The growing hostilities and religious friction between Orlais and the new elven homeland of the Dales ultimately escalated into an open war. Who precisely fired the first shot [[WrittenByTheWinners varies between sources]], with the Chantry claiming the Dalish attacked the town of Red Crossing, while the Dalish claim the Chantry sent templars in response to the expulsion of missionaries from their borders because the elves refused to convert to their religion. What is known is that after Dalish forces sacked [[HolyCity Val Royeaux]], the Chantry called for an [[UsefulNotes/TheCrusades Exalted March]] and successfully rallied neighboring nations to their aid, crushing the Dalish resistance and forcing the elves to either relocate into the [[FantasticGhetto Alienages]] or return to the nomadic lifestyle. The rift between the "[[GoingNative City Elves]]" and the "[[RacialRemnant Dalish Elves]]" grew ever wider in the following centuries since the Chantry prohibited the elves of the alienages from following their religion, forcing them to adopt the Andrastian faith.

The Third Blight had come and gone, serving only to deepen the conflict between the two empires, Tevinter and Orlesian. Eventually, even the Chantry itself was split along these lines when the "Imperial Chantry" of Tevinter broke off (notably taking a much more liberal stance on magic and slavery) and the Orlesian Chantry called for not one but four Exhalted Marches against it. All of them, however, failed to complete their objective of bringing Tevinter congregation back into a unified Chantry before the Fourth Blight put an end to them.

* FantasyCounterpartReligion: The Andrastrian Chantry is a fantasy version of the Catholic Church, except with a Gender Flip on the power dynamics with women at the center with Andraste, the martyr who founded it, its priestesses being required to be celibate, and a female leader known as The Divine. It also underwent and internal fracturing, with Tevinter having its own version of the Chantry with a male leader, rather like the split between the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church.

* BlackSite: The [[TheAlcatraz Aeonar]], a Templar prison for blood mages and collaborators whose location is a highly guarded secret among high ranked Templars and so much so its not listed anywhere in the FantasyWorldMap, though its presumed to be located within Chantry jurisdiction in Western or Southern Thedas and outside of Tevinter or Qunari control. So far, it has only been referenced in the first one during the Mage Origin when the Warden is threatened to be sent there for assisting a apostate, though its never actually visited in any of the games. Why would the Templars even need a special prison for blood mages in the first place is anyone's guess given they just use lethal force for any mage that looks at them funny, but according to the people who discuss it being sent to the Aeonar is considered AFateWorseThanDeath which raises some [[FridgeHorror disturbing implications]] about this place.
