    DA: Inquisition Companions

    I've searched through the internet for a bit and through the forum, but my forum-fu is a bit rusty.

    I'm looking for the nine Inquisition Companions statted out as DARPG characters. I'm can't imagine that no one else has put them together for the game, but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Heck, I can't even find the Origins companions built as PCs for the game.

    I can build them if I have to, but was hoping to find them already done.

    Hey guys

    Geez, I never posted the finished posting these characters Mainly because I didn't play DA:I as much as DA:O and DA2... But I have those stats in a .doc somewhere. I'll try to post them here (without the formatting I usually do on my thread, sorry) as soon as I'm back home :-)

    Much like Icarus. I never got around to fully stating them out. I did post some basic lay outs for them at level 10 though.

    I confess that it was Alurvelve's stats that made me want to do something like that xD Thanks for the inspiration, man

    1. Ritual, to me, implies ceremony and activity. Things that can't be performed in a 15 sec round. More importantly, with the force multipliers you could apply, you might not want that to be an every round occurrence.
    2. For location, my thoughts weren't on specifics as a detail alone, but as a force multiplier. With no MP cost, and especially if you extend casting time, the stunt chart doesn't work as-is. So I'd recommend dropping the success check. Instead, a ritual with no circle could have maybe a flat 50% chance of failure; a circle drawn with a stick in the dirt has a 25% chance; a specially prepared ritual room in a Circle Tower has 0% chance. And/or, the more prepared the chamber, the added benefits to the casting.
    3. Personally, I'm not overly keen on non casters performing ritual magic, but other systems allow it, so I was just tossing it out there. D&D allows certain spells to any class, and IIRC Shadowrun allows non-casters to participate. More importantly would be the number of mages -- would having X mages boost the spell effect?
    Example: casting Fireball has like a 4 yd radius for 3d6 damage. However, a ritual fireball, cast by 5 mages in a specifically prepared ritual room could have say a 10 yd radius and say 9d6 damage -- each mage adding 1d6 damage and 1 yd, and the quality of the circle acting as a bonus 2 mages. Food for thought - it's more work this way.
