Super stoked about this year's event, the last year was a major success in my opinion; everyone did an awesome job and we all had our fun. Also Pat got a kiss from Saoire last year, he wants her all to himself this year. :P

OOC Note: As of Ashan 717 Patrick has been cursed with Sesser, therefore once a season he's at risk of turning into a Sessfiend. Should the occassion actually come to occur, PC's are warned to consider the extreme risk of injury and even their life; before proceeding to participate in the event. Looking forward to the potential plots and threads to come!

No gifting post templates OOC this year? How come? :(

I’m glad you’re as excited as we are, Patrick! :D

Duncan, only a few players participated in gifting templates OOC last year. Some of them didn’t end up following through, which meant staff had to do some extra work to create templates last minute so their partners wouldn’t miss out. This year, we want to keep everything IC through meaningful gifts, and we encourage anyone who wants to gift a template to do so outside of this particular event. I’m sure an unexpected new template, with or without the event, would be welcomed by anyone! :)

Yay, this looks great, and I would love to take part on a PC, however there are restrictions on all of my PCs when it comes to finances and stuff...

So.. like... what if.. you're poor? Or play a slave?

Hiya!

Three questions, if I may:

1. I might well be missing it - but the event says this year the worth of the gift should be "at least 50gn" - is there an upper limit?

2. Is it likely to be kept to one pc only? I keep changing my mind which pc! LOL.

3. If an item isn't on the price list, should we just clarify with a prophet - and what about Point Bank items?

Thank you! Very excited to be taking part in this again this year. It was such a great success last year, it's great!

Great questions, both!

@Whisper: This may not be the easiest event for slave PCs to participate in, unfortunately. A slave will still have the same item restrictions that they would usually have, meaning they cannot earn anything of value aside from clothing and small trinkets.

If you’re OOC poor (ie. don’t have 50gn), you may come up with an alternative solution and run it by Nymph or I to see if that works. You may also consider taking out a loan and paying that loan back with future wages.

If you’re IC poor but have 50gn, you may want to consider using an IC plot device to obtain the item (ex. stumbling across it, stealing it, regifting, etc).

@Faith: 1. I might well be missing it - but the event says this year the worth of the gift should be "at least 50gn" - is there an upper limit? There’s no upper limit, but we imagine most gifts will be between 50gn – 100gn.

2. Is it likely to be kept to one pc only? I keep changing my mind which pc! LOL. We would prefer folks keep this to one PC (if only to make randomized pairings easier!) but you/others may sign up with more than one if you’re having a hard time deciding.

3. If an item isn't on the price list, should we just clarify with a prophet - and what about Point Bank items? Yep, you can clarify the item with Nymph or I when you send it to us after we pair you up! And Point Bank items are fine, as long as they’re approved by one of us.

Thanks!

Just to clarify on the PC aspect and lack of funds: We are happy to work with you on this. Slaves are incredibly difficult, especially if they are not privately owned and in Augiery. You would potentially get a gift and then promptly lose it. That would not be fair to your slave PC. We encourage, that if you are able, to pick another PC to enter into this event. Special loan can be provided upon request. Just ask myself or Rumour and we can discuss it further.

Duncan: The other reason we pulled the OOC aspect is that there will be an OOC event, I believe, overlapping this event. We had to consider all desires during this season. Hopefully you will still join us in the IC aspect of this event!

Exciting news! Everyone who has been put in the City option has been paired up, and everyone who has been put in the Global option has been randomly matched. PMs will be going out from myself and/or Nymph this weekend so that you can begin plotting your gifts.

Thank you to all of you who signed up for this event! We're looking forward to a great holiday season.
