[quote]BONUS: THE GREAT RATMAS CHRISTMAS CHEER ENDEAVOUR
It’s possible to send Christmas cards to anyone you want, wherever they happen to be, regardless of whether or not you’re acquainted. This Ratmas, I feel we should send some holiday cheer to a poor, neglected, forgotten soul, whose name is often misremembered, who bears the weight of many menaces, day-by-day. I am, of course, talking about none other than Mr Eaten. Send the poor fella your Christmas cards. The thought’s what counts. If you don’t have any cards, that’s okay! It doesn’t have to be today. As long as you don’t postpone it indefinitely, everything’s fine. [/quote]
So Spacemarine9 posted this in his Ratmas Thread, but I thought it was such a good idea it deserved its own.
You see, Christmas is a time to be a decent folk to all those in need. And I know there are a lot of you who does not want to get involved with a certain search when it returns. But for those of you who know this guy’s position it must be awful. So I say even if you want nothing to do with him, think about sending a card with a little bit of Christmas cheer his way. Include a nice heartwarming message or something. Because noone needs Christmas cheer more than someone who’s had all kinds of horrible things happen to them.
Why not a few rats for the poor soul? I’m sure he’s hungry!
So, I just type “Mr Eaten” into my Contacts bar, and I can send cards to him? And does that apply to other Masters? Or even a certain tiger? (He can block our rats, but our cards?)
Christmas cards are automatically accepted but pretty much every other social action needs confirmation from the recipient. I don’t think there’s ever been a record of Mr Eaten accepting an action; the closest is the one time he declined a calling card and sent his own.
Anything that raises watchful cannot do so above 200. Something that sets watchful to a value, such as overlevelling through notability as a tier 2 PoSI, works fine. So they just set his watchful to 999 directly and not through a normal method in the game.
