This year, Chronicles of Tyria is celebrating its fifth anniversary of existence within the Guild Wars 2 community. It all started in 2012 before the release of the game with the story of Naveen, and our team has been growing ever since.
From Alucardalina’s distant past to Kaede’s undercover mission for the Order of Whispers, our adventurers have been fighting the Inquest, dealing with their forgotten past as a Heartless and tried to protect an ancient artifact. Elder Dragons have pushed some out of their homelands, while others have been avoiding dealing with their past.
Our seven writers have been sharing their stories and adventures in Tyria with you for several years, and now its time for you to share how creative you can be with us.
In collaboration with Arenanet, we were given a ton of GW2 gear to share with you guys to celebrate this milestone.

NA/EU Contest (Physical Prizes)

A roleplay moment you had with some guildies? An original scene between characters? BE CREATIVE! But keep it short! It needs to fit in the comment)

- The comment section will close on May 18th at midnight EDT.
