Guild Wars 2 Lore by WoodenPotatoes

There are many people new to Guild Wars World (myself included) who may be unfamiliar with the lore of the world of Tyria. As the 2 in the Guild Wars 2 title indicates, there is an original game entitled Guild Wars where the story of Tyria, and its lore, begins.

From the elder dragons and their minions bent on destroying everything in their path to the reasons behind the rebuilding of Lions Arch, there is a mountain of information out there to help with our immersion into the world of Tyria. Although I read as much as I can to become as familiar as possible with GW2's lore, I also enjoy visual information when possible and that is where this video series by WoodenPotatoes comes in.

This is the first part of a short summary series I'm making to teach people about the Guild Wars universe. If you know nothing about the story at all because you didn't play the first game, but like the sound of the second - look no further!

This weeks installment introduces us to the heroes of Guild Wars 1. It wasn't in the original plans for the series, but I felt deserved a spot so we knew who we were actually rooting for in the plot!

Work for todays installment comes from a whopping three different artists! Please give them as much kudos as possible, they worked their bums off.
