Holiday Gift Tickets

You must log in with each eligible character before January 25th to get your holiday ticket. You do not have to use the ticket to claim the gift itself (there is no deadline for that). But 2009 tickets will not longer be available as of that date!

Costume Trader

Sarah will be leaving us at the end of the month. Make sure you've concluded all your trades with her by before February 2nd.

Friendly advice: avoid waiting for the last day to do it. Real life has a way of interfering at the most inopportune time and if your memory is anything like mine, you'll only remember you were supposed to do it the day after it's too late. Better safe than sorry!
