(Spoilers) I mistakenly thought ANY noble would be able to marry Alistair, so I made a dwarf noble and went on my happy way. But I guess it's only humans =/

I know there's a mod that lets anyone marry him, but I want it to be as legitimate as possible (for example at the end of the game, I hear that the game tells you what happens to your character. I.e. a dwarf can become a paragon. Will my game show me that ending? Will it reflect that I married Alistair at all?)

Ideally I'd like a mod that can make my game think that I legitimately started as a human instead, even changing the look of my character to human. Taking out all conversational references to me ever having been a dwarf, and replace them with the human noble options. I realize this is probably impossible or really hard to accomplish, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks in advance.

It would be much easier to mod the game so that Alistiar will romance any race, though I don't know off-hand if such a mod exists.

To do what you're asking would take even more effort than just starting another playthrough, so if you can't find anything on the Nexus or Google, it probably doesn't exist.

Using a bow sure has its drawbacks. :V

There is a mod that lets you marry Alistair as any race (I mentioned it in my original post) but I was worried I wouldn't get the full / legitimate experience with it (maybe someone who's used it can chime in?).

And I would be fine starting a new game, except that I'm already like 40 hours in =/

Get the mod "MetaGame Items" as it can do exactly what you're asking for.

Great thanks for the heads up! Just to confirm, there won't be too many issues using it?

Decided to give it a shot. On my character sheet is says that I'm a human noble, but I still look like a dwarf (That's fine I guess). I'm a little worried though since Gorim is still talking to me like he knows me, guess I'll have to wait and see if the marriage goes through to make sure it worked.

The marriage should work out just fine. You'll run into some weirdness in Orzammar because your character will have flags that no longer match your origin, but it shouldn't be anything game-breaking.

The only origin that really does have issues to switch out of or into is the Tower of Magi. And that's only because a lot of things in the game are coded to look at the Mage class instead of the Mage origin.
