Location: Hightown (Act I)

Did we miss anything in this section? Is there something we didn't discover? Let us know!


Overview

Act I will start up a year after your arrival in Kirkwall, so you'll no longer be indebted to Athenril or Meeran. When the game picks up, you'll be in conversation with Bartrand (#6) trying to convince him to include you in his Deep Roads expedition. He won't think much of the idea, but then you'll meet his brother Varric (the dwarf who has been narrating the story), and he'll make you a proposition: if you raise 50 sovereigns for the expedition, then he and his brother will take you on as an equal partner. See the quest entry for The Deep Roads Expedition for more information.

If you explore Hightown at night, then you won't find anybody to talk to, but you will encounter hostile groups of guardsmen pretenders. If you kill enough of these groups, then you'll receive the quest Night Lies, which will allow you to finish off the pretenders in their hideout.

After partaking of these services once, the next time you talk to Lusine, you might get an extra dialogue option to ask for the "bad girl special" (if you're female) or "something surprising" (if you're male).
