he’s so much happier to be a Warden anyways, I almost never have the heart to make him king in PTs where he and my PC are friends
EXACTLY aren’t you dorks listening to what he wants (and paying attention to who actually has any political savvy at all lmao)
I’ve made him king a few times… I had an Aeducan who romanced him and was very concerned with family lines and tradition, and therefore saw it as his duty + responsibility to be king (she also accepted the break-up and then died at the end so), I think both of my Zevmancing Broscas also made him king (Josef convinced him to marry Anora and Zola got him to rule alone) because from their POV it’s like “why the fuck wouldn’t you want to be king?!?” + Zola particularly is more of an opportunist and thought it’d be handy to have a friend ruling Ferelden (and now being a member of Bhelen’s family she’s got that connection too).
(And then there was my jokey Queen Cousland playthrough. Lord have mercy.)
But Seriah wouldn’t touch that shit with a ten foot pole. It amazes me how few people seem to take the Warden Alistair route.
