    Tags: BioWare; Dragon Age: Inquisition

    This is likely fake, but hey, it's fun. A poster at Bioware Social posted some screens of a marketing survey describing the plot for Dragon Age 3, as well as the game's companion design. The alleged plot synopsis goes as follows:

    The great nation of Orlais, the most powerful empire in Dragon Age, tears itself apart in civil war. The stout men and women of Ferelden struggle to recover and reclaim their nation from the horde of vile Darkspawn that lay waste to its lands a decade ago. The Chantry, the once-unified faith of the Dragon Age world stands divided. The Templar order has broken away, claiming the church has become too lax in policing the dangerous powers of the mages. The Mage circles have rebelled, believing the Templars have become too strict, too zealous in their duties, and too quick to slaughter those who step out of line.

    The world of Dragon Age is one on the brink of collapse, and when a desperate gathering in the name of peace becomes the epicenter of a magical blast that decimates the Chantry's leadership, it becomes clear that someone or something is manipulating events to drive the world into chaos.

    From the ashes of that explosion, something new arises: The Inquisition. As the Inquisitor, it falls to you to build up your power and martial your forces, uncover secrets and build connections across the world. You must explore forgotten spaces, uncover ancient mysteries and uproot those who would destroy the fabric of the world.​

    Another part of the survey has to do with the possible names for DA3:
    • Dragon Age 3: The Breach
    • Dragon Age 3: Exarch
    • Dragon Age 3: Inquisition
    • Dragon Age 3: Inquisitor
    • Dragon Age 3: Apocrypha
    There is also a glimpse at DA3's character design, as well as the companions' names and backstories (pictures have been taken down, but the descriptions have survived):
    • Dorian: Dorian Pavus is a magister. The title conjures fear of arcane masters who once enslaved nations. Dorian may wield power of the magisters, but he delights in not being what you’d expect of them. Brazen and clever, this outcast is on a crusade to rid his homeland of its corruption.
    • Sera: Sera is young, frenetic, and a brat through and through. She revels in the athleticism of being an elf, of being different. But her culture isn’t elven, or, for that matter, strictly human. It’s the underbelly of the city. In her network of rogues, what you do is more important than where you’re from, and friends open more doors than [titles?]. Robs from the rich, keeps it.
    • The Iron Bull: The Iron Bull is a long way from home, and prefers it taht way. A slap in the face of typically humorless Qunari, he loves drinking, killing, and looting-not necessarily in that order. The head of a vicious mercenary company, he’s known for excellent pay and brutal punishment. It’s been a ten year party, but the Bull may find that old loyalties die hard.
    • Cole: A long time ago, a young man died a cruel death in a dark place. And now, somehow, there is Cole. Was he a spirit of a demon? Is he human now? Cole’s not sure it matters anymore. Hounded by memories that aren’t his, incisible in a world he can stalk like a shadow, the rogue must decide between joining the living or preying on them.
    Take that for what you will.

    As expected, Bioware is going back to the tried-and-tested formula of "gather your forces to kill the ultimate evil". Nevertheless, I remain hopeful that DA3 will be a decent game.

    Why?
    I mean, DA 1 was a decent game, but DA2 was terrible.

    They should do the right thing this time and name it Dragon Age 3: Not Origins.

    I like how they don't even pretend give a fuck; even in descriptions:lol::lol::lol:

    EDIT:

    More interracial/xenophilia and related stimuli teasing BioDrones? I would never guess.

    Archetypes or not- the idea of 'Cole' is weak even for bioware standards. Its retardation is compareable only to godawful characters the teenage DnD players tend to make.
    Bioware got used to create the character personality via accumulatting traumas and emotional problems. I wonder why they can't just make a smiling sociopath, which is less infuriating, and I believe even easier to write. Like you know, this Lannister guy in HBO Game of Trhones 2, or Feyd Rautha / Sting in Lynch's Dune.
    ...
    Maybe they're saving it for possible future games, like DunEA :eek:.

    Were they enslaved with necromancy?

    Your ignore list.
    They were probably enslaved with the false promise of becoming a dragon.

    Given the ME3 drama, the title should probably be "Dragon Age 3 : PR Damage Control".
