Things I wish had been in Dragon Age Origins
  • Wardens of any origin other than Dalish being mildly uncomfortable with having to suddenly live out in the wilderness.
  • “What do you mean I should just go pee behind the bushes!”
  • “The stories I was told as a child were lies, there’s nothing nice in bathing in muddy lakes during midnight.”
  • The dwarven origins being surprised after seeing mabaris for the first time.
  • ANY reaction at all from the dwarven wardens about the sky and being above ground.
  • Dwarven wardens complaining about getting sunburnt.
  • THE WARDEN WORRYING ABOUT THEIR COMPANIONS GETTING POISONED BY DARKSPAWN BLOOD.
  • Really though, the whole Ostagar experience is like a giant warning sign about getting the Blight sickness. The wounded soldiers, the darkspawn corpses and those instructors talking about the dangers of touching darkspawn blood or of getting scratched or bitten by them.
  • The Warden, Alistair and Shale are the only ones who are resistant and can face the darkspawn with no fear. Everyone else is in major danger.
  • The Warden realising this and having mild panic attacks whenever they spot one of their companions coming to blows with a darkspawn.
  • Hurried checks after a battle, their breath catching in their throat and their heartbeat banging in their ears.
  • “Did it bite you? Do you have any scratches, anywhere?! We should burn that wound just to be sure!”
  • Having to keep from petting the mabari after it has just licked all the darkspawn gore from the Warden’s armor, not until they get to a river and wash it.
  • The Cousland Warden’s heartbreak in Ostagar after their mabari, the only surviving member of their family gets the blight illness while hunting for darkspawn blood. Being extremely angry with Duncan for not warning them and the worried race through the Arbor Wilds to find that precious flower.
  • Their fear this could happen to their companions and they know of no flowers to fix people instead of dogs.
  • MAHARIEL WORRYING ABOUT THEIR COMPANIONS AND LI GETTING INFECTED.
  • Especially after Tamlen.
  • Especially after Tamlen finding them after he has become a ghoul.
  • Their worst nightmares are no longer those of the Archdemon but of their friends’ faces, grey and without hair, looking at them with filmy eyes. They wake up sweating and yelling, clinging to their mabari for comfort.
  • Any mention about the Lords and Arls of Highever resisting Howe when he claims Highever as his own.
  • It’s known that the Cousland family and especially Bryce Cousland were highly respected by the nobles of Ferelden and the Lords and Arls of his Teyrn should have been sworn allies of his. There’s no way they would silently watch as the man who murdered almost the whole Cousland family was given the very seat Bryce used to have.
  • An actual resistance trying to drive the Howe soldiers out of Highever, the Warden hearing rumors that it is lead by Fergus Cousland himself.
  • Fergus trying to reclaim his anchestral home instead of “roaming the Arbor Wilds for a year”.
  • Tabris being able to actually say ANYTHING to Anora about how shitty her treatement of the alienage elves is.
  • If she’s the true leader of Ferelden, why the hell were elves being taken from their homes and raped in the very capital of Ferelden where she lives. When she says she cares about Ferelden, she’s only really talking about Ferelden’s humans and I wish a Tabris could have been able to call her out for that.
