No! No guest! Let me know who you are so I can love you!

Holy shit, lol. I just took down three owls (two regular/wildwood/whatever and one sakura) in the Woodland Path with just two dragons. I’ve taken dragons higher than this venue in and lost miserably against the same enemy party more than once, so for me this is like making the hail Mary pass or something. :p

If playing without companions is actually doable without driving me to rage quit, I think Commander Solo is going to be Neria’s Awakening Warden, since she’s an Ultimate Sacrifice Hero of Ferelden. And then I think I’m going to use Mari (“MAH-ree”) for that Thedas’s Hawke. With an US Warden, a Solo Commander in Amaranthine, and Bitch Hawke (seriously, she’s antagonistic just to be antagonistic; think the chip on Carver’s shoulder multiplied times infinity, directed at each and every person she meets whether family or stranger (you’ll notice I didn’t say friend; I think I had Varric locked on Rivalry before the end of Act 1)) running Thedas into the Inquisition—it’s not going to be a nice place.

SLEEP TIME IS NOW

SWEET DREAMS HUMAN

I WILL BE HERE, SHARING MY WARMTHS 

I GOOD DOG

I KEEP MY HUMAN SAFE 

This shit fucking makes me weak

So effing adorable!

Me&my dogs

My cat Ninja does this. Except she demands that the human, whether it’s Brian or I, to let her curl up her back and tail and all and we have to hold her back feet in place for her. When one of us is holding her in place like that it looks like we have some sort of stuffed animal.

whuffiesmind replied to your post: “I just had a thought, and I can’t remember which way is correct: At…”:
He’s not a mandatory recruit at the very beginning. I did a head swap for Alistair to get screenshots in the rain. You can literally be all alone-sending off Anders and telling Oghren no. Justice isn’t mandatory, either.

Yeah, I’d confirmed Anders with Brian and his compulsive play style, and just looked Justice up on the wiki.
It’d be kind of nice if the game saw what you were doing and was like, bullshit, no, you have to have SOMEONE and let Mhairi survive, but I know better than that. T-T

I just had a thought, and I can’t remember which way is correct:

At the beginning of Awakening, and again on his personal quest I guess, can you actually, 100% make Anders leave with the Templars and/or kill him (in the personal quest)? Because if not, then unless I’m forgetting someone he’s the only mandatory recruit, isn’t he? Nate can be sent away or sent to hang, Sigrun can be sent back to the Legion and eventually the broodmothers, Velanna you can choose not to reason with, or if you do reason with her you can tell her no when she asks to join you, I think you can turn Oghren down near the beginning, before the Joining and Mhairi’s death… I think that just leaves Justice, and I think you can refuse him, too.

If anyone knows the answer off-hand, let me know. Otherwise, I might start an Orlesian commander who takes on no companions and see how badly I die (I’d have to be a rogue, of course; there’s no way I’m passing up locked chests and doors).

Edit: I just asked Brian because he’s notorious for taking EVERY dialogue option and resetting before deciding which option he wants to take, and he’s positive you can give Anders away. Which just means I have to find out if Justice can actually be left behind or not.

I’m going to take this line in Justice’s wiki page to say that he can be turned down as well, meaning the Warden Commander can have ZERO companions through Awakening, in the long run. This Solo Rogue Commander run I’m considering is looking to be… interesting.

I am wondering…….

Say Bryce Cousland had indeed become king instead of Cailan. Or the Warden/Alistair’s queen has a child against all odds with King Alistair but they do not become king when Alistair dies.

Where does that leave them? I am not aware of any other traditional Theirin holdings or titles (They aren’t Teyrns of Denerim either, with an Arl in place?). So what would Cailan have been if he had lost the throne to Bryce? (Which would have been a better alternative given how incompetent Cailan was, lbr)

If Queen Anora had a child with a Cousland/a prince consort of her choice, that child would have inherited Gwaren on their grandfather’s side and/or Highever on their father’s side IF Fergus doesn’t remarry. But at least they’d have Highever to fall back on as a base.

But with the Theirins……where does it leave them? Has their hubris become so great that they have no backup plans or is that just something not explained in Canon? Or did I miss anything?

Probably, yes. Either they’d be granted land for a new teyrnir (I still think there should be something in the southwest) or else they’d just be set up somewhere for life to do as they please and have the honorary title Teryn of Denerim again, whether given responsibility or not. The name alone is a HUGE deal, after all, and a future generation could still challenge the Landsmeet on the Theirin argument and possibly win.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I think the reason the Theirin line has no teyrnir is because they founded the royal line. Calenhad (the dude the lake is named after) was a Theirin. So idk about any hubris, it’s not like they suddenly came into power and immediately got rid of everything else. Don’t think Calenhad planned on becoming a big king with a castle either, I mean he was pretty much just uniting a couple of barbarians then. 

So, nah, I don’t think they ever created their own seperate teyrnir or anything, but just as Celene could return to her Winter Palace in Halamshiral, if the royal Theirin line ever would have ended, I’m sure there would have been accomodations for any surviving members of the royal family.

Unless of course the line ended in disgrace or simply because there were no heirs left. Like it can technically end in DA: O. In which case the nobles wouldn’t give a shit to do anything, I guess. If Alistair doesn’t make King he doesn’t get any gold either. 

There was originally a Teyrnir of Denerim, but when the Teyrn (I’m assuming also Calanhad, I don’t remember 100% at the moment) became king, he became “Teryn of Ferelden”. As such, Denerim didn’t need it’s own teyrnir anymore and was reduced to an arldom.

And even if there were no direct successor, the nobles would find someone amongst themselves with a tenuous enough connection to the Theirins to be named a candidate at the Landsmeet. Sophia Dryden was one, even though she was a Warden and was SUPPOSED to leave well enough alone. (Hm, sound familiar? Seems like we aren’t the only Wardens meddling in politics after all.)

Four spirals this morning, with a fair bit of variety. The parents were Ananas and Wrath, and while my pineapple’s tiger gene pushed through just fine, I was really hoping Wrath’s smoke would hit at least one of the babies. *shrug* Oh well, maybe next time. 

am going to put these guys up on the AH starting right away, but if anyone from here or my FR friends list wants one of these babies either send me an ask here or email me right away so I can get into the site and pull said dragon off the AH and set up the CR for you. (You can send me a message on FR, but I don’t get that notification until I go to the site. Asks forward to my email, or if you want to just email me it’s the same username at gmail.)  Mutuals from either site are free, AH is the first price listed, non-mutuals’ CR is the second price listed:
