anonymous asked:

Hey! I have a question- I recently started playing DAO, and now I wanna write a fic and just have some OCs prance around Thedas. But I don't really know each nation is, since DAO just takes place in Ferelden, obviously. I've seen some edits on tumblr, but I can't find them, so I'll ask you. What are the real-life influences on Thedas' nations? Like the culture and stuff. I hope this makes sense...

Yeah, I get what you mean, anon! 
I actually made a post about this a while ago, but I can’t find it either, so I’ll just write it down here.


Anderfels - Medieval Germany, if the names are any indication (Weisshaupt, Hossberg, Kassel, et cetera- Though “Nordbotten” is a location is Sweeden.) The lore tells us it is a devout, unconquerable country that is relatively poor- similar to the individual German states after the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire. 

Antiva - Colonial Spain/Portugal. The Felecisima Armada is similar to the Spanish Armada, the trade of the country is similar to Spain’s golden age during the 16th and 17th century, and several Antivans in the game have spoke Spanish at some point. 

Ferelden - British Isles, pre-Norman conquest. Ordinarily, I’d just say that it’s solely based off of England, but DAI proved to us that there is Welsh/Scottish/Irish Influence. Several places are refered to as “Caer” something, such as “Caer Bronach” or “Caer Oswin.” “Caer” is Welsh for Fortress, “Bronach” is an Irish name, and “Oswin” is a Northumbrian name. Also, the general opinion that Ferelden is Barbaric is reminiscent of nearly all of Europe’s opinion of the British Isles 

Free Marches - I’m not really sure, to be honest. I think it’s the most generic fantasy setting of them all. Starkhaven is closest to Scotland, I suppose, because everyone we’ve met there has the accent. Kirkwall is indicative of Medieval Rome with people living in thousand-year-old homes, but that’s about it. I’m not really sure 

Nevarra - My best guess is Medieval Italy. Their obsession with death is similar to the massive catacombs built throughout the southern part of the country. Though, the fact that lore tells us Nevarra is currently as powerful as the Orlesian Empire states that Nevarra is more like Spain during it’s peak. 
Though, it is worth noting that Nevarra could be definitely based off of Egypt, with necropolises and such. Though the names of the cities, and people are definitely westernized, and the culture, from what we’ve seen, is nearly European. 

Orlais - The over-the-top, fancy, snoby country of Orlais is most reminiscent of Baroque/Rococo France, when the Aristocracy is at it’s most iconic point. Think “Easter colors on steroids”
Besides, Orlesians have French accents. 
Though, Baroque France was abruptly interrupted by the French Revolution. I wonder if Orlais is going to have that with the elves… 

Par Vollen - Unknown, though the Qunari culture can be narrowed down two real life equivalents. Comparing them to the Mongols makes the most sense- they plan to dominate all of Thedas, much like how the Mongols intended to conquer nearly all of Eurasia. 
We can compare the Qunari to the Muslim Caliphates of the Middle Ages. Islam left a great impact on the cultures of Spain and Africa just like how the Qunari has left a huge impact of the cultures of Antiva and Rivain. (which correlate to Spain and Africa, coincidentally) 

Rivain - I personally don’t know, but I’ve heard many compare it to Africa/the 17th century Caribbean. It seems like Bioware wanted to smash as many “exotic” cultures into one country. Rivain is explored in the comics, but I haven’t read them, so I don’t know much. 

Tevinter Imperium - The Byzantine Empire. With names like “Dorian,” “Danarius,” “Vyrantium,” et cetera, it’s not hard to see it’s based off of the Romans. Just look at the Tevinter ruins in DAO. Since the current Imperium is but a shell of what it used to be, all signs point to the Byzantines. Though the architecture of DAI Imperium is unlike any real human culture- it’s almost like those buildings were constructed with magic 
D-Gaider confirmed this himself. 

Elvhenan - We haven’t seen enough of the Elven culture to make actual assesments. So far, the ancient elves seem to be based off of the “forest-dwelling tree people who made pretty buildings that are all destroyed now” 


Hope this helps! 
Let me know if I got anything wrong!
