BioWare, Summer Conventions + Mass Effect 4

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 13, 2015, 4:20 PM

Mass Effect Latest News


Mass Effect 4, now officially Mass Effect: Andromeda was finally announced over the E3 convention last month, recently followed by additional news recaps for fans at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend. BioWare fans, we can expect a holiday 2016 release!



It was confirmed in 2014 that the story WILL NOT feature the iconic Commander Shepard of the first three games, but the demo trailer DOES feature an N7 operative exploring new planets and terrains. (Plus return of the Mako.) Representations of the character can be seen online complete with questionably plausible female proportions and all.

A signed, sneakpeek concept art litho of Andromeda was also given away to fans who dropped by the Dark Horse booth at Comic Con. So here's a look at what the new game setting will look like:



Dragon Age News


A new Dragon Age comic, Dragon Age: Magekiller was also announced just before San Diego Comic Con, and creators were onsite to sign new posters for fans.

"Dragon Age: Magekiller introduces two new characters to Dragon Age lore: Tessa and Marius are mercenary partners, eliminating those who use blood magic to hurt others, but when a powerful patron employs them, they realize this next job may be their last…"

In addition to the news releases, Dark Horse and BioWare have also collaborated to release this gorgeous Dragon Age: Inquisition playing card set:

What else have you missed?



An epic "fansmeet" at Comic Con gathered a large group of dedicated fans and cosplayers for some awesome photos. Checkout Mike Laidlaw's Twitter feed for more pix of the amazing turnout!



Two new DLCs for Dragon Age: Inquisition have been released in the last couple months, plus a drool-worthy expansion to the earlier "Dragonslayer": if you haven't downloaded the Dragonslayer DLC yet, let's just say that that will unlock a *very* familiar fan favorite character!

FREE DLC: The Black Emporium "adds four high-level stores that sell epic weapons, powerful accessories, new crafting materials and schematics, and other hard-to-find items. Change your facial appearance with the Mirror of Transformation. Accessible from the war table, The Black Emporium provides even more ways to customize your Inquisition."

NEW DLC: Spoils of the Avvar "adds new personalization elements to your Inquisition, including the Avvar Mount Pack, which contains five different beasts to ride across Thedas. Charge into battle atop a war-painted mount! Bring the unfettered spirit of the Avvar to Skyhold with several options to customize your base. The Spoils of the Avvar content pack also includes two sets of unique armor as loot and schematics to give your party the advantage against your foes."

Illustrated Art Submission GuidelinesOk. We get it that you’re busy. And maybe don’t have a lot of time to read. But here at the club, we’re trying to keep up with our motto to collect the best of the best by fans, for fans, you know? So we gotta have standards. Yup, standards. And we’re not trying to say you shouldn’t submit anything just because you’re not a pro. But we do want to see the best of what you’ve got when you submit!
To make things easy, we’ve updating our posting guidelines here with pictures! You’ll probably still want to read our full guidelines if you’re a rules stickler (and also if you get declined) but we’ll go over the basics.
The number one and most important rule: The BioWare Fan Club will only accept FAN created work fully done by you, digitally or traditionally. We’re not picky about whether you drew it by hand or as a photo-manipulation, but it does need to show EFFORT and it needs to be r

BioWare Fan Club ValuesHi folks!  There has been a some debate about copyright issues in association with fanart on the BioWare communities lately. Without naming any names, I want to set folks straight on what we do and do not allow as a fan community, and how to protect yourself as a fan writer and artist.
Our humble BioWare Fan Club began as a handful of fans who really loved all things BioWare. We just wanted to have a place to share our fan created artworks and stories. It’s been amazing that we have since grown into a real community with hundreds of members. Wow.
As a club, we don't claim credit for creating the worlds or the characters, and do not try to profit commercially from our works. The joy of having a fan community is to be able to share, and indulge in your love of a shared universe. I very much want to keep the BioWare Fan Club as a SAFE place to share and express our mutual appreciation of BioWare works. Please join me in keeping it positive.
We’re a Fan Commun

Hi. An Instagram account (called "mass_effect_lovers" can be found here: instagram.com/mass_effect_love… ) has been reposting a bunch of Mass Effect fanart without any credit (she credit ONE of them as far as I've seen).
I've asked them (well, it's a her) to credit -politely- and they just deleted my comment. I recognized a bunch of works from DA, though can't remember the names, a lot I didn't though cause I'm not really active in the fandom (or DA, recently.

I know some artists don't care about receiving credit etc. But I think people should know about what's going on.

Maybe the group could post a journal about this? Or whoever is reading this post a journal to your friends? or go directly to the artists she's taken art from and alert them? Just any help really.
She's gonna keep doing it to other artists.... maybe if a lot of her posts are reported, she gets banned, or something. I never said another word to her cause she can just block me (and she hasn't taken anything of mine), then I wouldn't be able to even see her account. So the best way would be to report each post.

Reporting copyright infringement on Instagram is kinda annoying, but it's not too hard and you don't need an Instagram account.
I posted about this on a ME group but I guess people don't care. I'm trying a second time but I guess if no one bothers so I'll just leave it alone and keep an eye on her in case she takes something of mine. Finding all the original art is hard because they're so many, it would be easier if people who are active on the fandom can recognize the owners of the pictures and report them.
