Dragon Age [Interest Check]
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:27:50 AM »
I've been playing Dragon Age Origins again recently, and wondering if people have interest in starting a game. I'm open to idea's but personally prefer the Fereldon setting. We could take several routes towards it, such as the adventures of a group who were active during the events of DA:O, or perhaps set the game during the next Blight, with our originals taking the place of various people of importance, from Grey Warden's to the various Lords & Ladies, First Enchanter, Knight Commander of the Templars and what not.

If there is an interest, I'd love to hear about it and perhaps your idea's.

EDIT: ~As there's interest, here's a character sheet.

I did an RP once - one on one - where we took on the role that the player does in Origins: instead of the ONE WARDEN WHO SAVES FERELDEN, it was the slightly less epic TWO WARDENS WHO SAVE FERELDEN (and have some sex along the way).

In other words, what worked well for our RP was roleplaying our way through the game: we're recruited by Duncan, go to Ostager, get betrayed, and begin our adventure, just there's a group of us instead of just one PC.  All the NPCs from the game - Alistair, Sten, Leliana, etc. - would be present.  We'd just insert our characters into the game in place of the singular Warden.  Here's one of the posts that demonstrates what I'm trying to explain, from the RP I mentioned.

Either way, though, I'm in.  However, I'd prefer it to be during the Dragon Age.

As fun as that would be Question Mark is would require a very dedicated GM, and I know for a fact I can't dedicate such time. I'm also looking to play more so then GM. :P I find online GMing so rarely suits me.

But playing through DO:A with a party modified to suit us would be fun.

Our RP didn't need a GM.  Hell, the game is the GM.

As in the party doesn't have to be limited to one custom Grey Warden & Alistair, it could be a group of custom Grey Wardens or other custom party members that didn't appear in the game.

Mainly because video games have already set up the universe, and give a solid source for people to reference when disputes arise.  Also, because when someone gets really immersed in a game... and then it ends, it leaves them wanting more.

Oh, and what he said.  What do you have against video games anyway?  A RP is a RP is a RP.

I'll probably use Vishion in this one. He's my blood mage battle mage combo.

Are you adding the awakening classes in?

Awesome. I used the battle mage, arcane mage, and blood mage traits.

I might play an elf--not sure if Dalish or City-- ranged combatant. Hmm. I wish I could play DA to get a feel for what one of my characters were, but alas, that computer is dead.

Now I know in Dragon Age, these weren't exactly established as a playable race.

But what of a half elves?

Since the original Gray Warden Vishion all though I made him a city elf, I "fantasized" him more like a half elf half human.

I'll either be a human Warrior a Champion/Templar/Spirit Warrior. Although if we get quite fun with it I might make him a Qunari. The Arishok was one of DA2's saving graces in my opinion.

Of course depending on how we set the game, the character's might not start off with the specialization's.

Crossbow-wielding Dalish elf Rogue/Ranger. I've decided.  :-)

Do you guys have an opinion on what would be a more interesting game? RPing our way through Origins itself, or an RP set in the Origins setting?

A RP set in the Origins setting.
