    I'm just gonna assume that they were just playing fetch with nugs in the nude. An odd past time, sure, but I'll just choose to believe this.

    But I think it's good that for the upcoming event, they distinguish between who you can actually romance vs. who you can just sleep with randomly. Not that there's much of that in DA aside from the examples you've provided.
    That means removing Isabela also(N/m see she's an option in DA2). Anora still should be added though(edited my post).

    Romance is also defined as: A feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. Court, woo.

    Love: An intense feeling of affection. Feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment.

      Yeah, but the romance options in the game are a pretty distinct list. It's not a list of characters who have romantic encounters throughout the franchise, just these specific companions who you can fall in love with in the games.

        The point is it's the PC who decides their love interest and love is defined by sexual attachment as well. So any character you can have sex with is a potential romance option. Despite any designer(Bioware) or contributor(Wiki) bias, and popular opinion. It's incorrect to classify them as flings, or inferior in some way based solely on the fact they have less dialogue and involvement in the hardcoded story since the PC ultimately decides the nuances of their character.

        In Origins I personally prefer Bella, in the Redcliffe tavern to everyone.

          However, as the owners of the IP, BioWare has exclusive and final rights to their classification of a "Romance" option, despite what any player or popular opinion may be. That's the difference here. While a player's opinion or popular opinion is just that - an opinion - as the IP owner, BioWare's statements override any such opinions. As such, the list posted above based on what is considered a "Romance option" is what is meant, and is the final authority on the topic.

          Continued debate on this topic is useless. I have provided the authoritative list on what is considered a Romance Option, especially for the purposes of this event.

          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 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:

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