Anora was in no danger while Howe locked her up?
You know how I know this?
Logic and Howe’s personality aside:
Recruit Loghain. Have him on FRIENDLY. (Bugged in vanilla! Mod to unlock it exists, as does a clip on YT)
Ask whether you broke into Howe’s estate for nothing.
If he trusts you as a friend, he will tell you no, you didn’t. Howe suggested to Loghain that Anora be killed. Loghain rejected the idea. Anora knew of this. And given that Howe has done some SICK shit….. I wouldn’t feel safe in his custody. Would you? As for not wanting to be taken back to the palace…no, her father wouldn’t kill her. Some of her father’s PEOPLE (Many of which being in Howe’s employ) are another matter. That is why she cannot be seen IN CAHOOTS WITH HER DAD’S ENEMIES. If you rat her out, she salvages her precarious situation by telling her father’s right hand that she’s not supporting you. So that…in addition to a failed alliance with someone incapable of the basics of politics (As she sees it) she won’t lose all the support of her father’s faction who’d see her support of the Warden as a betrayal. (Loghain even does so, if she supports you at the Landsmeet)
As for the innocents the Warden kills to free her, the most important ally in the Landsmeet….
They are as innocent as the fanatical cultists defending their homes in Haven. Whom you all kill to find something nobody knows for sure to exist….and whose children the Warden condemns to a miserable death after slaughtering their families.
As innocent as many of Jarvia’s carta dwarves who turned to crime because of the system the likes of Harrowmont support.
Most of the people who die at the Warden’s hands in Howe’s dungeon are torturers, jailors etc. You also SAVE a bunch of innocents.
Was freeing Anora worth it?
Was she in danger?
Sorry, this just wouldn’t stop bothering me.
Sometimes I can’t even figure out how I could have played the same video game as… some people.
tumblr is the reason why people think mental illness is “cute”. seriously though please don’t think having any type of mental illness is cute because fuck no they’re not ok
It’s not cool, it’s not trendy, it’s not hardcore.
Mental illness, emotional disorders, personality disorders, developmental disorders, sleep issues, the list goes on and on. It is incredibly offensive to those who not only struggle but attempt to not play victim who have these issues in society that a website glamorizes them. It undoes all the work different communities and individuals have done and puts us all back many years so just stop.
don’t want to spoil the post, but idea “wow mental illnesses are cool” is around at least since romanticism. I remember first poem we discussed on our literature lessons in high school was Adam Mickiewicz’s “Romantyzm” with narrator idealising girl with delusional attacks AND idealising people awed by her.
And since early 1800’s it’s still a strong movement.
Yes. Thank you. Fucking Hell.
And I mean I’m pretty sure it’s older than Romanticism as well. Ophelia, anyone? Pythias and other drugged oracles?
(also, hating on tumblr is often a cover for hating teenage girls, jussayin.)
Also, many cultures saw people with mental disorders and illnesses as closer to the spiritual world and being suberb.Let alone mention “holy fools” and - even more curious case - yurodivys.
I’m not sure about Ophelia, because I took an impression it was presented more as an effect of Hamlet’s behaviour (and he was an ass to her) and how badly even the sweeties people around can be affected by it than madness for sake of glamour
