Make Contact in the Emerald Graves is a war table scouting operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Part of the side quest Fairbanks' Trust which is acquired upon arrival at Skyhold.

Operation text Edit

We’ve been contacted by a “Fairbanks,” who says he has information of value to the Inquisition. He offers a trade: the information in exchange for the Inquisition’s help in eliminating a dangerous rebel band calling themselves the “Freeman of the Dales.” There have been reported sightings of these rebels all over the Dales, where they have caused significant problems for Orlesian troops. Uprooting them could be a good move for us.

First, let us see what Fairbanks has to say. He is hiding out somewhere in the Emerald Graves, an legendary Dalish forest. My spies report that he is well acquainted with the area and its terrain. He could prove a useful asset, if we choose to trust him.

Result Edit

Lead Scout Harding made contact with Fairbanks and his men in the Emerald Graves, and had a run-in with rebel Freeman of the Dales. They are as violent as we’ve been let to believe. As for Fairbanks, Harding was unable to coax much from him. He will only share what he knows with the Hearld of Andraste, it seems.

Fairbanks is holding his information close to his chest. I wonder if it might relate to something bigger than just the Freeman of the Dales. If there is a chance at all, then we must learn all we can from him. Harding has set up an outpost in the emerald Graves. Be careful, Inquisitor. The forest of the Graves is treacherous, and home to enemies both new and ancient.
