Felicia Day is to star in a web series based on BioWare's Dragon Age franchise. The star of popular web series The Guild has also written the six-episode series, titled Dragon Age: Redemption.

The series is set in Ferelden, the land first seen in 2009's Dragon Age: Origins and soon to be seen in Dragon Age II. Several races join forces to combat the evil known as the Darkspawn. Redemption centres on an Elven assassin called Tallis, who Day will play.

"Tallis is headstrong, she fights dirty, and she has a really sarcastic sense of humour," said Day. "I wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world."

"We are really, really excited to work with people like her who have a passion and appreciation for the content and a really good history of quality," said BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk. "That's who we want to work with."

Dragon Age II is due for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 11. A demo is due for release on February 22.
