Wycome is a fishing town known for being the "most free" city of the Free Marches and the revelry capital of Thedas. Wycome is the second-greatest importer of Antivan wine after Orlais despite having less than a third the population of Val Royeaux.
In 9:25 Dragon, the various lords of the Free Marches gathered in an attempt to forge a union in the north. King Maric Theirin of Ferelden was to attend to help with the talks. When he disappeared at sea while on his way to Wycome, the Free Marches fell back into petty squabbling.
The Lavellan clan, who has settled in an unclaimed valley not far from Wycome, sends a letter to the Inquisitor asking for help against heavily-armed bandits. If the Inquisitor makes the right choices, they discover that the bandits are actually mercenaries paid for by Duke Antoine of Wycome. Though the Duke outwardly claims to be an ally of the Inquisition, he is secretly allied with the Venatori and helping them in their attempt to corrupt Wycome's human population by poisoning their wells with red lyrium. As the humans become sick, they start to blame the elves, whose wells haven't been corrupted and thus remain healthy. Wycome's nobility eventually turns their soldiers against both the Dalish and city elves in an attempt to wipe them out.
If the Inquisitor makes the right choices, Clan Lavellan can survive the ordeal and Keeper Istimaethoriel can become part of the new Wycome City Council set up to replace Duke Antoine.If the Inquisitor makes the wrong choices, Clan Lavellan is wiped out; furthermore, the Inquisiton's forces might be forced to retreat from Wycome without removing the Venatori.
Wycome is ruled by a Duke. In 9:41 Dragon, Duke Antoine is the ruler.
