Orlais has all but openly declared war on Ferelden. Indeed, a formal declaration of war is known to be impending. Confident that the Ferelden army is pinned down in the south at Ostagar, fighting darkspawn, the Orlesians will invade with the spring.

But the darkspawn have seemingly withdrawn from Ostagar, and despite the troubling visions of the Fade shared by all the Wardens of Thedas, no one knows to where they have withdrawn or can guess where they will rise to attack next.

While King Loghain and the allied army march north to meet the Orlesian threat. Queen Bronwyn awaits in the north with plans of her own.

And deep below the surface, the Archdemon Uthermiel awaits, unseen, for the first thaw.

One of my favorite authors to work with, was the late Arsinoe de Blassenville. I counted her as a personal friend.

Three of her Harry Potter fanfics are to be found over in the Potterfic collection. But she did not write only Potterfic. Her author page on ff.net includes several works based upon the film “The Patriot”, as well as this work, which is based upon Bioware’s popular game, Dragon Age.

I gather that the game has gone through several editions with a growing in-world history, additional adventures, and an expanding cast of characters.

I would not know about that, since I do not play video games. I have a CreativeCloud supscription. Building books is much more fun than games.

Arsinoe, however was introduced to Dragon Age by her daughter, played it, and found herself engaged in fix-it fic. As so often happens, the story grew in the telling and matured into a five volume fantasy series.

Despite my complete lack of familiarity with the source material, I found her version of the adventure to be highly engaging and asked for permission to base a publcations project on the story.

In keeping with something as heavily dependent upon its visuals as a game, once the production was well under way, I made a point of contacting Bioware and getting their permission to use concept art from the game in the project. If you recognize it, it is there by permission.
