one is still missing Age of Dragon 4 release date in sight, and we’re all dealing with it in our own way. I have my eye on my copy of Tevinter Nights for a second reading. Meanwhile, a more diligent Dragon Age fan, KawaiiFoxita, is recreating Dragon Age Inquisition locations within The Sims 4, and these gorgeous buildings are making me homesick for Thedas.
I remembered KawaiiFoxita’s Inquisition-inspired builds thanks to SimsCommunity, which highlighted this latest build inspired by the Skyhold tavern room where his devious sidekick Sera hangs out. I’ll admit I didn’t spend much time with Sera, so I had to load up my old save to check out her bard block for comparison, and boy, did Foxita nail the cozy, cluttered interior.

As an avid but amateur Sims 4 builder, I can only imagine all the time Foxita spent carefully placing all the books, baskets, and decorative pillows. It takes a lot of effort to make a room look perfectly cluttered.
As you can imagine, no, this heraldry banner of the Inquisition is not native to The Sims 4. There is no official Dragon Age-inspired game pack – although I would certainly be happy to have one. Instead, many of the items contained in this compilation are Sims 4CCcontent modified in-game by many other creators.
I remember first encountering Foxita’s builds last year when they shared one inspired by the party’s first base, Haven. I immediately sent it to a friend whose first reaction, like mine, was “isn’t that a screenshot of the Inquisition?” The Sims 4 may not be able to support a complete one-to-one recreation, but Foxita’s aesthetic is really on point. Just look at all those snowy pine trees in the background.

All in all, Foxita’s builds are just making me crave the excitement that leads to the next game in a series I’ve been with since the beginning. The wait for Dragon Age 4 has been a long one, and I’m no stranger to being the resident Dragon Age idiot in the room, but it’s a good reminder that there are plenty of other fans at the crossroads between Dragon Age and the Sims building — a diagram of Venn bigger than you think.
I’m already excited to see what new locations Dragon Age 4 takes us to in Tevinter, and how talented Sim builders end up imagining them.
