Can you track most of this on the PC version? All my characters are on the PS3 and I could barely be bothered trying to remember all my choices I made with each character. I know I'll be going with Noble Warrior Dwarf origin guy, who I played to be homo with Zevran, was honourable but still some questionable choices.

Wait..... there's importing in this game? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

So ummmm, is there a game Save database anywhere Mass Effect style? I had no Idea that there was importing. I purchased the 360 version of Origins and I preordered the Signature edition on PC of DA2

I share the pain. With so many characters and a dozen multiples saves with them for Origins, Awakening, Golems of Amgarrak and Witch Hunt... suffice to say, my Dragon Age save files are an unwieldy mess. 
Edited by Tennmuerti

In the end it will likely affect very little considering that ME1-ME2 was a direct sequel and story continuation. Plus the import feature was highly hyped. Even with these factors the import of the game did very little, with biggest difference being Wrex.  
DA2 is not even a direct sequel and not even taking place in the same part of the world, as well as Bioware not touting the import much this time around.
It is logical to assume the effect of the import will be negligible with maybe only the biggest decisions make any difference at all, with even those being 1-3 lines of dialogue.

I have four separate versions of my character who are accessed from "switching characters." My end of Origins version, end of Awakening, end of Golems and end of Witch Hunt. Do the console Dragon Age Origins just have a giant list of saves? I hope not, that would suck.

It does, and yes... it does. As such it restricts you to create very few characters aswell, since each new save with awakening/witch hunt ect. counts as another ''character'', with only 10 ''characters'' maximum. =/
Posted by Wuddel

Oh man, also Awakening Spoilers in here (which is still waiting for me on my hard drive). I do not have my save anymore since I got a new PC, and did not bother to transfer anything. I will just choose one of the pre-made. One was pretty similar to what I did I think.

@Abyssfull: You have my sympathy.

Small though they may be, I wouldn't have it any other way. I wouldn't care about making the choices in the first place otherwise.
Posted by MikeFightNight

As I just went through origins and am now going through awakening in preperation for DA 2. here were my choices. 
 
 
Origins Story   
Felix The Human Rouge Nobleman
Love interest Morrigan 
Dalish vs Werewolves
- Sided with Zathrian , killing the Lady of the Forest and the werewolves. Then killied Zathrian after so that Lanaya would become the new keeper.  Recruited Dalish. 
Bhelen vs Harrowmont - Kept the anvil, saved Branka, put Harrowmont on the throne. Recruited the Dwarves. 
Mages vs Templars - Cleared the tower out of the blood mages and abominations, killed Wynne at start of mission because she didn't like that I agreed with Morrigian. Recruited the Templars.
Ashes and Dragon - Slaughtered the cult, killed the High Dragon, kept the ashes pure 
Connor, Demon and Arl Eamon - Did not get involved with protecting Redcliff.  After I returned and infiltrated the castle I coudln't rely on the circle of Magi for help so I had to use Jowan and his blood magic to sacrfice Lady Isolde in order to save Connor. Sent Morrigian in who killed the demon.  Let Arl Eamon send Jowan to be hanged. 
Landsmeet and Ritual - Let Alistar kill Loghain, put Quuen Anora on the throne and married her. Boned Morrigan for her crazy ritual . After all was said and done Anora asked me what my first wish as King was.  I replied to strip the Howe's of their status and investigate them to see who could be directly connected for slaughtiering my family.   
Characters - Recruited only Alistar Leliana Morrigan Shale and Oghren, did the missions for Morrigan, Oghren, Alistar only.  Left Sten to die in his cage, woke Zevran up and killed him.     
 
I'll get back to you on DA A.

" Can you track most of this on the PC version?"

Wait, PS3 players can't? PC version logs every single event online. I can check my entire 80+ hour career through the BioWare character profile (like my character Ariel).
 
In short, I played a Human Female Warrior and made almost all the same decisions as the OP. I was a lady so I ended up being the queen of Ferelden with Alistair. Shale should have been my royal pet but she decided to become squishy again. I completed all the side quests and did the personal quest for all my party members.
 
Still need to play Awakening and Witch Hunt, but I burnt out on Origins after taking my sweet time reading through all those romantic letters and codex entries. Seriously, 86 hours...I could've learned a language in that time :(

You know all this importing stuff, it's actually gonna make import the 'evil' version to play as a good guy. 
 
And my 'good' world save is going to be for my bad guy.

Posted by Gabriel

Will awakening count? Because I haven't bought it yet.

Edited by dagas

My first character. 
 
Female City Elf. She hated humans after what they did to her husband (in the origin story) and was all evil and stuff in the early parts of the game. Very angry character. Then when she fell in love with Leliana she slowly lost more and more of her anger. She didn't become all saint like, but she doesn't hate humans anymore. She still fights for elven rights and her request from the new Queen of Fereldan (the request you get at the end of the game after saving Ferelden) was that elves should have more rights. I'd say she is fairly neutral. 
 
Unlike most RPG's I never decided beforehand that I was going to be evil or good. I just let the story influence the character as I thought it would influence her. 
 
My second character 
 (a mage called Khan with evil Spock beard) is more of a classic evil guy. Believes he is better than everyone else and the only thing he cares about is Morrigan who he is obsessed with. I wouldn't call it love, it's more that he want her to be his. He has no regard for anyone else, not even their child. 
 
Third 
My human noble guy was pissed off about his parents being killed and swore to take revenge. To other people he behaves like the nobleman he is and treat them well, but he had no mercy for Rendon Howe and his family. He married Queen Anora to become king which was his ambition all along. 
 
Fourth 
I also have a female dwarf who fell in love with Alistair, she is probably the closest character I have to a "lawful good" character. Her life ended as she sacrificed herself to save Fereldan.

Kinda hoping the DLC won't have any major carry over, what with me not having any of it...

Posted by kingzetta

I really doubt the DLC will carry over, because some them don't even save after clearing them.

Edited by NinjaHunter

I made a lot of the same choices you did. 

Origins Story

Dalish vs Werewolves - Zathrian ended the curse, killing himself and the Lady of the Forest, turning the werewolves back to humans. Recruited the Dalish. 
Bhelen vs Harrowmont - Destroyed the anvil, killed Branka, put Harrowmont on the throne. Recruited the Dwarves.
Mages vs Templars - Cleared the tower out of the blood mages and abominations, protected innocent mages (Wynne recruitment), saved Irving. Recruited the Mages  
Ashes and Dragon - slaughtered the cult, killed the High Dragon, kept the ashes pure
Connor, Demon and Arl Eamon - Isolde sacrificed, sent morrigan into the fade.
Landsmeet and Ritual - Killed Loghain, Alistair and Anora are married. Did the Ritual with my GF Morrigan who was sad to leave.  
Characters - Recruited everyone, did the missions for everyone except Sten. 
 

Awakening Story

Fully upgraded Vigil's Keep, saved Amaranthine. Proclaimed a hero. 
Alligned with The Architect against The Mother. 
Anders and Nathaniel survived, stayed with the Wardens for a while and left. 
Justice was killed 
Vellena disappeared into the Deep Roads when she thought she saw her sister. 
  

Witch Hunt Story

Went into the mirror with Morrigan.
Posted by FLStyle
@MarkWahlberg: @kingzetta: Awakening might do, Golems didn't have anything I'm aware of that will pass over and Witch Hunt will at some point in 3 if not 2. Like Mass Effect 3 is taking relationship stuff from 1 and 2 over to 3.
 
@NinjaHunter: I attempted making Anora and Alistair marry but was met by a brick wall, not sure what I was meant to do past their refusals.
 
I'm currently playing a human noble through Awakening after completing Origins, I'll post my choices from that play-through once I'm done with Witch hunt.
Posted by NinjaHunter
@FLStyle: I think you have to convince them before the the lands meet and make sure you kill Logain and not have Alistair kill him. At least that's what I did.
Posted by Wrighteous86

My character sacrificed himself, and I didn't force Alistair to take the throne he didn't want.  When I played Awakening, Alistair was king and Oghren didn't seem to recognize Wynne. Apparently my ending didn't import to the expansion pack, maybe because I "died" at the end?
 
So I don't expect my choices to transfer to the sequel, either.  Which really pisses me off.  If they make any kind of difference, I'll probably replay DA1 and make a choice I don't want just so my save goes through.
 
Did anyone sacrifice themselves and have their ending transfer to new content?

Edited by FLStyle
@NinjaHunter: Ahhh, I let Alistair kill Loghain for losing Duncan, that must've been it. It makes sense now, of course Anora wouldn't marry the man who murdered her father.
 
@Wrighteous86: The only thing you can transfer your Origins save into if you sacrificed yourself is DAII I believe, I don't know if you can load the Origins Sacrifice save into an Awakening game in which you play as the Orlesian Warden-Commander. I'd look it into if I were you before March. In fact I might play another playthrough in which I do sacrifice my warden and see for myself.

Combat

Name: Melcene  
Level: 21
Race: Female Human     
Origin: Mage
Class: Mage
Specialisations: Blood Mage, Diabolist (can't tell what other ones I had)
GF/BF: Alistaire 
 

Dalish vs Werewolves -   At the urging of the Lady of the Forest, Melcene persuaded Zathrian to give up his own life, returning the werewolves to their human forms and saving the elves who had been inflicted with the curse. 
Bhelen vs Harrowmont -   His promise to King Endrin to keep Bhelen off the throne was upheld by the intervention of one Paragon and the Grey Warden Melcene. Harrowmont was named king by the Assembly, ending the internal strife in Orzammar.
Mages vs Templars -   Sided with the mages in "Broken Circle" 
Ashes and Dragon - Slaughtered the cult, killed the High Dragon, kept the ashes pure
Connor, Demon and Arl Eamon -   The Circle of Magi were finally called in, almost too late, and Connor was freed from the demon's power, though the damage to Redcliffe was severe.  
Landsmeet and Ritual - Loghain was defeated in a duel at the Landsmeet, put Alistair on the throne and Anora in a tower. Had Alistaire do the Ritual with Morrigan. Continued on working with the Grey Wardens while being Alistaire's concubine or whatever the hell I was because mages weren't allowed to be king/queen.
 
Characters - Recruited everyone and did all missions.
Edited by Wrighteous86
@FLStyle: Yeah, I played as the Orlesian Warden in Awakening, and I think that was just regarded as a "blank slate".  I could've transferred my sacrificed Warden, but I wanted his death to stay permanent along with his choices, and didn't have that option.
 
I suppose I'll just transfer my Awakening save for my Orlesian  Warden (if that's an option) and come up with some kind of rationalization for why Alistair became king and etc. in my head.  Anora was forced off the throne or something, I told myself, lol.

@melcene: Nice job, let me know if you try Awakening/Golems/Witch Hunt.

Yup, that's the way to do it.
Edited by babblinmule

I went back and did a proper 'true/canon' character or world to import into DA2.
 
Female elf mage
Specialisations - Spirit healer, blood mage, keeper
 
Dalish vs Werewolves - Sided with Zathrian and destroyed the curse because my character was a good, racist elf.
Bhelen vs Harrowmont - Alistair decapitated Branka, blew up the anvil and threw Harrowmont on the throne - nearby severely weakening the dwarves.
Mages vs Templars - Saved the tower and the mages. Big happy ending. 
Ashes and Dragon - Destroyed the cult, brutally murdered 'Andraste', and kept the ashes pure.
Connor, Demon and Arl Eamon - Saved them all by summoning the mages. Spared Jowan.
Landsmeet and Ritual - Saved Loghain, forced Alistair to marry Anora (Alistair was my love interest for some reason, so that was the end of that relationship), and made Loghain do the ritual.
Characters - Recruited everyone I possibly could.
Epilogue - Granted dominion of the mages tower to the mages and went to rebuild the grey wardens.
 
Awakening
Fully upgraded the keep, everyone survived.
Sided with the architect and killed the mother.

Witch Hunt
Left Morrigan to her fate as my character's best friend walked through the mirror. I then like to think that my warden left Ferelden to find adventure in other lands since she has no reason to stay now that the grey wardens were rebuilt. Possibly she left for the quanari lands like she told Sten long ago.
