Leliana: "The Game is one thing—we go back and forth between nobles, and the authorities turn a blind eye. It is... amusement. But these papers... if the seals were Orlesian military, then bringing them to Ferelden is treason. Marjolaine, there is no blind eye for treason. They hang you in the street."
Marjolaine: "My poor pretty thing. Lost in a strange place."

Treason is a serious crime against a sovereign or the realm or kingdom as a whole, including rebellion, regicide, oathbreaking, and espionage. The punishment for treason is death, usually by public execution. If expedient, a traitor may instead be spared in exchange of hostages or by being forced to join the Grey Wardens.

Like oathbreaking, the nature of treason is not an absolute one and is subject to political machinations. It can often depend on whether said treason is successful. While a defeated rebel will be condemned and executed as a traitor, a victorious one will be in power and will merely receive the epithet usurper.

In the city of Denerim, those who broke the law or are accused of treason are confined to the Arl of Denerim's dungeon.
