Dude....What did I do?(MORRIGAN PLOT SPOILER WARNING!!!)

#1 Posted by Generic_Ninja (131 posts) -

So I just finished Dragon Age Origins being mostly a nice person and there was one thing that made me just go...PICKED THE WRONG WOMAN TO SEX UP! 
 
The whole morrigan plot line I thought was really well done especially when it had to involve killing her mother which transforms into a giant dragon....But what really made me go Holy Shit! Was when Morrigan said this. 
 
"We will Birth a child which will then become a becon for when you destroy the Archdemon, Rather then a grey warden be sacraficed the child will the be infused with the old god powers and after this you will never see me nor the child ever again..." Im sitting at my computer going...Wh-what! Of course I chose the better option and said no to that idea and then of course she walked out on me...if anyone knows what actually happens at that point I would really like to know because thats just to crazy and to messed up for me.

Every time any of you guys mention the name Morrigan...
 
I imagine Morrigan from Dark Stalkers being in DA:O and get confused.
 
:P

@rohanspear345:
I used Wayne pretty much for the whole playthrough once I got her since she was the most incredible healer you could get and I used morrigan mostly for alot of Lightning bassed spells since I thought the shapeshifting sucked.

Nothing really happens if you choose the other option.  Morrigan just stays playable through the end of the game, then in the epilogue they have something saying that someone fitting her description was seen in the wilderness and that she may have been with child.  Then the game opens back up to you (after the credits and stuff), and she's back but doesn't acknowledge any romantic relationship you may have had.

Yeah... I wasn't a big fan of the ending I got.
 
I loved Morrigan. She was at Love +100. She offers a ritual but then I can never see her again no matter what I do? I declined the offer, hoping she would change her mind... but she doesn't.
 
Then it comes down to Alistair or me dying and I didn't want Alistair to die 'cause he was awesome.
 
In addition to having Morrigan walk out on me and then dying to save the world, then I found out that almost my entire party who I did all their side quests and had +100 approval ratings were never heard from again in some text based epilogue.
 
I loved this game, but I almost feel cheated by the ending.

#7 Posted by SuperBuster (175 posts) -

When she came to me with the offer I flat-out refused her but the thing is, I still got the epilogue saying that Morrigan was headed west and she was pregnant. So what happened? Did she find some random guy after she left? Did she get my PC in his sleep? Did she get Alistair? If she got Alistair or me then why did I still die at the end? Maybe it has to do with Leliana's epilogue which states that she was going to meet her love (me) again. Maybe Morrigan actually did have my PC's child and I was only in a kind of pseudo-death. idk

Yea that really pissed me off when that dialogue came up. I told Morrigan she could could go fuck herself and that I should have killed her sooner and then she left, which made me mad because she was my CC. I couldn't see doing her ritual and getting her pregnant because if you do that then the Archdemon isn't dead, which means the blight never really ends. A Grey Warden has to die to stop it and that Grey Warden was me, because after making Allistar king I couldn't let him do it since I knew if he died everyone would blame me for his death. Anyway, in my game she didn't get to do the ritual or get pregnant and went west to Orlias where she implanted herself in the Orlisian inner royal court thing. As I understand it she goes to Orlias regardless of what you choose to do and it leads me to believe that she will return as a villian in Dragon Age 2.

mmm i wanna c what happens now if i let alistair die now that i made him king. maybe i can finally RULE!!! not as a the queens biatch

That so does not apply to this game, I played a guy and kept the company of 3 lovely ladies. Well, Alistair and 2 lovely ladies. Ok, 1 lovely lady and 1 kinky lady. On the topic: Yeah, too bad you can't have the happily ever after, eh? Maybe that's not so bad, it's still a great story and Morrigan is a great character.
 
PS: And to be fair... well, she warned you from the VERY START that you would get burned. :P
#13 Posted by ThePencil (390 posts) -

I was happy enough to have my Chaotic Good-like rogue/bard/duelist charecter lay with Miss Hawtness and complete the ritual with Morrigan, knowing that even after she would leave he would try to find her again (ala that oh so special ring and it's two way connection) 
 
I kinda balked at the idea of letting somone else lay with her, mainly as I'm a big fan of the Player Charecter X Morrigan romance plot , it was fun peeling through her stern exterior and getting to that innocent gooey centre.....Much like a Cadburys Creme egg.
 
 With the ending I ended up with it was generally inclined that my PC was following after Morrigan and their child, which seemed to set up a sequel rather nicely in my eyes.

well I too share the thought of looking at female ass for 50hrs, not male and I did play a woman.
but it does not really matter in dragon age, there is no female armor or sexy armor or anything. 
My point is in dragon age once my lady warrior put on her helmet in a fight the only way you could tell she was a lady was her voice
#15 Posted by Gabriel (4082 posts) -

I had Loghain at that point in my party and I felt dirty even thinking of her having to sleep with him, so I declined as sleeping with her contridicted the way I was playing.

#17 Edited by Aldrenar47 (78 posts) -

The Morrigan thing threw me off too, because I was also playing a nice guy who was romantically involved with her (I was determined to get my Warden some action and it was either her or Leliana, and Leliana was just too goody-two-shoes even for my character). But in the end, I decided to accept her offer because her dialogue throughout the game convinced me that she wasn't truly evil, just completely lacking empathy. 
 
I mean, she was raised in the woods where she was forbidden to come into contact with people because it could lead to her discovery as an unsanctioned mage. So when she does things like advocate the use of the Anvil in Orzammar, she only sees the benefit and doesn't consider how it would feel to have someone force you into being a rock monster... but if, at that point in the game, you threaten to use the anvil on her, she says something to the effect of "point taken" and backs down (I think she gives -1 disapproval or something).
 
If you ask her how she will raise the child, she also says that she will teach it to "respect where it came from" and that it will be free of the taint that creates Archdemons. This implies that she won't teach it to hate and kill everything, which doesn't seem to be Morrigan's desire either. She obviously wants to use it for something, though, and nobody knows exactly what. 
 
However, I think there may be a clue when it says that she goes to Orlais, because Orlais is the home of the Chantry, which she naturally hates as they impose on people's freedoms (specifically mages). Personally, I think she wants to use an Old God's power to destroy the Chantry, which I don't consider an evil thing. Templars are kind of dicks anyway- they should be hunting down maleficars only, not putting every mage they can find through a test where they kill you if you don't pass. 
 
You can also tell Morrigan that you vow to find her afterwards, and also say the same thing to Alistair when he asks you what you plan to do after you kill the Archdemon. She can't totally disappear, especially with the special connection ring, so maybe you can find her later and make sure she's not effing up your kid.
 
So I actually think I got the perfect ending, where pretty much everything good happens (Alistair and Queen whatshername rule together and unite the people, the one chick rules the elves who are now curse free, Bhelin expands rights for dwarven castless, no Grey Wardens die fighting the Archdemon, the ashes of Andraste are saf-- oops wait, forgot to go back and kill the High Dragon! Oh well) and there is a little bit of mystery in the child. I don't know about you guys, but at the end of my uh, ending, it says "but that was not all that the land of Ferelden heard from the Grey Warden"... sequel hint? I think it would be the best canon ending.

@warxsnake:  I'd normally agree, but no one has enough of an ass to make it matter in this game.
#19 Posted by Zereta (1370 posts) -

Yea, I got that thing as well and took it. It was mind blowing. I felt so disturbed about it though

#20 Posted by DazMoo (17 posts) -

now i know this thread was about endings... but maybe someone took a bit too literally.... that said i too was disappointed by the lack of badonkadonk  in the game...

#21 Posted by devilhorns (1 posts) -

im up to the part as i type right now where i have to choose. 
read all ur comments and theyre good as, but i have a feeling that its actually flemmeth still and this is how shes lived so long 
OORRR morrigan is trying to try wat flemmeth did and live on in the kids body when she dies, and since its half god or watever shell be heaps strong and might live forever. 
the suggestion of her coming back in DA 2 is definitely up for consideration
#22 Posted by Kearyb (1 posts) -

Ninja at the end after the game it tells u all this stuff that happenned to the characters and at the end of morrigans it says that she vannished etc. And she gone FOR NOW..... something along that lines u should read that stuff at the end it explains alot. But personally i think they are going to make an expansion where ur son or daughter is some big demon thing u have to kill or something along that lines. But that (for now) thing gives it away she will be back..

I know this is old post, but this is just stupid. DAO is RPG game which means ROLE playing. You like to play role of female being a male? Ok, whatever, but don't justify it with the desire to look at women a55es. You can just add female NPC if you're into looking at digital butts.

Banging Morrigan is ALWAYS the right choice.

#26 Posted by Wunder_ (1171 posts) -

I just finished the game with me sacrificing myself... I didn't have ties to Morrigan; I was thinking of it, but I was playing a good character with my entire party being the Lawful Good path... (Alistair, Leliana, Wynne, Shale at one point...) I was a human mage and I was really thinking of the repercussions of this, if something like a Mass Effect thing would happen... What the hell would become of the demon-child?! I took my chances that Riordan would kill the archdemon... When the cutscene played, I was sad. But I knew that this would be a better choice than a demon-spawn wandering around Thedas... 

#27 Posted by Atlas (2457 posts) -

Just play it again...and again, and again. That's certainly my plan.

#28 Posted by Niniel (1 posts) -

So my boyfriend is playing as a male warden, and I'm a female. He's ahead of me in the game and I am just wondering, how does this whole baby option work out if your warden is female? I don't care about spoilers at all, and I may not even finish the game, I just want to know. Has anyone else played as a woman and gotten to this point?

#29 Posted by natetodamax (19220 posts) -

My Dwarf Farquad was a good little Dwarf but I did the ritual with Morrigan. I still don't understand how that worked.

You're asked to convince Alister to take part, which makes for fun if your romancing Alister
#31 Posted by Ferginator4k (738 posts) -

Yeah that plotline was kinda intresting and i hope Morrigan returns at some point. Love her character.

#32 Posted by threeve (199 posts) -

I personally had no qualms with taking up Morrigan on her offer, and I let her know that I would be coming after her if she left.  The only regret I have for my character is making him a champion/templar instead of champion/reaver

#34 Posted by Lamashtu (255 posts) -

For my city elf rogue character (the only playthrough where I decided to go with Morrigan's plan) I had Alistar lay with Morrigan, still knowing full well what's really going through her head.  
 
On the plus side, I roleplayed my character and told her before the Denerim assault that I was going to track her down in a very stern voice and with a stone face, as well as telling Alistar that on my travels, I would be dedicated to hunting her down (with a wire-hanger if need be).

#36 Posted by HCGJadeHeart123 (44 posts) -

Morrigan was awesome! I declined the idea that she wanted to have a baby (to possibly sacrifice in my place) and she left!!!!!!!! She was basically the most powerful mage on my team, and I repeat, SHE LEFT!!!!!! Awwe well, I love the DAO story and I'm looking forward to Dragon Age Awakening.
#37 Edited by Lawrens (688 posts) -

I thought it was an awesome suggestion until the part where Morrigan told me "And I'll raise the baby myself somewhere far away" or along those lines, hell no, I rather die than letting her raise a kid, poor kid.

#38 Posted by Shaanyboi (1343 posts) -

Getting with Morrigan is one of the 4 endings.  If you slept with her, she'll stick with you for the final battle, and you'll get a separate achievement.  No one dies.  
 
Otherwise, she's gone, and either you, Alastair or Loghain has to die.

#41 Posted by SmacK1776 (21 posts) -

At the end of my DA:O playthru I knocked Morrigan up and she ran off with my baby all "Springer" like. Right before the end, when you can talk to everybody, i kept vowing that i'd search her out and continue our love story. 
 
My question is: 
Has anyone played the Awakening expansion? Is Morrigan mentioned in that? (sorry if somebody already covered this)

#42 Posted by irojer (1 posts) -

I made Morrigan shapeshift to a wolf and sleep with my Malabari war-dog, Goliath (since he's drinks plenty darkspawn blood, hes got the taint and is practically a warden). That way she could get preggers with his seed and their baby could take the Archdemon soul in the ritual. That way the Archdemon's sole could manifest itself as a truely wicked and awesome abomination and set up a sweet sequel.

I just played through DAO for the fourth time now just to look at it from every angle.

I've come to the conclusion that Morrigan is selfish and actually quite heartless and yes... evil. You see, if you picked up from her dialogue from the very beginning it seems Flemeth (Morrigan's mother) was setting Morrigan up to be the body she inhabited, she was sending her out to strengthen that body through experience. Flemeth was going to inhabit her daughters body as she had done many times before, the mother, just like the daughter, heartless/ cruel. You have to be blind not to see that Morrigan's interest is only one thing: Power; and you handing her her mother's Grimoire gave her just that- The ability to extend her life the same way her mother did.

What a perfect host and container for her to extend her life than that of a God-child, what powers would she be granted by her merger "inhabitation" of it? Not bad for a hillbilly backwoods witch with a cunning of 11.

Someone commented that the Templars where bad men that killed you if you failed a test. I guess they weren't paying attention, if a mage fails the test of the fade they become abominations right? They are just doing their job of protecting the poor innocent villagers and good folk that don't know how to handle undead armies and demon possessed mages...

Morrigan is a smexin on you though- that makes it all better! :P

So the last time I turned her down and didn't talk Allistar into being her donor either... But she says "I have to do what I have to..." and runs off to ... do something..

Here's something to think about:

Theres one more warden donor in the castle that night:

I see the practice of necromancy is still strong despite the recent laws.

But yeah, I agree with OP. That bit really took me by surprise and I was just sitting there, looking at the screen with my mouth open and trying to comprehend what the hell just happened.
