    I logged in during that period. My account was active. But I didn't get anything. Seems like typical UO

    I believe your account had to be active during November to get gifts. It's always been that for gifts, being active before a certain point comes into play.

    A list is captured of all accounts and their existing characters a few weeks before the drops. If the character is on the list, then when they hit 30 days old (by actual creation date) during the drop period, they will get an item (ones already older than 30 days will get them on the first day they log in).

    So, if the only way that you could get a gift on a newly created character created it on December 1 (and maybe on the 2nd). An account that wasn't listed as active when the list was captured might not be eligible for gifts at all.

    However, you really didn't miss much. Everyone probably has extra Power Scroll books, and the other stuff was so-so this year. It was such that I didn't even bother trying to collect on other shards for trading this year.
