I had a thought while I was playing dragon age inquitision.
There are peices of dialogue with characters where they ask you about your beliefs (Like BlackWall, Cassandra,Varric). And while I still play my characters 'on the fence’- it was Varric’s conversation that made me decide to make my elf at the very least ‘open' minded to belief in the Maker.
Solas said it best when he respected a god that need not prove themself.
Varric bases his belief on how crazy things have gotten, and despite the impossibility ratio, things somehow work out.
"But thats not enough to warrent proof right?" I wondered- " that there is an outside force guiding the main character actions an-….oh wait."
Yeah there is.
There is an outside force that created the world of thedas, a power that need not prove itself, lets it’s creation speak for itself, and there IS a guiding hand instated by that force that guides the main characters actions towards the ultimate goal..
YOU! The PLAYER!
The amount of crap that has happened to the protagonist would have killed any normal person, had it not been for you. That’s 'your' role in this whole thing.
But you need no let anyone know, you get gratification knowing everything turns out as best you can, through your efforts to save the day. You, yourself wont get any credit for this, and people will never know your personal involvement, but that’s the point- You Need Not Prove Yourself- this is the inquisiter’s story, the inquisiter you created.
Remember, this whole game has a theme of “stories” and their “authors" running through it. Could the game be slightly 4th wall touching with it’s emphasis on proposing a non-descript power that is at the very least at work in the stories of the characters?
If you forgive the blasphemy, but I think it’s kinda interesting if you look at it from this perspective; Bioware put you technically in the role of the guiding will of the Maker( which is Bioware) to see this story through to the end and protect the inquisiter.
..meh, just a funny thought I had that makes me smile when Varric touches the 4th wall sometimes now.
((feel the pressure yet- oh lil miss/mr Will of the Maker(s)????))
