Black Fox Jerkin
+1 to all stats
During the merriest part of the night in any tavern in the lands, odds are good you’ll hear one of the many tales of the Black Fox. A scoundrel and a hero, the Black Fox’s misadventures took him and his band throughout Thedas. He’s blamed for many thefts, a few murders, a revolution, and almost a kingdom-wide civil war, but every one of his deeds were designed to thwart tyranny and oppression. The final tale of the Black Fox tells of him and his band searching for the sunken city of the elves deep in the forest of Arlathan, where he parted with this jerkin in a less than voluntary manner.
Hood’s Messenger (Shortbow)
+1 Damage per level
+2 Short bow against undead
He wields a rebel’s bow, strung tight against heartwood strained too far. It’s a tension that can’t last, but it doesn’t have to, for the cause must be won or lost while passions still burn. It’s a powerful template for revolution repeated many times across the Free Marches, but was it born on a battlefield or in rhetoric?
The “Message to the King” is where the stories usually diverge. Sometimes it’s a plea for liberty taken to a tyrant’s heart by the point of an arrow. More often, it’s carried in the clatter of sacrifice as weapons fall to a courtyard’s cobbles. It depends on the audience—the young like their victories sudden and violent, while the old prefer something more cautionary.
It may be that Hood is not so much a person as a tactic, ushered to far horizons or the grave’s embrace in order to protect conspirators. After all, how many deaths can he claim when one is the typical limit for a common man? But the tales return, time and again, across leagues and centuries. At a certain point, one hopes the name is symbolic, because allying with such a power would bring its own problems and debts.

Puzzle Ring of the Black Fox
+2 Finesse, +2 Cunning.
+4 to Pick Lock and Search
In Orlais, they say there are ten of these rings, one for each finger, and that the Black Fox was never without a single one. Some claim each represented a conquest; others: that they were reminders of secrets the he kept; still others: that they carried an inscription that, if all the rings were assembled as one, told the location of the Black Fox’s stronghold.
Many nobles in Val Royeaux have claimed to own one or more of the rings, but nobody has ever found them all. Their secret, if there is one, is safe to this day.

Carta’s Left Hand
+2 Dagger, 20% of Stun
Carta’s Right Hand
+2 Dagger, Immunity to Knockback
The dusters have a saying: “Blood or coin, the Carta always gets its cut.” When Beraht was running Dust Town, he took the saying literally. He commissioned a pair of wicked blades made by Smith House Dural. Beraht gave one to his right hand, Jarvia, and the other to his second, Karshol, so that whatever hand of the Carta you got, it’d be holding a big sodding knife. Beraht wasn’t exactly a poet.
Jarvia was killed in Dust Town during the messy succession, and Karshol turned all of Orzammar upside-down looking for her blade. Some duster struck gold finding that blade and must have been clever enough to sell it right away. Stone only knows what Karshol will do to the luckless clod who has it when he finds it.
