Notes[edit]

The tombstones located right outside the entrance to Azabe Qabar are written in New Krytan. This conflicts with Timeline which states "1071 AE: The Sinking of Orr." and Cultural Diffusion in Contemporary Kryta which states "the New Krytan alphabet was born. The year was 1105 AE." - 34 years after Orr sank.
  • There are 7 tombstones in total outside the entrance to Azabe Qabar. However, only two textures are used. "Grave of the Scrybe" is used twice, while "Here lies Tirzah" is used for five tombs.

Trivia[edit]

  • Scrybe is an alias used by ArenaNet developer Josh Foreman.
  • Tirzah, one of the names used on the tombstones, may be a reference to Tirzah (an NPC from Guild Wars), or Tirzah Bauer (one of ArenaNet's artists).
  • Azabe Qabar is Urdu for torment of the grave, a reference to the Islamic concept of the period following death but before the Day of Judgement.
