Dragon Age: Inquisition included a brand new mechanic that had never seen before in the series: the War Table. As the leader of an international organization, there are lots of politics and problems to deal with across Ferelden and Orlais. Thankfully your loyal advisors, Cullen, Leliana, and Josephine are there to help. RELATED: Dragon Age Inquisition Still Has Some Of The Best Environmental Design In Video Games

Though the War Table operations only tell stories through text, they can have a huge impact on the world of Thedas. In this guide, we explain all the consequences of your decision during the operation "Truth or Dare: Lake Celestine."

Obtaining the Operation


The "Truth or Dare" series of war table operations are initiated when you first recruit Vivienne into your party. The first one is called Truth or Dare: The Imperial Court.

This quest, Truth or Dare: Lake Celestine, is acquired once the first Truth or Dare operation is completed, as well as the story mission "In Hushed Whispers" or "Champions of the Just" (depending on whether you recruited the mages or templars).

The Problem


In the previous Truth or Dare operation, you learned about rumours in Orlais that claim Divine Justinia is still alive. They suggest that she has ordered the Inquisition to spark chaos so as to kill her opponents in the Chantry — with the added bonus of quelling the mage rebellion and the templar uprising. In Truth or Dare: Lake Celestine, you can choose to confront one of two Orlesian nobles about these rumours: the Comte de Mourier or the Marquise Courtemance.

Your Choices And The Results

The "Truth or Dare" quests branch off here in two directions, depending on which advisor you side with: Leliana or Josephine (Cullen doesn"t participate in this mission).


Time To Complete: 48 minutes Rewards: 30 Influence, Vivienne Approves Next Mission: Truth or Dare: See and Be Seen

Josephine suggests that, since the Comte de Mourier is a distant relation of the empress, that"s the lead you should pursue.

Taking her advice prompts the Comte to visit the Inquisition himself and opens up the "See and Be Seen" operation, in which he uses his influence (with a bit of help from Josephine) to quell the rumours.

Leliana notes that some of her agents are already close to Courtemance, so they can infiltrate his home to look for anything suspicious.

If you support her plan, Leliana"s agents investigate and discover that he"s been meeting with other Orlais nobles and giving them bribes to continue these rumours — in the form of busts of the late Divine Justinia or other decorative items, stuffed to the top with red lyrium.

Leliana"s agents can arrange for one of the bribes to be "accidentally" broken in public during the next operation, "A Dangerous Game," so that the real source of these rumours is seen.
