The Winter Month has finally arrived, marking the end of a year full of efforts. Winter is the Festival Season, and the URPG has planned it's own activities... The Raffle, The URPG Christmas Tree (details later), the Winter Story Writting Competition, and...

Secret Santas!
In this activity you will become a Santa and give a present to one Friend. But your friend won't know who is his Secret Santa until the very present day! Follow this steps for joining the fun!
1.- Register yourself to become a Secret Santa in this thread, and I'll add you to the list. When you register, you must have at least $5,000, and you will not be allowed to have less than $5,000 until you buy your present. You can register until (and including) December 8th.
2.- You will recieve a PM from me containing your Secret Friend. Needless to say, keep your Secret Friend a secret, remember, Bob Dole is watching.
3.- Take a look at your Secret Friend's stats. Try to guess what they would like based on what you see on the forum... it can be that vital TM for that signature pokémon, or a baby pokémon from the mart to complete that fire-type collection... it's up to you, but the gift must be from $5,000 to $10,000 of value. Don't ask your Secret Friend about his/her present, makes it more fun.
This time, you may buy a number of berries equaling from $5,000 to $10,000. However, do this ONLY if your Secret Friend is participating in coordination
4.- Send me a PM with your present, and substract the cost from your stats. Do NOT post your present on the Pokémart. You have 2 weeks for doing this, until December 21th (My birthday!)
5.- On December 22th, I will post a thread with all the Secret Friends, the presents and their respective Secret Santas. Cheers!

Feliz Navidad a todos, y un próspero Ańo Nuevo.

It's Bob Dole, not Bod Dole :-P.

Man, you seem so ... strict, even writing about Secret Santa XD.

I'm in at any rate ^_~.

Quick Question: Is there any way that we can capture a story 'mon and give that to our Secret Santa person? That would make it interesting, and it is for Christmas ^^.

Wheter you have more than 1 pokémon or not does not matter. What matters is if you have 5k or more, which you can only obtain by battling other members.

It's a giveaway of gifts... from oneself to another; with no secrets at all, and no restriction on the gift. But, there will be a restriction on the number of gifts you can give. It'll be up in a week or so, I guess.

Really I thought it was that the 5k was the minimum you had to have to participate and the max you could use is 10k.

Since when do you have any kind of authority over me, Lan? Just wondering.
The tree is going to be up the 22nd and the 23d.

Marth, you should probably create the thread a day or two early, locked, so everyone can see it and think what to give and such. Then open it on those days.

12-22-2006, 09:09 PM
LoL, no, it wasn't due to the lack of originality, au contraire, it was odd that such a pokémon was given twice so close in the post. I think we had 2 beldums too, 3 if I hadn't suggested another one.

Ryouseiken
12-22-2006, 09:40 PM
! I got an Eevee! Thanks Fenix! :biggrin: *thinks of all the choices and possibilities* >D

And your welcome Ridley, XD I honestly didn't know what to get you, and I saw those two 'punch' attacks that Gengar has, I was like heck, why not give him one more. :hungry:

i just noticed that Secret Santa's Gift were given... THANKS HiF! I really wanted a fire type guy...

Now if i finish that hell of my on-going story(it's been like half year and i still haven't finished it :rolleyes: ) maybe i'llget another... but that's all off topic

About my gift... I didn't know what to give him, a pokemon would have been a better choice but i couldn't decide, so I gave him a Substitute tm, it's always useful

Galleon
12-24-2006, 10:27 AM

And you're certainly welcome, Megumi. :cool:
