Mark Plays ‘Dragon Age: Origins’: Hour 20

In the twentieth hour of Dragon Age: Origins, I LOVE REDCLIFFE SO MUCH OH MY GOD. Intrigued? Then it’s time for Mark to play Dragon Age: Origins.

Hour Twenty

I think I’m close to the end of the game? I mean, I still need to save Arl Eamon, get the dwarves, kill Loghain, and then… that’s pretty much it, right? I guess I’m trying to gauge this sort of thing because I keep making hyperbolic, exaggerated statements about Dragon Age: Origins, and I’m sure they’ve all cancelled each other out by now. I have loved a good portion of this game, but sweet baby gods, there hasn’t been a single moment quite like the monster siege on Redcliffe.

A lot happened before that. I had to backtrack my way out of the caverns, passing Father Kolgrim’s followers along the way, and they just stood there??? Apparently, without their leader, they are nothing. I got alllll the way back to the beginning, where Brother Qunitivi was excited to see me. I agreed to let him open a museum of sorts. I think? I know he wanted people to visit and study the place, and I didn’t really see a problem with that. It pissed Morrigan off, so that must mean it’s a good decision. This started a pattern of Morrigan hating everything I chose to do so much, she actually dropped below a positive approval rating for me. Well, that is until I gave some sort of dragon scale necklace? Now she likes me! She is so easy to please and anger at the same time.

From here, it was time to finally head to Redcliffe to go take care of the Arl Eamon. I was there less than sixty seconds before I was approached by a guard who was severely upset. This game has followed a familiar pattern for each new place that I visit: I show up expecting one thing to happen, and I discover that the Blight has ruined every single one of my plans. In this case, Arl Eamon’s sickness isn’t the only worry I have. Turns out that “monsters” of some sort have overrun the castle and keep storming down into Redcliffe at night. I am needed to help save the day!

And so I set out to do just that. Every single time I took on a new mission, Morrigan’s approval rating of me dropped 6 points, and she’d throw another condescending comment my way about how much time I was wasting. If she wasn’t so close to getting Crushing Prison or I didn’t desire Animate Dead like my life depended on it, I’d get rid of her. WE’RE BEING BIG DAMN HEROES ON PURPOSE. MY CHARACTER HAS PUT ASIDE HER ANGRY CYNICISM TO BEAT BACK THE BLIGHT. Get with the program! At least Wynne and Alistair both gained approval points every time Morrigan disapproved of me.

Also, Teagan just reminded me of Tegan and Sara. I CAN’T HELP THE THINGS IN MY BRAIN.

I honestly expected to spend the majority of this hour of gameplay running errands and getting shit ready for the assault. I spoke to Murdock and insulted him for being a bigot; I got the blacksmith working again; I spoke with Ser Perth at the windmill; I killed Dwyn because he was being difficult and apparently that’s all you need to justify a murder; and then I lost my shit when Perth revealed that the ashes from the Sacred Urn could cure him. UM, HI, I HAVE THOSE. I HAVE THEM WITH ME. THEY ARE RIGHT HERE. Did I do something out of order? Why can’t I tell him I have them? Why is Alistair acting like he’s never heard of them before? OH GOD. WHAT. Don’t make me go back and get them again!

Also, please tell me that one of you managed to overhear Wynne and Alistair talking about a dirty sock. It was the weirdest conversation my party members have ever had without me. I DON’T GET IT.

Anyway, I talked to as many people as I could around town, hoping they’d join in the oncoming battle. I even found barrels of oil for Perth! I was happy, then, that I still had about 15 minutes until my hour was up because lord, I did not want to cliffhanger myself again right in the midst of some awesome shit. So I told Perth that I was ready for battle.

I wasn’t ready for battle.

LOOK. LOOK HOW AWESOME THIS IS. HOARDES OF BAD GUYS WHO AREN’T TERRIBLY HARD TO BEAT BUT ARE RIDICULOUS. THIS. WAS. INCREDIBLE. THIS WAS SO FUN. IT WAS LIKE FIGHTING A ZOMBIE HOARDE.

no oh my god YOU DON’T GET IT. I LOVED THIS PART SO MUCH AND I HAVEN’T EVEN MADE IT TO THE CASTLE YET. I was sad that Murdock and Tomas both died. I wonder if it’s possible for them to survive? Perhaps I should have done a better job. Oh god, LOOK AT HOW MUCH FUN I HAVE. I know it’s bad that I don’t care that much that some of the defenders died, but whoops.

Oh fuck, what the hell is in the castle? This should be fun.

    Huh, so the game doesn't have dialogue for the eventuality of getting the Urn before heading to Redcliffe? That's disappointing.

    Do you realize what this means? Bioware wasn't prepared for Mark.

  3. Gillyweed says:

    Can we talk about his hotness Bann Teagan for a moment. My City Elf Warden shamelessly flirted with him and he seemed to like it, but I still couldn't romance him, such a shame.
    I managed to save everyone in my latest playthrough, but only by making Wynne heal everybody, I can't stand failing someone. I even helped Yyblq and I can't stand him.
    There's something else I want to talk about but I'll save it for tomorrow.

  4. Tahaneira says:

    MORRIGAN DISAPPROVES

    I love how you're starting to use Morrigan's approval and disapproval as sort of a moral barometer. Morrigan's pissed at me? Yay, I'm doing the right thing! Morrigan's happy? Dammit, how many of those monsters were just babies in costumes?

    I'm not surprised you went to Redcliffe right after, and had to laugh when you discovered you did things out of order. You have no idea how much we were laughing at you in the comments, Mark. So very, very unprepared, you were. And are.

    And tomorrow it will be time for another Origin story.

    (By the way, for those of you who are wondering, Assassin's Creed III is pretty awesome.)

    Quote of the Day:
    Alistair: Yes, it seems like you've had your own troubles. What are the odds?
    Funyr: Is anyone surprised? Anyone?

    (Yes I know those are quotes from two separate parts of the game, but I had to.)

    • BornIn1142 says:

      Hmmm. Have you finished AC3? A friend of mine, who actually introduced me to the series, said he's rather… disappointed with the ending.

      • Tahaneira says:

        The way I play, I won't be finished for a week. MUST COMPLETE EVERYTHING. So we'll see, I suppose.

  5. Peter says:

    First Time Gameplay

    I will be the first to admit that I am SLOW when it comes to RPGs – I like to take my time. I'm currently completing the fourth main quest (Brecilian Forest in my case, and it's the fifth main quest if you are supposed to count Sacred Ashes as a separate main quest, I don't know), but I'm 57 hours in. So I know that I'm slow, but Mark, you definitely seem to be FAST. I'm really surprised that you've done so much in 20 hours!

    Redcliffe is great. I love it when Bioware puts their twist on all of the classic narrative tropes – here the horror trope of the small town beset by the undead. It hadn't really occurred to me because my Warden is male, but when watching your video, and thinking of Alistair as a character based on Xander, I definitely picked up some Buffy vibes. Just, the neverending hordes of undead descending on a small town? This is doing it right.

    I also really appreciated that fulfilling things like finding the oil, and talking to the Revered Mother on behalf of Ser Perth (Mark didn't mention that, or did I miss it?) ended up having an effect on the battle. I did Redcliffe MANY HOURS AGO and I don't remember completely, but I think Murdock survived for me, and Ser Perth definitely died (I didn't have the persuasion prowess yet to convince the Revered Mother to bless him). All in all, I loved that the game took into account the completion of those sidequests just to influence the outcome of this one battle. Usually when video games have a system like that (and I'm thinking of gur Znff Rssrpg gevbybtl), there isn't a payoff until the very end of the game).

    "Oh fuck, what the hell is in the castle?"
    Not. Prepared.

  6. Dr. Facilier says:

    It is in fact possible to complete the zombie horde with no casualties, in which case, you get a special helm. Very handy early in the game, probably not as much now. You can bet that I kept repeating the zombie horde till I got it though.

    • Fajen says:

      Can you use Wynn to revive them and still get it?

      • Dr. Facilier says:

        i don't think revive works on non-party members. Heal and other associated magics work though, as well as her cleansing aura.

      • Gillyweed says:

        I used heal all the time and kept them all safe, Taunt helped a great deal too.

    • pal_sch says:

      Not getting the barrels of oil seems to help. In my run I stood between the Templars and fire and let all the enemies die that way. Then during the last wave the Templars all charged into the flames and burned themselves to death.

  7. Mikka says:

    I wonder, are you going to go for any of the available romances?

  8. RadagastWiz says:

    "Also, Teagan just reminded me of Tegan and Sara. I CAN’T HELP THE THINGS IN MY BRAIN."

    I wholeheartedly approve of your mental process. Tegan and Sara should be on one's mind at ALL appropriate occasions.

  9. Andie says:

    So I take it you're not spending much time at your party camp, huh, Mark?

    • BettyTheThird says:

      I am wondering this too, as that is the place where I tend to hang out for about 50% of my playthroughs….

      but then I always go to Redcliffe first, so what do I know ;)

    • TheDMG says:

      My first play-through I couldn't figure out how to get back to camp until 3/4 of the way through the game. I'm beginning to wonder if Mark's been back to camp since the beginning.

      • Killer of Bambis Mom says:

        A few times! It's in the reviews in the past couple weeks. That's how I got all my party's weapons enchanted. I usually visit camp after each town that I conquer. I think I've been there about six times now?

    • enigmaticagentscully says:

      I tried to get my dad to play Dragon Age Origins once, and I spent pretty much the entire time yelling:

      "TALK TO PEOPLE TALK TO PEOPLE GO BACK TO YOUR CAMP AND HAVE A GODDAMN CONVERSATION WITH ANYONE."
      "But I just talked to them five minutes ago!"
      "WELL TALK TO THEM AGAIN."

      • jackiemreuter says:

        Ha! Nice. I've spent entire hours doing nothing but talking to people in camp. Turns out, that's a GREAT way to make Morrigan fall in love with you AND keep everyone else (Alistair and Wynne for instance) happy by making the *right* decisions. And the stuff with Dog are just…just hilarious.

        • cogsandcurls says:

          This is how it generally works out with me with regards to Morrigan, too. I tend to play "good" characters, but she's usually not in the party, so my party generally approves of most of my decisions and then I build up a bond with Morrigan mainly by catching up at camp and giving her gifts.

          3 playthroughs in and she loves all my Wardens to bits (Rira zl nofbyhgr tbbql-gjb-fubrf Nyvfgnve-ebznapvat Nrqhpna. Gurl jrer yvxr fvfgref).

  16. Here is the beautiful exchange you missed by not bringing Zevran with you to get the Urn, Mark

    Alistair: I didn't think anyone would find the final resting place of Andraste, but here…here She is.
    Morrigan: I stand in awe. Really.
    Zevran: Nice vase. I should get one for my house.

    srsly Morrigan and Zevran are my Lady Aeducan's favorite people with their deadpan sarcasm and their cynicism whereas Alistair just hates her for xvyyvat Vfbyqr and generally just thinking Alistair is an obnoxious man-child

    frankly i don't understand why you don't just bring Zevran with you to all the places considering HE IS THE ACTUAL BEST

    • Gillyweed says:

      I love if you take Zevran to the Hermit in the Brecilian Forest and ask him to steal from his stump.
      Zevran: Hmm When is the last time i slipped my hand into some dark hole hmm. Ah, I remember, long story that.
      I love him so much!

    • celestineangel1 says:

      Zevran is indeed the actual best. I am a new convert to the Way of Zevran.

      • Gillyweed says:

        Good to have you on board. You'll receive a welcome package containing loads of sexual innuendos, some dirty limericks, one earring and boots made from fine Antivan leather. Enjoy your stay.

    • Bookman230 says:

      Sten's reaction is pretty good too.
      Sten: Congratulations. You've found a waste bin.

      But Oghren's comment is the most interesting. Apparently, he senses that there's tons of lyrium contained in the mountain, providing an alternate explanation of the Ashes' magical properties.

    I love that this game has literally everything. Want dragons? Have some dragons. Want werewolves? Have some werewolves. WANT SOME FUCKING ZOMBIES? HAVE SOME FUCKING ZOMBIES. What more could a person ask for, really?

    So I finished my first playthough, and I'm on my second, and I have Zevran, and look, Zevran is just… I love him. I love him more than Alistair. (Because Alistair can be a hypocrite, and maybe so can Zev, but at least he admits it and he's funny to boot.) I declare my everlasting love for Zevran right here and now!
