I believe it's highly likely that our next protagonist will be possessed by a Spirit or one of the Elven Gods(maybe even the fragments of Mythal). I have so many ideas of how this could work, such as having our own skill tree where we can use abilities similar to Anders's "Vengeance" specialization from DA2. Also, if we play as a Spirit or Elven God, it would make sense of how on earth we're going to even speak to Solas without him absolutely obliterating us, I mean did you see what he did in Tevinter Nights? He's ruthless and if we don't have some sort of power to stand up to him then I have no clue how we're going to do it. What do you guys think? Would y'all like to play as a Spirit or Elven God in the next Dragon Age installment?
@The Forgotten Grey Warden Exactly trust doesn't matter when there's a common threat to deal with. But I'm going to assume it will in fact be an optional thing.
The Forgotten Ones only have Four Members and one of them is Solas so that's actually Three. The Old Gods are Seven the numbers better match to the Evanuris minus Mythal if there's a connection at all.
My assumtion is the Forgotten Ones are different Rebels all with their own personal goals as Individuals only linked through being enemies of the old elvhen empire and their false idols. My guess is some are/were good guys while others are/were as evil as the Evanuris and others more neutral survivors. Oh and they're all just like the Evanuris and Solas just Powerful Elvhen Mages that became False Gods later down the road.
Long story short is "The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend".
That's why I think in 4, we learn more about this war, and learn that like everything in Dragon Age, it was a lot more complicated than he claims, and that he was not much different. The way I'd do this, is by having Rashomon like narration when it comes to the gods, the civil war, and Elvehnan, then let the players use the bias info they find to make an important choice later.
^ There are only four members that we know of. Their names are stricken, hence the title "Forgotten Ones" implies. Also, I personally saw them as leaders of local resistance cells under the great Fen'Harel, where their names were kept hidden and they also had titles to protect family members from the wrath of the Evanuris, or something along those lines. That's just my theory, though.
Careful though, I doubt the war was as black and white as Solas claims. Nothing is that simple in Dragon Age. Goodness knows what the agendas of the Forgotten Ones is. And Solas turned on them, when he locked them away.
@Godzillavkk Like I said I believe he's telling his version of the truth and that he was in fact a freedom fighter and the Evanuris were in fact mortal mage slavers. I do believe we don't know everything about the Evanuris but I don't believe we're going to find out they were good guys...No they'll be bad guys just with more nuance. Given this series hasn't created a single villain in this series that hasn't had some form of justifiable arguement to make besides the Archdemon.
Loghain was right if he didn't retreat his forces Ferelden would of fallen to the Blight given the battle was doomed from the start and Wardens do in fact have a history of being tratiors and tyrants. Meredith was right Kirkwall had a huge number of Blood Mages doing evil things. Orsino was right Meredith abused those under her charge and the Circles are just prisons were mages just die slowly. The Architect is right what better way to stop Blights then freeing the Darkspawn from the Archdemons mind control and he's right that everything he's done is no different than the extremes of the Wardens themselves. Even Corypheus was right about the "Gods" being dicks not caring for the lives of mortals and that the people do need a champion to rise up against these evil and false idols to lead them towards a better future...Too bad he's also a cunt as well.
You're right that it's never been so black and white BUT that doesn't mean those people were good or not evil. Nope they were in the end all of them corrupt and wicked...The Evanuris will be no different. In fact if they had good intentions to begin with that only makes their fall worse not better.
In my opinion by the end it's actually going to be simple...That ALL the "Gods" deserve punishment and that the mortal races need to stop looking to them and start looking at themselves to make the world a better place. If I'm given the option I'm seeking to kill them ALL...Solas, Evanuris, Forgotten, Avvar, Titan, Maker. I want to be the Kratos of Thedas. That can be the new title of the hero Godslayer or Godkiller...Or not.
@The Forgotten Grey Warden Given how we know so little about the Forgotten Ones it's possible. I do believe there's a connection between them and Solas perhaps that he was one of them even but I don't believe it's a good relationship they have. Something tells me they're like rivals just a feeling I have...We shall see.
@Godzillavkk I don't trust the Dalish legends far too many contradictions to facts so we don't know what happened to the Forgotten Ones really. But yeah I don't believe he's buddies with them at all.
@FlamesOfChaos13 "The Forgotten Ones only have Four Members and one of them is Solas"
citation needed?! Where exactly did you get the idea that Fen'Harel is the Nameless One?
I like the idea of a third-party involved with our MC. We gotta catch Solas off guard or else we are fucked up🤣.
You know the saying : the enemy of my enemy is my friend? I think this will be likely the case., someone or something that is against Solas/elven gods or someone or something that is not an enemy of the elven's gods but wants to stop them.
No, thank you. I do not care to be possessed by anything other than my own self. Divinity:Original Sin 2 has a similar effect (not to spoil anything in case anyone wants to play) and it is quite intriguing - if annoying for my current character. As for Solas, it seems to me that the enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy, and anything else is negotiable.
What do you think?
