Guild Wars 2 Explorer: The Stranger Things of Tyria series

A while back I mentioned I was working on a new series for the Funcurve website. Well, it’s finally here as a 10 part exploration series for Guild Wars 2. In fact Part 5 just came out not too long ago, but you can find the rest of the series on the website here:

The idea is that of a photo journal with a narrative attached to it, along with both short video clips capturing the most intense fights and a link to the full live stream video on demand. The live streams air every other Monday at 8:30pm (if I’m not working) or 9:30pm., the finale airing Monday (6/13/2016).

I play Kat Omaly, a woman who sets out to document a mysterious dark energy coming emanating from the southern areas of Queensdale. Braving centaur attacks and wild beasts, she comes to learn the Shadow Behemoth in Gods Lost Swamp is just the beginning of what could be the end of the world.

The VODs are up to episode 9 on my Youtube Channel, and I’ve taken advantage of the free level 80 instant upgrade for the Heart of Thorns expansion to help push the story into game content that might be more relevant to fans. These videos won’t have the story attached, as I usually play fast and loose when it comes to live streaming, but you’ll be able to see most of my game progress by watching these. When this series ends,  I would like to be able to pick it up again later, or apply the same concept to a different game.
