With the recent release of Skyrim, other fantasy RPGs have gotten something of a mod cold shoulder. For this week’s blog, I wanted to revisit Dragon Age II, a fun Bioware game that got a bit of a bad rap for being less impressive than its predecessor. Whatever your opinion on the game, here are some fun mods to make you revisit Kirkwall.
Simple Summoning by Setiweb Have you ever wanted the enigmatic Sandal as one of your traveling companions? Perhaps a desire demon, or even a dragon? This mod allows you to enlist almost any character in Dragon Age II as a companion, replacing your Mabari war hound. Creator Setiweb allows you to chose from over 30 different companions. The hardest part is figuring out who to use!
The Fenris Files by Zombiezer0 In his mod, Zombiezer0 gives everyone’s favorite angst-elf some new digs. If you weren’t a fan of Fenris’ weird unitard, have no fear! In addition to an awesome coat and (gasp) shoes for Fenris, the mod allows you to customize his tattoo colors, facial appearance, and general color scheme. In my opinion, this mod vastly improves the appearance of original Fenris, and I am all for that!
The Rivaini Pirates by LapisLazzuli If, for whatever reason, you have an irresistible urge to turn Hawke into a pirate, now is your chance. LapisLazzuli’s Rivaini Pirates mod adds 4 unique pirate outfits for both males and females. Options include a variant of Isabella’s default outfit, a more gypsy-style look with a fringe skirt and bikini top, a male outfit with a vest, and an open-shirt version for the more adventurous!
