so now that Cullen’s shitty VA Greg Ellis has come out in full support of JKR’s transmisogyny (in addition to listing a bunch of alt right people as #inspiration and saying he supports Trump) I need to see all of y’all putting pressure on BioWare to not work with this guy. idgaf if you hate or love Cullen, Greg Ellis should not have a job and should absolutely not fucking be in DA4. They can hire a new goddamn VA if they have to but Greg Ellis’s shitstreaked ass better not come into contact with the series ever again.
Literal seconds after the DA4 images came out and people piled en masse onto their social media platform of choice, ready to dissect every pixel of the brief flashes of the atmospheric, angsty-looking, setting like the parched ass motherfuckers we are. The tree in particular got extra attention.
Is that lyrium? Are those urns? Is it a Vhenadahl? Spooky tree was definitely the highlight of the four seconds of footage. But it wasn’t until later in the day someone finally asked the most important question
This needed more research. Employees took it seriously.
From there, treemance gained significant popularity.
If this game drops with a romancable demon tree I’m blaming all you fucks
I feel like some people tend to forget this piece of lore when talking about, painting, or writing about half elves in Dragon Age.
I know media has always portrayed half elves as having a slight point to their ears to display their elven heritage. You see this especially in things like in Dungeons and Dragons.
But in Dragon Age, half elves strongly resembling humans is a very important part of the lore. Alistair’s mother is an elf, and the only reason he does not know is because by all appearances, he is human.
Then you also have the issue where Feynriel could not easily fit into the Dalish clan, despite being half elf, because he did not look Elven.
This isn’t intended as a callout post. I just want to remind people why this is so important.
Her name is Alberta but Varric calls her Birdy! She’s an old oc of mine I dug up and refreshed to make a mage Hawke who is gonna take Kirkwall by storm and give Varric all the smooches because BioWare can’t tell me what to do. Also she and Carver are very close, and I’ve spun it so he becomes a Templar to give her information from the inside and protect her as best he can.
guys will tell u they know a place and then lure you through an elaborate network of portals to a crumbling ruin where they reveal they are actually the ancient god of betrayal and nightmares and magically dissolve your arm :/
This titan has been asleep for centuries. The last time it awoke was during the rule of king Orseck Garal, around -1170 Ancient, before the fall of Arlathan, and its rhythm “bled despair”. Eventually something caused the titans to fall, and according to Valta the fate of dwarves fell with them.
Death of a titan
According to a song, earthquakes once shook Elvhenan cities, and they sought to tame the land.They prepared to hunt down the pillars of the earth and watched their workers scurry, witless, soulless.
In veilfire runes it is depicted that Mythal struck down at least some of the titans and gave the land to the elves, who would make it blossom with the titans’ passing.They mined titans’ bodies for lyrium, but eventually collapsed the mines and sealed them with stone and magic out of fear - what the Evanuris in their greed could unleash would destroy all in its anger.
