Current news Edit
A reliable Dragon Age blogger by the name of Lady Insanity has been live tweeting from the PAX East Dragon Age panel, which took place earlier today. By the far the most prominent news she provided was confirmation that Cassandra Pentaghast and Cullen would be romanceable in the game (though Cullen's status as a companion remains unclear).
Lady Insanity also reported that BioWare developers (among them Creative Director Mike Laidlaw) had stated that there is a "solid possibility" The Warden and Hawke would appear in Dragon Age: Inquisition, while Flemeth will also "probably show up."
Lady Insanity's twitter feed can be found here. Though she is highly reliable as a blogger, this post will be updated when official confirmation emerges from BioWare.Read more >
Within the Dales, a huge strip of land called the Exalted Plains exists. Though ravaged by war, the Plains are ripe for exploration and have their own complex ecosystem.
To give some insight into the work which went into creating the area, BioWare have also released an interview with the environment artists who were responsible for shaping the Plains. The full interview can be found here.Read more >

Guys, I think we got Cullen.
And he might be a comapnion (I'm saying might, 'cause... well, just in case).

As was reported last week, BioWare have released a new screeshot from the game as well as a description of the Exalted Plains, an area in the Orlesian Dales we will visit in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition.
"The Exalted Plains of the Dales are characterized by equal measures of beauty and strife. It was here, centuries ago, that the elven nation met its bitter end. On these fields, the holdouts of the elven army faced the forces of the human Chantry and died, defending their promised land to the last breath. This legacy of conflict has endured, and battle once again rages in the Dales.
The Exalted Plains are now a contested battleground in the Orlesian civil war, and soldiers fight and die here in vast numbers. As the boundaries of reality weaken across Thedas, the memory of injustices past and present draws the attention of restless spirits who rise to possess the dead and stalk the living across the blood-steeped earth."Read more >

I'm disappointed ;(
BioWare has updated their feature on Vivienne with a short statement from her writer, Mary Kirby, and a scathing letter penned by Vivienne addressed to a Nevarran ambassador.
My dear Ambassador,
I don’t believe we’ve met, so allow me to introduce myself. I am First Enchanter Vivienne, Enchanter to the Imperial Court of Orlais, personal advisor to the Empress.
A rumor has reached my ears that you plan on attending the salon held at the duke’s summer estate three weeks hence. I’m certain this rumor must be a scandalous falsehood, Ambassador, as neither you nor anyone else from the Nevarran embassy has been issued an invitation. As host of the party, I trust you did not intend to crash it like some unwashed workman drunk on three tankards of ale and a dare.
I know you are only seventy-third in line for the Nevarran throne, but that is hardly so lowly a position as to relegate you to trailing after Comtesse Montbelliard in the hope that she might give your suit a moment’s thought. She won’t, …

Very Interesting! New information about game:
1. There will be 5 regions in Dragon Age: Inquisition: Ferelden, The Free Marches, Orlais, Nevarra and the Dales:
- 2 of the areas you can expect to visit are; a war-torn region in Orlais and an elven burial ground, known as the Emerald Graves.
- The Emerald Graves, according to executive producer Mark Darrah, is where the Dalish Elves planted one tree for every soldier killed in the Exalted Marches.
- According to the magazine, while enemy levels don't scale to your characters, you can affect environmental changes to drastically influence local settlements, establish trade routes, capture territory and disrupt the local ecosystem.
- Wild flora and fauna, useful for crafting can be hunted to scarcity, allowing other species to proliferate.

BioWare have released the first part of a series of posts detailing the companions who will accompany the Inquisitor in the upcoming game. Today's post features Vivienne, the "Lady of Iron".
Referred to as Madame de Fer, “the Lady of Iron”, Vivienne lives up to her title. A leader among the mages and official enchanter to the Imperial court, she is renowned as a fearsome woman who achieved her position through guile and deft political maneuvering. Vivienne allows nothing to stand in the way of what she desires—not those who claim she is a social climber, not those who seek to restrict her power, not even her fellow mages who would conscript her into a rebellion with which she disagrees. Vivienne fights to restore order in a world gone mad…so long as that leaves her among those left standing, once all is said and done.

More information will be released on Vivienne this Wednesday.
