This quest is automatically triggered after [[The Wrath of Heaven]] is completed. You awaken in a room in [[Haven]], where a young elven girl bringing medical supplies will walk in. After apologizing profusely she will explain that [[Cassandra]] wanted to be made aware of when the Inquisitor woke up and will immediately run off.

This quest is automatically triggered after [[The Wrath of Heaven]] is completed. The [[The Inquisitor]] will awaken in a room in [[Haven]], where a young Elven girl bringing medical supplies will walk in. After apologizing profusely she will explain that [[Cassandra Pentaghast]] wanted to be made aware of when the Inquisitor woke up and will immediately run off.
 
The house is almost bare of anything noteworthy, bar a [[Codex entry: Patient Observations|note]] with some details about your recovery after sealing the Breach. If the [[Flames of the Inquisition]] DLC has been installed, there is a box of 'special deliveries' containing a class specific [[Flames of the Inquisition Weapons Arsenal|weapon]] and [[Flames of the Inquisition Armor|armor]] 'of the Dragon'.

===Meet Cassandra in the chantry===
+
===Three Days Later===
When you leave the house you are greeted by an honor guard that leads towards the chantry. It is possible to explore most of Haven at this point, but it is advisable to wait until after you have met Cassandra when the crowds will have dispersed and the whole area is available to explore.
+
On the desk is a note containing the [[Codex entry: Patient Observations]] (Day One) which can be read for XP. If the player has bought either the [[Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition]] or [[Dragon Age: Inquisition Inquisitor's Edition|Inquisitor's Edition]], the [[Flames of the Inquisition Armor|bonus content]] will be in a chest nearby.
  +
Additionally it will also prove wise to look through the box of supplies that the elf dropped as it contains some healing items.
   
Proceed to the chantry where you will hear Cassandra along with [[Leliana]] arguing with Grand Chancellor [[Roderick (Inquisition)|Roderick]]. You can have your say in the argument but after more arguing with Roderick, Cassandra, acting on [[Divine Justinia V|Divine Justinia]]'s final orders, declares the Inquisition reborn. [[Codex entry: The First Inquisition]] is unlocked.
+
Outside, a large crowd of people ranging from soldiers to village peasants and Chantry members will obstruct most paths, save for one leading to the [[Haven Chantry]]. None of the merchants will be willing to do business and will instead inform the Inquisitor that Cassandra wishes to speak with them, but behind the first building to the left is a basket with loot, and behind the cottage to the right is a chest. Elfroot grows behind the buildings here as well.
   
===Rebirth of the Inquisition===
+
Past the crowd and up the stairs, you can loot a sack next to the Singing Maiden, another sack and a chest among the tents in front of the Chantry, and a basket to the left beyond the Chantry entrance. If you head to the right of the Chantry, you can bypass the crowd blocking the stairs and gain access to a group of cottages. One has a chest and a note with a Codex entry, and in another is a book with another entry.

After a cutscene you are placed outside the chantry and obtain the quest [[Haven's Best and Brightest]]. It is now possible to explore all of Haven, speak to the npc's and complete several tutorial-type side quests there.
 
   
To proceed with the main quest, re-enter the chantry. In the following cutscene Cassandra introduces you to the three advisors: [[Cullen]], commander of the Inquisition's Forces, [[Josephine]], its ambassador and overseer of Connections, and Leliana, the spymaster and purveyor of Secrets. When discussing the next objectives for the Inquisition, you are given a quick tutorial of how to use the [[war table]] with the operation to [[Scout the Hinterlands]]. You are given the option of traveling immediately to the [[Hinterlands]] and following up on the quests there or exiting back to Haven. Leliana suggests visiting [[Giselle|Mother Giselle]], a Mother of the Chantry operating in the Hinterlands near [[Redcliffe]], to begin laying the groundwork for approaching the remaining members of the Chantry.
+
Inside the Chantry, there are more Codex entries: two in the main hall (a book and a scroll), one in a side bedroom off to the right, and another in a room on the left. Lootable containers include one basket at the end of the main hall to the right and another down the stairs off the anteroom to the left. Continue along this passage to find two more Codex entries, an unlockable door with three more books and a small chest, and a small jail area. There's a chest and a Codex entry here, and another small chest inside one cell and a letter inside another.
   
Additionally, you are given a number of quests aimed towards gaining allies, agents, power and influence - [[Lost Souls]] and [[Vigilance on the Coast]], the war table operations [[Hard in Hightown 3: Varric's Revenge]], [[Address a Nobleman's Concerns]], [[The Teyrn of Highever]], [[Scout the Storm Coast]], [[Deal with Relatives of the Trevelyans]] (human Herald only), [[Contact Clan Lavellan]] (elf Herald only), [[The Carta Gets Its Cut]] (dwarf Herald only), [[Contact with the Valo-Kas Mercenaries]] (Qunari Herald only), [[Gather Coin (Haven)]], [[Rescue Soldiers Missing in Ferelden]] and [[Investigate Serault]] if you have completed [[Dragon Age: The Last Court]]. Numerous codex entries are unlocked (see the list below).
+
Inside the Chantry Cassandra along with her friend [[Leliana]] will be arguing with Grand Chancellor [[Roderick (Inquisition)|Roderick]]. A rumor has spread through the people of Haven that the Inquisitor is the Herald of [[Andraste]], which Cassandra supports based on providence, the fact that they were exactly who the people needed when and where they were needed.
  +
[[File:The Inquisition is reborn - the charter nailed on Haven Chantry.png|thumb|220x220px|The Inquisition is reborn - the charter nailed on the door of Haven Chantry]]
   
===The Hinterlands===
+
The Inquisitor can agree to her assessment for slight approval from Cassandra or dismiss it for negative approval. After more arguing with Roderick, Cassandra, acting on Divine Justinia's final orders, declares the Inquisition reborn. Roderick storms out, and the Inquisitor can show willingness or unwillingness to help the two Hands, which results in approval gains and losses with Cassandra respectively.
Arriving at the camp, Chief Scout [[Lace Harding]] will brief the Inquisitor on Mother Giselle, as well as [[Dennet]], Redcliffe's old horsemaster.
 
   
Following the path down the hill from the camp, you will have to clear the area of the two warring factions, the mages and the templars. Once the crossroads are cleared you will have acquired several codexes (see the list below). Next, Mother Giselle will talk to you and suggest that you visit [[Val Royeaux]]. Following this conversation, you must speak with Corporal [[Vale]] and aid him in securing the crossroads. Fully speaking to him will give you markers towards the quests [[Hunger Pangs]], [[In the Elements]], and [[Shallow Breaths]], as well as a tutorial on Power and its related [[codex entry: The Inquisition]]. The Inquisitor can then proceed to the refugee hunter to obtain Hunger Pangs and to [[Whittle]] to get In The Elements.
+
Scenes will play as Leliana sends forth messenger birds, Cullen nails a charter to the Chantry door, and people begin taking up arms. Standing before their following, the Inquisitor is adorned in new armor and turns to face the Breach above. The title "Dragon Age Inquisition" appears on a blank screen as the prologue comes to a close.
   
To progress the quest from this point, you require 4 Power which can be earned in ways as described in the codex &mdash; seal [[Fade]] rifts, complete quests and establish camps in the Hinterlands.
+
===Rebirth of the Inquisition===
  +
After the cut-scene the Inquisitor can explore Haven, or go to the Chantry once more to advance the story. Here, Cassandra reintroduces them to [[Cullen]], commander of the Inquisition's Forces, [[Josephine]], its ambassador and overseer of Connections, and [[Leliana]], the spymaster and purveyor of Secrets.
   
===Val Royeaux===
+
Cassandra surmises that the Herald's Mark needs more power to close the Breach. Leliana states that they should seek out the rebel mages to boost the Mark's power. Cullen disagrees, stating they should appeal to the [[Templar Order]], to suppress the Breach's output and weaken it to a state that the Inquisitor can close, before Leliana cuts him stating it is "pure speculation." Regardless, Josephine notes that the Chantry has denounced the Inquisition and specifically the Herald of Andraste. As such, they lack the political power to approach either group for help.
[[File:Lucius-and-Barris-at-Val-Royeaux.png|thumb|300px|Lord Seeker Lucius and Ser Barris confront the Inquisition.]]
 
Once you have the required power travel back to Haven. Outside the chantry is an angry mob, they are harassing some mages and blaming them for causing the Breach. Cullen intercedes and tells the mob to get back to work. Talk to Cullen and High Chancellor Roderick about the situation, then head on into the war room to unlock Val Royeaux.
 
   
Travel to [[Val Royeaux]] and speak to the Inquisition scout who informs you that the templars are waiting for you, then continue on to the main square of the [[Summer Bazaar]]
+
Leliana suggests visiting [[Giselle|Mother Giselle]], a Mother operating in the [[Hinterlands]] near Redcliffe, to begin laying the groundwork for approaching the remaining members of the Chantry. The Inquisitor must go there and relieve the refugees chafing under the reignited [[Mage-Templar War]] and prevent anything bad happening to Giselle.
and approach Revered Mother [[Hevara]]. Lord Seeker [[Lucius Corin|Lucius]] appears, taunting the Chantry and the Inquisition. He dismisses any idea of allying with the Inquisition against the Breach and withdraws all Templar forces from Val Royeaux, leaving it defenseless. The war table operation [[The Chantry Remains]] becomes available at this point.
 
   
Taking a few steps when you have control again will result in an arrow being fired into the ground from a hidden source. Investigating the arrow unlocks the companion quest [[A Friend of Red Jenny]]. On the other side of the square by the exit is a messenger, who gives you an invitation that unlocks the companion quest [[The Imperial Enchanter]].
+
===The War Table===
  +
In order to unlock the Hinterlands the Inquisitor must learn how to issue mission directives from the [[War Table]]. A few options are available, but "Scouting the Hinterlands" requires the 1 point of Power the Inquisition currently has. Sending in Leliana's scouts is the only option, and it unlocks the Hinterlands for exploration. Feel free to explore the [[War table|miscellaneous missions]] and determine the best Advisor to send on these missions while the Inquisitor explores the new region. When done, bring up the Hinterlands on the World Map and travel there, bringing Cassandra, Varric, and Solas along for the ride.
   
{{Blockquote|'''Important''': ''If you are attempting to recruit all possible agents, [[Belle]] is available beside the stage. She will disappear if you leave without talking to her.''}}
+
===The Hinterlands===
  +
Arriving at the camp, [[Harding]] will brief the Inquisitor on Mother Giselle, as well as [[Dennet]], Redcliffe's old horsemaster.
   
When you exit the city, you'll be met by the rebel mage leader Grand Enchanter [[Fiona]] who invites you to [[Redcliffe Castle]]. The visit to Val Royeaux unlocks several codex entries, see the list below.
+
Following the path down the hill from the camp, the Inquisitor will have to clear the area of the two warring factions: Mages, consisting of a Spellbinder and some sellswords; and the Templars who show up after. Both groups have four members, and the Templars have a Templar Defender and two Archers. Take down the ranged fighters with Winter's Grasp and Long Shot while Cassandra draws the ire of the melee fighters. Don't be shy about using Healing Potions, as you can restock them by returning to the camp after the battle.
   
===Back in Haven===
+
With the Crossroads secure, Mother Giselle will talk to you. She will state that many of the clerics are simply grandstanding when they denounce the Inquisition, and that others are simply going along with it. She suggests to go to [[Val Royeaux]] and face their accusations head-on. While it will not win their support immediately, she states that all the Inquisitor has to do is to make even a few of them doubt their unanimous assertion, to weaken their unified voice against the Inquisitor and peel support away from the grandstanders.
Return to Haven to discuss the outcome of the visit to Val Royeaux with the advisers. It is clear that with regards to alliances, you now have two options: either to approach the [[In Hushed Whispers|mages]] or the [[Champions of the Just|templars]]. The war table operation [[The Cult of Andraste]] unlocks at this point.
 
   
Before you can get away Leliana approaches you and reveals that her spies have located a [[Grey Warden]] in the Hinterlands, going by the name [[Blackwall]]. She asks that you attempt to contact the Warden, which unlocks the companion quest [[The Lone Warden]] and the codex entry [[codex entry: The Grey Wardens (Inquisition)|The Grey Wardens]]. Another companion quest, [[The Captain of the Chargers]], is given, which rounds off all the available companion recruitments up to this point. Finally, the codex entry [[codex entry: The Wrath of Heaven|The Wrath of Heaven]] is obtained as the quest ends.
+
Explore the Hinterlands, completing quests and acquiring another 4 Power, which is required to secure entry into Val Royeaux. The easiest way to do this is to follow Harding's suggestion and make your way to Dennet, at the Redcliffe Farms in the northwest of the map, avoiding the fighting as best you can and establishing new camps along the way to rest and resupply. Talking to Dennet will secure your first mount, a Ferelden Forder.

After you are accosted by Revered Mother Hevara, Lord Seeker Lucius appears, taunting the Chantry and the Inquisition after his thug knocks her out.

+
*1,359 XP
+
Returning to Haven, the Inquisitor consults with the advisors. [[Josephine]] recommends approaching the mages, while Cullen insists on approaching the templars in spite of the Lord Seeker's denunciation. He does acknowledge that the Inquisition lacks the power to approach them safely, and should build out its influence. Finally, [[Leliana]] mentions that the Grey Wardens of Ferelden and Orlais have disappeared without a trace, and the timing is curious with the Breach. She directs you to a Warden named [[Blackwall]], sighted in the Hinterlands near Lake Luthias. The quest completes as new options become available.
