But Varys has never been shy about the fact that his loyalty lies with the people. Last season, Varys laid out his philosophy when Dany grilled him about his loyalties, asking him why he served both her father, Aerys Targaryen, and Robert Baratheon, who overthrew him. I was sold as a slave and carved up as an offering. When I was a child, I lived in alleys, gutters, abandoned houses. You wish to know where my true loyalties lie? Not with any king or queen, but with the people. Approach him for a brief interaction. Moving on, The Inquisitor and Dorian will end up in a large cavern of sorts.
A couple of zealots are blocking the way north and south, and there is a drawbridge to the west that is raised, for the moment. The remaining members of the party can be found in prison cells to the north. Which cell they will be in, depends on the party member. The first party member rescued will inform The Inquisitor that the Elder One is the real threat, not Alexius.
They will also explain that the Empress of Orlais was assassinated and the Elder One has a demon army at his disposal. The second party member rescued will say that they overheard the guards saying that Alexius never leaves the throne room. Exit the cells and head down the southern path. At the end, the party will find Fiona in a cell and a scene begins. She reveals that they are now in Harvestmere Dragon , a full year into the future. She also mentions that Leliana is somewhere in the castle. Head back upstairs, and the sound of the drawbridge lowering will be heard. A group of Venatori will be guarding the newly opened path.
There is a supply cache just past them, so don't be afraid to use potions if necessary. In fact, there are several supply caches throughout the castle, so don't feel the need to hoard supplies. Head up the stairs to reach the Guard Barracks where you can find the aforementioned supply cache and A Prayer to the New God in addition to various items of loot. There is a locked door to the right. Of particular interest is A Guard's Journal in the left room, which gives some indication of Alexius' paranoia and what life is currently like in Ferelden. Continue down the corridor and as you approach the door on the left another torturer will be heard working on Leliana.
Open the door to begin a scene.
T'Sargoth 3: Whispers of the Past
Pick up the Prison Key by the dead torturer. Proceed and you'll emerge in the drawbridge room, except much higher up. Enter the next door and the mark will begin to glow, indicating a fade rift is up ahead. After closing the rift, turn the gear to raise the gate and proceed up the stairs to the Docks. Move ahead quickly to witness a couple of mages sacrifice themselves for the Elder One, and two lesser shades will spawn in their place. There is another supply cache nearby.
Move up more stairs to emerge in the Courtyard. After taking in the scenery, proceed up one of the sets of stairs and another fade rift appears. Remember that a mage can use Dispel to prevent any demon from spawning, which certainly helps on higher difficulties. If you have a rogue in your party and don't want to fight at all, you can use stealth , command your followers to disengage and just run through the courtyard. The enemies won't follow you into the castle.
The party will finally enter another part of the castle, the Upper Royal Wing. Upon entering a corridor, enter the first door on the right. Connor may be here in front of the fireplace, but he will commit suicide to avoid becoming an abomination.

Alexius' Journal can be found on a desk directly across the corridor, and it hints at what exactly is wrong with Felix. The party will come to a larger room which contains another supply cache. The pyramid shaped loot box contains the Circle of Magi banner.
Proceed down the stairs to the Lower Royal Wing. The radar will indicate many enemies in the next room, but it's not as bad as it seems. There is a spellbinder and two marksmen inside, as well as a few demons. The demons will attack the marksmen, but won't attack the spellbinder. The marksmen will likely take out demons, but will ultimately succumb to them.
On the radar, the demons will take up positions in the room once the marksmen are dead. This is the party's cue to move in. A second wave of demons spawns from the fade rift. Once all the fighting is done, locate the loot that the spellbinder dropped, as it will contain a red lyrium shard. Approach the shard door to the throne room and the party is denied access, for the time being.
Dorian comments and now four more of these will need to be found. The shards are all being held by spellbinders one of which has already been wiped out , and the quest markers indicate where they are on the map. There is no proper path to take here, but the following is efficient enough. The second spellbinder is on the current level, in a room off the NW corner. As the party approaches the room, one of them will remark that the Venatori are too busy praying to be guarding the room.
Indeed, all the enemies are facing away from the entrance, allowing the party to get the jump on them. The spellbinder is up a small landing, almost in the middle of the room. He is flanked by two marksmen, and two gladiators guard the entrance.
And not surprisingly, my eyes began to open in a new way to the world around me. Then one morning, God sent me a precious gift. As I sat in the garden with my morning coffee, a glint of bright orange caught my eye in the back of the acre deep yard. I set my cup down and walked out to investigate.
As I approached one of the large boulders set on the lawn, I was amazed to discover a single, perfect orange hibiscus blossom laying on top of the boulder, as if it had been carefully placed there. I picked up the blossom and suddenly felt raindrops falling on me. Startled, I look up at the sky, and sure enough, as I looked straight up into the cloudless blue sky, I saw tiny raindrops falling toward me, lightly covering my face with sprinkles.
