    Interesting to listen to, as ever. I thought the observation that Free Marchers make good PCs for players with little knowledge of the Dragon Age world was a good one - I suppose they are quite generic. I'm also reminded of a supplement that came out for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, which was a sort of kingdom generator for an area called the Border Princes - basically one rolled a few dice and consulted charts to create a mini-area for a campaign. The Free Marches is similarly perfect for carving out a little niche and letting your PCs attempt to climb the slippery slope to power and influence, DA 2 style.

    Regarding specific plot hooks, I'm surprised you didn't mention the many events, even outside Kirkwall, that occur in them during the Inquisition period, as covered in various War Table missions:

    Ansburg - there is a mass demonic outbreak and the Countess takes refuge in her own keep as they rampage around the city (the Countess dies in some sequences).

    Hasmal - issues around loyal Templars guarding the last functioning Circle, with a hostile populace outside.

    Wycombe - the city suffers a Kirkwall type crisis, undergoing Venatori influences and Red Lyrium infection, with Duke Antoine ending up dead.

    Any of the above would work well as the basis for an entire campaign - in fact I believe the Fateswain one that can be watched online is set during the latter.

    My question for the next podcast is hopefully a simple one for you to answer. Basically, I'm interested in using sound effects (particularly music) in my campaign, but I'm not very tech savvy. Do you have a sort of idiot's guide to downloading the right programme and then getting Dragon Age music onto it? The sort of thing a grandparent would be able to follow and understand?

    Many thanks and keep up the good work!
