September 2020

This month we bring you a favorite of mine, Giftbags!

Normal giftbags come 1 for every 25 credits purchased during the month of September.
There will also be a giftbag in the Milestone wares. (As always, if you can't see it or it shows as bought, give me day or two to fix)

The first 100 credits comes with an extra giftbag for every 10 credits! That means buying 100 credits gets you 14 giftbags straight off the bat!


Again, we're mixing old with new in the way of minipets. And a new tradition, the Shadow minipet list is expanded to... two!

And the monochrome giftbag persists! You may trade 5 giftbags in with EXCHANGE to get a monochrome giftbag. This bag is like the normal one... except that, when opened, everyone in the room with you opens one too! So, make sure you're in the room with more than 5 people and it's instantly awesome. There's another we're pondering for later, depending on the reception of this one.

GIFTBAG EXCHANGE <color>
-------------------
Each color has a theme you might be able to guess. Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange, Violet, and Gold. Nearly everything in each colored giftbag drops from the normal giftbag, but at a lower rate (because there's more to choose from!)

NOTE: Gold is special, and requires 5 unopened giftbags to make 1.
NOTE: Monochrome is special, and required 5 unopened giftbags to make 1.

    his bag is like the normal one... except that, when opened, everyone in the room with you opens one too!

    we learned today it has a cap of 8 people, and it's not random! Be aware, giftbag gifters!

    It should be 10 according to the news from last time.

    Amendment to the Previous
    I just had a nightmare where monochrome giftbags were opened in a room with 80 players. Not only
    would that severely mess up my intentions, it might crash us to do that much math in Rapture all at
    once (Rapture hates math!). They are capped at 10 players. Which is still taking something worth 40-
    55 in value and giving out about 120.

    It's also completely random?

    When I went to Tina's openings, there were several identical group giftbag opens with an overflow of people in the room. Didn't seem to care about when they got there.
    OooOoOo I only read this ... to see Vharen's sig now OOoooOOoo

    The initial roll may be random, but it doesn't reroll on subsequent openings, meaning that the same people are given giftbags on multiple openings as long as they don't leave the room.

    I've never seen eight people or ten people called everyone. How weird is that?

    Hm, I hadn't thought of that. I'll add a randomizer to the room people counter so that it doesn't necessarily give the same people things. Basically, when you open it, it marks itself as opened, closes itself, opens again, notices the mark, and does a third, 4th, 5th, etc opening for the owner and the 10 other people there in player order. So everyone there gets a random item as if they opened their own bag, but I didn't think about how the 10 people would be in the same player order each time.

    When you notice that all the aggro mobs hit you before your partner, it's basically the same thing.
