Episode #6: “More Things In Heaven And Thedas”

How much control did Elthina really have over the Templars? Just what connection does Aveline’s father have to the Black Vials? And just how long as You-Know-Who been there in The Silent Grove #2? Dragon Age is full of questions and plot threads whose answers require a little more effort on the audience’s part to tease out—which, of course, is just another reason we keep coming back for more.

This week we tug on some of the dangling plot threads that fascinate us to unravel some of the lingering mystery behind them.

NOTE: MAJOR SPOILERS IN THIS SHOW FOR THE SILENT GROVE #2

We get REALLY deep end of the pool here, y’all. So, uh, hope you like nerding out.

What is that gold thing Izzy wearing under her arm? Is it a dagger harness? A bit of decorative jewelry? It’s definitely not a bra or boob holster, since it goes ABOVE her breasts; and it isn’t an arm bracelet, since it wraps under her armpit; nor is it a tattoo because it’s raised and definitely golden in color.

It’s hard to tell from this image, but her weird arm-plate is on the side facing away from the reader, so it’s not part of her armor. And what’s more, it must taper to a point under her jerkin, since you can’t see it from the front or the back. I’m stumped. Any thoughts?

THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT

Oh my god.How fucking perfect is that name for an Antivan Crow prison?

Maybe Gaider’s not the best novelist (although he certainly isn’t the worst), but JFC his names people. HIS NAMES. I only hope that one day I come up with a name half as awesome as that.

Without spoilers, I will say that Gaider’s writing style really shines in the comic book medium, maybe even moreso than in the games. Like J. Michael Straczynski or early Neil Gaiman, Gaider’s style really works well in static visual media. I mean, his dialogue just crackles. And did I mention the names?
