In order to gain an alliance with the dwarves, you'll need to visit them in Orzammar. But to reach Orzammar, you'll have to make your way through this pass. You'll meet a few people while in the pass, but all of their quests are optional.
1 - Bounty Hunters
You'll encounter a group of bounty hunters here. They'll turn hostile when you get close enough.
2 - Starrick the Apprentice
Starrick is involved in the quest
Notice of Termination
3 - Ahren
Ahren is a merchant, but he won't sell you anything, and he's not involved in any quests.
4 - Tornas the Deserter
Tornas is involved in the quest
Dereliction of Duty
. He'll drop the ring
when you kill him.
5 - Faryn
Faryn will sell you a variety of "previously-owned" equipment, including
Knight Commander's Plate
Grandmaster Silverite Rune
(a good gift for Shale), and a
Portrait of a Goosegirl
(a good gift for Sten). Faryn is also involved in the quest
The Sword of the Beresaad
6 - Imrek
As you approach the gate (Exit A), you'll witness a messenger named Imrek trying and failing to talk his way into the city. When you reach the gate yourself, you'll have better luck, and you'll be allowed inside. However, Imrek will be outraged that a "stain on the honor of Ferelden" is getting better treatment than he is, and he'll demand satisfaction. If you want to, you can intimidate Imrek into leaving. Otherwise, you'll have to take down Imrek and his two bodyguards. None of the trio will drop anything of note.
- Entrance to the
Orzammar Commons. When you go through the entrance, you'll receive the quest "Seek out Steward Bandelor," but you won't receive a reward when you complete it (by talking to Bandelor in the Chamber of the Assembly in the
Orzammar Diamond Quarter).
- World exit.
