Aug 22, Kristin rated it did not like it Shelves: Ein paar Situationen wurden mir auch zu schnell bzw. On the plane ride back from Florida however, I was already knee-deep in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The story dragged in bits and the ending seemed rushed as well as I wasn’t much of a reader at the time, but I knew I’d need to buy something if I were to survive.

Guild Wars saved my life. As for the extinction of the Dwarves This is a strong point for the plot; how it creates opportunities to hand out lore and information like food coupons, yet without it askallonu feeling forced.

His group goes through some tough times and they lose some friends in battle. The female characters did not fare well in this story as well, which sort of put me off a bit. I feel a little dissapointed of this book.

.: Marek Pawelec – book translations :.

Let’s just say he’s not the nicest or most reasonable man that ever lived. Pretty much the only downside was that it’s very noticeable that poor authors had to squeeze a metric fuckton of lore and worldbuilding into the novel, so there are a lot of walls of text clumsily grafted into dialogues.

The best part about this book is that, as a long-time Guild Wars player, I’ve been reading about places I’ve visited, events I took part in, and foes I defeated.


Very easy to read and gives more details of what happened before Guild Wars 2. Thank you, ye mighty Guild Wars!

Ghosts of Ascalon

These books really help put the human and mortal perspective to the in-game characters askalonuu world. It is based off an RPG, it meant to connect the two games together, and doesn’t go too in-depth on much of anything.

He said it could be a bestseller half-jokingly, half hoping. One of my favorite battles is towards the beginning, when they face the giant and almost fail to beat him. I don’t even really read askaponu in the fantasy genre, nor am I very interested in many high fantasy works in the vein of Guild Wars.

Feb 16, Kastarnia Kozal rated it really liked it. I started playing Guild Wars 2 about two months ago and I was fascinated by the Ascalonians and their tragic history. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. But one obstacle remains.

Asura, Norn, and Charr are all familiar races. It has been disappointing characterwise, as well. Unknown to me at the time, the choice of the Asura and Charr of Tyria over Holden Caulfield of New York was undoubtedly critical to the course my life would subsequently take. Guild Wars changed my life?

It was refreshing to have her to challenge the views of the askalnou races.

I remember it being very immersing and exciting. It all started a few years ago, Summer The story isn’t deep or meaningful, and there is some basic storytelling cliche here and there, but it was still an enjoyable read.

It was just a lot of fun. The pitfalls and pratfalls along the way feed the plot. At least it wasn’t a sad surprise this way: I particularly enjoyed the way that each race was depicted so accurately to how they turned out in the actual game.


Instead, I got a tale of adventure where a group is charged with the task of storming Ascalon City to re More like 3. Reading about all the races and their struggles and finding out more lore on this world – I enjoyed it so much, and the double-cross at the end really got me – not so much the betrayal but the acts that went into it. It’s not like all I did was read while in Florida A part of me even wishes the novel could have been longer, but it ended well and for the most part it was well-paced.

A typical quest band of intentionally mismatched adventurers set out on a quest for an artifact that can bring world peace. For more on my work, see Forbeck. D And yeah, I am playing a charr.

It was certainly a wonderful addition to the Guild Wars universe and lore, even if only solid fantasy fare.

I was sad about Killeen’s death, but it’s probably better that since the moment she’d been introduced I knew she would die, because I’ve seen her grave in the game long before starting the novel. It seemed like every other chapter saw our adventurers getting into yet another fight, but at least the story was moving forward. I am frightened of the possibility of immersion and a subsequent sublimation of my personality.
