Good evening! Here are another two announcements during our final week of Midwinter Shenanigans:

Holiday Playlist — After four Karaoke Fridays in December and multiple posts by residents of the West and visitors alike, submissions for our Holiday Playlist have finally been gathered! This Dispatch contains an index of all Christmas songs shared in the RMB this month, sorted by alphabetical order, and has been designed to be updated every year during future Midwinter Shenanigans. Whether it is one's most favorite or least favorite Christmas song, you can find it here if it was posted this month on the RMB.

Collection Contest Prizes — Earlier this month, the Card Club announced the Christmas Card Collection Contest as part of the regional Midwinter Shenanigans, which lasted from the start of the month until Christmas Eve. Four players decided to enter, and their collections were judged by Fhaengshia, Fuentana and Giovanniland.

Wauwa and Ventel, both newer players to the scene of the West Pacific, decided to enter the contest and collect Christmas cards, and their participation is well appreciated. Mediobogdum, a known resident and card collector, submitted an existing collection and greatly increased its size throughout the month, arriving at a total of almost a hundred themed cards. Last but not least, Nagaraningrad participated with a creative entry: at first sight their collection may not seem Christmas-themed, but if you zoom out and your monitor allows, you will see a beautiful design of cards forming a Christmas tree; their addition of several TWP cards and a legendary on top of the tree being the cherry on the cake.

Therefore, here are the results! The Card Club also appreciated the high turnout, so in the Christmas spirit, all nations have received a Legendary Card:

4th: WauwaSanta is definitely real, who's asking?Season 2 Artoonia
3rd: VentelChristmasSeason 2 Blogotopia
2nd: MediobogdumSanta's Christmas MemoriesSeason 2 Reploid Productions
1st: NagaraningradNagaraningrad's Selection CollectionSeason 2 Altmer Dominion

That is all for today's announcement! Stay tuned for Punday Monday awards very soon.

Woo hoo A legendary card. Thanks!

Even though I came in 3rd, I feel like a winner. lol

Does Cupid have the misfortune of having been named for the wrong holiday? Or is it all a misunderstanding?

In poetry from the Archaic period, he was "represented as a studly immortal who was irresistible to both man and gods." It was later when the Greeks portrayed him more as a playful and mischievous child. Then came the Victorians and Valentine's Day.

According to Jolly ole saint nick's lore, Cupid is quiet and ready to help anyone in need. He didn’t join in the teasing of Rudolph when he arrived. But he wasn't confident enough to stand up for him against flying coach Comet, who instigated the bullying, outcasting, I mean teasing.

Answering issues with your economy in mind. You don't always get the right questions to raise it, but just be on the look out for em. They will happen eventually.

As with all things, this game involves that which gives validity to existence: Time

Patience is key to reaching your goals for your nation/stats.

Lovely stuff.

Sort of. The idea is that at some point in Judean history, they traveled out to the Pacific and left 12 people there and they formed the first Kingdom of Jericho which they named after their hometown.

Hopefully we can keep people blowing 7 trumpets walking around the walls for 7 hours on the 7th day

*brews a fresh pot of that West Pacific blend*

This year everyone got boxing gloves for xmas so they could be ready for the day after.

The poll for the second round of our Reindeer Death Match is up! Commiserations to Dancer*, Prancer, Cupid and Donner who were all eliminated, and congrats to the other four who advanced to this round! Vote in the second poll to decide which two reindeer will advance further.

*Dancer and Vixen both had 5 votes each, but for the purposes of tie-breaking Vixen advanced due to having four WA nations' votes in comparison to Dancer's two.

I'm spending it with my Dad in El Paso to watch the Sun Bowl on the 31st. My wife and my mom will hang out on new years eve, and I'll be back the next day.

Whoopsies!

On another note, choose Vixen!!!

Yy4u, Bhang Bhang Duc, Dilber, Fuentana, and 2 othersAv Libertas Vindex, and New ulsan

I vote for Comet, because comets will fall on other reindeers' heads and defeat them.

TODAY IN THE WEST

Happy Holidays! No, really: we're celebrating Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Yule!

Besides this, it is Punday Monday amidst Reindeer Death Match, so let's make our puns about the reindeer you are voting for. And don't forget to vote in the poll!

Don't forget to send your Secret Santa gifts if you participated! I'll be flying mine later today for the rest of the week.

Shoutout to my own Secret Santa Polite Penguin/Evil Mother (aka Icarus) for this awesome self-drawn Christmas Card that I'm flying as my flag all week!

Wow! Congratulations!

Hi guys! How're ya doing? I think i finally doomed my economy. Well damn. As the banner says, Seen Better Days. How're your countries going? What did you change in them? I think it's funny to share your decisions with everyone to discuss, i guess. (maybe it's better for a forum thread, but anyway)

I refuse to Comet on Dancer's defeat to Vixen.

Sorry, but who are Dancer and Vixen?

Two of Santa Claus' reindeer: our entire reindeer death match poll event is themed after the nine reindeer (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph).

I originally read that as “giving the reindeer babies shots” and I thought “that’s terrible, giving alcohol to minors”.
