GW2: Living Story Season 1 Wrap Up
My friend Pete from Dragoncashers asked for a run down of the season 1 living story over on Twitter. Who am I to deny a man some lore? Take a seat while I wrap up the story so you too can get ready for season 2. (disclaimer: some events might be mixed up or entirely left out if you want the real deal check the wiki but it won’t be as funny.)
It all started on a cold winter day. The Norn & Charr in some invisible interdimension between Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau were being attacked by some new fangled cult. It took months, literally months, for them to get their shit together and finally move on to Lion’s arch and find refuge with the Consortium. During that time we teamed up with Rox (a charr ranger) and Braham (son of Eir Stegalkin and a major wtf moment) to take down some baddies.
After that was all taken care of we went to help the refugees out on Southsun Cove. No one really cares what happened there. It’s a big island no one visits anymore with nasty crabs and we discovered some slyvari named Canash doing some bad stuff in this god awful cave and we fought him. We also got to meet some human nobles such as Lady Kasmeer Meade who really thought taking a vacay on some god for saken mob infested island was a good idea.
Once that was all taken care of we had a party to celebrate the dragons. Cause yeah that’s always a great idea. During the events there was some ceremony in Lion’s Arch and of course nothing goes right and a council member for Lion’s Arch was killed. Logan Thackeray (the love toy of the human Queen) wants answers! So he seeks out some noir style detective named Marjory Delaqua to get results. We used some fancy device to figure out who dun it but after we figure it out the Atherblade Pirates come and rescue her. We run off to find out more information about the pirates, plunder their booty, and all that good stuff. Apparently they built a base like right outside of Lion’s Arch. I guess those Lionguard aren’t good for anything.
So with the death of a council member there is a vacant seat. And we the free people of Tyria get to vote by throwing our votes in the basket of some people who live in the sky and just magically appeared. People keep doing that apparently. Ellen Kiel and the charr dude who owns the blacklion trading company are up for the seat. One of them one but no one remembers if their campaign promises were fulfilled. Such is the way with politics. During the voting we hang out with the people in the sky and get in on all their trippy crystal hopping fun. Then sadly one day they leave and everyone is sad cause it reminds them of Cantha (some place in gw1) and everyone really just wants to go back there cause they are sick of Tyria.
To cheer everyone up the Queen of Kryta has a party. Cause that always goes well. She covers the giant hole in her city with the domed pit of awesome leveling and some fancy area you need a ticket for so who the hell knows what goes on in there. She also decks the place out in these huge robot women with shiny booties. Of course something goes wrong, don’t people freaking learn by now, and we have to save the day. Scarlet aka the planet based Harley Quinn makes her debut and some how takes over the robot women. We try and stop her but we fail. Scarlet takes her robot army and apparently the Atherblade pirates and wrecks havoc across tyria. More awesome leveling and zergness ensues. And even though we hate Scarlet we love her cause she makes us rich.
Scarlet then takes up hiding in the Nightmare Court. We find her hiding place and most of it is pretty fun cept for that dude with the bombs. Fuck him. He can die in a fire. After that Scarlet built some huge ass tower of zergness in Kessex Hills filled with nasty toxin. By this time everyone was getting tired of the zergness and lack of storiness and Scarlet’s ability to basically be in charge of every evil faction that decides to wreak havoc on the world. Then Scarlet built some huge ass robot chick to kick our asses. Some shit also went down in the edge of the Mist but that’s pvp and all those people don’t give a rats ass about living story. After that was done Scarlet attacked Lion’s arch. It was full of red fiery…you guessed it zerginess of death. We battled Scarlet to save Lion’s Arch. She died the best villain death and made some speech no one cares about.
seriously go check the wiki….
