Green Ronin have released a Dragon Age dice image and shared a new plans for DA RPG. Set 3 and more PDF coming soon:
The Player's Guide is heading into layout. When it's finished, we're going to release it as a PDF ahead of the full set, which is slightly unusual but warranted in this case because I know people are beyond eager for this material. When the Game Master's Guide is finished a few weeks later, we'll release the full set and put it up for pre-order. Printer willing, we should have the finished sets towards the end of March.
That same month we've also got a fun surprise: Dragon Age dice! We've partnered up with Q Workshop, whose awesome dice are almost certainly known to you. Each box of dice will come with two full sets for the RP…

In an interview with OXM Dragon Age: Inquisition producer Cameron Lee discusses the current state of the game. Among the highlights:
- "Cassandra and Varric spent some time off together, so they've formed an interesting relationship. In Dragon Age: Inquisition they're much more familiar with each other, but still have an, er, interesting conversation from time to time."
- "In Mass Effect you formed factions but it was mostly on a personal scale, whereas in Inquisition you're talking about having a personal impact, but mostly through these big crunchy, meaty decisions and impacts that the Inquisition can have on the world. It's kind of like the difference between being a Jedi, and founding the Jedi Order."
- "There's much more customisation in Inquisiti…

Thrumming, the blade buries into the bull's eye.
Balancing on the balls of his feet, Ned is standing relaxed but focused, his arm performing a smooth movement crowned with a flick of his wrist, sending another dagger right into the centre of a much-abused target.
Nathaniel might toss in a remark to break his concentration but he doesn't; he can almost feel the weight of the tenth dagger in his own hand that instant before it is thrown in a low arc, driven home.
"Ten." Ned smiles, briefly, and stretches; the sleeveless tunic, sweated in the previous sparring, clings to his back. Nathaniel has long removed his shirt but Ned hates to expose his scars as lo…Read more >

The inner courtyard resonates with Oghren's booming laughter; the child's voice, shrill with excitement, provides a high-pitched counterpoint. Oghren's wife, watching them with her hands planted in her sides, further contributes to the cacophony with her own prominent voice .
Nathaniel smirks for himself. Felsi's first arrival with a baby on her hip "to beat some sense into that nughumper of a husband" was a source of profound entertainment for the whole Keep, and even though Oghren eventually did find some common sense in his cups to take up his fatherly role, the following visits have been no less amusing. The majority of the Keep's …Read more >

I don't much know how to blog since this is my first time so excuse me if I don't seem impressive. So my hopes for Inquisition are anyone else's really. I want a large map and dungeons to come in variety, I do agree that the theme was Kirkwall in Dragon Age 2 however there were many things they could have either expanded on or created. What I imagine DAI to be is a world in peril in need of a leader to direct everyone's attention to fight this disastrous tear into the fade.In DA2 you were the middle man not a king or anything close but you were someone the people listened to and the true rulers actually looked to you for advice. I thought that was brilliant because you indirectly had influence on the city, however this time around I'm expe…Read more >
Renowned video game cover singer Malukah uploaded today a hauntingly beautiful and reverberating cover of Inon Zur's "Leliana's Song (In Uthenera)", originally sung by Audrey Ashburn.

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen seems a bit unsure if BioWare's Dragon Age: Inquisition will make the current estimate of autumn 2014, as he addresses investors during their Q2 2014 fiscal conference. The third major Dragon Age instalment has already been pushed back a year after it was due this autumn, but could slip once again. They'll know closer to fiscal guidance. BioWare is using DICE's Frostbite 3 engine to power Dragon Age: Inquisition with critics and fans generally left impressed with the radical changes since Dragon Age 2.
"We were highly conscious of the fact that, if Battlefield is as successful as we believe it'll be, that that sets ourselves up for a challenge next year", said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen during EA's Q2 2014 fiscal call.

I have heard a lot of chatter about how people seem to think Danarius is part elf, while i certainly think it is possible... I have a different theory on his point ears. A few in fact.
My first theory is that it may be a symptom of Demonic possession (or prior demon possession) or the usage of blood magic. Now I am not saying pointed ears are evil, but possession tends to have weird physical effects on people.
My second theory is that it is a form of body modification... not very likely, but possible.
My third theory... I think that it is a sign of Qunari selective breeding, he probably descends from a human population that was enthralled by the qunari. The Qunari practice selective breeding, and its probably inevitable that any population of…Read more >
Mages... stop turning into monsters, how can this game be so dedicated to making mages seem like the most evil thing ever. There is no moral ambiguity in this game about mages, they almost always do something horribly evil.

I am making a wishlist for DA:I because its really easy to do and I am bored.
- Playable Qunari/Kossith ideas
- Allow in-game dialogue to have the character to indicate if they are Tal-vashoth or Qunari, or other.
- Gold, Silver, and Bronze skin trinity all available.
- Too many variations on horns; No horns, sawed off horns, ripped off horns, damages horns, horns of all sizes.
- No forced body-paint
- animal companion other than a mabari warhound!!! I love you mabaris but... go away...
- Bronto mounts :I
- no space magics
- Playable Qunari/Kossith ideas
Faren grunted as a hand shook him, first slowly but then more firmly until he began to sit up. The hand pulled back, and as he opened his eyes they fell on his sister Rica standing by his bed. She was already dressed, indicating to the warden he'd overslept once more since moving into the palace.
"Get up, sleepy head." Rica said, whispering to him, "Bhelen wants to see you. He asked me to bring you to his room, he has a job for you." She stepped back as Faren slid his legs over the edge of the bed, still in his small clothes. Rica backed away further and turned around, as Faren pulled on the rest of his clothes. Sliding on his leathers, and strapping his blades to his hips and tapping Rica's shoulder to signal he was decent.

The elf stepped slowly over the threshold into the tunnel, giving a wave of his hand to relight the old torches along the stone walls. The sudden brightness illuminated the horde of darkspawn crowding the pathway, making them growl and roar in surprise. The elf stared at them through the slits in his helmet, silently counting the horde before him and realizing it was a fool's errand.
His gauntleted right hand reached for his sword, drawing the curved elven blade. Sparks of electricity danced along its blade from the ancient enchantments woven into the very metal. His left hefted his square shield, its heraldry mostly faded and vaguely resembling a wolf's face. His slim, elven body was clad in plate that looked far too heavy. Deep red mail c…Read more >
I am going to sharer a few unpopular opinions here (concerning dragon age), feel free to do the same or comment on mine.
I thought Sten looked way-lame in the original game, and that his personality saved him and the Qunari.
I think it was brave of Bioware to pic a canon outcome for the games, and that doing so will ensure the franchises long-term survival. Though I may not agree with the canon choices they picked... I take comfort in the fact that there is an outcome that "really happened" and in a way it makes the games have better replay value as "what if" stories... perhaps this is why "what if" comics have always been my favorite.

Mike Laidlaw has addressed a few fan questions for Dragon Age 3: Inquisition.
http://www.examiner.com/article/dragon-age-3-inquisition-character-creation-limits-and-story-details-discusseRead more >
Now personally I feel like the story of Dragon Age is going in a... bad direction, too many of the conflicting forces are being connected. It seems like they want to make all evil stemmed from the same source, this is bad for a lot of reasons...
If the Dragons, Darkspawn, and Qunari... all had... lets be conservative and say 5 storytelling possibilities (in reality probably hundreds each)... then having them connected from a single evil force, and thus vanquishing that force, would cause all those story-telling possibilities collapse.
Its important to me that story-telling in this series stays as diversified as humanly possible, there is of course ways around this. The best way is to introduce new conflicts, cultures, and ideals before the o…Read more >

The upcoming fantasy role-playing game Dragon Age: Inquisition is not necessarily an open-world game, like BioWare's Mike Laidlaw made clear in a recent interview. Instead of a huge open-world, there is a world of Inquisition of several large regions that can be freely explored. On the question of whether the developers from BioWare consider the game as open-world experience, Laidlaw said in an interview with RPS:
"Open world I think is a really loaded term, because everyone immediately thinks of Skyrim and assumes everything will be exactly like Skyrim. In our case, there are extremely large regions you can explore."
"It’s a multi-region game, which means that you’ll travelling with a world map. You’re travelling across this chunk of the …Read more >
EA has named Matthew Bromberg as head of its BioWare Label, elevating him from his role of general manager of BioWare Austin.

He will retain leadership of the BioWare Austin division and extend his responsibilities to include BioWare Canada (Edmonton and Montreal), as well as the Victory studio in Los Angeles and the Waystone Studio in Redwood City.

No clue if you are even taking questions at this (or any particular) time, but what (if any) are your feelings towards the select few (or many) that have quietly expressed interest in the Iron Bull being a romance option (should he actually be an actual companion)? (Unknown personality aside, these fans seem to enjoy his bulky aesthetic. Any thoughts on that? And yes, I have a problem with parenthesis.) — fan question
I call the period prior to us revealing what romances exist in the game (or, indeed, what actual companions are in the game) to be the “Schrödinger’s Romances” period.
Why? Because prior to us opening that box, a romance could or could not exist with any potential companion. In the minds of many fans, that means it does exist un…

Deconstruction of a Falling Star
"So you would be Nathaniel Howe."
The tone, slightly ironic, doesn't sit well with him but Nathaniel puts his hand over his heart and bows low: such is the way with the monarchs of the world.
His Majesty Alistair Theirin has a royal profile and grins too much for Nathaniel's liking, but if this is the face of the one true friend, then so be it. Judging by the haste with which he responded to the message by turning up in his own royal person, there might perhaps be more to him than meets the eye, or at least Nathaniel hopes so.
Or, at least, he hopes that he won't make the situation any worse than it already is.

Electronic Arts and BioWare will be bringing the upcoming role-playing game Dragon Age: Inquisition to PC, the NextGen platforms PS4 and Xbox One, and the current systems PS3 and Xbox 360. As the producer Cameron Lee from BioWare Edmonton now confirmed, Inquisition will be on the current consoles, however, offer a far less opulent graphics as high-end PCs or the NextGen consoles. Lee, who identifies the next generation of consoles as the 'Gen 4', told Eurogamer:
"On gen four you’ll see far better graphics and, more importantly, a much more immersive world. It’s a lot richer, and there’s more depth to it. We can put more things on screen. There are more NPCs. There is more life to the world. That, while a subtle thing, really does over time …Read more >

After increasing details on BioWare's incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition in the last days came to light, stood the Producer Cameron Lee at an event the question, if Dragon Age: Inquisition perhaps also offer multiplayer features. This question arises in particular in view of the fact that BioWare integrated the multiplayer mode successfully in the RPG Mass Effect 3.
Cameron Lee said: "The Mass Effect multiplayer stuff was really good, so we've certainly looked at options like that, But we haven't decided on anything in terms of multiplayer at this point."
"Shooters are really easy to make," he added, when suggested that it would be harder to justify a Dragon Age multiplayer.

As producer Cameron Lee announced in discussion with colleagues from EuroGamer, you will in "Dragon Age: Inquisition" have to give up the well-known from the first two parts of base camp. However, the developers provide us with an 'exciting alternative' in view.
"You could use the Keeps in a similar fashion to that [the base camps]," Lee said. "It's one of those places where you can restock equipment, but it's not a replacement for the camp system. We have something else in mind for that, which is a lot more grandiose than even the Keep system. We'll get into that later on. I think people are going to freak out!"
