    haha well this is what I'm hoping, actually. I wrote this a while ago, as what I picture it would be like to be born a Sylvari:

    I could hear… it… whatever it was. Oh, this must be a heartbeat—my heartbeat, I thought to myself. What an unusual sound it seemed to make, though somewhere inside I knew it was supposed to be. I felt warm and secure. I felt like I had been in that serene dream forever, and yet it also seemed I had been everywhere else forever as well… however long “forever” truly is. “Hello, my darling…” came the soothing, comforting voice I had come to know, “…your time is almost here.” I wondered at those words as they echoed about in my very being. They sounded so crisp and cool, yet so gentle and warm at the same moment.

    Such peaceful joy seemed to resonate in those words. “I will miss you…” said the voice, a sudden change in mood. I shivered slightly from the chilling knowledge of what was to come once I was no longer part of my mother. However, she became confident and comforting once more, as she said “You will grow in strength and wisdom, and shall surely do great things.”

    I could feel a sudden energy flowing into me from her. “Now… go!” she said with a gentle eagerness, and I began to stretch my arms forward. The wall of the golden fruit began to break open, flooding the inside with sunshine. Fading, I heard my mother’s voice one last time. “I will love you always…” she said, growing fainter by the moment. With those words to spur me on, I continued pushing outward, breaking open the side of the fruit. As my eyes adjusted, I could soon see the world beyond my world—the world called Tyria.

    In-game, it would probably translate to something like this:

    The screen is black first. The sound of a faint heartbeat begins to emerge, and a small golden glow pulses in the middle of the screen in rhythm with the heartbeat. Suddenly, a voice that is a mixture of rushing wind, chimes, and a woman's voice (the voice would have a whispery tone) speaks gently, saying "Hello, my darling..."

    After a brief moment of silence (aside from the gentle heartbeat in the background), the voice goes on to say "your time is almost here..." The Pale tree is the one who decides gender, talents, etc. So it would be interesting if she spoke to you about the person you were briefly. For example "It is twilight now... soon you will be of Autumn, where crisp leaves form like golden crowns upon the face of the world. You are noble, my child... dignified in your ways." etc, continuing on regarding each choice the player had chosen in the biography (and perhaps showing images reflecting each choice). After saying all this and growing more and more confident in her voice, she suddenly becomes quiet again (and the screen goes black again, with the small pulsing heartbeat).

    After another brief moment she says (almost crying) "I will miss you..."

    Another moment of silence, then she says something encouraging to the character (again, perhaps pertaining to choices made in biography) and at this, golden cracks begin to form across the black screen. "Now... go!" she says in an eager tone, and the cracks begin to fill the screen rapidly, as the bright light begins to enter in. Just as the screen is becoming entirely white/gold, you hear the now-distant voice say "I will love you always..." Next thing you know, you are standing in the grove next to your broken fruit.

    Now as much as I would love for that to happen, I don't think it will be that elaborate. :D It'll likely be like the other intros we've seen... but I can dream, eh? ;)

    Oh! Also, what does this community think about the idea of "Branchlers"? On GW2Guru there are many who think it's a good idea, but I'd like to see what others think outside of that forum. :D "Branchlers" are Branch Antlers, for those who didn't pick up on it. ^^
