Blackwall

Utilize the Grey Warden Treaties (30 min)

This operation appears once Blackwall is recruited.
Blackwall has in his possession Grey Warden treaties, which the Inquisition might be able to use to obtain the resources it needs to improve itself. Josephine can be put in charge of invoking the treaties in as diplomatic a way as possible.
Connections N/A N/A 49 Gold, 3x Iron

Conscript for the Inquisition (60 min)

Blackwall was recruited, Haven was destroyed
The appearance of an ancient darkspawn magister makes the Grey Warden treaties more relevant to the Inquisition. What you choose to obtain with the treaties is up to you. Cullen will use them to bolster Inquisition forces, Josephine uses them to ask for donations from noble allies, and Leliana will use them to gain information for the Inquisition.
Connections 1 Round Pommel 1 Round Pommel 1 Round Pommel

The Consequences of Blackwall’s Lie (60 min)

Saw Blackwall on the gallows in Val Royeaux, used the Grey Warden treaties before
Blackwall’s revelation has made some of your allies upset, as the “conscription” done by the Inquisition was based on a lie. Josephine believes reparations should be made—this will get the Inquisition nothing but may appease your allies. Cullen prefers a more practical approach; based on your actions at Adamant, the Wardens are now your allies, or banished from Southern Thedas and their assets seized by the Inquisition. Either way, the commander believes this entitles you to use the treaties with impunity. Allowing him to handle it will give the Inquisition more gold.
