Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne is not an epic quest about six medieval adventurers searching for a toilet, but rather a prequel novel based on BioWare's upcoming Dragon Age: Origins PC Game. The book was written by David Gaider, who also worked on BioWare hits Baldur's Gate 2, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Neverwinter Knights. Here's a brief description from the official site:
If that riveting description has you all fired up, then go ahead and download the first chapter of the book in PDF format. Everyone else will have to wait until March 3, 2009 for the Dragon Age saga to begin! Remember, the PC version is due out in late March, while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are slated for year end. Hit the jump for more musings on Dragon Age, Drizzt Do'Urden, toilets, and being a BioWare fanboy.
I'm definitely going to read the book when it comes out. I'm a huge BioWare mark (beat Baldur's Gate eight times and Baldur's Gate 2 five times) and I'm super psyched for Dragon Age. I also enjoy some fantasy books -- hell, I still enjoy R.A. Salvatore'sDrizzt stuff and he's written the same book like -- eight times. I do have to wonder about David Gaider though. The Stolen Throne? The Throne of Bhaal? Me thinks someone has a fascination with toilets!
Are you guys going to check out the book? Are you even interested in Dragon Age? Or has it been too long since BioWare has made an original PC game?
