    For anyone who was interested in Dragon Age: The World of Thedas, it appears they intend to release a new volume. Dragon Age: The World of Thedas Volume 2 is already on Amazon, and while there's no description as of yet, the release date according to the site is April 21, 2015 and the price is $27.79.

    Along with the coming The Art of Dragon Age: Inquisition, we will likely have a chance to learn even more of the extended universe of Dragon Age. Is there anything you hope for finding out more about?

    A new Q&A took place in which the Dragon Age writers were asked about their opinions on villains and the writing process behind creating a villain. The interview can be found here.

    David Gaider noted how his favourite villain was Loghain. As well as claiming: "I could imagine myself stepping into his shoes and taking some of the same actions he did… which is a little frightening." As well as this, Sylvia Feketekuty claimed hers was Meredith.

    The interview gives a greater insight on creating villains, with Gaider asserting that "The story is largely from the hero's perspective, so you have to account for the villain's presence from that hero's viewpoint. The player is only aware of who the villain is and what they're doing insomuch as their cha…

    First of all, I'm fairly new to the Dragon Age World. I played Origins when it came out, only picked up Dragon Age 2 a few months ago, and learned about inquisition last month. I've read summaries of the novels and comics, but haven't gotten an opportunity to pick them up myself yet. So, please give a little grace if this topic has already been covered. I've been following the trailers for Inquisition fairly closely, and something that intrigued me (and a lot of others) was the shot of what APPEARED to be the Inquisition fighting the Grey Wardens. I say appeared because it is always possible to infiltrate or impersonate (i.e. kill enough Grey Wardens or creates emblems on your armor to throw others off).

    Now, one of the most recent trailers…

    Having rewatched the new trailer repeatedly, I have concluded that the voice over was done specifically to throw us off. Personally I dislike the idea of having to fight an old god as the "final" boss. I understand that bioware have taken a large amount of inspiration from skyrim, especially in terms of the open world-y-ness, but the dragon we see in this trailer looks far too much like Alduin for my tastes. And unlike I first thought, it was not glowing red because it had been "infected" by red lyrium. So, unless we discover that the old gods have incredible power compared to an ordinary dragon, or even an Archdemon, the final battle may well end up simply being a repeat of the Archdemon battle from Origins, which would be a bit tacky and…

    As many have heard of it already, Electronic Arts and BioWare is at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. It's been said they will introduce new content from Dragon Age: Inquisition amongst other EA games, so this time it's worth keeping an eye on the event.

    They have released a trailer, in which we might see someone familiar... confirmed by Laidlaw. The appearance will also be customizable.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition official trailer - The Enemy of Thedas:


    In this video we can take a peek at customization, crafting and some more combat against the Avvars this time, with a human female warrior, Blackwall, Cole, Solas, and as a twist, a friendly Avvar:


    The first time the conference was streamed, it started to lag heavily around the 9th minute in the video. …

    For those of you who don't know, Trevor Morris is the successor of Inon Zur as the lead composer for Dragon Age: Inquisition. I am a big fan of his, and thus I wanted to share his past compositions with you all, of what could potentially be featured in a similar way in Dragon Age: Inquisition. What do you think of his style?

    • Vikings
    • World Map theme
    • A compilation
    • Another Compilation
    • Tudors
    • Cesare and Lucrezia's theme
    • Ordained
    • Messenger of War
    • Immortals

    These are among my favourites, especially the last one which suits the main feel of DAI from what we've already heard.

    All credits go to the brilliant composer and those who put an effort into compiling his work.

    Courtesy of PC Gamer UK and BioWare user ViSeiRa we have lots of new information on Dragon Age: Inquisition. Mild spoilers follow.

    Gameplay

    • Red Lyrium is an anti-magic substance... an opposite force to normal (blue) lyrium.
    • Tactics are in (automated AI settings as described by the writer) and apparently you can set how much mana a mage companion can keep in reserve and at which HP threshold would a companion use a heath potion.. so looks like more grained control over tactics.
    • After clearing parts of an area you can set up camps in that area, they give you access to scouts and you gain power, the resource you spend on operations.
    • Certain parts of a map can be locked until you clear other ones.
    • You can mark certain areas as operation points on the…

    Alix Wilton Reagan, who provides the British accent option for for a female Inquisitor, is in a new video discussing her role. In the video she discusses things like the importance of having a female protagonist and how she determined what type of voice to use. We also get a brief glimpse of her voice in action.

    BioWare is at Comic Con San Diego, and they have brought some more demos to the fans. So far they have been showing us the already well known demo with the female Qunari mage, but it seems they decided to show us what it's like with a male human rogue Inquisitor this time. One of the newest features seems to be the throwing knives, which has been available only for Tallis in previous installments. Other than an introduction to the dual wielder rogue gameplay, however, the areas and enemies are the same.

    The video is of low quality as of yet, if there will be a video longer and of better quality than this, it will be updated.

    Thank you Star Metal Knight for this great catch!

    (And Maker Bless You, Anthony Heare)  Poorly-written, guilty pleasure in the works since the summer of 2012 (G-d, how I miss that year). Complete with misspellings, grammar mistakes and Bullshit. Plus, is the "teenager" even fathomable in the DRAGON AGE universe?


    Prologue:


    Stories have a way of overtime becoming nothing but bullshit.


     My father, Osen, told me this one night before bed next to the fireplace. He said that even the stories that were myth would overtime have their own facts changed from one generation of Bards to the others. The Chasind knew that and that must have been the reason why they threw half empty mugs at him, but not as well as my father who made somewhat of a living telling other people's bullshit from centuries past a…

    Dear Everyone;

    While I haven't been on this wikia very long, I have made myself look like a heartless bitch and for that I would like to apologize for the way I have been acting on chat; I apologize for acting like an impolite, hostile, abrasive and commanding individual. I have hurt some of you, and for that this apology is meaningless. Yet, I do hope you will forgive me and I wish you all the best of luck.

    After my wikia is deleted (which I hope is soon), I am going to delete my account and thus will be leaving this community. It has been a wonderful experience, but I have been going through some things and I mustn't stay here any longer. I fear that if I do, I will do something that could hurt the people closest to me.

    I hope you all have …

    While I impatiently wait for Inquisition to be within my clutches, I plan out several different character race and class combos. The sad thing is is that will be all for naught. I will start up a random character with a decent name, then get my ass handed to me within an hour of the game. Soon after I will delete the character and start a second character which ends up being vastly superior to its predecessor in every way possible. It happened to me in origins until I decided to play the Human Noble in my first full play through. I made it to Orzammar with my city elf before being demolished by the broodmother each time. Oh well, the cycle shall continue in Inquisition I suppose.

    BioWare announced that there's a new release date for Dragon Age: Inquisition. In North America it's the 18th of November, while in Europe it's the 21st of November. They mention no particular reason for the delay, only that "this last bit of time is about polishing the experience" they want us to see.

    As long as the official link that was both tweeted and shared on Facebook is dysfunctional, here's an article that has the news post copied.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    "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."

    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."

As well as this, she details the authenticity she puts into her acting, in a rather humorous video.

    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.

    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".

    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.

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."

    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."

He's hundreds of miles from home. Not a friend in sight. And the things that are happening around him are apocalyptic."

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."
