Welcome to Dragon Age (tabletop RPG, as seen on the YouTube series TableTop with Will Wheaton)!
The nation of Ferelden is under siege as the full weight of the 5th Blight. The king lays dead having fell in the Battle of Ostagar, betrayed by his own uncle and current general of Ferelden’s army teryn Loghain Mac Tir. Into this chaos heroes will emerge. Once humble (maybe) massagers sent off to Denerim, the capital of Ferelden, they would withstand the assault of the Darkspawn lead by the Arch-Demon itself. This campaign will chronicle the journey of these heroes from the road leading to Denerim, the Battle of Denrim and encompass their stand in the town of Crown’s End. Decide whether you ultimately end up heroes to the people of Crown’s End or their newest ruler as you decide the fate of the entire populace housed in and around this remote town at the cross roads of destiny.
This game will be using the locale Green Ronin table top role-playing game, with some house rules which focus stunts being generated by high rolls instead of randomly rolled doubles. This campaign will run the player characters (PCs) from level 1 to level 20 and focus on the end of the 5th Blight (Dragon Age Origins) and reflect the Mage – Templar War highlighted in Dragon Age 2. This game is easier to pick up than other RPGs and new players to Dragon Age and/or role-playing are welcomed. We will meet every other Tuesday starting with a character creation session which will also cover some world building as the players vote (secret or not so secret, player’s choice) on what major choices the Hero of Ferelden and the Champion of Kirkwall would have made. These choices will be reflected in the game itself and choice will be a large focus. The party (players) will have lives hanging in the balance, ways of extracting more wealth and maybe even a romance option here and there to make or you could just go with the flow.
Dragon Age is a darker themed RPG where shades of gray tend to be more common and where you can decide to be whichever type of ‘hero’ you wish to be. You start with selecting an origin which determines your character’s background, social standing and species. Some will be restricted and there will be a cap on the number of mages the party can have. Will you be a city elf, struggling against a system that views you as little more than worthless? A surface dwarf shunning your ancestral home and no longer even viewed as a ‘true dwarf’? A human noble who is burdened with a family name or ready to take advantage of the power that name carries? Each origin will have an impact on the people of the realm which each being a positive and a negative at one point in time during the campaign. Players may even struggle to be accepted within the party at first although surviving some near death experiences should help bring the group together.
Are you ready to join the fight, make morale choices, reap rewards and lead Crown’s End to a future you choice for it? Are you ready to experience Dragon Age? If so than join me July Tuesday the 19th (and every other Tuesday beyond that) to start becoming the hero (or tyrant) you have always wanted to be!
