    Default Talk of Telara - #1

    Welcome to the first installation of Talk of Telara! So, what is Talk of Telara exactly? In short, it’s all about you, the RIFT community! We have such a diverse and talented community here, and want to regularly highlight some of the cool things our members are currently doing, as well as community news. Talk of Telara will be posted on the official RIFT forums every other Wednesday.

    Without further ado, onward to the fun stuff!





    If you haven't heard, the folks over at deviantART are running a really cool RIFT: Create a Collosus Contest that we encourage everyone to check out. They have some awesome submissions so far, but it's not too late to submit your own creation and have a chance to scoop up some of the great prizes deviantART has up for grabs! Check out the contest page and all the details here.





    We have some very talented and creative people in our community, as seen by some of the great RIFT creations in our Fan Art and Fan Fiction forums. If you weren't selected this time, please don't fret! We'll be selecting new offerings every two weeks. Enjoy!


    Fan Art

    We always love to see the RIFT fan art our community members create! This time, we have fan art from typrop, Farorei, and Mizuko to share with you. Please check out each artist's gallery thread here on our forums to see the full-sized images!

    Downtime Doodles - RIFT Fan Art by typrop




    Farorei's Rift Arts - RIFT Fan Art by Farorei




    My Fanart Drawings Mizuko and Miau - RIFT Fan Art by mizuko



    Fan Fiction

    Check out this great short story, written by community member Locklear93, about a bard named Rhiss and the life she now lives, but never asked for. Here’s a sneak peek!

    Where it Ends Up - Written by Locklear93

    Without a heartbeat's pause for argument, her fingers began to move, and music filled the air. No one spoke. As she played, Rhiss looked at her audience, and the room. The room's shifting light hid one detail, and changed another, but the plain stone walls matched the sturdiness of its occupants; the tired, weathered tables matched those people's worry-lined faces. Rhiss knew what had made her audience haggard, and seeing a few of those lines smooth as the men and women listening drifted on crescendo and diminuendo brought her the utmost satisfaction, and a relief she couldn't feel anywhere else.


    Fan Videos/Music

    In addition to some of the beautiful and engaging fan art and fan fiction created by the RIFT community, we also have some exceptionally talented musicians and machinima creators in our midst! Check out these very creative RIFT-inspired music and video offerings.

    We have a truly amazing group of guide writers here in the RIFT community. Every week, we add new guides to our Rift Community Guide Compendium. We added so many new guides to our list in the past couple weeks (over 20), that we actually have too many to list here, so we've randomly selected a few new guides as examples of what you can expect to find on our full list. (Please note, some of our community guides do link to other websites.)


    Apothecary Guide - Written by Elly

    Dyes Guide - Written by Elly

    [Guide-1.2] Melee Ranger v3.1 Umi Style - Written by SubM

    [Guide to Healing] The 3x/3x/x builds - Written by Sokanon

    Scarlet Gorge Mining Map - Written by Rushster


    Also, you can always see which new RIFT guides have been posted by looking for the **NEW** tag next to each in our guides threads.





    We’ve scoured our Shard forums, searching for community-run events and projects. If you have a shard community event or project you’d like to have added to this list or future Talk of Telara features, please PM someone on the Community Team with the details, or email us at community@riftgame.com. Here are some current and upcoming shard community events and projects that you may be interested in checking out!


    Acta Luna Newsletter - This is a community-written "in-character" newsletter for the Faeblight shard community. We love this and can't wait to see more!

    Faeblight Community Events Hosted by The Gaiscioch Family - Every week, the Gaiscioch Family hosts a plethora of fun events on the Faeblight shard. Check 'em out!

    Telaran Artistry Traveling Craft Fair Stop #6 - The Telaran Artistry guild is will be stopping by the Argent Glade in Silverwood on the Faeblight shard with their Traveling Craft Fair on May 28th. Don't miss it!

    Faeblight Community Ambassadors Project - The Faeblight shard community is looking for community ambassadors to help welcome new Ascended to the Faeblight shard. What a great project!

    Shatterbone Extravaganza Hosted by Telaratorial - On May 29th, Telaratorial is hosting a shard-wide extravaganza on the Shatterbone shard. Come on out and meet the Shatterbone community, and participate for a chance to win prizes! EDIT: The folks running this event would also like to let everyone know that you can also participate in this event here, even if you aren't on the Shatterbone shard.


    Thanks for checking out the very first Talk of Telara! We hope you enjoyed it, and will be on the lookout for more great community creations, news, and events for next time. If you have a shard event, community news, creative works, or anything else you’d like to see if the next Talk of Telara, please feel free to PM someone on the Community Team, or email us at community@riftgame.com for consideration.

    The folks at Telaratorial wanted us to let everyone know that the event they are running on the Shatterbone shard also has an online counterpart, for those not on the Shatterbone shard who would like to participate. I've added that in as an additional note for this event.
