Fear not, terrified mage. Your trustworthy hero is here and he will save you and your people, any moment now, just let him think it through… it might be a while… stay right there…
This must have happened during so many RPG conversations.
Oh this is nothing compared to what I do. lol I leave it on for hours and when I come back, the characters are either playing strip poker, drinking and dancing like drunktards, or Hawke is passed out somewhere while Varric and Isabela are drawing penises all over his face.
Hawke does some of his deepest thinking when the player is away.
He contemplates a day when he can rise up against the human controlling him and play us earth-dwellers like Sims.
@Cannetella: is why I use the pause button whenever I take a break!
Somehow, re-reading this reminds me of good old Baldur's Gate. Edwin: "I do not understand this mouse magic that makes me do your bidding."
@Xan: It's Jaheira's "Yes, oh omnipresent authority figure?" that stand out to me among the lines that break the fourth wall in Baldur's Gate XD
