But to everyone saying " Inquisitor story isn't finished", Well name one protag who isn't dead whose story is finished? The Warden could have had a sequel to their story because witch hunt ended with you learning that Flemeth is a bigger threat then you thought then either stab Morrigan or Follow her in the mirror. Even if it's the Orleasan Warden if ours is dead that moment still happens because Bioware has made all DLC canon events. Now our Warden if alive is looking for a cure for the calling sounds pretty important considering how huge that would impact Thedas and the blight. Warden story is not done.
Hawke could possibly be dead in the fade somehow survived and is trapped on the run in the fade or is somewhat involved in the Warden Civil War. The Warden Civil War plot being the biggest. Not to mention between DA2 and Inquisition Hawke was obviously busying working with the Warden Alley so again still adventuring still having a story. Hawke story is not done.
And of course we know about the Inquisitor. I have nothing against duel protag. But those that just want the Inquisitor changes the core of the dragon age series which judging my three games is about how new heroes influence the Thedas during the Age of Dragons. Tevinter's sets up to good of a chance to make a new protag that could help us dive deeper in the culture how Origins did. Every Protagonist in the series life is going to go own between games and we can't control that. Nobodies story truly ends the perspective of which we play from game to game is what changes and that is what has made Dragon age world building stand out amongst RPGs. You build on top of your world with a new hero each game
Huh, here I thought the core of the series was telling the best stories possible. Not sacrificing that to follow some unofficial arbitrary rule that they've already considered breaking in the past. I guess you think all Mass Effect games should involve Shepard since by your argument they were the core of the series. And sure, go ahead and continue that tradition...once you properly conclude the current story.
I think your confusing yourself. How are you going to claim me confusing our heroes for another story when you just did it for the Inquisitor. Don't twist things to fit your narrative because the Inquisitor completed the main goal just as much as Warden or Hawke. Main goal of base game Origins Stop the Blight kill the Archdemon, accomplished. DA2 Stop Arishok and put a stop to Mage/Templar conflict in Kirkwall. accomplished. DAI stop the Breach and Cory. Accomplished. Sure Solas played a role in the breach but don't confuse the literal words of "stop those responsible" as the core of the goal. The most repeated and clear Goal of DAI was stopping Cory even more so then the Breach which was stopped in the 1st Act. But in the heart of base game DAI it was to stop Cory that is clear as day and Cory is clear as day no longer a threat. Solas was not the objective of DAI. Even trespassers the goal wasn't Solas even though he was involved the goal was to Stop the Qun mini invasion. Do you want to know when Solas became a objective for the Inquisitor? After Trespassers when the objectives for DAI and all its DLC was completed. So the hunt for Solas is literally a entirely different mission, does it involve the Breach somewhat yes but can we not say that The Warden hunting for a cure for the Blight is not just as similar of a ties missions? The Warden is looking for a cure to something that is connected to one of the major threats in all of Thedas so we can argue that The Warden whose job as a Warden is normally Blight related business is still acting according to its order. Just as the Inquisition has handled mostly dealings with different pantheons in Thedas who pose a threat.
Trespassers threat once again was not Solas because Solas was just in the early phase of his plans. He didn't become a threat until the convo with him. So like I pointed out Witch Hunt and Trespassers do the exact same thing. Tie up the story of our Protag, find the mage companion who left us after the main mission. Find out information about a bigger plot and proceed to investigate it either via taking the grimoire or going thru the Mirror, Hunting Solas as a disbanding Inquisition or Chantry control inquisition. Also lets not forget the Inquisition not being a Independent public Organization is just as important as what happens to the Inquisitor themselves. The Inquisition is itself as much as the protagonist of the story as the PC. So its disbanding is symbolic to the Story of the Inquisition as we know it ending. And no Mass Effecting switching from Shepard wasn't a problem even though considering how Mass Effect has done since moving from tradition is a pure example, but The way Dragon Age is set up it changes so much of the system of companionship and romance unless you want to sacrifice new characters for returning ones. Again im not oppose to the Inquisitor returning because I like Hawke coming back just not how it was handled. If the Inquisitor returns the final Act of DA4 that's fine but they should in no way be the standalone Protagonist. For one youll have to write all the Romances back or else your going to have a lot of fans feel shafted that the Solas romance story arc continues while others may get what a codex entry? The Tradition of Dragon Age has what has been working for the series if its not broke why fix it? Of all things that is wrong with the series changing Protags has never been a issue. The fact so many call for Wardens, Hawkes, and Inquisitor return because of our attachment to these past heroes are a testament to the good writing and stories bioware does. It makes me look forward to what new hero they can get me attached too.
