Part 1 – Prelude (feat. HeroQuest)
Part 2 – “Back In My Day…” The Earliest Years Of MMO (feat. Utopia)
Part 3 – High Fantasy Stepping Stones (feat. The Hobbit, The Lord Of The Rings, Skyrim)
So after far too much serious talk about High Fantasy literature, games and journeys of all sorts, this is it! The final stage. The postcript. The Coda.
Drum roll please…
Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition is amazing, and you should play it.
And now that the formal review portion of this grand finale is out of the way, here are some snapshots (equivalent to about 19,000 well crafted words) to convince you visually.
My first run featured Inquisitor Kadesh, the geometrically-tattooed Dwarf with a strikingly noble brow. With axe and shield in hand this Inquisitor laid waste to the enemy hordes, freeing Orlais and Ferelden from the unsettling prospect of demonic tyranny.
Or something like that. It was a long story.
Despite all his good work the urge to start afresh struck just hours later, and so the Second Inquisitor [title not consistent with Dragon Age lore] came into existence that very night. He is the foppish, staff-wielding human with a penchant for glossy, primary-coloured outfits. Sadly it appears that not all great leaders are blessed with spectacular facial structure and kingly bearing.
Welcome to the Inquisition!

~ SPECIAL MOMENTS ~
And with those heart-warming moments I leave you, and this series. Perhaps there will be further entries in the future, but to tell the truth I’m happy to give High Fantasy a break for a while. Having said that, if you happen to play multiplayer Inquisition on the PSN I’d love to hear about it. I’ll happily postpone the holiday for that!
