Dragon Age: Faith Misplaced
War of Shadows
While many of Kotin’s allies are dangerous and destructive, most are in fact quite subtle, sowing discord through deception and disguise. Such is quite the case with the vengeful Crannoch, former spymaster for Nicola Baranti. A proud man, Crannoch is quite angered that not only has his position been evaporated, but the influence he could have wielded in Ferelden has disappeared with the rise of the Free Wolves. With so much public attention focused on their defeat of the demon-controlled Baranti his claims to fame are now calling cards of ruin. Mentioning Baranti is dangerous for him, so now he needs new allies and plans. In the months following Nicola Baranti’s fall he began these plans and procured enough supplies to fund and befriend local thieves guilds into joining with him after large payments of poisonous and chemical weapons. How he got these supplies is anyone’s guess. With a foundation and several Ferelden thieves’ guilds granting him favor he is poised to strike against his hated foes, the Free Wolves.
