Character Creation Rules

In general, a good recommendation would be to find a character motivation and story arc that has not previously been explored in Dragon Age: Origins or Dragon Age II.

The Fereldan Freeman background includes lesser nobility: Knights, Banns and their children. Arls, Teyrns and their children are beyond the scope of the game; even a later child than the heir has resources at their fingertips far beyond a Freeman or lesser noble.

Although the Crown has issued an edict ending the confinement of Mages to the Tower, the prejudice against mages in Fereldan society is not so easily ended. Apostate mages, while they will not be directly attacked or oppressed by Templars (officially; many Templars will dog a known Apostate because “he’s planning something”), will still become the objects of scorn and derision in the streets.

Dwarves are not particularly common above-ground. Many Casteless dwarves, however, have come to the surface to seek a new life away from the still-oppressive strictures of life in Orzammar.

Elves are beginning to move out of the Alienages. Yet it is still difficult for the long-oppressed Elven people to find lasting employment, and many end up staying in the Alienage because despite the difficulties of that life, it is still the same home that it has been for many generations: Not a comfortable home, nor even a safe one, but home nevertheless.
