Wannabe Writer’s Note: This is the re-posting of the Dragon Age Origins babblethrough series I did on my old website. This article was originally posted on December 25, 2017. Enjoy past me’s unedited ramblings!
This is it! My 9th and final progress babbling post for the Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition. I can’t believe I actually stuck with something I said I was going to do… wow. Anyway, Grey Warden Ellen’s epic journey wrapped up with the Golems of Amgarrak DLC. However, I made a little side objective for myself before calling it a game – see the other 5 Grey Warden beginnings.
You know what? I think this is why the game has the word Origins in its title! There is a total of 6 different ways to start the game, depending on the race/background you choose. Each offers a completely different story, but they all tie together and branch out into the overall world beautifully.
!!!SPOILERS AHEAD!!!DO NOT read anything else unless you want this great game ruined… I’m serious.

Thank the Maker, I’m enjoying Day 2 of my awesome 4 Day vacation! It’s Labour Day here in Canada on Monday (same as our American neighbours, except we spell it differently because of our great British overlords) and I’m visiting family in the middle of nowhere until Sunday night. Unfortunately, that means I had to leave Dragon Age Origins behind for a bit… but I can still ramble about it online! Besides, I really need a break from trying to write about robots and soccer balls.
By the way, I love taking in game screenshots! I have almost 6 GB of images from various video games stored on my hard drive. Since I’m playing the PC version of Origins, I’ve been quite the shutterbug. Every time I see something cool, I just have to tap a key and then I have a digital image to treasure forever (or until some sort of catastrophic technology error happens). It’s always disappointing when I have to go back to consoles that don’t have that glorious feature.
Anywho, something I really enjoyed blogging about this year was my journey through Horizon Zero Dawn, in the form of a bunch of rambling progress posts, complete with some of the over 1,500 screenshots I took in that game. I’m loving every damn minute of Dragon Age Origins (it’s already surpassed HZD for my personal GoTY) so I think I’m going to do the same thing with this game. I wish I would have done this sooner, but oh well.
Progress thus far…
Where I’m At: Just entered the Dead Trenches (it lives up to its name) What I Just Did: Fought a bunch of creepy-freaking giant spiders to get to a journal. *shudders* What I’m Doing: Searching for a missing Paragon, in what appears to be darkspawn grand central, all to resolve a ‘minor’ dwarf political dispute. Grey Warden Ellen’s Level: 17 (4957/10000 until next level up) Playtime: 39 hours 15 minutes
