I'm not going to get into any fancy plot description or details here, largely because there aren't any yet. I want to run a Dragon Age RPG. With help from Seiji and Poet, I was able to acquire all the available handbooks and materials on PDF files. This is my first time using the Dragon Age format, however (I've started a couple of D&D games before but never actually finished any) as well as my first time GMing any game of any sort. As such, we're starting with a test run. This will be very basic. Set at least a year before the Fifth Blight (aka the events of Dragon Age Origins), the village of Lothering and many traders attempting to travel to and from it were suffering raids from a particularly violent band of Chasind Wilders. While it possessed a Chantry and a small presence of Templars, none of these were equipped to try and pursue the barbarians into the Korcari Wilds where they make their base. So, to deal with the problem, the Revered Mother offered up what money the Chantry could afford to spare as a bounty, to entice any adventurers who might be interested to slay the barbarians and allow Lothering to continue in peace. The characters you make for this don't have to be the characters you want to use for the rest of forever, just make a character who fits this premise (and I'm including a list of suggested character backgrounds to help) and if you want to you can throw them out and make a new character if the test run goes well. Please keep in mind, our mage character is going to be an apostate, so don't make a character who's likely to turn them in.
