Dragon Age: Inquisition.


The Inquisitor, Hawke and several of their companions are trapped in this section of the fade during the battle between the Grey Wardens and the Inquisition at Adamant Fortress. Trapped in this section of the Fade, they discover that this is the domain of a Fear demon of phenomenal size and power; the Nightmare. The Inquisitor also discovers this is where the Nightmare sealed their memories of what occurred during the Conclave at the Temple of Sacred Ashes.
