I know at heart Dragon Age was/is very Thedas politics centric, but with play by post role play we do have a little more time and room to explore personal relationships between characters.
That said, I'm new and while I await whether or not my character is approved I was just wondering if anyone could suggest some threads for leisurely reading.
My hope is to rp a very political albeit non-noble character (Ilona Sterling).
I admit I LOVED Alistair in the game (who didn't), but thought it would be interesting to play someone critical of his rule instead (I like to try new things). Are there any active or upcoming storylines to that effect?
My yet-approved character's late grandfather was a knight but her family did not inherit his title after his passing and they lost their home during the blight.
I'm hoping (fingers crossed) to play a bit of a political upstart and someone with not necessarily traitorous loyalties, so much as someone who is a bit more pliable with regards to supporting this or that cause.
So anyhow, that's all from me for now. Been reading lots on the state of things, etc. Just wondering if there's some more political intrigue plots on the go? Any rebellions? Clandestine dealings? Etc.
I'm off to browse some character art. Failing that, I maaaay just have to create a new DA:O avatar. I mean, darn.
As to your questions about plots, there is currently a plot in progress to find out who murdered or took part in the murder of Rae, Fergus' wife. There are also a great deal of Chantry/Grey Warden tensions that are bleeding onto the crown due to Alistair's association with the Grey Wardens.
We also just had an attack happen in the Alienage where a child was hurt when a Tevinter claimed to be acting on the behest of the Chantry to capture apostates.

Thanks Constance! This is essentially, exactly what I was looking for. Excellent, I have a lot of reading to do then but I look forward to it all. The more info the better.
I'm waiting on approval as well as for an artist to get back to me about using her artwork, so I'm not in a rush to get started - this gives me a ton of time to read and make myself way more familiar. Thank you so much!
Edit: I guess I should also inquire of any previous or active threads regarding the West Hills, since that's where Ilona's from. If anyone has any specific info, please keep me posted. Otherwise I'll scour through other threads as well and just keep an eye out.

JWhiteyGames: Hello! And thanks! I did. I was just looking to see if anyone was on in general. After reading the guidelines and peeking a bit more though, I realized the box isn't used the same as before.
