    Default Not Every Hero is Sane: (Let's Play: Dragon Age: Origins)

    Playgrounders! Lend me your eyes!
    I have before expressed desire to do a Let's Play and continually lamented over my ability to actually, y'know, do one. Suddenly, I was struck with the realization that I do, in fact, have Dragon Age: Origins, the and the ability to take and upload screenshots from said game. What was I waiting for?
    And so, I offer up this humble offering to you Playgrounders:
    I'll run through a LP of DA:O for you guys, I only ask one thing before I set down and begin:
    What kind of character shall we play?
    Please submit a vote for Race, Background, and Class. For ease of those who have not played the game, here is the list:
    (Humans)
    Human Rogue
    Human Warrior
    Human Mage
    (There is only one back-story for the martial classes, and only one Mage Backstory)
    (Elves)
    City Elf Rogue
    City Elf Warrior
    Dalish Rogue
    Dalish Warrior
    Elven Mage
    (Dwarves)
    Duster Warrior
    Duster Rogue
    Noble Warrior
    Noble Rogue
    (The "Duster" backgrounds are confusingly labeled "Commoner" in-game, when they're more like a member of the "Untouchable" caste, performing criminal acts just to survive, far below "commoner")

    And, of course, what's our level of "shininess? Will we be a Goody-two-boots Paladin of All that is Good and Holy and Righteous? Murderous Thug? Remorseless "professional"?

    LP will be told via Text split up with pretty screenshots. I've yet to test to see if the dialogue screens can be capp'd, and will jet off to do that as soon as I post, but will nonetheless find a way to relay them for your story-being-told-to pleasure.
    Um... vote now?

    Ooh, LP for this, sweet!
    Female City Elf Warrior: slaughter everyone in wedding dress until meet Morrigan. You can wear a helmet, boots, etc, but only a wedding dress for armor: But upon meeting her you can wear armor.
    I'm not sure whether 2 handed, TWFing, or weapon/shield. You can choose.

    I like professional too.

    Duster Warrior, building up from humble origins and trying to be as good as possible to make sure nobody has to suffer the life he/she did.
    It's been a bit, GitP. If you're reading this, you're either digging through old stuff, or I've posted for the first time in forever.

    If you want to stay in touch, reach out to me on twitter (same username).

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    I vote for a Dwarven Noble rogue, as a remorseless pragmatist, who does what he/she must to survive... and regain her lost status, as far as it is possible.

    Human Female Rogue, out to get as rich as she can with as little personal risk as possible. Which generally means a lot of personal risk for other people.

    Whatever you do, you must seduce Darrian, or whatever that guy's name is.

    Dwarf Noble Rogue. Let's seal the deal, shall we?

    Cut-throat, just like his/her upbringing.

    Current Count:

    Rogue - 5

    Mage - 2 (One Elf, one Human)

    Human - 2
    Urban Elf -3
    Dalish - 0
    Dwarven Noble - 2
    Duster - 1

    Male - 2
    Female - 4
    Unspecified (Defaults to male, because I'm male) - 4

    Remorseless - 3
    Professional - 2
    Martyr -1
    Good - 2
    Sociopath - 1
    Pragmatist -1

    By current count, we're going with a City Elf Male Rogue who gives no quarter to his foe, and maintains a "It's my job" attitude about generally doing the right thing.
    And is bisexual. Not that it really matters. (For the lulz, I will be attempting to persue all possible romances and hit all the optional sex scenes, to include the three-way with Isabella and at LEAST one male and one female prostitute at the Pearl)

    Don't forget the four-way with Isabella, Leliana and Elfboy. And given this plan, there's only one possible character name to pick:

    Ron Jeremy.

    I'm gonna throw my hat in for a female City Elf with a 'professional' attitude. Not, of course, that I'd object to frequent face-stabbings for the lulz.

    It's impossible for at least five reasons

    Unless you have a guide, of course.

    Ahem. Anyway, I'll vote for professional evil "whatever it takes" duster dwarf rogue, dual axe wielding, heavy plate.

    Sweet LP. How about Male city elf warrior, a professional mercenary, but a martyr for some sort of in-game cause, an unusual anomaly amongst his usual personality of "get it done good and quick".

    Blood Mage.

    Introduce yourself as a man (or woman) of wealth and taste. Choose the option that leaves the greatest number of people dead. If this means, for instance, sparing Zhevran so he can kill a massive number of people later and be utterly loyal to you, so much the better.

    Put ranks into coercion but avoid peaceful solutions; better to get two groups to kill each other.

    Okay, guys, here's the scoop:
    I'm going to shut down my human mage for as long as it takes to watch one episode of Dollhouse on Hulu. This is to give the computer some time to rest. After the episode is over, I'm going to return to this thread, make the final vote tally and begin the Let's Play.

    For the information of interested parties:
    This Let's Play will be played on "Normal" Combat difficulty. I've only played through on normal once before, and that was with a human rogue.
    I have the following DLCs:
    Blood Dragon Armour
    Warden's Keep
    Stone Prisoner

    Since it looks like the character is going to be an Urban Rogue, this is to inform you that I will be dual-wielding instead of going the archery route. I'll take the Duelist spec at level seven, but will still go through the Isabella scene for it, to cut down on that "Cheating!" feeling.

    Isn't lockpicking a talent line, though?
