'Tis the season for a Holiday Gift Eskchange!
ThoseWhoWentMissing is hosting a surprise gift swap!
This gift-giving activity will follow the basic rules of a "secret santa." We will have a sign-up window open for the rest of the month of November, then staff will randomly assign a gift recipient to each player. You will be required to make a piece of artwork or writing for your gift recipient before the deadline. Don't share information about your gift recipient — it should be a surprise!
Sign-ups are closed, notes are sent!
Please have your Eskchange gifts uploaded by January 7th!
You must own an Esk character to participate — in order to keep this activity TWWM-related all participants must own Esk characters.
Artwork must be in color — headshots are acceptable, but remember that the nature feature must be visible in the headshot.
Writing must be over 100 words — short form poetry can be bundled until it reaches 100 words.
Gift must feature the recipient's Esk — if you want to include multiple Esk that is your choice, but make sure the recipient's character is the main focus!
There is no theme requirement for submissions — they do not need to be related to winter or holidays, just have fun!
Your gift art or writing will receive double points!
We have decided to make this event an even more rewarding experience by allowing players to score double AP and GP points for the piece that they create for their gift recipient.
Doubling includes additional points and bonuses — Players calculate the score of their piece like they normally would and just multiply the final score by two.
Reminder — AP only goes to the person who made the gift, not the recipient and the GP will double only for the esk that belong to the gift recipient. If you include your own esk or other esk in the art/writing they will just get normal GP scoring. If you inlcude multiple esk from your recipient, all of them will get the double GP.
Make sure your art or writing meets this event’s minimum requirements.
Comics and batches are allowed, but you only get to double the points for one panel or one submission within the batch. You do not get to double points for the entire comic or entire batch upload.
You can only use the double score once, even if you decide to make multiple separate gifts for your recipient.
Deadline for posting gifts is January 7th
Please submit your gift sometime between December 1st and January 7th.
Please sign up only if you know you will be able to make your gift before January 7th!
If you absolutely cannot submit your gift before the deadline please contact the TWWM team as soon as you know by note to let us know. We will arrange extension periods for anyone who has unforeseen setbacks that delay their participation. If the extension deadline is missed then you will be removed from the activity and we will arrange for a back-up artist to create a gift for your assigned recipient.
You MUST tell us ASAP if you can't participate so we can make arrangements for your gift recipient! Please send us a group note in this case.
If you have some extra time on your hands, you may also sign up as a back-up artist/writer to take the place of a player who is unable to make the deadline,
