What new words have ben added to your vocabulary since playing DA? Have any words changed meanings since playing DA? Which words of which are now used in your daily life? Phyn!X5 (talk) 02:41, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
Out of nowhere, while my friend was ranting about a person we knew who we believed was a complete and utter idiot, when she asked me what I thought of him, I just turned to her and yelled "you know what? he can bloody SODD OFF!" As soon as I finished saying that, I thought to myself "...Oh no! IT'S FINALLY HAPPENED!" XD Sevarian10 (talk) 05:55, September 9, 2011 (UTC)Sevarian10
Asschabs! I used it in a general-interest forum without thinking, to say that posters there were unlikely to be [athletic profession] but just asschabs like myself. Oh! But I bet people got it -- it is onomatopoetic. On the other hand -- today, actually, I was trying to prevent someone from very seriously offending this (Christian) girl he was trying to date by explaining to him, no, "revenant" does not mean "terrifying undead monster", it is something Christians say of Jesus Christ, it's a real word...

I once said "Maker's breath, not again!" when my internet connection kicked the bucket for the fourth time that week. Luckily I was in my room and talking to myself. I did avoid DA for a while after that, just because I figure it'd be embarassing to have to explain that in public. Although, I have to remember to use nug-humper sometime. Most of my friends will get the reference anyway. Kestrella (talk) 08:23, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, plenty - "Innovation" (I use this all the time now whenever I screw up something I work on and higher ups notice), "Something awesome" (when the company is too polite for "bullshit"), "Streamlining" (when I slack off and results are not exactly what higher ups expected), "the single most important character in the world" (when I want to belittle someone without them suspecting)....Dorquemada (talk) 08:36, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Ouch. How about using "People hate a silent protagonist," when accused of not being a team player? Or calling someone an "Escapist reviewer," when they shamelessly kiss ass with absolutely no chance of being rewarded for it? Futonrevoltion (talk) 17:45, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
One time my friend said something that was very disguting,I only said "Riiiight,Very Creepy.Now lets move on".Me and some friend were playing Left 4 Dead 2 and he asked if I wanted to lead the way, I only said "What? Lead? Me? No, no, no. No leading. Bad things happen when I lead. We get lost, people die, and the next thing you know I'm stranded somewhere without any pants."--Gladiatuss (talk) 17:43, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
After an afternoon playing DA2, I caught myself muttering "Maker's breath!" over something the cat did in the litterbox that hung in the air like a Death Cloud. I'm hoping to be able to work "Andraste's flaming ass!" into conversation one day without having a net thrown over me. Legionnaire Scout *talk* 21:08, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
On a similar note, I saw something Christian related the other day and thought of Templars instead (yes I know the Templars aren't strictly related totally to the Chantry blabla). S13Kuro (talk) 11:57, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
My partner got me hooked into DA2 because of this.
Merrill and Marethari got me into the elven language, and I've known a few phrases like "Ma serannas, lethalin", "Andaran atish'an", "Ir abelas, ma vhenan", and many others. Though I don't use them in public, it's cool to know elven lore from a different perspective; we have elves from Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings", and Blizzard's "World of WarCraft".
Just thought I'd pop in to say that "Sod off!" is a common phrase in Britain :P Though last week I did catch myself say "Oh Maker..." when my alarm went off and I had to crawl out of bed. KC. | talk 22:58, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
- Yet in the Dragon Age games, it's only people with American accents that say it, funny how that works out.. HomelyDrugAddict (talk) 23:01, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
I've been known to use "Dog lord" and "Nug humper" as insults, and I caught myself saying "Venhedis!" the other day when I whacked my leg on a table. My friends are slightly concerned. ChemistryCat (talk) 04:00, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
