Writing the Sylvari

Writing the Sylvari - Guild Wars 2 - MMORPG.com

The Guild Wars 2 site continues Sylvari Week with a look at "Writing the Sylvari". As with other races profiled on the official blog, the text comes complete with the sounds of Sylvari life as well. The post takes readers through the creative process of creating Sylvari society and the keystones of Sylvari culture.

Sylvari arrive in the world fully grown. They emerge from pods that grow on the Pale Tree: a magical, sentient tree with its roots deep in Tyria and its branches in the Dream. They leave the Dream—a mystical place where sylvari memories are collected—and incubate in their pods, then emerge into the world. They bring with them a spectator’s understanding of how the world works, having witnessed aspects of it while in the Dream. Their first few days in the world are critical, and they’re met by mentors and other newly awakened who help them find their way.

Read more about writing the Sylvari on the Guild Wars 2 blog.
