Secret Shoggoth III

Recommended Posts

CAThompson

It’s time for the Secret Shoggoth again. That special time of year when we trade tribaubles to grow as a community, last year went more or less well and I think this year will be just as good and likely better.

Without further ado: Yog-Sothoth.com Secret Shoggoth III.

 

Here’s how it works:

You send me a private message that includes:

Your name

Your address

Where you would be willing to ship a gift be it anywhere, the UK or just within your own country etc. There are plenty of Yoggies around, so if you don’t want to send something over any oceans or can’t afford it, that’s fine we always have had more people willing to ship anywhere than we need so don’t worry about it.

 

Then, buy a gift, the price ought to be $20-25 or so. If you want to wait to see who you get then that’s fine but the closer to December we get the worse the shipping time becomes.

On Nov let’s say 25, I’ll assign you someone to gift and send you their address.

Also, on the 25th at some point to be announced closer I’ll need some people and the chatroom so we can roll to see who gets who, think of it as rolling on the treasure table from the old DMG.

As soon as you get your assigned shoggee, send them a gift, the gift should arrive by Dec 15th.

If for some reason something goes wrong let me know. Immediately, maybe sooner.

Rules: Yes, you all know these but check them anyway, there might be a test.

1. Gifts ought to cost around $20-25 USD. The price of some monographs, others cost more or less.

2. The $20-25 is before shipping, so as cool as it is to send a life sized bronze Star Spawn statue, you might want to look for something lighter.

3. The gifts ought to arrive by Dec 15. If there is a problem with this, let me know.

3a. If you can get a shipping number, that’s cool. You don’t have to but it will make any kind of trouble more avoidable. Also, you don’t have to but when you get your package, it’d be nice of you to note it here so your shoggoth knows that everything arrived.

4. If for some reason the gift won’t arrive or something goes wrong. Contact me immediately.

5. You must have been a member of Yog before I posted this. Ahem: You must have been a member of Yog before October 25th, okay, October 24th in most of your time zones so Manilianus can take part but no one who joined after them.

 

You guys are better than this but let’s just put it out there.

6. Keep it clean and legal, no shipping booze to kids, guns to Britain or lock picks to Canada. Or midget-shoggoth porn to anyone.

7. For the love of Cthulhu, contact me if something goes wrong. Again, the sooner I hear from someone the sooner I can fix things.

8. There’s precious little anyone can do to you if you don’t send a gift. But we’re Yoggies and above that kind of thing.

 

Thoughts:

Let’s assume that everyone already has their copies of Uttati Asfet and the Bermuda Triangle.

You might want to send your real name along unless you want a package showing up for some dude named Ten_Inch_Psudopod.

You may want to post a quick idea roll about what you want but you have no promises as to what you’ll get. You may also want to post about what you have, if say you already own every monograph, then you’d want to mention that so you don’t get another copy of The Abby to adorn your Dark Ages shelf with.

Also, the gifts don’t have to have anything to do with Cthulhu, I understand many people love tea and Doctor Who, though you might want to look into things your shogee likes.

Those of us who live in far flung and fantastic locations may find it extra good to post a short list of electronic things we lust after , theChaosium eBook explosion and DrivethroughRPG both will be happy to get an ecopy of a book to Antarctica much faster than the standard messenger albino penguin.

We’ve had quite a few people go above and beyond, sending gifts to other Yoggies, friends, people they worked on a project with or just to Paul because he makes this all possible. So in your PM to me please let me know if I can share your address with others who wish to send you a gift. Or don’t and I’ll just ask you if it comes up.

I'm down too, hopefully we'll have a "Dear Secret Shoggie" thread like last year where you can address your secret shoggoth and give hints as to what you want. Last year I put that I had all the CoC books I would need so just something scray would be fine and I got a great horror novel and DVD... :D

I am in as well. Haven't missed one yet and now I wonder if I can top last year's gift without breaking the bank, err gift limit. PM on its way.

I'm in!

 

I think I'd really be most interested in receiving Lovecraftian music (I own no Darkest of Hillside Thickets or Musica Cthulhiana or anything like that). I'd also love to get a small bust of Cthulhu, Nyarly, or the King in Yellow to sit atop my desk. Other than that, anything cool, unusual, fun, interesting, etc. is greatly appreciated!

Yes, send me your address, I have the old address files somewhere but it's easier if everyone sends in their info.

I'd love to participate in the fun this year, having missed it the last couple of years. Looking forward to the Lovecraftian gift-exchange-madness!
