Guild Wars – Lore
You can download the Guild Wars manuscripts from the website. Prophecies have two books and it explains what happened prior to the release of the game and how it all started. The other manuscripts are an overview of the characters and basic story.
I definitely recommend reading the prophecies manuscript. I have saved copies to my google drive, here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-deTB…2E3cVdsbTg
But if you don’t like reading you can watch other peoples overview of the lore on the below videos.

Tyria, not to be confused with the continent of the same name, is the name of the planet on which most of the Guild Wars series takes place. It is the home of many sentient species, such as the humans, Asura, Dwarves, and Norn, among others. The timeline places its age over 11,000 years old, when the Giganticus Lupicus last roamed the world, however, the earliest known human life did not appear until 786 BE. There are three known continents (Tyria, Cantha & Elona) and an unknown amount of unexplored ones. Beneath Tyria runs a subterranean network of tunnels, linked by the Asura Gates.
