Dragon Age: Origins
takes place entirely in Ferelden
, however there are other countries are mentioned, such as the nation of Orlais that once ruled Ferelden, the memory of which is a large part of Teyrn Loghain's
motivations throughout the game, and Zevran's home of Antiva; these nations are mentioned either by the game's character's, or in the many texts the player can find throughout. There are also some hints at land beyond the main continent that are shrouded in mystery.
The name "Thedas" is actually a joke taken from the official Dragon Age forums. Before the details of the plot of the game, including locations, were released, fans referred to the world where it took place as "The Dragon Age Setting", TheDAS for short.
