Haven't seen a thread dedicated to handing out Surprise Packages, Second Chances, Gifts of Jewels, Gifts of Big Bags of Dead Rodents, and "Gifts" of Big Boxes of Live Rodents. If I'm completely mistaken and such a thread already exists and has just slunk to the second page or something, tell me and I'll get rid of this thread and'll resurrect that one. I'm also aware that Surprise Packages are usually given away through the Mibbit IRC chat, but firstly there's plenty of forum users that don't use the Mibbit IRC chat, and secondly I'm banned from it so that's not viable for me.


Rules are simple, if you roll the Give a Gift! A commotion in the Square of Lofty Words card, and have no one you presently feel like sending it to, announce it below and also inform us of what it is you're willing to gift, the first claimant gets the spoils. Of course, the gift-giver gets the last say in the matter, so nobody is forced to give gifts to someone they despise or feel don't deserve it. And for God's sake, try to keep it polite and don't send anyone rats (the live kind).

Seeing as this thread was inspired by me just now getting the card, I'll go first.

Willing to send anything, including Second Chances, just give the say-so and it's yours.

Alright, sent. Sorry, had just gone off to bed when you asked for it, so there was a delay of sorts.

Not sure about the other gifts, but there is a thread dedicated for exchanging Surprise Packages, though not stickied.

No problem smile

I sent you dead rats, as I wasn't sure whether you wanted them live or dead (and didn't want to risk injuring you unwillingly). If you do want live rats, I can always send you some the next time I draw the card, though smile



I think one would mention them being live if it was necessary for them to be as such. Otherwise, I assumed that all of us would attend to the Radmas tradition of Ratsending. I was right.

Thank you kindly! Would you like a gift as well the next time I draw the card?

No one else seems to want it, so I'll take more of your delicious rats.

I believe A Game Of Chance has roughly the same purpose as this thread? In any rate, posting there will net you a surprise package from me at some point or other : )

I found A Game of Chance similar, but not identical. The system there is somewhat random in that a balanced exchange is not easy to achieve (though annalibertas certainly lives up to her word!).
There is a third thread for people who want to commit to a longer term exchange with just one other player. I have engaged in that twice in the past and found it works well.

Looking for people willing to trade (their) second chances for (my) surprise packages with my alt NULLIFIED. If you tell me who to send them to, I'll be more than willing to go first, too.

I will accept all social actions that do not consume free evenings- and i will provide patronage to anyone who requests it, though it will be split between all requesters.
On psudeo-hiatus. Will be inactive and active and fluctuate without warning.

it's not. payback is expected, but there's no schedule for when, so to speak. Got it, though- I'll send any future requests to that account, thanks!
