DRAGON AGE: ORIGINS: You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of a legendary order of guardians. With the return of mankind's ancient foe and the kingdom engulfed in civil war, you have been chosen by fate to unite the shattered lands and slay the archdemon once and for all. Explore a stunning world, make complex moral choices, and engage in bone-crushing visceral combat against massive and terrifying creatures.
Dragon Age: Origins is a beautifully rendered fantasy role-playing game with medieval European visualization for the game art direction. Combat is bloody and gruesome, filled with spraying blood and decapitation, but also stylized with special finishing blow animations. The game has various Downloadable Content adventures, items, and small expansions; and one major expansion/sequel, "Awakening".
AWAKENING Expansion: For centuries, the Grey Wardens-the ancient order of guardians, sworn to unite and defend the lands-have been battling the darkspawn forces. Legend spoke that slaying the Archdemon would have put an end to the darkspawn threat for centuries to come, but somehow they remain.
You are the Grey Warden Commander and have been entrusted with the duty of rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens and uncovering the secrets of the darkspawn and how they managed to remain.
How you choose to rebuild your order, how you resolve the conflict with "The Architect", and how you determine the fate of the darkspawn will be but some of the many complex choices that await and shape your journey as you venture to the new land of Amaranthine.

OUTFITS and EQUIPMENT in Dragon Age: Origins and the Awakening expansion
There are very few models, and the various types of weapons are typically recoloured versions of each model. The colour scheme is based on the material of its construction and typically there are two colours that are changed. We present the basic models and their recoloured variants, up to Tier 8 which does not properly exist in Dragon Age: Origins, but which does have a colour scheme that is very similar to Tier 8 in Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening.
The Awakening expansion adds material tiers 8 and 9, and a few new equipment models. Because of the little new content, we have put them together with the Origins items. Some Origins armor does not import into the Awakening expansion, so some tier 8 and tier 9 images are not available.
In addition to showing the colour variations for the basic weapon model in each category, we present unique models at material tier 3 (yew for bows and crossbows, steel for all other weapons).
Various factions in the game use the basic wooden or metal shields, but with an identifying crest overlaid. Other than the basic styles, there are also a few shields with a unique appearance. In addition to showing the colour variations for the basic shield styles in each category, we present the faction and unique models at material tier 3 (steel for metal shields, yew for wooden shields).
There are very few models for clothing, but a great many colour variations, which along with hair styles and hair colour variations helps the game achieve a "no two people look alike" illusion even though the overall face shape for each race is very similar.
Changes in material (and thus colour scheme) have a more marked effect on armor, simply because it occupies more visual space; we therefore present Tiers 1 to 8 where material significantly changes colour. Some armor sets do not have a piece for every location (usually the helmet is omitted); when a non-set piece was added, this is explicitly mentioned in the picture label / name. Many armor pieces and sets use the same colour and model of another set (e.g., Dwarven Noble Armor and Dwarven Massive Armor), and we have simply chosen one set and omitted the others.
