* In GuildWars Factions the Dragon Festival has a reinactment of the Nightfall invasion during the first ingame Dragon Festival and the reinactment requires actors dressed as Naga to stage a paniced mass exodus of Naga into Kaitan Village like the real Naga did during the Nightfall invasion to escape said invasion. As one of the gaurds in charge of the reinactment reveals when you reach her at Kaitan Village: the ''real'' Naga had decided to raid Kaitan Village presumably killing the actors playing them before attacking everyone else while the actors playing the part of the demons that drove said Naga out during the previous Dragon Festival take their places in the Naga's den unaware of the Naga attack(nor are the Naga aware that actors had moved into their den during said Naga raid either).
