Confession: The first time I decided to go the route of rivaling Anders and getting him to fight with the templars, his speech at the end with its suicidal implications and him realizing how terrible Justice had become had me actually tearing up and left me with a bad feeling for the rest of the day.

Confession: I stopped my male!Hawke run in the middle of Act 2 only because I couldn’t decide whether to have him romance Anders or Merrill. They’re both such great characters, I can’t choose!

Confession: I played Awakening, really liked Anders and heard that in DA:II I’d be able to romance him. I was super excited. So I booted up the game and suddenly a blonde guy with stubble, a short pony tail and an earring pops up on my screen…only, he looked kinda squashed. Ended up loving Varric, but you have to admit he looks like squished Awakening!Anders.

Confession: I think Justice gets given way to much credit for the destruction of the Chantry in DA2. If you Rival Anders then sure but if you Friendship Anders then Justice is barely a character. Also the max friendship passive says “Hawke’s support helps Anders maintain his focus” and the Vengeance passive says “Anders gains a measure of control over the spirit within”. Under the friendship path Hawke will ask Anders “Did that spirit tell you to do this?” and Anders will flat out say “No”.

Confession: I love how Dragon Age is teaching me to roleplay like I wasn’t able to before. Like, the fact that my Hawke agrees with Anders and actually approves of what he did, with Hawke being sick of the Circle and the Chantry, and all they’ve done to their loved ones. That doesn’t mean my Inquisitor has to approve. Not the slightest.

Confession: I find killing Anders to be pointless if you save the mages. You’re suppose to be freeing his kind yet you condemn him. Even with all of Sebastian’s threats it just seems stupid.

"Is it just me or does that guy’s character in your character creation confession look just like Anders? Did you get a submission straight from Anders himself?"

Ha, I actually designed him to look like Anders for another confession!  

But, yes, ahem, Anders made the confession :)

Confession: One thing that bothered me about the transition between Awakenings Anders and Dragon Age 2 Anders is that little bit of continuity errors. My ending for Awakening was the one where Anders stayed with the Wardens, finding a place to call home in them. However in DA2, Anders is all “No, no more Wardens, not family rawr.”

Confession: Whenever Anders mentions oppression I can’t help but think of the peasants in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Confession: The first time I saw Alistar he instantly reminded me of Anders, and then saw they they were absolutely nothing alike.
