Here Lies the Abyss

It has been quiet within Skyhold; ever since the Champion and the Inquisitor met, whispers of Corypheus and his death defying ways have started to trickle throughout the castle. Hawke's disdain and mistreatment towards the mages have also been talked of, making many of the mages feel on edge. The news from meeting Warden Stroud in Crestwood only made tensions tighter - Wardens were supposed to be heroes, champions, but now their name has only brought doubt and uncertainty. And those feelings doubled with the return from the Western Approach.

With news that Grey Wardens were being influenced by this ancient darkspawn, preying on their fear of another blight and a false calling to leverage them to resorting to blood magic, everyone knows they must act quickly. They cannot allow Corypheus to raise this demon army.

And so it is with haste that the Inquisitor marches her army towards Adamant Fortress. As she and her party slice their way through the demons and Wardens, she pauses only to help her men as they scale the fortress walls. With fierce determination they plough their way to the central courtyard where they witness Erimond and Clarel performing the binding ritual. The Inquisitor implores the Grey Wardens to stop this madness - she has already spared the Wardens she can.

At this point Clarel understands Erimond's deception and orders the remaining Grey Wardens to help the Inquisition before turning to pursue the fleeing Erimond. After defeating the demons and enslaved Wardens the Inquisitor and her party move to the top of the fortress, dodging Corypheus' dragon along the way, to find Clarel and Erimond engaged in a duel. Clarel has Erimond at her mercy until the dragon attacks, mauling her and flinging her to the ground. Near death, she enacts one last attack to destroy both herself and the dragon. The force of her spell shatters the walkway and all plummet. The Inquisitor and party are saved when the she opens a rift and all fall through - but it is not the only rift she manages to open in her desperation.

Main Party

The main party will be accompanying the Inquisitor through the fade as she regains her memories. Please post below to sign up your character.
Vela Lavellan (mage)
Asmodeus Hawke (mage)
Warden Stroud (Warrior, NPC)
Solas (mage)
Valasan Lavellan (mage)

Adamant Fortress

For those agents left behind as the Inquisitor and her party enter the Fade, there is still fighting to be done. Demons are still slipping through open portals, being summoned by still-corrupt Grey Wardens. You do not need to sign up for this. Anyone can create a thread within Adamant Fortress to carry on fighting the good fight.

The Fade

Along with opening the rift that sucked her party into the fade, the Inquisitor's erratic magic has also managed to open other fade rifts in the area, pulling unsuspecting victims into the Fade. You must find your way out before the portal closes, but beware, the Fade is a tricky place, and monsters lie around every corner.

If you enter a fade thread, a member of staff may jump in at any point with the creature account with an enemy your characters must defeat. Don't forget you can also NPC demons (other than the main fear demon) to use in your threads. You don't need to sign up, just post in the thread you'd like to be a part of. (Note: you are only allowed 1 character in a Fade thread).

Other

With rifts becoming unstable and Corypheus' forces making their move, Thedas has descended into fear and chaos. In various places Red Templars have been spotted, corrupt Wardens are still out there binding themselves to demons, terror demons have whipped the local wildlife up into a frenzy, and perhaps most worrisome, reports of warped time magic. Will you survive?

These threads are not restricted by location, and can be put up anywhere on the forum. Please mark somewhere in your thread HLTA so that we know it is linked to the main event. You are more than welcome to start your own threads, or if you would like something more specific or are not sure what to do, please let a staff member know so we can put up a starter post for you in your chosen location. There is no restriction on how many participants per thread, that is up to you. Post count has been reduced to 170 words only for these event threads.

If you have started an event thread please let us know so we can list them below!

I would definitely be up for Halera hopping into a Fade thread, in Skyhold! It'd make sense. Anyone wanna go with her?

Tink: Unfortunately the Skyhold thread has all 3 member spots taken :,c but the one in The Dales is still open if she would wander down the mountains to get to it. Or you are welcome to start an open thread around Skyhold for a demon or possessed creature to hop into.

Fayt: It's not too late to join in! The fade threads in The Dales and Val Royeaux are still open to jump into and get pulled into the Fade. If you'd prefer not to physically go into the Fade though you are free to start an open thread in any location for staff to throw the creature account into!

Hmm well, if she were down there for a reason, the Dales are possible? She wouldn't just go randomly. :3
