    Day 12: December 25th

    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    Each day will see an addition to the EMC 12 Days of Christmas song as written below. Most of them will be posted first thing in the morning (6-8 am EMC time), while some may be delayed or early due to actual release (Aikar related). The numbers and repetition have nothing to do with the items/events, but they make it sound better when you sing it.

    Details of that day's event/item/etc will be posted in the comments on the thread so you can keep track.

    Please do not pester the staff about what is coming next. They won't tell you :p

We're doing this on utopia so that everyone can fly. (Note: If you attended the baking a birthday cake event in July, it's very similar.)

  8. 7 Flames a Burning

    Type /promo candle to receive a 2016 version of our Holiday Candle. Available til New Years Day.

    We re-release this promo with a different year because of its importance. The Holiday Candle was originally created to pay homage to the various holiday traditions in multiple cultures. At this time of year, it’s increasingly important to encourage the expanding of one’s understanding of the other cultures so that we can all learn to respect them, and each other, more.

    So after (or before) you claim your promo in-game, I hope that you each take time to read up on the following traditions that different cultures celebrate around this time of year (some of which involving candles):

    Why does Alex's title graphic consist of two separate images? :p

    Edit: Huh, it doesn't. It's just that there's an empty image above it. Does that have to do with how you want it to be displayed at the homepage?
