Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the web. We are a small group of people initially brought together by our love of the Dragon Age video game franchise. This place was originally built in result of the original BSN’s forum closure. You will find our site may not be the biggest DA fan site out there but what we lack in quantity we make up in quality. Also, as you can see, we also have a lot of space for non-DA material as we are evolving into a more social site as well.
We have a close knit group of members here that are all thoughtful, respectful and mostly, a whole lot of fun.
If you join us you will notice we welcome new members with open arms and only ask that you treat everyone here as you yourself would like to be treated.
As we are a “mature” site all members must be over 18 years old. That being said, please note we have dedicated boards/threads dedicated to mature topics and material. We also would ask that even then, your posts should be as tasteful as possible and no hardcore pornography is allowed. If you have any questions please PM me before hand I will let you know!
Is Blood Magic really bad or is it just scary? Despite what some Shem would like me to say, I have never made it a secret that I am a Blood Mage and I make no apologies. I have seen people run from me at the mere idea of the notion but for those that know me I doubt you will find many who consider me scary.
Many say that Blood Magic is unnatural but if it is unnatural than why does it exist? Is it just not another form of Magic? It seems to me that most people feel Blood Magic is bad because it requires blood or rather the force of life within the blood. So therefore it must be bad? These same people who claim its evil due to the use of blood/life do so as they chew down on a big piece or bloody steak. Or in the next breath they justify the spilling of blood in some silly squabble over a piece of land or being slighted at the latest fete in Orlais. Does this not seem strange and unfair to anyone except me?
No, the real reason people are afraid of Blood Magic is the power it gives to the user. Human governments and the Chantry prohibit the use of Blood Magic not because it is inherently evil but because it’s something they cannot control. Like everything the Shems are afraid of it comes back to this issue. Can’t control the Elves, subjugate or kill them. Can’t control Mages, subjugate or kill them. The list goes on.
If the Chantry had spent the last 1000 years studying and perfecting the use of Blood Magic perhaps their epic failure at Kirkwall or the embarrassing bifurcation of the Templars from the Chantry could have been avoided. But no, they decided hide behind the skirts of their priests and demonise anything they couldn’t control and we all see how well that worked out.
Oh what a load of complete bloody shite! Blood magic is just misunderstood? Try telling that to all the dead people in Kirkwall! Try telling that to all the Templars that died in the Tower in Lake Calenhad!
Some emo, spooky, faffy Elf bird comes along and bats her eye lashes around for a few minutes and you all go knackered sideways! Blood magic is evil! Must I remind everyone what happened to spooky girl’s Keeper? Must I remind everyone what her and her mate Anders did to Kirkwall? Demons! Phhhtt… Blood magic kills PEOPLE! Get that yea? It KILLS people!
Look yea, I understand that Mages feel all “oppressed” and all but the truth is most people are already scared to death of them to start off with. Throw the daft Blood Mages into the mix and you will have panic. Magic is scary enough without worrying about it being used to boil our blood. Think about how it looks on our end. The only good Blood Mage is one full or arrows, yea? Get it?
So next time Moody Merrill comes along batting her eye lashes, quit being wankers and just ignore her.
So Becky Lynch was back front of house last night and the prep work for the match at TLC in mid-December had to quickly get under way. No time to dwell on Ronda Rousey, the rivalry between Becky and Charlotte has to be dusted off for (at least?) one more curtain call.
Given the positive reception to Charlotte vs Ronda at Survivor Series there are some who still believe WWE will carry on regardless with pushing towards that Charlotte vs Ronda Wrestlemania 35 match. I think, unless they actually want fans to riot in New Jersey, that is extremely unlikely at this point. NY and wider environs is very much The Man's spiritual stomping grounds. But, unfortunately, I don't think we'll get a straight Becky vs Ronda match either despite that being the best bet for a strong match. No, WWE are too hung up on Flair. Personally I can take her or leave her, she's an able performer but no more than that. She was always the weakest link in the chain of NXT's 'four horsewomen'. But WWE does wet its collective pants over 'legacy' so we're rather stuck with Charlotte. At this point, my money would be on a four-way match roping in Charlotte, Becky, Ronda and Nia. Nia Jax was getting monster heat at Survivor Series for the poorly timed blow she landed on Lynch. If that can keep rolling then they're not going to want to miss out on capitalising on it. It would also mean it would be a match involving two faces - one from Raw and one from Smackdown - and two heels - one from Raw and one from Smackdown (which is the kind of balance they do prefer) with Charlotte and Nia as heels and Ronda and Becky the faces.
Because, oh yes, as I'd kind of predicted, Becky was playing the face role when she came out to cut the PPV match promo. And Charlotte was generating plenty of heel heat. (And a couple of 'woos' from those who favoured the Survivor Series beatdown.) It's still, to my mind, a mistake, but that's the WWE for you.
At least they've added Asuka to the match at TLC which will be, um, a TLC match. Asuka is a strong performer so her addition is definitely a good thing although, as a second face, it does potentially dilute the emphasis on Becky and make it all about Charlotte, because duh. (Also: that's Tables, Ladders and Chairs for those unfamiliar. It means violent use of foreign bodies is not only allowed but actively encouraged. It also means that, almost certainly, the way to win the match will be to climb a ladder and unhook the championship belt which will be suspended twenty feet (or so?) above the ring. Which means one or two of these girls will be going for high spot big falls and probably through tables. Can be rough.) It also seems to offer a potential route for Becky to drop the strap without actually getting beat. So the betting would very much be on Charlotte winning. Because duh.

I'm single and would like to find love at least once in my life.
If you want a really weird and wild female wrestling check out the feud/storyline with Impact Wrestling's Allie, Rosemary, and Su Lung. It's wrestling with multiverses, demons, zombies, coffins that are inter dimensional portals, soul selling, and other fantasy elements.
Allie and Rosemary even have their own YouTube show called Masters of the Multiverse on Allie's own Youtube channel, that plays into their own convoluted wrestling angles and storylines from various different promotions that they've worked for over the years and turns into a fantasy series exploring their own mythology. It's also a way to remind people that Rosemary is still around as she recovers from knee surgery.
I would rather be hated for being honest, than being loved as a liar.
So I'd kind of like if Asuka wins at TLC. With a match booked to play to all three woman's strengths, but long term I'd love if WWE built up Becky Lynch for next years Wrestlemania main event. Like proper main event not co main event. Have Becky versus Ronda Rousey headline the show. Have Becky go in Heel, Ronda Face and then maybe do a double turn at the event. So in my head, in order for that to happen, Becky needs to lose her belt, but I wouldn't want her to lose it to Charlolte... but losing it to Asuka should be fine, and then that way, at Royal Rumble Becky can win the Woman Royal Rumble and then challenge Ronda for her belt... also I'm a bit bitter Asuka lost to Charlotte at this years Wrestlemania, so them having a feud where Asuka equals the score would be great. Could also introduce Shayna Baszler (whose great) to Smackdown and have her antagonize Becky until Rumble - after Wrestlemania could start building up a 4 MMA Horsewoman vs 4 WWE woman feud.
I'm also hoping WWE do well by Sonya Deville too, she has been given some shine in matches recently.
Side note: Always been a very very very casual fan of wrestling, but my best friend started to get into it, and when you have a friend thats keeping up to date with it, so hard to not start getting into the drama, and wanting to book creatively. Also I really really wish Ember Moon's character was more fantastical and mythical, like you know, an actual werewolf, would be freaking awesome. Have fun with it etc have her bite other wrestlers and create more werewolf wrestlers, have spooky entrances, have another wrestler have to wrestle their former best friend whose know a werewolf, and try and find a cure! Ahhhaha.

WWE booking is so damn frustrating.
Right now Lynch is red-hot, the hottest property the WWE have had in years and the first time a woman has ever had this kind of crazy heat.
But they've already got her playing face. It's particularly absurd because they've reacted to the new high she found and the headlines she attracted after the bloody invasion of Raw by passing those parts of her act which got The Man so super-over in the first place to Charlotte Flair.
But of course WWE booking do this over and over when another performer gets more love than their chosen top star.
In this instance, for me, it just makes Flair seem like a second rate imitation and dilutes Lynch. Not good for either.
