Hail Grey Warden!
Venture with us into the land of Ferelden as we reveal more about BioWare’s upcoming dark fantasy epic Dragon Age: Origins! An enchanting and deadly lass named Leliana highlights this edition. See below for more information and a link to a video on this lovely bard from Orlais. We appreciate all of the tales you have been relaying to your readers and look forward to reading your coverage this week.
In Orlais, bards travel throughout the courts of the land, trading entertainment for the hospitality of the aristocracy while simultaneously playing a more sinister trade: Often, they are secretly spies or assassins. Leliana, however, speaks little of her history as a bard, having left her life in Orlais behind long ago. She came to the village of Lothering seeking refuge in the Chantry, where she has assumed a life of quiet contemplation and prayer to the Maker, asking Him to forgive a life of deeds that her fellow sisters can only guess at. Although it is the last path that Leliana would ever choose for herself, she believes that the time will soon come to take up that old life once again. A higher calling awaits her, and with it, a road to true redemption. The Maker has told her this, and she believes.
