Great things often happen in the OCC forum. This was one of them. Thanks to @FLYbarger, we had a little quiz/game show of our own - us who have played the Dragon Age games would ask questions related to them, that those who don't know a lick of DA lore would answer. You would expect hilarity to ensue, and I can assure you, it did.
So here it is: a beginner's guide to Dragon Age... by beginners.
@EricVela: Who is Flemeth?
Fly: He's a wizard... and he looks like Gandalf.
@Joron093: Female sorcerer married to goat thucker/chucker?
Me: Who is Andraste?
Joron: Leader of the inquisition?
Fly: He's a dwarf... and a policeman
@Desayjin: Mabari as best described as ... what?
Joron: A female dwarf that wears magic rock armor. Or is that the guy who controls ones wardrobe?
@malide: It's an event in which the dragons return to the land.
Fly: I'm going to burn one of the only two phrases I know in this universe... A Darkspawn leader
@MrWartburg: What are the Grey Wardens?
Fly: A type of neutral police who balance the good and evil in the universe?
Joron: Stone walls?
Malide: They're responsible for keeping the peace between dragons and everything else.
Desayjin: Templar's arch-rivals are .... ?
Joron: The Assassins
Fly: I agree with Joron
Malide: The mabari.
Me: What is Orzammar?
Joron: Magic hammer used by the dwarves to forge magic armor and weapons.
Malide: It's a location that is very difficult to get to, but is the source of the dragons power.
Fly: An Elven word that means friend... (Lord of the Rings don't fail me now!!!)
Desayjin: Orlais is to France as Tevinter is to ... what?
Joron: Crescent rolls?
Eric: What is the Qun?
Joron: It's a tribe, group or race of peoples in the lands of Dragon Age, who at some point suddenly got horns and Sten loves cookies. And they like to ban lots of stuff.
Malide: The Qun is the weapon of the leader of a rebelious group of dwarves.
Fly: An olympic style event where the Dwarves make their families proud.
Me: Describe Bianca.
Fly: Easy. She's totally a mage who had her entire family slain by Darkspawn...
Desayjin: What is a Grey Warden's source of power?
Joron: A Grey Warden's source of power is there cloak, people who have cloaks in games are usually bamfs.
Needless to say, 'twas 100% correct. All of it.
