Acquisition[edit | edit source]
Available after completion of the operation The Cult of Andraste.
Operation text[edit | edit source]
The runes discovered in the mountain passage during the recent search are of a type never seen before: neither Tevinter nor elven, and perhaps dating back to the time of Andraste herself. There are few who might be able to translate the script, and the benefit of doing so is unknown.

I know of several Antivan scholars who can be discreet. They would happily translate the runes for us.

We have agents with magical knowledge and the means to acquire texts. Let us work on this ourselves.

Results[edit | edit source]
Interestingly, the runes are Alamarri in origin, belonging to the tribes that inhabited Ferelden almost a thousand years ago. What is of greater interest, however, is that none of the runes translate intelligibly, meaning it is all in code. According to the translators, a reference to the “Guardian” also indicates “an island off the northern coast.” Most curious. I will continue translation efforts in the hope we can narrow this down further.
