I’ve always wondered at some of the stat boosts you get in RPGs from armors. Like increased hostility from enemy units. My theory is that they are either super jealous or super fashion sensitive.

Commissioned by Sasseffect to paint the Seeker of Truth, Cassandra Pentaghast, “wearing ceremonial-ass armour and looking heroic as fuck" with some "random symbolic shit”.
This was a tonne of fun to paint, and I hope you have fun looking! :)

King Alistair takes an unexpected leave of absence from the royal court, boarding a ship in the gray light of a Fereldan morning.

Oghren gets the news and departs Vigil’s Keep, raising a flagon of his finest ale in honor of the only human who appreciated it.

Zevran risks his tenuous position as Guildmaster of the Crows by leaving Antiva, telling himself that death happens to us all one way or another, but it’s no comfort.

Shale stands there, silent with eyes dimmed, the golem’s face betraying no emotion.

Leliana sings the Dalish song of mourning, her mind recalling the night she sang it in camp a decade earlier, and the soft smile Wynne had given her.

Old companions gather together beneath that ancient tree by the graveside of a dear friend, and each say goodbye to Wynne in their own way.

She has many names. Most know her as “Sister Nightingale” or “the Left Hand of the Divine.” To the rare friend, she is Leliana. They say she found faith amid darkness, and that her devotion to the Maker is matched only by her devotion to Divine Justinia V, a woman who is both mentor and savior. Those who have earned her loyalty know her as a steadfast ally. But enemies of the Divine know to fear her, for she is the shadow behind the Sunburst Throne—the one who watches and waits, who strikes when her mark is most vulnerable and least suspecting.

O-e… Celik you piss-ant - you’re not supposed to be able to make that stupid hat look attractive you jackass I am so mad I don’t even know

I think a large part of why mage hats look so stupid is because they don’t match the robes at all. They actually look less ridiculous when the wearer is naked…?

I think you may have a point there… The one exception to this would of course be this piece of garbage hat:

There’s just no saving this thing… ^

We don’t talk about that hat.

Also I like how this is the first image that comes up when you google “dragon age mage hat”. Good job, mygoodrabbit.

i needed a new desktop screen so i drew something extremely self-indulgent to use for it.

I'm not interested in stories. I came to hear the truth.
