I sometimes do GW1 and GW2 lore research and stumbled across the first introduction ArenaNet made of Scarlet to players. Only a few select players was sent the below item:
Yes, the players were sent that particular pocket watch. I don't know any information on the people this watch was sent to. However, the poem that was written (supposedly) by Scarlet is very interesting. If you can't read the poem this is the text from the letter:
Tick tock goes the clock It’s almost time for time to stop Something you all must understand Your world is built on fog and sand
You’re out of time, your jig is done It’s time for Scarlet to have her fun She has some hard lessons to teach To the people of Divinity’s Reach
So mark the date in permanent ink The hour is later than you think On the twentieth day she’ll start her games And warm her hands over Kryta’s flames!
There is a lot of lore in the lines, "Something you all must understand...Your world is built on fog and sand." Wasn't going to expand on that in this announcement but if you're interested in hearing more give a shout out by replying to this thread or TS3 or in game. Have fun everyone :D
