  • Dragon Chronicle: The Spiffy Tale of Alduin

    How's that for a title? "Spiffy" hasn't been used in a thread title before (or much at all on this forum) and I'll never let it be said that I'm no trailblazer Anyways, for anyone interested here are some facts about me:

    1. If you hadn't already figured it out, I took my name from the main antagonist of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game has very significant personal meaning to me, being my first real escape from things like the stress of high school and becoming an adult (yes, I'm one of the community's younger members), my mother's battle with breast cancer (she's all good now!), and even my first really bad breakup. It's my all-time favorite game and actually what prompted me to get into gaming in the first place. Incredibly rich fantasy worlds are probably my favorite type of fiction, so of course I love the Dragon Age games as well.
    2. I live in Wisconsin, in the USA. Half the year it's a sunny green wonderland, and the other half is a frozen arctic hellscape. But I love it anyway.
    3. I'm a guy.
    4. My favorite types of music are hard rock/metal and musical soundtracks. Quite the contrast, I know. Favorite band is Shinedown, and favorite musical's either the Book of Mormon or Pippin.
    5. I started playing HoDA on July 28, 2014. My first legendary was Barkspawn from the starter pack, and my first GCP got me Schmoop. My favorite hero in HoDA is Magister Dorian, and he would be even if he wasn't one of the most powerful heroes in the game - he looks so cool, and even moreso when he's mythic! Plus I love Dorian.
    6. My number one goal on the forums is to spread levity and positivty wherever I can. Oh yeah, and making the weekly hero threads and the ocasional poll. Those are kind of important too.
    7. This isn't that spiffy yet, so I'm going to come up with some actual spiffy facts, starting with number 8.
    8. Since about 7th grade or so, I've lived with a broken jaw. I got kicked in the face while roughhousing with some friends, which messed up the connection the left side of my jaw has with my skull. It's not too major so I never had surgery or anything, but it makes some pretty gnarly crackling sounds if I talk, eat, or sing for a long period of time.
    9. I have a dog named Penny and she's the love of my life. I'm also becoming increasingly aware that while I thought Penny was a pretty creative name and felt great when I thought of it, it's actually pretty common for girl dogs.
    10. My entire family is of the firm conviction that my childhood home was haunted by the ghost of my prankster great grandfather. The best story was when my sister was two years old, and she woke my parents up in the middle of the night laughing. When they asked why, she said "grandpa's tickling me feet!" At that age, she had never even heard of him... but apparently she met him.
    11. My favorite food is pepperoni pizza. My second favorite food is sausage pizza.
    112. There are only eleven facts about me. That's it, that's all. There's nothing else to know.

    Unless, of course, you want to PM me. I'm always open to that, and willing to give advice or support to anyone who wants it. You can also message me on LINE, my ID is alduintheworldeater. I'm happy to talk! Thanks for reading!

      I appreciate to get to know you seasoned campaigners. And good to hear about the recovery of your mother.

      And, well, the broken jaw thingy broadened my horizon with regard to "spiffy". Had to reassure me of this word's meaning and look it up, actually. This generous application of "spiffy" is what I'd call, well, spiffy. Thanks!

            Forum Rules and Disciplinary Actions

            These rules set boundaries to ensure that the Heroes of Dragon Age game and forums continue to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of topics. As Heroes of Dragon Age and its forums are available to players 13 and older, refrain from excessive cursing/swearing. For more information, please see this link.

            By accessing the EA Capital Games applications, users agree to accept that game administrators and moderators may remove any content submitted by a player as defined below. Users agree to EA Terms of Service as well. Misrepresenting oneself to engage in illegal activity will be immediately reported to EA for legal action.

            Even though these are forums to allow free expression of ideas, there are other (real) people involved and one should respect their opinions and questions as ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE TOPIC HEADINGS. Moderators are here to uphold and enforce these rules and the Terms of Service. Freedom to express your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and feedback, does not allow you the freedom of saying anything you want when you agree to the Terms of Service.

            Unless otherwise stated, courses of action will be as follows:

            1. First Offense - Warning
            2. Second Offense - 3 day ban
            3. Third Offense - 1 week ban
            4. Fourth Offense - Permanent ban

            If you have received a Permanent ban, this will extend to all future accounts created. If you are discovered to create a new account, it will also be banned.

            What is not permitted in the discussion forum:

            Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell, or peruse any products or services including other applications or accounts, along with chain letters and junk mail.

            Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and closed or deleted, and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

            Racism, bigotry, misogyny, hate speech, discrimination against any race, sexual preference, gender, or religion will not be tolerated.

            All topics/posts will be deleted. Death threats, even joking, will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning, with further review from the Lead Moderator.

            Flaming includes material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing.

            As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will. All posts/threads will be deleted.

            Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

            Right to Privacy
            You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing, against another member's will, any information that is private and personal. Nor will you post private communication between EA Capital Games Support, other forum members, moderators, community managers, administrators, EA Capital Games employees, or partners of EA Capital Games on these forums or anywhere else.

            Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

            Discussing or posting of another player's spending habits will be deleted.

            Obvious spam (repetitive nonsense posts) will result in the poster permanently banned and all posts deleted.

            Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums.

            Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. Forum poster will be permanently banned from the forums.

            Providing or asking for information regarding the illegal downloading of "warez", "gamez" or any other software protected by copyright.

            Future Events/Promotions
            Any posts or threads revealing future events or promotions that were not disclosed by the Capital Games team will be deleted.

            Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.

            The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

            Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

            Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

            Off-Topic Posting
            Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.

            Political Posting
            Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

            Customer Support Inquiries
            All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

            Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

            Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.

            What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
            It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

            To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

            What happens if I break the rules?
            At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

            Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

            For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

            Posting Suggestions
            In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

            1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

            2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

            3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

            4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

            5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

            6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

            7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

            In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

            EA TOS English
            EA TOS French
            EA TOS German
            EA TOS Russian
            EA TOS Spanish

            By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
