This is a mod for the Dalish Elf Origin for both male and female elves.
It is one part of my ongoing project to fill in some of the holes of the vanilla Tamlen storyline.


This small part of my Tamlen project adds a cutscene that plays before the vanilla farewell scene of the (soon-to-be) Warden leaving the Dalish camp with Duncan.
The scene takes place in the camp, around the big bonfire, the same fire that Paivel recites his poem by.
I felt that it was an appropriate place for a small service.


Just for clarification- The fire you see is just the bonfire in the Dalish camp. It is not a funeral pyre.
As we all know, the Dalish do not burn their dead.
And our poor Tamlen's body has not been found so the clan can't bury him.


I was always disappointed that during the end of the Dalish Elf origin there was no scene showing the funeral for Tamlen that the Warden mentions to Duncan 
any show of emotion from our Wardens over their very significant loss.  
The vanilla goodbye also seemed rather lacking as there wasn't even a mention of Ashalle, who has been your guardian since you lost your parents. And she loves you very much.


So, this mod aims to fix that, extending the ending of the origin by adding an addition cutscene
before the vanilla farewell scene.

My new cutscene attempts to show the clan and the Warden mourning the loss of Tamlen.
It allows our hero to express some emotion (for once) over what happened to their best friend.


My aim was to make it lore-friendly and leave room for you to interpret as you see fit for your personal playing preference.


It will be triggered after you accept (or are conscripted into) your invitation to the Grey Wardens and Duncan asks if you're ready to leave. It does not matter which response you choose as each response will trigger it.
The Keeper will say her usual "come, da'len" line and then the scene should play.
Once my scene concludes, the vanilla farewell scene will be triggered and you will leave with Duncan for Ostagar like normal.

Download zip file, unzip.
Use WinRAR or 7z, or whatever you normally use to unzip files.
Then move the entire folder into your override folder.


If you cannot unzip the file, or it gives you an error, try re-downloading it and using different software to unzip.
If you're still having problems, send me a pm.

This scene edits one significant file of the Dalish Elf Origin:

bed100cr_duncan.dlb and dlg

Any mod that edits this file will conflict with mine.
However, you can still make it compatible with those other mods by manually deleting
any other copies of "bed100cr_duncan.dlb and bed100cr_duncan.dlg" in your override folder.


Mods that address bugs, change dialogue files, or edit multiple game core resources
often leave you the option to delete files and use only the ones you want.
(Like Improved Atmosphere and the multiple bug fixing mods on Nexus)
If so, simply delete those files as instructed above, allowing mine to override everything.


If you have any issues, please leave a detailed message and I will help you however I can.
