I had the opportunity to briefly see the Dragon Age RPG by Green Ronin in play today at Free RPG Day 2011 but not actually play it. I was able to pick up the FRPG Day mini-adventure and read through it and while it may be different from what I am used to (3.X, PF, and 4E) I was able to get the gist of it quite easily.
Where I was stumped was with combat. I realized that coming from a D&D heavy background that I am quite spoiled when it comes to miniatures, having just had my first narrative-only adventure ran today.
Does combat for Dragon Age make use of a game mat and miniatures? Is it all narrative-based?
