STRAIGHT FROM THE ROYAL KENNELS
I DID NOTICE THE CLEVER ADDRESSING!
I SHALL NAME HER SPUNKY!
ILU BB TY SO MUCH!
I’m MEGA jealous but also 500% more encouraged to get my own.
SO CUTE. AH.
It’s been a little while since we first unveiled our first Mabari and Nug plushes at PAX, so we’re now proud to offer them both here online at Sanshee.com.
These two are our first Dragon Age items, and we look forward to bring you more as Dragon Age Inquisition approaches.
Note: Mabari and Nug do not come house-trained, and we are not responsible for any antics or mischief that they may cause.
I have a nug that perches atop my monitor.
The mabari will now soon be mine. Oh yes.
OH MY GOD

"I will not stand by and watch you treat all mages like criminals while those who would lead us bow to their templar jailers. The Circle has failed us, Orsino,even you should be able to see that. The time has come to act. There can be no half measures.There can be no turning back. There can be no peace." - Anders
ANDRASTE TAKE THE WHEEL
Confession: I never understood why people were upset that all the love interests in DA2 were bisexual. I thought it was the best thing in DA2. If you don’t want to romance someone of the same or opposing gender, then don’t romance them. I play on the PS3 and really wanted to romance Alistair with a male Warden but was unable to. I loved that I could romance any love interest, regardless of gender, in DA2. I shouldn’t have to be on the PC with mods to romance whoever I want.
I’ll just pop in here to say this:
To me, it’s never been about letting players romance “whoever they want to”. I do not believe any player has a right to romance whoever they like with whatever character they happen to be playing.
The point of the bisexual (or “playsexual’, whatever you want to call them) romances in DA2 was to ensure that anyone playing a character of a certain gender or sexuality had options. That’s it. Were there more characters with romance arcs, I’d have been just as happy making some specific to particular genders. Seeing as that wasn’t the case, I was okay with sacrificing what some saw as “realism” (I think what they really mean is “verisimilitude”, though I disagree even so) to allow more options for everyone. The writers wrote each character with a specific idea in mind for how they worked, and the only thing that changed from one PC to the next was the player’s perception of them— which is interesting to note, and doesn’t disqualify it in any manner from being real as they see it, even if I wouldn’t prioritize that over basic fairness.
What will be perhaps frustrating (and no doubt inevitable) if we ever do provide a larger number of romances and thus have no need to make them all bisexual/playersexual, is that the complainers will undoubtedly cry victory (“we made them change it!”) and at least some of those who liked how it worked will then complain that we either caved or that they have had their right to romance anyone they wish removed. Or both, I suppose.
But such is life. :)
While I loved that DA2 let me romance the character I wanted regardless of the gender of my Hawke, I get that that’s not always going to be a reasonable scenario.
I think what would be interesting though, is if the player was at least given dialogue options like they were with Aveline so that they can express their own (or their character’s) sexuality/interests, without the game creating this weird environment where everyone is totally up for dating the PC. I’d even suggest maybe such dialogue options could lead to later awkwardness in conversations with that companion later, or that companion avoiding romantic discussion around the PC. (I would assume there might be some way to trigger that, but it could also probably get complicated real fast?)

So, during Act 3, Sebastian has a quest called, ‘Faith’.
"Do you never intend to give a public answer, Your Grace?"
When you enter the Chantry, Sebastian is begging Elthina to please step in and publicly pick a side to put down the brewing mage-templar conflict.
"The Chantry’s teachings are clear. Those who turn against them would not listen more to me than to Andraste."
What’s absolutely amazing about this is that she is so utterly faithful that she can’t comprehend anybody not understanding the Chantry’s rules or finding them ambiguous, unclear, or worthy of discussion.
So she literally will not even try to do anything about the situation. She feels it isn’t her place, and that whatever she says won’t matter anyway, that it’s peoples individual responsibility to follow the rules and that they’ll just have to wait for them to figure it out themselves.
More important stuff under the cut.
