A new Guild Wars 2 post looks at Ryland Steelcatcher. Warning: spoiler alert.

The post is written by Kwan who is a writer on Guild Wars 2. Kwan is the lead writer of Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire. The post dives into Ryland’s character and describes who he really is. The post starts with a look at what happened during Whisper in the Dark,

“During the events of “Whisper in the Dark,” we learned of the unfortunate fate of Almorra Soulkeeper but not the events that led to it. Now you’ll get to see what transpired after the Sons of Svanir took her hostage and how her story intersects with Ryland’s mission. Almorra is a beloved character at ArenaNet, and we always intended to give her a proper send-off. Memorable moments for General Soulkeeper await.”

The Eye of the North is also getting fleshed out. This was a result of brainstorming with the team to generate new ideas,

“The entire idea came together naturally when we knew that we wanted to establish the Eye of the North as a hub location, which allowed us to bring back the Scrying Pool. That possibility space allowed us to be a bit more experimental in both design and narrative.”
