Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2 is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game in development by ArenaNet.

In the relim of Tyria there are many races to choose from like The once dominant humans of Tyria are in decline, supplanted from most of their land by natural disasters and war with the charr, who have finally reclaimed the last vestiges of their ancestral homeland of Ascalon from the humans. To the north, the norn, a proud race of Nordic hunters, have been forced south by the rise of Jormag, and in the west, the technologically advanced asura have been forced to establish permanent homes above-ground after the minions of the first dragon to awaken, Primordus, took control of the Depths of Tyria. Near the forests where the asura make their home are the sylvari, a new race who have appeared in Tyria in the last 25 years, unaffected by the difficulties that plague the other races but with some as-of-yet unexplained connection to the Elder Dragons.

Races

Humans

“…we fight for our homes, our Gods, and our Queen. Nothing can break our spirit.”

The humans of Tyria where once the most powerful race. Over the past three hundred years, they have lost much of their territory. Old enemies like the Charr and new enemies like the Elder Dragons that threaten the traditional human lands from all sides. Yet the human race survives,there soldier defending their remaining lands and maintaining the human spirit as they have for centuries. Their greatest city, Divinity’s Reach, shines as a beacon of hope for the people of Kryta and beyond–even those dwelling deep within charr territory. The human legends are indelibly imprinted on the souls of all the races of Tyria.

The charr

“With the roar of engines and the thunder of guns, we rip each day from life’s teeth.”

The charr of Tyria are a victorious race challenged by their own success. They have survived many defeats, oppression, and civil war. They have returned to there old land that they lost to the humans hunadrads of years ago. they have reconquered old fortress, and rebuilt their original homes. Their mighty fortres the Black Citadel, dominates the surrounding ruins of the human city of Rin, and their non-magical technology is the mightiest in the land. Yet despite their success the charr are still challenged by divisions among there people. they are also challenged by the power of the Elder Dragons, and the ghosts of their own victories.

The Norn

“If you are bold enough, your legend will live forever.”

The norn are a race of nine-foot tall Nordic-like warriors that currently inhabit parts of Kryta and the abandoned dwarven fortresses in the Shiverpeak Mountains. The individualistic norn live for the hunt, so their tracking, stealth and killing skills make them invaluable allies in any combat situation. The largest gathering of norn one can expect to find outside trading posts is in hunting parties that have united to combat a powerful foe.

Asura

“Brain, not brawn, will change the world.”

They may be small, But the Asura are a race of magical inventors that believe that there technology  is the future of warfare. These incredibly intelligent beings use their knowledge and skill with magic and crafting to assert their natural dominance. In the world of the asura, it is not the strong who survive, but the clever. Other races believe they should rule by virtue of their power and strength. but the Asura believe that they should rule with technology and brain power not with Virtue and strength.

Sylvari

“Evil threatens Tyria, but our Dream will guide us through darkness… to dawn.”

Long ago, a weary soldier planted a strange seed in the depths of the Maguuma Jungle. For centuries, the Pale Tree grew, branches arching over the forest, until at last–twenty five years ago–it bloomed, and the Firstborn stepped into the world. They were followed by their brethren, season after season of sylvari, wide-eyed with wonder and searching for purpose in this strange land. Shaped first by the Dream that nurtured them before they awakened, the sylvari now travel Tyria seeking adventure and their place in the world. They struggle to balance curiosity with duty; eagerness with chivalry; and warfare with honor.

Is the internet killing the newspaper?

Ever sins the news came on to the internet the newspaper is slowly begging wiped out because it is easier to look up the news than to go to the shops and buy a newspaper. Newspapers are in trouble. No-where more so than in America. The Boston Globe lost 50 million dollars last year and is projected to lose another 85 million dollars in the last year. Another of the world’s most respected papers The Christian Science Monitor announced that it was abandoning its print edition back in October last year.

ever sins the internet became available for every one the newspaper has suffered much over the years and I say this is a good thing with the newspaper it would tack time to get the news you would need to know and even then you had to go throw pages before getting to the article or page with the information you need. But with the internet you can look up the information that you need in seconds with little to no trouble. I think that for serosity to evolve the newspaper needs to die I mean why waste time and money on something that is old fashioned and is useless to people. With the internet if you make a mistake you can fix it in seconds but with a newspaper it can tack days to print a new batch of newspapers with the corrections. and the internet can hold much more information than a newspaper going in to much more depth and if something new happens in the world it will be on the internet strait away. it is time for people to move on the newspaper is a thing of the past that is slowing us down and the internet is the future and it will never die because you can change the internet and up date is but with the newspaper you can update it you can change the way it look but you cannot change the fact that it is still a newspaper that tack time to print and to Mack changes.

The Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. The series is filmed at Paint Hall Studios in Belfast, and on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Malta, Croatia and Iceland.

I Think that Game of Thrones Series is one of the best series ever made by HBO because of the ploys keep you wondering what will happen next. In the Game of Thrones series you never know what will happen you will never know if someone dies or someone new will come in to the story. What I think mack’s the series so good is the combination of action and drama in the story and in the TV show. another thing that mack the show and books so interesting is that there is no real bad guys  gust people that you mite realy hate and wish that they just die like Queen Cersei and  Joffrey Baratheon.
