Can someone confirm something for me about Dragon Age? I could swear when the concept behind the game first came out, they talked very specifically about a more "realistic" setting than D&D, and a different kind of magic system which made more sense physically, and especially that there would be no resurrection under any circumstances because it just didn't make sense.

Then a few weeks ago I read that no party NPC's could die, a la NWN2 they could only be knocked out. I HATE HATE HATE those kinds of arbitrary restrictions.

I always felt in NWN2, despite being the "Chosen One" (a concept I'm sure will still be fresh for another 20 or 30 years), that the game was more about the NPC's, like I was tagging along in their quite interesting and adventurous lives. In fact, if you took away the party members' quests I doubt you could even call it a game.
