Lucretia's Calling9:40 DragonLucretia's Calling by dawnofwar1987
It was an unusually chill autumn night in Denerim. Throughout the countryside the farmers worried that the cooling weather would ruin their harvest. No Ferelden could ever recall an early autumn night to be this cold, not even during the brutal days of the occupation of the Orlesian Empire. A few peasants would mutter paranoid words about rogue mages, commonly referred to as apostates.
The eyes of the aforementioned peasants would turn towards the royal palace in Denerim, where Lucretia, Queen of Ferelden, and a former Circle Mage and Grey Warden reigned. Ever since the incident in Kirkwall where the apostate and former Grey Warden Anders had destroyed the Kirkwall Chantry, murdering many of the faithful, including the Grand Cleric Elthina three years earlier, there had been a growing distrust of mages throughout much of Thedas. It was fair to say that much of this brewing distrust was turned towards the reigning queen.

Orzammar pt10The Ortan Thaig was nearly another fortnight's travel in the Deep Roads for the expedition after the miners spent a couple days digging up the passage that they needed to take to reach Ortan Thaig. While the miners dug the passage clear, Aenian would lead Morrigan, Zevran, Vaughan, and Oghren all over the network of caves and tunnels to hunt down stray groups of darkspawn before they could stumble upon them by accident. Sten remained behind with the expedition to stand guard, as well as to discourage the expedition members from turning on each other, as Harrowmont's miners had expressed their fears of being killed by Bhelen's loyal supporters, namely Piotin, Myaja, and Lucjan. With the passage dug open, the expedition could continue. In that time since, they had not encountered a single darkspawn, though they did spot numerous groups of reptilian-like creatures with lamprey-like snouts, known to the dwarves as tezpadam, or more commonly known as deepstalkers.Orzammar pt10 by dawnofwar1987
Orzammar pt9The expedition had left Orzammar on the eleventh day of Aenian's visit to the city under the mountain. According to Oghren's intelligence and the map that the drunkard had in his possession the likely location of the Anvil of the Void was in the Ortan Thaig. Oghren had said that the Paragon Branka had took her entire house into the Deep Roads, likely making for Ortan Thaig. The Paragon Caridin, the inventor of the mythical Anvil of the Void was an Ortan before becoming a paragon and founding his own noble house, though he spent the majority of his time in the Ortan Thaig, for where he had been born. After consulting with Oghren and Harrowmont on the best course to take, the disgraced drunken warrior pointed out to Caridin's Cross, a major crossroad in the old dwarven empire that saw significant traffic in the days before the First Blight, named in honour of the paragon responsible for making the Anvil.Orzammar pt9 by dawnofwar1987
