** The OP has completely missed the point. The fact that the sloth demon gave the Warden a generic Grey Warden fantasy instead of one that actually suited them is the entire reason you can break free and free everyone else to begin with. Morrigan and Sten are both aware they're stuck in an illusion but can't break free on their own. The sloth demon even mentions he'll do a better job next time when trying to convince you to back down. It's not laziness or a budget restriction, it's a plot point!

** Probably the latter, and I always took that no connection as Dwarves do dream as such (seeing things while they sleep) but it doesn't take place inside the Fade but only their own mind if that makes sense.

* So according to lore, dwarves have no connection whatsoever to the Fade, which is why they cannot use magic - by extension, this also means they cannot dream, since the Fade is also the dream realm. Yet, evidently, being tainted seems to negate this - a dwarven Grey Warden apparently has dreams, and Hespith describes herself and the other tainted dwarves from Branka's house experiencing "dreams". Or are these taint induced "dreams" not technically "dreams" at all (meaning, they don't actually involve one's spirit entering the Fade), but simply visions projected from their connection to the darkspawn HiveMind?

** For broodmothers, think the Xenomorphs of Alien fame, taking the "doners" most obvious or useful traits and taking them UpToEleven.

*** As proven by [[spoiler: Corypheus in Inquisition, it seems powerful darkspawn can bodysurf, and whats more powerful than a darkspawn Dragongod?]]

** The old gods of Tevinter were the only male high dragons known in recorded history. That's what made them special, and how they ended up getting worshiped.

** There's also the fact that they only recruit {{Bad Ass}}es. How can you tell if an orphan you pick up on the street will be a good Warden? Duncan was recruited off the street, but he was already in his late teens and pretty handy with knives.

** Given how incredibly BadAss she is, and that she doesn't have the PR baggage Loghain does, why can't you recruit Ser Cauthrien into the Wardens after the Landsmeet?
