The Christmas season is almost upon us - December starts in just 15 short days! And as usual, Santa's elves are hard at work to bring you the magic of the Christmas season this year.

To celebrate the countdown to the big day of Christmas itself, we're putting on a special art contest to gather 24 special Christmas-themed images for use in our very own TalonRO Advent Calendar. This seasonal calendar will countdown all of the days from December 1 through December 24. Each of the 24 days will have a special door - and behind that door is an image and maybe something special! While Santa is busy deciding what to place behind the doors, his workshop needs the help of the creative community to make 24 small images for use in each of the doors!


Eligibility Criteria

Eligible entries for this year's Advent Calendar must meet the following criteria:

  • Entries must be exactly 300px wide by 400px tall.
  • Entries must use original artwork and cannot be copied from someone else's work.
  • Entries may be a hand-drawn image, digital image, pixel/sprite based, or photography.
  • Entries should be Christmas Holiday and TalonRO-themed.
  • Images may be doodles or quick sketches, given the short time frame.
  • You are allowed to submit multiple artwork entries for this contest.


Submission Process

Valid entries may be submitted directly in this thread. Please include your in-game name when posting your image in order for the entry to be eligible. The GM staff will select 24 valid entries for use in this year's Advent Calendar. Entries will be placed into a frame image if used in the Advent Calendar - which you may create your image in if desired using the direct download link for the frame below.



Submission Deadline & Prizes

All valid entries must be received no later than Sunday, November 29th.

If your entry is used in the TalonRO Advent Calendar, we'll notify you by posting the names of the winners. As for which day your image will appear - you'll just have to check the finished product this year to find out! Valid entries which are used in this year's Advent Calendar will receive Five (5) Talon Coins for their efforts! If two or more of your submissions are chosen for the calendar, you will receive more prizes (one prize for each selected entry). All valid entries will also receive Two Christmas Boxes (ID # 8978) as thanks for your efforts!


We hope that you'll help TalonRO ring in the holiday season this year with our special calendar - it will surely become an important part of this season's holiday festivities. As always, thank you for being part of the TalonRO community and Happy Gaming!

      Visit TalonRO's Holiday Advent Calendar Here!

      The month of December is here, and our countdown to Christmas has arrived to usher in the spirit of the holiday season. We're thankful for every member of the TalonRO community, and this year we're pleased to present our special Advent Calendar giveaway as a countdown to Christmas!
      If you're unfamiliar with this concept, Advent Calendars are special calendars which mark each day from now through Christmas Eve. Behind each day on the calendar is often something nice - a small gift in celebration of the big day coming on December 25th!
      On TalonRO, we're thanking our entire community with special small items that can be obtained each day. Here's how our Advent Calendar works:

      All Advent Calendar Gifts are account-bound and will only be available on the day they are offered - meaning that you can't log-in and collect prizes from later dates. To receive all 24 gifts, you'll need to visit the Advent Calendar and the NPC in Lutie each day from now through Christmas Eve.
      We hope this fun and wonderful countdown will help ring in the holiday season on TalonRO with lots of cheer and bright wishes. We hope that each of you have a wonderful holiday and thank you as always for your support! Happy Gaming!

      P.S.: Special thanks to all of our Talonian artists who helped make this year's Advent Calendar so special and unique! We'll announce all of the winners in a few days, but for now we hope that you enjoy the Advent Calendar - we hope that you'll see your own creation in one of the presents, too!
