[[WMG: The Veil will come down at some point, most likely at the end of Dragon Age 4 or 5]]
Sandal's prophecy in Dragon Age 2 is:
-> "One day the magic will come back - all of it. Everyone will be just like they were. The shadows will part and the skies will open wide. When he rises, everyone will see."
Needless to say, this is about Solas's plan (which directly involves bringing down the veil and reuniting the material world and the fade ("The shadows will part and the skies will open"), restoring the ancient elves ("Everyone will be just like they were") and bringing magic back to the world. However... if the plan fails, the magic ''did not'' come back at all (let alone ''all'' of it), and no one is like how they used to be. It would also be a fall of Solas, rather than a rise. Not to mention they've been planting hints towards the ancient elves since Origins (Flemeth's grimoire, based on the description in-game, possesses the same symbol as Mythal's Vallaslin), making it very unlikely this Solas stuff is a decoy plot with the real MythArc of the series coming later. So... yeah, veil is probably coming down.

[[WMG: The Old Gods are the only true gods of the setting.]]

With the revelation that the Elven gods were simply powerful mages, and the Maker being absent from nearly every game, that leaves the Old Gods as the only deities that have appeared in mortal flesh. What if these Gods are the only creatures keeping reality of the dragon age world stable. They relay a song that resonates throughout the world. Through Titan flesh, through the Fade, and through the minds of Darkspawn. The Darkspawn cannot resist the sound of the music and feel compelled to dig up these gods. In The Calling, the Architect has a conversation with Bregan, in which he asks why the Darkspawn dig and the Architect tells him to meet perfection, and then mourns that they cannot do it without corrupting them. He meant perfection of the highest order of being, the Gods. And the Grey Wardens have been killing them off one by one...

How is this all relevant? It seems that a very literal Dragon Age has been ushered into the world of [=RPGs=]. Dragons are making a comeback as the [[{{Badass}} badasses]] they are, after going through some nasty [[BadassDecay decay]] for so long. And they're PISSED!

[[WMG: Dragon Age takes place in the same world as HisDarkMaterials.]]
Only several centuries later. The Magister Lords of the Tevinter Imperium are identical to the Magisterium from HisDarkMaterials.

The titular Dragon Age was so named for dragons were once again sighted in Thedas after having been thought extinct long before. It seems that after the game's release, there are a whole bunch of other fantasy [=RPGs=] coming out or just on the horizon, all of which involve, you guessed it, dragons suddenly reappearing in the world. And just like the Archdemon, when these guys appear, things get bad fast. In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft: Cataclysm'', Deathwing awakens and reshapes Azeroth. In GuildWars2, the Elder Dragons come alive and wreak havoc in Tyria. In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', dragons appear in Tamriel, and can only be stopped by a lone hero.

[[WMG: Dragon Age IV will replace Inquisition's dragon battles with battling the Evanuris.]]
Now that ''Trespasser'' has spilled the beans on what the elven gods and Fen'Harel actually are, it's heavily implied they'll be part of the next game. Just like each of Inquisition's maps had at least one High Dragon kicking around it, Dragon Age IV will have at least one member of the Evanuris, because somehow at the beginning of the game Solas manages to break the Veil just enough to let them out...so the player character can deal with them for him (referring to the "plans" he cryptically states he has for the eventuality that the Evanuris are freed from the Fade). Millennia of being trapped deep in the Fade combined with their staggering magical ability will have transformed the Evanuris into Cthulhu-esque [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] that will make them very difficult, but very rewarding to fight. And unlike the High Dragons, killing the Evanuris will be plot-important, and how many of them you kill will factor into the game's ending (the best ending will require killing them all). The Evanuris will be extremely powerful, more than the High Dragons were, so Solas (especially a Solas from an Inquisition save-state that attempts to save him rather than defeat him) will ensure the player character has some help in taking them down, since he also has a vested interest in seeing them all dead too, but can't deal with them himself because he has to focus on other plans, or because the Evanuris have simply become too powerful for him to handle on his own. June, Ghilan'nain and Sylaise might be the the three weaker of the Evanuris since their domains are domestically-oriented while Dirthamen and Falon'Din, being brothers, might be a DualBoss. Andruil, Goddess of the Hunt would be one of the more challenging fights, while the toughest would obviously be Elgar'nan, the elven All-Father and God of Vengeance. He might also buck the trend by not being an EldritchAbomination but a HumanoidAbomination; an inconcievably powerful entity that looks like an elderly elven man, though perhaps with some kind of "tell" that something is ''not right'' about him.

** BioWare announced '''World of Thedas''' corrections on their blog, which label the events of Literature/TheCalling as being in 9:10. [[http://blog.bioware.com/2013/06/05/world-of-thedas-volume-1-an-errata/ "Page 141: There are rumors in some circles of an intelligent darkspawn known as the Architect, who attempted to unearth and kill the remaining Old Gods and taint the entire surface world. Though the timeline says 9:14 Dragon, most reliable sources state these events actually occurred in 9:10 Dragon"]]. Plenty of other corrections in that post, too. But one thing we know for sure now is that Alistair was born the same year they fought the Architect. It's certainly possible that he was born while Maric was in the underground, or after he returned. But the former option seems heavily at odds with his entire plot line at the beginning of the book, of extreme self-deprivation. If he impregnated a maid as soon as he returned to Denerim, it might still work, though. Still, the list of reasons to doubt that Fiona is Alistair's mother has grown smaller with this change.

* This one has been confirmed by BioWare as not true since not only is there the possibility for Morrigan to not have a child in the first place, when ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' starts the child would not have been conceived yet and when it ends the child would only be around 9 years old.

* New information on Dragon Age 2 has confirmed this as not true. The main character will be Hawke, a villager from Lothering who fled with his/her family when the darkspawn came. According to BioWare a majority of the story differences become apparent in the middle of the game instead of the end.

* In Awakening, if you make The Messenger [[EnemyMine fight with you]], and then choose to free him afterwards, he gets a mention in the epilogue. Something about a helpful hooded traveler with a slight lisp, who aids those he finds. BioWare, ''please'' make him a party member. You can always bring in a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute or have him get better if the player imports a save where they killed him.

[[WMG: ''The13thWarrior'' takes place in the ''Dragon Age'' universe.]]
Fadlan is a Qunari. The other twelve warriors may be Chasind. And the cannibalistic Wendol are - of course - Darkspawn.
