    FINISHED!

    DARK LORD POTTER
    SECRET SANTA

    Due to popular demand the give away is going to be upgraded into a Secret Santa of sorts. If a game has a duplicate and you're interested, then feel free to ask for it specifically and we'll get you it, for everything else it's going in a gigantic virtual basket along with a list of people who want to join in on the secret santa to make it fair.

    Note: Don't ask for one of the expensive games, that's just being a grinch.

    BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

    I heard you guys like reading stuff, right? If not you're really in the wrong forum. I got in contact with some of my good friends who have a habit of punching J.K Rowling in the face and stealing her sandbox for their own use.

    Really she was just asking for it.

    Some of your favourite authors have stepped up to offer a few lucky people the chance to have an idea that they have in their mind, get put onto digital paper!

    The following authors are generously donating their time and effort to write out a 5,000 word oneshot for those lucky enough to draw them out of the hat:

    • Shezza
    • nonjon
    • Joe
    • LittleChicago
    • Jon
    • Ryuugi Shi
    • The Santi
    • TheWiseTomato
    • Johnny Farrar
    • Swimdraconian
    • Lulzing
    • Voice of the Nephilim
    • Portus
    • Samuel Black
    • Zephyrus
    • Water Mage
    • MattSilver

    I'd like to take a moment to everyone who has donated their time and money selflessly towards this event, making it so far an astounding success.

    I'm prouder than I could have ever thought at how much everyone is willing to give to one another.

    Merry Christmas DLP.

    Who's awesome?

    You're awesome.

    Yeah, that might be the best way to do it. Those who want to join in send me a PM with the games you're putting up for it, and I'll put together two randomized lists and play match the numbers to determine who gets what.

    Can you guys from now on state whether you're contributing or requesting from now on?

    Also, for those who want to contribute, but don't have access to funds right now, Steam has a promotion on right now alongside the discounts, where for every 'achievement' you get for it you get a gift (like a voucher, or a full game!) or a piece of coal, (coal is more valuable generally!)

    that's right. We want coal. :3

    Do we get to choose our gifts or is it random?

    Santa, I would love a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 for this Christmas.

    I would like to contribute but I don't really earn any money these days, probably I can chip in the next time.

    I've dropped too much on games these last few months to possibly justify spending a cent more, I've got barely enough left for next month's rent. That said if anything else can be offered, I'm willing to toss non-monetary things in. If those not paying can still recieve, no need to waste shooters on me, I'm not good enough to warrant it as a gift lol.
