The Fallow Mire is rainy uncharted marsh located in the southern most part of Ferelden.

Background Edit

The bog here stretches on forever when traveling on the roads, especially at night when the mists become heavy and thick. There's enough good hunting to make the trip worthwhile; fish, birds, even a few harts. One thing to look out for though... when anything dies in the water— The Mire preserves it.[1]

I was watching the sky when I heard screams from the old castle. I went to the gate and saw horned figures in the mist. Tell everyone who hasn't got the plague yet to leave.[2]

South of the Hinterlands, the land is wet and miserable, subject to seemingly endless storms. Some time before 9:41 Dragon, the village suffered from a terrible plague; killing most whilst driving others away.[3] The remaining villagers tried to carve out a meager existence, but to no avail, as their lives were under constant threat from a tidal wave of undead that rose from the nearby murky waters which had flooded most of the region.

The Fallow Mire is a sprawling stretch of isolated marshland in southwestern Ferelden. The muggy, treacherous bog was once home to a small fishing community called Fisher's End, which was wiped out by a plague that swept through a few years ago.

Involvement Edit


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


At some point Widris, an apostate, found her way into The Mire after having fled from a Circle. She began studying the local flora in hopes of finding a way to create a potion that would help her breach the Fade and beyond. She created beacons throughout the bog and hid secret messages in veilfire runes across them.

The Avvars have captured a group of Inquisition soldiers and are holding them captive in the Mire's Keep in hopes of aggressive negotiations with the Inquisitor. The Inquisitor can gain access to The Mire by completing the Rescue Soldiers Missing in Ferelden war table scouting operation in Haven or Skyhold.

Notes Edit

  • The Fallow Mire is the only area where a scout-related War Table operation is available to all advisors.
  • Despite the name, Hargrave Keep is not a keep that can be taken in order to fulfill war table or Forward Scouts prerequisites.
  • The summon undead effect from going into the water only holds for the controlled character; other characters that wander into the water from milling about do not generate the effect.
  • Mounts are disabled in the entire region.
  • Acquiring the Grey Warden Tome will unlock the Patron of the Arts song Shred of Blue.
