The Black City from Dragon Age

If you have played the game, do you think the city is like a Ravenloft domain, and it seems the Fade would be like the Ethereal or all planes separated from the Prime by the Veil.

I played the first Dragon Age

I played the first Dragon Age, so my knowledge of the cosmology is limited. I skipped through most of the text pop-ups... Anyway, I'm not sure that the Dragon Age cosmology maps easily on to anything resembling the Planes as they are outlined in Planescape.

Perhaps it is the Border Ethereal that has become infested over time with various spirits and demons. It kind of reminds me a bit of Athas.

Some sources on the Fade that I looked at include:

Looking some more into it, it

Looking some more into it, it was inspired by D&D, but there are some fundamental differences. And some interesting concepts, such as using sacrificial magic to break planar barriers, corruption of spirits (petitioners?) when they are forced to act against their nature, and corrupted minerals like the red lyrium for the inner planes. Also there’s a network of portals, and each has a specific key like in Planescape. Not much info about the city tough.
