Trailer event

We recently released the first part of Chapter VII, Legacy of the Soulless.

Now we need a trailer – an exciting, epic, expertly craft video, which shows how magical Runes of Magic can be. And one which highlights another key factor making this game so great: the amazing RoMmunity!

To that end, we're launching a very special project. We're going to work together with you to create a trailer, one we can be proud to watch again and again. The trailer should also provide inspiration to new players to venture into the world of Taborea, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with you as they head out on their first adventures.

It's well worth your taking part – in recognition of your creative masterpieces, there are prizes worth over 1,000 euros up for grabs!

And it's not just the winners who'll get a taste of the cream.

Every submission that conforms to the terms and conditions of entry will be entered into a raffle.

  • ‘Video’ category winner: 1x Amazon gift card worth €250
  • ‘Testimonial’ category winner: 1x Amazon gift card worth €250
  • ‘Screenshot’ category winner: 1x Amazon gift card worth €100

Raffle winners:
  • 5x ‘Runes of Magic’ fan packs
  • 5x ROCCAT products
  • 5x Gameforge coupons

Want to take part in the contest? Then take an interesting, epic and magical screenshot or video clip of Chapter VII. Or make a testimonial video in which you explain your inspiration for playing RoM, what you love about it and/or why you would recommend the game to others. When recording a testimonial video, please ensure that the background you use is as plain as possible.

Full terms and conditions can be found below. Please read them carefully (in particular Section 3) to make sure your submission doesn't fall short because of technicalities, such as because your submission wasn't sent from a registered email address (see 3.4.a), or because you used music other than that made available by Gameforge (see 3.4.e)

We're looking forward to reviewing your submissions and are really excited to see the end result!

We would like to clarify some of your questions regarding what kind of music participants are allowed to use for the ‘video’ and ‘testimonial’ categories.

It is allowed to:

· Submit the video without the music.

· Submit the video containing music from the royalty free YouTube Audio Library.

· Submit the video containing the in-game Runes of Magic music.”


Thursday, September 8th 2016, 2:32pm

Due to recent events we would like to elaborate on article 3. (4) (d) of the terms and conditions:

d) The user interface should be hidden in submissions to the ‘screenshot’ and ‘video’ categories. In particular, chat messages and usernames of third-parties should not be recognisable.
  • The UI can be easily hidden by using the CTRL+ Z key combination.
  • However, in some cases it might be necessary to see the UI, e.g. if you would like to show certain features of the game. It is then exceptionally permitted to display it. Nevertheless, you have to ensure that the chat is not visible and that you do not infringe any rights of third-parties in other ways.
  • Before recording the video we would recommend you to go to “Functions > System (Esc) > Interface Settings” and to uncheck “Show Player Names” etc.
