    ONLY POST TRAILER SUBMISSIONS AND TRAILER COMMENTS HERE PLEASE!

    UPDATE: Winners announced! View the trailers at: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?p=62360

    For details of the contest, general discussion, and to ask questions, visit the Trailer Contest Announcement Thread.

    This is your chance to show that Shroud of the Avatar is both the game, and community, that new players will want to experience next! The ‘Dawn of New Britannia' Community Trailer Contest kicks off today!

    You have from August 4, 2016 (Now) to August 21, 2016 (11:59 PM CDT) to design a video trailer for all New Britannians to see and admire. Glamorous city districts, creative player-owned towns, luxurious housing, intense combat, majestic outdoor areas, and so much more is available to proudly show off. There’s a nearly infinite potential in creating a trailer that makes even the most hardy New Britannia cry in joy, and to want to share the video with others.

    As submissions are posted in this thread, we will also link them to this post for easy viewing.

    Good luck all! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

    I thought the dragon was the end (which was AWESOME!) But then it wasn't. Still, I give it 5 stars. Really sets the bar for those that follow.
    Great job!

    Thanks for the compliment. :)

    Not a fan of the Oracle Easter Egg ending, eh?

    Originally, I ended with the dragon. Then I started playing around with B footage and spliced together the Oracle. May be too much. But, I liked it and threw it in. I'll make adjustments prior to deadline.

    Thanks for the feedback, Sir Frank.

    Title: A Quick Journey through Shroud of the Avatar (a.k.a. Impressions of SotA)
    Description: a story of realisation, as the avatar gradually becomes aware that despite first impressions all is not idyllic in New Britannia.
    Why I created it: I like making videos
    YouTube link to the trailer:



    I'll probably update the video at some time. If I do, I'll add a message below.

    UPDATE (4:23 AM Tuesday 16 Austin time):
    Finally fixed the length problem. Now under 3 minutes.

    Good luck everybody. I hope we get a lot more entries.

    Great job, Womby! I wish I had some footage of the opening scene, but I did not want to delete my character and restart to snag it. :) Good luck!

    Title: New Britannia Awaits!
    Description: Inspired by the in-game, crowd-sourced sound track of Shroud of the Avatar I present a few of the many reasons why I am absolutely in love with this game. Music by Richard Daskas - "Over Hill and Round the Mountain".
    Why I created this video: To give my friends and viewers a better idea of why I'm so obsessed with Shroud of the Avatar now that the servers have gone persistent!!! And I'm not gonna lie: hopes of winning the prizes is a major incentive boost!

    Cast in order of appearance: Xeen Moonlight, @Nuku , @Denyde , @Korim Rackham , and @Jack Knyfe.

    I'm not sure what time it opens, but the moongates do open to the three starting areas as well as the Isle of Storms if you've got the patience to wait for it!

    I like this one, great job! I'm no video expert or anything but i really liked it. Could use some music that gives it bit more punch for more of an exciting feeling to go with your awesome work. The shroud music is pretty but it always makes me feel sleepy lol. ;)
