Speak with Maverlies to head to the basement and have the men clear the path. Loot the corpses and check the Mabari for a scroll to obtain the quest “ Adria’s Plight “. Down the hall await Darkspawn, dispose of them and check the crate then go south. Loot the crate and check the statue for Codex 173: The Great Strife . By this time a Shriek Alpha and some Shrieks should appear. The other book is Codex 108: The Howes of Amaranthine , the shelves contain a Potent Lyrium Potion Recipe , the statue gives a hint, and the torch opens a new room. The chest contains numerous items including Tingler.

Exit this room and enter the northern one to find a letter on Codex 269: Response From Rendon Howe and three crates, one containing West Hill Brandy . Go back to the previous area and go west. Prisoner Ghouls will rise from the ground but are easily taken care of with area of effect attacks. Loot the nearby Howe Correspondence for Delilah Howe’s Letters , a chest, and soldier’s corpse. Speak to the prisoners; you can release them or leave them though it affects approval ratings.

In this room, open the sarcophagi for the Key of Kiveal and other items.

If you can unlock the west door then do so, if not proceed north and skip down to the next paragraph. In the crypt are numerous Avvar sarcophagi that will loot a Trickster’s Cap and Key of Kiveal among other things. You can also examine the crypt statues for codex updates. Once you move downstairs you will get surrounded by skeletons so take out the archers first. The sack holds a Howe Bow , a great gift and bow for Nathaniel. Grab it and use the Keyhole - Kiveal then return to the previous area.

Head north to find Adria the Ghoul , who is easily controlled with stuns. Kill her and the minions. Read the letter for Codex 268: Letter to Rendon Howe , loot the knight for a Gold Earring , the Veridium Deposit for a Veridium Ore , and finally Adria for the Ring of Mastery . Advance a little further and get the news on the blocked passage, then return to the keep. You can speak with Herren to turn in your Veridium Ore if you want. Head to the east end to find Groundskeeper Samuel who brings news of Nathaniel’s sister; you obtain the companion quest “ The Howe Family “. Head off to the Turnoble Estate when you are prepared.
