I've noticed some patterns in the history of the DA universe. First is the one between Andraste and Flemeth, as well as [[spoiler: Sharlatan and Solas]]. Both are known to only have daughters, they both share similiar designs, just look at the Andrastian and [[spoiler: Mythal]] iconography. Then we have [[spoiler: the freedom loving elf who partakes in the revolution against the ruling class and has a close bond to a powerful woman in the movement. Am I talking about Solas or Shartan?]]
* We also have the connection between the Old Gods and [[spoiler: the Titans]]. Both can be heard singing. One of the Old Gods in the Western Approach are said to sleep within a Thaig. Both have a presence in both the physical world and the Fade, since [[spoiler: Lyrium is found both in the Fade and the physical world and is the blood of the Titans]].

Much is made of the threat the Qunari pose to Thedas and (when they're the ones talking) the inevitability of their victory. But I contend that they are far less impressive than they are made out to be. First, every Qunari agent we've met has second thoughts or doubts and at least one (possibly two depending on what Tallis did next) can decide to leave. The Bull notes that the Qunari's leaders have not been able to satisfactorily explain why they lost the last war despite the fact that, according to their beliefs, following the Qun should have guaranteed victory. The evidence supports the idea that, despite gathering converts in some places, they are losing a lot of people to Tal-Vashoth; Tal-Vashoth are a constant problem on Seheron, they had to come up with a name for the descendants of those who left the Qun, proving that it doesn't always lead to madness and in Dragon Age 2 even the personal troops of the Arishock went Tal-Vashoth by the dozen. If Sten is the new Arishok the comics show him to still care too much about his friends to put the Qun over them. All this suggests a sense of doubt creeping into the heart of their supposedly unified society. This is also supported by the simple fact that it's been two centuries since the Llomeryn Accords and they haven't made a single advance in territory nor really made any effort to do so.

There were 9 elven gods and 7 old gods. Two of the elven gods have been confirmed to still be around.

* Dumat, the Dragon of Silence and the archdemon of the First Blight=Dirthamon, the god of Secrets, who gave the elves the gift of knowledge. May match up with Dumat giving away knowledge of blood magic. Zazikel, the Dragon of Chaos and the archdemon of the Second Blight=Anduil, who's codax in Mythal's temple says she went mad, known as "blood and force." Toth, the Dragon of Fire and the archdemon of the Third Blight=Elgar'nan, god of the sun (fire?) and vengeance. Sylaise, the harthkeeper<-fire. She gave the elves fire and taught them to heal. Andoral, the Dragon of Slaves and the archdemon of the Fourth Blight=June, the god of crafts. Slaves would be in charge of doing such work one would think. Urthemiel, the Dragon of Beauty and the archdemon of the Fifth Blight=Sylaise, god of domestic arts. Sister to Andruil. Razikale, the Dragon of Mystery=Dirthamen, the keeper of secrets. Lusacan, the Dragon of Night= Falon'Din, the god of the Beyond and twin to Dirthamen. Mythal, who is Flemeth and Solas, who is Fen'Harel. Ghilan'nain is harder to place as the mother of monsters and halla, and goddess of navigation. Night, on a stretch. Chaos, as something that monsters cause. Slaves, as she may have once been one before being raised to goddess-hood.

''Amongst'' their weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Divine. And nice uniforms of yet-TBA color and design.

* Another possibility is that both propositions are true: Alistair is the son of Maric and a maid from Redcliffe Castle, and Fiona did have a child with Maric,.. who's not Alistair, thus introducing another Theirin heir and therefore more political/family drama, because the Dragon Age serie is [[BlatantLies clearly lacking in these departments]]

* Morrigan. She is after all, a major character in this game after not being seen in [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII 2]]. And someone has been making sure that elements of Thedas that could potentially resolve the HellGate crisis are all destablized, such as the Grey Wardens, Circle of Magi, The Chantry and Orlais itself. Judging from the way she's dressed in Orlesian attire in "The Fires Above" trailer, it's very likely that Morrigan has insinuated herself into Empress Celene's court. She could be behind it all.

* The king of Nevarra, Markus Pentagast, is extremely old and has no children of his own, neither does his heir-apparent, his younger brother, Firdinand. More distantly related Pentagasts are lining up to replace him while various other Nevarran clans are circling, smelling blood in the water. As it happens, you're going to have a Pentagast- Cassandra- in your party. Even if it doesn't lead to an Alistair situation, you can bet her familial connection will come up.

[[WMG: Cole says Sera shouldn't paint because it would damage her emotionally in the long run.]]
She's a talented sketch artist and loves to doodle, but she only ever seems to draw things from life. She likes things simple and concrete, and anything that strays from her idea of reasonable immediately makes her uncomfortable. Still, she has "elfy" reactions and perceptions that make her head hurt if she thinks about them for too long. Cole warns her against painting because, to someone who can't plan or compose and can't handle abstraction, the first steps of painting would just be smearing random colors across a blank, empty canvas, becoming only an aimless blob of nothing unless she can ''make'' it into the shape she wants. Knowing how she feels about elves, and how Solas describes life for elves in Arlathan, and how afraid she is of the Fade, ''and'' how something she loves can be easily ruined for her (like cookies, or her various pet names for the Inquisitor), if she tried painting, it might ruin ''all artwork'' for her, which would leave her without a very valuable outlet for her emotions. Being deprived of it would eventually mean a breakdown for Sera and living hell for everybody else.. which is how Cole was able to "hear" the danger of her painting in the first place.

Now that Varric is the lawful ruler of a Freemarch city-state, his prestige level likely has shot up even more amongst the society of surface dwarves. Bianca's parents are now kicking themselves that they aren't in the Viscount of Kirkwall's good graces.

[[WMG: Human souls and spirits are the same type of beings, and it'll play into the next game heavily.]]

After finding out that [[spoiler: Solas intends to kill everyone in order to tear down the Veil]], and with Cole being a spirit that manifested a human body, and the spirit of [[spoiler: Divine Justinia]] who may or may not have been the real thing, there's a lot to suggest that the souls of sentient life on Thedas and the spirits of the Fade aren't actually very different from each other as a spirital "species", as it were. Mages draw from the Fade to produce magic, and it ''is'' possible to be present in the Fade physically, implying that mortals actually do have the ability (or the right, possibly) to exist on both planes, with each type being disoriented and disturbed by crossing into the other's world.
