It’s been well over three years since I initially recorded Tears of the Hist for Fjona/Interesting NPCs, and let’s just say that after three years I feel like my voice has improved. A lot.

“A Shred of Blue” is my favourite codex from Dragon Age: Inquisition. It can be found in the Fallow Mire, and seems to be a song about the Grey Warden Calling – the song of the Archdemon that signals the end of the Warden’s life.

Here’s Anna Castiglioni performing a mandola version of A Warrior’s Life. Mandolas, also known in Mando’a as the Mando’ade, or “Children of Mandalore”—were a nomadic group of clan-based people bound by a common culture. Boba Fett, for instance, is a Mando…
