Shing Jea Sherman

Is "Shing Jea Sherman" (NPC inside and outside of Tarnished Haven a reference to "The Scribe" on the GuildWars.com website? "The Scribe is a weekly periodical that will share a few stories from within the game. Written by a traveling monastery scribe..." & "You'll probably see a few kudos to individual players, as well." He's both a traveling scribe from Shing Jea in Cantha and within the town he boasts about players achievements. Both support this theory. Magic User Magic Icon.jpg Talk 20:40, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Hiya Magic! No, Shing Jea Sherman is actually a reference to the animated series The Critic. From the conversation I had with one of our writers, he was initially intended to be a sarcastic character, but we decided to give him a more positive spin instead :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 02:09, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Inner Council Member Bolivar

Hi Emily, I was wondering if you would be able to confirm whether Inner Council Member Bolivar is actually a reference to an "alpha tester whose hometown was Bolivar". The issue is under disputation, so any sort of confirmation would be appreciated. Thanks. ~Celestia 02:45, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello Celestia! I checked with the team, and this doesn't seem to be the case. We don't believe the name is an intentional reference to anything. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 20:52, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for following it up Emily! ~Celestia 23:46, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
