  1. Forum Event: Draw the Boss!

    Dear heroes of Dracania,

    A new day rises and the Resistance Command Center remains victorious after the latest wave of attacks. Now that the Dragon Commander’s Emberwing has been defeated once and for all, the people of Shorefolk can go on with their lives, under the careful watchfulness of the Alliance. But some questions remain unanswered and not even the Seer at Kingshill is able to clarify them.
    Rumor has it that Emberwing was simply a pawn serving a higher boss. Is there any truth in this and if it is so, was the skirmish at the Command Center the prelude of something bigger that creeps in the shadows?

    This is an official call to all creative heroes out there that can provide more information about this!
    Let your imagination go wild and join us in our “Draw the Boss” event!


    The event – an overview:

    There will be three final winners. Their creations will be posted across all our social media, receiving the attention they deserve! Since this is a design event, our art team will make the final decision on these three winners. However, we also want to give the opportunity to our awesome community to vote on their best designs and that’s why we will host a Community Vote as well.
    Keep on reading!

    Reception of drawings finishes:
    2nd of May 12:00 CEST

    Rules of this event:

    IMPORTANT: If you want to participate, make sure you FOLLOW THESE RULES. You may get completely disqualified if you do not comply with them! Also, by reading and submitting your design to this contest you are agreeing to all the points here displayed.
    • You can participate with ONE DESIGN per GLOBAL ACCOUNT.
    • What are looking for? Everything: from single illustrations featuring one boss to mob group shots! You can draw one scene or combine some scenes to create a little comic strip, if you want. Have a look at THIS ILLUSTRATION to get some ideas, if you need some. ;)

    • Creations are welcome both in B&W and in color!
    • Topic/theme: the mastermind behind the Resistance Command Center latest attack.
    • We will accept the following two mediums:
      • Photoshop/digital creations (designs made with the Photoshop or similar editing programs). In this case we will need the PSD or similar files in the submission.
      • Non-Photoshop creations (designs not made with Photoshop or similar editing programs: crayons, pencils, markers…). In this case, please provide us with a good resolution scan of your design. Do not take pictures with cameras!
    • Language restrictions: if you decide to create a little comic or scene, then please use English.
    • Please send good resolution files – drawings or designs that do not have a minimal degree of details or that are sent with bad quality will not be taken into consideration.
    • Please, do not plagiarize copyrighted content – if we believe your creation is not completely new we will disqualify you immediately! Of course you can get inspiration from other sources but there is always a big difference between inspiration and plagiarism.
    Important rule of this contest – pre-selection and community vote
    Once the deadline of this event is over (29.04), the art team along with the community management team will get together and select a final number of designs that will pass to the finals. We call this the pre-selection process. This final number of designs will appear on Facebook during the weekend (29.04-01.05) for everyone to vote. Its final number may vary, depending on general participation.
    By the end of that voting period, we will announce then the three final winners chosen by the art team plus all the Top 10 designs picked up by the community! (Read below to check the rewards)
    By sending your design to this competition you are agreeing to this particular point.

    Ok, so, how do you send us your designs?
    • Once you have finished your design and you are happy with it, please send a message to the following email address:
    • Designs sent after the closing date will not be taken into consideration!
    • Please attach your design in that email and please provide us with the following information:
      • Account ID
      • The name of your character
      • The server you normally play in
      • You country
      • A brief description about your creation (who is the mastermind of the attack and why, for example) – this point is optional but of course we would like to know more!
    • Take your time when sending us this information, please. If there is some information missing, we will not include your design in the competition.
    • Remember, if you are sending us a Photoshop/media design please provide us with the source files as well. If you are sending a hand-made creation, please make sure the scan is made in a good resolution and avoid sending us photographs.
    • Please remember that we will not exchange any special/personal emails with you until the finalists get selected! If you are a finalist, then you will get a message from us.
    • This means that if you do not get selected for the Community vote round, you have not passed the first selection. As simply as that. We will not hold any kind of correspondence with players who do not pass to the finals.

    Three final winners
    35.000 Andermant + 30 days of Premium Deluxe + 150 Realm Fragments + 1 mount of their choice between the following ones: Walk Hawk Chariot, Gremlin Shield Bearers or any of the wing mounts.

    4th to 10th prizes: 10.000 Andermant + 7 days of Premium + 50 Realm Fragments

    *IMPORTANT NOTE* Each of the votes and results is independent. This means that a single design could win both the DSO Team vote and the Community Vote.

    Have fun creating!
