Deciding against my true nature, and choosing "market forces".

Well, remember, I am going to be playing a blood mage.  That doesn't necessitate evil acts, but it does make them rather more expected.  At the very least, blood magic involves a pact with a demon and a casual attitude towards ripping the Veil open.

I can only assume this is a problem on my end, but going to have to finish the video later/tomorrow. After the 8:00 mark, it keeps a) freezing completely b) commentary continues while picture freezes. Loading the video in very small chunks. Not sure why since haven't had a problem any other time, but I'll try again in a bit
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.

I'm sorry to hear that.  Youtube can be funny at the best of times, though.  I can only suggest using another browser or logging out of your account and refreshing the video....that normally does the trick.

I'm going with Alistair. The merchant's full of shit, and the way you've played Neria so far, I think that'd piss her off more than the price gouging. This protagonist seems to like brutal honesty, and half-assed justifications like the ones the merchant's spewing won't fly.
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

Also a fair conclusion.  Brutal honesty is definitely a good way to piss people off. 

We definitely wont need his money, between the Reaper's Cudgel and Potent Lyrium Potions (potions which, when sold, have a significant markup on the ingredients needed to make them), sovereigns are not an issue.  Once you have about 600, you're pretty much set, as there are only a couple of items in the 80-120 sovereign range which are necessary, and you can mostly craft or loot the rest of your supplies.

Also, Lothering is scheduled to meet a darkspawn horde at a future point, so we don't even get preferential treatment for the rest of the game.  A dwarf noble will, but that's because Gorim, after his exile, moves to Denerim and becomes a merchant, and the dwarf noble will always gets the best prices.  If you really want to make money, that is the origin to choose.

As is this.  I was voting mostly because of bastard, but in terms of in-game motivations, being on the side of the Sister is the "correct move".

Soooo every time I try to click ANY of your videos, it is giving me a "web-page cannot be displayed" "Most likely cause:
•Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed"

and

This appears in the address bar:

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<body><img src="http://www.google.com/pagead/sul?c=199035142&ag=10304309182&ad=39549866542&status=1&pl=1&time=1394043146511201&checksum=uTsn"/></body>

Sorry to sound like such an idiot, but I don't get it. Other youtube videos work, but not yours now - magically, out of nowhere.

Before I posted this, though I got it to work on another browser so, I'll just got with that.

Alright, done blathering, back to the video

Hmm, I'm not sure what that could be.  Have you tried clearing the cache for your browser (ctrl-F5 normally)?  That's all I got, I'm afraid.

Well, it's a new day and hadn't tried clicking the videos yet, but cleared the cache then did it and the video worked again, so maybe that was in.

Was able to finish watching through firefox yesterday, and as mentioned (and voted), in the spirit of the blood mage and the fact that I usually dance a fairly neutral line when playing normally, let's go the selfish route in this case.

Hah, yes.

Whenever Dark Souls II gets released, I intend to do a blind playthrough.  And I expect that to be my reaction, every 10 minutes, without fail.

I'm doing fairly well for DAO at the moment.  The real test will be the next few episodes.  I swear, the bandits outside Lothering are more difficult than demons, professional assassins, elite guards and darkspawn.  Give those bandits some good equipment and maybe put Ser Cauthrien in charge, and they could conquer half the damn country.

And as a bonus, we get to look at Morrigan some more.

You'll probably be interested to find out that Morrigan looks a lot like her voice actress, Claudia Black.

I believe the word I'm looking for is "yowza".
My favourite actress! She is several shades of awesome.
Translation: the one whose name i can actually remember.

And Morrigan is slated to have a role in the new DA:I game this fall...though most people believe she won't be able to join your party.



Unfortunately, I've been experimenting with Skyrim mods, looking for other paying writing gigs and doing background research this week, which means I have been lax on recording.  I'm going to do a marathon session tomorrow, but it may not get uploaded until Saturday at the earliest, and Wednesday at the latest (night shifts Friday and Sunday, followed by tutorials Monday and Tuesday mean my sleep patterns are going to be extremely out of whack for the upcoming week).

However, I'm hoping to get to, at the very least, the end of the Stone Prisoner DLC, which will allow us to recruit Ferelden's foremost hater of pigeons and give us another game choice.

What kind of mods do you use for Skyrim? I mainly stick with gameplay and immersion mods, like SkyRe and Lively Inns and Taverns. I find Skyrim's the kind of game that can be fun with copious modding, but as a vanilla game Bethesda kinda dropped the ball.
