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.

[[WMG: Goldanna does have a younger brother that was fathered by Maric, it just wasn't Alistair.]]
* Her belief that Maric forced himself on her mother would be a wholly unnecessary detail for Eamon to add if he was just trying to fabricate an excuse for Alistair's existence, suggesting that Goldanna might have been onto something after all. Since an elven mage would be so much more scandalous than a random maid, the third Theirin brother's birth was used to cover up the truth about Alistair's, while still keeping another spare in case something happens to both Cailin and Alistair. Eventually, Alistair and/or Anora will seek out the third Theirin brother as a solution to the succession crisis they're going to be dealing with eventually.



In Inquisition, it is possible to find a journal implied to be Anders' recounting his Harrowing, and it depicts a much different ordeal than the one the Mage Warden had to go through: in this case, it was a much more straightforward battle of will between the apprentice and a cat-shaped demon trying to pray on his fear of the Templars in order to break his will and possess him.

* Further evidence for this is Dorian briefly discussing his Harrowing if he is taken along for the final segment of Here Lies The Abyss. The demon he faced was a Desire Demon, which perfectly matches the tombstone stating his greatest fear.

We have already seen Corypheus survive being rendered quite dead through an Archdemon-esque resurrection into a Gray Warden (or maybe one of his Disciples). Architect might have done the same thing, since it's confirmed he may have been another of the Darkspawn Magisters (by WordOfGod and evident from his similarly mutilated/fused face and big frilly shoulder things to Corypehus). Whether or not the Player opted to kill him or not will affect his amenability to working with others.
