Our Amps Go To 11!
Welcome to the the eleventh edition of Talk of Telara, our bi-weekly community newsletter that highlights fan art, fan fiction, videos, and guides created by you, the Rift community!
This edition of Talk of Telara is brought to you by the letter M, for MEEEEEAAADDDDDD!
It was a blast!
This past Saturday we celebrated our Extra Life event. We had Defiant and Guardian guilds on the Belmont and Atrophinius shards, and nearly 3000 people participated in them over the weekend. Many of these folks stayed up gaming in RIFT for 24 hours straight!
From trivia contests to hide and seek with the Community Team, fun was had by all. We even saw some characters that were polymorphed into monsters running around.
Extra Life gamers brought in a total of $1,108,224 for CMN Hospitals thus far, and the Trion Team brought in a total of $36,624.01. Wow!
We want to thank all of you that participated for the amazing effort that you put in. We can’t even begin to stress how stellar you guys are for doing this.
Some of the Extra Life Event forum threads can be found below:
Our weekly Community Events are still going on, so if you want your “Detective,” “Know-It-All” or “Stalker” title, remember to keep an eye on the forums or the community page, or get notifications when the events start on our official Facebook and Twitter.
Congratulations to our past winners listed here!
We would like to thank our creative and talented community members for sharing their artistic, writing, and video-making talents with us. Here are some samples from the Fan Art, Fan Fiction, and Fan Videos forums.
