    There use to be a tradition on the Shard....every Dec the O*S and friends would take everyone down to DOOM and have a massive Gauntlet run. We would loop the dungeons a few times while spamming macros of our favorite carols. A few of us would take old deco items and dress up the dungeon for some holiday cheer.

    It is my understanding that this hasn't happened for a few years....I am the only Active remaining O*S member in the game. But my new family K^S would surely help out! All Guilds would be welcome...enemies and friends check their animosity at the door and all have fun for an evening and share some Christmas cheer.

    IF there is interest....and I will gauge that by those replying here....I will make this happen again as my gift to all my friends and enemies past and present! I believe in this event and I believe we need to cease hostilities for one night....and remember...The Reason for the SEASON!

    I saved 75,000 demon bones during the doom drop event recently, so I can donate quite a bit of gold skulls to ensure everyone has access.

    Edit: Ill start converting them this evening.

    We did this one other year and it was a lot of fun. But I do not recall the Dark Father and his friends feeling festive.

    We can be flexible...but I would suggest either Friday the 19th...or Saturday the 20th....

    Thoughts?

    Saturday the 20th is the Knights Rest Holiday party, so the 19th works for me.

    Thanks for pointing that out John...lets not double book over an existing event...

    So it is looking like the 19th...unless someone else has something already scheduled.

    Wow has anyone told Anne? She still plays! A lot more than people realize I am guessing.
    I think she would be happy to be remembered since she pretty much invented this event back in the day.
    I hope someone lets her know!
    If any of you would like me to give her a call let me know. I don't think she reads the forums as often as she used to!

    Wow, talk about a throwback! These were lots of fun in the day.

    Thanks Flutter and TW for letting me know about it. I don't read the boards much anymore even though I'm around in game and TW and I hadn't talked for a bit, what with one thing and another, so I appreciate you both thinking of me. I'd love to try to come. I'll see what I have left for deco that I can dig out and bring along.

    Hmmm, now where did I put my song list....

    Dropped off my skulls in Mares mailbox this morning. Was able to farm 40 of em. Hope that is enough for the festivities. Don't forget, a full party travels together for price of 1 skull.

    Wow what a night and what a great turn out....this shard rocks...
    We came...
    We sang...
    And we slaughtered them!
    I want to thank all of our wonderful donors of deco....the gauntlet never looked so festive!
    I want to thank Xavier for all his effort farming bones and farming skulls.
    And I want to thank My old friend Anne Nomilly for deco, skulls and support/advice.
    Thanks everyone...for putting old grudges aside for a night and remembering the reason for the season.

    Happy holiday to one and all!
