Between them, a stream from a mountain spring flowed through paths carved by glaciers millenia ago.Ecology of the Arlathan Forest by Gnosticon

Below them was the Arlathan Forest, a vast area of deciduous woodland stretching as far as the eye could see. The forest floor was covered in a blanket of snowdrops, bluebells, roses and many other plant species, some of which there is simply no name for; creating a breathtaking visual display.
However, there are perils behind this beauty, carnivorous vines called blightblooms, plants that had been infected by the darkspawn taint, are drawn to the body heat of unwary travelers. Often, they would use magic to disguise themselves as a female in distress to ensnare their prey.

To Cullen, she's the living definition of the word, a shining beacon in the dark hallways of the circle tower, drawing him to her when she moves gracefully from room to room, never quite noticing his watchful gaze.

Varric stared into the fireplace at the Hanged Man as he waited for Hawke to meet with him. Ever since they had gotten back from the Deep Roads, Varric has been searching diligently for his no good, backstabbing older brother. Now he had finally gotten word that Bartrand had returned to Kirkwall and had bought a mansion in Hightown. The part that made him worry was telling Hawke.

“Hawke, I’ve got some news,” Varric said before adding, “You might want to sit down before I tell you more, though.”
