Evon Gnashblade – For Lion’s Arch!

Cut-Throat Politics

In the aftermath of the assassination of a Captain’s Council member, the prominent merchant Evon Gnashblade has made a bid for the dead pirates seat.

When asked what he had to offer Lion’s Arch, the cunning Charr, in true cut-throat style, promised to slash prices at the Black Lion Trading Company.

“As owner and proprietor of the Black Lion Trading Company, I have the proven leadership skills and business acumen that is sorely needed on the Captain’s Council. With your support, I will secure a trade agreement with the Zephyrites that benefits us all.

If I am elected to the Captain’s Council, I’ll show my gratitude for your support in the following ways:

  • I’ll slash prices on Black Lion Keys for four whole weeks
  • I’ll sponsor important Fractals of the Mist research into the Fall of Abaddon, to be completed by the end of the year
  • I’ll host a rotation of popular activities like Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

You can find me in the Zephyr Sanctum, working for the best interests of Lion’s Arch.”

It will come as no surprise to anyone that his blatant act of bribery has been welcomed by the general population.

The Real Question is:

Will you let Evon buy your vote, or has Ellen Kiels won you over with her own golden enticements?

Only time will tell, but on the 2nd August do not be too surprised to see Gnashblades face plastered on every wall in Lion’s Arch.

Ellen Kiel – Lionguard Captain for Council!

Cut-Throat Politics

After heading the investigation into the assassination of a Captain’s Council member, the Lionguard Captain Ellen Kiel has joined the race to win the now vacant council seat.

When we caught up with the human in Lion’s Arch, the Captain shared her tactics to ensure victory at the polls.

“I’ve stood by the people of Lion’s Arch in good times and bad, defending her from all manner of threat. Now I want to ensure the security of our beloved city in a different capacity, as a member of the Captain’s Council. I’ll need your support to establish a fair trade treaty between Zephyr Sanctum and Lion’s Arch.

If I’m fortunate enough to earn a position on the Captain’s Council, here’s what you can expect from me:

  • I’ll reduce waypoint travel prices for four weeks’ time
  • I’ll support important Fractals of the Mists research into the Thaumanova Reactor explosion by the end of the year
  • I’ll introduce a rotating schedule of activities such as Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

Come find me in Zephyr Sanctum; let’s work together for a brighter future!”

Some will see this price reduction as a publicly minded act of charity, others as a counter offer to the financial inducement from her rival Gnashblade.

Whatever your opinion, she is a strong candidate, and will give her Charr adversary a run for his money.

The Real Question is:

Has the Captain done enough to garner your support at the polls, or is she just another power hungry wannabe politician?

Only time will tell, but on the 2nd August if the streets of Lion’s Arch are filled with drunken brawling humans, you will know who has won.

GW2lfg.com, anyone? By Anaxilea Pendragon

GW2lfg.com, anyone?

Recently, I’ve decided to farm the dungeon, Citadel of Flame (CoF), for token rewards, on Path 1. I figured, the quickest and fasted way for me to find a group, for dungeon runs, would be through the gw2lfg.com site.

I’ve used the site in the past, it’s proven to be useful, and the groups that I have encountered seemed relatively friendly. Unfortunately, this time around, for an unknown reason, the general tone and mood of these groups changed.

Guilds in Guild Wars 2 ~ By Anaxilea Pendragon

Guilds in Guild Wars 2
By – Anaxilea Pendragon

I came across a statement that I felt summed up the idea behind guilds well. It went something like this, “a guild is a group of like-minded individuals working together to accomplish common goals”.

In many MMOs the main purpose of guilds is to help players advance through game content. This means helping players level and run them through instances and raids in order to gear. However, this isn’t the only purpose of guilds. In some circumstances some guilds are more focused on socialisation than in-game progression. Obviously, in all guilds, there exists a mixture of the two, progression and socialisation, but in different dozes.

Unfortunately, I feel that GW2 guilds miss both of these elements. I’m sure most of you have logged in to find an eerily quiet guild, even though a good few members were online at the time. Or perhaps, you’ve logged in to find only a handful of you representing the guild, while the rest were representing other guilds. Whether the feature to join multiple guilds and switch between them is responsible entirely for a lack of socialisation between members in guilds is debatable. Though, there is no denying that this unique feature is partially to blame.

An Interview with: Lady Zarabeth Nicholaides & Minister Arthenon Moreau

The sun was setting over the Nicholaides Manor upon the outskirts of the Salma District of Divinity’s Reach. There, I took tea with the Lady-Chatelaine, Zarabeth Nicholaides, her beloved Arthenon Moreau, the Minister of Fort Salma. Lady Zarabeth had put together what she deems her Tension Slayer tea, something that soothed the nerves and mind as we took company together outside upon a large balcony overseeing the rest of the city.

‘‘Lady Zarabeth,’’  I bowed to the Lady Priestess. ‘‘I thank you for accepting my invitation.’’ I took out my small leather bound journal, and looked across the table to her and the Minister.

‘‘Indeed, Lady Kingspear. Thank you for being here with us today.” Zarabeth rested her hand gently into Arthenon’s with a smile as she presented me with a small gift, a bottle

of her favored blueberry wine distilled and created by her own sister Iridoria. [i]“Please accept this with our most humblest gratitude that you would come and visit us today.”[/i]

‘With your permission, I will begin.’’’
