    So I got the first part of my Secret Santa gift on Christmas day, but since the holiday forums were up for some time, I didn't get around to posting it.

    Well, the package in question arrived today! In a strange box, I might add.

    I can't eat all that!

    Looking inside, we see all the goodies!

    That is a BIG brownie.

    Free him!

    It's Alpha! Employee of the Year of Garlond Ironworks! And he even comes with the miniature Omega that they made to accompany him on his travels at the end of the raid series! That's awesome!

    Context:


    It even came with a nice letter. It has some private info in it, so I'll transcribe the safe parts.
    Dear Zython,

    Happy New Year! Also Merry Christmas (late), but technically Epiphany doesn't happen until January 6th, so hopefully this makes it to you there it time.

    I wasn't sure what to get you beyond something off your Steam Wishlist. However, I saw that you play a lot of Final Fantasy XIV, so I hope this little guy will help keep you company and bring you some luck along the way.

    My family does a lot of baking during the Christmas season, so we wanted to send you some of our favorites. There are chocolate-dipped pretzels, regular and white chocolate crunch clusters (it's a combination of Capitan Crunch, marshmallows, Almond Bark and nuts known only to my Grandmother-in-law and my daughter), and fruitcake. You might want to baste the fruitcake in bourbon for a few days before eating, if that's your thing. It's a little dry otherwise.

    Usually, we send along a current Christmas card in these Secret Santa boxes, but since 2020 was a dumpster fire, we're recycling our 2019 cards instead. Just add one to the ages of all the kids.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy everything. And if you ever happen to go to PAX South, maybe we'll see you there.

    Best Wishes,

    Shdwcaster

    These are great gifts! The food looks yummy, and I have been playing FFXIV a ton during the pandemic.

    And who was the kind soul who sent me these goodies (if you read the letter pretend to be shocked here)? Why, none other than @shdwcaster! Thank you so much!

    Blast, I forgot to post this here as well - emhyhwS.gif

    I received a mysterious email from Humble Bundle referring to a gift from an unknown email -
    u0Wi2WL.png

    It turns out to be for Per Aspera - a martian city builder / management sim I had been looking at on Steam, and then a message arrived from one @Brovid Hasselsmof, exposing themselves as Satan!. Apparently, there is a thing on the way, which I eagerly anticipate, but I must build on Mars in the meantime. Honestly, building on Mars on it's own is awesome, so thank you very much!

    Merry New Year / Happy Xmas to ye!

    I've been tardy, and I apologize. I received one package shortly before Christmas, and another shortly after.

    First, Santa gave me two board games to play with my kids. I'm now the proud and excited owner of GPS, Mountain Goats, and an expansion for each that raises the player count. So far we've tried Mountain Goats, and it's a lot of fun! Both say they play in a bout 10 minutes. I find board game estimates to be almost always wrong so I was thrilled when we played Mountain Goats in about 20 minutes. Not bad for an initial run where 5 people were learning the rules and 4 of those people are in elementary school!

    I forgot to snap a picture of these (was too curious to see what came from a shop called "Board Game Tables" in such a not-table-sized box) so pay no attention to Sequoia in the middle.
    mxlmf3viqsvk.png

    Next up, I received a very heavy box with many things in it. First, I have to say the wrapping was awesome. Santa, it turns out, has some lovely architectural drawings laying around to use as scrap paper. I took and loved drafting in high school, my first real job was a draftsman for a local mobile parts manufacturer, and I wanted to pursue architecture in college, but it wasn't offered anywhere I could afford to go so it was a real treat to get packages wrapped in paper with nifty front elevations on them!

    After unwrapping the gifts, I found a stack of comics that I've already started reading. Planet Hulk is the early favorite. Following that is a copy of "The Airship Adventures of Little Nemo" which I hadn't heard of before but will be reading just as soon as I finish up "Woken Furies." After that, my oldest son has already called dibs on reading it next. And Santa found out that we're a family of vegetarians as well so I've now got a copy of "America's Test Kitchen: Vegan for Everybody," and we're trying out a chili recipe this weekend that sounds delicious. My wife and I are always looking for ways to inject more variety into our weekly menu-planning sessions, and this book has already come in handy. And last, but not least, I was given a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for Switch! It's installed already and I'll be digging in either after I finish Dicey Dungeons or when I just can't wait anymore. I haven't played LA since I was a kid, and the graphic treatment Nintendo used for the remake looks fantastic. Thank you Santa! Everything you sent is a hit! :)

    @jclast I'm glad you're enjoying things already and I hope that chili works well for you, my partner and I thought that recipe was awesome! Do let me know how Link's Awakening is, it's a favorite from my childhood on the big gray GameBoy.

    Oddly though, the board games and board game tables were not from me, unless I've developed a habit of sleep-shopping.

    Well now I have a Christmas mystery on my hands - I really thought it was this since it's the only Secret Santa I do! Merry Christmas anyway, and thank you again for the wonderful gifts! :)

    I have been notified that my Satan/Santa has shipped a thing, and been provided with a tracking number indicating it should be delivered later this week.
    As well as temptation: a link to a Google doc, with a warning that following that link would ruin all surprises. The warning was in all caps, so, pretty serious I think.

    But, the temptation to peek, just a little...
    I'll try to be strong.

    Checking tracking information, it no longer has an ETA, just "In Transit, Arriving Late".

    @Elin, sorry I didn't reveal myself sooner. Have been busy doing my honey do list during the winter break.

    Glad you and your husband liked the gifts. I seen the sno-cone maker on your Amazon wish list and it reminded me of going to the North Shore on Oahu and getting shave ice!

    My wife was born and raised there and I was stationed there in the Army for almost 6 years.

    Let me know if that cook book is any good! I might have to pick it up too!

    Also, worried my Satan forgot about me :( Haven't heard anything, hope he/she is ok.

    Everything was amazing! I have more pictures, life just went sideways for a hot minute. I will try and post the extra pictures soon. We've gone through the book, but haven't made anything yet. I'll be sure to post pictures when I do!

    Funny, I posted this yesterday and my Satan package arrived in the mail today. My kids got to the mail before I knew what was going on, so I only got a pic of them with their loot. I will post it here in a couple of hours!

    Then the next gift came and I made sure to let the pup check it out first.

    Thanks Santa! Sorry for the delay on the post. I've been super busy and I'm hoping to hook this up this weekend and check it out more! Super cool gift though and excited to get into it! Santa remains a mystery though!

    Hey all!

    For anyone who has not received anything from their Satan, could you please @ me so I can add start following up with your giftees?

    And for all of those who are gifting but their satanees have not received anything, can you please send me a PM? We're getting near enough to mid-month that we'll need to start making arrangements so that everyone can get gifted.

    Remember - as long as some part of your gift arrives before the end of January, we're gonna count that as a win! and digital gifts do count!

    Belated additions post:

    I already PMed Iloveslimes my thanks over the holiday forum time, but he also shipped out some holiday treats that I was able to share with my family, and a copy of bloodborne for the switch! I've been wanting to play this for quite a while so I was super stoked to receive it! I hope everyone had great holidays and this remains the best community I've been a part of after several decades. Love this place and you guys!

    Woot! You get a copy of Orconomics! This is one of my favorite books and it takes place in world that is kind of like World of Warcraft. If you like this book then there is an Orconomics II and a third book is currently being written.
    I’ve also included a card I made based on a quote from Orconomics II (the quote is slightly bastardized).
    Fun story, I’ve talked about this book a lot with my girlfriend. It wasn’t until she saw a physical copy of the book (I have the ebook) that she realized that the name was Orconomics. She just thought I was dumb and was mispronouncing Economics.

    Thank you @ZeroCow
    I'm looking forward to reading Orconomics, it sounds right up my alley. And the cookbook looks fun, because I'm a sucker for bad puns and the Lovecraft mythos (the first recipe is Martini: Shaken, not Hastur'd.
    The first random NPC is a chaotic neutral female Dwarf, with high con and low int who lives an upper middle class life as a trader, smuggler or thief.
    And, of course, the D&D Movies, I haven't seen these in years, I'm looking forward to hitting that first chapter of the cookbook hard for a movie night.

    Thank you @ZeroCow
    I'm looking forward to reading Orconomics, it sounds right up my alley. And the cookbook looks fun, because I'm a sucker for bad puns and the Lovecraft mythos (the first recipe is Martini: Shaken, not Hastur'd.
    The first random NPC is a chaotic neutral female Dwarf, with high con and low int who lives an upper middle class life as a trader, smuggler or thief.
    And, of course, the D&D Movies, I haven't seen these in years, I'm looking forward to hitting that first chapter of the cookbook hard for a movie night.

    Yay! I'm glad it finally arrived! Those dice took six weeks to ship to me! I had everything else and I just kept waiting for the dice to arrive.

    Then of course we had USPS who decided to take their sweet time!

    And I hope that adventurers on your future campaigns wear proper protection so they don't become a Rocky Mountain oyster type delicacy to a painting or a wall that are definitely not mimics that have developed unique tastes...

    Hey, Santee! (Or is it Satanee? Santanee, maybe? Blazes, I don't know... is Santan a word that might apply here?)

    Just a little post to let you know the gift is finally, after all this time and upheaval, on its way. Sorry for the wait, but what with the absolute bonkers-ness of the last few weeks, well... consider this something of a bright spot to look forward to on the 20th. It's overdue for Christmas, but I hope you still get a little joy out of it!

    Dear Satan, your final package made it! From Threadless no less!

    Aw yiss, look at that nice packaging job, be a shame if some one ripped it on open with their eager paws...

    Lookat these fellows! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT EM!. They are so cute in fact that my wife immediately tried to swipe the backpacking birb offa me! Now I gotta buy her her own version and we need to coordinate opposite dates we can wear it--it's a whole thing!

    But anyway, 80's dress-up montage!!

    Thank you Satan! My life is forever made better with birds.

    Ok, ready at last!

    So first off I got gifted the means to enjoy a pair of my old favorite games in HD glory!

    Unfortunately for it, awesome though it is, it got blown out of the water by the other gift:


    A NEW TURNTABLE!

    It’s awesome and the moment I powered on its Bluetooth synced to our sound system. For the inaugural play, there was really only one choice both for myself and to be appropriate to Secret Satans:

    Suffice to say, it sounds and looks awesome:

    And now, after multiple delays due to rampant stupidity and technological glitches, we present the two-part finale to "A Very Kitteh Christmas", already in progress.

    Part III: Gotta Frame Them All

    Yes, I know, it's been forever and I should have posted these a few weeks ago, but with everything going on, it got lost in the shuffle. I'm going to go blame leftover vestiges of 2020 and the usual bunch of idiots whose antics have been well-recorded.

    Anyways, on to happier stuff! Like gifts, and cats!


    uafCecQ.jpg?1

    I have to admit, of all the things, I wasn't expecting an envelope bubble-mailer type thing. But I wondered what was inside it...?


    nF3zHMi.jpg

    I've... never heard of this company. But judging by the name, well... they sell some kinds of prints? Welp, only way forward is to open it up and see...

    And inside...

    m0Dr18c.jpg?2

    2fb7AN7.jpg?2

    rVRpY8S.jpg?2

    9KVTVwy.jpg?2

    ylrfq8N.jpg?2

    zKMT1GO.jpg?2

    Six suitable-for-framing Pokemon prints- an entire team- or a rescue squad, if the Vulpix print is anything to go by! These look amazing, Santa, and as they're in a safe place for now- we're going to get them some frames and get them up on the wall in either my room or my niece's room once things out in the world calm down! (She absolutely adores the Vulpix and the Eevee- particularly the Eevee because that's the Let's Go game she's working through... but I doubt anything will beat the love she has for her first starter, Jake (from State Farm), the Inteleon. Yeah, she saw a lot of State Farm commercials on her iPad....)

    But these are awesome and thanks for sending them along!



    Part IV: Not Christmas Without Cookies

    And, finally, we come to the fourth box. It got opened before I could get a picture of it, but here's the next-best thing:

    fetSs8y.jpg

    Well, there's something in there... can't tell what until I open it all the way, though...

    XJ5PGHp.jpg?2

    It looks like some enterprising Santa has sent me delicious-looking cookies!

    fPmKLWI.jpg?1

    Three boxes worth of Kinder hippo cookies, with chocolate hazelnut cream! This is one of those things we just can't get out here- at least not without driving to a store with a pretty big international section- but I can say they are yummy and a big hit with the whole house!

    And I don't know if my Santa's made themselves known, but- thanks for all the gifts, and many apologies for getting this up late- what with everything, you almost got lost in the shuffle!
