In the last part of the Sylvari week, Ree Soesbee gives us insights into the origin, culture, the biology, and dreams and nightmares of the Sylvari race, and the Pale Tree. It starts like this:
The sylvari are the youngest race in Guild Wars 2, awakened with the rise of the new age in Tyria. They may be unfamiliar with the world, but they have dreamed of it, and they share a rich and compelling vision that guides their path. From the day of their awakening, each sylvari feels called to defend the land and fight the Elder Dragons. They are united in this purpose beneath their mother, the Pale Tree.
Interspersed are glimpses of beautifully written narration. Head on over to the blog post to read the rest.Read more & comment >>
The second article covering the Sylvari has been released. Angel McCoy gives an insight into design of the lore for the Sylvari.

The first article on the week-long coverage of the Sylvari has just been released. Kristen Perry discusses the thought processes and challenges on the design and redesign of the Sylvari. She writes that:
Thereâ€™s one big root to the design direction of the Sylvari that I hold most dear: it all must stem from anatomy. However, researching this design proved to be very tricky. It seemed that most images of plant people fell into one of two categories: painted humans with leaf accessories or outright plant monsters.
Head on over to the article to both read about the changes and view the first pictures of the Sylvari. Then share with us what your thoughts are on the new redesign.
P.S.: Thanks goes to Alaris who first posted the surfacing of this article here on the site.
This is the one many of you have been waiting for, Sylvari week! From next Monday ArenaNet will kick off their special Sylvari week.
Beginning this Monday, the official ArenaNet Blog will focus on the race most recently introduced into the world of Tyria, the plant-born Sylvari. As a race that has recently emerged, the Sylvari are still finding their place in the world. But as fast learners in the ways and cultures of Tyria, the Sylvari will play a prominent role in the events about to unfold in the upcoming story of Guild Wars 2.
With the Sylvari being on show at Gamescom in just over a week’s time this is a nice teaser for people who are going to check the game out at the show.
