I just thought that it was worth mentioning that there are multiple "Back Alley" encounters on the Denerim City Map. The first other that comes to my mind that is definitely called "Back Alley" is where you can encounter a Revenant for The Black Vials quest and where a group of bandits will drop a gate possibly cutting one or two characters off from the fight.

After I unsuccessfully tried to pickpocket the young lady in the market (and her guard) I got an encounter with about 20 soldiers with their leader taunting us with "Lookie here, men. When I heard that one of the famous Grey Wardens was pilfering folk, I thought, "Can't be." But here he is. Looks like the Wardens have fallen hard. Soldiers, kill him." Now that was a surprise... -- 21:13, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

Just added this one. My encounter occurred after leaving the Alienage, having stolen from every NPC within. Previous to this I had stolen from every NPC in the available world. It is interesting that your encounter occurred after a failed theft. I would not have remembered otherwise, but your comment reminded me that there was one person in the Alienage that I could not steal from and got a failed message. It was one of the two Tevinter Healers. It surprised me because I had 50 Cunning and max stealing skill and had never failed ever before. I would suspect they are impossible to steal from. So it seems reasonable that this encounter only occurs after you fail a theft. DocSilence 10:34, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

Zevran can also turn hostile-- I didn't have him in my active party but he popped up anyways, saying something along of lines of 'second time's the charm!'. He also dies in this, or at least to the point of being lootable and not coming back. I hadn't used him, or even talked to him much, if at all. 01:20, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

I really wasn't expecting the encounter with Taliesin to happen when it did for me. It occured after curing Alr Eamon and traveling to Denerim with him but before even starting The Landsmeet. It seems that The Landsmeet doesn't have to be completed in order for this encounter to trigger. Bandit-Behind-Bars 03:14, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

I lost Zevran in this just before going the save the princess. I feel sad that i might not be able to unlock the achievement for having recruited all companions but i have many others caracthers... — TulipVorlax 02:08, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
