* DoingInTheWizard: If you take Oghren with you on the "Urn of Sacred Ashes" quest, he'll mention the high amounts of lyrium in the mountain and temple, and that the urn's healing properties might be from centuries of exposure. This is one of many arguments in the game (Morrigan makes a few) that the Maker might not be real.

* CriticalStaffingShortage: The [[ImpartialPurposeDrivenFaction Grey Warden]] force in Ferelden is dangerously small for two reasons. In the BackStory, the Wardens were banished from the country by a Fereldan king after a rogue Warden-Commander raised a rebellion against him; they were only allowed back 30 years before game begins. Furthermore, in the first story mission of ''Origins'', most Fereldan Warden recruits are killed by the darkspawn horde when the paranoid general Loghain leaves them and the reigning king to die, thus leaving the country mostly unprepared to fight TheHorde.

Added DiffLines:

* CentralTheme: There are two in ''Origins''.
** The most obvious is blood. The logo is a blood splatter. Darkspawn blood is the key to being a Warden. A controversial form of magery is Blood Magic.
** The other is mortality. The game's theme is ''In Uthenera'', a song about life and mortality, from a race that lost its immortality. Many of the quests involve sacrifice and death, such as Zathrian's quest. In the end, players choose whether they will cheat death or embrace it.

Added DiffLines:

*CampfireCharacterExploration: In Origins, most of the NonPlayerCompanion interaction takes place in the party camp, near the campfire. The reclusive witch Morrigan is pretty much the only one who never comes near the main campfire.
