I am new to this forum , so please direct me to other threads if i have missed those
that already discuss this subject.
First off the "Human Gods"
According to the human history they "created Tyria"
However on closer examination of the actual lore book from GW:P
It was almost three thousand years ago that a race of serpents stepped out of the Rift onto the soil of Tyria. Unlike ordinary serpents, these moved upright, used language, and adhered to an elaborate culture. They had been summoned by the old gods, brought to this world to be the custodians. Their task: shepherd the other creatures of the land through this time of transition, while the gods continued to create the world around them
It is stated that tyria either already existed or they were change it.
It does not directly state that they were the creators.
It further states in the lore book of GW:P that the Humans were the first
and only Race to rise to providence and not adhere to the benevolent teachings of the Forgotten.
From the Tarnished Coast in the west to the Bay of Sirens (now called the Sea of Sorrows) in the south, from the far eastern reaches of the Crystal Desert to the Giants' Basin on the northern coast of Kryta, Tyria flourished under the protection of these mystical creatures. The serpents were the protectors of the land, the keepers of knowledge, the teachers of all things, and during their time the world was in balance.
Through the various Scriptures and the fact that the custodians(Forgotten) Summoned from the rift by the gods were not aided by these same gods during there push out of the world of tyria by humans. We now all "assume"
that humans are the Chosen race of these gods.
Now for the actual question to these pieces of "Human History" that make no sense at all given what we know about guildwars 2 and the Eldar Dragons.
First off the Problem of the Char as an atheist race.
If they existed before the the humans arrived on Tyria 205 BE
then over they coexisted with the forgotten who also spread word about the
"Gods" and since the Lore guides of GW:P "reads"/suggests" that humans
human were the first to "Defy" the forgotten and there teachings by making there own ways.
Second The slight paradox of the Elder Dragons.
Why would the gods create beings other then themselves
who are capable of not only destroying there chosen race
but also the world they have created over the course of millennia?.
To answer this apparent conflict i draw 3 possible conclusions.
1 What we know up to know was Human history and only a small glimpse
of Tyrias general history.
Or ( and please be open minded )
2 The dragons are in fact extra dimensional beings similar to the Human gods.
Now first Read Page 334 to 340 of the Pocket version of Edge of Destiny
the few pages before the chapter Dragon Rise.
In here Glint states that "3000 years she was Set here as a custodian of the world ( Tyria ) . Hmm what do we also know about +- 3000 years ago?
Ah yes the Forgotten were summoned from the rift. (Assuming Human history is fact)
She then tells our good heroes that she has infact already lived through at least One Awakening of the Eldar Dragons. Now knowing that these are very hungry critters so to speak you'd think that we would have some lore detailing mass extinctions 3000 years ago, we dont (I say 3000 years ago because thats when glint supposedly arived on tyria).
So if this has happend before were is the evidence?
3 Human History is True and false in the fact that the Human Gods created Tyria.
Again this is going to be a long shot but hear me out.
The Dragons were last awake at the time of the extinction/dissaperence of the Giganticus Lupicus at 10000 BE. The dragons Ate them giving proof
of a mass extinction event ( and certainly giving them a full belly ).
The world was then barren over the course of the next 7000 years
at wich point the human Gods step in from the Rift and take matters in there
own hands. Thus creating the world as the Humans know it but knot being the ultimate creators of the World.
I was going to tie in the dwarvens but as so little concrete is known about them i reather not pull any more longshots ( as i think i have reached my limet for quete a while )
