Guild Wars 2 Wristband

Huzzah!  Guild Wars 2 comes out today!

If you're as excited as I am, you have a list of the names for your characters, their race, their biography choices, their profession, and their two crafting professions.

Charrlie's also excited about GW2!

My main character is going to be a female charr, named after a deity for a minotaur/demon like race I created for a book I wrote, and she's going to be a necromancer!  Why?  Necromancers are awesome, and it relates to her role in the series.

BAM!


Anyway, I am amped about Guild Wars 2 (been waiting for it for at least two years).  And in celebration of the release, I created a wristband pattern for GW2.
