Sylvia Feketekuty: For me, BioWare has always carried the old-school D&D heritage in its veins. I try to inject some of what I love about tabletop roleplaying into my work: bizarre encounters, proud villains, close adventurers, arcs with high stakes that retain a sense of play or of adventure. That’s everything I’ve loved about the best fantasy tabletop games I’ve played.

D&D influenced Dragon Age games before Dreadwolf

Dungeons & Dragons is a game that tells great adventure stories, or at least on paper. J&D the campaigns emulate The Lord of the Rings, but the stories don’t usually play out that way. A J&D The campaign is as much about comedy as it is about dramatic moments, which are the product of friends with similar interests hanging out and getting the chance to reference each other. These elements, together with the random nature of a dice game, mean that J&DThe most memorable moments of are often the funniest and most unexpected.

The dragon age the series has always had a lot of ties to J&Dbecause the people who worked on the original game also worked on the Baldur’s Gate and Nights without winter series. Dragon Age: Origins even featured a Boo of Baldur’s Gate like a J&D reference, with the popular space hamster also getting a shoutout in Mass Effect. It’s easy to imagine how Dragon Age: Dreadwolf will incorporate elements of Dungeons & Dragons games in its narrative, especially in a time when more people are familiar with the tropes of tabletop RPGs and are more likely to have experienced them firsthand.
