'Guild Wars 2' Devs Donate Thousands To Fan Who Lost Her Home

Flora Hunsucker, who goes by the name "Siadina," is a big Guild Wars fan. She lost her home on December 13th thanks to a faulty dryer that caught fire and spread, according to Kotaku. She also lost everything in the home, including two of her pets. But, one thing did survive – her copy of Guild Wars expansion Nightfall.

When she posted the find on social media, Guild Wars developer ArenaNet reached out to help. It donated $3,500 to Hunsucker's crowdfunding campaign and sent her every Guild Wars game and a t-shirt.

"It was a magical thing opening that up an seeing all my beloved games," she tells Kotaku. "That's not to mention the t-shirt and the swag bag. All of these were signed."

Hunsucker's GoFundMe has already exceeded its $5,000 goal thanks to ArenaNet the Guild Wars subreddit.
