    In preparation for the upcoming 2018 account drive, we're looking for a video to show people what SoD is all about.

    1st: 1000 fame
    2nd: 500 fame
    3rd: 250 fame

    A reminder of our current Fame rewards system:

    I would suggest any promotional videos/ads bring up the social aspects.

    Best times I ever had with this game were the people I've grouped/raided with regularly.

    I even know a few folks who met on SoD and are currently married.

    You can use OBS (open broadcast system) to record your game, and save it locally instead of pushing to a service like Twitch.
    https://obsproject.com/

    OR

    In Windows 10 click Windows key + G to open the built in game recorder. It records EQ just fine

    If you have an NVIDIA video card you could also use their geforce software to record in-game footage.

    by "free camera footage" I mean in game, able to freely move through the zone to get angles and shots from high up without having to levitate my toon and search for ways to scale a wall to get to a high enough point to get some cool shots

    May be worth while to mention(not in the promo) some zones are not very photogenic from higher points of view as some textures are non existant because the designers assumed everyone would be viewing the zone from ground level. So may want to consider that when choosing aerial shots. tend to find out these things when using lev just to get to high places for no particular reason.

    I was planning on submitting something but just couldn't find time to get it all done before the deadline. Could have it by the end of this week even if fame is off the table.
