So I’m making a new Dragon Age: Origins module to practice in the Toolset. Sort of a fan fiction on what happens in Fereldan while Hawke is wreaking havoc in Kirkwall.
I didn’t want to make a bunch of OCs for the sole purpose of populating the party picker, so I’m using old ones from Origins and other places. Then, judging on how likely they are to have made it that far, how entertaining they are to write, and how many of their specific class I already have, they’ll get struck off, one by one.
At first, Jowan and Tamlen didn’t stand much of a chance considering you can and likely did kill them both, but then I jokingly wrote them as having the same recruitment mission and…
Tamlen: Selfish, annoying, hideous HUMAN! Jowan: Hey! You’re not looking too hot yourself!
Tamlen: Why do I even bother? Jowan: Oh, so you’re finally tired of ranting? For three hours I was seriously considering tearing my ears off. Tamlen: You should, that might brighten my day.
Tamlen: (Finding a dead herbalist) I wonder what happened to him. Jowan: I guess you could say he— Tamlen: DON’T YOU DARE! Jowan: …ran out of thyme.
Tamlen: One reason is all you need for me to consider not killing you! Jowan: You’re wounded too and you need a healer?
Jowan: So his minions were— Tamlen: JOWAN, DO YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE?! Jowan: (Stares Tamlen in the face) …kept in the dark. Tamlen: Looks like you just ran out of thyme.
