Dragon Age: A New Blight

Post  TheDarkCynder on Sun Jan 09, 2011 12:59 am

"And so is the Golden City blackened
With each step you take in my Hall.
Marvel at its perfection, for it is fleeting.
You have brought Sin to Heaven
and doom upon all the world."

-Canticle of Threnodies 8:13

The Chantry teaches us that it is our Sin that brought the Darkspawn to this world. The mages had sought to serve Heaven. . . But instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption. They returned as monsters. The first of the Darkspawn. They became a Blight to the lands, unstoppable and relentless. The Dwarven kingdoms were the first to fall, and from the Deep Roads, the Darkspawn drove at as again, and again until finally we neared annhilation. Until- the Grey Wardens came. Men and women from every race, mages and barbarians, beggars and kings. The Wardens sacreficed everything to stem the tide of the darkness and prevailed. Four centuries after that victory, another Archdemon has arose. The Wardens knew the Darkspawn would return, but those who once honored the Wardens has forgotten... Another uprise had begun, and the Wardens were successful once again.
Centuries have passed sience that last Archdemon was slain, ending the previous Blight. And though Darkspawn were still a major threat not too soon after the Blight, they were slain nevertheless, and the victory was given to the Grey Wardens. Mysterious Darkspawn are starting to appear on the horizon. Could it be another blight?
You are a Grey Warden recruit and have yet to expirence the pain and thrill of The Joining. You hear many rumors of this ceremony, it seems to come with great pain and agony.

(Qunari, Human, Elf, Dwarf.)

Classes
Mage-
Rogue-
Warrior-

There are specializations for each class.

Warrior:

Like a Star @ heaven Berserker- The first berserkers were dwarves. They would sacrifice finesse for a dark rage that increased their strength and resilience. Eventually, dwarves taught these skills to others, and now berserkers can be found amongst all races. They are renowned as terrifying adversaries.

Like a Star @ heaven Champion- The champion is a veteran warrior and a confident leader in battle. Possessing skill at arms impressive enough to inspire allies, the champion can also intimidate and demoralize foes. These are the heroes you find commanding an army, or plunging headlong into danger, somehow making it look easy.

Like a Star @ heaven Reaver- Demonic spirits teach more than blood magic. Reavers terrorize their enemies, feast upon the souls of their slain opponents to heal their own flesh, and can unleash a blood frenzy that makes them more powerful as they come nearer to their own deaths.

Like a Star @ heaven Templar- Mages who refuse the Circle's control become apostates and live in fear of a templar's powers- the ability to dispel and resist magic. As servants of the Chantry, the templars have been the most effective means of controlling the spread and use of arcane power for centuries.


Rogue:

Like a Star @ heaven Assassin- The assassin finds any notion of fairness a quaint ideal that has no place in combat. Poisons are their weapon of choice, as are crippling strikes that inflict persistent wounds on their foes. As killers, assassins are a marvel of stealth and efficiency.

Like a Star @ heaven Bard- Bards follow an Orlesian tradition, acting as assassins, spies, saboteurs and following other secretive pursuits in the constant, and sometimes petty, struggles between nobles. Having taken the minstrel's art to new levels, bards are skilled performers and master manipulators; bards can inspire their allies or dishearten their foes through song and tale.

Like a Star @ heaven Duelist- Duelists are deadly combatants who prefer to fight in light armour and strike with light, but precise attacks. Experienced duelists have preternatural reflexes that allow them to evade their opponents' clumsy blows, as well as strike with remarkable precision.

Like a Star @ heaven Ranger- Rangers have an affinity for open country and wilderness, but as independent scouts and militia, they are opportunists, not stewards of nature. They exploit every advantage of their environment, and can lure wild beasts to attack their foes.


Mage:

Like a Star @ heaven Arcane Warrior- Among the ancient elves, there were mages who trained their magical arts to augment their martial prowess. They channeled magical power through their weapons and bodies, becoming terrors on the battlefield. Most consider these skills lost forever, but they may still linger in forgotten corners of the world. Arcane warriors may learn to use their magic score to satisfy the strength requirement to equip higher-level weapons and armor.

Like a Star @ heaven Blood Mage- Every mage can feel the dark lure of blood magic. Originally learned from demons, these dark rites tap into the power of blood, converting life into mana and giving the mage command over the minds of others. Such power comes with a price, though; a blood mage must sacrifice his own health, or the health of allies, to fuel these abilities.

Like a Star @ heaven Shapeshifter- Rumors speak of barbarians that hold secrets of transforming the body into the form of animals. The Circle of Magi denies such rumors, but this rare art survives in the forgotten corners of Thedas. Mastery of their bodies allows shapeshifters some protection, even in human form, making them durable opponents and staunch allies.

Like a Star @ heaven Spirit Healer- Not all entities of the Fade are demonic. Many are benevolent entities consisting of life energy, which can be called upon to mend flesh and heal disease. Spirit healers focus on channeling the energies granted by these spirits, making them indispensable members of a party of adventurers.
