    In its early years, Vesper, a bustling port and mercantile city, had a steady trade in walrus. The walrus gave food, pelts, and ivory to Vesper. Walrus oil kept its lanterns burning through the cold, dark nights of winter. At this, the darkest time of the year, the people of Vesper give thanks for the creature that sustained their ancestors.

    This year, Vesper will observe the Walrus Festival on Friday, December 17th. Meet at the Vesper docks at 8 p.m. CST.

    P.S. Bring snowballs!

    I had a real life holiday party to attend and could not make this event.
    How was it ?
    Any screenshots ?

    I will be so bummed out if holiday eye candy was handed out at this event and I missed it!

    More importantly.......did anyone get any walrus blubber ? I hear it is good as a moisturizer and great for cooking. ;)

    Oh gosh, don't let the walruses hear you say that, they already tried to kill all the humans once this year :eyes: Here are two screenshots from the event last night and a message to everyone from the leaders of the walrus retribution movement.

    Santa's elves did appear at the end bearing gifties, but they'll be around several more times in the next few days. They'll also be visiting Felucca with goodies appropriate for that land :eek:

    Thank you for the screenshots, esp the close up of Bucky. :)

    So many real life holidays things to attend to. Hopefully old Lady Lava can be around when goodies are handed out again.


    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ELIZABELLA!

    Santa's Elves will be traveling the land a lot this week. They have some adorable goodies.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, Lady Lava :)
