Amirah shep for fcknariel !! slowly workin through art trades to open up for comissions :>
A series of labelled images of a pale red headed elf woman from Dragon Age: Origins wearing the different Dalish face tattoos (which tend to be swirly and vaguely Celtic looking)
A few weeks ago I sat down and worked out which tattoos correspond to which gods in the Elven Pantheon. There’s actually enough lore out there to do this with a reasonable amount of certainty.
- Andruil: Bow to represent Goddess of the Hunt
- Dirthamen: Book to represent where the Dalish keep their secrets/lore.
- Elgar’nan: Cracked earth and dark/light. Duality theme from legend.
- Falon’din: Same general shape of Falon’din’s statues. Less organic than the other tattoos; Falon’din is the God of the Dead.
- Ghilain’nain: Mother of the Halla. These are obviously halla horns.
- June: God of the Craft. Brought woodworking to the Dalish. In return the Dalish emblazoned the most basic tools of the trade across their FACE. Awesome.
- Mythal: Tree. Mythal returned life to the world after Elgarn’nan fought with the sun. Mythal’s flame is kept near the Tree of the People in the center of Alienages. Lingering scrap of Elven culture? Single trees are planted over dead bodies. Life from death.
- Sylaise: Hearthkeeper. Gave fire to the Dalish. Can clearly see a torch in the tattoo. Also vines/rope, other marks of Sylaise, and thread/cloth detail on the complex version.
Fen’Harel and the Forgotten Ones have no vallaslin. Shocking.
this is…majorly awesome. every time i think i can’t be delighted by dragon age lore, attention to detail, and fan intelligence and research, i am. every time. a fantastic resource and just, yeah, something i need to have on my dash immediately.
why do americans get so shocked that there is a schooling system different to theirs
Because we get so excited over the idea that education could actually be better and fun and not make us fall into debt
It was cold and it was valentine’s day. So I made a thing. :]
PIT BULL COMFORTS SICK DOGS AT THE VET - "Dominic lays with dogs as they come out of surgery, which calms them, making it much easier on the vet techs to handle the dogs as they wake up."
A Pit Bull named Dominic has earned the title of “Denkai Recovery Specialist” at the Denkai Veterinary Care Clinic in Colorado. Staff members noticed that Dominic would go to dogs who are recovering from surgery and cuddle with them. In addition to dogs, he also comforts cats also. Read more from the greeleytribune.com:
Haswell, though, remained a little skeptical. Dominic was cuddling with the new dog because he was cold, she thought.
She changed her mind later that day, when Dominic lay in the middle of a pile of dogs out of surgery and rested his head on their bodies when they cried.
The dog who cried the most got the most cuddle time from Dominic.
And she remembered the way Dominic rested his head on her neck when she had a headache.
Dominic would even cuddle with cats out of surgery, though they weren’t as receptive as the dogs.
What’s more, it made things easier on them. Dogs coming out of surgery could be wild, even aggressive, and bites were a little too common.
But when Dominic lay with them, they woke up calm, rested and happy.
Dominic now seems to understand his job. When a dog is under, Dominic waits at the foot of the door until clinic workers bring the dog out of surgery and set it on Dominic’s pillow, and he immediately goes over to rest with them.
Dominic cries and paces if another dog is crying in the clinic. He even acts irritated when Haswell rubs a dog’s body in an attempt to wake it up, as if Dominic’s saying, “Hey, I got this.”
“I’ve never, ever seen anything like this,” said Floss Blackburn, who has seen a lot as the founder of Denkai. “He’s got such a sweet heart.”

Reblog if you’re a hero.
My purple Hawkes (both male & female) will always hold a special place in my heart. I know the dialogue wheel is going to be changing for the next game. I just hope my Inquisitor will be able to funny and sarcastic in some instances
Don’t worry, you will be able to be funny - the tone just won’t dominate normally neutral sections, such as questions and simple discussion. :)
Was this done with the Bottomless Box glitch, perhaps?
If not, then awesome.
Side note: Take it easy with the scrubs, noobs, etc when it comes to gamers on their first PTs. It doesn’t make them look like idiots like the name-caller thinks - it makes the name-caller appear boorish. Y’all are better than that.
Me: COME ON BEAT IT BEAT IT BEAT IT GODDAMNIT. YOU WILL KNEEL BEFORE ME!
Me: …I had over five thousand souls.
Confession: I’m super duper sad that Inon Zur isn’t composing Inquisition. His music IS Dragon Age. He said he was rushed to finish DA2, and even with that in mind it still had a better soundtrack than most games. It surely won’t be the same without him.
Personally, while his music did fit DA…it was underwhelming. There isn’t a single score I remember from Dragon Age. I prefer the newest composer coming along. :)
Me: Traverse the white light or go face the knight? Hmmm. White light. *steps through*
Me: OH I KNOW WHAT THIS IS. I remember this!!!!
*Taurus Demon appears*
Me: YEP YEP CLIMB THE LADDER I KNOW WHAT TO DO *climbs* HAHA YOU CAN’T GET ME BITCH
Taurus Demon: *looks up* … *jumps up onto tower*
Me: HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLY SHIT DOWN DOWN DOWN THE LADDER
