[[WMG: The Archdemons are trapped behind massive Eluvians in the Deep Roads.]]
So going with the "the Archdemons are tainted Creators" theory --
* In DA:O, a Dalish Warden's first encounter with Darkspawn is through an Eluvian, when Tamlen strongly implies seeing the Archdemon themself through the glass. Later, the Darkspawn flood the ruins. This suggests that the Darkspawn have overrun the Crossroads. Fourteen years later, the Crossroads are deserted. This has never been expanded on or explained in any of the games.
* The Archdemons are *clearly* in the Deep Roads, but [[spoiler:Solas explicitly states they're banished to the other side of the Fade]].
* This doesn't add up, except for one thing -- in a game where Lavellan romances Solas, Cole refers to someone "sleeping" behind mirrors that need to be awoken.
* Trespasser establishes that there are [[spoiler:Eluvians in the Deep Roads]].
* There's also another question -- the Deep Roads are utterly, utterly overrun by Darkspawn to the point where there's only two Dwarven kingdoms, one of which is seriously isolated. So how is it it takes centuries at a time for Darkspawn to be able to find an Archdemon even though the Archdemons are singing to them? That's the longest game of Marco Polo I've ever heard of.
* So the answer is this -- the Darkspawn don't find an Archdemon and wake it. The Darkspawn find massive eluvians in the Deep Roads and spend centuries searching for the key to activate it. Only when the key is found can the Archdemon "awaken", surge through, and the Blight can properly begin.
* And expanding on the above, one of those keys could be Solas's wolf bone necklace, a distinct but strangely undiscussed prop in DA:I...

[[WMG: If Calpernia survives, she will be recruited as s spymaster for Dorian's and Tilani's progressive Magisterium faction.]]
The Lucerni faction is probably rather vulnerable, as evidenced by Mae bringing heat down on her during the short War Table chain concerning her. To see that they aren't offed by more brutal methods by their political opponents, they could recruit Corypheus's old spymaster. Calpernia comes off as a bit of a MinionWithAnFInEvil, missing the whole memo about Corypheus being a magister from a period of time where slave abuse was so egregious that they were openly seen as blood magic reservoirs, and can be convinced to abandon him if she's the ascendant "nemesis" character. Dorian could take a (potential) page out of the Inquisitor's playbook (if they were the pragmatic recruit-the-captured-enemy type) and bring her over to take part in a truly progressive cause in the Imperium.

In the fourth game, [[spoiler: Solas/Fen'Harel]] will instead occupy a role similar to the Architect in the plot: a third party wildcard element that you may or may not ally with, and may or may not be able to convince to work with you. The true antagonists will be the Evanuri, the elven god-like beings who were so drunk with power that they murdered the only one among them sane enough to clean up their excesses when they harmed others. The Veil must fall to enact Spoilery Character's plan to eliminate them, but what happens afterwards depends on how you handle Spoilery Character.

Their relationship status (lover/friend/foe) and with the Inquisitor and fate of the Inquisition (Scaled down/"disbanded") will be two factors in how Spoilery Character regards the current world, much like how previous actions concerning the Quarians in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' were a factor in feasibility of Geth reconciliation in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.

*** Likely jossed. Leliana was suspicious about Morrigan's presence during the [[spoiler: Halamshiral Ball in "Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts"]]

** Jossed. Evangeline doesn't even show up in person, other than on a War Table mission and it's entirely possible to let her die if you make the wrong decision.
*** Not jossed. There is no wrong decision in that short War Table mission chain, there is only "not doing the war table mission in the first place". There are some potential ways that Rhys and Eva can extricate themselves from the predicament they're in without Inquisition intervention.

*** [[spoiler:The war table op can't be "botched", merely not ever carried out. It is still possible that Rhys might extricate Evangeline from the Red Templars without Inquisition assistance.]]

*This also has some support by the nature of how she rallies the Inquisition in its darkest hour: Song. Andraste was known to be a beautiful songstress; the ghost of her childhood friend in the Temple of Sacred Ashes attests to this. Giselle rallied the Inquisition with a rendition of "The Dawn Will Come", and it ''worked''.
