Oh, my gosh! I can't believe it took me this long, but I JUST realized Cole is invisible and dropping the petals onto them! I always thought he was "off-screen" and then he just threw the basket at them!! Awesome work by the way!
Psst...psst....Aimo....have you read the Dragon Age comics put out by Dark Horse? Alistair, Isabella, and Varric go off on an adventure.....We get to see a glimpse of Varric's Dream in the Fade....let's just say there was a reason he wasn't a romance-able character....and why he named his crossbow what he did....
You mean Asunder? I think it's a fifty-fifty thing. He acts like a child, and when he thinks about his new friends - so to speak - he really reminds me of a child. BUT he kills people, and doesn't seem to care much about that. So I think it's both - mind, and personality.
You can bet your best pair of dwarven boots that aimo and I (and everyone else) will be romancing Varric. Because he's Varric. But a Varric x Hawke would've been better, and no-one can tell me otherwise.
Well that is true, but didn't one of the writers say that they were uncomfortable with writing a dwarf romance before? I may be miss-remembering but I could have sworn I read it somewhere. Plus the whole part where Varric says he's not into humans doesn't help. Despite all the doubt I just wrote I am still hopeful though
True but I could understand if they didn't and felt like it would cheapen his character. Like I said I am hopeful but just a little cautious I would really love either Varric or the Grey Warden guy as an LI but if I'm judging based off the last two games it seems unlikely But you are right the Inquisitor could be that special snowflake that changes his mind. Anyway sorry for being such a downer.
No not Alistair I know he was an LI in DAO though I didn't romance him much, there's some concept art for a Grey Warden that may be a companion (which I really hope he is) heres a few links to some of the concept art.
Well, it certainly felt a bit ambiguous. That's why it would be really cool if they included him in inquisition. Not necessarily as a party member, but at least some kind of notion about him. And a bit more explanation perhaps?
But anyway, as I understood it.. *SPOILER*
There was a human mage boy named Cole who was taken to the circle, locked up and forgotten. He attracted a spirit (demon?) but eventually died before the start of the book. The spirit somehow resumed his identity and forgot it was a spirit(?), wandering the circle tower and fearing to fade away. He starts to kill people in an attempt to be seen and "not be forgotten". But is it he who actually does the deeds or does he somehow manipulate Rhys to do them? I'm not entirely sure. And as to whenether Cole is a spirit or demon.. Most evidence point to a demon (his blood magic invisibility powers and the need to kill in order to stay alive) but as a person he seems nice and caring, if a bit misguided. Perhaps not all demons are evil?
That would be pretty awesome! To have Cole even mentioned would be a nice little flourish... Yes, yes, yes. More explanation would also be wonderful. Though *spoiler* since Anders blew up the Chantry (which never made sense to me because in Awakening this topic came up with Justice and Nathaniel and both times he retreated from that course of action). I find it really interesting how Fiona (from The Calling and Asunder) is a Grey Warden that no longer has the taint... Or maybe because she doesn't have the taint, she isn't a Grey Warden. Either way, she is old by this time and Grey Wardens can't be old...
Yes, our understandings are basically along the same line. In this game world, I think that everyone believes there are either demons or nice spirits. I think Cole's case would be a different... breed... if you will. A type of spirit who is mostly neutral, doing things on their own accord? Yeah, I think that makes most sense. After all, new types of super-natural happenings are occurring... Templars getting possessed, demons wrecking havoc.
About Cole, I actually really liked his character. He wasn't one of those self-less saints that are just perfect, but he had motives for his actions. Plus, he was somewhat nice to Rhys, even if he did kind of screw up his life a bit.
Heh, thanks. And yeah, I do think that Varric SHOULD be a love interest in the game! They made him charismatic and a good friend! SCREW YOU DRAGON AGE 2 MAKERS!!!!! I'm excited for DA: Inquisition, despite that I won't have the console to play the game so I'm gonna have to stick with watchin gameplays on youtube...
*lol* no, you're not stupid I always wondered what OC means, until someone explained it to me well... my main target is Cullen though we don't know yet, if he's going to be a companion or an LI. well... for Biowares good, I hope he will be one... but I guess, Varric would be a very interesting romance-option too
