Monsters in Thedas
Ever since I got on the Witcher train, I can’t stop imagining Thedas with the same variety of wildlife and exotic creatures. (and danger)
Imagine Ferelden trolls, distant relatives of the giants, guarding bridges and old ruins, while fiends and leshens roam the korkari wilds.
Ekkimaras and foglets sleeping in the deepest caves near Orzammar, occasionally tainted by the darkspawn, haunting the nightmares of every dwarven child in the city.
Sirens dwelling in the deep recesses of the Waking sea, no more than legends to country folk.
Harpies infesting coastal areas like gulls, more nuisance than threat if kept under control.
Royal griffins hunting in the higher peaks of the Frostback mountains, unbeknownst to all, the very last of their kind.
Cockatrices and basilisks dwelling in dark caves and abandoned chateaus in Orlais. They make for fine trophies, according to the nobility.
Manticores from Tevinter, manhunters known for toying with their prey before going for the kill.
Godlings and Sylvans in Rivain, either helping or hindering weary travelers on the road.
Ghouls festering in Seheron like a flesh wound, feeding off the fallen.
And of course, professional monster hunters from every race and background to take care of all of the above when needed.
I want to add more but that’s all I can think of right now. Keep in mind that I’m aware that this might conflict with DA canon. I JUST LOVE MONSTERS OKAY?? And Dragon Age.
Feel free to add your ideas if you have them!
Oh, and fade unicorns. Because yes.
