Announcing the Skycycle Flash Fiction Contest

Skycycles are coming to TERA...but from where? Who created these strange flying machines? What do those markings on the sides mean?

Well, to be honest, we’re hoping you’d already know. That’s why we’re holding a TERA Skycycle flash fiction contest, in which you might become an honorary member of the TERA writing team!

Write between 200 and 800 words about these great new mounts, and send your submission to, with the subject line "Skycycle Contest," and your submission as a .txt file attachment. The contest runs from now until midnight PST on Tuesday, January 3*, and the results will be announced by Community Manager Spacecats during the weekly TERA livestream on Friday, January 13.

One grand-prize winner receives their choice of an account-bound Skycycle-MHZ or Jetcycle-MHZ, and their story becomes official TERA lore, recorded by the baraka elders and stored within the Halls of Knowledge. Two runner-ups receive character-bound versions of either the Skycycle-MHZ or Jetcycle-MHZ.

For those who don’t want to wait that long to go for a ride, Skycycles will also be featured in this year’s Golden Gift box event. Full details of the event will be announced soon, but you’re definitely going to want to set aside some quality time with your friends!

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get your lore on!
