    Default Second Annual Ghallanda Holiday Event!

    Hi everyone!

    Some of you might remember this from last year, and I'm sure there's new people snooping around too. Basically my guild co-founder and I are organizing a server-wide secret santa. Anyone that wants to participate simply needs to PM and/or post on the thread me their character's name and class (for a more class-appropriate gift) by December 17, on December 18th I'll be sending everyone the names of the character they are sending the gift too, and then on December 19th you send your gift out. I will send in-game mail to each of the participating characters giving them the name of the character they send the gift to. If you would prefer to get me in game, that works too. My main character (which is far more likely for me to be on) is Kestros. If I'm online then feel free to send me a tell, if not a letter works just as well.



    The gift can be anything reasonable, because I wouldn't expect a brand new level 1 character to be able to get their hands on some EE weapon. Just use your judgement and pick something that you feel would be a decent gift.

    One character per person please. I will be using the honor system for this event, so please be kind to others.

    I would like to assume that everyone will be friendly in the spirit of this winter-time event, but in the case that you don't have your present within a couple days of December 19 please let me know and I will personally send you something. I will be sending a reminder out a couple days prior to the 18th.

    Here's a breakdown of the important dates:

    - December 17: Last day to sign up for the event.

    - December 18: I will be mailing your character the name (and possibly other info) of the person you are giving your gift to. This should be by 10am EST.

    - December 19: Everyone will be sending the gift they picked out to whoever they are to give it to.

    The mail that tells you who your gift is to be sent to will be sent from either Kestros or Aerle, if it isn't from them then it isn't legit haha

    Last year we managed to get 34 people to participate, lets aim for 50 this year!

    Thumbs up

    I'm feeling very festive this year, so count me in. Thanks, Kestros and Aerle for hosting this event! (I wouldn't want to do it...too much work!)

    I think it's too soon for me to post which of my toons needs the love (and what lvl they will be around Dec 20), so i'll either update this post or let you know ingame closer to the event.


    Update: Zzt is my toon that needs the most love. She's trying to be a melee cleric; currently lvl 9 Halfling (Cleric 4/Bard 2/Fighter3). She'll be a swashie by lvl 11.

    I don't mean to be difficult but it's not very secret if you send the gift straight to the person you've been given! Hehe!

    It's a really nice idea though, so count me in

    Lol fair point, but Surprise Santa just doesn't have the same ring to it. Awesome, adding your name to the list
    One question though- are you a bow user, a dual wielder, or something else?

    Great, I'll be waiting for the name. Honestly it isn't THAT much work, and I enjoyed it last year so I figured we should do it again haha

    Getting MORE than the 34 Ghalladians who participated last year would be a great sign for our server and DDO in general. This is a very tight knit community compared to other games....

    Come on guild leaders... get your guilds involved!!!

    Default Sounds fun

    I'll do it with Jyhdif, who by then will likely be a level 20-22 Centered Kensai 8 fighter\6 monk\6 Pally using great axes or falchions.

    Would it be possible to get the name of the person I will be gifting a bit ahead of time? I am not always able to log in every day, so having a few extra days to get something nice together would be helpful.

    Cool, added
    For sure, I can give you a name early. Just can't do it for everyone since I won't be getting all the names until the night before I send out people's names
