It’s been a long week full of being at an organizational development conference, so today I’m going to talk about Dragon Age 2. Which is a video game.
Which I’m not even playing. I’m watching someone else play it.
(Yes, I recognize that this is some strange meta-level of video game enjoyment. )
The reason I have called you together today is to talk about Varric, the coolest fantasy dwarf that ever wrote a bodice ripper. This guy is like my new hero. He’s proud of his writing, he cares about the people around him but still has boundaries, and he has a giant crossbow named Bianca. All the things I’ve ever really wanted from life! (… sort of.)
Do you guys have any characters from fiction that you really like or admire? (You’re allowed to pick and choose traits. For example, I really admire how confident and observant and thoughtful the Count of Monte Cristo is, but not his, shall we say, sense of moral direction.)
