I used to make Leliana Divine mostly for the mages’ sake at first. But once I got deeper into Thedas lore/history I now do it for the sake of a lot more. Religion will proselytize in the end of the day, but at least Leliana - stabby or softened, is one who turns this Orlesian land grab and genocide machine into something dedicated more to charity and equality, and, maybe above all, without an army of its own.
I just started playing DA from the beginning again and I’m now on awakening. Why, oh why, isn’t Nathaniel Howe a romance option?! As soon as I walked into his jail cell I was crushing hard, I can’t be the only one </3
The destruction of the Normandy in Mass Effect 2 always reminds me of the destruction of the Kelvin in Star Trek XI, and I’m still sure that movie (and its sequels) takes visual cues from Mass Effect 1.
Oh you know, just casually chatting with Karin Weekes, a lead editor at Bioware who worked on Dragon Age 2 and wife of the lead writer for the dragon age franchise about the Honey Badger casual Hawke cosplay I’m wearing to Dragon*Con. No big deal.
I made a bargain with Imshael the “Choice Spirit” because I wanted to see what would happen– I assumed the dialog trees would force me to fight him, so I was surprised when I asked for power and he just…disappeared. Then I go to find Michel, and when I got this screen, I literally screamed.
“ Unlike other cities, where the people are the life-blood and the character, Val Royeaux is her own person, and her people little more than decorations. There is always music in Val Royeaux, streaming from the many windows — quiet refrains and triumphant choruses. And always, floating above that all, the Chant, coming from the Grand Cathedral.
The actual game: “Heres a shopping mall with 3 stores, 50 locked doors, and 1 restaurant you cant even eat at.”
Vivianne’s treatment of Cole and other fellow mages made me dislike her extremely, however her aesthetic and wardrobe was fierce as hell. I just personally think that her character could have benefited from having a little bit more empathy.
