“Though all before me is shadow, yet shall the Maker be my guide. I shall not be left to wander the drifting roads of the beyond. For their is no darkness in the Maker’s light, and nothing that he has wrought shall be lost.”

“In death, sacrifice.” Clarel’s
lightning is not enough to kill the beast. It is enough to make it howl, to force
it to run, confused and in pain. It skitters along the broken bridge, falls
with wings outstretched. The weight of the beast is the last such old stones
can take. They begin to crumble from underneath Lavellan’s feet. She struggles
to hold onto the ledge, fingertips scrapping at stone. The last thing she sees before
she falls is Cullen’s horror, the fear in his eyes, his hand outstretched as he
races towards her. He doesn’t make it in time.
Her insides turn as she falls,
hand outstretched as though the unspoken plea might save her. The mark sparks,
sputters, feels the rift before she does. She pulls at it, tears at the veil,
falls into the sky. Her fingers touch ground and the illusion shatters. She
lands against dirt and dust, pushes herself up on all fours. The air is
thicker, fouler feeling, vulgar tasting. It squeezes in from all sides, a
crushing weight. She takes a shuddering breath as she rises to her feet. This
is… the Fade.
She’s saved not only herself.
Amongst the rock and ruin of the bridge, the others emerge. Solas, face filled
with wonder. Bull, full of a fear she’s never seen before. Varric, shaking his
head as though he’s done this all before. Hawke, taking her place beside the
dwarf, her hand on his shoulder. Stroud, staring at the breach in an unfamiliar
sky. Lavellan counts them all, looks for every scrape and cut and finds none.
There is someone else she does not expect, someone she hoped made it off the bridge.
Lavellan pushes through the
others to get to him. He’s on his knees, staring at green, his hand gripped
around the hilt of his sword. “Cullen,” she says, her hands on his face, “you’re
alright.” His eyes quickly turn to her, wide and half mad, his free hand gripping
“I saw you fall. I – I didn’t
make it in time,” he tells her. “Is this - ? The Fade.”
“Yes,” she says as she helps
him to his feet. He’s still holding her arm. She places her hand over his. She
can feel the way he shakes, the subtle tremor in his grip. In the distance, she
can hear the all-too familiar cry of a fear demon. The rage. The greed. The
desire. Cullen is pale but does not waver, guards her back as they look for a
“Perhaps I should be afraid, facing the most powerful members of the
Inquisition,” the voice of the demon booms around them, echoes in their skulls.
It laughs with mockery, with malice. It
speaks to all of them in turn. “Warden Stroud. How must it feel to devote your
whole life to the Wardens, only to watch them fall? Or, worse, to know that you
were responsible for their destruction. When the next Blight comes, will they
curse your name?”
“Did you think you mattered,
Hawke? Did you think anything you ever did mattered? You couldn’t even save
your city. How could you expect to strike down a God? Fenris is going to die,
just like your family, and everyone you ever cared about.”
“Knight-Captain Cullen. You
failed your charges just as you failed your Order. Under your watch, Kinloch
Hold was lost to blood mages. Under your watch, Kirkwall burned. Have you told
her yet? How you still hear the song? How you hear her magic – how much it
frightens you? Did you tell her how you considered retaking the lyrium when you
found out the precious Herald was a mage? Smite her down, just like all the
other mages you murdered.”
Lavellan’s steps falter. She
turns, looks over her shoulder. Her staff seems heavier, the air colder. Cullen’s
sword has fallen to the ground, his hands pressed over his ears and his eyes
squeezed shut. “No, I – I would never. She is – no, no, no. Though all before
me is shadow, yet shall the Maker be my guide. I shall not be left to wander
the drifting roads of –”
“Cullen.” She is gentle as she
pulls down his hands. “We have to keep moving.”
“I would never hurt you,” he tells her. She smiles, although the smile does
not quite reach her eyes. Her thumb brushes against his cheekbones, the barest
and lightest of touches. Her staff in her other hand, she turns, continues to
lead on. Her back straight, her shoulders stiff, trying not to betray the
unsteady beat of her heart.
You’d think a video game lawyer could just drop into a pseudo-medieval universe filled with magic and demons and be totally okay with it, right?
In the wake of her brother, Spencer’s, disappearance, Belle dropped into Thedas with luggage, but without a clue. After a brief but memorable panic attack, she resolved to be the best goddamn lawyer Thedas had ever seen. Even if she was the only goddamn lawyer Thedas had ever seen. And even if that obstinate asshole, Cullen, wouldn’t stop giving her the side-eye every time she walked into a room…Or every time he walked into a room with her in it…Or every time they walked into a room together…Or–Fuck it. You get it.
Chapter 9: Training Day (Love that Fucking Movie)
Too hot. Belle was too hot. Never in her wildest imaginings
would she have thought she could have been too hot in Thedas. Granted, she had
not seen much of Thedas. There were probably deserts somewhere. Was Thedas the
name of the continent or the planet? How big was the planet? How many countries
All of these questions were stupid. They were stupid because
they did not matter just then. Just then, she was too hot. The only part of her
body that wasn’t too hot was her right arm. She reasoned that it must have been
the only part of her not under the massive blanket weighing her body down. She
felt that familiar tight and widespread heft that could only be a too-thick
comforter during a warm season, untucked only enough to slide one person
What do you think are the biggest mistakes (and the best things) writors can make when writing for horror rpgs?
*cracks knuckles* Strap in kids, I’ve got a good number of things to say here. I mean like 3 days worth of things to say here so really, strap in.
Pink’s General Horror Game Writing Tips
please note: I’m not the authority on horror and I encourage you to look at other tips & guides besides my own (and some are linked at the bottom of this if you don’t know where to start!).
Things to Keep in Mind While Brainstorming:
There’s no one way to do horror. There are different kinds of horror. Ib is a character based horror that gets you hooked on the 3 main characters, and makes you fear for them since you care about them. OFF is psychological based horror that uses the player’s own actions against them. The Lisa series is a brutal game that squashes all hope out of the player and makes you fear how shitty humans are. The Witch’s House is that kind of cheap horror that only works for games that are more puzzles over plot. It makes you feel tense and scared by having you be able to die like 200 ways and tossing jump scares at you to keep you on your toes. Yume Nikki builds up an atmosphere and lets you get lost in it. Owl’s games go for slow building of atmosphere before they go into the true scary shit.
…those are several examples of how to do horror. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, so be open to whatever you feel best suits your game.
“Though all before me is shadow, yet shall the Maker be my guide. I shall not be left to wander the drifting roads of the Beyond. For there is no darkness in the Maker’s light and nothing that He has wrought shall be lost.“ [x]
O Maker, hear my cry: Guide me through the blackest nights. Steel my heart against the temptations of the wicked. Make me to rest in the warmest places.
