"So what would you do if you didn't have to be a Grey Warden?"Edit
Automatic conversation upon returning to the Vigil's Keep Throne Room, but can be initiated (Requires at least 26 approval).
- So what would you do if you didn't have to be a Grey Warden?
- I'd go back to court, of course. (If you married royalty in Origins)
- Strange question to ask out of the blue. (to 2)
- I don't "have" to do anything. (+2) (to 3)
- Once you're a Warden, there's no going back. (-3) (to 2)
- I'd leave. There's plenty to do elsewhere. (to 3)
- Does nobody ever leave the Wardens?
- I've never liked the idea of being trapped somewhere, to be honest. It reminds me of the Circle. You'd think after my seventh escape attempt, they'd give me credit for trying.
- Seven escape attempts? (to 4)
- How is it that they didn't just execute you? (to 4) (non-mage wardens)
- And they didn't just make you tranquil? (to 4) (mage wardens)
- Are you thinking of escaping here, too? (to 4)
- You know, there is one thing I miss about the tower. My cat.
- You had a cat? (to 5)
- Why didn't you take it with you? (to 5)
- Miss your little kitty, do you? (to 5)
- (If kitten was given to Anders prior to conversation) The only thing I ever missed about the Circle was that cat, to be honest.
- And now you have a new one. (ends conversation)
- So you mentioned before. (to 5)
- They let you have a cat in the tower? (to 5)
- There were days when that stupid cat was the only person I saw. Except for him not being a person. Still, I liked him. Poor Mr. Wiggums.
- Why 'poor Mr. Wiggums'?
- I can't believe you called him that.
- Let's just move on.
"May I point out that you're all right?"Edit
Speak to Anders after completing Freedom for Anders
- Go ahead.
- I'm 'all right'?
- What brought this on?
Statue of Andraste in the CourtyardEdit
- Aren't all humans? (available to a dwarf or elf Warden)
- Don't say such things! (available to a human Warden) (-6)
- It's just a statue. (-2)
- Are you looking for realism? It's an icon. (-2)
Tree outside the city gates Edit
- "It comes complete with the smell of dogs and dust, but the freedom is in there too."
- You think being a Grey Warden is freedom?
- You really don't care for the Circle of Magi, do you?
- That's just someone baking a pie.
- "Eventually, I'm sure they would have branded me a maleficar, true or not, and executed me."
- "There's nothing a mage can do to prove himself. Everyone needs to be protected from you. The end."
- "(sigh)All I want is a pretty girl, a decent meal, and the right to shoot lightning at fools."
Freedom for Anders (initiated by Namaya)Edit
- After speaking to Namaya in Amaranthine. (Begins with, "I...suppose that requires some explanation.")
- No! Not at all! Don't be silly. (+2)
- What was she talking about?
- Friend of yours, I take it?
- To find a cache? (+3)
- You don't seem very good at eluding them.
- What did she learn? (+3)
- Inside Abandoned Warehouse near the Merchants Guild.
- Encounter with Rylock
- You made a poor choice with this one, Commander. Anders will never submit, not to us and not to you.
- So this was a lure? Nothing more? (0)
- He has made a fine Grey Warden so far. (+6)
- You're probably right. (-10)
- The Chantry's authority supersedes the crown in this matter. You cannot hide within the Grey Wardens' ranks.
- No. He stays with us. (+10)
- And what will you give us in return? (-10)
- Note that this option will revert to the latter given selections
- If you have selected to keep or turn in Anders, you will be given 2 subsequent choices depending on the selections
- You made a poor choice with this one, Commander. Anders will never submit, not to us and not to you.
- After the fight is over
- Encounter with Rylock
Out of Control (Quest) Edit
- After accepting this quest from the chantry board in Amaranthine, speaking to Ser Rylien in order to continue the quest results in (-1) approval for Anders.
Lyrium Bucket in the Trade QuarterEdit
- Don't the dwarves object?
- You thinking of going into business?
- You don't care for the Chantry much, I see.
- Sounds horrible. (+2) // Sound familiar. (if Warden is mage) (+2)
- They don't have much choice. (-3)
- What's the alternative?
