The Hinterlands are a region in Ferelden located between the fortress of Ostagar and Redcliffe.

Background

The Hinterlands comprises a good deal of fertile agricultural land and as such is populated with a great many farmsteads throughout the area. Its main settlement is Redcliffe Village, situated in the western hills of Ferelden and protected by Redcliffe Castle. Since the end of the Fifth Blight, the Hinterlands have seen an influx of settlers from Redcliffe Village looking to escape unpleasant memories of the darkspawn and the other dark events which befell Redcliffe during the Blight.

Involvement


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Since the outbreak of the Mage-Templar War, the Hinterlands has suffered as the site of several battles between apostate mages and rebel templars. The local population has been the victim of attacks by both sides.

The Inquisitor can help restore order to the region by helping the inhabitants in a variety of ways, and ultimately by ending Mage-Templar War.
