Scroll down half way the forum page and you will find the link. The information contained within the manual seen pretty scant to me.

Thank you for posting it. Seems about what I'd expect nowadays - general information on how to play the game, and that's about it. It's been ages since I read a manual that contained lots of lore and so on. I really enjoyed such manuals, and always looked forward to reading them, but I guess those times are long gone.

What we used to call 'manual' for RPGs are now called 'Prima strategy guide' and cost an extra $15-$20

I don't feel that way - I'm not looking for clues on how to play the game. What I want is more in-depth lore, and that is usually not offered anywhere. The closest you get nowadays is online on fan based wikis and similar.

Well in this instance there an actual book, which presumably has loads of background in it!

The Stolen Throne (Dragon Age) (Paperback)

The book is not free, so that's irrelevant.

We're talking about what's provided in the manual.

But I got used to that ages ago, since it's been years and years since the standard changed.

Neverwinter 2 was probably the last RPG game I've seen with a really big manual. (X3: Terran Conflict's manual is over 100 pages, too, but it's no RPG.)
