 |  Good news everyone!                                         |

 |  The popular Wheel-Of-Fun lottery is back. And not only is   |
 |  it back, it's also more fun than ever.                      |
 |                                                              |
 |  The Wheel-Of-Fun will be present from December 16, 00:00:01 |
 |  GT (Game Time) to January 2, 23:59:59 GT. The Wheel-Of-Fun  |
 |  will be located inside the magnificent yule tree just north |
 |  of the Tower of Realms in Sparkle. You get to spin the      |
 |  wheel once each day (it resets at midnight GT) and you can  |
 |  win lots of nice prizes. And it's all completely free       |
 |  thanks to the generous GoG (Gnomes of Genesis) Banking      |
 |  Services.                                                   |
 |                                                              |
 |  Now, due to the popularity of the Wheel-Of-Fun it has       |
 |  become too much for the GoG to handle on their own. For     |
 |  this year, Julio asked the AoE team for assistance, and     |
 |  we're of course happy to help out. So... since the lottery  |
 |  is now offically run by the AoE team it of course means we  |
 |  need to make an event out of it! Or, a mini event at least. |
 |                                                              |
 |.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*.|
 |                                                              |
 |                          The Event                           |
 |                                                              |
 |.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*.|
 |                                                              |
 |  The Wheel-Of-Fun event is not as big as regular events,     |
 |  but it adds some fun to the spinning, and another reason    |
 |  to return to spin every day. It works like this:            |
 |                                                              |
 |  Apart from winning a nice item each time you spin, you      |
 |  also get awarded points.                                    |
 |                                                              |
 |  0 points for fun prizes, like candy, clothes, etc.          |
 |                                                              |
 |  1 point for nice prizes, for example an ancient mithril     |
 |  chainmail or great black skull, and similar.                |
 |                                                              |
 |  2 points for really awesome prizes like a gigantic          |
 |  steel broadsword or a midnight black platemail.             |
 |                                                              |
 |  Whoever collects the most total points during the event     |
 |  will be declared the luckiest soul in Genesis. Since it's   |
 |  a mini event based purely on luck there will be no          |
 |  experience rewards, but the winner gets a nice title        |
 |  that will last for a year and a special lucky coin that     |
 |  they get to keep for 30 days. What it does? It provides     |
 |  luck of course!                                             |
 |                                                              |
 |  To know the score, simply ask Julio.                        |

 |                                                              |
 |  A bunch of really cool equipment found in some of Genesis   |
 |  newer areas.                                                |
 |                                                              |

 |                                                              |
 |  The flaming black broadsword has been (temporarily) removed |
 |  from the lottery due to the new way equipment currently is  |
 |  saved in Genesis                                            |
 |                                                              |

 |                                                              |
 |  There is a decreased chance of winning some non-dulling     |
 |  weapons for the same reason as above. This is most likely   |
 |  a temporary change for this year only as well.              |
 |                                                              |
 |  Coin pouches have been converted to gift boxes with money.  |
 |                                                              |

I am posting what I just posted on the general board here as well:

Code: Select all

 \ \/_____-__________.______|\___________________________________/
  )                                                             |
 (                                                              |
 |  Greetings,                                                  |
 |                                                              |
 |  As some of you probably noticed Armageddon struck just      |
 |  before Christmas Eve, and as he had not been instructed     |
 |  on what to do with the yule tree in Sparkle he simply       |
 |  took it. After six hours of negotiation Arman managed to    |
 |  convince Armageddon to return it. However, poor Julio       |
 |  was completely exhausted and disorganized after his visit   |
 |  to Armageddon and did not get things sorted out until       |
 |  the day after (December 25).                                |
 |                                                              |
 |  So, as compensation for the lost day I have extended the    |
 |  Yuletide event to 23:59:59 on January 3.                    |
 |                                                              |
 |  Also, a clarification is needed when it comes to the        |
 |  competition: In the case of a TIE for first place the       |
 |  winner will be decided by a dice roll. It's an event        |
 |  purely based on luck after all!                             |
 |                                                              |
 |  Kind regards and happy yuletide,                            |
