    Greetings Sosaria!

    Tis I, Jimmy the Hand bringing you another holiday world first!

    As we all know, Telamon puts a great deal of effort in to all events, Christmas being one of the most glorious of all. As some of you may know, I had a lucky break last year with the Naegling drop!
    So this year I'd like to help kick off the Christmas season with an event of my own devising.

    I present to you:


    [​IMG]

    Concept:

    The idea is simple, those who are participating simply have to PM me any character names they wish to use in the event and then from now until the event ends, carry a book on them titled "Merry Christmas!". I will proceed to do my usual stalking about and hunt participants down, when found I will steal the event book and to the best of my abilities get the hell outta dodge!

    If the participant who has been stolen from kills me, all loot upon my corpse is theirs for the taking.

    When:

    From the moment this post hits the forums I will consider the event started. The event will run from then until my reward stockpile is empty.

    How To:

    • PM me one or many character names.
    • Carry a book on those characters titled "Merry Christmas" (feel free to leave a message within!)
    • If and when the book is stolen by me, chase and kill me.
    • Claim your reward from my corpse.
    • If you would like, take a screenshot or post in this thread about how it went down and what loot you did or didn't get! :)

    Rules:

    • You must carry a book titled "Merry Christmas!" upon the character, else I won't make a steal (there'd be no book to snatch!).
    • Any and all forms of killing me are valid, this most definitely includes calling the guards.
    • Optional: Hang about 2minutes and throw me a rez if you're able!

    Prizes:

    Each time I head out I will perform a dice roll to select a bag which will contain loot. This method, combined with never knowing who will be where or if a steal is possible, along with random routes, should provide a solid randomness to the drops from me. Hopefully this way everything is fair and enjoyable!

    Prizes include Checks, Platinum, Elf/Dark Elf Slayer Weapons and Instruments, Christmas Instance Scrolls, Event Clothing and some "Better luck next time" types as well!

    EDIT: New (non xmas but still great) prizes include spawning rares, armour(s) of invulnerability, Level 7 TMap, additonal cash prizes and I found some more clothing to get killed in! :)

    Examples of what you might find in a bag on my corpse:

    Look out for me folks, I'll likely look a little similar to this:

    I hope we get a few participants, have a lot of a fun and folks on the shard currently unaware become a little bit more so about the great work @Chris puts in with events for us all :)
    Finally; if anyone wants to donate some Christmas themed loot, feel free to PM me regarding that and we can get it added to a bag.

    I agree, I only specified PM as some folks prefer to keep some character names non-public :)

    Surely this must be a test of hand dexterity. Or backpack security training? As such, dare I even suggest, no other items shall be stolen?

    Regardless, count me in! Character name Khal'Des.

    You should also post a list of your successful acts of pickpocketing. ;)

    Heh, it could be used as training and testing, sure.

    As for no other items stolen, if I see a character that is participating I will be stealing the event book as a priority and making a break for it.

    A lack of book while participating will likely result in me leaving you alone. But, y'know, a guy has to make a living too ;)

    Some new loot added!

    Suggestion and donation from @Rockers has resulted in some spawning rares being added to loot bags from both of our collections :)

    Also, for those of you who may be like me and not bother to actually read the post, You just have to buy your own book (off any NPC) and change the title of the book to "Merry Christmas".

    haha. *points to self* "Dolt"

    I wish you all good luck in "hunting" the Christmas Spirit :)

    Thanks @Jupiter for some donations!

    With more bank checks, some invul stuff and even a L7 TMap, I think we're nearing a 1mil Prize Pool :)

    A few more donations, thanks folks! (Not sure what forum handle to thank for the most recent one though..)

    Here's a more enticing pic of just SOME of the prizes on offer!

    All armour is invul, all weapons and instruments are Elf or Dark Elf slayer.
