Investigate Hunter Fell is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition. It is the first part of a logic grid puzzle in which the player must identify a Venatori agent from clues uncovered by the advisors.
Operation text Edit
Based on the revelation at Haven that Venatori operatives report to a darkspawn believed to be the magister Corypheus, threat assessment of possible Venatori has been prioritized as vital.
Duke Tythas Pentaghast rules the Nevarran city of Hunter Fell. A former military hero who prided himself on his open-minded attitude, Duke Tythas rules with the help of a secret network of old adventuring companions—and possible lovers, as they are all rumored to be beautiful women. Information on the "Five Belles of Hunter Fell" is limited, but they are known to include humans from both Orlais and Ferelden, an elf, a dwarf, and even a Tal-Vashoth. Known or suspected backgrounds range from respected Mortalitasi or dragon hunter to bard, smuggler, or even apostate.
We believe one of the Five Belles of Hunter Fell is a Venatori agent working to advance the agenda of Corypheus.
Advisor suggestions Edit
Dragon-hunting is a noble's sport, usually. I should be able to find out about this hunter.
A bard's reputation precedes her, even if she wishes otherwise. I can uncover more about her.
I've friends among the Templars; they might know more about this supposed apostate.
A letter to Josephine with information on the dragon hunter:
Although dragons were rare until quite recently, she had slain four. Those who have seen her fight say that seldom does one see anyone so tall as she move so quickly, for she stands head and shoulders above both the elven member of the Belles and the smuggler, yet moves with a grace neither can match.
A letter to Leliana with information on the bard:
I have heard only rumors, I fear, but it is said that her most intriguing aspect is her voice. It is of a unique quality, different from most Orlesian bards, who are human or elven.
A letter to Commander Cullen with information on the apostate:
All I can say for certain about the apostate is that when asked why she had not joined the circle, she declared that the Chant of the Light was for humans, and meant nothing to her. I hope this information helps.
All advisors Edit
- Gold (~75-110)
- Unlocks Continue Investigation operation.
- The operation text sets up the logic grid puzzle for the player. The Five Belles of Hunter Fell each have a different race: Orlesian human, Fereldan human, elf, dwarf, and Tal-Vashoth. Each has a different background: Mortalitasi, dragon hunter, bard, smuggler, and apostate. The player's goal will be to match each race with a different background in order to identify the Venatori agent. Each advisor will give the player a different set of additional information for the logic grid puzzle.
- The most useful piece of information at this stage is identifying the elf, as the identities of the dwarf and Tal-Vashoth can be determined regardless of choices. Josephine determines she is "not the smuggler," Cullen identifies her as the "apostate." If Leliana is chosen, she can only determine that she is "not the bard," which is not as useful since the bard can be identified later on solely from the Ben-Hassrath's information provided in mission briefings. Choosing Josephine or Cullen next will make it a little more difficult to arrive at the correct solution in the final stage.
