Gosh Dangit Ads, Leave Me Be


So it's that time after October but before December when all the companies start putting out their Black Friday Deals ads, and while all I want for Christmas is a little bit of a break between Halloween and Saturnalia, we can't deny that Mariah Carey is ever thawing. I'm too tired to fight back this year, so instead I'm making a Secret Santa thread early, this way, hopefully, it can be well organized and give people time to get their stuff together.



I've got too many ideas and not enough space in one post, so I'll be breaking this up and giving it a table of contents. Under said table will be a spot where I list any questions people have that I thought were important, so everyone else can see.

Happy Turkey Day.

QnA
Do the price ranges in Secret Santa count for items and currency, or pets too?
Yes, the prices count for everything, pets, items, and currency. It can also be split up between multiple items/pets, or the whole gift can be just one thing. Just try not to go above or below the limits for the tier you've signed up to join.

Will we be sending you the items for the Secret Santa, or will we give them straight to our giftee?
You will be giving them straight to your giftee

Secret Santa

Sign-ups start whenever this thread opens and ends the 30th of November, Santas will be assigned and informed on the 1st of December. After that you'll have until the day before Stockings can be opened to finalize your gifts, and until the end of the event to give those prizes to your assigned person.


I will add the actual dates as I learn about them.




This thread will run a few different price tiers, so no one has to worry about the gifts being too expensive, or getting something really underwhelming compared to what they gave. Everyone is allowed to enter any tier they want, and if you feel it would be easier you may fill out the form for each tier your joining. Please just keep it to one post, unless you change your mind at least 5 days later. If any tiers only have one person, I'll give them the choice of either joining a different tier, or letting me be their 'Secret' Santa.

If you sign up and later find out you won't be able to partake, please tell me, or at least try to, if you can't I won't be mad. On that note, if anyone hasn't confirmed their gift they're giving by the set date, their Santa's gift will be given instead to who they were supposed to be gifting (If A doesn't confirm their gift for B, A's Santa C will instead give their gift to B.)

White Elephant Game

Someone suggested this to me and I thought it would be funny. For this white elephant game, the price range for entries will be 50k-150k gold. To keep it fair I obviously won't be joining. If you want to partake just ping me or include somewhere in another post that you want to join. Sign-ups will start when this thread opens, and end the 30th of November. The game itself will start on the 1st of December and run until the every item runs out of steals. You will be allowed to put multiple things into the prize pool.


The way the White Elephant will work is that some time after they sign up and before the game begins, participants will need to pm me with their entry, and a description of the item. In the spirit of wrapping your entry in a misleading way, you are allowed to be as misleading as you want, as long as I deem it still accurate.

An example of this would be calling a Ginkgo Harvester's Fawn held item a 'Young quadrupedal mammal with plants growing out of it.'

You can also put in a group of items together, for example, multiple lesser dyes. This will be considered one entry and will have one description.

On the day before the game I will collect all the prizes, and set up the board for the game in the next post. Every entry will start out in the middle, and can be stolen three times once it's been taken from the middle. Everyone gets one turn for every entry they put into the pool, but once they take an entry that will have been stolen for the third time by them, they'll be removed from the turn cycle (In the case of someone having more than one turn per cycle, they'll have one less turn in the next cycle.) Once a prize has been stolen three times, it's identity will be revealed and given to the player who won it.

I will reach out to everyone via pm on their turn, and update the thread as the game goes on, keeping track of who holds each item and how many times it can still be stolen. If anyone doesn't respond after two days without warning me before hand, they will be skipped. Once all the prizes have been revealed, the game is over.

Participants List
Tigress - 1 entry
Hershy
Wyckedone
Amastoneonal
Kermitscappuccino - 5 entries
