"The land of Thedas is in rough shape. The mages have risen up and are fighting a full blown rebellion against the Templars. The Chantry is falling apart, and its beloved leader (along with many among the upper levels of the hierarchy) is killed in a magic-fueled bombing during a peace accord, causing rifts to appear between the physical world and the Fade. This is the state of things as you step into the role of your new hero in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Being that you're the only person in the world that can close the rifts, it becomes your responsibility to grow the Inquisition from a small band of outcasts to a power to be reckoned with. With it, you bring order to the land and begin to reshape the world to however you see fit."
