Operation text Edit
A letter, written in fine hand and lightly scented, signed by Josephine:
The issue of Thom Rainier has been settled, but his deception has had far-reaching consequences. Had we not used the Grey Warden treaties, we might not have found ourselves in so awkward a position. As it is, I receive daily messages from all quarters, demanding we make reparations. We must do something.
Scribbled beneath, signed by Cullen:
I'm sorry, did we embarrass a duchess at a soiree by stepping on her gown, or was the sky torn open and Haven beset by an ancient darkspawn magister? We needed the gold. We needed the men. You would have persuaded someone to part with them, with or without the treaties. We are not making reparations for doing what we had to do. What no one else could have done.
If Wardens recruited: Don't forget, we are now allied with the Wardens. If we had no authority to conscript before, we do now.
If Wardens exiled: Don't forget, the Wardens were exiled from Southern Thedas, by the power of the Inquisition. We've seized their holdings. Anything owed them is now owed us.
Advisor suggestions Edit
Do we want the Inquisition to survive beyond Corypheus's defeat? We won't always be at war. Why alienate allies when it would take so little to appease them? Let us return what was taken under false pretense, and put these treaties aside.
Not participating in this mission.
We step forward, not back. No apologies. What happened with the Wardens gives us more authority than ever to use the treaties.
We have sent emissaries with formal apologies. We returned all that could be returned. We paid in kind for what could not. Leliana will store the Grey Warden treaties in the Skyhold archives, in remembrance of mistakes made and lessons learned.
We'll make use of the Grey Warden treaties however we can. We're so close to Corypheus; we'll need everything we can use for this final push.
