[[WMG: Some version of The Maker is real, but he's more like The Copier.]] Having read fanfiction with real world characters falling into Thedas, this thought occurs. Thedas is populated by a large number of plant and animal species from our world, but nowhere close to all of them, and it has many species that are fictional. If both worlds exist, it is impossible for that much parallel evolution to occur. The only reasonable explanation in this case is that The Maker does exist, but he is only a spirit who copies lifeforms from other worlds, and is [[CreativeSterility unable to create new ones]]. He may be more powerful than any other spirit, but he is no different than them in kind.

[[WMG: The Maker was a lie.]] Andraste was Flemeth. Shartan was Fen'Harel. The Maker is supposed to have only contacted Andraste "in dreams" and "turned away from his children" after Andraste was burned at stake. He didn't "turn away" -- the whole idea was a lie to get the masses to follow both Mythal and Fen'Harel, a way to get the humans to cooperate with the oppressed elves. In Inquisition, certain characters don't seem phased by the idea of claiming the Maker backed you whether or not they actually believe it, in order to get more support -- why would Andraste claim any different? The Maker never "turned away" from his children, he was never real to begin with. Even if he did, if the Maker in Andraste's dreams was Fen'Harel all along -- the Maker as the Chantry knows it never existed.

[[WMG: The False Elven Gods were responsible for Andraste's death, not Tevinter.]] It has been theorized that Andraste was actually Mythal. Andraste was burned at the stake in Minrathous and reduced to ash. Mythal was murdered by the False Elven Gods and reduced to a wisp state, wherein she met Flemeth. So the fact that both Andraste and Mythal were murdered in such a way that their physical bodies ceased to be, seems too much like a coincidence. So if Andraste was in fact Mythal, this would make the False Gods responsible for Andraste's death, not the magisters of Tevinter. The real question is why? In the context of the faith that Andraste preached, she was a serious threat to the False Gods, for she knew they were simply immortal mages and not the deities they presented themselves to be. Does this then mean that the teachings of the Andrastian faith preach more against these False Gods than against mages themselves? The most often quoted verse from the Chant of Light in all three games is, ''"Magic exists to serve man, and never to rule over him".'' To Andrastians, this is directed at all mages. But the curious thing about this statement is the word "man". After all, humans are not the only race in the Dragon Age universe capable of using magic. What is known about the False Gods was that they were mages and that they enslaved their fellow elves and possibly other races. Perhaps what Andraste meant by this verse of the Chant of Light was ''not'' directed at Tevinter or even at mages in general -- but at the False Gods themselves for their deplorable behavior. So obviously in this context, they would see Andraste/Mythal as a legitimate threat and thus murdered her. But how did Tevinter play into this? Did they aid the False Gods in killing Andraste, or did they simply get the blame for her murder just because it occurred in their country? Since the fourth game is slated to take place in Tevinter, if this theory is true more details would be revealed.

[[WMG: The scaled ones became the kossith]] It's speculated both in-universe and out-of-universe that the qunari have some dragon blood flowing through their veins. Given how they hold a positive opinion of those qunari born without horns, it seems likely that the qunari priesthood is trying to breed the draconic traits out of the population, meaning that they could have been more draconic in the past. It's been said in Dragon Age: Origins that one of the traits of imbibing dragon blood over the generations is growing scales. Hence: Scaled Ones. While this admittedly isn't a strong connection, it would explain how the dwarves of the Hissing Wastes could have made a giant statue of what appears to be a qunari woman (though not why). [[WMG: The qunari are perfecting the large-scale suppression of magic]] It's been noted that the qunari are planning another grand invasion of Thedas, but they seem to be waiting for some unknown occurrence. Their policy of expansion seems to have been stopped by the time the exalted marches launched against them (though it took a few more exalted marches to force the qunari off the continent, I don't recall any mentions of the qunari expanding between marches). These exalted marches would likely have been the first time the qunari encountered non-tevinter Templars, who have the very unique ability of 'forcing realness' on their surroundings. Given how magic has not only been the primary challenge to qunari dominance, but it also scares the absolute hell out of them, the powers of the Templar would probably be of very great interest to them. That's why they've been holding back all this time, perfecting either their own order of Templars, or building devices that do something similar. Them finishing this would occur just in time for the next game (possibly due to inspecting Solas' fade-strengthening/weakening devices), just in time to (unwittingly) provide an obstacle to Solas' plans.

** A codex entry in the sequel mentions an apocryphal story about Andraste going to the top of Sundermount (a mountain important to the plot of the first act and a source of bad mojo from an ancient battle that occurred there) and returning in tears and clearly disturbed. Considering there's an [[spoiler: imprisoned demon]] atop Sundermount and that Flemeth [[is resurrected there]] it raises some interesting questions...

** And it looks like we're getting a Tevinter game for next time.

* The ending of ''Trespasser'' all but confirms that we're going north, but it looks like we'll be focusing on Tevinter. Fog Warriors aren't out of the question, but they're based in Seheron and likely don't care about beyond how they affect Seheron.

Since that cataclysm, the Profane have been growing in numbers. They never got strong enough to even threaten the ancient dwarven empire. Since it fell, they've been kept at bay by the darkspawn. But now, not only has a surfacer penetrated to their home territory, but the darkspawn numbers are depleted from the Blight. So now there's nothing to stop the Profane from rising up to make war on everyone.

[[WMG: Dragon Age 4 will take place in Northern Thedas, and the main protagonists will be the Fog Warriors.]] I might be in the minority, but I rather liked the relative de-escalation in Dragon Age II. It made Thedas feel more natural to me, since they don't go through a Blight or Breach every year. This guess is an attempt to re-capture that feeling while trying to avoid the game's mistakes. Northern Thedas will serve as the game's setting, since the rest of Thedas has been pretty throughly explored by this point. The Fog Warriors (you know, the guerilla fighters on Seheron that Fenris and Iron Bull met) would make great protagonists since they're badass rebels fighting against two repressive empires at once. Your main goal will be to kick them both out and declare Seheron's independence. You'll be able to travel outside of Seheron to other parts of Northern Thedas to perfom various undercover missions and meet with potential allies. Despite this, the main conflict will stay focused on the Fog Warriors' fight to free Seheron.
