Introduction Thread and Thread of No Topic 2

And yeah, you can make a new thread, but its probably best to just search wiki since most of that information's been put up on the god pages (for Dhuum and Abaddon, the info got put on GWW since they don't have GW2W articles yet). Other than graves and a couple ghosts, not much info is gleaned about GW1 NPCs. Same with heroes, actually.

I thought something along the lines of some Elonians bringing Harpies along with them (traders or refugees), but why would they do that? Harpies aren't known for being the most cooperative creatures so why bring one with you on a long voyage to the north? This is just a little thing, but it's been bothering me for a while.

So maybe the humidity isn't a factor, but:
The harpies in Vabbi would be carrion feeders, like vultures, since they live in a desert environment. Probably not easy to find dead animals to feed on as the land became more jungley. And I'd imagine those insects, termites I think would find it easier to get at the carcasses than the harpies. What with all the dense jungle.

The air density could be a problem when passing mountains but I'm having an impression this discussion is slowly turning into "how could a swallow carry a coconut from Africa to Britain".

I suscpect that this will be either the place were Canach hides, or were we fight the Karka Queen.

Any chance you can mark just where on the map the cave opening is so we can see if we can reproduce your friend's break-in?

On the second pic, it's the way to the rigth, were the dead player lies. I couldn't go closer because I was overrun by Karkas, but that should be enough to reveal the location.

*ponders whether it would be best to try that with a mesmer for using reflects on karka, or a thief for more stealth - guardian would probably be better for fighting karka, but is lacking in teleports*

In other news (and why I'm double-posting rather than editing, so people can see there's a new discussion - I'll merge in a day or so) - we now have a bit more information about Lady Kasmeer. Apparently, she works for a private investigator in Divinity's Reach, which raises two questions.
First, is she genuinely on vacation in Southsun, or is she investigating something?
Second, is this the first appearance of someone who's going to be leading the investigation of whatever problem is going to arise for the next set of updates?
In continuing the speculation, the image we have of her shows an outfit that could easily be a form of scholar armour - I wonder if this is a hint as to her profession?

Unrelated question: Are the two planets on Meteorologicus both Tyria?

I have a question regarding possible lore inconsistency, or maybe lack of thought of the writers. Probably it's been asked before.
I was just exploring Fields of Ruin and while in Ebonhawke, at Gwen's grave it struck me (again) that she was a great-grandmother of Logan while the events of GW2 take place 250 years after those of GW1. I mean... some of the people are able to actually live at the same times their great-grandparents do. The difference of age between a great-grandparent and a great-grandchild is usually about, dunno, 80? That's with the assumption that a typical age for having kids is 25-30. How old must have Gwen (and her child and her grandchild) been when producing a new kid? A simple calculation indicates that around 70. No offense to grannies out there, but yuck!

The usual explanation is that it's a poetic license used because "great-great-great-great-great-grandmother" would just be too clunky to make good reading. It's the equivalent of someone referring to a distant relative as 'cousin' when what they really mean is 'seventh cousin, twice removed'. Basically, there are a few 'greats' that have been deleted to make it flow better (no, we haven't been told how many).
Mind you, 'ancestor' would probably have been a better term to use on both counts.
(For the record, incidentally, humans do age better on Tyria, probably due to beneficial effects of magic... but not by that much!)
