Hail, Norrath! On behalf of everyone in Valhallah on the Firiona Vie server, I would like to announce the guild's fourth annual holiday giveaway! Hundreds of TOV raid items, spells, and augments will be 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 in the Plane of Knowledge on Friday, December 18 at 8PM 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)! In addition to the in-game events, we're also taking this a step further by creating some forum-based contests. I'm sure I can speak for the majority when I say that "2020" has taken its toll on everyone in some form or fashion. It has no doubt been a very long, challenging, and difficult year for lots of people, and while we'd still be doing our giveaway regardless, we wanted to make it a little extra special by spreading as much joy and cheer as possible! What we're asking to see is a display of your holiday creativity! Rumor has it that Valhallahclaus has upwards of 40 Kronos (and possibly even more if enough partake!) to divide amongst the best submissions in several categories listed below. Keep in mind these are the categories that readily popped into our heads and will serve as a great place to start. If there's something that you really want to share or design in the spirit of spreading holiday cheer to this forum's audience, please do so as long as it abides by the forum guidelines! Best holiday-themed guild plot, house, guild hall, etc. 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!). Ugly sweater contest for your character! We know there's not a huge variety of cosmetic options in-game for something like this, so you're more than welcome to get as creative as you like! Use any kind of in-game items and/or augment your screenshot through creative MS Paint and/or Photoshop modifications to create the best "Ugly EQ Christmas Sweater" portrait you can! 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! 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 for the weekend of Christmas (sometime between December 26-27, pending our availability due to holiday festivities). 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.Mallakhi (mallakhi#6639), 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 create as many smiles, laughs, and holiday cheer as possible! Take care, and all of the best to you and yours from Valhallah this holiday season!
