INCREDIBLY ATTRACTIVE PEOPLE who are simultaneously GIANT DORKS are my ULTIMATE WEAKNESS
imagine the Warden passing through a little village in the months after the Archdemon was slain, perhaps with their LI. imagine the people there recognizing them, pointing and whispering, maybe even cheering. imagine some of the Warden’s young fans rushing out to surround them, begging them for tales and maybe for autographs or something
now imagine the look on the Warden’s face and the pain in their heart when one of those bright, young little faces looks up at them with a proud grin and says “someday I’m going to join the Grey Wardens, just like you”
I feel like the entirety of Dragon Age: Origins is one big “Oh yeah, and there’s another downfall to being a Warden.”
I’m gonna be mad if Bioware doesn’t, at the very least, allow “Nobody expects the Inquisition” as a dialogue choice somewhere in DA3
i’m really nervous about playing inquisition tho because i won’t be able to run to the wiki for every single decision i have to make
See, I think the first playthrough should always be like this. Do it blind. Experience what happens when you make choices in the moment.
There’ll be a million chances for do-overs, for suicide runs, for perfect runs, for plays where the only goal is to romance a certain LI. But you only ever get one first time.
