I grew curious as I read the thread about the name of the planet in which GW is based. So I was thinking, but do people here believe that the land of Tyria is where life first began.
Similiar to where we believe that life started in the middle east here on earth, though folks may argue it started in Africa, while some may think in the region of China.
Perhaps life did begin in Tyria, thus thats why the planet is called Tyria in relation to its region. From that region, it spread throughout the world of Tyria, south to what is now known as Elona, North to upland regions, than west unto what is now known as the shiverpeaks and Kryta, even to the now distant lands of Cantha.
It is even possible that the land mass which is now known as Canthan had broken off from the mainland of Tyria, throughout the millions of years.
