The holiday season is officially underway! And what does that mean? PRESENTS! :schnoz:
Incantation and I decided to host a Secret Santa event here on the board. For those of you who aren't familiar, here's a summary of how Secret Santas work. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Santa)


If you're interested in entering, please read the rules below, and then PM me and Incantation with the following information:

1. The address you'd like to have your gift delivered to (this info will only be seen by me, Incantation and your Secret Schnoz). You can also provide something in place of an address (Steam ID, email, etc) if you'd prefer a digital gift and/or want to keep your address private.
2. A list of at least 3 gift preferences. Don't leave your Secret Schnoz in the dark! :griffnotevil: Just don't ask for anything like a new laptop, ya goof.


SCHEDULE

Today -thru- November 15: Collecting entries - PM us to enter!
November 16: Incantation and I divide up the entries and randomly assign Schnozzes using a randomizing program (or a bunch of names in a hat...).
November 17: We send out the information to the Schnozzes so that they can buy/make gifts!
November 18 -thru- December 25: The gifts come rolling in! Don't forget to post pictures!!


Canty and I spent a lot of time mulling over an appropriate set of rules to make this fair for everyone. Please go over them if you'd like to participate:

RULES

1. 50 Post Participation Minimum This is a tough one, but we want to ensure a certain level of trustworthiness among the participants. If you don't quite have 50 posts yet, try to rack up your post count in time for the Nov 15 deadline!
2. $15 Price Minimum Feel free to get a single or multiple gifts that add up to $15! Keep in mind that this minimum doesn't include shipping costs. If you choose to participate, do so knowing that SK.net is an international community and you may or may not end up sending gifts to someone in a different country.
3. Handmade Gifts In the interest of fairness, we've decided that handmade gifts will be worth the amount spent on the materials. For example, if you want to create a Beherit out of clay for someone, you can subtract the price of the clay and paint from the $15 total. If you're into 2d art, I would recommend painting a picture and then putting it in a nice store bought frame! Sorry that it's so complicated, but we don't want to leave it open for any bad apples that might ruin the fun for everyone.

I hope we get lots of entries this year! Feel free to discuss the event, and post gift ideas in advance! :slan:

Hey guys, quick reminder that Grail and I will be closing up entries this coming Saturday, the 16th of November. There's still some time left to sign up!

Here's a closer look into my wishlist - http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=12587.0  :ganishka: *joking*

But seriously, I'd be more than happy if my secret santa pre-ordered this for me - http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14097.0 :casca:

Awesome!! :guts: I'm so happy that you liked your presents! I had a feeling that you'd like something handmade. The shirt looks great on you!

Gobs and I loved our presents as well. We recorded a few videos while we were unwrapping, so we'll post those as soon as we can get them set up! :ubik:

Haha that tee art = awesome, Grail! Looking good Branded. Skull Knight would make a good Santa, come to think of it, riding quick in the sky with everyone's presents n dropping em off all hush-hush. Not sure if he's a milk n cookies kinda guy ^_^

My Secret Schnoz was Rhombaad! Dude, thanks a lot for the present, it's DAMN cool. I'm taking him back to work tomorrow, putting him on my desk so people know who they're potentially messing with if they get me mad *joking* ... wish that bag of cash was real :farnese:

Thank you so much to Branded and Incantation, who were very generous and gave us wonderful gifts this year. Here's the play-by-play so that you can see our reactions! :carcus:

First: Introduction

Gobs's phone ran out of memory before we could really get started, but here's a great shot of me blowing my nose.
http://www.youtube.com/v/A7O3RGqKmMw?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

We switched phones and got the first part of Canty's gift:
http://www.youtube.com/v/622Dm77wxmg?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/eebb8f5a-358e-4c9e-8492-970ff3420354_zps97635ada.jpg)

Next: MANGOES
http://www.youtube.com/v/jfx12k_Ev7Q?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

I completely failed to realize that Incantation's most special gift was INSIDE the cryptic note he'd sent me! It's a lovely ink drawing of Casca. We're gonna have to frame this bad boy!
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/7b58a3b1-9271-41d4-8d94-07193e0d760e_zpse1f5d268.jpg)

Next, we opened up Branded's presents:
http://www.youtube.com/v/f2dtuyMjFow?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Like me, Gobs managed to completely miss another terrific present! Here it is:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/32eed771-73c5-47a5-ba3c-9e1f91abca07_zpsc51851d1.jpg)
As a bonus, here are shots of him with his two (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/WP_20131225_010_zps064a8e09.jpg) new shirts. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/WP_20131225_012_zps7380e5f4.jpg)

Again, thanks so much to Branded and Incantation, we really really love our gifts! I can't wait to start reading my manga. :serpico:

Merry Christmas everyone.

I'm so glad you like it. Merry Christmas, IncantatioN!

My Secret Schnoz was Gobolatula! He gave me Escaflowne on Blu-ray and mini Casca and Puck figures. Thank you so much, Gobs! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with Gigantomakhia and Berserk!

I'll post pictures later. I'm at my fiancee's house having Christmas dinner.

Branded, you good man, thank you very very much for the t-shirts and painting. You're the best. I'm wearing your brand shirt right now!

I also love the painting you made. I really appreciate you going through all the effort to make all these gifts.

Thank you so much!!

Also thank you to Incantation for the gift also.

This thing was a lot of fun. We gotta do it again next year.

Post by: IncantatioN on December 25, 2013, 11:14:10 PM
Thanks again, Rhomb. This was a lot of fun, hope to do this again with you guys!

Hope you feel better Grail. Nose blow on cam was hilarious. Glad you liked it Grail and Gobs. I need to get better at wrapping things =_=' ... Kinokuniya didn't have volumes 5 and 6 at the time, so I couldn't grab em. But thanks to you I looked up and read the series ^_^.

Those are some sexy shirts you got there Gobs :ubik:

p.s. my hand-writing with a brush sucks, gonna remedy that for next time heh, I was referring to Shahs in my note.

This year went by fast, didn't it? :isidro: It's time to start collecting entries for this year's Secret Schnoz! Please check out the updated original post (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14100.msg224533#msg224533) for the rules and info on how to participate (and a new banner inspired by the incomparable asic (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=8219.msg225501#msg225501) :slan:).

We've also decided to reduce the minimum gift price to $15. I know a lot of people are giving to the Patreon as well, so please feel free to give us some feedback. Looking forward to seeing who can join in this year!

Responses already! :ubik: Thanks guys!

And Jackolyn, thanks for your feedback - I think you bring up a good point. Incantation and I have had a bit of back-and-forth about this rule. We ended up erring on the side of a higher number, but given the pace of the forum and the size of our community, maybe that's unnecessary. I'd like to ask the participants to see what they're most comfortable with, so I added a poll. :casca:

I'd like to ask the participants to see what they're most comfortable with, so I added a poll. :casca:

The poll is a great idea! I, for one, would love to participate but I'm more of a lurker than I am a poster, however I am just as invested in this community as the high volume posters on this website!
I think that between 50-100 is a good safe number, as it demonstrates a solid level of involvement within the community.
(Though with that being said, I STILL fall short of that number, but you get my point  :casca:.)

And if you were at all uncertain about a person participating, you can go through and do a bit of a "security check" on said person who has a lower number of post frequency to make sure that they're not just spamming for attention or appear untrustworthy in any way.
--Also, check the date that they registered. I myself have been on this forum practically every day since 2012, so just because I have a small amount of posts doesn't mean I'm just a passing visitor! I know that I'm not the only one.  :guts:

I am also aware that the main admin group on here has a very tight circle of people, so I completely understand wanting/requesting a high volume of posts (and a general sense of familiarity with a new participant) before you accept them.

I look forward to hearing what the community has to say about this!

And even if I get to participate or not, I think it's a fantastic idea and I really just love the idea of the Berserk community getting together and doing a Secret Santa. Something about that just makes me over the moon happy!  :ubik:

This isn't really an official thing, but as far as admins go, I can assure you that we would like nothing more than to have more people actively involved in the community.

This is very true, and to be honest when it comes to various Berserk communities, I believe that this is the best one out there. Everyone is invested in the story, characters, and discussions, I couldn't ask for a better forum to be a part of!  :guts:

Thanks a lot for your feedback Jackolyn!

It was really hard deciding what parameters we were going to use last year and we tried to improve on it a little this year by bringing down the minimum spending amount to $15 this year to be fair to i) the person on the receiving end of the present and ii) making it a bit more affordable for the person sending the present considering shipping costs. Grail made a good point about Patreon participating members and I hope they can participate as well.

The poll is a great idea! I, for one, would love to participate but I'm more of a lurker than I am a poster, however I am just as invested in this community as the high volume posters on this website!

Your feedback brings up good points on the post count issue, giving us something to think of for sure.  With choosing the upper limit, we were trying to be fair to everyone involved in the community today without having to go through a security check because if lowered, it would be a bit unfair to turn someone down if they were a casual lurker from say 2002 or 2003, hasn't posted in years and has a double digit post count. I think we'd have to use our discretion in that sort of situation to see if they've been active in the past year or during times when Berserk episodes were being released. This's been an amazing time to be a Berserk fan in terms of where the series is at story-wise, having access to amazing podcasts thanks to awesome Admins who've been open to clarifying every reader's queries about the series, discussing merchandise ... so there's no dearth of topics or good discussions that could be had.

And even if I get to participate or not, I think it's a fantastic idea and I really just love the idea of the Berserk community getting together and doing a Secret Santa. Something about that just makes me over the moon happy!  :ubik:

It would be totally cool to have you on board this year's Schnoz! Lets hear from other members and see what the poll shows.

Same here, the wait is killing me! Also, just a general note to everybody, nobody is obligated to wait till the 25th to open their present if they don't celebrate Christmas or if you're not religious and just want some sweet presents. I don't know if I ever made it explicitly clear in the first post or subsequently, but the 25th is just the final deadline. That is, unless your Schnoz wants you to wait, because torturing your friends and loved ones is what the holidays are all about. :griffnotevil:

Oh no! :sad: Sorry to hear that, Branded... I hope that whatever it is, the glass is just a covering that can be easily replaced.

I'm so glad that you like it!! I hope the broken glass didn't hurt it too much -- if you need to clean up an unintended nick or two here, just use some black india ink! (Or even a black Sharpie will do the trick) It looks like it fared pretty well, regardless of silly me packing it with a glass frame....  :void:
I'm so happy to see it with a fellow Berserk fan, I couldn't ask for more!  :guts:

I will update later today when I open up mine! I got it in the mail yesterday!  :ubik:

My present was AMAZING!! Dar Klink commissioned THIS badass work of art for me:

It's the main character from my webcomic drawn as Tetsuo from Akira!

Linky also sent me a t-shirt with the "GOOD FOR HEALTH BAD FOR EDUCATION" pill design from the back of Kaneda's jacket.

This is seriously one of the best gifts ever. Thank you so much Link!!!

It was so much fun participating in this.  :serpico:

A HnK blind box bust, a Link Amiibo, and volumes of Berserk I hadn't had a chance to buy, which catch me up to date with the series!

Thanks a bunch pal! I'll be getting the new Smash in the near future so I'll be able to utilize that Link Amiibo, which is really nice as a figure just on its own, as is the HnK one! It's great to be up to date again on Berserk's volume release as well!

I hope we can all do this again next year! Merry Christmas!

Thanks Johnstantine, I'm so glad that you like your presents! :ubik: I have to say that I was relieved that you didn't already have Gigantomakhia, cause regifting a volume of manga in Japanese might be tricky. And it looks like everyone else's presents arrived on time and in good condition! I'm especially relieved about that. :ganishka:

They all look good! :isidro: Is there any way that non-US residents can participate?
Absolutely! There has never actually been any sort of restriction against residents of countries outside of the US, so anyone is welcome to join as long as they have at least 50 posts.

Yep yep, definitely! We kinda also took that into consideration when we set the $15 minimum price to spend on a present ^_^ because shipping went up early/mid 2012 and it's expensive now (for instance - I send CD's every now n then and while the cost of the CD might be $5-7, shipping to Europe is min $12.75!).

So glad everyone got their presents on time and safe, so so cool!

Opened my present today, I got Johnstantine! Thanks man! This's pretty cool, I remember hearing about this series from a friend and this's even hard bound - NICE!

You could always email jeff@amazon.com about this, including relevant information about each order. That would probably guarantee that such a thing does not happen again. Would likely ruin a few people's day as well.

WHOAAA!! TWIN PEAKS BUTTONS AND A DECAL!! THANK YOU!! I've been absolutely obsessed with Twin Peaks lately. I'm late to the party as always but only this year have I discovered the genius that is David Lynch.

I got volume 33 of Berserk: one more closer to finishing my collection!! Only 8 more to go!

I'm so glad you like them and had fun opening them.  :guts: I had a blast making the wrapping paper and putting your gift together.


I woke up this morning excited to find out what was in the box I had received, when what to my wondering eyes did appear but a treasure trove of awesome from my secret Schnoz!  :ubik: I am bowled over by your generosity. I love everything you sent me, especially that sweet beherit necklace and miniature Dragon Slayer set. So freaking cool!!! Thank you SO much, IncantatioN!!!  :guts:

Here are some pics of my presents:

Jackolyn, I'm so glad you're enjoying your gifts!! I ended up having to put that frame in the mail a little too soon after putting the wood lacquer on, so I hope it didn't stick to the wrapping paper.

How'd you make it?
I made a stamp by carving a piece of linoleum. I had to do it twice because the first time I got a little overzealous with my carving tool and cut off one of the little pointed prongy things on the top of the brand as well as messing up the border. But I just couldn't give up on the Berserk wrapping paper! :puck: The second time I took it slower and was more patient and things went much better. (Go figure, right?)

I also had another present come from my Schnoz yesterday. It hadn't made it into the original box, so he mailed it to me separately.
(http://i.imgur.com/HJWiAfG.jpg)
It's an adorable Japanese cloth print of cats. I hung it up on my wall and it looks really cute!  :guts: You were much too generous to me, IncantatioN! Thank you so much once again!!!

Wow! Well, thanks very much, y'all. I remembered making stamps in art class when I was in high school, so that gave me the confidence to give it a go. It's really not too difficult, especially when you're working on a fairly simple design. The linoleum is cool because you can draw a picture in pencil on paper and then put it over the linoleum and rub and it'll transfer. Then it's just a matter of carving out around the design. It was a fun project!

Well damn guys, I just opened my package after picking it up from the post office, and this ones'a doozy! Thank you so much, Jackolyn!!

The lady at the post office handed me my parcel (which was enormous) and when I rushed home to open it, this was what was inside:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/VoidArt_zpsskgklfnn.png)

 :void: :void: :void:

It's a large picture. I didn't get out any measuring tape, but by my estimation it's around 30 inches long. And sadly, I don't think the photo really captures the texture of the piece -- the black is velvety and richly colored, and the white lovingly (eerily?) captures all of the little details of Void's design. If I were at, say, an anime convention and saw something like this being sold, I would not be sure if I could afford something that clearly had been made with so much attention to detail. Maybe I'll take some detail shots later!

So with that said, thank you very very much Jackolyn for your wonderful gift! I'm buying a frame for this guy ASAP!

Oh, and my mom's cat loves the packaging, by the way.

I'm so happy you like it! Sorry it arrived late, I sent it off on the 15th and had my fingers crossed but alas twas the season!  :void:

It's actually airbrushed on black suede illustration board, with a bit of white conte' and black charcoal for some drawing details to tighten it up. I've fallen in LOVE with that board, it's perfect for airbrushing on, and very forgiving!
It took me only around 3 hours or so to put together, but I sure was sad to send it off! I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

Please do post a picture once you have it framed! I would love to see it!

I got Dar Klink! Dude, thanks SO MUCH for sharing something you love with me. Super stoked to check them both out especially coming recommended by you and worry not, I haven't read either of them :guts:

Glad you got yours in time JMP and that you're enjoying it :serpico:. I like what you did with that cat~print~cloth~thingie ^_^. I was clumsy and forgot to put it in with everything else.

Huge Thank You to everyone who partook in the Secret Schnoz of '15 and making it yet another success, you guys are awesome. Like every year, it wouldn't be possible without the help of the wonderful Grail.

No worries at all! These things do happen because of the postal system being overwhelmed during the holidays. In any case, it was certainly worth the wait!

Will do (I'll probably edit this post). And thanks for posting a better quality image. It's hanging next to my bed, so I see Void every night before going to sleep. :griffnotevil:

Great to see some new faces participating this year! :guts: I think you guys will be in for a treat, if previous years have been any indication!

Don't forget to PM me and/or Incantation with the following info if you haven't already:

Quote
1. The address you'd like to have your gift delivered to (this info will only be seen by me, Incantation and your Secret Schnoz). You can also provide something in place of an address (Steam ID, email, etc) if you'd prefer a digital gift and/or want to keep your address private.
2. A list of at least 3 gift preferences. Don't leave your Secret Schnoz in the dark! :griffnotevil: Just don't ask for anything like a new laptop, ya goof.

Also, another reminder to all who have expressed interest in participating, be sure to provide your physical address / email address / Steam ID, etc, as well as at least 3 gift preferences to myself or Incantation by Nov 15th. I'm not chasing you all down! :ganishka:

That said, we're close to surpassing last year's number of participants! That means that each and every year that Secret Schnoz has been a thing, we've had more and more folks join in. Thank you all for making it such a special event!

It has indeed begun! And what a surprise I got this evening when I came back from work! My Secret Schnoz was XionHorsey, and they got me an AWESOME variety pack of vegan "beef" jerky! I have to say, this was a truly fantastic surprise, because I did love regular old beef jerky back when I used to eat meat. I tried the mesquite flavor, and can't wait to try the rest! :beast:

I opened the box to find not the stuff I was expecting, but my Schnoz presents inside! What a cool surprise! :guts: I felt like a kid at Christmas again.

(http://www.gobolatula.com/jmp.png)
JMP you are so incredibly beyond kind. I really have been spoiled!  :serpico:

First off, Japan is one of the Miura works that I haven't read yet and I'm so happy that I finally own it! I'm going to enjoy the hell out of this; I just know it!

Kubo is an amazing work of animation. I am so glad I got to see it on the big screen and I'm double-glad that I now own my own copy. To those who haven't seen this movie, please give it a shot. Also watch all the other Laika movies.

The Labyrinth 30th anniversary blu-ray looks amazing. What a great package and I'm looking forward to seeing all the special features! This one I consider to be a gift for both me AND Grail so an extra extra thank you for that, JMP!

Last but not least, you got me hot sauce! And this stuff looks like the real deal, which is awesome. The warning on the side of the box actually advises people not to fucking buy it because it's so intense, hahaha!

JMP you are an absolute class act. Thank you so much for your generosity. May you, your family, and your friends all have the merriest of holidays. You kick so much ass.

P.S. That bag is so cool. I am seriously impressed by that brand stamp!  :guts:

...maybe a bit in some chili or soup. Sounds like it's more of a food additive than a sauce you would put directly on something. I was looking out of curiosity at different Scoville levels and apparently it's got a higher rating than what's in some pepper sprays.  :ganishka: Use with caution indeed!

A few points, if I may:

1. You two are the coolest person on earth. Every video you make is pure gold.

2. How long did it take before your mouth returned to normal? Did it fuck up your tongue/tastebuds like cinnamon candies tend to do if you eat too many at once?

3. Croquettes are amazing. Fantastic choice for the delivery vehicle.

4. I have the weirdest boner right now.

It took probably a good half-hour for my mouth to return back to normal. As for my stomach, that's another story. For hours I had the craziest stomach pains. Not your usual stomach ache; it felt like a jagged, heavy rock was sitting in there. I can't wait to try more! :D

4. I have the weirdest boner right now.
So do I. It's shaped like a clown. I've had it for months and I don't know how to get rid of it.

Same here - when I saw Gobs DUMPING on that sauce, I couldn't help but think, "He's going to regret this later..." :magni:

That said, he handled it better than I expected, because that sauce is really no joke. If what I've read is accurate, the number of Scoville units in that sauce is equal to the number found in ghost peppers, which I understand until recently were the spiciest peppers in the world. :isidro:

Guess what, guys! It's that time of year again! Secret Schnoz 2017 is about to get underway, so as usual, please PM Incancation and/or myself with the following info if you'd like to participate in SK.net's very own Secret Santa game:

1. The address you'd like to have your gift mailed to.
2. If you want to leave the option open for a potential digital gift, or are not comfortable giving out a physical address, provide a Steam ID or email.
3. Please provide 3 gift preferences. These preferences can be anything from t-shirts to Berserk-themed merch, to games and movies!

Don't forget to refer to the first post of this thread with rules and other important info. (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14100.msg224533#msg224533)

Since this year is a big one for us, Incantation and I have a special extra gift planned for all of our friends! This year we'll be mailing out a free 5th anniversary Secret Schnoz postcards to anyone and everyone who requests them. You don't have to participate in Secret Schnoz to receive a postcard, so please feel free to PM me here or elsewhere with your preferred address, and I will send it in the next couple of months.

Excited for another year of gift-giving and fun with you guys! Please stay tuned for an updated Schnoz banner, in the meantime. :slan:

A pleasure as always, Rhomby! Thanks to those of you who have sent in PMs with your addresses and gift preferences for this year. I'll be sending out a reminder in a few days.

And I should also mention that this year's banner is up. Sorry for the delay, I have been under the weather (another staple of the season). :judo: Anyways, enjoy! The banner is on display on the front page, and the banners from previous years have been freed from the curse of Photobucket. Hurray!

Quick reminder to everyone participating to -

Hey guys, excited for the gift-giving goodness this year, as always. :guts: As a special bonus, I created a 5th anniversary postcard to share with everyone, regardless of whether they're participating in Secret Schnoz or not (Please PM me your address if you'd like one). See a sneak preview of the card here:

Of course, those who already sent their addresses to Incantation and I will receive a postcard automatically. The cards have been sent out to print, so look out for your cards in December sometime! :ubik:

Thank you so much!!! :guts: I'm super happy to get this, a whole year of Star Wars goodness! :ubik:

Not sure who my Schnozer was. There was a nice gift message, but it didn't say who it was from. Anyway, thank you again, whoever you may be and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
