Get married, I say! Married!
Go big or go home! Trion Worlds is aiming to set a Guinness World Record on Valentine's Day by shooting for the most virtual marriages to be held in a 24 hour period! Of course, trying to get everyone married in one day will be a grueling task, but Trion is also planning a plethora of events to push players to tie the knot on this momentous day.
First, those who participate on Valentine's Day will receive an exclusive in-game title, "the Avowed," to commemorate the event. Trion GMs will also be out and about for the day to host impromptu wedding ceremonies, so if eloping to a customer service rep is your idea of romantic, well, we've got it all here in spades.
Finally, there will be a big contest for all you lovely couples! Trion is giving away five grand Wedding Packages on Valentine's day, with each package complete with new wedding wardrobe outfits and a personalized in-game broadcast. Finally, each wedding will also be hosted by none other than Rift's Community Manager, Elrar! To win, players will need to head to the competition thread on Rift's Official Polls & Contests Forum. On there, Rift is accepting story entries of around 300 words or less, detailing how online games played a role in your relationship. Your love doesn't need to have blossomed in Rift, so get creative and just include that online gaming element. Even if your partner doesn't play Rift, as long as they can show up to the event, they can still enjoy the festivities. Get brainstorming on those sappy, romantic stories! Best of luck to all!
