This is a Vanguard: SoH Fan Site (really)

Look what I found, cleverly buried in one of the NPC speeches in Guild Wars!

Product Placement

Obviously, that’s bought-and-paid-for product placement for the (maybe someday) Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. See how sneaky they were in hiding the S O H??

Man, this is how the hype starts: subliminal advertising — next thing we know, we’re preordering and using character calculators to map out our skills. DAMN THOSE MARKETING DEPARTMENTS!

Or, it could just be a coincidence.

    Or it could be because thats the name of the group charged with defending Ascalon?

    O my god I never saw it before. I played guild wars for months and I pre-ordered Vangaurd without a second thought. They’re in my head fuck what am I going to do… Oh wait I bought it because I’m addicted to EQ sorry Berk must be right.
