Out in The Frontier of Orlais stands The Adamant Fortress, a relic of expansions long past.



Once a bastion in The Western Approach for those fighting The Blight, these abandoned fortifications have been in disrepair for too long... until now.

Set forth on your journey and join the The Reclamation, an expeditionary branch of The Grey Wardens!

Hi my imperial friend

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Some news from The Wardens, our organization military!

You know when you go on YouTube and it starts recommending random weird things to you? For some reason, the mysterious workings of the algorithm have decided that I really want to see cow hooves being trimmed. “HIDDEN PUS SURPISE”, they exclaim. “HUGE CAVITY IN COW FOOT”. I frown, mark it as not interested, go watch another video.

Then again. “COW’S ROTTEN TOE… and I’m not touching it!” The thumbnail is gross (and by thumbnail I mean the video, not the nail of the cow’s toe - actually, I mean both, that was also gross). I don’t understand why this is being recommended to me. This time I watch about thirty seconds, just out of morbid curiosity, before closing it out to listen to music instead. Why’s the algorithm so weird?

One last one - “COW WITH A BIG PROBLEM?!” - before I shut off my computer and go to bed. I don’t think about it any more. Why would I?

Then I wake up. It’s early morning, probably just before 5 - the sky is a dark desaturated blue, the moon sneaking off towards the horizon. I stare up, appreciating the beauty of the dim stars, and the gentle lullabies of owls in the trees, and the earthy scent of hay in my nose - and then realise I was meant to be in my bed. I sit up, confused.

I hear footsteps behind me. Swishing in the grass. Gentle moos. “Who’s there?” I call out.

“Sh,” they answer immediately. I try to look at them but it’s too dark. There are several people, all of their features indistinguishable in the darkness. Behind them the cows advance, a great horde of them, dense as a cloudbank. But oddly I don’t feel scared. The closest to me hands me a burlap sack and says in a low voice, “We’re collecting sharp rocks so that the cows don’t step on them.”

“There!” whispers one of the others, pointing to a tuft of grass. We move over to it and descend on the stones, a flurry of smooth action. And then another, and another. All the time the warm mass of cows moves forward behind us. Our bags rattle like a pouch of charms.

We reach a river bank, and I empty my stones out on to a large, water-polished rock that gleams like a mirror.

“Each one of those,” I hear a low voice saying, “is a cow that you’ve protected.”

I count them. One hundred and twenty nine.

I come out from the trees on the bank and it’s late afternoon all of a sudden. Golden light like it’s trapped in amber. The sunlight is bright on the leaves and on the cows’ backs. Still I can’t make out any faces.

“Here,” one says. They are sitting by a cow, trimming its hoof. “Look.” There, embedded in the soft cushion of the cow’s foot - a sharp black rock, jagged like a volcano’s tooth. They trim back the hard horn of the outer hoof, then the softer part, more gently, until finally they extract the rock. “It would have hurt for her to walk,” they say mournfully. “We do what we can.”

I go to the cows - how can I not? - and they regard me with their big black pools of eyes. They limp towards me and offer me their hooves, and I find the tools beside me in the grass before I have a chance to wonder how. I trim and cut and draw out stones until by my side there’s a pile of rocks, and all around me are forty one serene cows, eighty two big black relieved eyes, one hundred and sixty four healed hooves.

By now the sun is low in the sky. One of them comes up to me, pats me on the shoulder. “You’ve done well, my friend,” they say. “But it’s time for you to go. Your kind can’t stay here long.”

“But they need me. Let me stay. Please.”

“You can still help us, from the other world.” I realise I recognise their voice. A snippet from somewhere. Another life, perhaps - I barely remember. There was a white glowing screen, and… a bed…?

“How?” I ask.

“It’s simple, my friend.” They fix me with a sad, knowing smile. “Moove and endorse.”
