    (1) In-Game Items
    
    (1.01) Blood Dragon Armor
    
    Commissioned by an infamous Nevarran dragon hunter, this armor was crafted in
    a time when dragons had almost been hunted to extinction.  Infused with their
    blood, the armor gained notoriety after the hunter died at the hands of men
    rather than the dragons it was designed to protect him from.  When all four
    pieces of Blood Dragon Plate are equipped, the character gains a bonus to
    defense and armor.
    
    The code will also unlock use in BioWare's Mass Effect 2.
    
    Includes:
     - Blood Dragon Plate
         +6 Defense, +30 Health
     - Blood Dragon Plate Gauntlets
     - Blood Dragon Plate Boots
     - Blood Dragon Armor Set
         +3 Armor, +1 Defense, +1 Missile Deflection
     - Blood Dragon Plate Helmet
         +10 Health
    
    Placement: You'll receive the Blood Dragon Plate immediately, the Helmet,
    Gauntlets and Boots are available from Bodahn in the party camp.

     - Dragons Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition (PC)
    
    (1.02) Collector's Edition
    
    A collection of three special items exclusive to the Dragon Age: Origins
    Collector's Edition.
    
    Grimoire of the Frozen Wastes (Book)
    
    Far north of Orthland lies the Frozen Wastes.  In these pages are hundreds of
    harrowing tales describing how the barbarians survive in their icy homeland.
    The authors' hope their stories will help readers in their times of need.  Or
    at the least prove entertaining.
    
    Stats:
      Adds three attribute points
    
    Placement: You'll receive this item immediately.
    
    Bergen's Honor (Helmet)
    
    When the Grey Warden Bergen knew he was at the end of his life, he descended
    into the the Deep Roads joined by a full company of the Legion of the Dead.
    They slew hordes of darkspawn, clearing tunnels that had been lost for
    centuries.  When at last they fell, a lone dwarf brought back Bergen's helm,
    as well as his defiant and inspirational tale.
    
    This is a massive dragonbone helmet. So it's end-game warrior fare.  At a good
    price. Besides Corruption at the end of the game, it should be the best helm
    available.
    
    Stats:
      +2 Armour, +25 Physical Resistance, +6 Attack
    
    Placement: Available from Bodahn in the party camp.
    
    Final Reason (Staff)
    
    This staff was held by several senior master conjurers of the Circle Tower,
    passed down from old master to new.  Errant students learned to fear it, for
    when all other forms of discipline failed, the Final Reason would produce
    obedience at the cost of significant pain and discomfort.
    
    This is meant to be useable once the player is at 11+ level. It's price, like
    all the pre-order items, should be very reasonable. It's meant to be the best
    staff for the mid-levels of the game.
    
    Stats:
      +3 Damage, +10 Spellpower, +15% Fire Damage
    
    Placement: Available from Bodahn in the party camp.

     - Dragons Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition (PC)
    
    (1.03) Memory Band and Formari Tome (Ring)
    
    Memory Band
    
    Made by the Formari, these lyrium-infused rings are supposed to help
    apprentices retain their lessons.  They work rather well - too well, perhaps,
    as less capable students sometimes wear three or four per finger.
    
    Stats:
      +1% to gained XP
    
    Formari Tome
    
    Formari are known for a rigorous dedication to the pursuit of knowledge. This
    manual, one of the more popular Formari texts, contains a wide variety of
    insight into skills and knowledge.

    (1.04) Feral Wolf Charm (Amulet)
    
    Chasind hunters favour charms like this.  The hunters claim that they are
    enchanted on moonlit nights by scantily clad witches deep in the heart of the
    Korcari Wilds.  But perhaps that is just wishful thinking.

    (1.06) The Lion's Paw (Boots)
    
    Lady Rosamund, an infamous outlaw of the Korcari Wilds, wore these regal
    boots.  Through clever ambushes and surprising tactics, she spent decades
    preying on merchants and eluding the king's guards until one day she simply
    disappeared.  Some still brave the Wilds in search of her hidden hoard of
    treasure.

    (1.07) Guildmaster's Belt (Belt)
    
    The guilds of Denerim are despised by the peasants of Ferelden because the
    guildmasters grow fat off their labors.  Quite literally in the case of this
    belt's former owner, who could’ve stood to lose a pound or two.

    (1.08) Band of Fire (Ring)
    
    Magical fire is used with great care in the construction of these rings. After
    a few unfortunate incidents of singed eyebrows and burnt hair, there is some
    speculation that this is why the Formari often shave their heads.

    (1.09) The Wicked Oath (Ring)
    
    Countess Luciana of Antiva lived as a virtual prisoner in her husband’s castle
    until an elven slave offered her a way out.  The slave magically bound a small
    amount of the countess’s blood into a ring in return for a promise of freedom.
    The countess agreed, and the count was found stabbed soon afterwards, this
    ring lying beside him.  Neither Luciana nor the slave were seen again.

    (1.10) Mark of Vigilance (Amulet)
    
    Not all maleficar practice forbidden blood magic, but templars must constantly
    guard against the possibility that even an innocuous-seeming mage has delved
    into arts that permit him to control the minds of others.  The best mage-
    hunters are granted these valued amulets as rewards by the Divine.  They are
    often entombed alongside the templar when he dies.

    This old stone, set in a golden ring, has been an aid and companion to dozens
    of adventurers across innumerable years.  Its trip to Ferelden was long and

    There is a legend amongst the dwarves of the Legion of the Dead that, three
    centuries ago, a commander of the Legion came across the body of a legionnaire
    wearing a helmet inscribed with lyrium.  He took it, and died nobly... and
    then his body was found years later by another commander - and so forth, for
    generations.  The helmet is said to be a sign of an honorable death for the
    lucky dwarf who stumbles across it.

    Embri of Gwaren, an elven mage of limited talent who volunteered to become one

    (2.01) The Stone Prisoner
    
    Crafted by the ancient dwarves as their first line of defense against the
    darkspawn, the dread sentinels known as golems dwindled in number after the
    art of their creation was lost.  Shale, one of the few golems remaining, was

    to be the Grey Wardens' most effective weapon against the onslaught of the
    Blight.
    
    The darkspawn-infested village of Honnleath holds a secret: the forgotten
    stone figure at the town's heart is a powerful golem frozen in time.  Bound in

    (2.04) Return to Ostagar
    
    Your memories of the battle of Ostagar will haunt you for years to come. It
    laid waste to your order and claimed the lives of many great men and women.
    
    Now, there are rumors that a fellow survivor of the battle has escaped from
    captivity and is seeking the Grey Wardens' help. The time has come for the
    Grey Wardens to make their return to Ostagar and exact their revenge upon the
    darkspawn.
    
    King Cailan Theirin inherited a Ferelden at peace, and it frustrated him
    immensely.  His father, beloved King Maric, had become a legend in his own
    lifetime, defeating the Orlesians to gain independence for the nation.  To
    Cailan, that was the proper role of a king-rallying people against a common
    enemy.  But he also believed his father's success had deprived him of the
    opportunity for greatness-Cailan's Ferelden was cursed by stability.
    
    And so it was that young King Cailan, hungry for glory and eager to emulate
    the ancient legends, committed the armies of Ferelden to face the darkspawn at
    the earliest sign of the Blight.  He took counsel from Grey Wardens, and
    bolstered his forces with foreign troops, even inviting soldiers from hated
    Orlais.  This angered many who had served under Maric, but Cailan had no
    interest in their quaint national prejudices; the darkspawn and their
    archdemon master-these were threats worthy of a soon-to-be legendary king.
    
    Whatever the reasons, Cailan and the Grey Wardens stood for Ferelden against
    the darkspawn. It should have been a decisive victory, but they were abandoned
    to face the horde alone.
    
    Return to fallen Ostagar, discover the fate of a king, and reveal the true
    cost of betrayal.
    
    Includes:
     - A return to the battlefields of Ostagar, now thick with darkspawn encamped
