In an Age of Dragons, the skies are dark and gloomy. The land is now barren and twisted. A darkness that overtakes the land in the wake of the Darkspawn's Taint. This is what makes those foul creatures so dangerous. Their blood is poison, their mere presence a disease on the land.
Just days ago news arrived in Denerim of the battle in Ostagar. Cailan, King of Ferelden, and his army have fallen to the horde. The land is now left unguarded against the looming apocalypse.
The small village of Lothering now stands in the path of the Blight. Farmers and their families pack up their entire lives and head north. While some look to take advantage of this seemingly lawless chaos. Lothering has become a temporary haven for people of the area, due to its position as the entrance to the north. Refugee's are pouring in just as fast as leaving. Bandits now look to exploit this event for their own means, as the chaos ensues. The Chantry is stretched to a breaking point trying to help the displaced people. What soldiers that have remained are spread across from helping villagers evacuate, to making preparations for what seems to be their final stand.
What road will you choose?
Dragon Age is a dark fantasy setting where magic is outlawed. Only Circle Mages may use magic openly without worry of being hunted by the Chantry's mighty Templar's. Unlike most fantasy settings the Elves of DA are viewed as second class citizens and do not live for hundreds of years. They are broken into two types of Elves. The Dalish who wander the lands homeless and avoid almost all human contact. And the City Elves who live in crowded Aliengages within the cities. There are only two known Dwarven Thaigs left, which the Dwarves seldom leave except to sell their wares. The might champions known as the Grey Wardens fell at Ostagar.
The world is known as Thedas and this rpg will take place in the land known as Ferelden. Recent events have put the nation on high alert. An ArchDemon has been found by the darkspawn and now calls upon them, forming the fifth Blight. There are several types of Darkspawn, Genlocks, Hurlocks, Shrieks, Emissaries, and Ogre's which make up this dark horde that sweeps the land.
