Postby N00b13 » Tue Nov 22, 2016 4:46 am

Oh Come all ye booters, Squirl and duck and lion
Come get you loot here and brag to everyone.

It's that time again, Time for the Annual FTB Secret Santa!

First I'd like to thank All the previous hosts of FTB Secret Santas.

2011:THAC0
2012:Maniah
2013:the werefrog

But with just a little more ado, in the words of the one who got this thing rolling,
goatunit wrote:$10.00 limit.

Who's in?



How it works, We're getting a bit of a late start this year so you had till December 9th. Now everyone has been assigned a forum member to give a thoughtful, awesome, or just hilarious gift to. Said person sends their gift to arrive before the 25th of December. Then off to the brag thread to talk about said thoughtful, awesome, or just hilarious gifts. But above all else have fun.

Now just a few rules.
[*]Minimum $10. This is the gift, not with shipping.
[*]Register with me by PM and post on this page before 11:59:59 pm December 9th.
[*]Rando-o-matic will spit out the names on December 10 and everyone will have their pairings by Dinnertime.
[*]Ship early. You have little time to ship this year so December 15th or sooner if you can swing it.
[*]Keep you tracking number/shipping receipts. It'll be bad if the gift get's lost, it'll be worse if you get called out for not shipping it after you did.
[*]If you don't give a gift (or it get's lost and you don't have your receipt. Hint. Hint) you will be on the naughty list for 2017 and will be banned from the Secret Santa as the horrid person you are. This really isn't too necessary as we are a close family here, right?
[*]Have fun!
[*]The first person to point out a spelling error on this post is getting coal.

If you wish to participate in this PM me, Lucek, the following By December 9th!

1:Your forum Handel(yous name on here)
2:Your Real name(Like IRL. Postmen go by that.)
3:Full and accurate shipping address(if you don't it's on you when your gift takes the wrong turn at Albuquerque)
4:Phone number(Shipping and all ya know)
5:Willing to ship to US/Canada(not too expensive)
6:Willing to ship internationally.
7:Is there anyone you'd not like to be paired with(Were you pared with them last year for example?)
8:3 random words
9:Your favorite color
10:T-shirt size
11:If you have any amazon/steam/etc. . . wishlist(no guarantee especially if all you have on there is expansive.)
12:Anything someone shouldn't get you.(allergic to etc.)

werefrog wrote:Here's a Q/A based on previous years
Q: Why did you pair me with the person I see every day?
A: Don't assume that I know who is friends with who. trust me, I don't follow your lives that closely.

Q: Can I spend more or less than $10?
A: Yes, spend as much or as little as you want, it's the thought that counts. If your gift was bought in the spirit of Christmas it will likely be received as such. I will suggest that if you go over $10 that you keep it modest.

Q: Can I give a handmade gift.
A: YES!!! These are the best kind of gift. IMO.

Q: Does it have to be RPG or game related?
A: No, but it does need to be something you'd believe the recipient would enjoy.

Q: What about shipping costs? Canada to USA and vice/versa...overseas.
A: Budget for shipping - and consider size and weight of gift and shipping costs. Generally, shipping between Canada and the US is not a big deal.
Metal miniatures have been shipped to the UK for less than $5.
If you do not want to ship outside your country note it on your name submission.


Here's a list of the participants this year,

PM sent. Also:

Are we planning to break the space-time continuum for people who don't send gifts? That seems a tad bit harsh.

My secret santa gift might be a little late as I don't get paid until the 15th.
