    Winter... that familiar old friend you dread but find brief nostalgia in it's fleeting moments. It smells like that mildly moldy, wet artificial, concrete, not the man made cider’s tangy pungent odor or the wafting hot chocolate like we seem to think it does. No, Winter has always had a rough hand, pneumonia racking through innocent lungs, layers upon layers lacking the warm to keep out the chill, and split ends wet and flaky, connecting themselves to your skin. It's never pleasant. But then again… encased in your house, surrounded by loved ones, the laughter of a child there, the yip of a newborn puppy, or possibly just the crackle of the fire and the twinkle of a star upon the tree. It seems as it's said, a wonderland. Only to take one step outside to grab such a simple thing as the paper, you are now bulldozed in the face with how utterly cold, forgotten, and insignificant you are the fire now seems to you,
    alone in the suffocating, sinking snow.

    Haha a little uh... *clears throat* haunting way to start a holly jolly event/holiday huh?
    Whelp… it’s been an entire year, can you believe it? It feels like just yesterday I was hosting the first of this event. I was very anxious on how it was going to turn out, even after going through the flu after day 8 and rushing just about everything when I was sick and jerry-rigging it, according to myself and players it was a hit, spectacular, fantastic, all those fun little words.

    Since many of you probably have no clue what this event is or what in the heck I am talking about, I'll explain a little bit. (Here's the link to the first year of SCOMiss's thread just for a little background context if I reference it later - http://swordart.ancientrpg.net/index.php?threads/12-days-of-scomiss.632/)

    Event Information

    12 Days of SCOMiss (On Loop) is based off the song 12 Days of Christmas, with our own little fun twist. This is the second year holding this event based on popular vote of players that were currently logged in during a 'hot-spot' (29-36 players with none apposed)
    Each day there is a new something added, which can be an item, npc/boss, discount, skin added to the shop, etc. literally anything relating server wise.
    Each item added will stay added until the event is over (at the end of the 12 days and the last 'event') to eliminate the pressure and inconvenience of time-zones. Aka come on any time, it'll be there waiting for you.
    Other than that, be kind, respectful and bare with me on this, I hope it goes swell!
    This thread will be updated (mostly) every day, so keep your eyes peeled for information and ask questions below!

    Also I am going to ask all higher-level players to sick with their level Event npcs when they are added and not grind them for hours otherwise my system for the Christmas Market will not work and it will not be implemented. You can still kill the lower-leved npcs a couple times but please do not grind them when they aren't your level or if it comes to you having to say 'theyre too easy'. Otherwise you will ruin the shop for yourself and others. Thank you.

    Warning
    Due to the fact that this year my school schedule is a week off from last years, some events might not be added until later that day or maybe in dire consequences not at all until the next day. I am deeply sorry if this happens, I hope some staff will be able to aid me in this, but Finals are up and well, sometimes, I hate to say this but, the server and you guys come at expense :(. I hate doing this and I feel the quality and joy decreases in these circumstances but it cannot be helped, we have new administration this year (at my school) and they decided to take a week of time from our winter vacation.


    Event
    (Schedule and Daily Additions)


    12 Days of SCOMiss: On Loop

    Day 1

    On the first day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    Haha I know, I am taking the on loop quite seriously but hey! I love gifts and kits and Santa is comin' to town so why wouldn't he bring presents? You can find Santa directly in front of gates, he'll be hard to miss.

    Day 2

    On the second day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    Two Holly Skin Sets

    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    To new players, skins are cosmetic armor/clothing themed snazz that you put over your player, they come in all different unique designs, they can be found in the AC Shop, near the market at gates.
    A kind player has helped me by creating these skin sets specially for this event, he has been a big help and I would like to say thank you, you know who you are ;). And since not everyone can afford to buy AC, they will be much cheaper then regular skins aka the set will not be very 'expensive' AC wise. Share with those who can't buy so much AC ya money folks XD (I have a good couple somewhere maybe ill give them away...)
    (these will be added later today, I've got an interview this morning then school!)


    Day 3

    On the third day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    3 Yelling Yetis

    Two Holly Skin Sets

    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts


    It seems the boars have been turned into... Yetis? Yetis have invaded! You will find unique drops to the Yetis at the gates, I hope their breath doesn't ruin the Holiday Feel :)

    Day 4

    On the fourth day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    4 Evil Santa's Helpers

    3 Yelling Yetis

    Two Holly Skin Sets

    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    They seemed to be oddly... green, more ogre than what they were called. When they smiled seemingly-jolly you found sharp teeth gleaming at you. Every year they terrorize the players, with pointy ears and shoes, even the local prisoners mistake them for their appearance. They're no holly jolly little helpers anymore, and it's your job to put an end to them.

    Once more I had to add elves, I've always loved the concept of evil elves for some reason so hey let's go! They will drop toys and Christmas Dust, like last year, they play a key part in whats to come so hoard that dust and don't throw it away. You can find the elves across from the prison past gates, you can't miss the giant Christmas building.

    Day 5

    On the fifth day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    5 Rabid Reindeer

    4 Evil Santa's Helpers

    3 Yelling Yetis

    Two Holly Skin Sets


    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    That's right! Two returning npcs in a row, I know last year people enjoyed the Parkour mixed with Rabid Rudolph, tomorrow I swear will be different (I hope '-'). Finals has been kicking my butt, but, I'm still trying for everyone :). You can find Rudolph and his friends down the gates from the Elves, you won't miss em'. Please do not cheat and sit in a spot where he can't get you.

    Day 6


    On the sixth day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    6 Jolly Skins

    5 Rabid Reindeer

    4 Evil Santa's Helpers

    3 Yelling Yetis

    Two Holly Skin Sets

    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    Alrighty guys, today it's a simple skin day aka more skins added to the shop, as I said I've got finals for two more days so bear with me! You can find these skins from a different seller right next to the Day 2 one :)

    Day 7

    On the seventh day of SCOMiss the Event Team gave to me,

    7 % Drop Rate Increases


    6 Jolly Skins

    5 Rabid Reindeer


    4 Evil Santa's Helpers

    3 Yelling Yetis

    Two Holly Skin Sets

    And One Santa Claus bearing gifts

    That's right everyone, all the npcs I have added so far have increased in Drop Rate. I remind you to please stick with your level, higher level npcs will be added for those who are over level and on steroids (you know who you are).

    will the higher-leveled npcs have better drop rates or will a lvl 200 npc have the same drop rate as a lvl 30 npc?

    The higher levels will have the same the first day and the drop rate will increase by a percent % for an unnamed amount of days.

    Hehe thanks, even thought I'm not sure you saw everything I did in the past, and my current projects...
    If only I could bring back my skins and if only I could freely work on new skins on the SCO server...

    uhmmmm, Happy late Xmas and happy new year I guess. Funny to see the community is still alive, somehow.
