Dream & Nightmare

Dream & Nightmare - Guild Wars 2 - MMORPG.com

As Sylvari Week closes on the Guild Wars 2 blog, the final post has been published that gives a lot of historical background about the race. Called "Dream & Nightmare", the post details lore behind The Pale Tree, describes the Dream of Dreams, biology, the Nightmare Court and more.

The Nightmare Court are sylvari who embrace the darkest parts of their nature, relishing a terrifying nightmare that contains as much horror as the Dream holds inspiration. Their dark vigils are things of legend, filled with depravity, twisted courtliness, and sadistic tournaments that pervert sylvari chivalry. Their greatest ambition: to turn the Pale Tree to nightmare.

These sylvari reject the teachings of Ventari’s tablet and claim that the influence of outside races perverted the true nature of the Pale Tree and the sylvari. They seek the shadow within the Dream, turn away from what they deem false morality, and explore the darker side of their personality. Cold, cruel, and without mercy, they see themselves as true sylvari, untainted by the influence of Ronan, Ventari, and the lessons of the tablet. They consider it to be their noble purpose to bring others of their race away from that forced behavior and into darkness.
