As already contained in the title I would like to open a Topic concerning the Dark Ritual (DR) mechanic.
I would like to Point oiut and discuss the huge difference in treatement of the DR if you Play a Female Warden (FW) or a Male Warden (MW) and mire specially a FW romancing Alistair (please this a not a misogynist or misandry Topic so please do not use such Argument).
In this last case you have only 3 possibilities:
-You die killing the Archidemon
-Alistair die sacrificing himself because of his love for the FW
-Take part to the DR and in this specifically case means sending Alistair to do it. There in no other choice
In theory I have no Problem with such Dilemma and with such tragic decision. For a "happy endning" you Need to pay the Price.
But what really bother me and make me feel angry is that it is only the case for a FW romancing Alistair. It is a Sentiment of injustice of the very different Treatment of Situation and playthrough I would like to Point out. I fell it like an unjustifiable relentlessness toward the character.
I am really open to other mind but please let me just explain myself:
If you Play a FW you can romancing Alistair 8already explained) Leliana or Zevran. For the last two if you romance them you have a way out: you can convince Alistair or Logain to do it. You do not have to force /let your LI do it. You can have a happy end (your character or your LI produce no demon Baby). The price to pay for that is in my opinion more acceptable and not so high.
Then if you Play a MW you can romance Leliana (same principle as previously mentionned) or Morigan and in this last case zhere is a big very unfair difference. It is Jackpot: you can same your MWs life by producing a child oiut of love with your LI (even if it is a ritual). In other words you can be (1) alive (2) have a woman who loves you alive and (3) lives with (see witch hunter dlc) and (4) have a child with (which according to DAI will be in the end a normal child without the god Spirit thanks to Flemeth/ Mythal). In no other playthrough the Wardan can have a child. And for the FW it is impossible in each playthrough. There is absolute no jusitification for such a huge difference in treatement. There is no Price to pay to have the most happy endning ever (worse you are rewarding by a child, a perfectly healthy and normal child).
This unfair and totally incomprehensible.
On one Hand if you are a FW romancning Alistair who wants to stay alive you have to convince the love of your life to sleepp with a woöam whom he despises in a Magic blood ritual and produce a fatherless bastard (and according to his hystory it is a big deal) and iti is not easier for the FW. Really when you see it through her eyes (wenn in love of course) it is really heartbreaking. It is really cruel and harsh when you see on the other Hand how easy it is for a MW romancing Morigan.
This difference is unfair. Either every playthrough has a way out or neither has.
I do not know of Bioware care for waht can the Players can feel but I really wisch the next game fix this injusitice. Even (more specially even) an FM romancing Alistair deserve a happy ending. And it is apparatly not a question of ressources beacause the found ressrouce to create a child (with voice and everything) whom existence is optionable. And for the FW?!! Nothing. Ah sorry the unresolved search for the cure! It is a joke it is?
Am I the only on Feeling this injustice? Do you believe it is fair? Or should Bioware had handled the DR better?
Thank you for reading and I am looking Forward for your opinion.
