And this is why he needs Hawke help in Act 3, he was busy sewing his new coat!
AND HE ONLY CHANGES COAT IF YOU DO THE QUEST.
This is so canon.
I mentioned a few times before how much looking at stills rather than videos can change how you view a game. In this instance, allow me to reveal the following update made me hate Childer EVEN MORE THAN I ALREADY DID. Consider it fair warning.
Sigrun, joining the Grey Wardens is perfect if you want to be unmourned and forgotten. And the taint will kill you slowly, until you go crazy and die fighting Darkspawn. (Unless you're a female Warden. In that case, I wouldn't risk that.)
What more do you want?
Apparently, toy chariots and soap on a rope.
But yeah, Sigrun is sweet and bubbly... all the same her priorities seem quite the bit... off... most of the time.
Sigrun keeps talking about how the Legion is all dead. Do you think she means her company (or whatever unit), or...the entire Legion?
I always took it to mean her company of the Legion, not the entire Legion.
finished DAO aaaaaaa wondrous things~~~
so maybe I missed stuff but thaaaat's for the next playthough 8'D
starting DA2 because yes
DA2 is no in my book. :(
Agreed. Play the DA:O DLCs. DA2 is so...disappointing after DA:O imho.
I shall refrain from commenting on that because when I start an LP announcing DA2 is my favourite game, I meant it.
Same here. There are so many flaws, but...DA2.
Which is why I'm glad I got to see you play it!
And I was glad to do it! It's not a game for everyone, and I don't belittle what DAO can and does very well; indeed, of modern era RPGs it's probably my second favourite. I'm just such a sucker for the kind of narrative DA2 puts out, which is probably why I like TSL better than KotOR as well.
Some banter unlocked.
Justice: Am I correct in hearing that you are dead, dwarf?
Sigrun: In a manner of speaking, yes.
Justice: The body I inhabit is dead, as well.
Sigrun: I... don't think that's quite the same thing, my friend.
Justice is adorably awful at bonding.
Oghren: So... what are you doing tonight?
Sigrun: Sleeping. Alone. With a knife under my pillow.
Oghren: *Snicker* Hot.
Sigrun: Honestly, Oghren. What's the point? I'm in the Legion of the Dead. Nothing between us will last.
Oghren: Exactly! All the fun, none of the commitment!
He's better at it than Oghren, though.
I ended up screwing up a conversation point, so I accumulated enough banter it gets its own post.
Anders: So you never told me what that ceremony was like.
Sigrun: *Sigh* It begins with chanting and toasts. Then we bid our families farewell. Then, wailing and tears.
Anders: That does sound like a funeral. How depressing...
Sigrun: We're not the Legion of Jaunty Pub Songs.
Anders: But think how much easier recruitment would be if you were!
Justice: How is it different?
Sigrun: Excuse me? How is what different?
Justice: How is your death different from mine?
Sigrun: My death was symbolic. I entered the Legion and thus my old life ended. But I imagine death will catch up with me soon enough, don't you worry!
Justice: I do not worry. I was simply curious.
Again, Justice's gormless confusion is the best.
Justice: So you believe you will die soon.
Sigrun: Won't we all?
Justice: I will not die. Not as you die.
Sigrun: Spirits such as yourself can be slain in this world. Maybe you can, too.
Justice: That... is a disturbing thought.
Sigrun: Glad to be of service!
Nathaniel: I've watched you fight, Sigrun. The Legion of the Dead trains its people well.
Sigrun: Oh, they taught me a few tricks, but I was fighting long before then.
Nathaniel: Oh? You fought in Orzammar's army?
Sigrun: Fighting for scraps of food. For a place to sleep. For survival.
Nathaniel: Oh, I... I didn't mean...
Sigrun: It's all right. You're a noble!
Nathaniel: Sigrun, I understand how difficult surviving poverty can be. When I came back from the Free Marches, I had nothing. No money, no family--nothing.
Sigrun: I'm sorry. I didn't know that...
Nathaniel: You have my respect for surviving what you did.
Sigrun: I didn't survive. Legion of the Dead, remember?
Sigrun: Cheer up; no one loves a grump!
Nathaniel: For a dead woman you're remarkably perky.
Sigrun: I could be less perky if you like! 'The darkness of the Deep Roads is seeped into my soul. The world is dead, my heart is black. Alas. Woe. Wooooeeee!'
Nathaniel: Let's... stick to perky.
Oghren: You remind me of Branka, sometimes.
Sigrun: I remind you of your ex-wife, who fed her entire house to darkspawn in search for a magical anvil?
Oghren: Yes-- well, no... not when you put it that way...
Sigrun: Smooth, Oghren. Real smooth...
Sigrun: For all your faults, Oghren, you are a remarkable fighter.
Oghren: Really? *Laugh* Let's go 'round the corner so I can show you something else remarkable...
Sigrun: It was just a friendly compliment.
Oghren: You're friendly. I'm brazen and lustful. We're even!
Sigrun: Ugh. Oghren, I could light your breath on fire...
Oghren: That's not the only thing you could light on fire, saucy lady...
Sigrun: *Sigh* Do you ever stop drinking?
Oghren: Oh, don't you worry about that. It enhances the Oghren experience. I'm like a cherry soaked in brandy. Plump... juicy... and full of intoxicating flavor.
Sigrun is so freaking adorable/ I love her to pieces and I just want to hug her.
And for those who haven't played the game I really can't express how hilarious her banter with Nathaniel about her being perky is. Both voice actors' delivery is golden.
The first time I played Awakening I couldn't trigger her Joining (because she was the last I recruited) and her personal quest because of the bug.
The epilogue broke my heart, I love her so much.
The recruitment system is so bogus. I went to get Justice first the first time and now I know how that works I usually 'have' to save him to last. Another reason they could have bloody well put someone other than the main quest advancer in charge of the Joinings when it doesn't even make sense in lore.
I think there was a mod for it, I should check again. How does it change recruiting Justice first?
He has no Joining since Kristoff is already a Warden (also, dead.). If you get Sigrun and the other one as the third you can't Join them because of derpy programming rushing you onwards after the third quest. Only if you get Justice third do you not 'lose' a Joining because he never had one in the first place.
I forgot. I'm so smart.
The good news are - DANexus HAS A FIX FOR IT. And I wouldn't have thought to look that up if not for you.
I'm a living memo!
DANexus has a fix for a lot of stuff except Zevran's romance in DA2 they had one even for Morrigan's ring and Jowan's quest.
I spent so much time on that site, it's not even funny. On the bright side, all of my Warden have random eyes even with Pineapple's mod.
*is innocently downloading eye textures now she was there anyway*
Uh... I have a 200 MB mod folder for DAO XD For DA2 it's 775 MB. NO I NEVER GO TO THE NEXUS, NOPE.
Eyes texture won't work, for some reason, neither on the CC nor in game - for my Warden I mean, everyone else is fine. I'm not sure about what I'm screwing up.
WE CLEARLY HATE NEXUS. The things I do for nice dresses/cosmetics/hairs. And how do you have more mods for DA2 than DA:O?
The High-Res packs. They take up a LOT of space, but since my computer at the time couldn't DirectX-whatever-rank because it was a Vista I couldn't run the game at highest graphical settings.
They take more than Improved Atmosphere and Redesigned? Woah.
Now you made me curious. Let's see.
That does point towards the DA2 files being comparatively larger. In comparison, I think DAO has more NPC overrides because of Redesigned and much of the rest is hotfixes for game issues while a lot of the DA2 stuff is textures. Something like Tabooike's Blightlands is 5 MB on its own.
Back on track:
Nathaniel: How do you stand living under all that rock?
Sigrun: I don't understand. We just do.
Nathaniel: Orzammar is under a mountain. Just thinking about the crushing weight of a mountain overhead makes me shudder.
Sigrun: Surfacers live in buildings. If a building falls on you, it will make you just as dead.
Nathaniel: Thanks for the reminder.
Sigrun: Sometimes, you twitch uncontrollably.
Justice: Do I? It must be an interaction between me and Kristoff's decaying body.
Sigrun: It's like you're dancing. Ooh, we should set you to music!
Justice: Has it occurred to you that I may be... self-conscious about this twitching?
Sigrun: Oh, sorry! Are you?
SO THAT'S WHY I DIDN'T LIKE VELANNA AT THE BEGINNING.
