Judgment: Playing to Win is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available after Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts if Grand Duchess Florianne de Chalons is kept alive and judged back at Skyhold. The Inquisitor must select the Nobility Knowledge Inquisition perk judgment.

Operation text Edit

Contact has been made. There are others in service to Corypheus. They were promised immortality in the next world and will spare no action in this one. They cannot fathom abandoning their master, and therefore, they cannot imagine me abandoning their master. And that is your opening.

I can give you all of these people, and I promise there are names among them. But they will not act, will not reveal themselves, without a promise of victory that would warrant risking everything.

Give me a target, Inquisitor. Place your people in obvious weakness, a true tactical blunder that would legitimately pain you. It must be thus; they will sense any falseness. Reveal your side, and I will reveal the knife, and then you can take it, take them.

That is my plan. I know what it looks like. Perhaps I have fooled you all along, and now I have simply asked for you to grant me victory. But I play the Game, Inquisitor. Will you now play as well?

Advisor suggestions Edit

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - 4:00:00 Edit

It is a risk, but she is not one of them. Say the word, and a weakness will be known.

Leliana - 4:00:00 Edit

Make the promise. My people will watch the runners. We will get some of these conspirators, and the only one we will risk is her.

Cullen - 3:12:00 Edit

She is mad if she thinks we would commit to such a risk. Send her after some gossiping prat instead.

Results Edit

Josephine Edit

We presented a flank, a side too tempting not to strike at it. And they did, just as Duchess Florianne said they would. We pulled back in time, exposing many names Inquisitor. The scandal of this will take time to sort, but it was well worth the gamble. That is not what I would say to those we put at risk, but many more will thrive because of this.


A note from Florianne follows:

A risk well taken, Inquisitor (name). For an instant, I longed to drive the blade home, to take advantage just as we both believed I might. But the anguish of a dozen destroyed names is sweet enough.

In your service, surprisingly
Grand Duchess Florianne de Chalons

Leliana Edit

Florianne's plan went perfectly, until ours was enacted even more perfectly. We exposed a number of names allied with the Venatori, although the ease with which they were abandoned suggests there were more to have. But we did it without a drop of our own blood hitting the ground. Aside from the duchess, who has not been seen for some days. The sudden exposure of her plan may have made her suspect in the eyes of the Venatori. Some might claim it was a shame to use her this way. She would not. If I know her kind, she expected it and would commend that we did it first.


Cullen Edit

We have received nothing of worth from Florianne. I think I prefer it that way.


A note from Florianne follows:

Lady Something-or-Other served a disastrous soup. Lord No-One-Cares has another mistress. If I was meant to be this bored, this useless, you should have sent me to the Chantry.
