Whether you hate or love Anders, i think we can all agree that he is a pivotal character, the one that sparked the fires of War.
Assuming he has been spared at the end of Dragon Age 2, it is stated by Varric that the other mages ressented him for throwing them in this war, and he had to leave.
So he would appear he is now alone.
I can't lie, i was hoping for a quest to find him in Inquisition, just to see how much he would have changed (if he only had). And also, depending on his persona, whoop his ass.
One thing reignited my hope for his future appearance, though it would be kind of a stretch...
And it is that concept art for Inquisition: http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20141216194219/dragonage/images/d/d7/Inquisition_Hermit_concept.jpg

Why does a game enchant people like us and what is your opinion on Games? To me Games are a wolrd of fantasy of worlds unseen by the common norm, a world of different reality then our own, a world that we (as gamers) could go too to escape our normaly stres life. It is where imagination and dreams come alive.
But where is the line between reality and reality. People of today view games as another influence, but forget how the word works, how harsh it is, and how it easily it can influence the mind. Same goes for life, they forget that the mind set of a person is based on how he or she grows up and the environment they are in. so they place the blam on the medium and not the sorce, the true sorce. Sad as it is, it still goes on today.

Spoiler warning for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Continue at your own risk.
Possibly the hardest decision in not only Dragon Age: Inquisition, but perhaps the entire Dragon Age series (past and future) or Bioware games in general, is choosing between saving Hawke or the Warden.
Basically, Hawke and his/her Warden friend join your party as you work to clean up the giant mess the Wardens have made. An arch demon appears, destroys a tower, and the entire party falls to what would certainly have been their deaths had the Inquisitor not been able to open a rift to the fade.
Thing is, once you are in the fade, it’s hard to get out. And at the end of the line, you have to choose who is going to stay behind and help cover your exit (the game warns that charac…

From GameInformer "BioWare has announced a closed beta program for Dragon Age: Inquisition's Patch 5 for the PC version of the game. The patch includes customization features, a new shop called the Black Emporium, and the much-needed party storage feature.
"The Black Emporium contains epic weapons, artifacts, new crafting schematics, and the Mirror of Transformation. This lets you change your voice and facial appearance, and other customization options are available via an item tinter that lets you change the color of your armor with crafting materials. The patch also contains accesability improvements such as additional mouse button bindings.
"The party storage feature will be in the Undercroft.

We have just received the answers to the questions presented to Alix Wilton Regan that we gathered from the Dragon Age community in early January 2015! Alix is one of the voice actors for The Inquisitor.
1. What made you want to do voice acting? How did you start out in voice acting? Erm – desperation? ; )
- In all honesty I never really planned my voice-acting career, but the opportunities I’ve been fortunate enough to be offered have been some of the most brilliant turns of fate in my life. I have played a huge range of characters in computer games to date (everything from warrior princesses, to raging queens, to malicious goblins, to a cactus) and the creative freedom is a huge joy. Voice acting is now one of my greatest pleasures and the…

I've been lurking a bit on this wikia (mostly regarding the game and lore) and after playing Inquisition i started to put things together. This is really my two cent, feel free to add your thoughts, but remember, let's keep it civil, thank you.

If you were worried whether or not BioWare will release any additional content to Dragon Age: Inquisition any time soon, worry no more, for Mark Darrah confirmed DLC is in the works via his twitter.
If the official website is to be any indication, Xbox One and PC will get the new downloadable content or contents before Xbox 360, PS 3, and PS4, as the website states that "Premiere Add-On Content Coming to Console First on Xbox One".
No more details are known at the moment, and thus it is not known whether it will be a story-based DLC, or maybe more of an item pack.Read more >
My first Inquisitor was a angry female Mage who wanted mages freedom and she did just that. World didnt end. Leliana is a Revered Mother and Celene is still on the Throne, Grey Wardens are still alive and well and all the Templars are dead. This is how it should be. BUT, my second Inquisitor is an opposite of my first. My frienly female rogue Qunari sided with Templars and wants only order and peace. Mages be damned! But I really like my first Inquisitor more.

So, ever since I finished up my first playthrough of Inquisition, well actually from the moment I started it, I’ve had theories and story ideas flying around my head, colliding with each other. Suffice to say, the words were mush. So, I’ve decided to, yet again, share my ideas with any of you who care to read them.
Goes without saying, but...
Mucho mucho spoilers ahead.
Seriously. This is the point of no return....
Well sorry for the great old big wall of text... Now...
Where to begin, ah yes! The fate of the inquisitor!
That epilogue left everyone pretty much gobsmacked, right? Solas is Fen’harel(?), or at least someone known by the mantle of “Dread Wolf”. And he wants to help the elves of Thedas, minus Sera. Since in his words, she is as much …

EA today released its financial results for Q3 of Fiscal Year 2015. EA does not give out specific numbers anymore but they did have this to say about the sales performance for Dragon Age: Inquisition:
"Dragon Age: Inquisition captivated fans and critics worldwide and it quickly became the most successful launch in BioWare™ history in addition to being named to more than 200 “Game of the Year” lists. The single player campaign alone has been enjoyed for more than 113 million hours."
It would seem that a Dragon Age 4 is almost a certainty at this point.

Tiran, The White Wolf, Herald of Andraste, Lord Inquisitor, Slayer of Dragons, Nemesis of Corypheus and Chosen one of The Maker.
Many are the titles that follow Tiran, aka The White Wolf, the name of my first Dragon Age Inquisition character. As you (or some of you at least) can probably guess from the name, Tiran is slightly inspired from The Witcher's main protagonist, Geralt. Most of the inspiration can be seen in Tiran’s physical appearance; he has neck long white hair, purple eyes (because The Targaryens are awesome), a solid jawline, manly features and somewhat rough skin.
Class: dual dagger rogue - Killing is awesome. killing fast and with an ice cold attitude is even awesomer (made myself a word)... its a win win.

On my 1st Play thru I found a Wooden Platform laying on the Ground on Top of a Sand Dune in the Southeast Corner of the Map. When I did a Search I could see a Chest and a Ladder to Climb Out. I must have spent 2 hours running around trying to find the Tunnel that led into this spot. In my Frustration I hit the Jump Key by accident. I saw the Platform Wiggle, so I kept Jumping. After the 4th Jump I fell into the Pit. Inside the Chest is 200gp or so and a Unique Greatsword called Verdict. It is a Level 11 Item and you need to be Level 8 to wield it. It is DPS 181 and as a Level 8 Warrior it Kicks Ass.Read more >
There has been some argument about what "Qunari" actually are, rather specifically what the word means. Qunari is sometimes used to refer to all people who follow the philosophies of the Qun, but it is typically used to refer specifically to the Ox-men, those with the metallic skin tones, huge size, and horns.
There are also special terms to refer to the culture that predates the Qun, and for converts to the Qun. Its been commented that the Kossith, the culture that predates the Qun, may have had people that hardly resembles the modern Qunari as well.
I think I have it worked out, it has been said in a few sources that the Qunari practice a form of Eugenics and/or selective breeding for the traits they desire.

- Fixed several conversation lines which would take a very long time to advance to the next line u…

As 90% of those reading this are likely to know, Dragon Age: Inquisition represents each party member with a tarot card, along with other things. You are also likely to know that these change depending on choices, story progress, etc., and are full of symbolism up the wahoo.
But what does the symbolism mean? Or, in this case, "What the fuck is up with that snake?" These are questions we hope to answer in... oh, look, the title's up there already, guess this intro was needless.
Sadly, you may consider this examination not too in-depth. You are always welcome to probe further of course. Engage that southerner mind. Either way, I'm sure, prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of a ride. Mini-essay away.

I read The Masked Empire, and I know where his name comes from and everything, but I also know that the word for slow is "felas" and arrow is "assan". Why isn't his name "Felasassan", then? I realize that this would obviously sound more ridiculous, but wouldn't that be correct? Or is it just a diminutive, like how the name "Julian" means "youth" because it is derived from the Latin "juvenis", meaning youth? So that it sounds similar and therefore has the same meaning even though it's not exactly the same. I'm probably reading too much into this and you all probably have no idea what the answer is, but what the hell, why not ask anyway? StillAlive (talk) 03:01, December 4, 2014 (UTC)Read more >

This is where I discuss what paths the series might have had if the developers thought of it. Here, let's discuss possible ideas for extended content. Anders is something of a can of worms, so it's probably best we don't discuss him. However, I am thinking of recruiting the Dwarf bombardier from Awakening to better up the Chargers odds in the Iron Bull's mission for his people. That way we can keep the Chargers, the Qunari alliance, and improve Bull's standing. Don't know what to think of anything else right now aside from that. Ideas, please? And speak positively and politely.

I owned an Xbox One, so that means I have the option to buy a monthly payment of EA Access, granting me access to a trial of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Lucky me!

Unfortunately, I forgot to make sure that my channel store it for later, so I can't share it with you. Thankfully, I have a good enough memory to describe the gist of it, so onward to glory!
