I just created a new section for Flemeth with her involvement in DA2. I think we need a new template for this, but I can't say I am very skilled in that area of coding. Thoughts? --Selty (talk) 06:46, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

ready to go. I was just waiting until it was needed, and hoping we might have a quote by the time it was Icon wink. I think I'm leaning towards white for now, though no doubt it will get refined as time goes on, so I shall go create it. As a side note, would you be able to add references to your section on Flemeth? Friendship smallLoleil Talk 07:32, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

I think the white, as well. Great work, Loleil, as always! Thank you <3 --Selty (talk) 07:58, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Aww thanks. Mainly it was just copy/pasting the work of Tierrie hehe. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 08:06, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

The white is good :) stands out more. There is gunna be alot of Flemeth so good idea starting a new page for her :) PinkOldShoes (talk) 11:22 17/07/2010

If I am going to be perfectly honest, I think the following is the best:

The image needs some tweaking, but like the Origins spoiler warning, it matches the site and the infoboxes. It is also easily discernible from the Origins version. Max21 (talk | contr) 06:55, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
I know we're light on for concept art at the moment, but I have a problem with making the concept art of male Hawke the focus. Although we will undoubtedly being seeing a lot of him, if we are going to focus on a character, I'd like it to be one that definitely appears in the game and I feel that using that image extensively furthers the idea that Hawke is a male only character. I don't mind the idea of using the red background for all games, but not with that image. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 07:38, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
We could use Flemeth's concept art and leave the quote area blank until a good quote can be found from her. Hay Julay (talk) 07:47, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm might work for now. I have zero skills with photoshop so it would be up to someone else to create the cutout of Flemeth, but I'd be interested to see what it would look like. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 09:05, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
Well, obviously it could be changed as more information is provided. I am just going on what we currently have: a bunch of images of male Hawke. Also, keep in mind that the logo you use had a male Hawke as well... Max21 (talk | contr) 15:12, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
I know he was there, but he wasn't the focus. The dragon was (to me anyways). Friendship smallLoleil Talk 01:43, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, here' a Flemeth one:

I think I prefer using this one until we can find a permanent solution. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 01:43, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

This thread is a spoiler :P --GunmadMadman (talk) 19:55, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

While I do think the Hawke on splattered red background tag is the sharpest, I'm mindful of Loleil's concern as well. I really am not crazy about the Flemeth tag however. Flemeth looks fuzzy and very metrosexual. If we're not going to use the Hawke tag then I like the red dragon on the white background the most. It also has the advantage of not having a character whose appearance in the game is a spoiler on it either. -Vim- (talk) 03:44, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I prefer the Hawke version until something better comes along. The red tint of Flemeth definitely makes it blend it, which is a little weird looking. And we can't do something just because there are other variations of Hawke. He's on the game's logo! It doesn't get clearer than that. I think we should just have a vote. Max21 (talk | contr) 04:05, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
I'd really rather we don't drag this out with a vote. I still have reservations about the use of the male Hawke on our DA2 spoiler tag, but as we only have one other officially released character picture at the moment I can let it go for now. However, I'd like the image replaced as soon as a viable option becomes available. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 04:54, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, which is what I suggested before. I will go ahead and change it. Can you think of a better quote? Max21 (talk | contr) 05:00, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Not yet. Hopefully August 17 will help us out. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 05:05, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Loleil, I'm just throwing this out there, but would replacing the second sentence "The legend of your Rise to Power begins now." with "Who is the Champion of Kirkwall?" reduce the feeling that you're playing a male only character when associated with that pic? -Vim- (talk) 05:42, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Are you suggesting that my Hawke won't have a glorious rise to power Vim? Tonguesmiley But I actually think the current quote works just fine. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 09:40, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Anything but, Loleil darlin. Some of the most ambitious individuals I've ever known have been women. So if you're looking forward to your Hawke's "glorious rise to power", I wouldn't dare try to dissuade you. Icon wink -Vim- (talk) 13:46, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
