Slightly off topic, but I'm curious about what other games everyone loves, since I suspect there's a lot of overlap... (and because if we have one loved game in common this could be a good way to introduce each other to new games we might enjoy just as much.)

Inspired in part by [personal profile] twist_shimmy, since I was up until FIVE AM the other night mainlining her fantastic Oblivion fic.

In the meantime, have a present that says what we're all thinking:

It seems that the girls (and Caer?) managed to collapse the universe the Fade Bar just by playing cards. WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THERE PEOPLE I DEMAND EXPLANATIONZ

I got lost in all the characters running around on Formspring and decided to try putting together a handy reference list. And then I thought that maybe someone else could have a use of it too... So here it is.

It's incomplete and quite possibly wrong, so please help me to correct and expand it (Especially with links to fic, where it exists. I have a feeling my search-fu failed me several times here)

The Fade Bar Directory )

It was ridiculously difficult to decide on a method of classification, argh. Also, I've no idea what tags would be appropriate. Mods, please advise? Thank you, Shimmy, for the shiny new tag :D

And to everyone interested in watching without participation, advice from [personal profile] aithne: the easiest way to do so is to make a Formspring account and then follow all of these. That way, you get at least most of it.

It's time for another WTF screenshots post! This time with videos! :D

Before we get started, here's a short video of Jessa and Jethann scarring Bethany for life. (The music is what I was listening to when I hit record rather than something I chose to, uh. Set the mood.) Oh, and for the record, never listen to the ambiance in the Blooming Rose via headphones. I don't want to know how much that man had to pay to get the service that made him make those noises. ._.

...You're thinking about loading your game and listening, aren't you. Goddamnit. It's not going to be my faaaaault.

Okay. Next up we have various screenshots. A while back [personal profile] nagia asked me to track down my glitched Oghren screenshots, and I finally did. Basically Faolan walked into Blackmarsh, looked up, and found Oghren 1) stuck on top of a rock, and 2) impaled by a treebranch. Observe! (All of these can be clicked through for large.)



And for the final DAO screenshot, we have... *sighs* It just makes me die of laughter. Look at the subtitle, and then their faces, and then the dog. This is the only time Adhara has ever looked even REMOTELY PLEASANT.

DA2 screenshots, no spoilers +4 )

Varric Act 2 Personal Quest Spoiler +1 )

Final Battle Spoilers (+2) )

I also have some videos to post, but for the sake of sanity will relegate them to a different post. This is getting long.

Please don't stab me for this spammy post...

So, I'm writing this fic, and I needed a dish, and Fish and Egg Pie comes to mind.  Why? I have no idea, other than I thought it was a popular and traditional dish of the Middle Ages that I had heard about on AM radio? or Emeril?  Did someone mention this/write this/eat this somewhere on PoT? I don't want to steal any good recipes, ya know.

Anyway, if you know why I thought of fish and eggs living together in a pie, please fill me in. Maybe it has something to do with all the talk of Cheese Dalish. I'm just too lazy to read through all those comments. And I never eat fish.

Thanks for all the responses!  [personal profile] klarabella is way more observant that I ever hope to be.  She pointed out that Fish and Egg pie was mentioned in a Codex for Starkhaven!

We supped at the table of my guide's closest friend. I was presented with a variety of dishes from the region. One in particular stood out: fish and egg pie, Starkhaven's most famous dish. Three deboned fish, caught just that day, were cooked in a porcelain vessel with boiled eggs, dried fruit, spices, and thickened cream, all topped with a light crust. Superb!

Dragonmod here!

I'm not dead! Expect a bit of maintenance happening behind the scenes, as well as a post I've been meaning to get live for a while coming soon.


For the record, we're no longer considering DLC spoilerrific, especially now that we're in the dry spell between DLCs and the new DA game.

Thanks darlings!
