== Background ==
Upon arriving at the '''Roadside''', [[The Warden]] sees a battle between [[mage]]s and [[darkspawn]]: a mage with 2 apprentices is standing atop a little hill, preparing to defend against a wave of darkspawn. Luckily for them, the Warden assists in the fight. This encounter only occurs if the Warden sided with the mages in the [[Broken Circle]] questline.

* [[Mage]] is only there for a brief speech. He is taking the apprentices to [[Redcliffe]]. The first enchanter told him that you, [[The Warden]], need every able-bodied mage for the war. Even if the apprentices are killed during the battle, the [[Mage]] will still refer to them as if they are alive. There is nothing to be gained by preventing the death of the [[Mage]] or the apprentices.

*[[Paralysis Explosion]] is very useful, incapacitating most darkspawn and making mages' [[Tempest (Origins)|Tempest]] increasingly powerful.
 
   
*All of the darkspawn use melee weapons and as such, the only way for them to harm the mages is to run uphill, using one narrow path. While it is impossible to completely block it off with [[Glyph of Repulsion (Origins)|Glyph of Repulsion]], a melee-oriented party can still bottleneck them. Additionally, it is a great place to lay down traps.
