Our story begins and centres around Ostwick: the city that was never taken. It is the largest supplier of food in all of Thedas and is crucial in preventing world spanning famine. “The Kestrels” is the name given to the group by the Nightingale – spymaster of the Inquisition. They watch for danger in Ostwick and in this, they fail.

Awakening one morning to fire and betrayel from within , the survivng Kestrels must fight to keep the Free Marches city from falling. Amongst them are Valeth – the young circle mage, Firil – the secretive rogue and Ness – the bloody elvish warrior.

Against the might of the rising Red Templars, how can such a small group hope to succeed?


The Kestrels is a story containing elements of addictive angst, awkward romance and thankfully humor (and a drunken Grey Warden). The Kestrels use Green Ronin’s Dragon Age RPG system with some modifications and additions and is streamed live on Twitch before being uploaded to YT and post-produced as a podcast. The Podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google podcasts, Pippa.io, PodcastAddict, Pocket Cast and pretty much anywhere you listen to podcasts.
