My husband and I have both been sick with the flu since this past weekend. I'm still exhausted and achy, but at least my fever broke last night. Blarg! Thankfully, the flu was the kind without the vomit and other fun stuff. I just had the coughing, aches, stuffy and runny nose. Anyway, I've been muddling around in a drug and fever-induced stupor. What better thing to do than play a video game? Luckily, the Dragon Age II came out yesterday. Here's some screen shots of my character Gwen Hawke.
There may be a few minor spoilers, but nothing that you really need to worry about.
Gwen (in front) and her sister Bethany. I went for the gamine look for Gwen.
You're going to have to forgive me as I spam pictures of Flemeth. I adore everything about her—hairstyle, armor, attitude, voice (yay, Kate Mulgrew!). She's beyond awesome and I hope she appears again later in the game. She has to, right? Otherwise, why go through all that effort on her character design.
Flemeth's looks have changed a lot since the first game. It makes me wonder if she presents herself differently to different people. She is a shape-changer after all.
Her armor/outfit is so amazing. I wish Gwen could wear it. Although, she probably wouldn't look as awesome in it as Flemeth.
Aveline and Gwen. I'm really loving Aveline so far; she reminds me of a Valkyrie. It's so romantic how much she loves her husband, but so very sad too. :(
The girls. :)
Prince Sebastian Vael hanging a work order on the Chantry board. He wants revenge on the people who murdered his family.
I think he's the best looking male character that I've encountered in the game so far. He has a sexy voice too—hint of a Scottish brogue.Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing;
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.

The crew (from left to right): Bethany, Varric, Gwen, and Aveline.
The crew picked up Fenris last night too. It's interesting how different elves look in this game as compared to the first Dragon Age.
Gwen's not quite sure what to think of Fenris yet. She doesn't appreciate people manipulating her.
Found Anders too, but haven't gotten him to join the party yet. I got tired and went to bed. ;)
