I feel like the Dragon Age universe is on that weird cusp between feudalism and capitalism. Kings are “elected” in Ferelden, the Qunari have gunpowder, the bougie fat-cat in DA2 owns a mine and hires desperate workers for pittance wages, Kirkwall looks like Renaissance Europe, etc. Seems a bit like mercantilism. Keeping in mind that I have yet to finish DAO and DAI, I feel like “[the people] standing at the precipice of change”, as Flemeth said, is signaling a push into a more capitalist order? Am I forcing dialectical materialism into a fictional universe where it doesn’t belong?
