Nope, even then you can still import your character. Just pretend it didn't happen.

You are able to roam the lands and complete certain side quests after beating the game, but it's kind of a hollow experience.  They allow you to do this so that people would not need to start the game over when dlc came out.

No. Just because someone decided to use themselves to kill the dragon, thats why they cant use their character in the exp pack? To not use your character that you put time in and build him up from ground on, just beacuse of a single choice... that's retarded.

@Begemot: Ever heard of spoiler tags. Be more careful in what you say.

****SPOILERS AHEAD (Couldnt get the spoiler thing to work properly)****
 
@Teran:  
 
First of all, I used Morrigan's option. And yea, it was obvious you were gonna die if you decided to kill the dragon yourself, but seriously -- get over your role playing ass. If someone wasted their time on a character in the first game, they should be able to use it in the expansion pack. It's simple as that (That's even how the developers phrased it when they said why they allowed dead characters to be used). I don't get why people like you are all into realism; like, really, gameplay comes first. Again, get over your role playing dreams.

It's a long ass game so you should have plenty of time to complete all of the quests.

@Begemot:  
 
If you want to use spoiler tags, type out what you want to say first, then highlight all the text, and then click on the red icon with the yellow explanation point inside of it up on the bard with the bold/italics/underline options.

*SPOILERS*

*BIG SIGH HERE*
Dude. Let it go.  If you dont want to resurrect your dead character in the expansion pack, then don't do it. It's that simple, I don't understand why you're trying to push the idea that others shouldnt do it. If they want to continue the story with the character they used and build, then let them.
 
You remind me of those religious freaks who push their beliefs onto others.
 
Also, take some lawyer classes or something. It looks like you're trying to hard to make a case out of this.

No. You can't even travel to the different places, unless you bought some of the DLC. Otherwise you're literally trapped in your camp. Though if you had Morrigan around that isn't so bad. ;P

@Begemot:   I told you how to use the spoiler box, why don't you try using it correctly this time.... or are you embarrassed that you had to be told?  Don't worry about it, most people do the first time.
 
 
Lastly, I remind you of religious freaks who push their beliefs onto others?  Really?  Because in case you hadn't noticed, you're the one pushing for change, not me.  I know it's hard to keep your thoughts straight bouncing up and down in your chair as you type each of your 'clever' insults, but next time you accuse someone of trying to force their beliefs on someone else, make sure they actually are the ones pushing for change, otherwise you just look foolish and uneducated.
 
I'm perfectly happy with the way the game currently is, they don't need to change a thing.  I played through once, importing my dead character into the game and enjoyed it thoroughly.  I played through once importing a living character into the game and enjoyed it thoroughly.

derailed thread much?

@Teran: 
I clicked the spoilers tag, and it didnt work before, hence why I said, it didn't work for me. Now assume more, I'm sure you wont look foolish.
 
Also, I'm the one pushing for the change? This is where I find out you're a dumbass. Reread the thread, and realize that I said not being able to use your characters in the expansion pack is silly.
 
I'm done replying to this stubborn moronic goat. Take to PMs if you want to continue your senseless arguments.

ITT we talk about the fucking ending when the OP says he just got the game, and fight about it.

Says the guy who can't get the spoiler tag to work even though he's been given clear instruction. 
 
My argument is concrete.  The game is the way it is, and I am defending that.  You're the one who has ridden in on your white horse, frothing at the mouth, demanding that they make the game for you and accusing anyone who disagrees of being comparable to a religious zealot.  I'm guessing you never learned the definition of irony.

Man, I really need to start reading entire threads before I post replies. 
 
I edited out my argument, I'm sick and tired of fighting with people on forums. 
 
@Skipper00, to answer your question, you cannot continue to play the game after you finish it. 
However, you can either continue your character or start as an Orlesian Warden as long as you have the expansion pack Awakening. Whether or not you can continue quests from the original game is beyond me, however. Hope I helped.
