In matters like this, I look to Genitivi's writings first. Not that he is any bloody use, but he's reliably an indicator of the worst possible thing to do.

The Well-Read Pig-Farmer is from Tevinter and has apparently married well for a pig-farmer. She implies that she was formerly part of the Magisterium. She may be called upon to offer advice to the Marquis of Serault.

Description Edit

"Na via lerno victoria, as they say in Tevinter. Of course there haven't been many victories lately, but if you read Issiker's account of the Valarian Engagements, there are some really intricate strategies - sorry, did you want to buy a pig?" She married well for a pig-farmer. She gets around. Her accent is Tevinter. What an interesting woman.

Bugs Edit

  • There is no difference between success or failure when trying to gain a favor.
  • If the Well-Read Pig-Farmer becomes the Marquis' accomplice and is then replaced by the Purveyor of Teas, her icon will remain in the accomplice list but the game will normally consider only the Purveyor of Teas as the current accomplice.
