered her to.

She also says that Beraht lost 100{{g}} for [[House Vollney|Lord Vollney]] as the whole proving was declared invalid while the [[Assembly]] called for an investigation, and the Warrior caste is in a turmoil as a casteless defeated their best warriors. As the Dwarf Commoner and Leske could talk and reveal things about Beraht, the latter moved quickly and with bribery he claimed back the two prisoners as he also wanted him to have the pleasure of killing the Dwarf Commoner and Leske. If the Dwarf Commoner does also ask about this place, Jarvia mentions that the Dwarf Commoner and Leske never had the privilege of being down here as this place is one of the deep cells of Beraht's estate, which extend to the ruins of old [[Orzammar]] and there is plenty of room to store gold and lyrium while the walls are too thick so that no one can hear the screams.
   
Having been abducted by Beraht, the Dwarf Commoner Warden now must escape Beraht's clutches before it is too late.
+
Then the Dwarf Commoner could protest or say that they are not afraid of Beraht, however regardless of what they choose, Jarvia will leave, leaving behind a carta member to act as a guard, who does not seem to be very intelligent.
   
==Background==
+
The only option the Dwarf Commoner is left with is to escape the cells and then his hideout before Beraht finds them:
<!---descr="What's it all about. Who, what, where, why, when."--->
+
* Pick the lock if you possess the [[Talents (Origins)|talent]] [[Deft Hands]] and at least 20 [[Attributes (Origins)#Cunning|Cunning]].
   
You have ended up in Beraht's custody. Beraht is quite put out with you, and hope for your continued survival is slim if you don't manage to get out of here.
+
* Talk to the guard, then pick his pocket for the [[Cell Key (Origins)|Cell Key]] while he is distracted (requires one point of [[Stealing]]).
   
==Walkthrough==
+
* Talk to the guard and fake an illness so that he may come inside (requires one point of [[Coercion]]).
<!---descr="How do you do it."--->
 
   
But to do so, you must first get out of the holding cell. There are several ways to accomplish this:
+
* Talk to the guard, and tell him that you need to speak with Jarvia; if successful, he will exit the room and leave you unguarded (requires one point in [[Coercion]]).
   
*Pick the lock if you possess the skill (Deft Hands)
+
* Talk to the guard, then kill him by grabbing him and slamming his head against the cell bars (requires at least 15 [[Strength]]).
*Talk to the guard, and the pick his pocket for the key while he is distracted (Stealing)
 
*Talk to the guard, and fake an illness so that he may come inside (Coercion)
 
   
Note: The Dwarf Commoner Warden has a point in Stealing by default, making the second option a guaranteed success. On the other hand, the third option is hilarious.
+
* Search the rubble in your cell for some splinters, give them to [[Leske]] and he will kill the guard in a cutscene and then free you both.
  +
{{Note|The Dwarf Commoner Warden has a point in Stealing by default, making the second option a guaranteed success. On the other hand, the only option in which the carta guard gets out of this alive, is if he is persuaded to find and bring Jarvia.}}
   
Free Leske from his cell. While you can't pick the lock, you can loot the key from the guard's corpse.
+
You can re-obtain all of your gear in the chest labeled {{TextContainer|Confiscated Belongings}} (except for [[Everd Bera|Everd]]'s equipment, obviously). If you killed the guard, his corpse may contain the Cell Key (provided that you haven't stolen it earlier) which can be used to unlock the doors of the two cells.
  +
{{Note|If you try to leave with the key in your inventory and Leske still locked up, there will be a cutscene in which [[Leske]] shouts to open him up and then the Dwarf Commoner returns and unlocks the cell door.}}
   
Note: It's not necessary, but his presence enhances the chances of your survival dramatically.
+
Most of the areas are blocked off, although there is still some loot to be found. You will have to fight your way through several groups of carta thugs, unless you use [[Stealth (Origins)|Stealth]] (Leske will have it by default.) to bypass them, though you will miss out a considerable amount of experience and loot. If you still plan on doing that, note that one of the rooms has [[Fire Trap]] set at the left side of the entrance, so walk carefully.

Dragon Age: Origins.


When the Dwarf Commoner wakes up, Leske talks to them about what happened after the guards seized the Dwarf Commoner. He admits that the Dwarf Commoner will likely be sentenced to death for all the unlawful things that they did despite Duncan's request to be exiled. He also agrees that this is not a typical cell due to the number of bloodstains on the wall, however before they attempt to escape, Jarvia enters the cell room and informs them that she got them here after Beraht ordered her to.

She also says that Beraht lost 100DAO goldpiece trans for Lord Vollney as the whole proving was declared invalid while the Assembly called for an investigation, and the Warrior caste is in a turmoil as a casteless defeated their best warriors. As the Dwarf Commoner and Leske could talk and reveal things about Beraht, the latter moved quickly and with bribery he claimed back the two prisoners as he also wanted him to have the pleasure of killing the Dwarf Commoner and Leske. If the Dwarf Commoner does also ask about this place, Jarvia mentions that the Dwarf Commoner and Leske never had the privilege of being down here as this place is one of the deep cells of Beraht's estate, which extend to the ruins of old Orzammar and there is plenty of room to store gold and lyrium while the walls are too thick so that no one can hear the screams.

Then the Dwarf Commoner could protest or say that they are not afraid of Beraht, however regardless of what they choose, Jarvia will leave, leaving behind a carta member to act as a guard, who does not seem to be very intelligent.

The only option the Dwarf Commoner is left with is to escape the cells and then his hideout before Beraht finds them:

  • Talk to the guard, then pick his pocket for the Cell Key while he is distracted (requires one point of Stealing).

Beraht and the two thugs

Note: Beraht is Lieutenant rank, so he is a quite tougher opponent.

Once Beraht and the two thugs are slain, you can loot the Dwarven Warrior's Belt from his corpse. There are some locked chests behind a locked side door. Once you're finished looting the area, use the secret entrance which takes out to Beraht's Shop. Beraht's shopkeeper won't have any dialogue option as he will be scared immediately and the only available option is to exit his shop.

You will be confronted by the Proving Master, who will try to arrest you for impersonating Everd. Duncan intervenes, however, and offers an invitation for you join the Grey Wardens. In the ensuing conversation, you may elect to speak with your sister and/or Leske before your departure. As you leave, Duncan hands you an Aeducan Mace as a gift.
