Divinity's Reach is full of giggling crazies and other observations

27 August 2012 - 12:34 PM

Caveat:  This post is meant in fun.  :)

So my little human thief was exploring DR last night, collecting waypoints and checking out vistas, and she began to notice a common sound: laughter.

A lot of laughter, in fact.  Of course it's a big city with a lot happening, but there seem to be a lot of people there giggling wildly for no particular reason.  A child running past is certainly prone to laugh, but a fully armed and armored Charr warrior somehow doesn't inspire laughter in me.  Yet when one such Charr passed my thief in the street he was accompanied by insane cackling followed by some the voice of some random dude going "HEY!  HEY!  HEY!  HEY!  HEY!!!"  It's unsettling.

Then there's poor old Halan Frohmanj.  Have you met him?  He's an elegantly dressed fellow who strolls up to a young woman he doesn't know and seems to begin hitting on her.  He only succeeds in confusing her with his complex Elonian name, however, then ambles off to pursue his studies while she mutters "Get some sunlight once in a while."

Just down the street from this a Norn vendor is threatening to violently demonstrate his wares, much to the alarm of a bystander.  He also assures everyone within earshot that he is, in fact, crazy.  And all the while the phantom giggling resonates all around the city.

So what's up with these poor folks?  Are they going stir crazy from being cooped up in their magnificent city by centaurs and dragons?  


Gate of Madness: A Facebook page for the (slightly) deranged!

22 August 2012 - 08:04 PM

Having finally settled on a server (awesome name!), my friend and I were searching for a FB page for it...we know some of the other server communities have these.  We did not find one that was open to the whole server population, so we decided to start our own.

Gate of Madness is open to all.  We hope it can help us organize some in game events and even coordinate times for WvWvW.  And, of course, we're looking forward to making some new friends along the way!

The page can be found here:


All are invited, all are welcome!


Game client and beta client, are they different?

20 August 2012 - 10:54 PM

I had seen this mentioned on another forum and asked a friend just now about it...turns out we're both uncertain.

Is the client we've been using for the GW2 betas and stressed the actual game client?  Or is the game client a separate download?

Our thanks, in advance, for clarification.


One thing I'd like to see nerfed...

11 August 2012 - 01:20 PM

...crafting criers!

While exploring Rata Sum last night I felt I was being stalked by this annoying little NPC.  Every time I ran through a doorway on the lower level there'd she be, flailing her arms and shouting about broadening my mind.  I wanted to broaden her nose.

I get the picture, but can't they just hang out quietly in a corner and speak up when you approach them?  Even the NPC's who need you to protect X from Y don't chase around after you.

A little thing, I know, but had to get it off my chest.


The Happy Birthday Rubi thread!

24 July 2012 - 08:33 PM

I'm dismayed to see that there is not yet a "Happy birthday Rubi" thread, so I decided to make my own.

Hope you are having a wonderful birthday thus far, Rubi.  We are proud of you, and hope you are enjoying many inflated wing wings of cake!
