    Source: Christmas Elf?


    A Snowy Eve...

    It was a cold snowy night in... well somewhere near a North Pole.

    The leader of the National Elf Service inspected his latest recruits who, with startling regularity, were sllim, short and very elven.

    Until he got to the end of the line...

    He looked up into the kind, but very unusual, face.

    He patted the over-szed elf saying, "Maybe next year son."

    The tall elf waddled off and grabbed some bags of presents to prove he could do the job just as well as the other elves...

    [Look out for the Christmas Elf this coming week from Monday onwards!]

    Damn, have I really got to spend hours wandering round and finding nothing again?. I swore last time I wouldnt do this again. I never found the chars with the Stuffys? Carrots? cant remember exactly cos I never got any, last 2 or 3 times anyway.

    Last time I got anything was from the Easter bunny with eggs saying 'the Easter Bunny was here' whenever that was. Long time ago anyway. Just dont seem to have the luck for this type of event.

    Edit. Well only wasted 40 minutes this time and actually saw the Elf twice. Never got anything and had lag too bad to persist. Like I said I dont think these events are lucky for me.

    Hehe must admitt it was quite funny.

    But i don't remember being told i was gonna be in a screenshot would have striked a better pose.

    I also think the person playing the Horded Minion (i mean Elf) was quite funny
    i am guessing he/she is one hell of a RPer.

    Thanks again for my Pie Elf :thumbup:

    I was in Cove when this huge big red elf came bumbling up to me! Wishing me a Merry Christmas, he presented me with a mince pie! I gave him a tribal berry for his trouble!

    Thanks Elf!

    Me too, I was expecting another hide and seek but apparently they've posted a new entry on the EM website for today (23rd) and stressed not to be late. When there is a date interval for an event, you expect it to be the same each day. I also rely heavily on your posts for event news, so if there is no post, i dont consider it to be a real event. :)

    I seems Mapper posted the event too yet I didnt bother reading all the posts on the thread. So now I've officially missed the event.:sad4: On the bright side, just waiting for a gift is not that much of an event to miss. Maybe there will be something more exciting tomorrow.

    Thanks for screens SirZ, so that's what we couldnt see in EC?

    Well I'm glad they arranged to give out the gift at the Star Room, the dreaded lag which hits me every day and caused me to give up on the first 3 days was with me again.

    At least I was able to be there on time and was able to get through the gate despite the lag which meant I finally got a gift this year even though I crashed when I went through the gate after getting it.


    So from me a big thank you to the EMs for arranging at least one day which beat the lag for me.

    There seems to be a problem with our website. So I'll be posting here the next couple of days.

    Come to the Christmas Tree in Luna at around 8pm tonight. The Elf might be there again ;)

    I thought todays, merry christmas light hearted bit of fun was total BULL****. obviously the EM are NOT applying themselves, dropping these snowmen in the Tok spawns is moronic at best, are the sosaria lands not vast enough to choose a "fun" location


    sadly no drop,not too bothered, but definately NO fun

    Fail

    I thought it was good fun. :) Tokonu was small enough to find the 4 or 5 spawning places, and it was tough enough to kill a few people :)

    I saw Odin killing a few snowman without much trouble in Isamu, not all snowman were around difficult spawns. I unfortunately crashed a few times and couldnt log for 5 mins after one of the crashes. But managed to help in the killing of four snowman, solo killed another one. I was so sure I'd get a bread from the solo one that I've waited near the corpse for quite some time thinking if I wait enough, the bread will finally be visible.

    I think it was a fun event. :)
