♪ Christmastime is here… ♫

#1 Post by Zizzo »

So, new Christmas tradition: spending a few hours cycling through my… [checks notes] 55 currently active characters so that they can all pick up the prodigy point from the special holiday event that started firing again last night. :twisted: Some of that time, admittedly, was spent tweaking my savefile-scraping character-listing Perl script to detect which characters had gotten the event and which hadn't. Which in turn led to the surprising and amusing discovery that some of my characters are apparently so old and so infrequently revisited that they weren't eligible for this year's event — because they'd already gotten the event last year. :shock: :mrgreen: At the pace I play, I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't just start planning characters around the assumption that they're eventually going to get three prodigies. (Hmm, speaking of which, perhaps now would be an opportune time to start a new character… :wink: )

23 lucky characters this year. (Would've been 24, but one of them won first. :mrgreen: ) Now that I think of it, this seems like the sort of thing that Automatic Notes should be providing a reminder for, but I'm still trying to figure out how to detect that the player has gotten the presents and we should delete the note.

It could just be that St. Nicholas got stuck in a chimney somewhere (or became intoxicated through excessive mince pie consumption) and some lucky non-ToMEr has your precious Prodigy points moldering on a mantelpiece somewhere... :evil:
