Guild Wars: Eye of the North Region Profile - Rata Sum

We're Asura You're A-Gonna Like Eye of the North

Okay, that was bad, but my punny bone is broken. At any rate, if you're craving more information on the upcoming Guild Wars expansion, Eye of the North, is delivering a series of three features designed to grab your attention. The second is a Region Profile on Rata Sum and the Asura, who inhabit it:

The Asura of the Tarnished Coast are a brilliant, if diminutive, people who dwelled, until recently, within the Depths of Tyria, where they regularly dealt with Dwarves, Dredge, and other underground races. However, a dangerous race from even deeper within the world--the Destroyers--overran their subterranean homes, forcing them to the surface. Now, the Asura must learn to survive in a hostile, strange, and all-too-brightly-lit world. Still, the surviving population is of two minds--half of them long for a return to their underground empires, while the other half believe their former lands are lost forever, that their future lies among the strange races of the surface world.
