When I first played DAI I (obviously) played an elf, and I just couldn't get over how weird it looked when she crossed her arms. But hey, I thought, it's probably because it's a pose adapted for all of the races. I'm sure this holding your arms all high up and out from your body makes sense on the beefcake qunari.
Then I played a qunari and it was the same unfortunate pose.
I have questions.

One of better suprises in PoE Deadfire was that you could choose a pose to stand in :D

Honestly I didn't really notice the way my character is standing in DAI, what remember though is for some reason being bothered by the way they are sitting on that damn throne.

You're the Inquisitor! Powerful enough to bend nations to your will! Saving Empresses and Slaying Magisters and fighting demons and judging people all day... If you went for a less pompous pose people might forget who you are.

No no, Varric has it right! The IQ is a miracle worker, hence they are kind of a genie, right?

"an impatient genie waiting for you to choose your second wish" heehee, that's a good one! xD

Works better for a melee type class in a tin can. With a small elf/halfelf mage it doesn't work as well when you aren't armored and are the bleeding type who would rush to the back of the group if caught in cqc.

And third wish, you grant the first two of three wishes as they imagine a good genie would and grant the third wish in a way that is memorable and hard to fix without an unwish wish.

@wildmageguy: I always thought you do the first wish in a slightly annoying way, really screw up the second one and then troll the guy until he wishes for something not thought through like 'I wish none of this ever happened'.
But maybe I'm a bad genie xD

@mamiser: Aw man, I still haven't bought PoE Deadfire, despite liking PoE AND being a critical role nerd, but that sounds great. I mean, I loved that I could choose between voices in DAI, so being able to choose body language as well would have really been super.

@Broseidon: You are right, but clearly this needs to be improved upon! From here on, I demand to be carried everywhere by the burliest companions available (that is to say, Cassandra and Iron Bull) on a golden throne. I expect bards to play a wide range of songs honoring my greatness as I enter rooms, to ensure that all understand that they are truly honored to be in the presence of the great Inquisitor.

@Shadeless: A miracle worker, trapped in a position of power, constantly forced to do things for others that considering their power should be beneath them... yeah that sounds about right.

@wildmageguy: Yeah but my qunari warrior still looks silly when she crosses her arms. I don't know about you, but when I cross my arms, I rest them against my stomach, you know?
If I had three wishes for DAI one of them would 100% be to be able to play the game on my laptop that had the lightning and texture look nice. I'm replaying it over the holidays and the metal hair kills me.

@Shadeless: Sounds to me like you're the standard fare of genies, as far as folk tales go ;)

No, sort of like if you are a mage and you tell someone don't mess with me or it will be your last mistake, acting like a tough guy. Then you run to the back of the group to attack them at range while Viconia, Fenris, Eder, or Ifan runs in front lines and tanks them. Now that is the true experience of a mage.
