The Story Journal is a tab on the hero panel that tracks and displays character progress through the narrative of Guild Wars 2. The journal has section for the personal story and each season of the Living World. Each section is further divided into chapters and episodes for the personal story and Living World respectively. Each chapter or episode is further divided into a series of instances that are completed sequentially. To switch between stories or to replay an episode, simply select the story or episode in the journal. Incomplete stories will show a button to “Switch to this story,” while completed episodes will show a button to “Replay this episode.” These actions will replace your character’s currently active , and you will lose any progress you had made in the current chapter of that story. Please note the Personal  can not be replayed. While replaying episodes, you can progress through the episode as if you were playing it for the first time, following the objectives indicated by the green star map icon. Certain chapters that include achievements will always be available directly through a purple star  icon for characters that have already finished the episode at least once, allowing you to replay only the necessary part without the whole story. Several instances also offer direct checkpoints, both for replaying achievements and for a case of disconnecting. At character creation the player can choose different biographical information which will change aspects of what occurs during the story. This might include the social status of the character, their belief, or other things. Each race has different choices for their biographical information. The profession chosen will also have a minor effect. During gameplay there will be a variety of different decisions the player can make when they resolve different situations, resulting in splitting the storyline into multiple branches.
