When the Warden travels to the Brecilian Outskirts via the World map they will arrive at the Dalish Camp, residence of the Dalish elves.

Background[edit | edit source]

The clan heraldry

The Dalish elves are a nomadic peoples, and thus all of their equipment and homes are built to be mobile. The Warden will see several aravels or large carts or wagons that are pulled by their halla. The camp is merely a temporary place of residence for the Dalish until they decide to move elsewhere in the world. The Dalish do not plan, and rarely share, their movements with anyone, even members of other clans. This particular camp is unable to relocate due to recent (and ongoing) events, however.

This clan is led by their keeper Zathrian. They have some conflicts with their neighbours: the werewolves.

Containers[edit | edit source]

Special objects[edit | edit source]

Colored Inks

  • Colored Inks can be inspected to gain Codex entry: Vallaslin: Blood Writing.
  • Various totems and statues that also give Codex entries related to the elven pantheon. There are two totems attached to the wheels of some of the Dalish aravels, these totems take the shape of a what seems to be an ox's skull. The Codex entries explain the polytheistic religion of the Dalish elves, with each statue or totem representing a different deity.
  • A chest to the left of Zathrian, however, examining it draws Lanaya's attention and she asks you to leave it alone. It is impossible to persuade her to allow you to open the chest at this time, as this persuade check has no success branch. If you choose to leave it alone and then try to open the chest again, Lanaya will accuse you of stealing from the chest (even though you haven't as a third attempt yields the book) and she will become very harsh towards you, preventing you from asking any more questions about the Dalish people or Zathrian. If you examine the chest after siding with the elves, Lanaya does not try to stop you or accuse you of stealing, and you may take the song book without repercussion.
