UPDATE:
Sharpshooter challenges are now over. The former challenges for SharpShooter are now closed.



The following challenges are available to try your chance at a code for a pair of "Mecha"/"Xero" wings. (when released)


Want some Xero/Mecha wings? Well your chance has finally come...


The following will be a list of challenges. Whether you choose to accept the challenge is up to you, whether you complete the challenge is up to you. There will be no technical deadline, but there is a very limited number of codes and the slots will fill up once per week (Probably After 12:01A.M. Tuesdays) depending on the number of entries.

This is how I would prefer you approach this:
Read the rules, post in the thread reserving your spot with a statement like "Challenge Accepted". Work toward that challenge and edit your original post to include your progress (this contest is not about being spammy and bumpy).

General Rules:
Must follow Trion ToS, must abide by Forum Rules, must be Media Forum Related.
You may enter one challenge at a time, each challenge provides One key for the Xero Wings when they are released.




Karaoke Contest (Closed)


Please give a round of applause for...
The winner of the first round of Challenge #1...


MainFrame With Slow Sebastian (http://youtu.be/QSNRlchx1R0)







TROVE ANIME MUSIC VIDEO
Make an awesome Trove Music Video. I'm not going to put too many rules here because I want your creativity to flow. All I want is a clean, decent quality, appropriate, video with good rhythm, meter, and fitting Trove clips - then put it on Youtube so we can view it here. Remember that effort counts most in these contest challenge things. :]







TROVE THEMED MANGA

Design a TROVE STYLE MANGA - I don't care if you use paint, a professional studio app, screenshots, models, full 3D images, WHATEVER you can imagine. The storyline will count most here. Put as much sincere effort as you can into it.
To clarify... Create an awesome, possibly action-y, Trove Themed Comic. It can be as cartoony as you want it to be, or even realistic. The entertainment value is what counts as well as sincerity and effort in this challenge.

Expect TWO codes for the Xero wings for this bonus challenge when Xero comes out.

Challenge 1 : Operation "Trove Related Musical Thing" is a go.
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

Session 1: Came up with lyrics. Figured out how to record midi files with my electric piano. Song is now unofficially codenamed "Sad Horse".

Session 2: I get a whole melody, bass, and percussion on the midi to find out I can't record my microphone to it without using a $19 attachment that would take 2 weeks to get. So, I decide to try it the ole fashioned way, with Piano, Electric Bass, and Vocal.
I'll have my entry in as soon as it processes. :D

Challenge Ac... wait, by manga, do you mean it has to follow the traditional way of reading (up-down, right to left)? And also the art styles with emphasized eyes? or just simply a cartoon would work?...cepted

Welp. Looks like I'm late for da wings, but here anyway:

Let the creative juices flow; basically it just has to be a Trove comic. ;D

Nope! :D

Thank you for asking; for the most part the rules that are in place are very lax and the ones not in place are even lax-er. So whatever you can conceive that you think will be enjoyed will more than likely be highly acceptable as long as it falls under the technical definition for what is requested. ^_^

Well then I guess i'll strive for #5 then in my spare time. Either that or #3

Well, this is my final result of "Slow Sebastian"!

http://youtu.be/QSNRlchx1R0

It was a whole lot of fun to do! I put lyrics in the description just in case my voice is a tad bit enunciated.
I used a tablet to record it, so that's the sound quality for ya.

Not quite sure if I'll be able to deliver codes later tonight/nextmorning, so I'm announcing Slow Sebastian (http://youtu.be/QSNRlchx1R0) as a winner just a wee bit early. This song is just awesome and deserves to win.

A note to everyone: Xero wing codes will be available in the near future so just maintain patience. Winning one of these weekly contests ensures your spot on the list of those to receive a code when they arrive in game.

Honestly, the experience of actually making music with a goal in mind has been enough reward! It was really fun to do!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's entries when they come out.

Nobody will be barred from re-entering and I will only be limiting everyone to one challenge a week to clarify any confusions, you can choose another or different challenge every week, just make a new post with your challenge in mind :D

I'm certainly glad you enjoyed it! :D I enjoyed coming up with a unique challenge that doesn't clash with existing giveaways only about 1/8 as much as I enjoyed listening to your finished product.

It's hugely rewarding to have someone's creativity shared with oneself and so I also highly look forward to what everyone comes up with until I run out of codes ^_^

Once the Xero wing codes are in hand I'll be making a separate thread specifically for Wing challenges.

I'm glad you think so! :D

I'm trying to make the challenges diverse across different skillsets and talents but not distinctly advantageous to any group of people - so if you or anyone has any ideas they think might make for good challenges to earn those wings I'll take note for sure. :]

This challenge is still open for anyone interested.

This will be the last week for SharpShooter codes 'cause once this is over they're all gone. Forever.

Many more chances will come for Xero wings, however.

Congratulations to everyone that received a sharpshooter code; there are quite literally none left to give.


These challenges are re-opening for the Xero/Mech wings now, however they are not fully implemented and require much patience.

A short manga/comic? Challenge accepted

If there's no deadline, I'll take my time coz I'm lazy like that :cool:
"Work toward that challenge and edit your original post to include your progress"
I'll do that, then. Is 3 ~ 5 pages okay? I'm still drafting them out at the moment though.

Page 1 Progression ( Drawing up characters takes a lotta rough drafts )
Draft : http://i.imgur.com/mp8yrjt.png
Cleaned : http://i.imgur.com/ogv2wIN.png
Fixes/Details : http://i.imgur.com/RsrNpqM.png
Final :

Page 2 Progression ( Draft was pretty clean so not much to see here )

Cleaned a bit more :

Page 3 Progression ( forgot to draft )
Done :
http://i.imgur.com/f4JCtN6.png

Page 4 Progression : Never drawn a fighting scene before so there'll probs be a lot of random panel concepts and drafts
Eye candy samurian positioning and stance - a few extremely rough draftings
First decent pose, though very messy : http://i.imgur.com/BTdCMuO.png
Rotated and changed a few things : http://i.imgur.com/KKubJDU.png
Almost done just needs the hat http://i.imgur.com/mmxy1nl.png
Dooooone ! Fight poses are tough to draw, last update for the night. http://i.imgur.com/r2St42c.png
In an actual page this time : http://i.imgur.com/PI6LW0c.png
Page 4 Completed \o\ :

Page 5 progression -
Contains what little there is to spoil, please read page 1 ~ 4 first. Go ahead if you have,
or if you just wanna see the pictures like I do when I "read" manga myself. xD

Panel 1 down \o\ Hooray for recycling. http://i.imgur.com/99yrmC0.png

Working on it ! :D I think there'll be around 7 pages. ~ lifted from 5 ;o
Also got rid of my handwriting so it's a little safer for your eyes.

Loving the draft so far, very manga style, and the ominous pvp foreshadowing is very trovey. Looking forward to what come up with :D

3-5 pages is totally fine. As long as it shows some honest effort (which is already apparent in yours) it's highly eligible. Nyanta has reserved two codes for themselves with their entry last week.

Don't stop here, but you have earned two spots on the Xero Wing code receiver list (I normally update this Tuesday mornings, but was busy yesterday).

Oh, cool \o\ Hopefully I'll get it done by the end of tomorrow, otherwise it might take a few more days coz I go back to school this Monday and I haven't even started my essay assignment thing. xD
The challenge thing is great fun to do, though and gave me something else to learn and do over the holiday, so thanks for that !

Update : Most of the homework's outta the way, so I can hopefully finish the comic this weekend.
