    Is it going to follow Devona and Co.?
    I'm not one for signatures, but what the hell. I'll make a photoshop filler for in here soon.

    Guild Wars (My game of choice)

    Main Character- Riyel Tagima - Level 20 Rit healer (Legendary Survivor, trying to collect titles on him)

    Secondary Character- Everyone else. =0

    Ever need help on GW, I own all the campaigns and like to mess around, and help out newbie characters.

    Not sure. that's all info I've got. But I guess not, since it'll tell the story between both games. So that we know what happens after GW:EN and before GW2. That's so awesome

    And omg Omg OMG!

    They released M.O.X! I need to get on GW now! But my internet keeps dying out on me! =(

    EDIT: My bad, when I read trilogy, I thought you meant they were making books of Factions, Nightfall, and Prophs, initially along with a GW2 lore book.

    GW lore wasn't really all that interesting, I found WoW Lore to be much better.

    Reading about the history of 3 continents and what lead up to what happened fascinated me.

    And to be blunt, WoW has no lore, it's all static from Warcraft 3, they haven't done anything really exemplary yet, storywise.

    I found the lore of GW very interesting.
    The story feels very authentic, unlike many other lores of games. It's not all that fictional and has some parallels to our world's history. The bubonic plague from Cantha, for instance. Or the war between the nations in Elona is resembles the one between Israel and Palestine.
    And besides all that it feels actually 'real'. It's not all that childish. Neither is it as ridiculous gore-ish as AoC.
    Plus, the game has some 'logic'. The way the Sylvaries were/will be created is quite interesting, imo. And all the story is combined with a good story-telling, an epic soundtrack, a lot of ambiance and good graphics.

    They're not exactly "game books" per se, but the Forgotten Realms books that R.A. Salvatore has written are pretty good. I'm sure if they can find a good author for the series it'll turn out great.

    I think ArenaNet will choose some really awesome author for the books.
    The entire team is top notch. Daniel Dociu, for instance, is one of the best Art Directors in our time. The ANet employees are all experienced and in the business for a very long time. They sure would let the books flop. After all their a marketing strategy to gain a bigger fan base and more costumers.
