Reply Edit

Hey Margerard. I appreciate your help with the chat. It still won't work for me, but after thinking about it; it may be because I am currently living and going to school at a place were it may be blocked. That means I am restricted to user talk pages and forums for chating. Thank god that this wiki is not blocked. Well I hope you are having a great day!(Darion Cousland (talk) 22:05, August 3, 2014 (UTC))

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that. Well maybe another time, at another place. Thanks, and you too have a wonderful day! --Margerard 22:20, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

My Reply Edit

Hello Margerard thank you for putting your guidelines on here for me to see. I will follow all of them to the very best of my abillity. Well if you would like to chat I was woundering if you had any Dragon Age topic you wanted to descuss?(also I'm not the best speller, so sorry if you see a lot of misspelled words) What ever you want I will talk about anything. Well have a great day!(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:52, August 4, 2014 (UTC))

Hey, I'm glad I could help with the "guidelines", figured I would try and help those who are relatively new to writing messages and/or comments.
I'm also open to pretty much anything if you'd like to chat, but to be honest I'm kinda bad at chatting on my own, unless the other one knows what they want to talk about. So if you'd like to chat, I'd leave the topic up to you really if you don't mind. But to not be completely passive; I suppose the easiest topic on this wiki would be Inquisition, no? --Margerard 16:03, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Chat Topic Edit

Well Inquisition it is then. After all it is only the hottest topic on this wiki, and rightly so. My next queston now would be; what are you most excited about with DAI? For me it would have to be... well everything! From the combat to the character creation to the story the envornment, the new game engine, the new features, the companions, the romances theirs just so much! one of the things that I hope for the most is that we find out what has happend to the Warden/Warden Commander and Hawke, and that I get to see a reuion with my Warden and Morrigan( yes I'm a guy but what can I say I'm a romantic) who he loves(I know this is unlikely, but I can dream), but I am interested in learning what you are most excited about.(Darion Cousland (talk) 16:59, August 4, 2014 (UTC))

As a quick suggestion - it's best to add title only if you are writing a message completely unrelated from a previous one. This title, "Chat Topic" will be just fine and we can continue talking below it :)
What I'm most excited about is the new characters and that hopefully we can get to explore them and their stories fully. Romance is part of that, as companions may be a bit more open about a thing or two when in a relationship, so I'm sure I will have multiple playthroughs to see what difference would it make if I romanced this or that character. I'm also eager to see the customization options, I heard we get to change even pretty small details such as the inner and outer color of the iris. That sounds pretty neat to me, even if it's just a very small thing, as I'm a sucker for character customization. Combat-wise, I hope to explore all sorts of abilities and be amazed by all the "choreographies" of special moves. I know a lot of people don't like it, but at least it doesn't make me feel like I'm looking at a bunch of amateurs whacking enemies away like in Origins. And also at least it's not that insanely fast like it was in the second game.
What I can't say I'm too excited about is crafting, I never had the patience for that in any game, but perhaps I might feel encouraged enough to fiddle with crafting if I can make more unique looking stuff for my character. Also, while I understand why so many would be happy to see a conclusion to their previous characters' story, I can't say I'm really waiting for that. If anything, I find the idea of bringing them back very impractical for various reasons. But by all means, I'd like to hear about them somehow, just... not meet them.
Any idea what your first playthrough will be like? --Margerard 17:52, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

I will most likely play a Human Male Warrior on my first play through. I will admit that my DAO/A and DA2 were both human warriors, but what can I say I love playing warriors.I think it's because I've always loved knights they are my favorite part of the fantasy/midevel theme . I'll romance Cassandra(fell in love with her in Dawn of The Seeker) I romance more based on personality than looks. It's the reason I chose Morrigan in DAO and Isabella in DA2. My main party will consist of Cassandra(as my support Warrior) Varric (as my rouge) and Solas (as my mage) and then myself. I typicly love always having my LI in my party in pretty much all Bioware games(that's just how I roll). I will probably choose the British voice for first play through. I'm not really sure about anything else for the play through right now. I have a total of five play throughs planed in total. My last two will be female I'm thinking Qunari and Elf American voice for the Qunari and Alixes' lovely voice for the Elf. I will tell you about the plans for my other four play throughs as well as the names for all five characters when I can find the paper with all the stuff that I wrote on it. As far as the combat was concerned I did not mind DAOs combat that much granted it's probably because I played WOW for years and was already comfortable with that type of combat. My only quable with DA2s combat was the annoying waves, but I can understand how the fast paced part would also be annoying. It looks like DAI is going to have the best combat of the three though. Also I'm with you on crafting. Well what about your first play through?(Darion Cousland (talk) 22:16, August 4, 2014 (UTC))

I also bring along LI's in my party, it just feels right to have them there even though story-wise, that means endangering them - but on the other hand, they're always there helping you with decisions as a partner would.
Interestingly, I favor anything but warriors usually :P They are the last on my list when it comes to playthrough, since they just don't have the advantages I'm looking for. I like to be more or less self-sufficient, either I heal or I pick locks and then I can be complemented by someone else. But as a warrior, I'd need to be complemented by two other people instead of just one, if you get what I mean. But regardless of that, I really just prefer the dexterous rogues or powerful mages.
About my first playthrough, I will probably go with an elven rogue with Alix's voice, and I might romance Sera or Josephine for the first time. Not sure since Sera is a rogue as well, but I might do what you said in Cassandra's case, have her as a back-up rogue. I will p[robably bring her along anyway since she seems really likeable to me, so might as well... :D About the order of the rest of the playthroughs, I'm not sure. All I know is that I want to try every race, every class, every specialization and every romance. Goodness I just can't wait for it! --Margerard 14:57, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

I found that paper with the names of all of my Characters for DAI on it as well as teir race class etc. I will most likely have it up later today or tommrow. I'ts funny though I usaly don't like nicro-managing in real life, yet I micro-manage in games like crazy. By making sure that every single minute detail is planned exactly how I want it lol.(Darion Cousland (talk) 15:15, August 5, 2014 (UTC))

I found the notebook with my plans for my Inquisition platroughs. My 1st character will be a Human male Warrior who will have the Templar speck; his name will be "Jason Trevelyan".My 2nd Character will be a male Dalish Elf Rouge who will probaly have the Ranger speck; his name will be "Zane Lavellan". My 3rd character will be a Male Qunari Mage not sure what speck yet. His name will be "Xandrix Adaar". My 4th character will be a Male Dwarf Rouge who will have the Assian speck; his name will be "Kroll Cadash" My 5th character will be a Female Qunari Warrior who will have the Reaver speck; her name will be "Natia Adaar". My 6th and last character( I said 5 in one of the post above, but it changed to 6) will be a Dalish Elf female Mage don't know what speck yet; her name will be "Neria Lavellan". What will you have what will their names and classes be; if you even know yet?(Darion Cousland (talk) 17:16, August 6, 2014 (UTC))

Hah, micro-managment, sometimes I do that but only once I have existing characters. Sounds neat :D --Margerard 00:20, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

I would like to know what plans you have for your DAI characters, and what their names will be if you even know your self yet(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:33, August 7, 2014 (UTC))

I have no idea about anything just yet, all I know is that my first playthrough will be as neutral as possible. That's why I prefer to be a (usually dual wielder) rogue on a first run, it feels like they are between the typical muscle-for-brains and the radical mages on a scale, and that the rogue class is the one with which I can truly be without commitment to one side or another, as I'd be too busy chasing ladies and gentlemales and cracking jokes and skulls left and right. :P I also look at the first rogue playthrough as "scouting" the possibilities of the game, so in the next playthroughs I'd play a bit more knowledgeable. But really that's all I know, I come up with names on the spot usually, and they often just made up names by me, or words from my language (though that's a bit harder). An example is how I named my Cousland Arva; árva means orphan, or someone who belongs nowhere. It was a foreshadowing of sorts. But yeah, no idea about future names as I tend to decide on the spot, looking at the face and considering the character's personality. --Margerard 16:14, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

I usaly make the chacter look like the name I think that's cool how you give your chracters names from words that mean things in your language. Usaly if I can't make the chacter look how I want choose a preset that looks the closeset; change a few things hair color, hair style, eye color etc. I also role play them and know who I want them to be before I start, but sometimes as their storys progress they evolve and become something beyond what I originaly intended them to be. (Darion Cousland (talk) 13:46, August 11, 2014 (UTC))

Hey Margerard! Have you seen the DAI trailer that's posted on the wiki? It's called The Enemy of Thedas. Well it has Hawke in it running around with the Inquisitor confirming Hawke being in DAI. I don't know what his/her involvement will be yet but it comfirms a role of some sort. Someone on one of the forum post said that Laidlaw confirmed that their will be a way to costamize Hawke apearance wise. I'm excited about this what about you? Also do you think this means we will see the Warden back as well? (Darion Cousland (talk) 12:57, August 14, 2014 (UTC))

How is your day? Edit

Hello how are you today? I left a reply to your post under the "Chat Topic" section ( I responded via the edit link on the top of the topic headline. I hope this was the right way to do it) not trying to bug you about it or anything I just wanted to ask if you are having a good day. I am! I look forward to chating with you.(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:24, August 5, 2014 (UTC))

Hey, just saw that you left another message. I just woke up not long ago and then I tried to answer to the previous one but always got derailed somehow, sorry for that. I suppose that kind of speaks of my day, as I haven't got to do too many things :P by the way, clicking on "Edit" anywhere is a good choice to reply to previous messages.
Speaking of me waking up not long ago, where are you from if I may ask? --Margerard 14:57, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

As in were do I currently live or were was I born? I was born in Jacksonville Florida and lived their for 12 years of my life. I moved when I was 12 to were I live in South Carolia. I have lived in this state for 7 almost 8 years. To save you from having to do the math that means I'm 19. I will be turning 20 in October. May I ask where you're from? (Darion Cousland (talk) 15:10, August 5, 2014 (UTC))

Sorry that I have gotten to respond only now, I burnt my left hand today and I was half-handed for most of the day. Anyway, I'm from Hungary but if all goes accordingly to my plans, I won't stay here for much longer. Since you shared your age I suppose it's only fair to mention I'm also 20, turning 21 in April. --Margerard 23:18, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hello Margerard! I'm sorry that you burnd your hand:( I hope it feels better! It's so cool to chat with someone from a forien country(espessialy a European nation. I've always wanted to visit many countries in Europe) I don't get that chance often living in the U.S.A. I also think it's cool that we are about the same age. You said that " If all goes accordingly to my plans, I won't stay here for much longer." May I ask as to where you plan on going?(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:20, August 6, 2014 (UTC))

Haha, actually, I intend to move to the states as well. It was a hard decision though, it will be very different in a lot of ways and far from home, and thus a bit scary (I've never even been outside the country really), but I'm still eager and excited. Since plans came up, do you have any plans for your future? Like, studying or working as something? --Margerard 14:47, August 6, 2014 (UTC)

I know that moving is always a scary thing,but I think you will like it here. It will most likely take a little getting used to our culture is probaly I little differant from yours(although from what I can gather we realy don't differ in that many ways from many European nations; I don't know about yours however, but I'm sure you will be ok) Like every society we have our flaws, but we also have our great things too! Anyway if it makes you feel any better you can tell me what you look most forward to moving here, and what you love most about your country. As far as my plans for the future I plan to go to Filmschool and become a vioce actor in video games.This has always been my dream! What part of the U.S. are moving to?(Darion Cousland (talk) 15:29, August 6, 2014 (UTC))

If all goes well, I'll move to Iowa eventually. And awww, now I envy you a bit. I really really wish I could be a voice actor, then again I've always wished a lot of things to come true. It's just... I like the idea of acting with my voice, the anxiety would still be there but less than actually acting - also wouldn't require me to memorize scripts, so yeah, I'd love it if I had a chance to get into it. However, I will probably never have a chance to do that thanks to my distinct accent, and even aside that... I just don't see how I could get into it at all, if ever. Do you have any record of yourself to see a sample or something? --Margerard 00:20, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

I have my own IMDB page( You can look me up on their if you want to, but let me know so i can give you you my real name otherwise you will never find my page on their), but unforntenatly it is only the credits of student films of me "regular acting"(I was in a film class in Highschool) and also some writing credits. I don't have a demo real or anything like that. I have a few dvds burned with the projects I've worked on, but nothing really recorded online or ealse where. Also just because you have have a distinct accent does not mean you won't be able to do it. I mean look at most RPGs nowadays they are practacly flooded with a mixed cast of actors of lots of differant nationalities. We've got all sorts of accents in their Brithish(my favorite and I can make a pretty good one!), North American, Italian, French, Norwiegen, Russian, German, Scotish, Irish, etc. My point is if they keep adding so many differant typs of European accents then maby they will include yours on day. Besides having a distintive, and forien accent is cool; it beats my boring "lack of accent" American one. Anyway what does a Hungaryian accent sound like anyway; is close to any other European accent(just so I can form a picture in my mind) or is it completely unique?(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:27, August 7, 2014 (UTC))

IMDB page? Hey, that's already something I think :P I don't have many samples of my voice, there's about... two videos in which I speak Hungarian, and only one where I speak English but there I derp and squeal quite a lot as I'm playing Team Fortress 2 with someone. I wonder how could I describe my accent - which is a bit different from other Hungarian's accent as I have been speaking English mostly for a while now, and that rubbed off on me - but it's really hard. Well you played Mass Effect, do you remember the quarians' accents, especially Tali's? Mine has been compared to hers a lot, though not sure about the level of similarity myself. I could try and speak somewhere, sometime, and show it to you if you're interested.
Aside my accent, I'd also need to practice English even more as I still have tendency to get stuck over how to pronounce a word or two, but I guess that could be helped in time. Still, would have no idea how to get into it in a place where I'd be a stranger for a long while.
And just to not leave your question unanswered, but I must note again, this is not my kind of accent; here's a song that can show you the general without-practice Hungarian accent. Though admittedly, this song has a comedic aspect to it as well, but more or less accurate nonetheless. :P --Margerard 16:14, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry that I have not responded in a few days I was buisy for the later part of last week. I hope you have been well! I do indeed know who Tali is from Mass Effect she is who my Shepard romanced after all. I would like veary much for you to possibly record yourself speaking if you would like and I will most likely do the same thing(not because you need to hear the American accent witch I'm sure you've already heard in plenty places already, but because if you make a video I think it's only fair.) I will also check out this song on one of my friends personal computers where it isent blocked(they block almost everything here I know it's annoying). If you like you can ask me about any English word that you don't understand the meaning to, or don't are not sure how to pronounce and I will help you. Well have a great day! (Darion Cousland (talk) 13:59, August 11, 2014 (UTC))

Sorry I haven't responded in a while either, I've been feeling like I could spread myself only so thin lately, and I caught up with sleep just last night - before that, I've been running on 1-2 hours of sleep. I'm on my own for a week now and I have to keep doing things during the day, but everything I'm interested in (people, DA etc) are available at night.
Thanks for the offer, I'll keep it in mind. I will try to have a recording of me speaking English then at some point, but make sure you will too in the future. :P
I respond to the message you wrote in the other topic above, so we'd keep things in one place. I did hear of the news - I put them on the wiki actually :P I'm not too excited about Hawke and the small chance of Hawke being there. I think it could be problematic, but since Hawke is already there, I hope they know what they're doing and that they can solve all issues with them being there. I really don't know about the Warden, I mean Hawke is easier to have along, since Hawke has both a voice and a preset personality. But the Warden as an NPC? Has no voice, no iconic looks, no preset personality... I don't know how they'd pull that off. However, this is kinda unfair, since they "invite" one of our previous heroes (the less popular one) but not the other one :/ so yeah, I'm not excited, rather cautious about it. However, I adore the rest, they're just such a tease about the character customization, they barely showed anything. Hopefully sometime they will show more.
Anyway, again, sorry about not responding for so long. How are you doing? --Margerard 09:24, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Margerard I'm doing great thanks for asking. It's okay that you haven't responded for a while sometimes life happens. Anyway I also have somewhat mixed feelings about Hawke and possibly the Warden/Warden Commander. My feelings on the subject balance on the brink of excitment and terror. At first I was just excited, but then when I stoped to think about it terror begain to mix with the excitment. What if it creates problems with Hawke and or the Warden(if he/she is even in it at all) wanting to do one thing, and my Inquisitor wanting to do the other? As much as I can figure it worse case senario my Inquisitor has to take up arms against my Hawke and/or the Warden possibly leading to them being enemies or their deaths. I don't want this to happen hints where the terror part comes in. If it goes the other way and they end up becomeing friends and allies of the Inquisitor then great! It will most likely be awsome.I'm not sure how they can work the story around it, but if anyone could do it Bioware could. Still I can understand your reservations about it; I even agree it would be unfair to include Hawke and not the Warden/Warden Commander. I don't think that Bioware would make this big of a mistake which is why I'm a firm believer that comfirmation of one is comfirmation of the other as well. It could be a nightmare waiting to happen, or it could be something realy cool we will just have to wait and see. Also wow it sounds like your really biusy(so I'm not the only one then lol) just remember not to ware yourself to thin and get plenty of sleep(not trying to lecture just trying to be a good friend and remind you to get some rest) because it's good for you. Have a wonderfuly splended day! I hope to speak to you again soon! - your friend Darion. (Darion Cousland (talk) 14:39, August 18, 2014 (UTC))

Hello my friend I trust that you are doing well? I'm doing great at the moment myself. Well I just wanted to check on you and see what you have been up to lately. Well take care Marge(is it ok if I call you Marge?) and have a great week! (Darion Cousland (talk) 14:14, August 27, 2014 (UTC))

Hey, found some spare time during my vacation (of sorts) to respond. I'm feeling great, you remember when I mentioned I'd come to America sometime soon? Well here I am now, hopefully I won't have to worry about not having enough time or being too busy for a while. Well damn it's been hot and humid here, especially coming from Europe where summer forgot how to summer. But it's been really nice, just so different... it's certainly an experience though. Anyway, how are you doing these days? Have you heard of the new multiplayer feature for Dragon Age? How do you feel about it now that they've shown us what it'll be like? --Margerard 12:18, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry that I haven't responded in a few days. I had some stuff going on this weekend and was not able to responed untill now. I'm glad you made it to America safely! You are an American now! let me be the first to say welcome to the USA. I know it's different(especaily when we drive on the right hand side of the road and your used to driveing on the left hand side of the road if I'm not mistaken if so than please correct me), but I'm sure you will make lot's of new friends, and of course if you count me you've have had an American friend for a while now. I am looking forward to the DAI multi-player as it looks really fun. I'm currently on the forums where people are already recruting eachother on this wiki to play multi-player once the game comes out. I need a PSN account to play with people, because I'm getting the game for the PS3. What do you play on PC or PS3/PS4 Xbox 360/Xbox one? Remeber if you have any questons about American Culture the English Language or anything ealse you don't understand don't be afraid to ask me. I will be happy to help! Let me know if your ever in South Carolina, because if you ever are we could hangout or something. Well have a great Day! (Darion Cousland (talk) 16:58, September 2, 2014 (UTC))

I think we can safely assume by now we are busy people and will respond only once in a while. But that's quite alright :) anyway, I wouldn't call myself an American just now, I'm still a visitor, but we'll see what the future holds. We do drive the same way Americans do, as far as I can tell only England and a few ex-colonies of theirs drive on the other side. Most people I know think that all Europeans drive like that. Not sure why, but it's funny. Also, thanks for the offer, I'll be sure to keep it in mind. :)
I'll be playing on PC (we do have consoles but I won't play it on console no matter what, I have nothing against console gamers it's just not for me), but sadly that means I won't have the chance to play it with a lot of people. It's kind of interesting to me how people have to recruit others so they could play DA multiplayer. I wonder if it's simply because it's always been single player and noone had to share their game with anyone, or it's just that DA gamers in general are loners and usually don't have others around who would also play DA. But anyway, I'm really looking forward to it. --Margerard 16:18, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Marge how have you been? I'm doing good at the moment. I'm looking forward to The release of the DA Keep, and even more excited for the release of DAI. Are you still on vacation, and if so are you having fun? Well I hope you have a great week and I hope to talk to you soon. (Darion Cousland (talk) 22:00, September 18, 2014 (UTC))

Hey, I'm fine thanks, still on my vacation and have been trying to figure out how to spend my free time (I'm a bit limited in a sense that my hosts are working most of the time). I am, too, excited, I finally managed to pre-order the game and just recently received a code for the Keep Beta. So yeah, looking forward to it! How have you been? What's been keeping you busy lately? --Margerard 23:06, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

I've been great. Remember how I told you that I'm going to a trade scholl of sorts that I also live at? Well I have been busy with work and that sort of thing over the past couple of weeks. Plus I don't have my own computer and have to use one of the ones here; sometimes poeple have to do test on the comupter causing me to not always be able to get on when I want to. It sometimes stops me from being able to get on, or I'm able to get on but then not long enough to keep up with all of the conversations, board, disscussions I'm on or following. To sum it up some weeks are busyer than others, and on those weeks I may not be as active on this site as I normaly am. It realy sucks because I really enjoy our talks and the dicussions, friends, roleplay, and just fun in general that comes from being a member of this wiki. Well have a great day! (Darion Cousland (talk) 15:07, September 19, 2014 (UTC))

Hello Marge how are you doing? I've been great I wached the Twich Presentation by Bioware yesterday it has me even more excited for DAI! Unfortunetly it looks like I won't be able to pre order and might have to wait untill Christmas to get it don't know for sure yet, but we will have to wait and see. Anyway what have you been up to lately? (Darion Cousland (talk) 14:03, October 1, 2014 (UTC))

Hey Marge I hope you are doing good. I've been doing great. Anyway I'm not trying to bug you as this will be my first straight post in a row. You just haven't responded in a while and I'm just trying to make sure everything is ok with you. I understand if your busy I've been pretty busy myself lately. I do miss our talks though as I always have fun chatting with you. Well just respond whenever, but I was just trying to check up on you. How have been and what have you been up to lately? Have a great week! (Darion Cousland (talk) 17:26, October 13, 2014 (UTC))

I'm terribly sorry for the delay, truly. I just looked over my talk page and realized I hasn't responded to your messages in ages, and now I feel really bad. I guess I could say in my defense that I've been a bit busy and stressed out a lot - which made me forget about writing an answer when I saw your messages. I've been doing fine, I'm really happy and content where I am right now. I'm actually stressing over the fact that I may have to leave this happiness behind myself for a while soon and I'm trying to work on being able to stay. In a week or two I promise I'll tell you something really exciting (well, exciting for me anyway), but for now I can say that it's been one of the reasons I've been stressed. I've been also busy a bit with a project I participate in, it's Wiki related and you may hear about it sometime soon I hope. Anyway, how are you doing? Don't ever worry about "bugging me", it's just sometimes it takes me some time to realize I haven't done something I thought I did. I hope you're doing okay, and you too have a great week! --Margerard 04:24, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

You don't need to apologize for anything I figuerd you were probily busy. I'm glad to hear you are doing well and I hope you can stay at the place that makes you happy. If you don't mind if I ask what it is that is thretining your happyness? Stress well that is something that I know well. I can't wait to find out what project you have been working on, and to see it when it is complete keep up the good work! Well are excited about the Keep being relesed on the 29th? I can't wait for it to come out,so I can get my main world state loaded and ready to go. The twich presentations that Bioware have relesed are amazing and make me even more excited the more I see. The other thing I'm ecited about is my birthday which is in 2 days it's October 23rd right now my birthday is October 25th. I will be turning 20. Well it was nice chatting with you. I hope you have a great day and find a way do relieve your stress so, you can be happier.(Darion Cousland (talk) 14:38, October 23, 2014 (UTC))

Sorry about responding only now, I just kind of wanted to withhold this to make this a surprise and I knew if I was to write anything I would've given myself away. I've been pretty stressed lately because big things were going on around here, and now, just yesterday, I got married! ^^
I couldn't be any happier and this happiness is what I don't want to lose, ever. So this is what I have to work for in the coming months. Although I still can't believe that I'm a wife now, this will have to sink in eventually. As for the other source of some stress, it was the redesign of the wiki - though admittedly I'm doing the least of the whole redesign, Tierrie is the one putting it together and it's really awesome. Still, it's something that I keep having in mind these days.
And I just realized what a rude moron I am, damn. At least I could've written wishes to you for your birthday, I'm truly sorry about that :/ Well happy belated birthday, I hope you had lots of fun! --Margerard 19:59, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Marge I've been great! Congrats on getting married! I hope you enjoy your life, and that happiness follows where ever you go! Also good work on the wiki revamp. I enjoy looking at all the pictures, and just the new way the wiki is in general. I hope you enjoy married life. Their is nothing better in this whole world then love between to people(not that I would know from pesonal experiance seeing as how I've never been in an actuale relasionship my self, but it is somthing I have wittnesded and believe). Anyway I am hugly excited for DAI to the piont where I can no longer contain my excitment! I have five world states saved, and ready to go. Speaking of the Keep do you mind if we exchange Origin profile names, so we can friend eachother on the Keep? Sadly my PS3 broke, and I'm too broke to fix it, because I'm in a trade scholl right now, and only get $32.00 a week, and after all my expenses for things I need I'm not left with much(my trade school is run by the govenment they are cheap. I just want to get out of here, so I can go to college, and make all my voice actor dreams come true, but unfortunatly I need what this place offers) :( Thankfuly my friend said he will let me play DAI on his Xbox 360 when he gets it! How many world states do you have saved? Well untill we chat again, so long my friend. PS. my birthday was great thank you for asking. (Darion Cousland (talk) 13:58, November 10, 2014 (UTC))

Hey Marge it's been a while. How have you been? I have completed one playthrough of DAI,so far and am currently working on three more playthroughs right now. Any way how did you like the game? I loved it! Did you have a favorite part of the game? What do you like the best about it? Well it's been nice chatting with you take care.(Darion Cousland (talk) 13:16, February 11, 2015 (UTC))

Dracowrath's chat ban Edit

So, how long is the chat ban this time? It's already been 24 hours, and it still isnt letting me back in. --Dracowrath (talk) 00:01, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

The length of the ban is three days. As inappropriate behavior occurs more and more often, the length will increase accordingly, while tolerance towards it may decrease the same way. You can also see the length of your ban here, or furthermore you may click on the chat ban log on your contributions' page to see all past and present bans. --Margerard 00:20, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

Amazon - The World of Thedas Vol 2 Edit

new page for you Metal Knight (talk) 22:07, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

Three days for him and permanent for me? That makes complete sense (I'm being sarcastic in case you're unable to tell).

Titansfan345 (talk) 03:29, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 03:29, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

The one who was on ignore couldn't have been that worthwhile anyhow.

Titansfan345 (talk) 03:42, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 03:42, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

Ignoring a user and refusing to talk it out due to passive-agression isn't very moderator-like you know.

Titansfan345 (talk) 03:47, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 03:47, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not a troll. Edit

Trolls are never genuine, and while I do match some of the definition, I am genuine while typing. We've had a misunderstanding if I come off as a troll.

Titansfan345 (talk) 03:29, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 03:29, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

You really are pathetic for ignoring my request.

Titansfan345 (talk) 04:06, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 04:06, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

You appear frenzied to associate with me for some reason.

Titansfan345 (talk) 04:12, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 04:12, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I am not looking at my talk page all the time, so repeatedly telling me I must be ignoring you is not only false but you won't even achieve anything with it. Anyway, now looking at both the changes on your user page and the various talk page messages here, I have to say you're making the worst case for yourself. It is the safest if I'm not lifting the ban. --Margerard 08:31, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I was just infuriated over the ban (I'm not saying that it was an excuse either). It kind of did appear that way to me however. May I please have one last chance in the chat (it was a permanent for 1-2 minor offense the second time being in the chat)? I can guarantee that it would be different a second time and that nobody would regret it. Titansfan345 (talk) 09:10, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 09:10, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

Wasn't just 1-2 minor offenses but spamming of "everyone's blocked/ignored" as well. --Margerard 10:06, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

So disclosing that people are on ignore is an offense all of a suddenly?!?! I don't recall spamming it. Titansfan345 (talk) 10:16, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 10:16, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

It is not an offense but it does raise the question why do you want to come up anyway if all you can spam (because yes, there was barely anything else you "talked about") is that you ignore literally near everyone. I am sorry, it is unlikely I will change my mind about this case, at least not in the near future. --Margerard 10:34, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I discussed other things in there, and the second that I was on topic with them wanting a discussion I was attacked for it acquiring a PM telling me by another unignored user (I won't disclose their name) that I'm not allowed to join into any discussion and that my opinion was worthless. So what was I supposed to do? Titansfan345 (talk) 10:39, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 10:39, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

When I banned you, I read through the logs to be able to decide what to do with you. If you have any other saved logs that you could provide, I'm ready and willing to revise, until then however my decision stands as for now - I will consider changing the length of ban to something less drastic in the meantime, and will let you know if I do change it. --Margerard 11:00, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

How about for just 1-2 weeks or something? Permanent is bizarre for just this, and somebody even attacked me in the chat right after I made an topic comment about abortion when they were discussing it, so please go look (I don't save PM's as I never disclose them).

Titansfan345 (talk) 11:09, August 22, 2014 (UTC)User:Titansfan345Titansfan345 (talk) 11:09, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

Hungarian post Edit

So, I wanted to leave this here in case I forget by the time the ban is up, but I ran into a hungarian post on imgur. Google translate was able to figure out everything but one word, Gyulu. Is that a name, then?--Dracowrath (talk) 07:06, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

The name would be Gyula, but close enough. What was the post? --Margerard 16:18, September 9, 2014 (UTC)
It was this one Google translate said something like "Gyula another year older? GREAT!"--Dracowrath (talk) 05:45, September 11, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah that's pretty much it. Presumably this "Gyulu" is a pet form of Gyula and is referring to someone, no idea who though. --Margerard 15:20, September 11, 2014 (UTC)
My guess is it's whoever made that picture --Dracowrath (talk) 01:36, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Talk page info box Edit

Hey, Margerard! I'm looking into putting up an intro on my talk page, but am terrible at coding. Would you mind if I borrowed off of yours and made some personal tweaks to it? If not, do you know where I could find some references on how to do this stuff? Thanks --Kelcat Talk 07:20, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

Sure thing! To be honest, I pieced mine together from looking at different people's info boxes, especially D-day's. I suck at coding too, so it felt the easiest to have a simple box like she has, but with some minor tweaking I could do as an amateur. So yeah, feel free to do that! And on a side note, congratulations on your successful nomination, you earned it :) --Margerard 16:18, September 9, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Hopefully I'll do some good :) I'll take a look at D:Day's page and some others and see what I can cobble together. --Kelcat Talk 02:07, September 10, 2014 (UTC)

Questions Edit

Is the smith at soldiers peak the only one you can take the meteor metal ore to? Also where do you find the ancient eleven gloves?Sn0wdelyen (talk) 23:34, September 13, 2014 (UTC)sn0delyen

Yes, only that smith will work on the meteor ore, as the ore itself is an addition by the DLC. The Ancient Elven Gloves can be found in the Ruined Temple, when you go for the Urn of Sacred Ashes. As you can read it on the gloves' article: "after lighting the Brazier, you will unlock a room with several traps, two ballista, and four archers. Directly after this room is a room with a large round dais on the floor. On the far right side of this room is the chest that contains this item." --Margerard 03:59, September 14, 2014 (UTC)

Senpai noticed me Edit

Thought I'd make you jelly with this. Skip to 01:12:25. Fookin' --CrackFoxJunior 23:07, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

Favour? Edit

The favour I was referring to earlier: I deleted something from my PC and wondered if you could send it to me again. Next time I'm on chat can I PM you with what it is? --CrackFoxJunior 23:00, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

Apology Edit

I would like to apologise for my behaviour both on and off the chat as of late. I'm ashamed to admit that it was utterly inappropriate and downright selfish. I'm so deeply sorry, and I promise my behaviour will improve in the future. --CrackFoxJunior 17:11, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

Chat issues Edit

Since chat is derpy as fuck, and it's your account involved, I'm gonna quickly pass onto you what I told Tierrie.

I signed into chat today to discover this. It took me a minute to realise but if the person's shock was genuine and they were not a hacker, it may also be related to an odd occurrence that I experienced a few weeks ago. To clarify, in the second image, I had refreshed the chat and suddenly found all these strangers in it, then when I asked "how did I get here?" it posted as another user. If this is the case with the non-Margerard, then it's possible this may be an issue on other wikis too. --CrackFoxJunior 20:32, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

This is not the first time it has occured, previously Jaeha, Lazare, Supergodzilla and Ezzy has seen and/or experienced this too. Nothing Tierrie can do about it, however, as he has nothing to do with the basic wikia coding. He added some things to the chat, but he's not responsible for these occurences nor has any knowledge what may cause this. This is likely something the Community Central should be addressed with, which I intend to do as I did want to do so if it would happen one more time. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. --Margerard 20:39, October 15, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I didn't think Tierrie could deal with this himself, however I still alerted him as I assumed that he could appeal to people higher up and they'd be more likely to act if an admin reported such things than if I'd done it directly. --CrackFoxJunior 20:47, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

Sera's bond with the male Inquisitor. Edit

Hi there, i saw that you reverted my edit in Sera's page and that is okay i don't care, but Bioware allready confirmed that the companions in Inquisiton are the most realistic in the series yet, the protagonist will able to develop close bonds with the fellow members of the Inquisiton, and i firmly believe that we will be able to get a very close bond with Sera since a male Inquisitor can't romance her, so why not leave my previous edit? Tesshu (talk) 03:51, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Please don't take this as a mean to offend you, I just find collecting my points in the form below easier. The reasons I reverted your edit are:
  1. While BioWare has said that the companions in Inquisition are the most realistic so far and you have the chance to bond with them, this kind of information is not added on any of the companions' articles. It's universally true about not just the companions of Inquisition, BioWare has always wanted to create companions you can bond with - it just so happens that so far Inquisition has done it the best (according to BioWare).
  2. There has never been any indication that Sera would be any more special when it comes to bonding. If you have the option to bond with all of your companions all the same, there's no reason to emphasize it on only one companion's article - as it was pointed out in point #1.
  3. If Sera was indeed special for some reason as opposed to the rest of the companions, you didn't provide any source to support this claim, which is important especially when the game hasn't even been released so it could be checked.
  4. The sentence you added (despite the reasons above) suggested to me that it was more of a personal like towards what you've seen so far of Sera, which should not affect an article that is based on characters.
And for future reference, please at least wait for the other one to explain further their motives behind a reverting before redoing the revert. Thank you. --Margerard 04:12, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
Oh i see, i guess i was wrong then....sorry if i bothered you. Tesshu (talk) 16:12, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
It's alright, my only issue was really that you didn't wait for the explanation just after you asked, which is important if someone initiates a discussion about an article so they could agree on something together. But anyway, you didn't bother me, don't worry :) --Margerard 16:19, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Featured Images Edit

Hi Marge, sorry I couldn't respond sooner! It looks like the images you suggested have been implemented and I commend your good taste Tonguesmiley All great choices which have considerably improved a section I wasn't particularly enamored with. Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk   23:22, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, that's alright and thanks! I might end up rotating the images in it once in a while, hopefully like that it'll be a bit more liked feature (as well as Tierrie's improvement to it). And why do I notice it only now we have smileys built in here too?! Would've helped with situations when I sounded a bit too serious... well now at least I know. Tonguesmiley --Margerard 23:26, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Keep friend request Edit

Hi Marge, me again! Just to say that I'm having some problems accepting your friend request on the Keep. I've tried accepting but it tells me that the invitation doesn't exist for some reason! I just thought I'd let you know in case you thought I was being ignorant. Is there a way to withdraw friend requests and send them again? Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk   01:40, November 3, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for letting me know! I'll try to do that, if that wouldn't succeed let me know and then we can try to have you add me. --Margerard 01:46, November 3, 2014 (UTC)

A couple things Edit

Hey Marge! Tierrie wanted me to get with you regarding potentially adding Heroes of Dragon Age stuff to the portal's slider thingy (look at me all techno savvy). I also wanted to pick your brain regarding building a table for one of the components of HoDA that would potentially have a lot of fields. I don't care for wiki's chat function, so it might be easiest to chat by skype, or just work through email. You can email me for my skype username, or again, we can work via email. Whichever you prefer. Thanks! --Kelcat Talk 23:59, November 4, 2014 (UTC)

Alright, e-mail sent! --Margerard 01:03, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Contributions Edit

Hi, I'm pretty new to the wiki so I am currently mostly reading and making minor edits, so I would like to know, how do I view who has the most edits. Thank you :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kinectking (talkcontribs)

I don't know if it's okay if I answer this (I'm not too sure about barging into someone's talk page like that), but you can use Special:Listusers. Sort the users by number of edits (descending). Hope that helps. :) Saba0th (talk) 18:38, November 19, 2014 (UTC)
That's okay, sometimes I do that too if I notice a question I can answer sooner. Tonguesmiley --Margerard 19:56, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

Hello there! You might have noticed I haven't been around for a while - things got pretty busy in winter. I'm just letting you know that we experienced a huge vandal attack recently and your profile came under fire. I've rolled back the offending edits but thought I should let you know. I hope everything's well. Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk   00:09, February 11, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, yeah there's a guy who recently tried to get me demoted so he could freely stalk on the chat users, while also he would keep vandalizing pages on the wiki. He just recently got "triggered" again when Kelcat refused to get me demoted so I would not be in his way on the chat anymore. Oh well, such is the popularity. Tonguesmiley I hope you had a good time away for a while. --Margerard 00:14, February 11, 2015 (UTC)

A Vandal Edit

Dear Margerard,

You haven't met me before, but a matter came to my attention earlier. I have absolutely no idea whether you had any interaction with a person by the name of Liquid Hands, but their absolute first edit on this wiki was to move Dragon Age Inquistion to Draconic Lodge: Incubation, and then, in no less terms, write down, "Margerard is a cunt". Again, I have no idea what went on, but I'm going to assume that this Liquid Hands had something to do with you and that event probably caused them to go on this vandalism spree. I took it to one of the other admins, HD3, but after I saw the name mentioned I did a quick check, found you and decided to bring it to your attention, in case you might want to know.

Best regards,

-- (talk) 07:16, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Update: Liquid Hands has been blocked by Kelcat for a month. But since their specific mention of you was attention-worthy, I'll leave the message here as it stands in case you'd like to take a close look at why they specifically mentioned you. In any case, have a pleasant time on the wiki. Goodnight!

-- (talk) 07:22, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for reporting this, I'm glad to see it has been taken care of. Yes, we've had a run-in with him on numerous occasions. He's always taken care of, even sooner when it's reported to the admins. So again, thank you for bringing it to our attention! --Margerard 16:53, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

User page protection? Edit

Would you be interested in having your user page protected? I could either set so only registered users could edit, or I could set to admin only, which would guarantee no vandalism, but also lock you out too. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 04:13, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, the wiki didn't notify me I had talk page messages. I rewrote my profile page to something simple, I'm okay with an admin protection at any time. Considering I'm apparently a pain for trolls in the chat and they tend to rage on my page, not a bad idea to protect that at least Tonguesmiley --Margerard 04:36, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

Another Icon Needed Edit

Hi Marge, could I possibly ask you to make an iconmini version of this H aowestera 0.png crest for the wiki please? Thank you. -Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 12:13, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry for the huge delay, I can get to it now if it's still needed. Also, I'd like to ask a favor as well - could you delete all content from my profile? I want it completely empty and be protected that way. Thanks in advance --Margerard 18:13, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
Picture is here. Not quality work by any means, but I hope it will do when it's minimized into an icon (unless there's a better alternative of course). If you'd like I can add it to the icons but I want to make sure this will be good. --Margerard 18:47, April 24, 2015 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks marge. If you could add that to icons and let me know, I'd appreciate it. I was also wondering if you could create an icon version of this image also or alternatively this image, an icon version of either would be great.

Also is your profile all squared away? or did you still want that locked and cleaned ? -Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 12:04, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

The alternate version will be definitely a lot easier to handle and use as an icon, if that one's alright. I'll add the West Hill and the alternate De Montfort shortly.
As for the profile page, on second thought locking it is not all that important, though I do want it completely cleared anyway. I recently made a decision and if you're interested about it, we can discuss it in the chat sometime. --Margerard 15:59, April 25, 2015 (UTC)
Done. --Margerard 16:16, April 25, 2015 (UTC)
Sweet, amended articles accordingly. Thank you so much marge, greatly appreciate it.
