Harsh Decisions is a quest received from the Favors for Certain Interested Parties Quest Board, and is the last quest from that particular board.

In this quest, you will have to defend the business interests of the rogue "D", from encroachment by the rogue "K". Your job is to make sure that "D" never has to worry about "K" again. The briefing for the quest reads:

"To the Warden, from 'D.'

So, the person assisting me is the infamous Grey Warden. I like that. Someone else who prefer hands-on, not plying with trinkets. We are alike, you and I.

I'm sick of journeymen changing things just to make their name. And I'm tired of trying to make friends. Business is business, not who likes who. It's time to set an example.

Young "K" is becoming too much of a headache. I want him dead. No whispers, no setting plots in motion. Everyone knows he's after my territory. No point in hiding the act now. In fact, I'll spread the word and his lieutenants will find you. You can take it. You're the Warden."

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

To complete this quest, you have to first kill "K's" Lieutenant, then "K" himself.

To accomplish the first leg of this quest, start traveling around Denerim (Denerim Market District to The Pearl works nicely) and you will have an encounter at a Run-Down Alley with the Lieutenant and his henchmen. After a scuffle, he will be dead and after looting his body you should have a new location on your Denerim City Map.

Travel to K's Hideout, kill "K," and return to the Bartender for a reward.

After killing "K," any of his quests yet to be completed will no longer be available.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

  • 10 Gold
  • 250 XP

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Killing "K" may not complete the quest right away, as when returning to collect your reward the quest log hasn't updated yet. Simply return to "K"s Hideout and it will update. At which point you can return to the bartender and collect your reward.
  • If Animate Dead is used on the henchman carrying info on K's whereabouts during the random encounter in Denerim's streets, this quest cannot be completed.
