The Twelve Days of Christmas! Dec 8-19 Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

As posted in both the calendar and in this thread, details on today's familiar tournament:

Drinking tournament today will be at 4pm PST and will be a single game per round. Default settings.

In the spirit of saving some time, here's the last verse for you, which also coincides with the order in which they'll be happening!

On the twelth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me....


Twelve Whisking Potions...
Eleven Christmas Foils...
Ten Red Stilettos...
Nine Dressy Hats...
Eight Rapiers...
Seven Black Bandanas...
Six Long Swords...
Five Scimitars...
Four Christmas Suits...
Three Cookie Cutters...
Two Black Boots...
and a Parrot in green and red!

Details:
Each day, starting on the 8th and ending on the 19th, there will be a series of tournaments with prizes to match the song, along with an unspecified amount of poe! Some will be spread out during the day and some will be held simultaneously! Exact scheduling details will be listed on the Event calendar when they are decided upon!

Tournaments will be an equal number of Swordfighting and Drinking when possible and more drinking than swordfighting when we have an odd number of tournaments. So the final parrot prize will be a drinking one!

Note: [size=10]Exact times are still being decided upon and scheduled. They will be posted directly to the Event Calendar when they are finalized! Tournaments will vary in layout, so some will be spread out through the day and some will occur all at the same time!

Ratso. And there was me thinking that you were going to model them on the Looterati Haaats and make them nasty colours! :)

Although I'm thrilled that there is another Drinking Familiar tourney, I wish I could choose what color it was atleast. I don't get how in most Familiar SFing Ttournies people can choose their familiar's color. Yet in Drinking Familiar Tournies, it's chosen for them.

Sigh, I never liked green =/

To clarify, the christmas parrot will be the final day's prize, not the first? So it's the 12 days in reverse? And there'll be 12 tournaments, 6 drinks, 6 swords, on the 8th, with a whisking potion and some poe as the prize for each. I have that all right?

Sigh, I just wish that maybe one day Drinking Familiar Champions could decide what color his or her familiar is.

If one cannot have that, can one atleast choose from an assortment of Christmasy Colors? Maroon, Lime, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow??? =/

Oh, I'd love a green and red parrot. But if given the choices of white, red and green, might pick green and white instead.

I think we'll give out a nice green octo next... maybe followed by a lime octo and a green/green or green/lime parrot? So many shades of green, so little time... *sigh*

First thing tomorrow morning. The first few will not have set times due to the number of tournaments we'll be having over the course of the day.

This will be one of those you can win more than once things, right? I would hate to be out of the running for some of the big prizes because I'd won a whisking potion one. Will there be restrictions on winning first place more than once a day though? I could live with that.

Forgive me if I'm blind, but do you have more details on the drinking event? i.e. whether it's best 2 of 3? I'd just like to know, for times sake :p
