Welcome to the “Artists & Authors United” – your nexus for creativity, collaboration, and boundless imagination! As a vibrant community of artists and authors, we’re dedicated to fostering an environment where creativity knows no bounds, and every member can find inspiration, support, and camaraderie.

Excitement is brewing on the horizon as we gear up for our most thrilling season of events yet in 2024 – the Dragon Riders Season! This year, we’re calling upon our members to embark on a fantastical journey, embracing the spirit of adventure, mystique, and the ancient bond between dragon and rider.

Our Dragon Riders Season will unveil an array of special events designed to ignite your creativity and fuel your passion. Members will have the opportunity to illustrate their main characters (MCs) in awe-inspiring dragon-themed cosplay, aligning with one of four majestic admin team houses:

  • Red House with Kayden and the Guardians: Knights and paladins ruling the skies, embodying the house of the air.
  • Blue House with Xepholen: Crafty rogues navigating the depths, representing the house of the water.
  • Gold House with Rayth: Enigmatic dragonkin weaving their magic, from the house of noxious.
  • Silver House with Rhea: Mages and sorcerers commanding the ethereal silver flame, leading the house of the silver flame.

This season will feature two main collaborations and the potential for more mini-events, ensuring a rich tapestry of engagement and excitement. Get ready for themed role-playing mini-events, Dungeons & Dragons (DnD) sessions that promise epic adventures, item collection quests within our server, and crossover fanart features that celebrate the blending of worlds and characters.

The Dragon Riders Season officially begins in Spring 2024, kicking off with our cosplay illustration entries and the enchanting chibi collaboration. We invite you to join us today and become part of a community that celebrates the power of imagination and the unbreakable bonds of creative fellowship.

Dive into a world where dragons soar, magic reigns, and your creativity can take flight. Join Artists & Authors United now, and let’s make 2024 a year of unforgettable adventures and unparalleled creativity!
