IS ANY BODY ELSE A LITTLE BIT CONCERNED AS TO WHY THE INQUISITOR IS ATTACKING A GREY WARDEN KEEP?
I know I already posted about this but…
I’m just saying that the organization call the Inquisition who, for all signs seem rather interested in ridding the world of evil, might be a bit concerned with the group that is literally infected with darkspawn taint.
It might be too meta, but I wonder if they’re going to address the organization’s title in the game. It just seems to me that Inquisition is a rather ominous name to give your group that is ostensibly trying to saving the world.
Hey Tumblr friends! I need your help!
I’m undertaking a new writing project, and I’m researching badass ladies of history. Heroes, Villains, Inventors, Thinkers, Warriors, Poets, Scholars, Rapscallions, Clerics, Leaders and Outlaws. Whatever ladies you got that shook things up and made a difference! Extra points if there is some historical insight into this person’s personal life and/or inner character and philosophy! No historical personage is too obscure OR too well-known, I just want your favorites, regardless of whether you think I am or am not already aware of them!
Cheers, and thanks friends!
Some personal favorite badass ladies of history:
Julie d’Aubigny, duelist, opera singer, serial seductress, and general-purpose badass.
Ada Lovelace, mathematician, metaphysician, and the first computer programmer.
Ching Shih, the pirate queen who defeated China with a fleet of thousands of junks, and happily retired.
Isabella Stewart Gardner, art collector, philanthropist, adventurer.
Grace Hopper, Navy Admiral and developer of compilers, which allowed for modern programming languages.
The Night Witches, Russian WWII bomber pilots who climbed outside their planes to restart them mid-flight after silent bombing runs.
Tomoe Gozen, female samurai with a penchant for beheading enemy commanders.
If you want a lot more, there’s an entire tumblr dedicated to them: http://badassfemalesinhistory.tumblr.com/
Good luck, and happy writing, Brennan!
Unfortunately there’s very little information on Google about this character and I haven’t looked for information in scholarly places but you may find Black Anna interesting. What information there is comes in relationship to her depiction by another heroic woman, ardent feminist and marxist printmaker Kathe Kollwitz. Here’s Linda Nochlin’s summary of Kollwitz’s print depicting Black Anna, “Losbruch” or “outbreak”:
The spectacle of the wild woman — woman unleashed, in a rage and definitely on top — has always aroused irritation, especially if the woman comes from the lower classes. In 1902, the German artist Käthe Kollwitz used this image to tell the story of Black Anna, the heroine of the 1524 uprising in which she led a band of peasants in an attack against the local establishment in a town called Heilbronn. Kollwitz, who was a feminist and a socialist, told a biographer she identified with Black Anna. In this etching, for the first time in art history an artist has created an image of excessive violence and feminine energy. Before this time, peasant women had traditionally been depicted as passive maternal or nurturing figures; an active lower-class figure was generally thought to be malevolent, even a witch. But in her figure of Black Anna, Kollwitz has transformed these negative values into positive ones: the dark force of the peasant woman becomes a harbinger of social progress. It is no accident that this image was created at the turn of the last century — the moment when women were beginning to claim their rights.
Maybe you’ll find both Kollwitz and her female revolutionary heroes useful for this project.
