We did it. We finally did it. Scarlet Briar is no more. But let us rewind the story, let’s take a look at what has happened in the past year, what we found out about her alliances and her labs, and most of all: what is it that Scarlet saw that drove her into the person she ended up being? Whether you know the answers or not, our latest issue tries to bring a conclusion to the first season of the Living Story in a comprehensive way.
In this issue we’ll try to unravel as many secrets as possible, either from inside the game or from the developers themselves. We’ll start with a look at what Scarlet really saw and continue with a look at her labs and hideouts. Then, we’ll give a short summary of the main characters of Season 1 and offer you the most comprehensive recap of the Living Story you’ll be able to find around. We take a look at the various alliances Scarlet brought together, take a look at the damage dealt to Lion’s Arch and more!
