Hello!!

I always wanted to participate in arts contest, but before, I would like to ask something regarding the rules. There it says:

1 hour ago, GM Elixia said:
  • Entries may be drawn either traditionally (by hand) or digitally.
  • Entries must be presented in colour.
  • Entries must be original.
    • NO copying from existing RO headgear.
    • NO copying from other games.
    • NO plagiarism.
    • Entries deemed copied shall be disqualified or removed from the contest.

In my case, I'm not good in drawing (last time I tried to make a Panda I ended creating an alien :c) but I know Photo Manipulation using Photoshop. Is that allowed? Or using Photo manipulation will result in disqualification?

Hi Zyon! That shouldn't be a problem, provided the photo manipulation doesn't resemble any existing RO headgear.  /ok

Hiii. I would like to give a try at this. But I dont have photoshop to open the .psd and edit the text. ANy sugestions?

Should I use the font (courier New) with a size that makes it look similar?

Edit: I see, i thought the font had to be courier new.

Edit2: over 9000 ideas, but lack skills to draw /desp

Took a while, but I'm finally ready to post my first set of headgear designs! /crwd


Disclaimer: I'm not much of an artist (more of a writer), so my apologies in advance for the low quality of the designs! I'm mostly using photo manipulation to get my ideas across, so I hope these will spark your imagination like they did with mine. /heh

Note: I'm using Courier New font size 18pt, as 8pt looks rather small in the provided PNG template – do let me know if this is all right. /gawi

Back Story / Headgear Questline:

  Reveal hidden contents

 

This headgear is obtainable through a quest similar to the Lord Kaho's Horn quest.

Quest Prerequisites: Ring of the Wise King, Heart Fragment Quest


One day, while adventuring in the wilderness, the player adventurer meets a lone shrine maiden sweeping the ground outside a small shrine. "Oh, hello," she greets. "It isn't often someone comes by this way. Would you please keep me company for a while?"

The adventurer agrees. "Sure, why not?"

She smiles. "Thank you. My name is Kanna; what's yours? [Player Name], is it? It's nice to meet you."

"What do you do here?"

"Me? I am the last of the shrine maiden for the temple of the Four Gods."

"The Four Gods...?"

A sad smile. "Not many people remember them anymore. A long time ago, people used pray to them all over the world. But when Satan Morroc arose a thousand years ago, the Four Gods spent all of their power to seal him, and they fell into a deep slumber until now."

"I thought it was the Mage Knight Thanatos who sealed Satan Morroc?"

"Yes, Thanatos did so with the help of the Four Gods... but not many people think so anymore. Even the shrine maidens have lost faith, treating the Four Gods as mere legends, and now I'm the only one left." A sigh. "I hope that one day, the Four Gods will awaken once more..."

They part ways. Time passes, the adventurer completes the Pursuing Rayan Moore quest, and eventually passes by Kanna and the shrine again.

"Oh, hello again," she greets. "It's been a while. How are you?"

"Hey..." the adventurer begins, "You said the Four Gods helped to seal Satan Morroc back then, right? Well, Satan Morroc arose again... and destroyed the town of Morroc."

She gasps and drops the broom in her hand. "What?! Oh no, this can't be true! But, the Four Gods are still asleep..."

"Is there any way we could awake them?"

"I don't know... maybe you should ask another shrine maiden."

The adventurer then heads out on a quest to awaken the Four Gods. First he asks another shrine maiden (perhaps at Amatsu / Rachel?), who mentions a spell that can be used to summon gods and asks the adventurer to gather the required materials. With the materials in hand, the shrine maiden casts the spell, but aside from a bright flash of light, nothing happens.

"That's odd," the shrine maiden says. "This ritual has never failed before."

"What does that mean?" the adventurer asks.

"One possible reason I can think of is that the Four Gods are so deep in slumber that we need a strong power to awake them. But something so strong isn't something we can get our hands on so easily..."

The adventurer returns to Kanna and updates her on the situation.

"Something strong... what could it be?" Kanna wonders aloud.

They part ways, after which the adventurer completes the How the Airship Works and the Heart Fragment quests. When the adventurer returns to Kanna, the Rune Stone or imitation of Ymir's Heart is suggested as the source of power to awaken the Four Gods.

"It's worth a shot," Kanna says. "Let's give it a try!"

First, the adventurer will have to get a Rune Stone, and to do that they will have to sneak into the laboratory in Einbroch again, using the same password system as in the Heart Fragment quest. Once inside, the adventurer steals a Rune Stone and leaves quietly.

When shown the Rune Stone, the other shrine maiden (at Amatsu / Rachel?) nods and says, "Yes, I believe this is strong enough to awaken the Four Gods. However, we need a machine to be able to harness the power..."

After the adventurer completes the Ring of the Wise King quest, they visit the Schwartzvalt Mechanic NPC at Midgard Camp, the one who helped to make the Ring of the Wise King. When asked to make a machine strong enough to activate the Rune Stone, he raises an eyebrow.

"Machine to use a Rune Stone...? What are you using it for?"

The adventurer contemplates lying about the reason, but in the end chooses to tell the truth about awakening the Four Gods.

"I see... I don't really believe in the Four Gods or anything, but since you've helped me so much, I'll do it... for a fee. And of course, you'll be the one to gather the materials." He lists the materials and fee required, and adds, "Also, I'll need the summoning spell to put into the machine."

When asked, the other shrine maiden (at Amatsu / Rachel?) says, "Yes, I can make the spell for you if you would bring the following." She lists the items required, and adds, "And a donation of [Amount] zeny to the temple will be very much appreciated."

Grumbling, the adventurer relents. The shrine maiden requires 2 hours to prepare the summoning spell. "It's a delicate process," she says.

When the adventurer returns to the mechanic at Midgard Camp with the spell and the gathered materials, the latter requires 2 hours to make the machine. "Hey, I'm busy enough as it is!" he says. "As much as a genius as I am, I still need 2 hours to build the machine from scratch."

Once the machine is completed, the mechanic declared, "Am I a genius or what? No one else can build this at record speed like I did! Here, take the Rune Stone Activator; I even made it as portable as possible for you. Turn it on, adjust the dial and push the big red button. You don't need an instruction manual, right?"

The adventurer returns to Kanna, who leads them into the shrine. Upon activating the Rune Stone, they are teleported into a set of floating rocks in a void, where four coloured crystals – blue, red, green and black – are waiting for them. At this point, the adventurer can choose to awaken one of the Four Gods and challenge them, as instance MVP battles similar to the Spirit of Lord Kaho's instance in the Lord Kaho's Horns quest.

Upon awakening any of the Four Gods using the Rune Stone Activator, the God bellows, "Who dares awaken me?! A mere mortal?"

"Please, Lord [Gods' Name]!" Kanna cries. "Satan Morroc has awaken once again; we need your help to fight him!"

A pause. "Satan Morroc... a name we would not have wanted to hear again. Very well, mortal, I will lend you what is left of my power after my long slumber... after you complete my trial. To prove you are strong enough to wield my power..." The God roars. "Defeat my avatar!"

(Below are what I have in mind for their designs, which are from the internet so credits to their original creator!)

After defeating the Gods, the avatar version of the God (like the headgear) appears before the adventurer.

"You have proven your strength, mortal," the God says. "I shall lend you my power in accordance to yours – the stronger you are, the more power you shall receive. My avatar shall now accompany you on your journey, to defeat Satan Morroc once and for all."

Both the adventurer and shrine maiden is teleported back to the shrine; everything seems normal as though nothing has happened. Except this time, the adventurer has the avatar of the defeated God (received the headgear).

"I never thought..." Kanna whispers. "I never thought I'd live to see one of the Four Gods awakened! If only the others had believed and stayed..." She shakes her head. "One of the Four Gods have awakened, but there are still three more! I'm counting on you, [Player Name]!"

At this point, the adventurer can talk to Kanna to be teleported to the instance again and choose to awaken the next God to challenge. Kanna will count down after each MVP defeated, like, "Two of the Four Gods remain deep in slumber. I'm counting on you, [Player Name]!"

Once all Four Gods MVPs have been defeated (and all four headgears received), Kanna says, "All the Four Gods are awakened..." She smiles. "Thank you for making my dream come true, [Player Name]. I hope this will help with the battle with Satan Morroc."

And that is the end of the quest. If the adventurer chooses to talk to Kanna again, though, she says, "Oh, hello, [Player Name]! I hope the power of the Four Gods are helping you well. Me? Well, I don't have much to do now that the Four Gods are awakened... and after working as a shrine maiden my whole life, I'm not quite sure what else I should do. Maybe I should head to Yuno and become a baker..."

 

Inspiration Source:

  Reveal hidden contents

 

These four themed headgears were designed based on the four legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and is often found in Asian media, especially video games and manga/manhwa/manhua. (TV Tropes explanation). It may be one of the more popular mythology, but I love seeing the same theme applied differently in different media and I wanted to try and do the same for TalonRO. Plus I love the idea of having a creature avatar by my character's side, so this idea was born!

As for the stats, I love the idea of having diversified lower headgear that may be considered on par with the Lord Kaho's Horns as upper headgear, and that will help to diversify the class builds even more. I'm sure that will make the game more interesting. /heh

      Season's Greetings, Talonians!  
      Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate it with a rare Snow Bunny Pet!
      For this event we need you players to change up famous Christmas songs and add a TalonRO theme to it!

      ●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○● Mechanics ●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●○●
       
      Change the lyrics of any famous English Christmas song by adding TalonRO themes and words to it.  The funnier and wittier, the better! Here's an example: Original song:
      Silent Night
      Holy Night
      All is calm
      All is bright
      Round yon virgin
      Mother and child
       
      Changed lyrics:
      Santa Poring
      Where are you now?
      Lutie's calm
      Show up now
      Shower us gifts
      Some Vanilla gears
       
      Players will choose either to change the lyrics of one (1) whole verse or chorus. An example would be:  [VERSE]
      I don't want a lot for Christmas
      There is just one thing I need
      I don't care about the presents
      Underneath the Christmas tree
      I don't need to hang my stocking
      There upon the fireplace
      Santa Claus won't make me happy
      With a toy on Christmas Day
      OR
      [CHORUS]
      Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
      Let earth receive her King;
      Let every heart prepare Him room,
      And Heaven and nature sing,
      And Heaven and nature sing,
      And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

      The Halloween event is a far bigger event. This is just ONE of the features included in this years event.

      Optional but highly recomended (Dont be a cheapstake, just buy them):
      1 x Dragon Tail 1 x Dragon Scale 1 x Dragon Canine -STEPS-
      To start the quest, you need to go to the Event Map. For that, use the Halloween Warper near the Prontera Mailbox
      You'll be assigned to one Team:  Necromancers or Spirit Channelers. Talk to the respective leader of your team.
      The NPC will mention something about some relick (Monkey Paws?), two men, and a woman that died near a river (thats the clue, if you haven't done Kiel Hyre quest you won't get it). Now you need to go to Border Checkpoint (yuno_fild12 67,276). There you'll find the NPC Ratsy:
      Talk to Ratsy and ask about the dead woman. She'll say something about bringing her back, and will ask for a Bloodstone. It's located on Glast Hein St.Abbey (gl_church 49,20). Just warp to Glast Hein Churchyard using the warp girl, and take the south potal. You're looking for a weird thing that looks like a piano (in the right angle):
      CAREFUL HERE. Theres other "pianos" on the map that works too. I don't know its locations. YOU NEED TO SPAM. Just keep talking to it until it says you found a Bloodstone. Once you get the Bloodstone, go back to Ratsy (yuno_fild12) and talk. Now you need to get some Drowned Sailor Tears. Ratsy mentions you'll have to dive DEEP to get them. So now you want to go to Bibilan dungeon (warp girl can take you there). Go to the floor with Phens, Marcs and Swordfishs (iz_dun03 155,51):
      Talk to the Merman and ask for his help to get the Tears. He'll ask for the empty test tube. Agree with him on everything and he will give you the tears. If you talk to him again, he'll stab you.  No big deal. Go back to Ratsy and there will be a spooky ritual, and a Banshee NPC will pop out DONT TALK TO RATSY AFTER THE BANSHEE SPAWNED. Talk/Walk into the banshee. Ask about the relic of MonkeyPaws (whatever that was) and she'll mention a tropical forest with reptiles. Now you can talk to Ratsy again if you want. By the way, thats Papuchia Forest (cmd_fild01). Now you have to find 7 specific trees on that map (yes... SEVEN). Their locations are those:
      cmd_fild01 97,48       - H cmd_fild01 93,148     - O cmd_fild01 123,242   - L cmd_fild01 99,295     - N cmd_fild01 283,259   - L cmd_fild01 335,93     - E cmd_fild01 202,134   - I
      Each one of the orange dots are Trees that you need to check (coordinates above). When you check the last tree, it will tell you about some kid in the Geffen waters. Thats in Geffen FIeld (gef_fild09 140,140). To go there, take a warp to Orc Dungeon, and then the portal in the upper right corner. Now find the lil' boy named Lhoris in one of the land things that strech to the water:
      Once you talk to him, ask about the relic, monkey paws, same old stuff. He''ll ask for some password(codeword). From the letters of the trees, you can guess. No? ok its hellion. or HELLION. Both works. Now he asks for Snail's Shell. He does not mention an amount, but it seems to be 200 (or really close to that). As stated above, you can farm the shells in this map from ambernites. Good luck. When you have the 200, just give them to him, and he'll say something about an older cousin on a place with toy buildings. For your surprise, that's NOT toy factory. It's actually in Gonryun Field (gon_fild01 130,133). You'll be looking for a NPC named Anzati:
      Talk to Anzati. HE'S ANGREH! So to chill, you decide by yourself to give him 2 OBB's. After he's LESS ANGREH, he'll tell you a pesky black cat stole his toy. A King Tristram action figure (I want one). The pesky black cat is a Wild Rose. Now the one who'll be angry is you. This part requires some patience. You'll need to reach Geffen FIeld 5 (gef_fild05), and search for a specific wild rose. The PESKY wild rose keep changin his location (It seemed to be among a fixed spawn locations, not confirmed). So what you gotta do is wander through the map trying to find a suspicious wild rose. The mous will not change to the speech bubble like normal NPCs, it will change into a sword (Just lke the Merman, and the Banshee Alysia). The only diference from a normal wild rose is that it does not move.   Now If you see a wild rose idling, run to it. If its the real NPC, a dialogue will appear. Choose to snatch the toy. There's a chance of succeeding (not sure, I got in first try and some people needed 6 tries). If you fail, the cat will scratch you and change its location. OK, now you get that toy and bring it back to Anzati. Ask about relic monkey stuff, he'll send you to find a friend mage that went on adventures in a dry and rocky place near a floating city. Thats Yuno. And you want to search him in Yuno field 4 (yuno_fild04 54,142). The mage name is Luvon.
      Luvon will say he's busy with some orc problem, and you offer to help. He'll send you to a friend in the orc encampment. Thats the orc village and the NPC to search is Cassius (gef_fild10 345,205):
      When you speak to Cassius, he ask you to check the camp, including the insides. You'll have to find a total of 10 spots. They're:
      ORANGE DOTS are the portals to the buildings (you shouldnt have trouble finding the spots inside them), and BLUE DOTS are spots on the Field
      gef_fild10 246,83    - well - deep in_orcs01 151,31    - bed - feather gef_fild10 175,173 - axe - sharp in_orcs01 118,113  - shield - sturdy in_orcs01 107,178  - skulls - white gef_fild10 73,343  - banner - stained gef_fild14 325,195 - stump - small gef_fild14 80,170  - ballista - gigantic gef_fild14 121,306 - barricade - wood gef_fild14 163,285 - tower/lookout - tree You can find them in any order, and the order I stated them seems to be a good one.

      When talking to the last spot, it will tell you that you found everything. At this moment you should go back to Cassius to report. Tell him everything, and he'll ask some information For each spot, there were two red words, those were key words. Cassius will ask about something (e.g.. ask about Stump, and you type in "small", no quotes). The associations are above, together with the coordinates. Type exactly as it is. one letter wrong and he wont accept.
      After he accept your information, you should go back to Luvon (the mage in yuno fild 04). He'll now tell you about some Monolith in the riverbanks of a River around prontera. Bring the BIJOUS with you. You're going to find a Monolith two maps west from Prontera (prt_fild04 141,315):
      Touch the monolith and will tell you about Five Dancing dragons (or not dancing at all, whatever), and the number five. Also there's the colors RED, BLUE AND YELLOW. What a coincidence you brought your Bijous. Talk to it again, and you'll insert the Bijous. The monolith will tell you about some pumpkim. And you of course, think about Niff when you see a pumpkin. Thats exactly where you're going now. Its almost finishing the quest, only one more annoying part and we're good to get some rewards. Go to Skellington (nif_fild01 216,47). Its a somewhat hidden place, with lots of pumpkins:
      When you arrive there, you may notice the pumpkin are NPCs, but you need to talk to Jakk Skellington first. Remember that the monsters in this map can be troublesome if mobbed. Ask about the relic/monkey paws, and Jakk will tell you he needs some FABULOUSLY carved pumpkins. First thing you gotta do is talk to some pumpkins and choose to gather them. You can get up to three pumpkins at once. Do so and talk to Jakk again. He'll ironically ask if you need a knife, and send you to gather one in the valley. He also mentions a Pumpkinring that will help you in the carving process. Another coincidence, the map one east to SKellington is Valley of Gyoll, the place where you will get your knife and find the Pumpkinring (nif_fild02 47,263):
      Now, talk to Pumpkinring. I dont remember what he says, but you need a knife anyway. You should get one Rusty Kitchen Knife, wich is droped by Bloody Murderers on that same map. Its 60% drop and you need only one, so no big deal. With the knife in inventory, talk to Pumpkinring and ask to carve. He'll make a pose, a Sonic Blow sound, and attempt to carve. There's a good chance of failing (maybe even higher than success chance). After each attempt, it will tell you how many raw pumpkins you have. Carve your 3 pumpkins and go back to Jakk to give him the pumpkins. He'll accept it by a chance, and discard the other ones. here we enter a loop:
      Collect pumpkins in Jakk map; Try to carve them with Pumpkinring; Bring them to Jakk for judgement; Repeat those 3 steps until Jakk accept 3 of your carved Pumpkins. He'll then mention that to get the Relic/Monkey Paw, you should go to a huge circle, protected by dragons, and set the pumpkins to work their magic. The Map we're seeking is Abyss Lakes (hu_fild05), and you're NOT going to enter the abyss dungeon. I suggested bringing the dragon parts because the last step is in the center island, but not inside the dungeon itself. Now you should look for Soils that look like this:
      There are MORE than 3 Soils (maybe 6), so dont go planting anywhere. You should plant the pumpkins in the following spots, marked by ORANGE DOTS:
      Coordinates are : 281,139 -- 95,139 -- 198,304
      Now you should feel happy. You only need to go to the middle and collect your prizes. To do so, talk to the Column, marked in the map as a BLUE DOT, and insert the dragon parts. If you did not bring them, you can try your luck and use Teleport/Fly Wing to reach the middle platform.
      Once there just talk to the spooky darky creepy black thing wich should be in the southern part of the island. It will say there's no such thing as Monkey Paws (the cake is a lie). BUT you'll get your prizes.
      Now go back to the event map and talk to the School leader. He will say that its a shame you wasted your time, and the artifact stills a mistery.
      -THE END-
      Edit: A huge thanks to all the people that helped in finding NPCs and solving puzzles.
      Thanks @Cassidyfor those extra piano locations.
