Nine of Cups


Significance: A Behemoth is practically all red lyrium, and almost the most powerful of Corypheus’s minions.

Cups 09

The card itself represents: Plentifulness and fulfillment, wishes that are granted, prosperity, a happy future, success, rewarded efforts, material and emotional attainment, positive environments, accurate intuition, victory, performance, etc.

Reversed: Overturned success, poor choices, suspicion, disturbed tranquility, selfish desires, self-indulgence, sorrow, irresponsibility, squandered future, complacency, blind faith, emotional blockages, foolishness, etc.

Cups 09 O

The embodiment of the all consuming corruption itself, the Behemoth sees only death and torture. It sees the darkness that surrounds all and threatens to engulf everything.  A white moon shines upon the darkness, showing the truth to all who can see it.  A clawed hand reaches out monstrously, ready to pierce through the veils of reality and expose the corruption seeping into and out of everything.

What I think this means for DA: I feel that these creatures on these cards are getting more and more morbid, or perhaps it’s my interpretation of it, but there is a sort of morbid and dark aspect to Dragon Age, and I think if we’re not careful, if we don’t gather enough resources, we could see a very dark and morbid end to the game, whether in DA4 or DA5 or another one.  It really depends; the ending could be happy, tragic, morbid.  It’s in the realm of the endless possibilities.
