Hey everyone, it's the start of the month and that means Christmas is coming soon! So it's time for a preview and the details regarding the Christmas Event and its patch. This event is scheduled to start on December 12th 12:00 am PDT and ends on January 5th 12:00 am PDT. It's possible it may start a week later and end a week later, but I think we'll have it out on time. Below you can find details/small previews of the event!

Christmas Gifts/Gifting System!
-Christmas Gifts are simply a gift box you open to get something nice. We've added our own custom version that gives a lot nicer stuff. So these should be rather desirable, I mean they can even give some costumes. So I bet you're wondering how you can obtain these, huh? Well there's a few ways. The first way is to obtain them from the Charity Events(details below). The second way is to get them from GM Events, like a Gift Shower. Last but not least is to get them randomly gifted to you from another player. That's where the Gifting System comes in.

When hunting during the Christmas Event in Lutie Field, and Toy Factory, you can get Gift Vouchers. You can use these vouchers at Santa's Helper in Lutie. A picture of him is posted below. When you give him these gift vouchers, a random player will get a gift per voucher that you use! This is chance based. The cool part is that you can raise your chance to get a gift by simply giving gifts! The more gift vouchers you use to give gifts to random players, the higher your chance will be at receiving a gift when another player does the same. So if you want a lot of gifts, be sure to give a lot of gifts!

Notes: The gift npc may take a minute to give your gifts out, it doesn't freeze. It takes a minute for it to go through everyone to give them their gifts. It additionally only allows you to do it in sets of 5 to avoid putting to much stress on the server.

Christmas Charity/Automated Events!
-At the Christmas Charity npc(pictured below in the market) you can donate zeny. All players on the server can donate zeny into a single pool, and depending how much zeny has been donated within a certain time frame, there will be an automated event in Lutie. These events get bigger and bigger depending on the amount of zeny donated. So the more zeny everyone donates, the bigger and more grand the event will be. After an event has happened the amount will reset to zero and players can donate to a new pool. If there wasn't enough zeny donated, no event will run and the zeny will NOT reset. It will count towards the next pool. So in summary, donate zeny and get cool events in return! The rewards you can get range from gifts, supplies, quest items, and even costumes themselves!

Christmas Market
-Prism has designed a custom Christmas Market that will be around for the duration of the Christmas Event! See it below.

Disguised NPCs
-Some of the market npcs will have their appearance changed for the duration of the Christmas Event. The monsters also have a different appearance during Christmas as well. Just to add a little more of that Holiday feel.

Christmas Snow
-It's winter time during Christmas of course and that means snow. All of the towns and the market, will have snowy weather enabled on them.

Different Various Market BGM
-The market will have Holiday Themed Music for the duration of the event. It has a default christmas song that will play when you enter the map, if you're in it for a long enough time it will change. There are 6 different holiday bgms it randomly picks from.

Limited Availability Cosmetic Headgear Costumes!
-We've added 13 Headgear Costumes! These headgears are COSMETIC ONLY and go in the costumes slot, so you can still get the stats from your headgear but have the visual of the Headgear Costume. You will only be able to obtain these during the Christmas Event. Once the Christmas Event ends you cannot obtain these anymore! All of these can be made at Santa Claus in Lutie! They require various things to obtain so be sure to talk to him to see what you need. Check them out below.

Smithing Update Part 2!
-The 2nd part of the Smithing update will be released with the Christmas Event or on the 19th of December if we feel we need a little more time. Some of these items are pretty cool too, but you'll have to wait until we release them to see what exactly they do! There are a total of 17 new weapons you can smith. This is subject to change upon release, but that's what we currently have. Honestly I'm looking forward to this more then the Christmas Event itself =P.

Summary
So all in all we added 12 cosmetic headgear costumes, 2 new normal headgears, and a Santa Suit. That's a total of 15 items, and that's not including the Smithing Update! That would be another 17! To top it all off and give the server the Holiday feel we added a bunch of Holiday themed stuff to the towns. We hope you look forward to the Christmas Event! As a final remind the event runs from December 12th 12:00 am PDT and ends on January 5th 12:00 am PDT.

The Santa Claus inside one of the buildings in Lutie does not even show us the quest for the headgear costumes. What a way to kill my excitement. Yeah, I know there could be some bugs and stuffs and the event is just starting. But still... :cry:
