No idea what the “Dragon Age” games are, or what they’re all about, but apparently Felicia Day is writing and starring in a 6-episode web series for “Dragon Age II”, and since Felicia Day is one of those “must post” babes, so here’s your first look at her.
USA Today fills us in on the game:
Already well-known to video-game fans as the creator of Web comedy series The Guild about online game players, the actress has written and stars in a new Web series, Dragon Age: Redemption, based in the world of BioWare’s role-playing Dragon Age game franchise.
Day’s six-episode run, due to hit the Web this year, is set in Ferelden, the same fantasy land in which 2009′s Dragon Age: Origins and the upcoming sequel Dragon Age II play out. In the Tolkienesque sword-and-sorcery adventure game, several races join forces to combat a scourge called the Darkspawn (think of them as cousins to the orcs in The Lord of the Rings).
A peek at the Dragon Age II narrative shows Day wrote an original story line around a character for herself, Tallis, an Elven assassin.
“Tallis is headstrong, she fights dirty, and she has a really sarcastic sense of humor,” she says. “I wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world.”
Tallis goes on a quest to capture a renegade magician. Along the way, she gathers her own fellowship. “She can’t accomplish her mission alone, so finding allies is tricky,” Day says. “The success or failure of the mission will have a big impact on her future and her freedom.”
“Dragon Age II” the game hits stores March 8 for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac.
