Creating the Banner
Introducing a super contest going on with real life art in conjunction with The Banner Saga. Be one who takes part in creating something unforgettable as the family of community within the game as part of the ultimate Saga.
A Real Life Community Banner![edit | edit source]
The Banner Saga has been applauded by reviewers and fans alike for the art style, something that they are incredibly proud of. They've seen such great fan art for the game that it made sense to ask fans to assist in designing a real life banner. Stoic is looking for designs based on the traditional Viking runic art style as seen on the Godstones in the game...
One way of recording history in early Viking times was for each family to contribute (to actually sew) their own ‘saga’ onto their clan’s banner. Similarly, Stoic plans to include some of the best designs submitted in this contest to create a twelve foot banner depicting the fan’s experiences with the game, creating a community ‘saga’.
The Creating the Banner contest is now officially open for entrants to submit their original ‘Viking-style’ inspired designs at http://www.creatingthebanner.com . Winners will not only get their design included on the final life-sized banner, but they will also be sent a mini replica of the final banner for display. Full submission guidelines, rules and regulations can be found on the contest website. Submissions must be in by 11:59pm PT on Thursday March 13th, 2014.
