astarium_icon_small.png Astrariums are Tevinter puzzle devices in sets of threes in different Regions. Solving the three puzzles within a location will open up a special vault containing higher tier gear. They allow you to unlock the secrets of the Heavens. Recreate the image of a constellation by connecting the stars without making the same line twice.


"Regarding your inquiry regarding the so-called "Astrariums", it is our considered belief that these are relics from a cult that existed in the pre-Andrastian era of the Tenvinter Imperium. Now, that would be considered a cult in a sociaty that worshipped the Old Gods? An order of magisters who believed in the destruction of the Magisterium, the governing body of the Imperium that determines which mages are and are not given the "Magister" Title.The members of this order wished to return to an earlier period where dreamers ruled, and evidence indicates they operated throughout Tevinter, though primarily in the frontier areas. There they would lock away their secrets, caches of treasure, and perhaps even secret meeting places (thought we have no way of knowing for certain), unlockable only through knowledge of ancient astronomy - a practice that was, we understand, rather out of fashion in the late Tevinter Period.
According to our investigations, each of the Astrariums could point to the secret cache if one knew the three constellations that mapped to each device present a the site. Connect the Dweomers in the correct configuration, and it will be revealed. Many of these relics were sought out by Andrastian cultists in the early Divine age (the Order of Fiery Promise in particular) and destroyed. Why? Because they believed the Astrariums held together the Veil, and destroying them would destroy the Veil and thus the world. Such is the way of cults of any kind that the true reason for what they do could never truly be understood by modern minds.
-- From a letter written by Magister Pelidanus, Head of the Corial ORder, 5:12 Exalted"
