Shared this with a bro the other day who is getting in the Dragon AGE table top (while I’ve also been planning on running games this year), as a visual idea of how it works. So if you have time to waste and wanted to check out how the game plays here you go.
Also Dragon AGE resources for if you actually do want to try sample games out with some friends, without having to buy anything. Dragon AGE is as old as DAO (they were made parallel to one another) and so some of the worldbuilding information may not link up right. However all these sets are completely free to download.
Quickstart Guide: Basics of Character Creation and Stats, The Arl’s Ransom Adventure
Death Unto Duty: The Adventure played on Geek and Sundry’s Tabletop segment (the video links above), involving Grey Wardens and old grudges.
Tallis: Just a free and interesting pdf on the Qunari viddathari and how you could add her into an adventure.
So a while back I posted a list of links to Dragon Age-specific writing references, which was mostly just thrown together from things on my blog, and it was astonishingly popular and clearly there was a thirst for that sort of thing. I thought I’d try something a little different, then, and put together a blog dedicated to writing resources, specifically things helpful to people writing DA fanfic.
In addition to transferring over all the resources I have so far, I’ll track the tag #DAwritingref and reblog relevant things from that tag, with an attempt to tag consistently so that people can find things reasonably efficiently. If you create or see something that you think is appropriate, I’d love it if you’d use the tag or drop me a note.
Appropriate materials include (but, I’m sure, are not limited to):
dialogue and scene transcripts
maps and physical data about Thedas
worldbuilding lore and speculation
language information and speculation
information from supplemental resources such as WoT and WoT2, the novels and comics, etc.
I’m not really thinking of posting much meta theory, though I’m willing to consider character meta, especially anything that would specifically help people write a character better.
I have this niggling conviction that this is somehow presumptuous of me and I have no idea what I’m doing, but here it is anyway, and if you have any suggestions then by all means drop me a note!
Someone requested that I retexture the Infused Vyrantium Samite material with the same pattern/texture that I used for my Royale Sea Silk retex, so I’ve done that and updated the file list on the Nexus mod page. Note that doing this ALSO changes the appearance of the Avvar Cotton material (Jaws of Hakkon DLC) since they use the same resource files.
As promised, the Legend of Zelda triforce kids all together! This took me quite a few days to get right. I never really bother with backgrounds, but I am so happy with the final result. I had no real final image in mind, I just kind of made it up as I went. Once I sat Link and Zelda together however, the two of them just looked like they were playing together, So I gave them a couple of little toys. You may recognise them. Lets just say Zelda is playing with dolls from my boyfriend and I’s favourite movies Then there’s poor Ganondorf. The guy just can’t catch a break. He even brought along his own toy to play!
I hope you guys like this so much. I really did put a lot of love into it
The latest entry in my Legend of Zelda kid pictures. It’s Malon and Epona!
My boyfriend demanded a Malon version, he loves her so much. So here she is along with everybody’s favourite steed Epona! Drawing Epona wasn’t as difficult as I thought she’d be, only took me a couple of tries. I’m really happy with the final result.
