    Can you smell the thriving forests?
    Can you taste the salty seas?
    Can you sense the blazing deserts?
    And the struggling fights for peace?


    Can you hear the festive music
    In the Taverns of PaxLair?
    And the smell of burning cities
    When the cabalists appear?


    Hear the battlecries of Satyrs
    As they come to take your soul
    Feel the moments of pure glory
    As the gustball hits its goal


    Praise the beauty of each flower
    Praise the crows above your head
    Praise the sweet and too, the sour
    Praise every tear that has been shed

    Live the New Britannian moments
    Praise the light, and too, the dark
    For our hopes grow in the darkness
    And stars are born from little sparks

    New Britannia is full of wonderful impressions. We want to celebrate this magnificent world and highlight all the moments of beauty, virtue, danger, and wondrous discoveries that inhabit the land. We invite you to capture your best moments in New Britannia in this ‘Impressions of New Britannia’ - Launch Screenshot Contest!

    THEMES TO CONSIDER

    We will be watching for screenshots matching the following categories, though feel free to come up with your own capture moment that is unique here:

    • …and anything else you wish to capture!
    SUBMISSION DETAILS
    • Each contestant may submit up to three screenshots. These can be spread across three different categories, or lumped into one category.
    • Screenshots must be without UI and should have highest quality settings enabled, unless you absolutely need the UI on for some combat statistic, name mention, or other effect.
    • Include a brief description for each screenshot.
    Submit all screenshots in a single post response in This Thread, and on Twitter and Facebook if you partake in that part of the contest (be sure to @ our pages there to be noticed).

    Deadline to submit is Monday, April 16 at 11:59pm CT. We will only accept one forum post per individual or group. You can submit your own entry separate from a group, if it’s completely separate in content. No reuse of submission materials!

    SCREENSHOT GUIDELINES
    • Resolution: Minimum of 1920×1080, and always in 16:9 aspect ratio (you can trim).
    • Quality: Use in-game settings to their maximum, no post-screenshot alterations allowed.
    • Set the stage: Other players and staged items in the shots are great resources.
    • Protip: Be mindful of the time for the best lighting angles and weather you may want.
    • Remember! UI off toggle is (Key: F9), no post-alterations to the screenshots please.
    WINNERS & PRIZES

    While we have categories to focus on above, winners will be judged purely by quality and originality of the screenshot.
    • 5x Top Winners: 100 COTOs (in-game currency) + Pet of your choice + Screenshot Title
    • 7x Runner-ups: 25 COTOs (in-game currency)

    • We will also be selecting 5x random winners for an additional 25 COTOs each for those who share their top screenshot on Twitter and/or Facebook (you can win both here and in the above categories, so be sure to post in the forums and link your post on social @ShroudOfAvatar for Twitter and @shroudoftheavatar for Facebook)!
    Winners will be announced during the community livestream on April 20.

    Good luck, Avatars!

    I like the title "Shutterbug" which is another term for an amateur photographer. @Berek


    Shutterbug
    A shutterbug is a photographer who cannot imagine a second of life without photography. These people carry cameras during days and nights with them and shoot everything they see.

    What if one doesn't have a monitor capable of that 1920x1080 resolution?

    I love the screenshots, but perhaps you should move them to the correct thread?

    Anyone? A dev answer perhaps? Is it intentional to exclude a fair amount of your player base from participating in something like this?

    The reasoning here is that they will use the screenshots in promotional materials and advertising the game. They're not likely to use low-res/low-detail screenshots for this. The highest level of detail and best resolution is more likely to produce the best looking screenshots given similar artistic merit.

    You can always try posting your screenshot with a disclaimer about your resolution in the post by the Monday deadline. The worst that can happen is you don't win!

    Platonic Love in Adoris, the seduction. Who can resist a musician and Adventurer.
    [​IMG]
    Platonic Love in Adoris. The ladies always dress for the occasion. (sorry I only had a 1680 x 1050 monitor when I took this)
    [​IMG]
    The terror of battle, when you see your end will you fear it. (sorry I only had a 1680 x 1050 monitor when I took this)

    If the 1680 x 1050 are really unacceptable I could post a different image in the love theme since I upgraded the monitor not very long ago

    --- hmm I have no idea how to set images inline at all like the others here.
    Here is one more as I doubt my smaller ones are wanted. The Seduction of Khasi, Priestess of Love. When there is a troubled marriage a player will play.
