[EVENT] Eve Uni Secret Santa 2018 [ended]

This event has ended 23rd of December!





Prepare yourselfs for the Eve Uni Secret Santa 2018!


Step 0: How to sign up - writing your letter to Santa
SPOILER WARNING!
To take part in the E Uni Secret Santa 2018 you will need to send a Evemail to "Santa Kingswell". This letter needs to include:
- your E UNI Character name
- any campus(es) you are active in
- a quick sumup of the activities you partake in Eve and in the Uni
- (maybe) a hint that enables your secret santa to get the right gift for you

For a example letter check the FAQ below.


Step 1: Get assigned as one of Santa Kingswells Elves
SPOILER WARNING!
Once you have signed up you need to wait until the signing up period is over (check post #2 in this topic).
You will recieve a Evemail from Santa Kingswell which will tell you:
- the name of the person you give a gift to (DONT TELL THEM YOUR THEIR ELF - ITS SECRET!)
- some of their activities
- possibly a hint what to gift them[
- IF YOU ARE ALPHA TELL SANTA SO YOUR ELF KNOWS!


Step 2: Prep your gift
SPOILER WARNING!
Now you know who your giftee is! It's time to get a suitable gift for them and wrap it up nicely!
There is NO LIMIT on the ISK value you can put into this gift!
But be warned: Just because you spent 100mil on your gift doesn't mean you shall recieve an expensive gift aswell! (might only be coal!)

Send an Evemail to "Santa Kingswell" stating your name, the name of your giftee and the gift (see FAQ for example)


Step 3: Hand out/over your gift
SPOILER WARNING!
There are 2 ways to go about this:

Option 1: Handing out the gift yourself
You feel uncomfortable with Santa handling your gift? No problem:
- Send a Evemail to Santa Kingswell and let him know you are plaing on handing out your gift personally
- Creat yourself an alt (example name: "Santas Elf #1347")
- Contract/Deliver your gift to your giftee in the GIFT HANDOUT PHASE (see post #2 of this topic) around christmas time FROM YOUR SECRET ALT IN A TRADEHUB or a "SAFE" Station like HSC Citadel 101
(- you may also send them a christmasy Evemail with a limmerick or something)
- Send a Evemail to Santa Kingswell from your MAIN and confirm that you handed the gift out yourself!

Option 2: Using Santa Kingswell

- You can contract your gift to "Santa Kingswell" and he will take care of handing it out.

SEE FAQ for "What option to use?"



Step 4: Recieve your gift
SPOILER WARNING!
- You will recieve your Secret Santa 2018 gift either by Santa Kingswell or one of his elves.
- You may recieve a christmasy Evemail about it aswell


Step 5: Merry Christmas
SPOILER WARNING!
Enjoy your gift and sing the official E Uni approved Christmas Carol!






Only official Eve Uni approved Christmas Carol:
SPOILER WARNING!
I just came back from a lovely trip to Verge Vendor
Stopped off at the Citadel to dock in splendor
I called on dear Santa Kingswell
To see what I could see
He took me to his workshop
And told his plans to me, so

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not gank me, I'm telling you why
Santa Kingswell is comin' into dock
He's making an excel-list and checking it twice (more like 9 times!)
Gonna find out who's naughty and nice
Santa Kingswell is comin' into dock

He PVEs you when you're sleepin'
He PVPs when you're a wake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Oh! You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not gank, I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is comin' into dock
With little blaster ones and little rail guns
Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums
Santa Kingswell is comin' into Dock
And ships and skins for you
faction modules too

Santa Kingswell is comin' into dock
Then Capsuleers in High and Low will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a new ships all around the Christmas tree
So! You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not gank, I'm telling you why
Santa Kingswell is comin' into dock

Now Santa is a busy man, He has no time to play
He's got hundrets of contracts to fill all before Christmas day
You'd better write your eve mail now
And mail it right away
Because he's getting ready
his hauleralts and his Tay(ra). So


You better watch out, you better not cry

Re: [EVENT] Eve Uni Secret Santa 2018

F.A.Q.:

Example for a letter to Santa:
SPOILER WARNING!
Dear Santa Kingswell,
my name is Mike Kingswell and I am 209 Eve-days old. As a member of the HSC I like to explore in NULL, do some PvE (combat sites and missions) mining and a bit of industry.
I really enjoy flying exploration ships and finding new stuff in the Eve-verse!
Have a good wintery time!

Love you,
Mike Kingswell

PS: I left milk and cookies out!


Example for Gift-Prepping-Mail:
SPOILER WARNING!
Dear Santa Kingswell,
my name is Mike Kingswell. I have been assigned as Turtle's secret santa.
My gift for him will be:
-10L of "shiney turtle shell cleaning suplies"
-1 large bag of new memes
-1 fully fitted t1 punisher

Have a great time!
kind regards
Mike Kingswell


What gift-giving option to use?
SPOILER WARNING!
Well thats up to you.
On the one hand Santa is a lazy man and if you hand it over yourself that takes a load of work from his back. On the other hand you have to be reliable and honorable about it. You don't want to be the person who forgets to hand over the gift to their giftee so you might want to use Santas service of doing that for you.
Personally I don't care how you do it as long as you keep Santa informaed about it!


Where should I set up the contract?
SPOILER WARNING!
Preferably a "safe place" like Uni HQ in Slays, HSC Citadel 101 or something the like. Also a Tradehub is accessable and possible.
Ask yourself: "Could I get this stuff out of there to where I want to be?" If the answer is YES then go for it!


What if I am not happy with my gift?
SPOILER WARNING!
Santa is sorry if your gift doesn't satisfy your expectations. In case of "just the wrong gift" Santa can't do anything about it. If Santa sees gifts that are maybe a bit "underwelming" he WILL add some small specials to them all by himselve!


What if someone forgets to hand over their gift?
SPOILER WARNING!
Santa will remind you about your gift-giving! Sometimes people are forgetfull though and everyone of use knows that: The world doesn't end if you are late by a day or so. If a higher power stops you from giftgiving please let Santa know and he will take care of it!
If someone should intentionally "forget" their gift they will incur Santas wrath and will be added to the naughty list with followup reprecussions.


I have not gotten a gift!
SPOILER WARNING!
Give your secret santa a few more days.
If it is the 26th Dec. and you have NOT gotten your gift let Santa Kingswell (or Mike Kingswell) know and we will follow up on it!


Not really FAQ:

Is "Santa Kingswell a thing?
SPOILER WARNING!
He is real if you belive hard enough in him - Look him up ingame.


Officially approved carol? How? Who?
SPOILER WARNING!
Approved by Mike Kingswell - Teaching dept.


Followup: can you do that?
SPOILER WARNING!
I can. Until the higher ups notice. For real officialy sanctioned by Titus!

Re: [EVENT] Eve Uni Secret Santa 2018

So if you translate the carol into German, do the syllables follow the tune better?

"Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius."

"Ha ha ha, you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is 'Never get involved in a land war in Asia,' but only slightly less well-known is this: 'Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!'"

Current industry initiatives:

Beginner Exploration contracts available in 101

Gallente Starter Packs available in 101

Caldari Starter Packs available in 101

I'm also on the "Pretty Good Refine List"!
