    What Fate May Hold

    July 18, 2014 by Believe it!

    An in-depth look at the present facts and what they may reveal about the future of the plot, world, and characters of the Dragon Age series.

    The following is what I believe will be the main storyline that the past events of prior games will lead to and what the in-game events of Dragon Age Inquisition will be. Everything in this post is based on facts and evidence from the series, and certain conclusions are drawn from these sources. Please see if you agree with them or not and comment.

    Before I get into it, you may be asking, "A bit late to the party aren't you Believe it!? We've known about Inquisition for months now." Well, that's a fair point, and while it is true that I started writing this many months ago and really wanted to post it b…

    Message wall trial

    July 16, 2014 by Loleil

    Hi community! Although this slightly less exciting than the usual news, I just wanted to let you know that in approximately one day we will be trialing a new user talk page system called message wall. Taken from here the main changes are:

    • It’s not a wiki page. You can add comments directly without going into the wiki editor, and you will see them immediately.
    • Newer conversations are at the top of the page; archiving is automatic. When there are more than 20 conversations, your Message Wall automatically paginates, so there’s no need to manually archive content.
    • Message wall Conversations condensed for faster scanning. Long conversations are condensed, and it just takes one click to expand them. This way, you can scan your Message Wall without ge…

    BioWare released the second part of their E3 Gameplay Demo today. Once again Mike Laidlaw narrates, this time however guiding us through the bowels of Redcliffe Castle. In this preview we get a more in depth look at tactical combat and how bringing along certain characters will affect the larger overarching story as well as their personal interactions with the Inquisitor

    It's a fun watch and we get a very nice close up on our new mage friend Dorian. We also see Leliana have the absolute worst day at the office imaginable.

    Yesterday Lazare326 has introduced BioWare's new series of gameplay footages in his previous blog post, and now here is the second part of it. In this video you can see the Redcliffe Castle, where the Inquisitor, Dorian, Iron Bull, Sera and Leliana encounter Dorian's former master, Alexius and the Venatori.

    I made some comments and forums about my thoughts on the series and so far not much dice. Anyway, I want to discuss people's feelings on Dragon Age and if it needs improvement or not. Don't get me wrong. I find it interesting, but I believe I favor Mass Effect as an RPG more. Not only for the clear karma system, but also because it has more third options than DA and The Witcher. From what I've heard, there were less to none in 2 than in Origins. I understand that you to support Mages or Templars, but I would've liked it if you were able to keep Sebastian/Alistair/Harrowmont/Caridin and Anders/Loghain/Bhelen/Branka working together long enough to survive the games. You can cure the Werewolves and keep the Elves and there's a similar situati…

    BioWare officially released the gameplay demo that was seen at E3. Though we have seen this video before, Mike Laidlaw walks us through this with detail, as well as highlighting abilities, skills and upgrades.

    Notably, those of you wondering what party banter would be like, the instance between Iron Bull and Sera at 8.00 is rather hilarious. Though we've seen this before, there seems to be an intention that a new series will spawn from this.

    July 9, 2014 by Lazare326

    Raptr recently asked us, the BioWare fan base to come up with questions for the Dragon Age team. The Q&A in its entirety can be found here.

    A whole raft of important news was given here, with some vital answers detailing the voice actors/actresses of the Inquisitor as well as highlighting the extent to which we can craft items and sadly revealing that Orzammar will not be present in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

    A special thanks to Star Metal Knight who had the pleasure of finding this, so all dues go to them.

    Along with Josephine being officially revealed tonight, an interview with her writer, Sylvia Feketekuty has been posted online.[1]

    "Josephine has worked for years as an ambassador in the royal courts in Thedas. She’s very familiar with Orlesian politics, which comes in handy. She’s an excellent mediator and speaker. Crucially, she knows just how hard it can be to change people’s minds, and how much someone’s ego is tangled up in being “right”. Josephine prefers to gently steer people into agreement whenever possible, but she’ll take a stand when needed. There’s occasionally an iron fist beneath that velvet glove."

    BioWare has finally revealed the girl everyone's been referring to as "Scribbles", whose name, as it turns out, is Josephine Montilyet, and is an old friend of Leliana's. Her main role in the Inquisition is to be its ambassador, dealing with diplomacy, forging alliances and maintaining the good relationship with those allies. Her brief profile can be read here.

    Here we have an interview detailing Cullen's role and character in Dragon Age: Inquisition. After his reveal yesterday as one of our prime advisors, there is no doubt that in the coming days, more information will be revealed about the advisors of the Inquisition, with the "Scribe Girl" being a prime favourite to be revealed next.

    The link to the interview can be found here.

    Brienne Battye asserts that: "Cullen spent more than half of his life in service to the templars. He's gone through a lot over that time. He survived what happened to the Circle Tower in Dragon Age: Origins, then watched Kirkwall fall to chaos in Dragon Age II. In Inquisition, the sky's torn open, demons are running loose, there's war… things aren't exactly looking up."

    Here we have a demonstration by the voice actor of the female Inquisitor in BioWare's latest game Dragon Age: Inquisition. As well as this, she details the authenticity she puts into her acting, in a rather humorous video. Although it's a rather comic-like demonstration, for those who are planning on playing as a female Inquisitor, it's sure nice to know that it could be in the hands of a talented voice actress.

    Cullen is the next character to be featured on the Inquisition website, revealing him as being a "vital component" in the foundation of the modern Inquisition.


    If BioWare follows the pattern it has thus far stuck to, fans can expect an interview with Cullen's writer, followed by a profile of the final advisor, the as yet unnamed "Sribe girl".

    The Collector's/Inquisitor's Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition is now available for the PC in Europe.[1]
    Unlike the PC Edition available on GameStop.com, the Edition for Europe retails for €10/£10 cheaper than the Editions available on all other platforms at €159.99/£129.97. The reason for the lower cost of this edition is that it does not include the Flames of the Inquisition DLC, which will be available for purchase separately.[2]

    Following her official reveal yesterday, an interview with Leliana's writer Sheryl Chee has been released.


    Chee describes Leliana as "not as carefree" as she was in Origins, presenting a more guarded personality. However, players will also see Leliana "coming to terms with her past" and "where path might take her in the future".

    "She has many names. Most know her as "Sister Nightingale” or “the Left Hand of the Divine.” To the rare friend, she is Leliana. They say she found faith amid darkness, and that her devotion to the Maker is matched only by her devotion to Divine Justinia V, a woman who is both mentor and savior. Those who have earned her loyalty know her as a steadfast ally. But enemies of the Divine know to fear her, for she is the shadow behind the Sunburst Throne—the one who watches and waits, who …

    Following the profiles released for the Inquisitor's nine companions, it would appear that BioWare are now releasing character summaries for the advisors working for the Inquisition.

    BioWare has concluded its unveiling of the Inquisitor's nine companions with Solas, described as "The Mind".


    Though Solas was confirmed as a companion months ago, an official profile has been released which describes him as an apostate, who taught himself magic and spent years "exploring the spirit realm of the Fade and coming to an understanding of its denizens that few others could claim". Solas prefers his own company, though has emerged from his solace as he "will not stand idly by when his knowledge of the arcane could mean the difference between salvation and utter destruction"

    Dorian's character profile is up!. In it, David Gaider discusses the exiled magister's plan to foil a Tevinter plot, his witty personality and his interactions with other party members, particularly Vivienne.


    Dorian is also revealed as being gay, the first "fully gay" character David Gaider has worked on. His "refusal to play along" with the facade of perfection worn by Tevinter magisters causes a rift with his family, and "contributed to his status as a pariah".

    Thanks to B.S.S.T for finding the news!

    The mustachioed, renegade Tevinter mage known as Dorian has today been confirmed as being a companion in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Dorian was previously seen in various trailers and more recently in the E3 demo of Inquisition.


    Dorian is of noble lineage, but is a pariah and outcast as he opposes "everything his homeland has come to stand for". His magical ability makes him the "envy of his peers" while his demeanor is charming and witty, if a little cocky.

    Upon the reveal of Cole recently, an interview with Patrick Weekes from BioWare has been revealed, which can be found here, who was originally penned by Gaider, and now by Weekes.

    Weekes says the following: "Imagine going through this world knowing that you're different, but not knowing how. Imagine trying to find out the truth about what you are—a mage? A demon?—and never being sure that you can trust the answer, or that your friends will still support you when the truth, whatever it is, comes out.", as well as this he describes him as valuable for those who want a member "who can move around the battlefield undetected, sinking daggers into enemies who never see him coming, Cole is your guy."

    New Companion Cole

    June 23, 2014 by Sports72Xtrm

    Meet Cole, the Ghost of the White Spire. You may remember this character from the novel Dragon Age: Asunder. Is he a spirit or a demon? No one knows. "All Cole knows for certain is that the world is full of pain and he must find his place within it. Those who wish to restore order and help the helpless will find him a strange but unwavering ally. Those who use their power for selfish reasons may never see Cole again—if they remember that he was there to begin with."

    The suspicions held by many fans have today been confirmed, as BioWare have released a companion profile for Cole, the elusive assassin first featured in Dragon Age: Asunder.


    Cole is a spirit, "caught between the immaterial realm of the Fade and the confusing realities of our physical world." This will apparently make Cole just as ambiguous as he was in the book, yet he will apparently provide a source of unwavering companionship to the Inquisitor.

    BioWare have released new information on Varric Tethras, in which Mark Kirby, in an interview, reveals more about our beloved Dwarven companion. His loyalty is described as well as the fact that he goes on to claim that he's one of the more "popular characters" within the Dragon Age series, but it seems as though our friendly companion will not be catching a much needed break with Kirby asserting that: " In Inquisition, things are definitely worse for Varric in just about every possible way. He's hundreds of miles from home. Not a friend in sight. And the things that are happening around him are apocalyptic."

    Nonetheless, the interview can be read here.

    The Iron Bull's voice actor has been revealed as actor Freddie Prinze Jr. While Prinze Jr. is not primarily known for his voice work, he has worked with BioWare before, voicing Lt. James Vega in Mass Effect 3. This marks the second famous face which has been added to Dragon Age: Inquisition's cast, with Gwendoline Christie (AKA Brienne of Tarth) being confirmed as voicing an as yet unknown character earlier in the year.

    In the video below, Prinze Jr. describes the Iron Bull as being the "opposite of any Qunari you've experienced in the franchise."



    Karin Weekes, wife of the Iron Bull's writer Patrick and herself a BioWare editor, later confirmed that the Iron Bull would feature as a love interest.

    "Most endings are major variations based upon your choices in the game. There are only a few completely unique endings," Twitter.

    Therefore it can be assumed that 40 "major" endings does not mean 40 "unique" endings.

    David Gaider has claimed that there will be race specific romances in Dragon Age: Inquisition. He claims the following:


    "Yes. There is no guarantee that a particular gender/race combination will have as many romantic prospects as another.

    And that's fine. Romance options are not candy to be dispensed fairly and evenly, and if there's a particular character that you've decided before the game is released that you must romance, it's advisable you play a different PC. The most we can do (and have done) is ensure that there's no overall slanting towards a particular group-- it's all over the map, for various reasons."

    The source can be found here. Such a move may restrict some party romances, however NPC romances may allow a bigger variety.

    Inquisition at E3

    June 12, 2014 by Loleil

    I was lucky enough to see the Dragon Age: Inquisition presentation at E3 today and I wanted to share some of the things I saw with you all.

    • It looks gorgeous! The world feel much more alive than either of the previous installments. Villagers mill about the city and wild animals roam the countryside.
    • Character icons are stylized portraits. Dialogue icons use a stained glass look
    • The world will be reactive. For example, if you kill too many bears in one area, their numbers will decrease permanently
    • Blood splatter returns
    • You can summon your mount by whistling for them
    • Collecting crafting ingredients appears similar to Dragon Age: Origins. There was plenty of herbs to be seen as the Inquisitor roamed the countryside.
    • The tactical view now shows any st…
