ATHQ is proud to announce our FFXI X-Mas event! We will be organizing a secret santa gift exchange for those that wish to participate. If you want to be included, simply reply in this topic and your name will be put on the list. ATHQ Staff will then randomly draw names to determine who you will need to purchase a present for. I would like to be able to let everyone know whose name they got by this saturday so make haste in your reply. I'll leave it open to discussion as to how much gil should be spent.

Thanks to Crush for suggesting this. at-emote1.gif

Update!

Names have been drawn.


Those who signed up will shortly recieve an in game mail telling them whose name they got. You will have until the 23rd to purchase and send the present to your person's Mog House.

Feel free to post your wishlists here. beigebiggrin.gif

This seems to be quite the trend. I've heard of other linkshells doing this exact same thing. It's really a great idea. Hopefully no one will give anyone a piece of coal (if that's even an item) as their gift.

So yeah, count me in. *crosses fingers he doesn't get coal*

what's the ideal cost for the gift? in the "real world" secret santas usually have a $5-15 cap on them so people know what to blow on a coworker. but what about on vanadiel? i, for example, am flat broke and can't contribute all that much to a decent gift.
Synthesis
Its a good idea and I'd like to be a part of it. Chibi....if you don't have much gil to spare....you could be my meatshield in exchange beigelaugh.gif j/k There's always those quests for items/gils to do or else I can help you hunt gobs for items to sell chibi.

I do think that we should have a gil cap...example: 1000-5000 gil.
Layrinn
Count me in! =D

Synth, I think 1000 - 5000 might be a little steep. ^^; Remember, we still have some newer players... and even some of the "vets" might feel that's a bit of a stretch. A suggested spending range is a good idea... but in the end, it's the thought that counts, right? ^.~
Madgeiser
I can play along... i can probably sell a few stack of fish ang get some gil for this...

It depend on when is the event... cause free time is precious nowdays.
DarkEpyon
Question: how do you plan to distribute the gifts? Just leave one person in charge of that?
Crushinator
I'm in, too.

As far as passing out the gifts goes, you can give your present at the Meeting/Photoshoot session, since most people will probably be in attendance. If someone can't make it, you can just send it to their Mog House after the event.

This is a great idea - Count me in, too!
Dive
Just a note. if you want to be included in this event, you must reply in this topic.

The pending deadline for this is saturday night before the Linkshell photoshoot.

Count me in for this. beigesmile.gif
Sieranis
Well seeing as I have no other use for the gil I've been making, count me in. I think the limit should be from 1000-5000 gil, well at least I'm prepared to spend that much.
drunken_chibi
heh.. i'm wicked broke, but i'm in anyway beigelaugh.gif
Bryn
I'm in too.

I hope to God no one asks for Leaping Boots.

I had thought about this idea for awhile, myself. Problem is....I have so many damn linkpearls now that it would pretty much kill my wallet to go through with it on all counts.

I'll craft something for someone if they need it, I guess. Maybe some OJ for those MP starved mages....


Bantam13
--I want Leaping Boots. =X
drunken_chibi
mmmm juice....
Kari
I'd love to participate in this secret santa... dealie.

I like flowers, but my delivery box was already swamped with them, so no more flowers, because I have an obligation to keep them =x I've never sold one! In fact... I never sell any presents =o but that's just me.

Anyway, I'll probably be getting everyone something small for this Christmas, but I'll enjoy getting whoever's name assigned to me something special =)

Oh, and do I constitute as a new player? =x I should certainly hope not. *throws level 20 Merria plushie at you*

ah dang i guess I missed it, I wanted to do this too.

oh well bash.gif
Madgeiser
I don't believe i got a email anywhere for it... not on my pol account, and definately not on my email account that i registered here.
Dive
They have not been sent yet Madgeiser, they will be sent out very soon,
Dive
ok mail has been sent out to your @pol accounts, or to your address you signed up at ATHQ with.

If you didn't get one, let me know asap.
Kari
I want something colorful *blush* I'm really tired of grey and brown.. and uhm.. if not that, maybe some boots..? I need some good white mage boots..
Madgeiser
How do we know what to buy for the person whom we are tasked to purchase a gift for? I know i am having a hell of a headache figuring what they want... can we just send them an email and ask them what they like? Or is this suppose to be a secret, so they do not know till the gift is being delivered? Hmm...... bash.gif
DarkEpyon
If all else fails, just give 'em gil and let them buy what they want.
drunken_chibi
i know what to get my person.. only thing is i can't afford any of it.. i'm going to have to be creative and get something cheaper instead.
Kari
I like the gil idea, some people are just so hard to buy for =)
Madgeiser
Okay i have sent out the gift for the special someone whom i am being tasked to get a gift for! Well.... i just hope he likes it! beigelaugh.gif
drunken_chibi
so when do we get to post what we got and from whom? my gift was great. i will put the items to good use.
Crushinator
I got a great present of yummy foodstuffs! Now I can finally make some burritos with these excellent tortillas beigebiggrin.gif
Bryn
My santa brought me jewelry. beigesmile.gif

Thanks Santa! A girl can never have too much sparkle. ^ ^

Cool Sig Bryn. Did you make it yourself? I recently made a plain sig that looks kind of cool and I was going to use it (still am for a while), but you reinspired me to work on a FF11 sig once I decide on my characters' look and get him made. Its too bad I couldn't get on a few days earlier, I just missed the event. I'm planning on hopefully starting this weekend.
