No matter how hard I try, there are two things I can NEVER do in DA:
killing the mages in the circle in origins and killing the mages in DA2
at the end. No matter what kind of playthrough I’m doing, whether it be a
die hard mage hating templar or a circle loyal mage, I just can’t
justify killing innocent mages. I know it’s just a game and has no real
consequences and it messes up my playthroughs, I just can’t do it
Ugghhh I forgot about all the spiders in the deep roads and the shitass spider queen that you hit like once and she sprays you with webbing then ascends up into the ceiling and it takes f o r e v e r to kill her
A family isn’t always one man and one woman. Sometimes a family is a bog witch, an assassin, an assassin nun who sings, a living statue, an elderly wraith, a giant with cornrows who loves the arts, an alcoholic who lost his wife to his cousin, the half blood prince, and a dog.
The bi mod you were all waiting for (at least I sure was).
The intent of
this mod isn’t just to allow women to romance Morrigan and men to
romance Alistair, it’s to add everything missing in these romances to
make them as immersive as possible. Whenever there’s an
opportunity to flirt with an npc that was gender restricted, I made it
open for gay/bi wardens as well (cause let’s be real, the only gender
restrictions were in favour of straight flirting). This involved a ton of dialogue and audio editing, along with constructing brand new dialogue.
What this mod includes:
won’t misgender the Warden. This applies to every time the Warden’s
relationship with Alistair or Morrigan is acknowledged.
Any gendered dialogue has been edited.
Added new banter for characters so that they’ll acknowledge the gay relationships.
Added jealousy dialogues for Alistair and Morrigan if the Warden is cheating on either of them with the other.
Women can do the dark ritual with Morrigan.
Women can marry Anora.
Men can marry Alistair.
Previously dude exlusive flirting options for Leliana are now open to women.
Removed unnecessary gender restrictions on the Warden’s dialogue options.
Any bugs that I encountered have been fixed.
Below are a couple of examples so that you can see for yourself, a more extended description, along with more videos, can be found in the nexus link.
dragon age mod where you don’t have to see the weird sex cut scenes in Origins. Instead, you see the rest of the party all sitting around looking really uncomfortable, while the Warden and their LI go at it a few feet away. Leliana is singing to try to distract everyone. (If Leliana is the LI, Sten is singing in a perfect Leliana impression.)
Some Notable Bioware characters who share voice performers
Not a complete list at all but quite a few voice actors and actresses who cross over from Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age. (list does not include The Old Republic, as I’ve not played that one)
Also worth noting that some of these actors also played minor roles as NPCs in the games, but I couldn’t find all of them (also gave up after Alix Wilton Regan’s went up to 5 picture slots)
Jennifer Hale - Bastila Shan (KOTOR, KOTOR II), Female Shepard (ME, ME2, ME3), Krem (DAI)
Blessed are they who stand before the corrupt and the wicked and do not falter. Blessed are the peacekeepers, the champions of the just. Blessed are the righteous, the lights in the shadow. In their blood the Maker's will is written.
there’s something about the style of DAO that i love
it’s just so… it’s very drab. all rogue armor looks exactly the same. like, helmet upgrade? yep it’s the same thing but in a slightly different tint. mages get those ridiculous hats and the dingy robes. grey wardens don’t have that flashy blue and silver armor yet they just wear whatever the hell drops off of darkspawn. ferelden is brown and muddy. as it should be. denerim is the crown jewel of the country but it’s just dogs barking and dirt and flies.
when your warden suddenly decides that they’re no longer an archer or mage and grabs a random ass sword to shove through the archdemon’s skull, they’ve marched their way up and down this maker-forsaken land and they’ve got mud and dog shit all over their boots and no part of this journey was even remotely glamorous, because it was about spending days in the deep roads, covered in blood and bile and ichor, so of course you’re gonna make your final blow look at least vaguely fancy, because you deserve that much
