David Gaider Interview

The tireless work - when it comes to spreading the word about the pristine awesomeness of Dragon Age - of the Grey Wardens over at finally payed off. They scored an interview with Dave Gaider - the lore keeper of the Dragon Age universe - himself.

As for what it’s like to work for BioWare, it’s interesting. In some ways it’s like any other job – there are days you want to do a faceplant on your desk or just go home, pull the covers over your head and never come out again. There are days you hate everyone you work with, and are tempted to light the place on fire because that’s really the only way the unclean spirits will ever be driven out. Then there are days when you turn to the others sharing your office and have an amusing chat about the more disturbing aspects of Sailor Moon, and they’re right there with you – not a single beat where they stare at you in bewilderment like you just stepped off the last flight from Mars – and you realize that nobody else gets to do this sort of thing at work. There are also days when you get to write the most amazing quest and somehow it all comes together and nothing is cut, and you discover that everyone you work with is trying just as hard as you are to make it perfect – not because it’s their job, but because they love games as much as you do. Those are the days when you realize you have the best job in the world.

Light the place on fire? You sound a bit angry Dave. You should consider to announce a Sprechverbot at work, which basically means that no one is allowed to talk to you unless he's addressed first. Works very well for me. Another possibility would be to have everyone address you with *Your Highness* or *Grandmaster*.
