Ghosts of Ascalon Novel Announced - MMORPG.com

According to an announcement released by NCsoft today, Guild Wars is finally getting the novel treatment. Ghosts of Ascalon, which is being written by acclaimed authors Jeff Grubb and Matt Forbeck, will be the first novel based on the Guild Wars IP, and will serve to bridge the 250 year gap between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2.

A brief description of the novel is available below:

Scheduled for release in North America and Europe in the summer of 2010, Ghosts of Ascalon takes place in the dangerous land of Tyria, the setting of Guild Wars. A mismatched band of adventurers, each plagued by ghosts from their pasts, journeys into the haunted, war-torn kingdom of Ascalon to retrieve a sacred relic that holds the promise of peace between humanity and their ancestral enemies, the savage charr. But not everyone wants peace, and the undead king who rules Ascalon won’t give it up easily!
