    the inherent evil comes from making it super easy for demons to get through, but then you have people like solas who will pedantically argue that demons aren't evil they're just following their nature

    Well IF (that's a big if) we are to believe Solas about spirits and demons, they turn in to whatever the viewer or summoner expects them to be. So if you expect an evil demon, it'll be an evil demon. If you expect a helpful spirit, it'll help.

    I do wonder what would have happened if Merrill instead of the Keeper had released that thing. The Keeper absolutely expected a demon to attempt to posses her, which is exactly what happened. Would the same thing have happened to Merrill?

    I'm not sure I buy Solas's kumbayah stuff though. I don't think that creature was up to any good.

    There's nothing evil about using your own blood to fuel spells.

    Using other people's blood unpermitted is pretty evil, and since blood magic has much more powerful possibilities than conventional magic, it's obviously tempting for people already inclined to do nasty things. And, obviously, it makes for pretty good villains. Oh, another cave full of blood mages, what a surprise!

    The only person dumber than Merrill in DA2 is Keeper Marethari.

    Nah, the gangs that attack Hawke in Act 2 onwards are definitely the dumbest.

    Also, of note is that DA:I has almost no blood mages, just an evil mage cult that may incidentally use blood magic but it's basically never a focus.

    Kirkwall really was a crazy exception.

    If you choose the wrong dialogue after you confront Marethari, the entire clan attacks you and dies.

    What i did was tell them that it was all Merrills fault, because it true. And as her man sometimes i have to tell the hard truths.

    Edit: damn phone posting. Yea also what Rainfall said.

    You have to take the responsibility bullet for her, so to speak.

    You can do the whole "companion tell this npc what is up" thing a couple times

    It seemed like it was usually cassandra or varric but probably just because those are the two I had with me the most

    I'm reviewing the one scene with those characters in it

    and... she doesn't really say that? it's more along the lines of "HEY, THIS SHIT IS DANGEROUS, BE CAREFUL"

    Solas has at least two that I experienced.

    Well, Flemeth's exact quote to Merrill is, "As for you, child, step carefully. No path is darker than when your eyes are shut."

    Which implies a foolishness when walking a path with eyes closed.

    Ok if this is the case this is some dumb bullshit re: leliana
    I have done every skyhold interaction steering her to not murder, but missed the haven encounter altogether. She is still murder crazy.
    That is bullshit essentially locking me in at the beginning of the game when I didn't even really know you could have meaningful conversations with her. Not to mention that I have no way of telling her she's insane.

    Honestly once she's gone down that path, it seems prudent for your Inquisitor to simply smile and nod. Hell, when I told her I wouldn't support her for Murder Pope I half-expected the next cutscene to be me bleeding out on the floor with a knife in my kidneys

    To be fair, normally you are a surrogate father or mother figure.

    In this game, you are a surrogate god figure.

    my attitude to the orlesian court was very much "not my circus, not my monkeys"

    i'm not omnipotent, i can't perfectly predict how you people will respond to my actions, and frankly if you wanted me to you wouldn't be wearing masks

    getting a happy ending may technically be possible but is not my responsibility

    this was also the case with leliana

    also blood magic, much like guns, is in fact inherently evil
