dragon age mod where you don’t have to see the weird sex cut scenes in Origins. Instead, you see the rest of the party all sitting around looking really uncomfortable, while the Warden and their LI go at it a few feet away. Leliana is singing to try to distract everyone. (If Leliana is the LI, Sten is singing in a perfect Leliana impression.)
honestly game designers, just make all companions romanceable, don’t question it, dont think “No one’s gonna want to fuck the dwarf/qunari/undead grandma/sentient living statue/toaster robot/radiation burn victim” bc somewhere, out there, someone absolutely does.
The important thing to remember about Sten is that he is a master troll. He says shit that, if you take seriously, is really mean and threatening, but if you call out his bullshit or troll him right back or stick to your guns, you gain massive amounts of approval.
During a conversation you have with him about tamassrans, where the Warden can act surprised that priests raise kids and not their parents, Sten just SNARLS and says “It obviously didn’t work for you.”
Which is fucking RUDE. And you can act offended or hurt
You can literally just say “Cute.” WHICH JUST RADIATES SARCASM and Sten smiles (yes, smiles) and cheerfully (yes, cheerfully) says “I liked it” This motherfucker was trolling you the entire time
Sten is a troll, take everything he says with a grain of salt. When you give him a taste of his own medicine, he’s really just a weird dork.
