The Guild Wars Wintersday festival is almost at its climax. As such, I thought I’d tie up a loose end in the storyline. We can’t have our hero running around in a Yule Cap, not after New Year’s Day. It’s a fashion faux pas. Lost In Ascalon #36 brings Tank’s deranged journey to an abrupt end. I found it interesting that Cantha doesn’t have an outpost or city with a Christmas theme to it. Kamadan, Lion’s Arch, Droknar’s Forge, and Ascalon City are the places to visit for Wintersday action. So, what better place than Cantha to host episode #36?
ArenaNet has been quiet… too quiet. Where’s all the information about Chapter 4? That’s when I decided to kick things into “Competitive Intelligence” mode. For those of you that don’t know about CI, it’s ethical information gathering. It’s different than espionage. James Bond I’m not. While I own a Tuxedo, I doubt I could talk my way past the front desk of ArenaNet HQ.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Photics.com. Are you having a good day off? I’m using this time to work on the site. But before I dive heavily into XNA game development, I thought that I’d share with you the spoils of Christmas! Plenty of businesses depends heavily on holiday sales. A good shopping / spending season is a way to judge the strength of the economy. I know that I spent WAY more than I usually do.

There must be obvious side effects with consuming tremendous amounts of Dwarven Ale – and then dying. Tank is afflicted with Resurrection Sickness. This is not the usual 15% death penalty. Tank is experiencing something more intense. While Tank’s body might have been resurrected, his mind didn’t make it all the way back. In a special three-page edition, Episode #35 of Lost In Ascalon illustrates the situation. See if you can keep up with the mistaken Guild Wars references. Meanwhile, Photics is still searching for Gwen. In such a delicate world, can our hero afford the time necessary to verify Tank’s claim?
