    It's story time again.
    It's the time of the year, in which we start to collect gifts and get characters out of the dust, which rarely see the light of the day.
    On Sonoma I had such a character, which was stuck in a strange dungeon like location since several years. Captured in a small room, without any means to escape (besides stuck call). But since I was curious, what strange location this might be, I left the character there in the hope to reveal the secret at a later time.
    Well, today was this time.
    Logged in, and suddenly the char not only got his gift, but also was surrounded - by Lizardmen and Ogre Lords! Right now I knew the place. The New Haven mines! Run! (Lucky, not even overloaded, as some other characters roaming taverns... .) Only equipped with the newbie candle for a small circle of light and newbie cloth I tried to find a way out of the darkness.
    Unfortunately I found that rope only, after the environment got enlightened, since a ghost sees so much better than a living character even with dark nights off.
    Well, since New Haven on Sonoma was pretty deserted in this time of the day, there is no chance to recover the body.
    So all the neat gift boxes from several years, the (not so freshly) picked rose and similar stuff go now to make the Ogre Lords happy, while my character remains with a cluttered backpack full of blessed stuff.

    And what can you learn from this story:
    Always use hiding with your gift getting characters, you never know, if you wake up surrounded by monsters (which even happened in taverns in the past).

    Yes, I am ressed by one of them, but I could not run down into the arms of the waiting ogre lords without seeing more than the circle of the candle.

    Your gift's are Blessed anyway so no need to run back in?

    Too bad, that the boxes are worth a good bunch of cleanup points, and those are not blessed. Also some of the gifts aren't - like the freshly picked roses we got some years ago.
