The world of Thedas is in turmoil. The Mages and Templars of the world are engaged in a vicious civil war, and the conclave of templar and mage leaders, the only hope for peace, has ended in chaos and destruction. A massive magical explosion at the conclave has not only killed the Divine of the Chantry, but the explosion has torn a hole in the very fabric that holds the world together. To add to the chaos of the now revitalized civil war, demons are now entering Thedas en masse through this hole in the world's fabric known as "The Breech" and the subsequent rifts that have opened as a result of the Breech.
You are the Inquisitor, leader of the newly formed Inquisition. Your mission: End the civil war, close the Breech, bring back order.
