Bad news for all Dragon Age fans:
Nevarra's not a playable space in #DAI. It's referenced heavily, but you won't go there directly. - Mike Laidlaw via Twitter.
No Free Marches in #DAI?
Not going there. Referenced lots. - Mike Laidlaw via Twitter.

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…

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 scarcit…Read more >

Not long ago BioWare announced on Facebook they would take a closer look at a Dragon Age: Inquisition follower each month. This month a companion is introduced we might already have an idea about what she's like, Vivienne.
"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 rest…

Be warned I don't know how to use the editor properly. Details for DAI that I found on Gamebanshee (which was take from a translation of German printed games magazine Gamestar). These are the basics:Two new companions -The bald elf mage called Solas who is an apostate and expert for the fade -The Qunari Iron Bull. David Gaider describes with this words: He fears nothing only the past. -GameStar saw also an archer (likely Sera) -The Inquisitor can make his/her own rifts in the fade and summon demons.It's not understood if this is a special ability for all Inquisitor classes or just the mage class(personally I think we are finally getting a demon summoning blood mage) -No fade puzzles (transformations) like Origins -Two voice actors for… Read more >

The Grey Wardens are heroes across Thedas once again: the Archdemon has been defeated with relative ease and the scattered darkspawn are being driven back underground. The Blight is over. Or so it seems.
Valya, a young elven mage recently recruited into the Wardens, has been tasked with studying the historical record of previous Blights in order to gain insight into newly reported, and disturbing, darkspawn phenomena. Her research into the Fourth Blight leads her to an encoded reference scraw…

During my time in the key feature of any good wiki; the live chat there have been increasingly more Mass Effect talks then Dragon age. Personally I'm a fan of all Bioware's games from Baldur's gate to Star Wars Old Republic. I do say though I've introduced myself to this wiki nearly half a year ago and I've had the most detailed questions answered to the exact end of the tie. However there has been less talk of Dragon Age and more of Mass Effect. I'm definitely not against this I am only posting this blog to figure one thing out...
Which game do you prefer? a game of futuristic scenarios in galaxy changing choices or a mystical fight between never waning finesse, might, and magic.
So if you give me your opinion I'd gladly read it over and re…Read more >

So what do you guys think about these new daily challenges in HoDA? I'm having fun with them so far. The game was really getting stale what with me not being able to advance through the maps so this is actually making it interesting again. The only thing I don't like is the matchmaking system. Or rather, the lack of a system. It's frustrating to keep hitting "next" over and over again in order to find a battle where the team isn't 20 or 30 levels above you.
I do hope that they'll keep this going, though. I love getting incentives for accomplishing things and it's fun to see how far up the ladder I can climb. I think I wound up getting about halfway, which helped me upgrade Branka to tier 4. I really wish I'd been able to get Sigrun, though. …Read more >
Hey guys, it's your friendly neighborhood video creator here (or maybe I just call myself that to make myself feel better). Anyway, as most of you probably know there have been some recent developments coming out of BioWare about DA:I. Gaider expanded on the dialogue mechanics and BioWare released character creation kits for Cassandra and Varric. I created this video to give my own opinions on the dialogue mechanics and also present the news in a visual fashion. Enjoy!Read more >

In addition to the second round of character kits revealed today, David Gaider, lead writer of the Dragon Age franchise has explained on the BioWare Social Network some of the specifics of Inquisition'sdialogue system. A summary of points follows:
- Similarly to Dragon Age II, dialogue options are picked from paraphrases on a wheel interface, and are written with a voiced protagonist in mind.
- There is no longer a dominant tone the protagonist will use during "auto-dialogue" segments.
- There will be less "auto-dialogue" than in Dragon Age II, as it will only be heard when the Inquisitor says something such as "Go on." or "What is that?"
- The diplomatic, humorous and aggressive tones used by Hawke are gone, replaced by noble, clever and direct. Thi…

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…

I am leaving the DragonAge wiki so don't bother contacting me about anything/anybody here.

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 >

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.
