Wouldn't the oldest human records on magic be found in Tevinter? I can arrange for our scholars to visit Minrathous's archives.

Leliana - 0:30:00[]

You recognized the magic used in the Well? The universities in Val Royeaux could look into it for us. They're well-funded.

Cullen - 0:30:00[]

The Seekers have written treatises on forbidden magic for ages. Cassandra could point us to some of their findings.

I must take over our investigation into the Well of Sorrows. Dozens of antiquarians and historians are begging us for the results; there have been several attempts to steal our research. While we have nothing conclusive, the research has proven useful in negotiations with interested scholars, and we should guard it accordingly. Leliana
