    Have you ever designed a character that you are simply itching to show off? Is there a random scenic spot in the game that you absolutely love? Do you ever feel the urge to tell a story with your character as you move through the world of Tyria? The Photoshoot Showdown is your chance to share your visions of your characters as they are in Tyria (and in your heart) with the rest of your guild! What this is: Go out in the world with your character, take a screenshot of them around the theme, and share! What do you mean, "theme"? We are not ju

    Roster time! We could only fill one group tonight, but hopefully we'll grow our numbers going forward! Note: I'm getting hit by that super huge weather system till like midnight, so I might lose internet and/or power. If someone'd be willing to tag if I can't make it, that'd be great Also- This is not going to be our normal raid time. Raids will be running Friday nights 8:30-11 EST going forward. So mark your calendars! Chrono: @TanksK Chrono: @Gallows Smile Druid: @Haiylee Healer: @Kae Banners: @Cynnanger DPS: @PaxtonR74 DPS:

  7. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/23 and 12/30] Ava was no longer outside my door in the morning, but I found her on the dock as we made our way off the gangplank. She was sitting there, whispering to herself, the same phrase over and over. It sounded like the same language as the previous night, but this time I couldn’t translate it myself. She didn’t notice me at first; she seemed like she was in some sort of trance. Thelonia approached and informed us that a horde of shadow minions had appeared on the opposite coast, also about a day from the forest.

  10. Quest Report 5/20 Report by Cedric Grayfuller Siscia tried everything she could to heal Eli; she summoned her tentacle, she burned some sketchy herbs, etc, but nothing had any effect. Given that we had been dealing with an incubus, I had a growing, horrible suspicion that nothing we were going to be able to do would help. When we eventually made it back to Sharn, we had to collectively carry him back to the guild hall, since none of us were really strong enough to do it on our own. Inside the guild hall, the guild leaders were all gathered at the big table on the r

    With the latest patch, Anet added in a new set of current events - fighting some riftstalkers! The best part of this event, besides the new achievements and weapons, is that the events spawn every 10 minutes and they're on core Tyria maps. Everyone can come! Dulfy's full guide is here, but the event is pretty straight forward: kill stuff and throw stuff! Jump through a portal! Repeat! Get loot! My goal is to do the cycle for the achievement, so bring a character with waypoints, cause there'll be some map hopping: Kessex Hills –> Lornar’s Pass

  13. It is late in the night, when quiet blankets the bright and sharp and leaves the world solemn. Top of Bottle stares out the window, furred cheek pressed against the glass. This time of night is when people fall into night-wandering and deep-thinking, but there is no one outside to observe. His companions are all exhausted. It is very likely that they are now resting. He can imagine Siscia snoring away against a pillow, a bottle of wine kicked off the bed. Cedric, either passed out or fretting himself into a lack of sleep which he will regret the next day.

    Hey all! With more and more people getting into fractals, and as many new people start doing challenge mote fractals (CMs) regularly, I would like to host a Fractal Workshop this Saturday at 9:30pm EDT (1.5h after reset) to clear some things up for new people, and to hopefully help people already doing CMs see areas where they can strive for more improvement! I will be streaming in a voice chat in Discord, so no need to be in game to listen in! Topics I will be discussing: Fractal Basics: Basic mechanics, Fractal Masteries and potions, Agony Resistance, Personal Fractal

  15. The warforged known as Shaper stood outside a room he had spent months in, and stared at the door. He was difficult to read, of course. There were no particular features to his face; His head was constructed in the form of a permanent helmet, with no mouth and thin slits for eyes that never deformed to show emotion of any kind. Somehow, though, the way that he stood hesitantly at the door suggested an anxiety and trepidation that read clearly to any that looked on, until eventually his metal fist reached up and rapped sharply at the door. After a moment, footsteps approached the

  16. Everything is wrong. There were cracks in the group before what happened to Eli, and he had been trying to work on mending them... but since he has been gone those cracks have grown in to deep fissures that may never be repaired. Shaper expected the anger from Eli, deserved it even. Everything had gone sideways and it was because Shaper had gambled and lost. Gambled... with the life of one of the people he had been tasked with protecting by the guild... as if it was a game. Shaper didn't really need to sleep. Even when he was in his inactive "restful" state his mind never shut

  17. [continued from previous post] Maeric took a few moments to gather his crew, and then he was out the door. Lionel, Nion, Scylla, Pif, and I followed behind him; Siscia wanted to stay behind to go see Eli. I don’t know where Duriel and Top of Bottle went; I lost sight of them. We could see more and more people who looked like they were from other adventurer’s guilds rushing around looking busy as we descended toward Lower Sharn. There were also an increasing number of guards posted everywhere. Some of them tried to stop us, but Maeric pulled out a piece of paper that app

Morgrave University Biannual Review Meeting “Grayfuller’s GPA’s only a 3.6?” asked Unaatris Droverson, Professor of Transmutation. “I’d have expected higher from him.” “He received a D in my Abjuration class,” clarified Quihana Milner. “Barely even got that. I think my six-year-old daughter has more talent for Abjuration than he does. But, from what I understand, he’s gotten an A in everything else.” “Who needs Abjuration anyway?” commented Roshen, in a tone that suggested that this was meant to be taken as a joke but that he might not have been to

  19. Recap 6/10/20 There's Something In the Water.... So, there we were in Scylla’s mom’s house. The baby-faced squirrel had made us all feel very, very sleepy. Apparently, that was some potent knock-out mojo because I am pretty sure we all had really wacky, realistic dreams. I kinda think they weren’t so much dreams as something in our heads telling us things we maybe didn’t want to know. When I came to in the morning, after a very upsetting-but-somehow-reassuring encounter with Reylana and then Eli, the whole party was recovering from that “rest.” Nion and Lionel were

  21. Howdy everyone! So here's an update on the state of D&D club, and where we're going from here. When we started the D&D club, we didn't expect to have a lot of interest. We figured people would come and go because of our busy schedules, so we thought that having one group that acted as a series of one off adventures would work best. However, we have had essentially the same people for many, many weeks and after a bit of discussion, they would like to stick together for a static campaign for the sake of continuity, as well as my own sanity. That being said, we'

    If you're new to raids, getting started is a daunting task. There's a lot if info out there and lots of boxes to check before getting into it. But I have recently discovered that Discord now lets you stream your web browser - which means I can show you how to do it, step by step! The goal will be to go over how to use the SnowCrows site, understanding why meta is important, reading your build, and setting up a character (and account) for raids. This is not an in-game event. I'll be doing most of it from the SnowCrows website, but may be hopping in and out of the game to

  24. - And it's totally worth it. I never played GW1 before 2 came out, but sometime before HOT came out, I bought GW out of curiosity. Played it for a couple hours and then uninstalled it. Didn't like the combat, didn't care much about Ascalon, couldn't jump. Flash forward till about last month, and I've been chewing through POF and the following living story maps and I thought, Man it'd be cool to see these maps like they were back in the first game. And then I remembered I had them. Why not, right? Got back in, made a new character- and started with Nightfall.

    TL;DR: Nominate someone to receive an act of kindness here. Volunteer to perform an act of kindness here. A wise ass once said, “The best way to earn karma is to treat others as you would like to be treated.” Nevermind that the person asking meant actual karma currency in GW2, or that they didn’t appreciate the wise ass’ input. Anyway…to the point… I’d like to start something to help show our fellow embers (and phoenixes and flames and whoever) that we care. We’re a community here, not just an in-game guild.

    Hello everyone! As you know, Champ Master @Peureki is on LOA for a bit and his Saturday night meta/loot trains are on hold. So I'm hosting a sort-of mini event this Saturday to fill the void in our wallets the time slot! This is a weird event and will not likely be super profitable or fast-paced. The goal is to hit champs that people need for collections, achievements, etc. So if you have any of those, or just want to come for fun and loot, come join! Since some champs may be tied up in event chains or timers, we'll likely fill the time with gathering or doing any othe

  29. At some point in Trolanport This sunny little patch of soil is perfect. It's hidden between the trees in the park, but still has room for growing. Top of Bottle digs a little hole with a gardening spade. "You were not a nice man," he scolds. He pours the dreadlocks into the dirt. He pats them into a neat pile, then packs soil on top. "I have not forgiven you for what you did to Connah and for using a lightning bolt to hurt Cedric. And I absolutely do not forgive you for breaking our promise." The man had said he had as many lives as he did dreadlocks.

Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 3/10, 3/17, and 3/31] We received a message the next morning requesting our presence at the guild hall; it wasn’t as if we weren’t planning to go there anyway, but Kal seemed impatient. Before we left, though, I talked to Delphine again. She was still directing everything; it looked like progress had been made since last night, but there was still a lot of work to do. Delphine herself looked like she hadn’t slept. I started to say goodbye and basically ended up awkwardly confessing that I like her. She’s spent so much energy chasing af

  36. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 8/19] I had pretty much just gotten to sleep when someone came around banging on the doors to wake everyone up. It wasn’t even dawn yet. As I trudged toward the common area, I noticed an envelope that had been slipped under the door at some point. There was no writing on the outside; I looked inside and found a sample of hair and blood—I think probably mine. I groaned: it was going to be one of those days, wasn’t it? Meanwhile, something was going on with the cowboys downstairs. I wasn’t totally able to follow all of what w

Nion, Lionel, and some others went to see Prof. Fandisqas, to whom they had given the Dragon’s Blood sample earlier, to follow up on what had happened in Lower Sharn this morning. The sample of Aureon-water collected this morning seemed to be fading in potency—which is concerning—but it still worked. Prof. Fandisqas had some corrupted rats, and she had observed that they seemed to become sluggish in the dark, which is definit

We did come across Rhea, who was addressing a big crowd about how the fight for Lower Sharn was almost won, hyping them up. As we navigated the crowd, someone grabbed Lionel, who looked back to see that Sofia had found him first. Sofia was wearing the emblem of her sister’s guild, the Knights of the Ashen Vale, a guild which she had previously told us she would avoid at all costs. But she seemed much more upbeat tha

Each folded piece is tied with red cord and sealed with black wax- the wax is marked with a single letter- N, L, E, C, S, S, P, Š. They lick their lips slightly as the consider their choices- “Where the will of the masters cannot be resisted, it can be subverted.” They lean back against their bed’s frame and close their eyes, their breathing deepens and a long silence fills the room.

As the party wandered the streets of Sharn gazing at the slim amount of wares available for sale, Pif glanced over her latest hit request (a few hundred gold for the head of a noble from House Phiarlan; she wondered if she could get this done before the party leaves Sharn). Eli’s outburst echoed in her mind, weaving through her thoughts like a snake. She contemplated a question that had been on her mind since she was in the Academy: what is a life worth? How does one make their life worthy? In the Academy, Pif was taught a life meant nothing. Like weapons, gold, jewelry, men, a lif

She grabbed a berry bush by its chin and laughed, “We’re going to find the puppiiiiiiiiiies!” The bush nodded happily, laughing along with her. It replied in Shaper’s voice, “That is the mission, you’re right!” Siscia somersaulted twice and then jumped to her feet. Her friends stood in front of her, weapons drawn. One was a giant rabbit. Behind her, the playful yapping of young pups echoed through the forest. She grabbed at the rabbit’s bow and tried to block Nion, who readied a shimmering magic o

I (and, for that matter, Lionel) hadn’t forgotten that this was one of our biggest incentives to go on this trip in the first place. I still remember my first time visiting the University library in Sharn, and how it really opened my eyes to all the possibilities in the world and myself. So many people had devoted so much time to sharing knowledge from places and cultures across the continent, across the world, even across time; to investigating

Quest Report 2/12 Report Filed by: Cedric Grayfuller Documentation of our adventures has been, let’s say, less than consistent up to this point, and this led to some awkward moments last time when we ran into someone I should have recognized but didn’t, and so I figure it would probably be a good idea if I start taking this adventuring thing seriously and writing down notes of my own. Who knows, maybe some minor thing we notice today will turn out to be a vital clue to a puzzle we encounter months from now, and we might save ourselves a lot of trouble if we just study hard enoug
