Santa Run 2016 Recap

Hey everyone!

Yesterday was the Santa Run.  I actually logged on and went afk at about 8pm Friday night.  I knew it would be a huge event and I wanted to make sure I got a spot in the first area.  Well, it was a great idea, because that area filled up really quickly! We ended up with five or six areas full of wizards by the time the run started.

Here I am in areas one and two, joining in the dance lines.
Area 1 dance line
Area 2 dance line!
After the run through Wizard City, we ported to my houses.  I had decorated five different houses, all connected with teleporters so that there would be plenty of room for everyone to spread out.  I had a lot of fun jumping between all the houses, asking some Christmas movie trivia questions and awarding packs to people.  Next year I will be sure to check all my questions ahead of time to make sure that both the questions and answers can be seen in text chat!
Trivia and PVP!

I was so busy porting people and answering questions and doing trivia that I didn't get a whole lot of time to just chat with everyone, but I did get to meet and add some new people, which is always fun! I also didn't have a chance to take any screenshots of the after party, but I do have some from other wizards that I will share with you.

I really did have a lot of fun at this event.  I can't believe how many people were able to show up!  Many of you told me this was your first Run, and I hope everyone had a great time.  Be sure to thank Edward from Around the Spiral with Edward Lifegem for planning and hosting this event.  Also, thanks to Michael Frost and Frostcaller for helping co-host too!  I cannot wait until the next event.  I hope to see you all there!
Merry Christmas Kingsisle!
