    I think this is great as well!!

    Only one challenge I have with the whole thing:

    It states that Santa has "No Significant Properties".

    What the &*%$#!!!???

    That's SANTA for criminy sakes! SANTA!!

    Dude can fly a sleigh...fit down Chimneys...

    Deliver millions if not billions of gifts on a single night, by himself!!

    Maybe he can't shoot fireballs out of his hands...fine. But he didn't sign up for that! He is obviously not a bad ass Sampire who can tank almost anything in UO...I will give you that...

    But No Significant Properties??!11!1

    I think we are selling the old guy way short.

    Luckily , I am not closing any accounts over this...but boy...I AM a little steamed...

    :D

    Love the Advent Calendar, UO-style. It always reminds me of the real ones our church would give out every year when I was a kid. :)

    Not having his special suit doesn't mean he's naked. I invited people's children to open those doors!

    no I wouldn't either. But I'll happily follow the link in the OP to the Stratics advent calendar because I know exactly what's behind those doors.

    No, cuz the URLs for the opened images are predictable so I cheated and viewed them all. This is totally not what I used to do with real-life chocolate ones, honest. >.>

    So. Did anyone open them all?
    I was most pleased with the scene staged for 24th, but I wonder if anyone actually got as far as looking at it.
