It was the day of my first real hunt. My brother and I ventured to the Arundon Vale far north of Hoelbrak. We engaged some grawl, but they were no problem for us. We were looking for a challenge, so we marched farther north. Some time later we found ourselves in a canyon of ice. It was quiet and we wandered through the labyrinth of endless icy corridors. We arrived at a large crossing when we heard heavy footsteps coming from the path before us. A giant corrupted Minotaur entered the crossing and instantly charged at us. It crashed into the wall behind us and caused the collapse of the corridor behind us. With no way back, we were forced to fight the mighty beast. It was a long and tiresome battle. We were exhausted and our moves became slower until my brother could not dodge the icebrood's attack and was smashed against a wall, his body lying lifeless on the ground. Fury and sorrow over my brother's death overcame me and with the last ounce of strength I charged at the beast, only to get slashed by its claws and collapse on the ground. My vision was blurry. I saw the beast coming for me, when suddenly it was tackled from the side by a big white stag. While the two were fighting each other, I dragged myself to my brothers body. I had lost a lot of blood and knew, that my wound was deadly. I took my brothers hand and soon after lost consciousness.
When I awoke, I felt strange, like I was not myself or at least not only myself. When I saw my dead brother next to me, I realized, that my own wound was gone. I got up and found both, the white stag and the icebrood beast lying dead in the snow. You saved me, I thought kneeling next to the dead stag, I know you saved me, I can feel it. I took the stag's antlers, I knew he would have wanted it, because I felt, he was now a part of me. He had brought me back to life, by sacrificing his own and we would now live as one.

Hey guys :)
This is the new look of my guardian. The central piece is the stag helmet, which I always wanted to use. I aimed to create a heavy armored look with a mystical feeling while also keeping some norn elements.
When the heart of the mist got it's new look, I knew it was the perfect location for the look and therefore spent the rest of the patch day with getting my WvW ticket cap full to get the triumphant hero's pants, so I could start taking screens^^'

Shoulder: Houndskin Mantle
Dyes: Icing, Celestial, Glint's Sanctuary

Well, hope you like her :)

DAMN that title screen!
And omg, the whole look is just SO amazing from the way her face is framed with the helmet and tattoo to the many different styles of armour that come together perfectly
The dyes are very monochromatic, yet perfectly chosen and your presentation is on spot
I always love seeing a post from you, because they are always perfection!
Gold all the way!

To me the helmet frames her eyes and those tattoos are so so striking. Love the way the leggings go so perfectly with the boots as well :) Screens are stunning and I really get that clear mountain air vibe from them. Gold

Well, of course this look is not an exception, another gold! XD
First of all, the presentation is perfect.
The story is pretty good, I found it interesting.
The armor combination is really well done because nothing looks strange or exagerated when every armor piece are together, they all seem realistic.
I love the idea you had of using those weapons with the Stag helm as Kenny says. Also I like the mix with the helm and the shoulders, as it "hides" the baldness that the helmet causes, plus it looks pretty amazing, even more dyed on white colors, because most of the looks with those shoulders that I have seen were black or brown.
The screenshots are very well done aswell.
By the way, at the start, when I saw the main image, before reading who made this look I would have swear that it was Acethyle! XD

Well, I say it again: GOLD!

Your screens are so amazing :) Armor mix looks great and I really like the tattoo + white eyes, which add a bit supernatural effect. Gold from me too.

I actually thought that the new pvp lobby would be the holy grail for all nornish looks and you really made the best out of that location!
Aditionally to your screens i just love the stag helmet! its one of my fav skins for heavy armor!!! And you have the same face-tattoo that my guard has, sooo ... thats a hell lotta bonus points xD (not that you would need them xD)
Perfect nornish look with perfect nornish screens, max sliders!!!!

Thank you Eremite! The main screen was a real coincidence. I was just taking some screens for testing out the new location, so I was really staggered myself, when I found it in my screenshot folder :)

This is great! Kenny was right about the Etched Weapons matching the horns, but the Bow of the White Hart would also match, at least thematically, and I bet it would match visually as well.
