so I read the comments on my last picture and here you go, they are competing on who can make it flashier, not shown above Solas conjures a giant fade stone hand and Dorian raises the dead to flip him off for him, Viv joins in at some point, it goes on for hours
Those who can tap into the raw energy of the Fade and block the whispering temptations of demons are truly exceptional. When they turn that mental focus onto the field of war, they can be truly terrifying opponents. Rains of fire, walls of ice, or even the ability to heal allies make up a mage’s toolkit. Most employ considerable skills rendering foes not only weakened, but also vulnerable to physical attacks, setting up opportunities for their teammates to exploit.
So. Who broke it? I'm not mad. I just want to know.
I did. I broke it...
No. No, you didn't. Dorian?
Don't look at me. Look at Cullen.
What?! I didn't break it.
Huh. That's weird. How did you even know it was broken?
Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken!
No, it's not!
If it matters, probably not... Vivienne was the last one to use it.
I don't even drink that!
Oh really? Then what were you doing by the tea cart earlier?
I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, darling!
Alright let's not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, Leliana.
No. Who broke it?
Solas has been awfully quiet…
I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a nug head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
i love how full-mage-squad party banter is literally just bitching. viv & dorian trading nationalistic insults, solas making snarky remarks at dorian abt tevinter imperialism, everyone pausing to collectively shit on solas’ fashion sense - idk what it is abt magic, apparently the fade is made entirely of salt
