Protector of Tyria

Ok, I will now disclose why I was so happy and which is my second reason for writing this blog (kind of).

There mioght be some of you who don't know, but I'm an addicted Guild Wars player. Guild Wars is a MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game -> quite a mouthful). With the release of the Guild Wars: Factions expansion set, players are rewarded for certain achievements with different titles. Some are easier to obtain, others are quite hard.

As you can see in the image, my character, Arkon Darksoul, has earned the Protector of Tyria Title. This means that I've completed all the missions and bonuses in Guild Wars: Prophecies (the original game). Though this might not sound as a big deal, it involves a lot of work (and game hours). Sometimes you just can't find an appropriate party for that painfully difficult bonus...

Some might argue that I shouldn't be all over a game like this, and that this entire post is nonsense, to them I say exactly the opposite: if I must "waste" a lot of time in front of the PC playing games, I might as well enjoy it's few pleasurable moments.

First Post

I've decided to create my own blog after having read that of my brother a lot. I thought it would be fun, so here goes (since I created an account on to comment my brother's posts, I thought I might as well post here).

I've chosen this particular day, 31 May, to start a blog out of 2 reasons:

1. It is the birthday of one of my dear friends, namely Ioana Mihalache (the girl in the middle of the picture). She is a very sweet, smart and kind girl, and deserves a mention in this blog. Happy Birthday, Ioana!

2. I have achieved something very important today, but I will talk about it more tomorrow (to insure I have topics to post, I will not exhaust them all today).

Those who know me can already imagine the possible future contents of this blog, so stay tuned and enjoy!
