We’ve done a lot of work for Bioware in the past and for Dragon Age 2 they actually had us create an in-game item. It’s a magical belt called Hindsight that automatically gains a resistance to whatever type of damage killed its last owner. So when wearing it you still die but the belt learns and the next person who wears it won’t die from the same thing. We made a motion comic explaining a bit about the history of the belt and you can check it out over on the DA site.
Be sure and hit their site to see the comic and get your Hindsight for your game!
