So I finally picked up Dragon Age: Origins the other day. The game really is worth the buzz surrounding it; it might not be for everyone, but for those who are down to do a little old-school dungeoneering on the PC, it really doesn’t get any better than this.

I never played Neverwinter Nights or Baldur’s Gate, so this is all new to me, but I definitely am having a blast. Created a rogue (as I usually do) and it was smooth sailing all the way up to the first floor of the Tower of Ishal, which smashed my party flat a couple of times until I was forced to acknowledge that it might be time to apply some kind of actual strategy here.

Only one thing about my first day in Denerim struck me as truly odd. You can see the picture of my created character above. So, 5 minutes into my origin story I’m hanging out in the throne room, and am introduced to my father.

Well, you know, Vedic’s a bit light-skinnded, so maybe, you know, his mom…

Now, that’s odd. I mean, I guess there’s adoption, but we’re talking about a scenario where I’m supposed to clearly be a member of the ruling family, royal lineage, etc. At least one of them has to be my parent, right? So, how could this have happened. And who’s this old family friend introducing himself…?


Only brown person I’ve seen so far in the castle. It just, you know, kind of makes you wonder about this poor kid’s life growing up with all these questions.
