Crotch, if life was Dragon Age and that was a speech then you just got yourself a permanent position in my party.
D'aww. <3. I guess I need to start min/maxing now. Shame I didn't do any of that in the first 21 years of my life. I'm... kinda spec'ed to be a blood mage right now, maybe? Strength's not bad, but it's not a stand-out stat, so I should stay away from two-handers. My dex is definitely be too low to be a rogue, and willpower and endurance are quite funny - see, I've alwaysWARNING: CROTCH IS ABOUT TO TALK ABOUT HOW STATS RELATE TO CHARACTER AND PERSONALITY IN RPGS. THIS IS A REALLY FUCKING BORING WALL OF TEXT. DIVERT HIS ATTENTION. DIVERT HIS ATTENTION. DIVE
I hate both Kaiden and Ashley, though. I also don't think Morrigan was ever a mean person, it seemed more like she was just brought up that way, but deep down she really did love your character and just wanted to be nice. It was Flemeth's teachings and her lonely upbringing that made her realllly distrustful of all people (authority figures, especially) but after you let her know that her mother was wrong she really establishes that she's a nice person.
Well, I read her like this: much like I have "always plays protoss in Starcraft" as part of my identity, Morrigan has "does not want friends" as part of her identity, built up over many years. And just as I occasionally wonder what playing terran would be like, she too thinks about friendship - but decides against it, because ultimately, she really doesn't want it. When (if) you come along and challenge that, she reacts with her usual hostility, a defence mechanism she created unconsciously to help her resist temptation (I should get around to creating a defence mechanism to keep me from playing terran). Temptation becomes too great, defence mechanism fails, self-image changes, self changes.
I will never play terran, though.
I don't know that I would say I thought she was crazy, perhaps extremely pious, but having visions in a game that is in a setting with magic, doesn't seem all that far fetched to me. Plus, again it was interesting for me to find out why she believed she had been given a vision from the Maker.
Eh... I dunno. It's an established part of lore that the Maker doesn't talk to people. Like, that's what the entire church is built around. The one time the Maker talked to someone. Leliana's claim that the Maker talked to her... well, it's about equivalent to claiming to be the Messiah. I would not bring someone claiming to be the Messiah with me if I was trying to save the world from an unspeakable abomination.
So, to ihadFG: yes.
