Dragon Age Origins Riddles
“The great stone-hand ended up being one thing of a mystery. One assumes it really is a bit broken removed from a bigger entire. If that's the case, judging by how big is that one hand, I imagine the whole sculpture to be... well, large enough to require the utilization of obscenities to describe it. Thus I have one concern: where may be the remaining statue? It is difficult to imagine exactly how something so huge could go lacking. — From A Journey through Dales by Lord Horace Medford, "Adventurer"
The Dead Hand is amongst the Landmarks in the flatlands with an elven shrine beneath it.
Archer and Pillar Puzzle
