    Fan Art

    We have so many talented artists in our community! Sometimes it's difficult to pick just a few pieces to share, but this time we have fan art from Fenrier and Ishkhaara. If you're an artist who has RIFT fan art to share, please let us know by posting in the Fan Art forum, or contacting us! We love seeing new RIFT fan art. For the full-sized images, please be sure to check out each artist's gallery thread.

    Fan Fiction

    Check out this collection of beautifully written "memories", written by community member Arieltalia. Here’s a sneak peek!

    Awakening and Beyond - Written by Arieltalia

    For the next few weeks, we were almost constantly in each other’s company. I learned quite a bit about humans that I had never even bothered to be interested in before, and I grew to like him a great deal. I found that he had a wife back in some far land, but that he took jobs that sent him away for the “adventure”, or so he said. I remember finding that comment a bit odd, knowing that I was in little danger there up high in my exquisitely appointed palace.


    Fan Videos/Music

    Our RIFT video masters never cease to disappoint! This time, we have a gorgeous role-play guild event trailer by Nova Dark and The Cabal of the Three Sisters, and an excellent RIFT music video by Elysiumsw. Keep those creative RIFT videos coming, everyone!

    Our dedicated group of RIFT guide writers have been hard at work creating even more great guides for you! As always, please note that some of our community guides do link to other websites.


    1.3 PvP Chlorolock - Written by Arcanas

    Chloromancer/Warlock Guide - Written by Arcanas

    [Guide] Level 50 Warrior PvP in 1.3 - Written by DaseinNJ

    Kruunch's Universal Grinding Build (World PvE/PvP) - Written by Kruunch

    my new SC/DOM BS/AB WIN - Written by DaddyDaz

    [PvP] The WTF s/b spec updated (22 Paladin / 28 Champion / 16 Paragon) - Written by Milen

    Rasp's Fire Raid Rift PuG Guide - Written by RaspFatality

    If you're looking for new guides, remember you can always see which new RIFT guides have been added to Rift Community Guide Compendium by looking for the **NEW** tag next to each link!





    Every week, many individual shard communities host their own fun events. These are a great way to meet new friends on your shard! Here are just a few of the past, current, and upcoming shard community events:


    Past Events

    Faeblight Town Hall - 7/15 - Elrar dropped in on the Faeblight shard on July 15th to chat with the Ascended in both Meridian and Sanctum. He'll be stopping by every shard eventually, so keep your eyes out for him!


    Current/Upcoming Events

    Acta Luna Monthly Newsletter: July Edition - The folks on the Faeblight shard have published their July edition of the Acta Luna Monthly Newsletter. Check it out!

    RP Meet & Greet on Faeblight - The Faeblight community is holding a big RP Meet & Greet even for both factions. The exact dates and times are listed in the discussion thread -- this is one shin-dig you won't want to miss!


    This brings us to the end of our fifth Talk of Telara! We hope you enjoyed it! We'll be on the hunt for more stellar community news and events, and artistic creations 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 a member of the Community Team, or email us at community@riftgame.com for consideration.

    Seemed kinda bias that all the top selected Colossi had to be great drawings. Basically all the devs wanted was a copy and paste idea instead of a good idea.

    What?

    The drawing contest winners had great ideas AND beautiful artwork. Where's the problem?

    A fantastic idea and ten minutes in paint does not a winner make.

    Great ideas? The only way the #1 idea would work is if its atleast 3x bigger than Greenscale. Seems pretty stupid to me to have something that big as an invasion boss.

    Functionality wasn't part of the selection process according to the rules.

    Judging of the winners will be based on Originality, Creative Expression of the Contest Challenge, Overall Impact of the Work, and Technical Skill in whatever degree the judges believe to be appropriate in reaching a decision.

    The first is amazing both visually and conceptually. You can tell a lot of time went into making it as well. I don't think they could have chosen a better piece to win the top prize. I'm sure a lot of jaws will drop as more people see it. I know mine did.

    actually, i think thatd be a neat fight.. he stands over the entire zone, waiting to destroy it, you must take down each of his legs, which would act as footholds, while he is spewing out invasions, then you fight the boss itself, maybe through cannonfire.. it could happen.. maybe

    I'm curious about when the titles go out as well. One of the other winners is in my guild, and he frantically checks his mail / titles every day. Please let us know when to expect these.

    I'm planning to move from the server I'm on to another but I didn't want to move until after the titles are given out so as to not confuse anyone or make anything more complicating.
