Last weekend was great fun as @tturbo and the rest of our years-old Guild Wars group jumped in to the most recent Beta Weekend event.
But now the event is done, and the wait continues for the *next* event, and I’m finding I need more of the world to explore.
So ‘a man has said’ that there are these Guild Wars 2 novels out there, which means I must check them out. And I did by downloading the first (from iTunes): Guild Wars: The Ghosts of Ascalon.
The Story So Far…
Actually it’s pretty good. Standard adventuring fare, but being published in 2010, brings many of the game improvements into the story-line. Guards have rifles. The world map has changed. They fear Dragons again.
I’m hoping we’ll see the introduction of the Engineer
Ok, it’s an eBook, downloaded from iTunes. Which means it’s got DRM. For me that’s a problem as I like to read on different devices. I prefer my Kobo, but occasionally will read on my iPad or iPhone, depending on the context.
Fortunately there’s a cool app that will easily remove iTunes DRM from most iTunes eBooks — and it worked like a charm — and I’m reading happily on my Kobo, slowly. I don’t want to rush through the book and *still* have to wait a while for the next Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend
