There are two sets of slides for the Tower of Ishal: During the early game where the tower is mostly intact, and during the Return to Ostagar DLC. We have also included official walkthroughs demonstrating Dragon Age:Origins gameplay, starting from the exterior approach to the Tower and into the Tower itself.









The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Imperial City - Prison and Secret Passage


Fantasy game art from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The Imperial Prison, secret passage, and incidental tunnels and caves are part of the tutorial quest "Escape from Prison".



Oblivion adds a lot of ambient light to underground locations where the would reasonably not be any. While this is a great convenience for gameplay and to keep the action going, it is also rather unrealistic. There are various mods that remove these additional lights or dim existing ones. The slideshow on this page has Oblivion in normal lighting and screenshots at the end where the same location is shown with the Darker Dungeons and Nights Mod Pack.

The Ruins of Ostagar is where a human army prepares to hold back a massive incursion of Darkspawn, and where the story of Dragon Age: Origins properly begins after the Warden's origin story.

There are four sets of screenshots: (1) During the afternoon when the Warden first arrives. (2) In the evening when the Warden returns from a task in the Korcari Wilds. (3) One once the Darkspawn have attacked and the Warden has access to the Tower of Ishal, formerly closed off. (4) Snow-covered when the Warden returns to the battlefield in the Return to Ostagar DLC.

Dragon Age Origins - Ruined Temple

Collapsed sections in the Ruined Temple force detours into a system of caves with small dragons and dragon cultists that finally leads up to the upper temple and out onto the top of a mountain. From there it is a short walk to the resting place of the Urn of Sacred Ashes, within a test of worthiness called The Gauntlet.






At the mountaintop, it is possible to force an encounter with the High Dragon worshipped by the dragon cultists. A coordinated effort with extensive help from mages can handle this encounter quite easily even on Dragon Age's "Nightmare Difficulty" and with limited resources. We have included a video showing how difficult a High Dragon is against a single character forced to fight in hand-to-hand range. The character is a Warrior specializing in two-handed melee weapons and with the Champion and Berserker specializations; set on the default Aggressive Scrapper AI and no other player interaction. The immortality cheat was activated from the console for this demonstration. It ends with the special death animation for High Dragons when killed by hand-to-hand combat (at around 6:55 into the video).

Another High Dragon can be fought at Flemeth's Hut in the Korcari Wilds, but in that battle the dragon does not move from its starting location. On the wide battlefield of the mountaintop, a High Dragon can fly to reposition and pursue higher-priority targets.



The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Leyawiin
