I'd actually be okay with that, since I don't really care for the qunari.

Yeah I wonder why that was. Bioware did concept art for female qunari, but there weren't any in DA2.

There weren't any female dwarves either! I really liked my female dwarf warrior from Origins...

Your typical game production process these days sees the creation of a lot of concept art, most of which never makes it into the game in any form. And concept art starts early - at this point, most of the quests are not planned yet. They probably just had a change of plans for whatever quest/character was supposed to involve a female dwarf, or there never was one to begin with and they just did the concept in case there would be need for it later on.

It's a pity, because the concept art for Kirkwall is awesome.

With the exception of the Gallows, none of the areas of Kirkwall in the game are able to match the concept art.

To me blood magic is like seeing some poor berk take hard drugs. They always say they could quit at anytime but they always fail. Humans have a tendency to overestimate themselves (willpower, determination, personal ability, etc) in which in the case of blood magic is fatal not only for the user but for everyone surrounding them when they succumb.

Again like drugs, we can forsee the likelihood of people turning to blood magic when their emotions are in the trough whether it be anger, fear, despair, etc (like the dark side of the force).

Because of this, they must have some checks and balances to prevent disasters. The templars is portrayed as that balance but they quite frankly suck. From what we see, it's possible to see if someone is using blood magic through the scent of the blood, so why did they not research on an auto self destruct mechanism (spell, nanobots, whatever) on detection of the scent? The only real drawback would be arrows/weapons tipped in the blood of blood magic mages would cause them to self destruct (which would be easily countered if the strength of said scent could be measured)

Actually, Merrill could determine if a person had been possessed by a demon through his blood, using her knowledge of blood magic. Completely different.

Templars don't seem to have a reliable way to detect blood mages, since fucking Orsino was a blood mage, and Greagoir didn't know Jowan was one for sure (he only suspected) until the man attacked him with blood magic.

If they did have any way of reliably detecting blood mages, Meredith's entire crazy crusade would never have happened--the other ranking templars would have forced her to step down.

Doubtful. Even human converts to the Qun are hard to re-convert by the chantry, which means the Qun isn't so bad to them.

Actually Qunari women are really well off for our standards, and are in no way comparable to Muslim women. They are basically the brains of their society, while the men are the brawn, neither being superior to the other. The only beef is that their roles are predetermined in the Qun, so nobody really has a choice in the matter. For this same reason we could never get a female Qunari companion, only a Tal-Vashoth, if we wanted to be really technical about it

The only bloodmage I have seen who has used his power aplenty and well enough is Avernus from DA1's DLC. Though he failed badly at controlling the demon to stop it from killing everyone else because he opened too many portals at once.

Nonetheless, he is most powerful bloodmage I have known through the entire DA series.

Patch 1.02 is coming out tomorrow, according to what a dev said. Fixes about 100+ issues, both gameplay-wise and with technical specs.

That's good news. I've been wanting to play the game for a second time, but I figured only after the release of a new patch.

That's the thing. The Qun isn't overly harsh, it's just restrictive. If it was harsh like extremist Islam, the Chantry wouldn't have such a hard time beating back its influence. The qunari are okay with this because they're clearly not very individualistic compared to humans--which makes sense. They're not human!
