(No, I still hadn’t played it, I wanted to complete my ‘canon’ game first…and then decided fuck that, i just wanna see and i’m tired of dodging spoilers. /cough/)
I have to say that, aside from a few great things (sigrun and velanna in general) I’m not terribly impressed. The Mother is creepy as balls, but I’m only able to handle her entire existence if I force myself to Not Think About It. Which is pretty much the only way I can handle any and all mentions of Broodmothers because a;slkdjf;aijwe;lkwasdnfsldkjfa;ldskjfsdij;fsd DO NOT WANT, but The Mother really takes the cake.
And unless my copy is glitching the hell out, I don’t particularly appreciate the way that half the dialogue seems to be written for a human warden and only a human warden especially when it comes to dealing with the Dalish. So far, Velanna is the only Dalish who has at all acknowledged that she’s dealing with a Dalish warden. But even when we ran into what remained of her old clan, their entire dialogue tree treated the Warden like she’s a shem’len, short of actually calling them one. Same goes for all of Velanna’s dialogue outside of the wending woods.
Velanna, I love you darling, but you do not need to explain the way the Dalish works to someone with the most complicated, obvious vallaslin etched onto their face. I think they know, dear.
And being attacked for absolutely no reason by “elven warriors”? jdsadfljkdsflk what the hell, y’all? really?
