God, if I had a nickel for every time I had to explain this to someone, I’d be able to buy Inquisition for every single person on tumblr and a gaming rig or console to play it on.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CAN’T EXPECT TO SAY HEINOUSLY SHITTY THINGS AND FACE ONLY ADORATION FOR MY EDGY UN PC ATTITUDE!?11?!?

OTHER PEOPLE ARE… REAL? 

THANKS OBAMA

/I just had to explain this yesterday, shoulda just linked this comic, honestly. 

valerie1972 answered your question: Open Query: Where is the Bann of Waking Sea located

Waking Sea is, in Dragon Age Legends, that cluster of islands off the north coast of Ferelden due north of Lake Calenhad.

OH REALLY? WHOO HOO! I don’t think they’d extended the map this far south last time I played Legends (or maybe I just wasn’t paying attention). YES! I am excited to learn there is canon for this. (And it matches my headcanon, although that particular headcanon wasn’t set in stone or anything). Thanks!

The fact that damned near every bug in the last 10% of the game involves options where Alistair isn’t king is also a big clue.

Ah, yes, the wonderful “this is I get for becoming king, everyone brings you the bad news”- line in Redcliffe Castle, when he and my Warden had talked to QUEEN Anora five minutes prior. Alistair and his delusions, poor boy *smh* Thanks to mods cutting these offending lines out without to even change the flow of the conversation, I had lived in blissful ignorance of their existence. But in the vanilla version of the game, it is very difficult to avoid them and to avoid getting hit over the head with how you are playing their game wrong. /tinfoil hat

Then again, everything after the Landsmeet isa mess, quite frankly. I still love the game, but without mods fixing these immersive-breaking bugs (or features?) I wouldn’t play it anymore. 

valerie1972 replied to your post: “As someone who lives in Canada, these “indigenous” tribes aren’t innocent. There is no “peaceful fracking protests.” THEY burned the cars. THEY assaulted cops. THEY are the ones who enjoy genocide. So before you spew any more bullshit, better take your entitled ass out of your country and enjoy these “peaceful natives” elsewhere.”:

Holy hell, that’s a boatload of angry ignorance you’ve got there, anon.

You know what, when you find yourself writing “they enjoy genocide” about anyone other than groups who have committed actual genocide, you’ve already lost at life.

Not to disagree with anything you've said because you're right, but please check out my reblog from yesterday where I clarify what's wrong with the first couple of reblogs of this post. You do not need your SS card to vote. I'm trying really hard to combat that particular bit of misinformation because it might keep actual voters from trying to vote if they figure it's going to be a giant pain in the ass. you only need a valid photo ID and it can be any of a number of things.

Zee post for all interested. DO YOUR RESEARCH, PEOPLE!

Bloggers ranting on tumblr are not credible sources of information. I should know, I’m one of them :P

so valerie1972 made a post a while ago with the lore additions from the new da book, last flight

when I responded to it, she sent me an ask telling me she had a copy of the paperback that she’d be willing to send me

AND SHE DID AND IT ARRIVED TODAY

so I now have a copy because valerie1972 is an absolute sweetheart and wow I am so astounded by her kindness I might even cry

It’s so perfectly circular for a second I thought it was the grossest cookie I’d ever seen.

If it was a cookie, it’d definitely be the grossest cookie ever. Thankfully, it’s pasta and tasted delicious :9

I used mirin instead of dry white wine, so I unintentionally gave it a little sweetness underneath the mushroomy flavour, which worked splendidly to my advantage. So yummy indeed :D
