Talk of Telara!

Welcome to the the twelfth 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 B, for Boo!

Halloween

Halloween was a spooky time to be had for all, and this year we celebrated by having an in-game costume contest!

Update 1.6

Update 1.6 is just around the corner. This will include the new zone, Ember Isle. Be sure to check out the PTS to see it yourself. It’s definitely the next step in the evolution of RIFT.

New Community Ambassadors

We are ramping up, and soon we will be in phase two of the Community Ambassador Program. Once again, you will be able to send in your nominations via email. Stay tuned for an announcement soon, but in the meantime, if you have any suggestions, please send them to community@riftgame.com.

Guild Spotlight!

We are sending out a new call for guilds who want to participate in the Guild Spotlight feature. We want to hear your guild’s story! Whether your guild has been with us since Beta or you’ve only recently found a home in Telara, we want to hear from you.

Guild leaders, please email your guild’s history, philosophy and anything else you’d like to share with the Community to guilds@trionworlds.com with your guild name and “Guild Spotlight” in the subject line. Tell us what makes your guild stand out from the rest! We’ll pick a few of our favorites to be featured in future installments of the Guild Spotlight.

We can’t wait to hear your stories!

Also, feel free to use this forum thread for discussion.

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.
