OFFICIAL FREEBIRDIA 2015 SECRET SANTA!!!!!!
« on: November 05, 2015, 08:23:10 PM »
:pegasled: :pegasled: :pegasled: :pegasled:So Christmas is coming, and in the lands of Freebirdia that means one thing!

SECRET SANTA

So I'm sure you're all curious about how this will work, and I'll tell you.

For those not familiar with what Secret Santa is, it's where a bunch of people throw their names into a hat and then draw those names to find out who they're giving a gift to secretly.

How this translates to Freebirdia is that everyone signs up, and I tell everyone who they're giving the gift to, the gift is then made and sent back to me, and I then send it to the intended person/post it in the secret santa thread depending on preference of the sendee. This is to let the fun part of this happen, THE GUESSING! You get to guess who sent you your present!

Now the gifts can be anything, a picture, a song, a story, just remember to try and customize it a bit for the intended recipient if possible, for example if you're writing a story or something make it have something to do with either them, or something they like. You don't need to be a super story teller or artist or anything, just knowing you made the present for them and it's meaningful is what matters.
 (Last years present thread can be found here for your perusal. http://freebirdgames.com/forum/index.php?topic=5899.0 And remember if all else fails, make a scavenger hunt. If you really want you can buy something for someone, but it is encouraged that you make something.

All you need to do to sign up is post in this thread, THAT'S RIGHT! POST IN THIS THREAD

The only rules/limitations are you must have been a member for over 2 months from the sign-up date or you must have more than 50 non-spam posts(I am the lord of the Secret Santa and reserve the right to overrule these rules at anytime HAHAHAHAHAHAHA)

In that post, post what you would like to receive(maybe just what is a show you are into or something like that) and what kind of gift are you capable of making(be creative, whatever you can do.)

I will be leaving sign-ups open until the end of November, but please if you do sign-up be sure to submit your gift on time or your person will be left gift-less when they spent their time making someone else something, and that just isn't fair.  -cuss-

I do understand the holiday season is a busy time for everyone and to make sure everyone has as much time as possible I will be setting the Gift Deadline as midnight Mountain Time December 20th http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_Time_Zone to allow everyone that last weekend to make all their gifts perfect!

SIGN UP DEADLINE:
NOVEMBER 29th

GIFT DEADLINE:
December 20th

If you have any questions about the secret santa feel free to post in the thread or PM me.

Old River was as dead as a doornail, this must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am about to relate.

Er mer gersh. I will be the first signup!

To anyone who is assigned me as a secret santa recipient, I love anime a ton. In particular, I love magical girl stuff. If you can pixel art, please do that. If not, just do whatever comes naturally to you. I'm not picky :P

Now, to wait a month and a half to know who I'm assigned to secret santa. I will then make it my mission to anonymously BLOW THEIR MINDZ (or bring a chuckle out of them at least). And then I will watch in awe as Eli manages to figure out who each and every gift came from XD

I guess I might as well sign up!

I like anime,  but nowhere near as much as legacy         






































                                                                                                                                          blade.

Basically, I love Japan and stuff. Favorite TV shows are Futurama and How I Met Your Mother. Love music too! (Hopefully that should give whoever gets my name an idea if they don't know me well enough already  :vikonsmile:)

I wan be in!!

Those who know me know I like tanks... :P But I also love music, space and art. But really, I don't mind getting anything, like Raven below me.

I can, well, sort of draw, but it ain't no masterpiece. I can definitely make anything involving short stories and poems and stuff like that

If you are my secret santa, I fully expect you to paint a picture while playing an original piece on the piano and narrating a short story that includes a poem ;)

Hmmmm, I'll risk joining (if I can't make what you want, everybody loves stickman drawings, right?).

If you are my Secret Santa, I'd be happy about something funny or sci-fi.
Or maybe a mini game, although I assume those are lots of work.
Or a ten-minute musical improvisation based on "[Cue] Mud dash" from A Bird Story (five minutes are also okay). That song is really too short when listened to outside of the game.

Can't think of anything else right now (if I do, I may edit this post), but if your talents positively lie elsewhere, like writing great poems or singing an ode to my name, do that!

Edit: Umm, Kyo is kind of right, getting a unicorn gift wouldn't be the thing for me. Got nothing against you though, UNICORN!.

Yo, I'll join. :seraismile: Time isn't exactly on my side lately, but I'll still find the time to make something cool. :vikonsmile:

I really don't mind what I get. :) They're always nice.

I've made a game every year so far, so I'll probably stick to the theme. Might be easy to guess who sent it though! XD

Spoiler: show
