In peace, vigilance. In death, sacrifice.]]'' -->'''--Motto of the Grey Wardens''' {{BioWare}}'s SpiritualSuccessor to the legendary ''BaldursGate'' franchise, ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is a DarkFantasy set in the world of Thedas (originally an acronym for 'The DA Setting'), a {{Deconstruction}} of the StandardFantasySetting, drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', and ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and filled to the brim with {{Fantasy Counterpart Culture}}s and BlackAndGreyMorality. The first game in the series, ''Dragon Age: Origins,'' was released in 2009, to a great deal of critical and commercial success. The world is at threat from an AlwaysChaoticEvil race of subterranean monsters called Darkspawn. Every so often, the Darkspawn form armies and surge to the surface en-masse, an event known as a "Blight". In response, an elite band of warriors called the Grey Wardens was formed specifically for the purpose of fighting Darkspawn and defeating the Blight. The story of ''Origins'' effectively consists of three parts. The first places you in the role of a newly conscripted Grey Warden as you take arms against the Fifth Blight, only to find yourself in a nasty LastOfHisKind situation and tasked with uniting the fractured political landscape of Ferelden against the Darkspawn threat. The second part unfolds in the ExpansionPack, ''Dragon Age: Awakening''. The plot concerns the efforts of a Grey Warden (which [[OldSaveBonus can be the same one from Origins]]) to rebuild the forces of the Grey Wardens in Ferelden while dealing with the aftermath of the Fifth Blight and delving deeper into the motivations and origins of the Darkspawn. The third part is told in the DLC "Witch Hunt", which takes place [[TimeSkip two or three years after the end of Origins]]. It chronicles the search for Morrigan, an enigmatic companion (and possible love interest) in ''Origins'' who disappeared after the conclusion of the Fifth Blight. Several other pieces of DLC were released in between the aforementioned parts, ranging from side stories to WhatIf scenarios. In addition to the game, the series contains two prequel novels, ''Literature/TheStolenThrone'' and ''Literature/TheCalling'', and a sequel novel, ''{{Literature/Asunder}}'', all of which were written by the game's lead writer, David Gaider. The series also contains a [[TabletopGames P&P RPG]] developed by GreenRonin Games, an upcoming comic book with OrsonScottCard set to be the writer, and a Flash game by EA 2D titled ''Dragon Age Journeys''. A direct-to-DVD anime, ''Anime/DawnOfTheSeeker'', was [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/101155-Dragon-Age-Anime-in-the-Works released in 2012]], provoking mixed reactions from the fans. Also released is a Webseries, ''DragonAgeRedemption'', produced by and starring FeliciaDay, [[PromotedFanboy who is a fan of the franchise.]] Its sequel, ''Videogame/DragonAgeII'', was released in 2011 on March 8th in North America and on the 11th in Europe. ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeIIIInquisition Dragon Age III: Inquisition]]'' is currently in production and is set for a late 2013 release.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: In issue 4, templars are capable of stopping enemy mages from casting magic. But apparently not in issue 1. ** Oh, [[http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Magebane they]] [[http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Righteous_Strike are]].. The absence of it in issue 1 was simply an oversight or the RuleOfDrama.

* PowerNullifier: The new templar power in issue 4. Actually, [[http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Cleanse_Area they use it in the game, too]].
