Got the job! I'm now an honest-to-Andraste policeman, complete with shiny uniform and a gun that I might even be able to hit something with someday. I'd still rather have a sword and shield, and I'd definitely rather have armor than this bulletproof whatever--does it really work?--but when in Orlais and all that.
Though it would stop the local gangs in their tracks to see a man in full-plate armor wearing a sword running towards them and shouting, don't you think? Maybe I should see if I can get special permission to try it. Might scare a few of the local drug dealers into sobriety.
