A beat. In the middle of the night surrounding me I could only feel this soft beat. Regular, incessant knocks. Suddenly a flash, a great light extremely intense blinds me. The birds’ song rang in my ears, the wind was blowing against the bark of my face and the sun was warming my body up. And once again darkness, black, bulky, oppressive, almost palpable. Something warm was running on my torso and went down my hips. Finally a pale, purple glow shined in the darkness. Blood was running on me, it was dripping from the atrocious vines surrounding me. Blurred and tortured faces were reflecting in the scarlet ocean. Screams and tears echoed against the roof like an anthem to fear.

While I was sinking in this lethal trap slowly, strong arms dragged me out of hell. I felt like I was falling, I didn’t knew where I was but I still could feel the arms around me and a presence behind me. I turned over and saw his face, pale and smooth. Two big onyx orbs was staring at me. His eyes was so dark that I couldn’t distinguish the pupil in it. Though they were cheering and gentle… For the first time I felt good, I was calm, our breathing was synchronized, then he get nearer to my face and everything turned black again.

Hi everyone !
Here's a new set of screen for my mesmer sylvaris, Awmn. He's related to my warrior that you can see here :
They have a beautiful story (imo) and I'm sharing a little part of it with you. Hope you'll like it.
I tried something really "sylvaris-like" because I love cultural armors on sylvaris. It's probably my favorite race because of how the colors and how they match easly. Also the story is a translation of what I wrote in french, I really hope there's not too much mistakes, if you notice something big just tell me and I'll correct it.
Have an awesome day as always ! :)


I love the screenshots! I just miss one from behind ^^ I love the last one before the character selection one.
The armor combination may not be the most original but the dyes are very cool aswell!
The only thing I hmmm "dislike" is the pink flowers from the head, but it is just a little detail.
Anyways, good job! ^-^

Your first screen is fantastic, and I appreciated right away that you were trying to pull in Nightmare pink/purple for you character with the second screen. I love the pink leaves in his hair, and touches to his clothing; its a nice brightness in his dark countenance. I also love how the necro mask looks on sylvari and am always happy when I see it used.
Thanks for posting!

As said before the armour combination isn't the most original one but the dyes certainly make up for it! I didn't even know the Demon masque would look that great on a Sylvari!

I wish the pink petals would be more violet or purple even to accentuate your armour and weapons and a throwback to the Demon Masque's yellow tint wouldn't feel out of place either. ^^

The screenshots are beautiful although we hardly get to see that vine you cultivated! ;)

Other than this amazing presentation of a beautiful Sylvari!

I love it!
The sylvari armor looks amazing with these dyes and the mask fits perfect.
Screens and story are so cool! Gold alone for your presentation and of course for your beautiful look, too.

I don't give a dang how much cultural armor you used. That story and your screens are fantastic! Gold from me!

Thank you very much ! I personally like the pink touch, because it kinda looks like a cherry blossom but I get your point :)

Fantastic dyes and screens here, you put enough thought into the whole presentation that I can forgive the kinda overused armour mix (and besides, it´s not like there would be so much alternatives for plant-like armour anyways)
Have my gold ^^

Beautiful dyes! While cultured armour is always very limited and mostly leaves a character with a not so orginial look it's always important to have a nice dye job and you succeeded here big times! I really like how you captured the essence of the weapons it's just lovely.
One think I don't really like are the Orchid Leggings but that's just a small compaint!
The screens are absolutely gorgeous your character looks really outstanding here.
Gold from me :3

honestly, things like overused combos & limiting yourself to cultural armour doesn't bother me at all. if you like the look you created and it fits your character, go for it! the dyes are super pretty and the screens are gorgeous. a gold from me c:

Interesting story and I like the dyes but like some others have said it would be nice to have some accents to help pull it out of the really dark give it a bit of contrast. Yes the armor is a bit over used but I mostly see it on female sylvari. It's nice to see a male light armor. Bringing in some colours from the vine would be cool too. But otherwise a very nice armor and I'd love to see this other half to your story with the other character

Simply beautiful. The colors are so nice and the screens are gorgeous ! I don't care if it's only cultural armor because I love your character :) Gold! ^^

Thank you very much ! :)

Thank you, the problem with the colors is that there's only three spots and I can't add more dyes, and changing one change everything or nothing, because t3 is a mess to dye x_x
I'll post soon the other side of the story, hope you'll like it too :)
