how about fuck you
Unlike Dragon Age II, which opted for a few antagonists rather than a clear and central threat, Dragon Age: Inquisition has a person you can direct your aggression toward. (x)
I’m really not sure how I’m feeling about this, the lack of some one certain person to blame was exactly one of the things I like about DA2 so much. It wasn’t done perfectly, of course, but instead of some bitch who just came and spoiled everything for everyone, the villan were the circumstances, the social problems that have been going on for centuries, and the corruption of the system. You couldn’t just get rid of someone and magically fix everything.
It was basically a no-win situation you were thrown in, and it’s exactly one of the things many fans hated about the game, which is probably why the devs are back to “clear and central threat”.
We’ll see, of course, but I’m a little suspicious.
So our trailer went out today—with a release date!
Also, the new Dragon Age website went up—which I understand will have a lot of updates to come. That’s good.
My impression of the fan reaction so far has been mostly squeeing and excited grabby hands. Also a lot of screencaps of the group shot at the end of the video, along with comments of “who’s that?” and “we’re gonna bang, k?” …in other words, pretty standard and positive stuff.
Aaaand then I’m back to writing another codex.
Mostly squeeing and excited grabby hands - indeed it is, and rightfully so, but I think some people, myself included, are concerned about the fact that yet again the Inquisitor in the promo-material is presented as a male, which is kind of sad, considering that an awesome gender-neutral cover was released just a day ago.
I know it’s not you who’s responsible for this kind of thing, and I don’t want to sound ungrateful for all the work already done on this game, but I still feel like this needs to be addressed.
Looks like the moustache guy to me.
Looks like he’s wielding a staff
the line to make that bet starts over here

mythology meme ┘ one mythology: slavic
Unlike Greek, Indian or Egyptian mythology, there are no first-hand records for the study of Slavic mythology — it has not been proven that the Slavs had any sort of writing system before 826; therefore all their original religious beliefs and traditions were likely passed down oraly over generations, and basically forgotten over the centuries following their rapid conversion into Christianity. Old Slavic religion evolved over more than a thousand years, the Earth was worshipped as Mat Zemlya and there were no temples; rituals were performed in nature.
It’s understandable that not everyone has read Asunder, not everyone knows about Pharamond who had a huge emotional breakdown after reversing his Tranquility, and cried and begged not to be branded again, because he would rather be killed than going through that for the second time.
But surely everyone has played DA2 and seen Karl begging Anders to put him out of his misery, and it surely must have been enough to see that Tranquility isn’t all that tranquil.
There is another side to this, tho…
Karl was FORCED to be tranquil… Kirkwall was shitty like that… in DA:O in the Ferelden Circle there were tranquil who chose to be that way. People who wanted to not have to deal with being mages anymore. I suspect if Owain touched the fade as Karl did he wouldn’t beg for death, for example.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that mages that managed to get back to themselves were absolutely terrified with the state they used to be in, and insisted that even dying would be a better option.
The very nature of Tranquils make them seem content and calm about almost everything, which is exactly what makes them so conveniently useful for being assistants, doing monotonous labour, and, well, other, way more disturbing purposes for templars like Ser Alrik, as it was heavily implied in DA2. Just like they can’t feel joy or happiness, they can’t feel fear, boredom or disgust.
The only Tranquils that express calmness and content about their state are those who never restored their connection to the Fade. Those who “chose to become Tranquil freely” certainly couldn’t know what it would be like, and I wouldn’t call it a free choice, to be honest. It’s either a rather terrifying experience of facing a demon and possibly getting possessed or killed, or the state everyone claims to be so safe and happy. It’s hardly a free choice, it’s the fear of something worse and an attempt to escape it.
