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 Edit

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 Edit

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

Results Edit

All advisors Edit

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.
