Welcome to Unbound! We are a literate to advanced Dragon Age roleplay that focuses on the events post-Trespasser, while also following the timelines of the Warden, Champion, and Inquisitor. You can review the http://unbound.b1.jcink.com/index.php?showtopic=25 to see exactly where we are in our timeline and the major decisions and dates of the other three timelines.
In September 2017, Unbound celebrated it's 5 year anniversary. We know that it can seem overwhelming to join a board with as much lore and experience as ours, so we've put together this guide to help you get started. Of course, if you have any questions you can always reach out to the staff via PM, Discord, or the guest-friendly Questions forum as well.
getting up to speedThe world of Thedas in which Unbound takes place comes from the lore of Dragon Age. While having played the games is not required, the best place to get started on Unbound is to familiarize yourself with our rules. If you have played the games and have a good grasp on how the world of Thedas works not all of this reading is required, but if you haven't we recommend you read through the information provided to help you understand the world of Thedas. Or go and play the games themselves, they're amazing!
