Some are already doing their yearly recaps, but we at the Creeper's Lab prefer to complete the year first. And what better way is there to complete it than with our traditional offerings? This month:
- The Advent Calendar returns
- Christmas cards coming up
- Anarchy in Kenorland
- Hunter's Lodge
A favorite of many is coming back this year: the Advent Calendar! As before, there is a mix of new and returning items to be scored daily.
For those not familiar with it, the concept is simple: go there, get a gift, and you can do so every day starting today up until (and including) Christmas! The rotation happens every day at around midnight, Eastern time.
The Loyalty Baubles are still in play, too! Every day that you visit the calendar, you'll get your gift alongside a token. You can then trade these at the hut nearby. A new item have been added to the collection while old favorites remain available. Which items you decide to pick is up to you!
If you had any Loyalty Baubles left from last year, they are still accepted.
If you miss out on some items, every week, the Grinch will be there to cover you - for a price. However, the Grinch pledges loyalty to no one, and there will be no catching up on the extra rewards!
This is located in Central's Seasonal Park. From Grand Central Station, in the basement, use the Residential Line until you're next to the snowy park. Alternatively, walk West from the station, passing in front of the Community Centre then following that path to the North.
Special thanks go to Twixxi for setting this up once again!
No matter if you're continuing a collection, or want one for the first time, Doctacosa's Christmas cards are back!
Visit the giant mailbox right next to the advent calendar, submit your mail address, and get a signed Christmas card in the mail from me, later this month! I'm sending these worldwide. There is a limited quantity available, and it's first come, first serve, so don't forget to do this early to secure yours!
If you can't get in-game, you can also use this special page on the forums to submit your address.
As if Minecraft wasn't chaotic enough, proper anarchy will happen in Kenorland this month! The environment and the other players are against you, PvP is allowed, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!
Similar to UHC (but without the kicking), you have four targets to complete:
- Kill a player: They're out to get you, better take the initiative!
- Reach level 30: Make sure you survive against the elements and others.
- Place a bucket of lava: Either as a defensive measure, or against someone else...
- Craft an enderchest: Can your valuables be truly safe anywhere else?
Each goal successfully completed will net you 5 Merit Points at the end of the month, for a potential of 20 points.
Unlike previous rounds, the server itself has decided to get in on the anarchy. Players beware, things could be unpredictable...
Let's have a jolly good time in the Hunter's Lodge this month! The Elves are helping Sandy Claws prepare some very interesting toys this year and we need your help to protect the children! We have all heard of Krampus, but is he really the bad guy here...?
Don't forget that the Hunter's Lodge was rebalanced in 1.19, while the submission for Acolyte Tokens was moved to the lobby, in the survival wing, behind the creeper with the same name.
As with every new month, the guilds have new targets. You have until the end of this month to complete them and claim your tokens in each world! You can also continue progressing on Gondwana's Specialist tasks. The targets aren't to your liking? All players can now choose to drop suggestions in Laurasia's guildhall for the next month!
If you need details on any of these, the wiki page about the Monthly Challenges is updated as soon as each of these is ready at the beginning of the month!
