Unnecessary Bloodletting by RoochArffer Unnecessary Bloodletting by RoochArffer
alcedinidae has a theory that all the people in the Dragon Age universe are composed only of skeletons and blood and held together solely by magic 

I've been replaying Dragon Age: Origins (as a mage again because I couldn't resist the cone of cold/stone fist combo) because of all the hype surrounding Inquisition right now, and I have a couple more Dragon Age comics coming at ya (assuming I can put down the controller for long enough to draw them)

also gee do i hate jowan ugh

other dragon age stuff:

Isn't there a "realistic blood" mod?

Even the shot where Jowan is holding his phylactery and drops it looks ridiculous for how it's a large bottle that looks like it holds at least a litre in it. These things were supposed to have been taken when they first arrived! Some new apprentices were probably young children then! The Warden alone is described as being young when they came to the tower, and children of mages who failed to keep up their contraception? They're potentially mages right from birth! (Though I suppose they only take blood from such a mage child if they do show magic.)

Now there's a picture on the Dragon Age wiki of a little device that looks a bit like a Time Turner that is the phylactery Templars use to track ex-Circle apostates. I repeat, tiny, like it contains only 50 mils of blood in it. Far more realistic.

blood mages also have ridiculous viles of blood lying around, but i sort of expect that from them at least....

yeah, i saw that when i was googling around for references, and was like, what? no, that's not what was in the basement... not at alllll

A random thought I had about that is maybe those bitty time-turner-looking things are filled from those ridiculously huge bottles in storage, each time one of them is issued to a templar hunting n ex-Circle apostate.

The huge bottles are still ridiculous though, so much so it deserves repeating.

that's true, they might need reserves if someone's particularly hard to find or something

you got that right... i saw Jowan push the templars with at least 3-5 lts of blood, and humans are supposed to only have two, how was he still standing?, the magic of the videogames of course.
