Hail, Norrath! On behalf of everyone in Valhallah on the Firiona Vie server, I would like to announce the guild's fifth annual holiday giveaway! There will be lots of raid items from TBL, TOV, and COV given away through various events that all have their own little twist, including hide-and-seek, a scavenger hunt, /random rolls, and some EQ-related trivia! This will take place on the Firiona Vie server at the Arena stone in the Plane of Knowledge on Friday, December 17 at 8:30PM Eastern (click HERE for a generated list of time zone conversions!). Please keep in mind that you're more than welcome to attend even if you don't play on the Firiona Vie server! All of the items are tradeable, so they can easily be converted into Krono which can then be taken with you to your home server(s)! Please note that Firiona Vie, the "Roleplay Server," doesn't have a common tongue, and therefore the most common language is plain, regular Elvish. Please make sure your character can fluently speak and understand the language so you can interact with everyone! In addition to the in-game events, we're also taking this a step further by creating some forum-based contests. We've done this before in the past, and we've opted to do this again since it somewhat "personalizes" the holidays beyond the decorations and pixels we see in-game! What we're asking to see is a display of your holiday creativity! Rumor has it that Valhallahclaus has upwards of 30 Kronos (and possibly even more if enough partake!) to divide amongst the best submissions in several categories listed below. Best holiday-themed guild plot. It would be great if you could include an in-game address so we can come see the decorations firsthand! Best holiday-themed personal plot. It would be great if you could include an in-game address so we can come see the decorations firsthand! If you're more into creative writing, we're also looking to pick the best holiday-themed poems, stories, or songs that you create and share with the community. While they don't have to be EQ-themed, it obviously holds more "weight" if they are (given the audience!). Holiday-themed pets! Take your best friends and deck them out in holiday-themed apparel and/or accessories to create the most purrrrrrfect(!) holiday-themed pet picture! Bonus points if you can capture them in front of your EQ display! Tell us what you find special about the holidays in EverQuest! So many of us still playing the game have very deep roots and connections to decades worth of stories and memories, and it would be cool to hear about anything that you hold dear to you and yours as it pertains to EQ around this time of year! We ask that you post your submissions as replies to this thread, and of course, please make sure they follow all applicable forum guidelines! The guild will get together to judge the submissions so that winners are chosen and announced shortly after Christmas (I'm cautious about giving an exact date since much of the guild will be away from the game spending time with their friends and families, so we'll therefore give everyone ample time and say sometime during the last week of December! Check back with this thread for updates!). If there are any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask! You can post in this thread, or take a shot at contacting the Valhallah leadership at firiona.Caisy (caisy#8529), firiona.Slivern (slivern#3448), firiona.Ssdar (ssdar#2314), firiona.Reisil (reisil#3210), firiona.Bleve (bleve#5327), and/or firiona.Amanyta (scaethach#1345). Their respective Discord tags are also available in parentheses. Thank you kindly for reading, and we hope to see as many submissions as possible to bring all the best smiles, laughs, and holiday cheer! Take care, and all of the best to you and yours from Valhallah this holiday season!
