Visit the Elven Alienage in Lowtown at day and speak with Arianni. Agree to help her find her son to start the quest 'Wayward Son' . Head to The Gallows and speak with Thrask who will guide you to meeting Samson. Likewise, you could approach Vincento in the Lowtown Bazaar. Enter Lowtown at night and track down Samson. After gaining information from Samson head to the Docks at night. Make your way down to Arthuris’s Private Dock and go through the door.

Disarm the trap - simple and fight off the Sailors and Marines. There is a crate to the west and another up the stairs in the room. Head towards the other set of steps making sure to disarm the trap - simple . Enter the eastern room to find a crate then enter the northern room. Defeat the enemies and be wary of the trap - simple in the middle of the room. Search Captain Reiner for Bloodletter ; search the Abomination for Thrask’s Letter which starts the quest An Errant Letter ; lastly the chest at the end for Hideout Location Map .

Enter Arthuris's Private Dock and fight your way through and loot the marked chest (right).

Since you’re at the Docks at night you could always take the Disused Passage for some extra experience and make your way to a shop. Follow the path south defeating the Coterie that attack you until you reach Bonny Lem. Go around the corner from the shop to find Remains of the Outlaw "Half-Braid" Silsam to start a quest.

Head on over to Darktown and find Danzig at the bottom of the Abandoned Mines. Talk to him to eventually start a fight. Loot Danzig's corpse for **Map to the Wounded Coast** . Leave Darktown and head to The Wounded Coast, take the southern path once you get there. Go west, slaying Tal-Vashoth, until you need to go south to reach the Slaver Caverns. Loot the nearby **corpse** and grab the **spindleweed** ahead. Open the **sack** to the south then proceed east where you will find more Slavers.

Defeat them then head to the far east room to find a corpse , barrel , and deep mushroom . Head to the northwest to find a chest - standard , two crates , and a corspe along the way. As you proceed north you find the Slavers holding Feynriel captive. There are numerous ways to go about the situation but most lead to battle. Focus on Varian first then the rest of the Slavers. Afterwards you can either send Feynriel to the Circle or let him join the Dalish. Head north along the path to find a pile of bones then check the western alcove near the exit for a chest holding Alchemist’s Protective Handguards . Return to Arianni to inform her Feynriel’s decision to receive a Runed Silverite Ring .

You'll find Danzig at the bottom of the Abandoned Mines. Talk with him to start a fight.

An Errant Letter
This quest simply entails you returning the letter to Thrask. You can receive 5 sovereign if you extort him but that leads to negative group responses.
