    Well, I beat the game and am about halfway through the second play through and I had some questions for others who beat the game and maybe did it in a different way. My first play through I seriously tried to date Isabela and Merril, having sex with them in that order, but I ended up with Merril. Though, Isabela leaving town that first play through was probably a big thing against our relationship.

    This second play through, I got Isabela to stay, but I still seem to be with Merril again, when I wanted to end up with Isabela this time, I was hoping that her staying would mean that she and I would be together. Is it possible to have Isabela in a very close relationship if you don't try to date others? Will she move in with you like Merril does?

    Also, I wanted to ask about Hawke's mother. Is it possible at all to save her? The first play through I killed that blood mage, Du Puis, but on the second I let him live to help me with mother. It even said to look for him /or/ help Gamlen look for mom but try as I might, I could NEVER find Du Puis. Bugged mission? And I really wanted to save her too.

    I did the same thing for my first playthrough. I'm trying to do it the other way. But I think to get the ultimate relationship you have to get the hearts in conversations more (more gifts probably).
    And because Isabela's companion quests aren't available until the very end, you have to reject every other girls until then to get her.

    Also I don't think you can prevent Hawke's mother's death. It's scripted. [probably]

    That is a shame. Why does Bioware seem so compelled to make Hawke's whole family die? I mean, even the sibling that survives the beginning can die..your father probably died in the swarms of Darkspawn before the game even starts, probably died in Lothering.

    And you can't even save the mother, no matter which options you choose! They made a big deal about your actions changing things and seeing soon later the effects your actions have, but they force things like this on us. -_-'

    I think Hawke's father dies long before the start of the game and I've found no way to save Hawke's mom. I've only tried to romance 1 person each playthrough so I can't help you there.

    I think that is so there is something for Hawke to hate the mages at the end. Because the First Enchanter is behind the murderer.

    You probably didn't complete all the necessary steps to fully romance Isabela. Here's a topic on bioware forum listing the steps need for all romanceable characters Link

    The first enchanter is NOT behind Hawke's mothers killer. It was a human, the First Enchanter is Elven. And I sided with mages both playhthroughs, I consider the Templars to be evil in this.

    I know. But if you sided with the templars and fought the first enchanter, it revealed that the first enchanter actually knew the killer and helped him from being discovered. That's also the reason for Bethany to rejoin the Hawke's side in the fight against the enchanter and the knight-commander.

    I think that the mages are actually more devious. Take Anders for example, he used Hawke to assassinate the Grand Cleric. The First Enchanter supported Hawke's mother's killer. Most of them dwelt in blood magic, even Merill whom I loved.
    The templars were only controlled by the crazed knight-commander. Not that they actually wanted to suppress the mages so much.
