  • Banners for the un-bannered

    I know, what a stupid thread title. Whatevs, man!
    I thought it would be fun to speculate on the banner-esque, non-attacking toons for the groups that really wouldn't have a banner in the game!

    We currently have banners for Templar, Ferelden, Tevinter, and Wardens.

    Presumably in the future, we'll see banners for Orlesian, Dalish (elves), Circle, Chantry, Qunari, and a few other organized groups.

    But I can't really see a "banner" in the same sense for Creatures, or Darkspawn, or some others. So what sort of toons would be possible see in place for them?

    I would love to see a Fade Rift that doesn't attack (or has a weak attack) but buffs demons, in the way that banners do. But I can't think of anything great for creatures. Sylvan Stump? Not likely... Or blighted.... Tainted Stalactite! Wonderful!

    What do you think would make an adequate "banner" for these teams? And what other teams need a non-banner? Or do they not need one? Are you super psyched to spent gems on Stumpy??

    Fade Rift is a great idea. Demons surely aren't in need of any more LCs but I can certainly see it making its way into the game very gracefully.

      Yeah, I was thinking about it being a regular sized toon. Most rifts in DA:I were bigger, but not excessively large.

        Fade Rift sounds awesome.

        On a related note, I really wish there would be more cool looking demons like the Envy Demon in the meta instead of Kitty -.-

          Fade rift would be awesome, but I would look forward to an elven banner. Maybe Mythal's Banner which could also buff GoM. That would make for an awesome elf team.

            Sunfire Yeah, there are a lot of really cool demon designs- I'd love to see more of them more often!

            Smiley_Face It would be really awesome if they added the Elves group to GoM, make things much easier! I know that in the games there is a banner for Dalish elves, but maybe they could alter it to be more inclusive, since not all Elves would unite under the Dalish banner. Mythal would be a great elven banner

              *Not my idea* Forgot where I heard it... but the Quanari having a non attacking mother buffer Dreadnaught LC would be really wicked cool.

                And the Fade Rift idea is really neat too. A+

                  I propose an Apostate banner consisting of Meredith's petrified corpse, adorned with a scribbled-on handlebar mustache and a decorative (and probably stolen) Orlesian hat.

                    For creatures they could create a legendary support version of the Lady of the Forest. If it needs to be an inanimate object then some type of totem could work as well.

                      My thought was inanimate, just to follow the banner trend, but other support toons could definitely be used as well! So far SoF and the Dowager are the only support toons we really see much of (beside banners)

                        I actually like the title for this thread, and I too would love to see a Fade Rift for Demons. Obviously Sylvan Stump would be perfect to release alongside the much desired/largely forgotten Mad Hermit of the Brecilian Forest!

                        Creatures could have a cluster of Dragon-eggs. I think it could (possibly) bring together Creatures/Dragons/Reavers.

                        Blighted could have a Darkspawn Forge. It's the least horrific inanimate thing I could think of for the Darkspawn.

                          I forgot about the forge, that would be cool! Also, +1 for cluster of eggs!

                          You mentioned the Mad Hermit (yes, why have we not seen him yet?!), which reminds me of another "mad" character--Ruck, the dwarf who became lost and went mad in the Deep Roads. Perhaps another non-attacker.

                            Here I am posting again, seriously this is a great thread though and has had me thinking.

                            The Bull's Chargers are quite an incomplete faction in HoDA, but if more resources and imagination were lent to them, I think Stitches would make a great banner-style non-attacking support toon for them (and Inquisition also, though I realize there are enough of those). The short version is that he's a human fifth-blight veteran, and a combat medic.

                            Stitches is a Fereldan veteran of the Fifth Blight and a healer for the Bull's Chargers...

                              True! Combat medic could be a great non-attacker. Wouldn't make Chargers meta by any means, but would definitely help pad and round out their group!

                              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 Sr 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.
                              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.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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:
