Hi guys,
Some of you might be aware of the appearance of a certain Dr Livingstone popping up over here and on our Facebook page.
Reckon its about time for the details of what all this is about.
Due to the unique nature of the Guild Wars 2 format and its level scaling and loot scaling:

http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Dynamic_level_adjustment

Its possible for us all to go to the lower level areas and encounter the events as a whole group.
No fighting over resources,a chance to find those low level rare crafting items that we might need(Oh Tiny Claws,how I hate thee!),and most of all a chance for us a a Guild to journey together uncovering waypoints,Vista's and places of interest.
This doesn't have to be done in a Raid group either,of course if we want to split up into parties that would be great.We can all pick a direction and head off there,meeting at waypoints and events as whimsy takes us!
The Rp possibilities for groups and Guild seems endless.
Each zone will be done until the whole map of the game world will be complete.Each of these mini adventures will take place on a Friday evening around 20:00 CET.There's no set groups and places,everyone is free to drop in and out with multiple characters as when they want.I certainly don't expect to complete a whole area a night so Brambline our brilliant GM has contructed a map for us to fill in as we progress,
All I expect is that we keep the RP values that we've grown with,even though we're not on an official server.
This will be a weekly event that will run every/most Fridays until we finish/get bored/dies a horrible death.
For this reason I'm hijaking two threads on this forum.One for OOC chat about the events and notifications, the other a RP thread for you good folk to write any stories you'd like about your character's time in these adventures.(You don't have to of course!)

For this reason I've created the avatar of Dr Lom Livingstone as an explorer of sorts,loosely based on this figure from British History

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr_Livingstone

The basis of these events (which will be RP events of course) is that he's petitioned to explore and catalogue the whole of Tyria for a Azuran version of a genebank/time capsule/museum in case of the Elder Dragons destroying the continent in which we as players reside.He needs US to help him in his travels and has joined the Elders under the agreement of Brambline that she will provide resources.

So pack your bags,get on your walking boots and arm yourselves.Its going to be a fine adventure !

Excellent idea, Jeplin!

20:00 CET is generally a little too early for me, though. I guess I'll join you when I can!

Great idea, I'll try to be there with my thief and backstab something. By the way, what are the loot rules? (Just kidding!)

Sounds like fun! I haven't explored that area yet.

I'm going out tomorrow, but if you guys are still on when I get back I'll join up.

Really looking forward to our adventures together! Just one more reason that Guild Wars 2 rocks!

I got the first map done and have edited your second post in this thread and inserted it. I hope that' ok :-)

For those still learning about this, we will "uncover" the map as we go along, starting with the lowbie areas and going up in order of level until we are finally and lastly exploring the level 80 areas together. At least unless Jep would like to modify the plan at some point. He's da creator and boss of this expedition and I'm just working as his cartographer *grins*.

But yeah, so Jep maybe if you could clarify on the plan for these folks, because something that came to mind was that if people are aware we'll start at the bottom and go up, they may just create characters specifically for this whole thing. So if we know, it will give folks a chance to roll those characters before we start tomorrow. :)

Oh and another thing Jep! It might be cool to start a whole new exploration themed photos folder in our facebook group which could have the adventure screenies in chronological order. We could upload each map as we go along as well. And to be of most use to people, it'd be good if the map could be uploaded in good time before the event starts. Like a day or two before.

Big hugs and thanks to Bram for working on the map above,beautifull work!

Yes this weeks plan is Caledon Forest,then week(2) Metrica Province..then week (3)
Queensdale then week (4) Plains of Ashford then week (5))Wayfarer Foothills and so on until the starter zones are complete.

Even though I will be present on all excusions there's no need for you to attend if you've already done the area and don't want to do it again on an alt (say you did one a few days ago).Drop into one of the weeks you want!

Thanks Jep! So if it's ok with you, I'll set up a photogallery for this event on FB so we can get this thing started in one concrete "address" in FB. Otherwise it will just be your posts floating around an getting lost in the spam :).

Here we go:

Jeplin if you could come up with a good description for this photo album, that'd be great. Something short and snappy that just describes in one paragraph what this is all about.

ALL ENDORSED TEES EXPEDITIONS ARE CANCELLED FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE

Doesn't mean you can't go off having adventures anyways!

Much love
Jep
