Remember a couple of years ago when Guild Wars 2’s narrative team introduced a lore series about the bespectackled Asura Vikki and her pink moa pet Momo? I kinda liked those. If you did too, then you’re going to dig what ArenaNet is up to this week, as it’s released the first of what will apparently be multiple short stories that begin in the wake of the game’s last living story episode, All or Nothing.
This first “requiem” features everyone’s favorite Charr, Rytlock Brimstone. Based on the other silhouettes, future stories will apparently focus on Caithe and Zafirah.
It should go without saying that the story includes some serious spoilers for the episode – in fact, the big spoiler is right there in the text on the first page – so bookmark it for later if you’re still working through. Otherwise, you can dig in right here.
Do note that ArenaNet has requested feedback on the format. Reddit is a bit torn; obviously some folks would rather have more in-game content, but I think this is cozy and old-school, so I’m not mad about it.
If your heart was broken by "All or Nothing," this might provide the tiniest balm for your soul. It's a passion project intended to give you an intimate window into what some of our characters are thinking about. Let us know if you like this format! https://t.co/WzFU5d0r1I
