Just days after Microsoft picked up "The Guild" for a fifth season, Felicia Day has taken another step towards complete domination of the web.

According to USA Today, Day has signed a deal with BioWare to write and star in a new six part web series set in the world of the hit "Dragon Age" video game series.

In "Dragon Age: Redemption," Day will portray Tallis, an elven assassin.

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

Day also indicated that more characters will be joining Tallis on her quest.

"She can’t accomplish her mission alone, so finding allies is tricky," related Day. "The success or failure of the mission will have a big impact on her future and her freedom."
 
Although very few video games have been successfully adapted into live action, Day voiced her confidence that "Dragon Age: Redemption" will overcome that stumbling block.

"I am an organic gamer and I love games, and I particularly love this franchise," said Day. "I put every single effort into making this something that gamers will be proud of. Even though we were constrained a lot as a Web series, none of the people who were involved took that as a constraint. They took that as a challenge."

"Just being able to make a Web series that is tied with such a huge property … really the premier role-playing game out there, this is a dream project come true," added Day.

The project was filmed last month in Los Angeles with Peter Winther ("Independence Day") as the director and John Bartley ("Lost") as the cinematographer. "Dragon Age: Redemption" is expected to debut later this year.
