Interested in an Internship at SOE?

http://vgplayers.station.sony.com/newsArchive.vm?section=News&id=444

SOE is currently looking to fill several intern positions on various teams. An internship at SOE is a prearranged learning experience designed to place students on a project that is relevant to their academic and professional goals. Interns will work as part of a team with people from many professional backgrounds while testing their skills working on a project. A mentor will be assigned to each intern, who will provide continual guidance and feedback until completion of the internship.

These are paid part-time positions (approximately 9 weeks in length) that provide invaluable real-work experience and offer students an opportunity to grow both professionally and personally as well as make tremendous networks for future career opportunities.

See all the intern positions SOE has available by going to SOE Career Opportunities.

Tomb Raiding

http://vgplayers.station.sony.com/newsArchive.vm?section=News&id=441

The Kojan continent is ripe with things for young adventurers to do. From your first steps on the sands of the Tanvu shores, you're already learning the ways of the Lao'Jin Knight, harnessing the power of Jin in both battle and life.

The Tomb of Lord Tsang is hidden within the north eastern hills of Kojan. Its stone walls were erected ages ago around a dense forest, and are still guarded by an army of defenders who keep an eye out and a blade ready for trespassers. If you're in the 18-22 level range, and have an eerie urge to go tomb raiding for legendary treasure, then Tsang's is a place you need to explore! (This is a brief walkthrough of the quest to obtain access to Lord Tsang's Tomb, and will contain "spoilers")

Valentine’s Day Q&A

http://vgplayers.station.sony.com/newsArchive.vm?section=News&id=437

February 14 th is the annual day for sending love, flowers, chocolates, candies and sweet nothings penned into overly expensive greeting cards. For those of you who had no idea Valentine's Day was this week, you can thank me later for saving your relationship (I also accept flowers, chocolates, and candies!)

Amongst the many of us on the Vanguard Team, we have plenty of experience dealing with this day of adoration! In order to help our players (and entertain them!) we're sharing some of our thoughts and memories on Valentine's Day.
