I read The Stolen Throne novel quite a while back, as well as The Calling, and I will never understand why people are so fond of epilogues like this. Mother Ailis is... Loghain's sort of stepmom? And she's telling all this to a 12 year old Cailan? I just feel that there are some questions that need to be answered here, not least of all being "how does she know all of this?"

I also don't quite understand why people insist that they like Loghain better after reading The Stolen Throne. I did not feel like I learned anything new about him (but then I have recruited him and made a point to get to know him so I guess...) and he was an angry boy. I much prefer old grumpy pants of DA games an The Calling.

All unnoticed women in Thedas are bards, surely you know this.

Poor traumatised Cailan!

Plus in addition to the parental sex life trauma, Cailan acts more like six than twelve. Always figured he was a bit special.

Well, they did have to tie everything up without needing either another book, or doubling the size of The Stolen Throne.
But, I guess it could be said that Allis was told all of this by Maric.

@Norgrath: Correction: Everyone who is not specifically mentioned not to be a bard IS a bard. At least in Orlais. Fact.

@Guest: Oh I definitely see the logic behind tying it up like that, it's just that epilogues that implies that the story has been told by person X to person Y (especially if Y is very young) tend to rub me the wrong way. And lead to a lot of questions. Personally I would have opted for Loghain telling the story, or monologuing, but that might also be my poorly hidden favoritism showing.
