FR Secret Santa 2018

Unread post by Varethyn » Wed Dec 05, 2018 4:36 pm

Hey all! I realise this is a little late as December has already started, but I had the thought to bring something like this back this year and wondered if anyone would be interested in it :)

To join, simply reply with your FR tag and that you'd like to participate! I will keep a list of participants in the second post :)

It's a little tight since I thought of this so late but the deadline will be the 14th (might be extended depending on interest). I will then send out PMs on the following 15th with the name of the person you'll be gifting. (People are allowed to enter past the deadline, but be aware that there may not be anyone to pair with because of it.) Given the likelihood of people being busy for a few days over the Christmas period I will divvy out presents (hopefully) on the 29th, giving you all plenty of time to do some thinking as to what you want to get your partner.

Ideally the spending limit is 20k, though if you find something worth more (or less) that you know your partner will enjoy then go for it! Try not to spend too much however - it's supposed to be fun for both sides after all :) As for the present itself, that's completely your choice! Comb through your giftee's lair for ideas of dragons they like, offer them food for their stocks, treasure or gems are often enjoyed and I know we have collectors of apparel and familiars about. If you have a creative mind, maybe do some art or write a story for them! The options are limited only by your imagination.

Please post your gift in this thread and try to guess who sent it! It'd be great to share what everyone got :D (Item images may need to be uploaded and hosted elsewhere as copy/pasting from Flight Rising doesn't work for everyone. Failing that, just type it out or take a screenshot.)

I will don the title of Santa and remain completely impartial during the event. Once I give out your names you can report to me privately about the person you received to find out more, such as asking what familiars they may be missing so you can find ones they need. Because of this I will not be pairing with anyone or receiving my own gifts.

DO NOT post here saying what you want from your Secret Santa. That defeats the entire point of the event. Only state things you definitely do NOT want.
DO NOT send PMs to your partner regarding the event before the gifts are sent, as they're not supposed to know until the very end. PM me if you get stuck!
Gifted dragons should be kept for at least a month before you decide to let go of it without seeking permission from the giver first.

What a neat idea! But i'm going to have to pass this year. :( I have too much going on with my husband in a manic episode, and I have no idea if I'll have the ability or time to devote to it. We're not even having Christmas irl this year. it's just not in the cards right now. I do look forward to watching though. :)

I truly am sorry Dew. I've seen your posts in the rant thread and seriously, seriously hope you are able to find some peace :hug:

This doesn't necessarily need to be a strictly Christmas thing but I respect your wishes, Tarn :)

Yeah I know it´s just Santa kinda goes with christmas so :) I am more sensitive now than I used to be. I know it can be hard to understand but I just want to steer clear of anything which relates to chrismas :D

Hee thanks for the extensive list of well-wishes Rawr :) I'm sorry for the poor timing of this. Hope the move goes smoothly!

Could I partake?

Text on flight rising. I do have to say please no dragons as gifts for me. I’m locked on space because I’m not planning on anymore dragons for some time.

So what happens if we have gifts ready to send off? Do we give them to you?

Whoops I thought I put that in the first post. My bad.

Yup, once you're satisfied with the gift you got for your receiver please send them to me as I will hand them out on the 29th. It doesn't matter when you send it to me however, so if you'd rather wait until closer to the date then that is fine :) Likewise if you've already sent me your gift but find something else you think your receiver might like then feel free to send it over as well!
