With the Starlight Celebration right around the corner at this point, the Wayfarer's Rest is opening up its doors to have its second Secret Gift Exchange! We are opening sign ups for our Winter Exchange event on November 19th, and they will remain open till November 30th! When signing up for this event, you are required to send @FreeJayFly a list of three items that you can get in-game.
These items can vary in needed crafting material or Market Board price, but they must be obtainable and tradeable in some fashion. When writing up your list, we ask that you do what you can to not make all of your items unreasonably priced (i.e. putting all items on the list that cost over a million gil each). You can put one item up that is one of those "god, I would really love to have that, but it's super expensive for me to get" on there, and hope for the best, but remember that item is not guaranteed by the person that will end up being your gifter. We recommend putting two affordable items on your wishlist, and one expensive one just in case the gifter cannot fulfil certain items due to their own reserves of money or crafting items!
On December 1st, all participants will be given a random person and their created wishlist to fulfil by January 2nd. You do not have to get everything on the list that is given to you, but you do have to get at least one of the requested items. By signing up, you agree that you will have your character participate in this event in some fashion -- the very minimum of participation being that all you do is give your recipient their gift(s) via Moogle Delivery, or trading them directly. Failure to meet the criteria by the end date will unfortunately mean denial into future events similar to this one.
If items on your recipient's list need to be crafted, please know that you can go to @FreeJayFly and ask for assistance in getting it crafted; all masterwork books have been obtained and all things should be craftable on their end. This ensures that your gift remains secret between you and the event organiser. If your gift needs some farming, please let Jay know to organise something before the RP event begins.
On January 3rd, we will be having an in-character session starting at 2PM CST at the Rest where characters can exchange their gifts with one another, and comment or converse on it if you simply want to partake in it for fun, further character growth and development, and / or as a means for creating better connections.
