Wilhelm's Cellar is the surprisingly expansive basement of Wilhelm Sulzbacher's home in the village of Honnleath.


The mage Wilhelm Sulzbacher used this cellar as his laboratory, conducting experiments with Shale and demons, with some brewing on the side.

When the village is overrun by darkspawn during the Fifth Blight, Wilhelm's son Matthias manages to maintain part of Wilhelm's magical defenses to keep surviving villagers safe from marauding darkspawn.
