The Fallow Mire is a rainy bog located in the southern part of Ferelden.
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 some kind of plague that either killed or drove everyone away. The remaining villagers have tried to carve out a meager existence in the Fallow Mire, but their lives were under constant threat by a tidal wave of undead rising from the murky waters flooding much of the region.
At some point an apostate, Widris, found her way into the Mire, 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 on them.

- 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.
