One Shots: Amidst the trees

While we don't often hear about Vanguard, there is still a passionate community that really likes this game. With opening areas like the one seen in the above image, you can guess at least one of the reasons they're fond of their chosen MMO. This lovely image comes to us from Sergei F. who gave us his thoughts on Vanguard and this area, so we're going to turn over today's One Shots to him. Remember, if you'd like to contribute your images and thoughts, send them in to us here at oneshots AT massively DOT com along with your name and the name of the game. On that note, we'll turn it over to Sergei:

I've been playing Vanguard: Saga of Heroes previously. Explored a little bit here, a little bit there. I've seen harsh dwarven lands in Thestra continent, barren sands of Lomshir and red rocks of dark elven land in Qalia continent. But I never visited Kojan landmass, except for the small piece of it in Isle of Dawn. So I started [an] all-new Wood Elf ranger named Antalisia (Halgar server) and decided to choose her home starting place at Ca'ial Brael. (Thanks [to] the devs there are 14 completely different starting locations apart from Isle of Dawn exist in the game!)
Well, I was really swept away by the magical beauty of the place. Beautiful trees, lush vegetation, nice color pattern. Complicated landscape. You really can feel the good design style and the hand of Keith Parkinson behind this.

This shot was taken in Shimmerlake Garrison, at the very beginning of the game. You will surely see this place when you will hit level 3.
