miss dao

the warden trying to seal off darkspawn: *firmly cements the door shut,buries the entrance,bricks over the mound, places strong magical ward on the bricks to ensure they never break*

the warden: man maybe that’ll hold them back for like 10 years, who knows

the inquisitor trying to seal off darkspawn:

the inquisitor: problem’s solved, guys!

*slides Bioware $20*

hey so can we play as city elves again in the next dragon age game?

So I’m thinking about the first time the Warden walks into Orzammar and they literally see some dude killing another right there in the middle of everything, which must come as a shock to almost all of them.

I’m just imagining Tirzan, Gilan, & co. walking into Orzammar and seeing that.  Everyone else is utterly horrified—especially Gilan, who’s fairly well-versed in noble politics and proper etiquitte, even if he only gives like a quarter of a fuck about it—and Tirzah’s just like, “Good to know that some things never change.”

Confession:  I really hope that Bioware makes mages/magic more interesting in the next game, spells have been getting progressively more dull with each release. Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity Original Sin, Dragon’s Dogma etc have a far more exciting and diverse spell selection. I really miss the DAO mages which felt like RPG characters rather than FPS guns. ( And I really hope they bring back healers for the next game, Cleric/Priests have been a staple of RPGs back since the original D&D 40 years ago and the previous two Dragon Age games…the folly of balancing magic around multiplayer =\ )
