every time someone defends elthina by saying she was “pro-peace” i just want to shout NO SHE WASN’T!!!!!!!!!!!! at the top of my lungs
mages were already being massacred, in “secret”, by those in power. it was an unfair slaughter — it’s why anders said open war would be better, because then mages could at least defend themselves.
she was not pro peace. she was pro status quo. she cared about peace for herself, for the “people” of kirkwall, she says. but she forgets that mages are also people, people she is supposed to be protecting. they are not some… inconvenient political hotbed of sub-humans whose deaths you can ignore for the sake of a superficial peace.
no, if she truly cared about peace, she would have cared about all those mages (and their families) that were being murdered. but she didn’t.
that is not peace.
"All Anders ever does is whine and complain—he never actually DOES anything to help mages!”
YES FINALLY. I’m a practicing Norse Pagan and I find the Marvel community very offensive. It really pisses me off how they ACTUALLY think that Thor and Loki are brothers. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
actually what i meant was that the marvel comics are incredibly loosely based on norse mythology so theres nothing to be offended about, if you want to react do so towards neo nazis or white supremacists who use runes and mjölnir as tattoo motives while actively and often violently oppressing people uwu
people complaining about a woman being thor because pagans might find it offensive like oH i think i missed the part of norse mythology in which thor is an alien and the half-brother of loki (what the fuck is up with that) also that lil bit in which thor comes to earth and hangs out with captain america and iron man GEEZ its almost as if the marvel character is VERY LOOSELY based on a norse deity instead of strictly following norse mythology (please, if you want somehow accurate thor comics, go read valhalla or something)
like, if pagans want something to be offended about, look at all the white supremacists wearing thor’s hammer like some fucking medal of honor on their skin the thunder god wouldnt stand for this friends we must riot
"release date pushed back to november 18th"
"From Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition
I’m writing to let you know that Dragon Age: Inquisition has a new release date of November 18, 2014 in North America (November 21st in EU). We appreciate the enormous support we’ve received from all of you to get to this point, and while this extra few weeks may not seem like a lot, I know the game you’ll play will be all the better for it.
Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever. It was that goal that motivated many of our decisions: moving to Frostbite, bringing race choice and customization back, improving tactical camera, building a team of characters whose relationships evolve based on your actions, and most importantly, crafting an epic, nation-spanning story that both draws upon past games and takes you to many new places in the realm of Thedas.
I’m privileged to be a part of a team that has been working very hard to surpass every measure they’ve set for themselves. That has meant completing huge amounts of game content, fixing bugs both big and small, and improving the overall experience. This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on.
Thank you again for your patience and support!
