Hello, New Eden! Did you think me dead? A great immortal man once said “It would be a sad error in judgment to mistake me for a corpse.”
In the spirit of the holidays, for the sake of Live Events, we will be hosting our fifth annual Luminaire Snowball Fight! After the outstanding success of the last four snowball fights, we’re dousing Luminaire with snow and fireworks once again!
Bring your Festival Launchers, snowballs, and fireworks for some fun, games, and insanity in Luminaire! If you need a Festival Launcher or fireworks, we have plenty on-hand! Just ask me and I’ll give you some!
We even got a note put up in the EVE Launcher!
Snowball Fight Details:
Luminaire VII (Caldari Prime) - Moon 6 - Federation Navy Assembly Plant
2100 EVE Time
That’s 4pm USA EST!
Note: The Party will be at the Federation Navy Assembly Plant, NOT the Citadel!
I have reached out to CCP to spark their interest!
-CCP Falcon and CCP Guard provided an in-game and Launcher advertisement for us, as well as a Twitter post!
I have reached out to our favorite music streaming services to provide some sound!
-New Eden Radio’s DJ Daggaroth, DJ Exectech, and DJ Fantazmythe played awesome music for us! www.newedenradio.com
Lightshows will be held (similar to the manner in which EVE Radio does on occasion)
-prizes will be devised based on discussions about this event: prizes will include PLEX, ships, weapons, and other comical gifts
-to participate, bring devices that emanate light: lasers, remote-repairs, cap transfers, target spectrum breakers, and drones, etc.
-only individual pilots can be rewarded! You can partner up with someone if you like, but prize packages can only be awarded to individual pilots!
-Note: all prizes will be contracted to winners AFTER the event has concluded!
"Secret Santa" Gift Exchanges
-bring a gift to get a gift!
-items worth under $200 million ISK are encouraged, to be contracted to Commander A9 at Luminaire VII Federal Administration Information Center during the event to make the exchange with other participants: everyone who gives a gift gets a gift
-please mark the contract with “Secret Santa” to differentiate it from prizes and any donations, or else your gift might be accidentally given away as a prize!
-in outstanding circumstances, you can relay your gift earlier than the event, as long as it’s as close to Luminaire as possible
-Note: Secret Santa gifts will be exchanged AFTER the event has concluded, so we’re not wasting time trying to hand out the gifts in mid-event!
Festival Launchers and Snowballs/Fireworks will be donated to any pilot who does not have one or runs out so the fun can continue!
Thank You To Those Who Have Donated! Any donations go towards obtaining equipment and prizes!
