Steampunk AU — Thedas has evolved since the old ages, along with its technological advancements. Being born with magic is now a social stigma, mages are no longer powerful and feared, and the old arts are forgotten. Nobleman Garrett Hawke is about to marry to an influential Kirkwall family, but he now faces the fact that he possesses some of these ancient powers, and must seek help to control and hide his raw magic before the marriage plans crumble to dust. Rumors about a miraculous healer bring him to Darktown, but his journey is cut short when he becomes tangled in a struggle between technology, magic, politics and idealism. Kirkwall is facing impending doom as more and more magical events occur, and people can no longer rely on the things they know to fight back. Bringing back the knowledge of ancient times seems to be the last resort for all, but can anyone rise to the challenge and save the City of Chains?
