On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

That's right. A pirate parody of The Twelve Days of Christmas.

I know I'm late. As some of you know, my husband has been away training for a few months, and leaves this morning for a year overseas. This was my one week with him and I decided to delay the event. Better late than never, right?

Prizes will only be awarded on Midnight ocean, and can be collected whenever I'm online (you can also AIM me at Pirate Muroni, or send a private message to arrange a time).

I've rewritten the song to include gifts available in game. Since we currently can't edit on the YPP forums, this is going to get a bit messy. Each question is going to have to have a new post, and you'll have to scroll through and check for the current question and make sure it hasn't been answered already. Sorry mates. I will be using a red font for questions, so please do not confuse the thread by posting in colors.

Each day represents a different day in the song, and I have as many gifts as that verse of the song says I should have. I'm going to start backwards with 12 of the cheapest gifts, and work my way to day one with only one gift to give. The gifts will get progressively more valuable as the days go. I'll post as many questions as I have items to give out. The questions for each day will all have a similar theme. Some questions you can look the answer up, some you'll know right away, some you'll have to guess, and some will be opinion and I'll simply pick the answer I like best. Some might be puzzles or challenges. Beware, some questions will even be trick questions! Most days I'll post one question at a time. The first person to give the correct answer (or in the case of an opinion question or challenge, the one I prefer), will win one of the day's prizes. Then I will post the next question. However, I should say up front that this format may change. If I find the day is almost over and feel rushed, or if I have many real world plans that will keep me away, I may post several or even all of the questions for the day at one time. I'll still only accept the first correct answer for each question. I'll attempt to post the first question around the very beginning of each day for me (I'm Eastern Time zone, so that is 9pm Pirate time I'll try to post the first question for the next day), but again, this isn't in stone. Should I fall asleep before Midnight, who knows when I'll wake up and post =P

This is a casual, simple, goofy, disorganized, semi-spontaneous and cheap event. Since I let you know that up front, please don't waste time tarting as I won't give a darn. It's really just a fun way for me to give out a few gifts this Holiday Season. I hope you have as much fun as I do playing along.

Rules? You can try to win as many days as possible, if you like. If the question is about you, and you happen to catch it, feel free to answer. Feel free to make multiple guesses, within reason. Other than that, here are the rules:
  • If the ability to edit returns mid-event, Do not edit your posts! Any posts which are edited will not be counted, sorry!
  • While you may make multiple attempts, you will only be eligible to win one prize daily.
  • If a question is about a specific person, please do not ask them the answer. I have no Nazi guards out looking for you, but I'm counting on your honor to keep it semi-fair.
  • No teams, please. This is individual prizes for an individuals competition.
  • Posting in colors other than the default, black, will not only make me angry, but disqualify you from this event and any other future event I decide to hold. Sorry to be so strict, but it's going to be messy enough as it is.
Can't think of anything else, off the top of my head, so Good Luck!

Re: On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

Yes Pipeline, it's ok. You were not intentionally trying to make it difficult for folks to find the most recent question so you're cool =P

Pipeline wins the first driftwood.

The next question will take some guessing, but I have not been to bed yet, so I need the time anyway. When I wake up, whoever was closest without going over, wins. The second question is:

2. How many Grunions does Muroni own?

Re: On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

I've woken up, so yukinon wins as closest without going over (actual grunion count of all sizes, 107). Now that I'm awake, I'll be checking back about every half hour, folks =)

3. What is Muroni's injury?

Re: On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

blinkkid is correct. Muroni's injury is a hook.

Next Question:
4. At what island did Muroni receive her injury?

*If there were multiple blockades of that island, I'm not concerned with the specific blockade number. I'm only looking for the island name, so feel free to take a quess if you have no idea =)

I think Yukinon knows that, so it's more a hint to the rest of you sleepy over-partied pirates.

Re: On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

Dear God, thank you Satin. I was wondering if anybody else was going to type it. =P Satin wins that one, on to the next.
I'm going to start doing a few at a time, since the forums don't seem to be very active in Events today =P

5. What is currently Muroni's favorite ship duty station?
6. What is currently Muroni's favorite game to play at the Inn?

Re: On the twelfth day of Christmas, Muroni gave to me...

Either you're a good guesser, or you're friends with a flagmate who is playing along on my flag version of the event, lmao

In either case, 8 months is correct, Knarf. That is how many months are left on my subscription.

Next question:
9. What does Muroni's YPP forum name, "Imwamphyr", mean?
