[Tribute] Dragon Age: Origins

I made another fan video and this time I used the game Dragon Age: Origins and the song “This is War” by 30 Seconds to Mars.

The song is already made for the game Dragon Age and since I love both so much, I thought of creating a 3 minute and 20 second music video of the 6 minute song. Thank you Bioware for making this addiction happen (and that’s a complement). I can’t wait for the next expansion.

NOTE: I’ve lost my old file so this is the only remaining copy.

Spoiler Alert

Notes:

The Martyr – I used Morrigan for this scene since in the story she was forced to join the party and her sole purpose is to carry out Flemeth’s plan. It’s now the Grey warden’s choice to complete Morrigan’s mission or not. To further my explanation on why I chose Morrigan as the martyr was if you chose to have a dark secret with her she did not really chose to be that way; to carry and raise a demon child for to what Flemeth’s plan to have her there in purposely.

The Victim (1) – Leliana. Once she opens up to you you’d learn that she was used by her former bard master, Marjolaine. She was a victim because of what Marjolaine did and setting her up as the “fall guy”.

The Liar – Arl Howe. If you played a human noble, you’ll know what I mean.

The Honest – Sten, he’s the only person throughout the game that didn’t lie on anything and most especially on what he did to the farmers.

The Pariah – Tern Logain. At the landsmeet he accused the Grey warden of taking hostage of his daughter to divert his crimes.

The Victim (2) – If you played all of the characters in the game you’d find that the Couslands of Highever were the only ones that has gone through Arl Howe’s treachery which is also one of the key plots on Logain’s plans. The story behind the Dwarf race was only about politics and nothing above ground. On the Elven race, it’s only about keeping their community in one piece.

The Messiah – The Hero. It’s your duty as a Grey warden to make it all happen.

This video – You’ll notice that my character is a human noble. She is my favorite and I tried all of the possible endings in the game. The only thing that I have not tried yet is to have a romantic relationship with Zevran.
