Account[edit | edit source]

My account was created towards the end of March 2006, right after the Factions Preview Event, in which I got an invitation from a Yoshi.

Titles[edit | edit source]

Rather poor progression on account-based title tracks:

Special Events[edit | edit source]

Notable special events I participated in. Others not "sectioned" below include the Factions Preview, Halloween 2006, Elite Weekend, Nightfall PvP Preview, and the Nightfall World Preview.

Dragon Festival 2006[edit | edit source]

The first in-game event I participated in. A rather interesting period and fun games. I really like Dragon Nest but it's hard to find people playing it towards the middle and the end. Guess everyone was too busy with Nine Rings and the Rings of Fortune for the new Lucky and Unlucky title tracks. I gave up on them because I don't have even close to the amount of gold all those afk-ers have. Dragon Arena was really fun, even though I still couldn't master the art of dodging properly (due to the usual average 2-3 seconds ping?).

Not very impressive scores, but hey, still better than some:

  • Dragon Nest
    • Personal best: 59
  • Dragon Arena
    • Best team win: 20 to 3
    • Most consecutive wins: 8
    • Most consecutive 20 to 19 wins: 3
    • Kill streak: 4
    • Most killed: 7

Wintersday 2006[edit | edit source]

First-ever Wintersday for me. It was all right I guess, considering my connection was (as with most of my alliance) affected by the Taiwan earthquake. I didn't really get to do much, aside from completing most of the PvE quests and even managing to participate in one snowball fight before the disaster. Rather horrible of me to think of how disastrous it was to me instead of those physically affected... oh well. I didn't even get the masks (I was sick then; but a guildie told me he couldn't even login for the finale).


Lore[edit | edit source]

The Gods of Tyria[edit | edit source]


Warning: The following contains spoilers on the Gods of the world of Guild Wars.

A look at the Gods of Tyria as Wikipedia:List of deities of Dungeons & Dragonsdeities of D&D. I used to have this part as a lore subpage but I kinda flagged it for deletion on a whim. There was a brief discussion on it here. Fortunately, I found that Antonio had an old version of it, and was able to add it back.

After Nightfall[edit | edit source]

Kormir has absorbed the divine essence of Abaddon at the end of the Nightfall Campaign. Only knowledge and truth was mentioned, but in light of the Forgotten Realms mechanics, the whole portfolio of Abaddon should have been absorbed and Abaddon reduced to a demipower. There is a conflict with Grenth's portfolio by saying she's the Goddess of Truth though, as Grenth was mentioned to have the portfolio that counters Lyssa's deception and illusion. Maybe the truth can be explained as the exposure of secrets.

Kormir (Goddess of Knowledge and Truth, the All-Knowing, Lady of the Light, Goddess of Water), Greater God, Neutral Good
