Available after completing Investigate Duke Antoine of Wycome with Josephine.
The nobles of Wycome grow more agitated by the day. They clearly blame us and the elves in the alienage for some disease that has stricken the humans of the city, and I have seen their scouts watching our new camp with predators' eyes.
Some of the elves of Wycome fled their alienage to warn us. Others fled to escape the harsh treatment they are suffering in the city.
I fear violence will come soon, da'len. I ask your help in this matter.

Josephine's diplomat advised against direct force. My scouts could get the Dalish hunters inside the city.

Josephine's diplomat found that the nobles of Wycome are using red lyrium. We should send forces to the city to stop this.
We brought the Dalish forces into the city. They joined with a resistance group formed by the elves living in Wycome and struck at Duke Antoine and the red lyrium supplies that had been placed in the city's wells.
When the red lyrium was shown to the human merchants and laborers, they quickly joined with the Dalish and city elves. The fighting was short but brutal, culminating in the deaths of Duke Antoine and his personal retinue, which included Venatori agents.
Most of Wycome's nobles have fled the popular uprising and now claim this was an elven uprising that killed a beloved ruler. For now, however, the Dalish are seen as heroes in Wycome. They remain in the city, uncertain of what to do next.
Our forces marched upon Wycome, but even with many of their soldiers weakened by the sickening effects of the red lyrium, they had a significant standing army. The fighting was bloody, and fires started by the battle spread throughout much of the city, costing the lives of many citizens.
We destroyed the red lyrium, but were forced to retreat after doing so. The remaining forces of Wycome did not pursue us, but fell upon Clan Lavellan in their rage. I regret to inform you that the Dalish clan was entirely destroyed.
I recommend the Inquisition withdraw from the area. While reports of our activities scattered and contradictory, it can only hurt the Inquisition's reputation to continue making enemies in the Free Marches.
