Anonymous said: In the Raptr QnA, Mark Darrah said that he THINKS Anders is dead in the Bioware canon. Can you confirm that?
Your idea of canon and Mark Darrah’s may be different.
Mark’s undoubtedly refers to the “default” state of the game if you do not import any world state via the DA Keep. The default settings always set things up so there is no chance of a character returning who you may have never met and thus have no vested interest in metting, or ongoing plots surfacing that you may never have played and thus have no vested interest in seeing resolved.
Thus the default has things like: the Warden did the Ultimate Sacrifice in DAO. There is no Old God Baby. Anders is dead. Etc.
If that’s not the state you want the world to begin in for DAI, then use the DA Keep to set your world state as you please. The default does not, however, affect anything outside of that, and is not, say, the world state we use for comics or novels or anything like that.
