So I was watching the cinematic for Omadd’s Machine for the bazillionth time (What can I say? I think its a great cinematic moment) and I keep get a weird, niggling in my head when we see the map with the pale tree at the center.
The thought that keeps bugging me is this: the map seems similar to the one for Guild Wars’ Realm of Torment. I don’t think it’s exactly the same based on what I remember but I’m pretty sure its a similar layout. I really should check out the Realm of Torment map and compare it with what’s seen on Omadd’s Machine of the Eternal Alchemy. It’s probably just a similar thematic type layout but it might prove interesting to see if there is some subtle tie between the two. If there is that would be kinda awesome for those who love the lore and history of the Guild Wars franchise.
Inaugural image of the day.
The image just doesn’t do the chamber justice.
Really? You just had to make my norn guardian say “moot loot”? So much for trying to be badass. (Well, as badass as a level 24 guardian can be.)
Anet released a new vid their Guild Wars 2 YouTube Channel for the next episode of Season 2, The Dragon’s Reach, Part 1 set to start July 29. For the most part the vid is fairly typical fare but did have some interesting bits that have a number of GW2 fandom ablaze with speculation and talk.

I’m surprised to already have a request to see the full size version of the the Embertail’s logo so here it is…
I was going to try and finish of my Dry Top achievements tonight but between the headache from work and some unusual lag in game I decided I wasn’t patient enough to play tonight. So instead I turned to a project I’ve been mulling over for a short time.
Song: Super Human
Theme: Season 1 and Season 2 (Gates of Maguuma)
Theme (alt): A good old GW2 dance vid.
I’ve finally decided to actually work on a GW2 vid I’d been thinking about for a while. Don’t know if it’ll suck or not but I figure give it a shot. I’m actually of two minds for the video. One, a video that ties Season 1 and the beginning of Season 2 together. Two, a simple music dance vid with any instrument playing or dancing characters I can record in game. For the first one I still need to get some decent vids from the new Season 2 content. The second, definitely more vids of instrument playing and group dancing, hopefully I can coax some guildies and associates to participate.
I know I’m not the greatest at recording in game so we’ll see if my foray into music video fandom is a plus or a bust in the coming weeks.
