The annual fall rush might be winding down, but there are at least two highly anticipated games still left for 2014: Telltale Games’ takes on the Borderlands and Game of Thrones franchises. And while gamers have gotten already gotten a pretty good look at Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale’s been a lot cagier when it comes to releasing details on Game of Thrones: Iron from Ice.
Here’s what gamers do know: Game of Thrones will be six episodes long and is set during the third and fourth seasons of HBO’s hit television show. Players will control five different characters from House Forrester, but characters from the show – voiced by their original actors – will show up as well.
Unfortunately, Game of Thrones is a huge story. While Telltale’s game looks like it’ll be suitably epic, many popular characters likely won’t appear. One possible cut? The Breaker of Chains and perennial cosplay favorite Daenerys Targaryen.
If Dany doesn’t show up, it’d only make sense: Telltale’s Game of Thrones looks like it’s primarily set in Westeros, while Daenerys’ adventures take place far across the Narrow Sea. However, enterprising gamers won’t have to go completely Khaleesi-less this winter; with a little bit of effort, players can create an exact replica of the Mother of Dragons in BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition.
It’s easy, too, thanks to a handy guide provided by imgur user “kill3rew0k.” Using almost forty screengrabs, kill3rew0k shows exactly how to recreate Daenerys in Dragon Age: Inquisition’s character editor. Kill3rew0k shares every single slider and color setting, from the size of Dany’s ears to her arched, off-color eyebrows. There are even two eye colors: one that matches Emelia Clarke’s stunning blues, and a purple-tinted shade that’s closer to George R. R. Martin’s original description of the character.
It’s not a perfect recreation, of course. For one, while Dragon Age: Inquisition has fairly robust character creation tools, Daenerys’ distinct hairstyle isn’t available. The Inquisition character’s armor is a lot more functional than the flowing robes and midriff-baring leather that Daenerys sports on television. Finally – and most importantly – as cool as it would be, Dragon Age: Inquisition does not let characters cart around a gaggle of baby dragons.
Daenerys isn’t the only Game of Thrones character that’s appeared in Dragon Age: Inqusition: pictures of a pretty decent Jamie Lannister are also making the rounds. These recreations are a strong testament to both the versatility of Iniquisition’s editor, as well as the passion of Game of Thrones fans. These characters look good, too; as far as accuracy goes, Telltale’s got some high standards to meet when their official version of Westeros arrives sometime this December.
