The March 16, 2010 ExpansionPack to the successful 2009 RPG ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and thus part 1.5 of the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series. While continuing and expanding the ''Origins'' storyline, its plot is mostly independent of the original campaign. Although you can import your ''Origins'' PlayerCharacter to ''Awakening'', it stars [[OldHeroNewPals a mostly brand-new supporting cast]] and is set in a region of Ferelden that was never visited in the original campaign. If you don't [[OldSaveBonus import an old save]], you start with a brand-new main character, too--a seasoned Grey Warden from Orlais.

* DayOldLegend: PlayedWith here, where you can have an InfinityPlusOneSword crafted by the UltimateBlacksmith from ancient dragonbone, which immediately gets a Codex entry and even a line in the epilogue--but not because of its ''past'' history, but because of its ''future'' history. In other words, you create a weapon so ridiculously overpowered that the game gives it its own legend as an advance payment.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: The banter conversations between Anders, Justice and Nathaniel are ''insane'' foreshadowing for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Nathaniel keeps asking Justice if it's possible for him to transfer to a living host and if he could eventually be corrupted into a demon. Meanwhile, Justice tries to convince Anders that he should strike back against the Templars oppressing mages. [[spoiler: And so, of course, in ''Dragon Age II'', Anders allows Justice to possess him, Justice becomes corrupted into the demon Vengeance, and together they kill a heck of a lot of people in their crusade to set mages free.]]

* BlatantLies: [[spoiler:If you call out the Architect on abducting Wardens from Vigil's Keep, he claims he was only brought Wardens that were already dead. But even at the point when you passed through the Silverite Mine yourself, Keenan was still alive]].

** The Armor of the Sentinel is the most powerful massive armor set in the entire ''Origins'' saga and must be collected by completing a series of sidequests in both the Blackmarsh and [[spoiler:the Blackmarsh Undying]]; otherwise, several pieces will be LostForever. As a hint to how good it is, [[OlderIsBetter this armor was worn by the Grey Warden who slew the first Archdemon, Dumat]].

Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffscreen: Arl Howe's son Thomas, who never appeared onscreen to begin with. You only find out he was killed by darkspawn when his heretofore-unknown brother Nathaniel inquires about it.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverSuicide: Inverted. One sidequest ends in coming across a man who apparently hanged himself with his hands tied behind his back. Nobody finds this odd.

* BattleInTheRain: In the endgame, should you choose to [[spoiler: prioritize Amaranthine over Vigil's Keep]], the ensuing battle takes place in the rain.



* DualBoss: The Lost and an Inferno Golem, two Dragon Thralls, and a SkippableBoss fight against [[spoiler:the Architect and Utha]].

* BecauseImJonesy: There's a KnowledgeBroker calling himself "the Dark Wolf" who has information about a conspiracy against you. However, if you completed Slim Couldry's missions in ''Origins'', ''you're'' the Dark Wolf, and can call him out on it.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Anders makes his spectacular appearance spewing fire from his hands. He has no fire spells at the time, and won't unless the player chooses to develop them.[note]]However, if you start ''Awakening'' higher than level 18 or so, you'll have at least one spell point to spend for him, so you can give him a fire spell.[[/note]] Similarly, Velanna is later shown summoning sylvans and generally making the Wending Woods fight for her, but those abilities vanish once she joins the party.
