Community description:Dragon Age fanwork prompt community

Welcome to Players of Thedas


Players of Thedas is a weekly prompt community dedicated to Wardens, Hawkes, and Inquisitors from the Dragon Age series. You can introduce yourself to the community or you can jump right in and pick a prompt.


How this Community Works


Each Tuesday a community mod will announce a new round by introducing a new prompt. During that week you are welcome to use that prompt to inspire a fanwork for any of your Wardens, Hawkes, or Inquisitors. Post your fanwork to this community, squee over other people’s fanworks, develop your player characters, and have fun!

This community welcomes a broad interpretation of the Warden, Hawke, and the Inquisitor, including canonical and non-canonical characters, relationships, and worlds.

The purpose of this community is to foster ideas for character development. Interesting characters are known to make terrible choices. Hell-on-wheels Wardens are just as welcome as saintly Wardens. Same goes for Jerk Hawkes and Assquisitors. We ask everyone to be nice and to be supportive of creative exploration. Abusive comments, backhanded compliments, and trolling will be removed by the mods.

Prompts


A mod will begin a new round every week with a new prompt. Once a prompt is in play, you are free to use it during its featured week and during subsequent amnesty rounds. You may use a prompt more than once for the same character and for different characters. You are not required to make use of every prompt.

To suggest a prompt, visit the Prompts Suggestion Page.


Accepted Fanworks


The community accepts all kinds of fanworks about your Wardens, Hawkes, and Inquisitors. Anything that helps you brainstorm, role play, or develop your character is accepted. This includes fan fiction, art, vids, gifs, comics, poetry, essays, meta, flowcharts, dialogue analysis, crafts, etc. All genres are welcome. Fanworks can be gen, slash, het, femslash, threesomes, or moresomes.

There are no length requirements. Fanworks do not have to be completed. You may post drafts, sketches, works in progress, or segments from larger works. We only ask that your work is somehow inspired by or related to the prompt in play when you post. You are encouraged to interpret prompts in wildly creative ways.

You may combine this challenge with challenges on other communities as long as it complies with the other community’s rules.


Acceptable Player Characters and Universes


Any interpretation of the Warden, Hawke, or Inquisitor is welcome, whether it is supported by the games or not.

Player characters may be in canonical or non-canonical relationships with any character from the series.

Player characters are not required to act according to the canonical script of the games. We also welcome Broscas who were never recruited by Duncan, Suranas who never left the tower, and Hawkes who were recruited by Cassandra to become the leader of the Inquisition. Creative reinterpretations of other characters in the role of the Warden, Hawke, or Inquisitor are also welcome.

Your player character’s universe does not need to follow a playable sequence of events and may include events from fan-created mods or from your imagination.
