Added DiffLines:

* EthnicGod: The elves worship a pantheon of deities known as the Creators ([[spoiler:revealed to have been ancient elven god-kings in the third game]]), while the dwarves venerate their ancestors and a mysterious female being named "the Stone", which represents the entirety of the earth ([[spoiler:who may be a massive slumbering Titan]]). Humans and the qunari/kossith lack such a deity, since the most common human faith is that in TheMaker, which proclaims universality, and the qunari follow the quasi-religious philosophy of the Qun, which is likewise not specific to their race. In ancient times, however, the human tribe of Tevinters worshiped a pantheon of seven Old Gods (giant magical dragons).

Added DiffLines:

* TheBard: The series uses bard as code for infiltrator/spy/assassin well versed in playing The Great Game, or DeadlyDecadentCourt. You will encounter numerous participants to the point where a character may have to specify they are a mere singer or minstrel.

* BadassGay: Another surprisingly common character type. Homosexuality is practically a non-issue in Thedas, since there appears to be no religious or "moral" stigma against it. The only real problems you'll face for being gay are if you're part of a prominent noble family, but that's because of the pressures of marrying and continuing the family bloodline. Badass openly gay or bisexual characters include [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Leliana and Zevran,]] [[EveryoneIsBi all of the romance options]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', and [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Dorian, Sera, and Iron Bull]]. A PlayerCharacter romancing a same-gender LoveInterest in all three games also counts. There's a lot of random NPC characters who also fit.

Added DiffLines:

* DominantSpeciesGenes: Human-elf children are, for all intents and purposes, biologically human--which is a blessing for many of them, since half-elves are discriminated against by both humans (who generally [[ScrewYouElves view elves as a lowly species]]) and elves (who are heading towards extinction and thus shun any crossbreeding with humans, as it never results in elves being born). WordOfGod is that there is a very specific reason for this and it has more to do with elves themselves than with humans (so this trope is inverted: it's the elven genes that are universally recessive).

* TitleDrop: "Dragon Age" refers to the current century. The Chantry declares the name of the next century (or "age") based on omens, and a sighting of High Dragons near the end of the previous age after having believed they were extinct for several centuries was considered the omen for this one. Hence, the TitleDrop.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilTaintedThePlace: [[TheCorruption The Blight]] corrupts everything it touches. Even after the Archdemon is dead the lands the Darkspawn ravaged never fully recover as a result of the corrupting effects.

** Orlesian society is even worse. This seems to be the only purpose ''to'' their nobility in the first place. They call it "The Game."

** Orlesian society is even worse. This seems to be the only purpose ''to'' their nobility in the first place. They call it "The Game."" How deadly is it? According to Vivienne in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', she has no idea if [[FormalFullArrayOfCutlery using the wrong fork at supper]] is worse than death or just social suicide...because anyone who has so mis-stepped is immediately stabbed to death with the proper fork.
