Dragon Age Design Diary #1

Recently the first Dragon Age design diary went online. In this article Green Ronin’s Chris Pramas provides us with some details on the upcoming Dragon Age RPG that is based on Bioware’s new computer roleplaying game Dragon Age: Origins. Here’s an excerpt for you convenience:

I also decided early on that I wanted Dragon Age to be accessible to new players. As I began to lay the groundwork for the system, I realized that Dragon Age was a fantastic opportunity to bring new gamers into the hobby. I knew Dragon Age: Origins was going to be great and that there would be a lot of fans eager to learn more about the world of Thedas. A tabletop RPG could give that to them, and introduce them to the style of gaming that had birthed computer RPGs in the first place.

And if you haven’t already read about it, you should check out the interview at the Escapist Magazine, too. The Dragon Age computer game is one of the better CRPGs I’ve played in this year and I am very excited to learn more about Green Ronin’s pen & paper game based on the franchise.
