I’ve been sitting on this info since November, but I can finally tell you all about the amazing ending to my adventure. Sure, sure, technically it ended at 11am on 11/11/11, but for me the real amazing ending happened about a week later – when I walked into the doors of ArenaNet to meet the people who created a world that helped inspired my adventure in the first place.
We were invited in, given a tour of the (really really beautiful) studio by the Community Team (sans Martin, who sadly wasn’t in that day) and generally treated to a wonderful afternoon. I got to meet people I had been following online in person for the first time. And it was so cool to meet the people who inspired me and to find out they had been following my adventure and that I in turn had inspired some of them!
It was the absolute perfect ending to an amazing adventure. A year earlier I was sitting in my apartment playing Guild Wars and lamenting about the lack of adventure in my life, and then there I was after having an epic journey actually meeting the people who created Guild Wars. My life was certainly not lacking anything in that moment.
And to add to the super coolness of it all, I am now in Guild Wars 2. My mind is still blown by that. ArenaNet has a blog entry all about my NPC (Non Player Character, for those not in the know) and our adventure. You should definitely go check it out: Meet Ameranth
