Posted in Actual Play, Fourth 100, Podcasts with tags , on 5 December 2021 by Mawdrigen


Episode 394

Vyker’s got that look in his eye that says someone is about to pay, and with a tied up Elf and a scene of destruction its likely its someone close by.

Unfortunately then a bunch of angry villagers turn up to have a talk, and let’s be honest here none of the Strang Acquaintances have much luck with talking.

Deploy the violence? Probably.

Episode 393

The Strange Acquaintances are getting out of Orlais, and going to Vyker’s most favourite place in the world… Ferelden.

Having heard that one of the towns is having some curse related trouble (that they may or may not have brought upon themselves), they decide to go and take a look and try and be big damn heroes.

Yeah. This lot.

Its time to murder Bleyan in a cellar with the aid of some mages.

They dealt with the people following them, but now they have to talk to them which is even more terrifying. However… there’s also an evening of hobnobbing with the Nobles which for the Strange Acquaintances is a fate worse than death

It’s nearly time for the ball, just a few last things to sort out, such as the routes that our heroes will take, and buying something called Gutripper. What could go wrong…

Episode 382

With their previous plan utterly scuppered the Strange Acquaintances now have to scramble to keep up. Do they help Bleyan in the hopes of getting him alone later. Or do they just ensure whatever he is up to goes really REALLY badly.

Plus they need invites to the ball!

Episode 381

The Strange Aquaintances get closer to hunting down Bleyan with the decision to actually go to the brandy parlour with some hastily constructed cover identities. With people so cunning and stealthy, surely something won’t go amiss right? Right!? Right…

Episode 378

The Strange Acquaintances are still trying to find out about Bleyan and manage to work out where best to “deal” with him. However this is being made very difficult by the game the nobles play in Val Royeaux. Everyone knows everyone else but somehow does not seem to be able to help with where the guy actually is!

Re-Dragon Age: Haven holidays (all dragons inclusive)

Posted in The Witterings of Bloodied with tags , on 7 July 2014 by bloodied

Tea: Just water

Demons defeated and mages enlisted, it was time for our heroes to do an Indiana Jones and find Dragon Age’s equivalent of the holy grail, Andraste’s ashes. Many of Arl Eamon’s knights had apparently been attempting this but had come back empty-handed. Could we succeed where they’d failed? Well, it’d be a short game if we couldn’t…

Re-Dragon Age: Fade Away

Posted in The Witterings of Bloodied with tags , on 22 June 2014 by bloodied

Tea: Still hot; still water

Every game, no matter how great, has that one segment. You know the kind; that moment all momentum screeches to a halt and tedium envelops the player in an all encompassing malaise. Bored, you grit your teeth and wade forward, hoping your patience can last until you’re back to the fun stuff. Half Life had Xen. Mass Effect 2 had the planet scanning. Skyrim had the Soul Cairn. Dragon Age: Origins has the Fade.

But I pre-empt myself.

Re-Dragon Age: There’ll be skeletons over the red cliffs of Redcliffe

Tea: It’s hot, so no tea, just water.

When we’d left our heroes, they were setting out on their epic quest. This was immediately interrupted by plot development, as we were shown the capital, where Teryn Loghain (he of the obvious villainy) had rocked up and was declaring himself regent, on the grounds that King Pillock the first was dead and his widow just so happened to be his daughter. This annoyed some of the Banns (the nobles who aren’t quite Arls, apparently), with a chap called Tegan being especially arsey and making insinuations about the King’s death. Personally, I was just trying to figure out how Loghain had gotten all the way across the country in a matter of hours. Clearly he moves at the speed of plot.

Re-Dragon Age: Origins (of a Replay)

Posted in The Witterings of Bloodied with tags , on 26 May 2014 by bloodied

Tea: Créme Caramel tea from the Cult’s home away from home, The Tea Shop in Covent Garden, London. I may also have had a couple of pints with Omarscen at the pub shortly before this, but I’d like to think that’s not relevant. I’d also like to think my beard makes me look stylish rather than demented, so that shows you how effective mind over matter really is.

Reading Mawdrigen’s excellent posts on learning to tank in FFXIV, I wondered what I could contribute to the Cult by the way of blogging about computer gaming. Not being much of an MMO player, beyond a stint on Planetside 2 that was scuppered by changing work shifts and a couple of months on WoW that began to help Loka get a zebracorn, there wasn’t much I could contribute from that angle. Then I remembered that just yesterday I began another runthrough of one of my favourite games, Dragon Age: Origins. Mightn’t it be interesting for me to share my thoughts as I start the 40 to 50 hour trip down Ferelden’s memory lane?

Well, that’ll be your personal opinion, frankly, but I’m going to write about it regardless.
