Great Christmas Party last night

Postby KDSonoma » Tue Dec 18, 2018 7:37 am

I want to thank all of the organizers and all the 22 PAS that showed up for last night's Christmas Party. That was a great turnout.

Chalnoth as usual gave us awesome trivia questions (and hats off to the large number of hilarious answers from participants *smiles*).

It was awesome to see so many players take time away from RL to be ingame to wish their guildmates Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.

It was indeed a great party! My thanks go to so many--to all who helped organize for sure. Queen Mum did a wonderful job on our decorations and refreshments, as always. Thank you to Drakelord, for his delightful story of Santa Mouse--with a surprising ending. I loved the little ,la Santa Mouse spoke. Thank you to the secret elves who helped Santa pack that gift box! Thank you, Chalnoth, for one of the most challenging holiday trivia contests ever and for providing prizes. Thank you, KD, for a couple stories. I love hearing about PAS and our early days. Thank you, Joyce, for those surprising gifts under the tree. Thank you to everyone who brought gifts to give to PAS friends. Thank you to everyone who came. It was wonderful seeing 22 PAS there for a party. I'm so glad we have this tradition!

Merry Christmas everyone!

For those that missed the story here it is again

Tis the night before Christmas
As told by AW

The Ancient Wyrm stood tall and proud over looking the nursery.
Clad in only his night shirt and cap
he looked over the cribs and small beds with the baby Wyrms, Drakes,
Dragons, Greater Dragons, all curled and cover in bed.
Their dreams this evening of the hord of gold old
St Nick would bring them this night.

With a yawn he turn to go to his own bed when he heard a “Click, click”
off in the distance.
Thinking what could that be, he wonders over to his vault,
“Click, Click” he once more hears.
This time from the other side of the vault door,
turning the knob, he opened the door looking around inside its dark room
he once more hears, “Click, Click”. What can that be he wonders.
“Click, Click”, once more then a squeak of hinges this time.
That sound he knew a chest had been opened.

With a roar the Ancient Wyrm spat fire at the torches within the vault
and said with a curse ready,
“Who dares enters my vault on this very special night”?
A small voice off in a very dark corner says, “Santa Mouse, la. “

Santa Mouse? Could it be? No it couldn’t, Santa was by all the tales
a man, a human, but a mouse, ney it could not be.
Showed thyself Santa Mouse, the Ancient Wyrm bellows,
again flames fly from its mouth as it looks all around the huge vault.
“I am here, la”, comes the small voice under his feet.
Quick as he could he turns, his flames fire and he hits his tail.
With a curse on his lips he bellows once more,
“Why are you here Santa Mouse”?
Again the small voice answer him, just under his feet.
“Why I am here to be sure that all have a equal share of the hoard this
evening la.
To be sure that all will have fair and equal shares
I am checking your vault amount, la.

My Amount? The Ancient Wyrm asked,
“why would it be necessary to do such a thing?

Well it be known that you have the largest of the hoards
among all the Dragons, la.

And when St Nicks drops off his gifts to the others
he wishes to be sure that they receive it and not end up in here, la.

Besides do you know by count what you have here, la.

What! Fire once more lit the room,
“No I have no idea of the amount I have here,
only that its is mine and not anyone else’s!

He felt something climbing up under his nightshirt.
With twists and turns he sought to dislodge this climber but failed.
His movements were to slow to catch this nimble climber.
Soon it was on his head, he felt it march across his head,
he saw a flash of red as it climbed down and across his face to stand before
his very eyes. It was a mouse dressed in red.

With a squeak “I am Santa Mouse, la.”
He whips out a book, on it are the words, Bad List.
“So far you are just border lined for your name in this book,
a list Santa checks twice a day, la.

“Now if you wish to be sure to stay out of it, la”
“You best changes your ways, la”.

With a look of worry the Ancient Wyrm says.
“No no I will be good, please be sure to tell Santa.”

With a nod to the Ancient Wyrm,
Santa Mouse leaps off the top of his face to a large gold pile below,
and as slick as a rat, vanishes within the gold pile.

The Ancient Wyrm turns to lumber off to his bed,
his thoughts this evening are not on Santa, but Santa Mouse.

The next morning shouts of glee and happiness awake the Ancient one,
all of the other dragons are so proud of the hoard under their feet,
each with a card that reads, Merry Christmas AW. la.

With a worry look he rushes to check his vault, and just as he is about to
open it he hears prancing and pawing of little hoofs, and a great shout, “
Now!Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer and Vixen, On Comet, on! Cupid, on!
Donder and Blitzen, Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
As he opens his vault he at shock to see that his hoard is double the size
and on top is a huge card that reads. Merry Christmas, la!

I had a great time at the Christmas party until something was said during the trivia.
I actually thought about leaving cause it was disrespectful.
The person who made the insulting comment is also the person who said to leave real life stuff out of discord.
I'm not sure why she felt the need to bring up religion during a christmas party.
And a religion that she knows nothing about, cause she strongly needs educating on the matter.

shows like Big Love give Mormons a bad name and are untrue.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the official church) disavowed polygamy over 5 years before it was illegal in the state of Utah (before Utah was even declared a state). The members who went against this was excommunicated from the church and they created their own churches. Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints & the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are not offiliated with the official church. (these churches are what gives the official church the bad rep)


At the time when polygamy was active in the United States, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was not the only church that practiced it. And the official church has issued a statement, asking people not to call us Mormons. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.


And yes you read that right, I did say "WE". Before you start making fun of ones religion, check the facts and you will learn something. And when I say WE, there are at least 3 members of PAS that are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.


It was very insulting hearing how you were making fun of a religion you know nothing about. Especially after your insulting comments before about not talking about personal stuff in Discord. You asked me how I was, how was I to know you actually didn't want to know? next time you ask I will know you really don't want an answer, cause you showed your true colors.


I don't normally respond to uneducated people, but the more I thought about this... the more I felt I needed to respond...
sorry if my comments upset anybody... I just felt this needed to be said.

A person's religion (or lack of) is their own business, and PAS guild policy has always been to keep that off limits.
