I'm almost done with Dragon Age: Origins, a video game that has eaten 140 hours of my life so far. Being constitutionally incapable of putting in that much time on anything without overanalyzing it, I have Thoughts. I'll put them behind cuts to prevent spoilers or excessive boredom.

One of the big benefits Dragon Age has, over a tabletop game, is that I can't argue with it. I'd really like to shake the writers by the lapels and ask...

...about Riordan )

...about Morrigan's offer )

But the Great Halibut Smackdown is again reserved for Riordan. )

It makes Morrigan look almost clever in comparison. )
