/scratches her head/ Is that part about meeting drunk Alistair crucial to the plot? I'd have great problems reconciling this with Ned's past. - BTW, what's your idea of reconciling those four Wardens' past? There can't be four Heroes of Ferelden, each with different decisions in their past, or can they?--Ygrain (talk) 12:48, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

We could have them going in different directions after Ostagar maybe. ie; one went to the Dalish, another to Redcliffe etc.? Being HoF isn't crazy important for my Warden (he'd be alright just as the Bann of the Alienage for helping in the Blight) As for drunk Alistair, he isn't central but I think it would be cool to implement some character's reactions to him being there. EzzyD(talk) 13:09, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

I don't need Ned to be HoF, either, but he can't be the one making the Landsmeet decision, since there is no way he would prefer Loghain and Anora over Alistair. Actually, he can't have been present at all, since the moment Alistair walks away, so does Ned and shows everyone a finger.

Or, is this supposed to be a kind of "WTF are you doing here, you're king/my husband/dead" scene? --Ygrain (talk) 13:21, June 25, 2012 (UTC)


The reason Iso and I were discussing drunk Alistair scene is because that was what started the idea. It's not crucial to the plot at all, but rather we thought it'd be fun to write the scene. The Anders idea came later. This isn't really a canon story, because technically Alistair's already back in Ferelden by the time Meredith goes loony.

Another option to consider is have Alistair be king, turn him super grouchy (he does have a streak of "I'd rather go stick my head in a bucket than stick my head in a crown"), have him be in Kirkwall and then have the party find King Alistair in disguise drinking his "woe be me I am king" miseries in Hanged Man. That seems canonical, since Theirins do have a habit of abandoning royal duties and running off in attempts to get killed in creative ways. I've had a playthrough in which Alistair thought the crown looked awesome after all and jammed it on his head, so I'm not too bothered about it.

As for the 4 HoF, I think that's possible, if we distribute the quests evenly, IE: Amarina to Circle, Solaryn to Dalish, Ned to Redcliffe, Eyzrian to the dwarves or the city uprising. I think I'll let the readers try to figure out the time between Battle of Denerim and Witch Hunt (can't have 4 Commanders of the Grey of Ferelden). Some canons need to be adjusted as needed (IE: in the original discussion in which Alistair was just a drunk sop, the reason was going to be that he was moping about getting dumped by Solaryn, so Amarina was going to be single).-Gabriellesig 14:47, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think the wardens necessarily need to each cover one main quest, and that it could actually be very interesting to have all four present along with some dissenting opinions on the choices made. With regards to Amaranthine, it could be interesting if only one or two of the wardens were in Ferelden at the time since the warden can choose to travel the world at the end of DA:O. I'm thinking it could be Solaryn and maybe Ned, as Solaryn would not want the position and Ned seems the most "Commander-esque" if that makes any sense.

Also, with regards to recruitment, I'm thinking that Duncan leaves Ostagar and completes a circuit of Ferelden, picking up each warden in their respective location. I'm thinking Amarina>Ned>Eyzrian>Solaryn owing to time constraints established by the events of the Dalish Origin. ----Isolationistmagi 01:47, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

PlotEdit

Place: Kirkwall and the surroundings.
Time: Autumn, 9:37 Dragon
Main Quest: Finding Anders

Start: Outside Kirkwall
Stop I: Hanged Man. Arian forces information out of the "Gaider" spymaster (Ravide Givadd, albino Rivaini, eating a slice of swiss cheese and spillig crumbs all over In Pursuit of Knowledge when encountered). Amarina duels "Laidlaw" assistant (Waild Kalime, Tevinter blood mage with a superiority complex, constructing a miniature Tallis out of mud, and explains his plans to mass produce and sell it in Hightown for 50 sovereigns each).
Meets King Alistair in the Hanged Man, drinking. The three yank him out in the alley for a little "talk-to".
Stop II:

Solaryn: Chantry
Amarina: Gallows
Ned: Keep
Arian: Alienage and the Lowtown

Stop III: Warden Prison (got tip that Anders and Hawke hid out there for a while)
Stop IV: Tantervale to get to Fenris.

Beat him up for info. Anders and Hawke fled to Tevinter.

Stop V: Marnus Pell (Anders went there to try to separate from Justice)


Iso and I discussed the four walking into Hanged Man and meeting drunk Alistair. Feel free to discuss place, time, main quest, e.t.c. -Gabriellesig 16:22, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Finding Anders as in searching for the missing apostate? Would this involve tracking down a rogue Warden possibly, 'cause I'm all for that if that's the case? Meeting that drunk Alistair would also be interesting. EzzyD (talk) 23:30, June 23, 2012 (UTC)


It could be? :P Either way, I suppose we could remove it if necessary. The real objective for the 4 would be finding Anders; who I'm sure everyone must be pissed off at. :D EzzyD (talk) 13:29, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess no-one likes deserters. However, we still have to establish some kind of canon for this story. --Ygrain (talk) 13:41, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

I expect we can do that when all the character cards are established. EzzyD (talk) 14:10, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
