An end to all things under the Sun.
When I responded to Dutch’s call for volunteers in a Guild Wars Guru thread, I’d have to say I was not expecting it to be the beginning of a project that would last close to a decade.
In that time, we’ve participated in the overthrow of the White Mantle, the love story of Gwen and Keiran Thackeray, the rise of the Ministry of Purity, the final defeat of the White Mantle (we think!), the deaths of two dragons, a god, and a lich, and raised a young dragon from the egg ourselves only to watch her die before our eyes. And that’s to say nothing of the trials and tribulations that have occured in what most call the real world, whether on the larger world stage, the Guild Wars community, or the personal lives of our staff.
It’s been a wild ride, with ups and downs aplenty. In that time, I’ve made contacts and gained experience I probably would never have had otherwise. Looking back makes for a bittersweet feeling – it’s sad that it’s time for it to end, but despite the odd hiccough, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished thus far.
While the team has had discussions about where to move on from here, I can’t predict at this stage what form the final result of those discussions might take or when they might see the light of day. In the meantime, we’ll see you in-game!
