Thanks to everyone who attended! Lots of Kaldorei spider kebabs and traditional Nelfsmas sausage was eaten. Steamy romances were read. Songs were sung. Poems were improvised and many hats were exchanged.
This is an attempt to generate some RP interactions in the Night Elf community while having a bit of fun...
THE GREAT WINTER VEIL GIFT EXCHANGE
Once a year, Night Elves engage in a flurry of gift-giving that exists outside the traditional bounds of reciprocity. Gifts are sent anonymously, so as to avoid generating a sense of obligation between gift-receiver and gift-giver. This allows for elves to give and receive help from their brothers and sisters without damaging their pride.
From now until 10 December, I will be keeping this thread open for sign-ups for the gift exchange. On the 11th, participants will be mailed in-game with a randomly chosen name from the list and it is to this person that they will send gifts. Toward the end of Winter Veil, we will also have a big party event at which gift-givers will reveal themselves.
Do I need to be a Nelf to participate?
Yes. This is part of an attempt to generate some Nelf RP connections. Now, you don't need to be using the Nelf as your main, so you can always make a little Nelf alt just for this. In fact, it would be good if people didn't know you because then you could send your presents in a truly anonymous way.
How much do I need to spend on gifts and how often do I send them?
This isn't as much about the gifts as it is about making contact with other Nelf RPers. A few very small things over the weeks of the event should be fine, but you should try to get the first one sent early.
How do I mail it anonymously?
If you don't have an alt you can use, then you will send the item to me with a note saying who it is going to and I will have it forwarded along.
What if I don't get a present?
If you have received nothing for the first week, contact me and I will get you assigned to someone new.

If it makes you feel better, we won't be letting those greenish Nelves in either.
82 Gnome Rogue
Do I need to be a Nelf to participate?Fine.
I will choose my own nelf to shower with gifts and slobber over in a respectful way.
Which do you prefer? As long as it is some kind of Elf involved, I'm game.
Just let me know the name you want to get your gifts at and I will add it to the list.
Ah, ok. Well in that case, if its alright with you, can I send it from my elf and receive it on Ariade?

I'd love to participate! Sounds like a wonderful way to spark up some random RP.
If you need any help with the big party at the end (random gifts-I have pretty much access to all professions across my alts, food, etc.,) please let me know.
RP with Night Elves is not the same as Night Elf RP. You could replace Night Elf with Dwarf, Human, or even Tauren in the event description and the event would remain unchanged.
Thread should be changed to 'Any race RP Secret Santa Sign-ups'. It feels weird to exclude people when Night Elf culture doesn't have any influence.
Thanks for the offer! I will probably take you up on it.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Posts containing personal information about other players. This includes physical addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and inappropriate photos and/or videos.
