That's pretty much the problem, Sulcher's Pass isn't on my map.

Im assuming the campaing is not linear and you can go everywhere you want?

Im stuck in a ruin filled with skeletons that just outnumber me everytime.
First i had to deal with a small dragon wich took me alot of attemps and frustration, now things got even worse.

Am I even supposed to be there? Im at the ruins near the elf town in that forrest.
I'm lvl 7 right now.

Ahh, there was a few problems with the DLC including Map Markers not showing, quests unable to start etc. There is a huge list of troubleshooting tips on the Bioware's website as well as direct links to the DLC if you need to re-install it. I had this same problem and a re-install fixed it.

1. Does the answer you give in conversations affect the gameplay? I usually answer in a nice way, but sometimes I mouth off for the hell of it and it doesn't seem to matter.

2. I'm playing a dalish elf rogue. When you sneak, is there a way to make your party come running to help automatically when you make a sneak attack. Seems like they either stay back or just "sneak" with me which defeats the purpose.

3. When do the starting race stories come together? I don't know if I'm still playing the beginning or what. I just finished the part where you light the warning cauldron and the one dude retreated from battle.

4. Do the chests get any better? I don't know whether I should invest any more in lockpicking because so far it hasn't been too worth it.

Edit:

5. Also, how do you enchant your weapons with the little runes you get?

The Dragon Age wiki might be able to help you some.

As far as showing "scenes" when just kissing party members nothing else happens, same as the Pearl in Denerim. Actually joining a party member in their tent brings up a scene one-time only, but there still isn't much going on.

1. I think all answers are supposed to have an effect on gameplay and storyline, either small or large. Mouthing off to party members can actually cause them to leave permanently. As far as NPC's, I was always nice. I plan on playing a mean character pretty soon though.

2. Try setting up player tactics. When your rogue attacks, have all other players attack the same enemy automatically.

3. The origin stories sync together when you first meet the king at Ostagar.

4. Most of the chests hold vendor loot and decent equipment, some of the chests have some nice items, and others hold items for side quests. I think it's definitely worth it. I maxed out my party's rogue on lockpicking before any other skills.

5. When you get ready to leave Lothering, there will be a traveling merchant at the exit being attacked by darkspawn. After helping him and his son, they will always be available at your party camp. The merchant has some nice and useful items and the son will do enchantment.

your dialog directly affects the outcomes of many plot points, as well as how your party members feel about you.
