Wending Wood[edit | edit source]

Conversation with Velanna in 'Abandoned Dalish Camp' in Wending Wood, during The Righteous Path.[edit | edit source]

  1. You... you will never take me alive./(Dalish Elf) (Coughs)How can the Dalish hope to revive our past glory when we slaughter each other like animals?
    • Did you really think you could escape from me?/(Dalish Elf) You started it. Disapproves (-2)
      • I just wish to talk. (to 2)
      • Gladly. (Attack)
    • I'm not going to kill you.
      • Not yet. I wish to talk. (to 2)
      • No, you must be brought to justice. (Attack)
      • On second thought, maybe not. Say your prayers. (Attack)
    • I don't intend to. Now let's finish it./(Dalish Elf) This isn't slaughter, this is deserved. Now let's finish it. (Attack)
  2. (Laugh)Talk.
    • The humans are not to blame for what happened here. (to 3)
    • The darkspawn were playing the humans against the elves. (to 3)
    • On second thought, maybe not. Say your prayers. (Attack)
  3. You expect me to believe that? What of the weapons, or my sister's disappearance?
    • The weapons here were planted by darkspawn. (to 4)
    • The humans can't be responsible. The darkspawn killed them. (to 4)
  4. That would mean the darkspawn killed my people and took my sister! or
    If it wasn't the humans who killed my people and took Seranni, are you saying the darkspawn did it?
    • I found this trinket on a darkspawn. Approves (+3) (available only if you have acquired the trinket before this conversation)
    • Yes. (to 5)
    • I'm surprised it took you this long to realize that. (to 6)
  5. Why would the darkspawn do this?
    • I don't know, but I'm going to find out.
      • After you killed all those people? And attacked me?
        • Oh, all right. Come with me. (to 8)
        • (Attack)Not so fast. You need to pay for your crimes. (Attack)
      • Fine, but I'm watching you. (to 8)
      • No. You're a murderer and deserve to die. (Attack)
    • Curiosity? Malice? (to 6)
    • They make females into broodmothers.
      • Let me help. (to 7)
      • You? By yourself? (to 6) Disapproves (-3)
  6. It doesn't matter. What matters is that Seranni may still be alive. I must go to her. or
    No... no, I musn't think like that. She's still alive. I know she is. I have to go to her!
    • Let me help. (to 7)
    • (Attack)Not so fast. You need to pay for your crimes. (Attack)
    • Good luck to you, then. (Velanna leaves)
  7. You... you want to find Seranni? W-why?
    • No one deserves to suffer at the hands of the darkspawn. Approves (+3) (to 8)
    • Why not? Are you coming? (to 8)
    • She's with the darkspawn, and I need to kill them. Approves (+2) (to 8)
  8. My name is Velanna, if you care for such things. Do you know where the darkspawn might dwell?
    • Tunnels, most likely.
    • I'm not sure. Do you have any ideas?

If Velanna joins the party, Approves (+4) is the base approval.

Conversation with Keenan in the Silverite Mine, during The Righteous Path.[edit | edit source]

(only occurs when swearing to Keenan to tell his wife his last words)

  1. "He wanted to make the world a better place"? What an insipid line. Is that really supposed to make her feel better about his death?

    • You must be so much fun at funerals. Disapproves (-1)
    • I'm not with her. Disapproves (-6)

    • We can share stories. They belong to everyone.
    • They're just stories. They don't mean anything. Disapproves (-3)
    • I'm sorry the humans stole your fairy tales. There, happy? (human Wardens) Disapproves (-3)

      • Make your own stories. Approves (+2)(ends conversation)

Are you at all curious about my exile? (part of Velanna's Exile)[edit | edit source]

Conversation after initiating above said quest.

    • Yes, very. (to 3)
    • Not really. Disapproves (-10) (ends conversation)

  1. You make me out to be some kind of shrill harpy!
    • That's because you are a shrill harpy. (to 3)
    • My mistake. Yelling is clearly out of character for you. (to 3)
    • Fine, just tell me about your exile. Disapproves (-2) (to 3)
  2. The others were afraid. Keeper Ilshae said that if I wanted to fight the shemlen, I would fight them alone.
    • Are the humans worth so much trouble? (to 4)
    • And you left, even though it hurt you? (to 4)
    • But you didn't go alone. (to 5)
  3. Thus I called Ilshae a coward, and I turned away from the clan.
    • Did others follow you? (to 5)
    • Do you regret what you said? (to 5)
    • What about Seranni? (to 5)
