In their search for the source of mysterious earthquakes, a company led by Inquisitor and dwarves Valta and Renn descend past the Deep Roads, and whilst navigating a cave system in the dark, they realize they're not alone. Renn demands the entities to reveal themselves, and is shot with a projectile. The Sha-Brytol reveal themselves, armed with mechanized crossbows and lyrium-infused armor. A fight ensues, and Renn succumbs to his wounds in the battle's aftermath. Valta grieves, but examines the Sha-Brytol, recognizing them as dwarves. The company lays Renn to rest and presses on, finding lyrium carvings similar to the Orzammar's Memories.The company pushes further, meeting heavy Sha-Brytol resistance, until they enter something unprecedented: a massive cavern, verdant with green. The Inquisitor and Valta surmise the Sha-Brytol live within the cavern, then spot a massive piece of pure lyrium atop a shrine. Valta credits it as the source of the quakes. The Sha-Brytol attempt to stop their advance, but are slain. Once they reach the shrine however, the lyrium crystal blasts away Valta, incapacitating her, and assembles a guardian to defend itself.
