About this mod

Adds an additional cutscene to the end of the Dalish Elf origin that plays just before the vanilla farewell scene of Mahariel leaving with Duncan. It attempts to show Clan Sabrae and Mahariel mourning the loss of Tamlen, allowing our Warden to express more raw emotion over leaving their clan and (for once) over what happened to their best friend.

My apologies for the stuttering in the below video.
I re-watched it recently and saw how bad it was.
It should not stutter in your game or maybe you have that issue too sometimes in cutscenes.
(I blame it on the Blight, not some boring technical, memory, and game engine related nonsense)

It appears DAO was being difficult that day and Maker only knows why I accepted that quality of a recording to upload to my YouTube
...we'll blame it on exhaustion.
Or Fen'Harel.

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 Dalish Elf origin-Tamlen storyline.
This part adds a cutscene that plays before the vanilla farewell scene of Mahariel leaving the Dalish camp with Duncan.
It attempts to show the clan and Mahariel mourning the loss of Tamlen.
I also feel that it allows Mahariel to show more raw emotion over the fact that she/he is leaving their clan, 
for an unknown human world, no small thing among the Dalish.

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.


The scene will be triggered after 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.


I was inspired to make this mod because of my ongoing disappointment that at the end of the Dalish Elf origin there is 
no scene showing the funeral for Tamlen that the Warden mentions to Duncan 
no true showing of emotion from our Mahariel over their very significant losses  

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 with my mod, please leave a detailed message or send me a pm and I will help you however I can.
