Dragon Age Redemption

I’ve finally gotten around to watching the six episodes in the web series “Dragon Age Redemption” starring Felicia Day.

What did I think?

Well I’ll qualify what follows with two points:

  • I don’t like web series. I find they have too much preamble and postamble for a few minutes of entertainment. I don’t generally go out of my way to watch them.
  • Having been involved with the development of Dragon Age Origins I cringe a bit when I see the Dragon Age world used by outsiders.


Overall I enjoyed it. It was less campy than I feared (though still somewhat campy). The production values were higher than I had expected given what I imagine was a relatively small budget to create the series. I thought the story fit the flavor of the Dragon Age universe, with a couple exceptions which I won’t bother getting into because they were mostly minor.

(So I didn’t cringe too much)

And the geeky part of me enjoyed seeing a fictive world I helped build appear on the big screen (well, my iPad’s screen, anyways). There’s still so much Dragon Age *content* — other countries and regions of the world of Dragon Age — that have not been explored yet that I’m always excited to see some of it appear to the public. I spent years carting (in the digital sense) hundreds of pages of world and story documentation around… nice to see it getting used (a bit)!

I’m curious what others thought of the series?
