I changed earth with world as it seems more appropriate, feel free to change it back if you think it was correct Elvhen Veluthil 13:01, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
- No. You're right. Good catch. :)
- If "earth" was used to mean 'dirt' or the 'ground,' then it would have been fine as it was.

The only relevant screenshot from in-game, that I can see, for both The Maker and the Golden City is that of the Black City seen from the void. It seems rather redundant to have the same image on 3 pages that have similar topics though. Anyone have any input on the matter? Ammorth 20:05, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, Golden City links to this page, The Maker doesn't have an image, and as there is no screenshot here either, I put one in.
His dialog does not necessarily point towards it always having been black. In fact, his statement "The light. We sought the golden light. You offered... the power of the gods themselves. But it was... black... corrupt. Darkness... ever since. How long?" Seems to indicate that it WAS golden (hence the aspiration) and that it was black and corrupt UPON them entering... and not always having been as such.
Sign your comments, and he wasn't exactly speaking clearly the whole "Darkness... ever since" he might have been refering to himself after entering the black city for all we know. He seems to state that it was supposed to be gold but he never saw it as gold, so basically the legacy dlc has answered questions about the darkspawn origins but it's raised questions about the nature of the golden/black city seeing as it seems to be the origin of the taint, maybe the magisters were lured there to spread the corruption of whatever the city is--Gboy4 (talk) 10:13, July 28, 2011 (UTC)
Is it Possible that the golden City isn't a heaven or a solace for the dead... Maybe it was the home of something darker maybe where the corruption took form or a prison for the corruption (...the Magisters must have contracted it while they entered...) Didn't Corpheyus say that Dumat Tricked them (if not Sorry..) maybe the Old Gods were trying to do something...(But What?).. Power?

I had some theories of my own, while a few have recently been debunked in my head from reading further into lore some still make sense. As far as it ever being a golden city? I don't believe it was, because it was located in the fade, which is the realm of spirits, demons, and dreams. I don't know how many of you remember it but, without spoilers to any story, there is a gift found in Orzammar in the hall of the shaperate called "The Search for the True Prophet" that makes my mind wonder about the truth behind the chantry lore. Which if chantry lore is a lie, which is likely because as is customary history is written by the victors, then how much about the "evil" of the Tevintor's is true? I don't doubt that the Tevintors reached the fabled "golden" city but I also believe whatever they found there was the cause of the blights. Also question: In all of dragon age lore are there any recorded events of mages becoming abominations before the Tevintors breached the golden/black city?Deepshots (talk) 13:14, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
- Tales about the golden city and the darkspawns are older than the Chantry. Corypheus said "The city, it was supposed to be golden". Andraste appeared over 2 centuires after the First Blight began, the Chantry was found not by her buy Orlesian Emperor 2 centuries later. The Golden City isn't a tale of the Chantry, magisters believed in this and searched for this, it's their tale. People can lie, but not numbers. Magisters belied in the golden city before the 1st blight and Andraste.126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:47, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
