I just got Dragon Age Inquisition cause it was on sale. Any tips? I've never played any games in the series before. My only experience with medieval RPGs comes from playing Skyrim.
What's on your mind?

I recently read a few articles that mentioned that NetFlix maybe creating a Dragon Age TV series. No details have been given yet, but the prospect is interesting. What do you all think? NetFlix did a pretty good job with the Castlevania series. Is it a good idea? What do you think they should focus on with the series?
So I’ve been thinking about what the Old Gods might actually be and where they came from. I’m not sure if there’s any lore that contradicts this but either way here’s what I think they are. At some point in early Tevinter history, before the belief of the Old Gods was around, their dreamers came across a powerful fade spirit that appeared to them as a dragon. This would later turn out to be Dumat. Since he was the first Old God they encountered he became the head of the pantheon. Eventually they encountered other powerful spirits that would end up being worshiped as well, becoming the rest of the Old God pantheon. Eventually when the Magisters Sidereal tried to go in to the Fade they summoned the Old Gods and they possessed 7 high dragons. They ended up becoming essentially dragon abominations, like the dragon possessed by the Avvar god Hakkon Wintersbreath that you fight in the Jaws of Hakkon DLC.
If I could have my way, mage schools would still be open and there would still be training to control magic and resist demons. And instead of forced registration into serving people, mages are allowed to VOLUNTARILY register with nations. Or at least show the nations that you're out there and how to contact you if they need your help.
several years ago I got a unopened copy of Dragon Age Origins from Goodwill it came with the Stone prisoner, the blood dragon armor, and the promotional content DLC keys, I did end up purchasing Awakening two years ago which actually fixed an issue I was having where my Warden wouldn't be saved to the Dragon age keep.
But that's not the main point of this, I discovered after the old BioWare social network was taken offline EA had set up a way to be able to acquire the DLC that had been purchased through the BSN, allowing for backup copies of seid dlc.
now what does this mean for Dragon Age Origins you might be wondering. Well the Dragon Age Origin DLCs have zero copy protection in place meaning all the DLC content can be downloaded with no problem, this can be best compared to the Fallout 4 DLC which also has zero copy protection.
There are some exceptions Dragon Age Awakening will still have to be purchased along with the blood dragon armor, and the promotional content DLC. For some reason return to ostagar, the stone prisoner, and feast day gift/pranks these particular DLCs have to be installed using the built-in Dragon Age Origin updater but once they're installed you also have to unzip the files and put the internal files in the right file for these particular DLCs triggering game. The warden keep is the outlier these DLCs since it has it own installer like the ones I'm about to discuss.
while the major DLCs that are accessed through the main menu. the darkspawn chronicles, the Golem of amgarrak, Leliana's song, and finally The Witch Hunt have their own installers

Honestly...How bad/how much is the nudity in these games? I love choice driven rpgs (Fallout, Mass Effect, Fable, Skyrim) but hate that almost all the games I check have nudity (Dragon's Age, Witcher 3). I'm not a prude, I just don't think it's necessary.
Are there any choice driven rpg games you all would recommend (without nudity).
Am sorry, Cole 😶.

One of the things Cabot says when asked about rumors is, "They have heeded the call to power and are ready to raise arms at Chateau Crane du Gris." Chateau Crane du Gris sounds a lot like Castle Grayskull, don't you think? I haven't seen the new show, but grew up watching the original cartoon, and I remember He-Man raising his sword and saying "By the power of Grayskull, I have the power!"
I've never had Cabot say this to my Inquisitor until today, and I can't find this listed under the easter eggs.

Solas is going to be a VERY dangerous foe. Maybe even more dangerous then all the other Big Bads. The Old Gods/Archdemons can be killed, but Solas could not kill his fellow mages, which gives me some doubt about his claim of Mythal's murder, but that's for another time. But, in order to defeat someone as powerful, clever, and dangerous as he is, we may have to do something VERY risky and dangerous. We may need to seek out the power of the Evanuris and use it against Solas.
This could come in the form of finding 8 or 9 new plot coupons, one for each of the Mage Gods that they will allow you to control via a link from the Fade to Thedes, trying to find out how they got powerful enough to be considered gods, finding a way to commune with them, or something else. But knowing them, they won't do this for just anyone. You'll need to pass a test to gain the power they offer.
Tests could range from strength, knowledge, courage, faith, character etc. But of course, if they are who Solas claims they are, there's also probably more to these then meet the eye. Hence why it's so dangerous and risky. But it's the only option I can think of. And it could also be a lot of fun and filled with choice potential.
IF this were the case, what kind of tests do you think each of them should put you through?
So with all of the rumours circulating that Dragon Age 4 will be released sometime during 2023-24 I was just wondering what is your opinion on that release window?

So, here's the scoop. I like Loghain's character. I like that he's portrayed as the antagonist in DAO. I also like sparing him and making him a Grey Warden. As a female Tabris, how can I justify allowing Loghain to live after all he's done throughout the game?

A symbol of Ferelden, a hero to the Dalish. The story Alana Mahariel, is one of honor, bravery, and sacrifice, all in the face of discrimination for being an Elf, and non believer of The Maker, in favor of the Elven Pantheon.
Alana’s father was the former Keeper of the Sabrae clan prior to Marethari. He fell in love with a hunter from another clan in somewhat controversial circumstances. Nonetheless, the two were happy together, and in just a few month’s after marriage, they were expecting a child.
The pair's joy was short-lived. Before their baby was born, the two of them were ambushed and attacked by a group of humans and city elves. The Keeper was killed and his wife was mortally wounded. She lived long enough to give birth to a daughter and name her “Alana”, after an ancient Elven hero from the days of Elvehnan who according to legend fought alongside the gods against a forgotten enemy and brought hope to the ancient elves. How close this legend is to reality is not known, but though she loved her daughter with all her heart, Alana’s mother had lost the will to live and simply “vanished into the forest.” From then on Ashalle took over the care of Alana, as her guardian.
Alana had a happy childhood with the rest of the Dalish children and played with them everyday. But her best friend was Tamlen and he showed her how to befriend the clan's Halla, allowing the Halla to become fond of Alana. Ashelle taught Alana that not all humans were wicked and evil as many Dalish stories portrayed them as, and to look for the best in everyone in order to lessen the chances of Alana becoming no better then the countless jerkasses who live in the DA world, and only kill for the clan’s survival.
Traveling through the Bracellian Forest and being watchful for humans was difficult, but Alana loved hearing stories about Elvehan, and like most Dalish, believed that one day the Elves would rebuild Elvehnan and make it bigger and brighter then before. Over time she grew to love the forest and appreciate living closer to earth. When she learned of the City Elves, she felt both pity and anger for them, pity for living in a segregated slum, and anger for turning their back on their heritage. But Ashelle told her that all elves are elves and should look after each other regardless of they are Dalish or City.
Part 2 tomorrow
