Stone Prisoner is worth getting, it came with my version of the game, not sure if it comes with all, I think possibly it does. But I just got wardens quest so I have not yet played it that will come later. Right now I'm still trying to pick between morrigan and wynne

Appearantly specializations once unlocked in one playthroughs are unlocked for all, was not expecting that.

stone prisoner comes with all original copies of the game. Its to make added value for people who buy original not a used copy. Wardens keep is a add on for colectors edition, and available for dlc for the normal edition if you want it.
imo, stone prisoner is ok.....wardens keep is better, but it gives you a nice set of armour and a 70 slot storage chest to keep stuff when you finish it. over all, i would buy wardens keep, probably would pass on stone prisoner. Luckily if you buy a new copy you wont need to make that decision though.

Hmm. Well, Warden's keep is only $7 by itself, and nothing else in the collector's edition really appeals to me, so I think I'll just go with the original. I didn't realize that stone prisoner comes with all original copies of the game, that's pretty sweet considering it's $15 otherwise. And I do see that little footnote on their site now that you mention it.

Just have to get by my math midterm in two hours, then catch a ride to the store and this game's mine. You know, I used to like math, back in high school. Now that I'm in third year engineering it's just so complicated... and hard...

I thought Stone Prisoner was only free with pre-orders?

Dragon Age Origins - Addon

Says on the stone prisoner that every new retail box of DA: O contains a promo code on a promo card for free download, and digital purchases will have the code emailed to them.

Lol im 20 hours in and still havent quite hit level 10, i must be doing something wrong :(

Nothing wrong with taking your time, my second playthrough is going a lot faster than my first, probrably because I can dominate combat now. Battles that I would have barely won, or lost 100 times I now breeze through, I am going to have to up the difficulty for my third, I can take on Ogres one on one with my current human noble. One of the reasons why I am better at combat is not only that I understand combat itself better but also because I understand the leveling up aspect better, all of my characters are much more focused on specific skill sets, and this time one of my warriors is doing the work rather than relying on my mage for the damage dealing.

Great game though, Wardens Keep was alright, probably not worth 7 and the storage should have been included in the game and preferably in the camp but I'll get over that, just hope future content is better

I expect someone will mod some kind of storage in the camp area soon (hint, hint).

Where do you go to start Warden's Keep or the Stone Prisoner stuff? I have them both installed but I'm not sure where to go to begin the quests, I don't see anywhere on the map of Ferelden and from what I've read it's possible to do these right off the start.
