Texts I have extracted will be transcribed and added here.


For days on end, my Desolation family,
my Tyrian family, my worldwide family,
we fought this wurm, we failed time and time again
with one little thing here and one little
thing there we thought we had it.
We thought that we could win
many a times we failed, many a times we almost gave up hope
we saw the darkness and almost fell victim to its torment
but No      Not on this day       This day we came together
this day   Friends     Family
heroes of all kinds from this wonderful world of ours
we came together and we defeated this
wurm that had tormented us for so long
triple trouble?! More like no more no more!
Bask in the glory!
Bask in the glory for we are the Heros of this day!

I say we build a port
of our own. We build it, and
we defend it against
all. We make it a free
port, not beholden to
any nation, open to
anyone who sails
the sea. We'll teach
others how to fight
against Charr weaponry,
Asuran innovation, and Human courage."
"The port would be
open to any and all,
so long as they'll
fight against all
and help to keep
our waters clear."

Ventari's Tablet as seen in-game on the hovering druid skill itself.



Live life well and fully,
and waste nothing

Do not fear difficulty
Hard ground makes stronger roots

The only lasting peace
is the peace within your own soul

All things have a right to grow
The blossom is brother to the weed

Never leave a wrong to ripen
into evil or sorrow

Act with wisdom, but act

From the smallest blade of grass
to the largest mountain,
where life goes—so, too, should you.

These
monuments
commemorate those who gave
their lives to defeat the
elder dragon Zhaitan

Their bravery
kept Tyria free and shall
inspire countless genera-
tions to come.

Thanks to you, I had a

So bare with me on this one, folks.
As we all know, or at least those few people who follow up on "current events", there is a new bit where we have to remove propaganda posters that have been put up around Central Tyria.

I found some textures in the dat. file, that seem to be said sheets of paper.
However, since I stumbled upon this part of the achievement by accident, I didn't manage to get a good look. Sadly, the image wasn't in a higher resolution, making it impossible for me to read the fine print. However, I am able to make out the headline, which to be frank, is enough for most people when they read anything these days.  ;D

So basically I am just spitballing on this one.



So from left to right.
The rise of Orr
Bloodstone Invocation
Nightfall
White Mantle Conspiracy
Wrath of the Titans


The Bloodstone Invocation is obvious since the White Mantel wants to use the stone to summon their deity back to Tyria. At least according to some posts online, that said those things taken from the raid wings. #spoileralert ^^ #somethingWoodenPotatoeSaid

Nightfall is interesting too. It was the name of an entire campaign of Guild Wars 1 after all.
Let me quote Wikipedia on Nightfall here:

Quote
"Nightfall takes place on the continent of Elona in the Guild Wars universe. It follows the player's character as they join the Order of the Sunspears and uncover the desire of Warmarshal Varesh to return a long-forgotten god to the world through an event called Nightfall. The players, assisted by their hero allies, fight through civil war, ignorant Vabbi princes and Varesh's demon allies as they attempt to prevent the coming of Nightfall."
Guess we see a common theme here.

So what about Titans and Orr?
We know that
Quote
The Titans are demonic creatures created in the Foundry of Failed Creations by twisting tormented souls.[...](And that) Titans are said to obey the bearer of the Sceptre of Orr.

Those who followed the entire game lore so far know that the Foundry of Failed Creations is part of the so-called Domain of Anguish, which belongs to the Realm of Torment.
The same realm the player will enter in Nightfall due to some ritual etc. etc. etc.

We also know that the Sceptre of Orr, after it was found by the Great Necromancer Livia, was once used by Vizir Khilbron to control a freed titan to conquer Central Tyria.

Quote
After Khilbron's defeat at Abaddon's Mouth, the weapon was spirited away before it could be destroyed by the volcano. After the defeat of the Great Destroyer, the human necromancer Livia sought out and recovered the Sceptre and had it in her possession for some time.

So we can assume it is still existing somewhere.

My prediction on this one is that the White Mantle wants to find the Sceptre of Orr, or to create a similar as powerful weapon to summon titans from the Realm of Torment with the Bloodstone and seize control over central Tyria once more.
Which makes it even more interesting that the Raid Wings, that are after all full of White Mantle activities, are so close to DR.

Side note - ever noticed how the outline for Divinity's Reach looks like the bloodstone seal?!
Here a map to do just that http://guide.thatshaman.com/
