Merry Christmas (Tree Explanation)

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas (or happy holidays) to every  Reign Of Blood player! I hope you've liked all the festive features and the extra turns and blood this week. I hope you don't eat and drink to much today! (Who am I kidding?)

Dead City Christmas Tree
At the start of the week the Dead City Christmas tree opened. There was no explanation of why and what the money was for, people were left guessing, feeling uneasy,  what were they throwing their money at. Did you take the plunge and donate something? To scared it was for nothing?

Well, was it for nothing? Yes and no. Christmas is supposed to be a time of giving, and I wanted to test the players of Reign Of Blood who was willing to give something for nothing on this festive occasion.

In order to test the givingness of our players, I am rewarding this with giving myself. The total money donated to the tree was: $389,460,749.

For every $2million that was donated to the tree, I would donate $1 to the Make A Wish foundation. Make-A-Wish Foundation aims to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses. £125 ($194) will be donated to their Christmas fund, to give some of them a bit better Christmas. What's going to happen to all that money? You'll see soon.

Promo code for everyone: xmas2011
Promo code for people who donated to the tree: xmastree2011

View the fundraising page and the money donated right here. Click here to view the list of all the players that donated to the tree.

All that said and done, hope you all have a great day!

P.S Don't get forget today's advent calendar.

Merry Christmas!

Holiday extravaganza week

Xmas feature #5
The final Christmas feature is a holiday themed quest! You can find the link to this quest at the Christmas area of the Dead City.

Christmas pack?
So many people have got their hands on one of the Christmas packs and unlocked the hat icon next to your name. For all those who have bought one (and to the ones who do during this week) you get +5 extra turns an hour, for the rest of the week!

More turns...
If you want more turns an hour for the rest of the week, there is another new Xmas goodie package which gives you extra +10 turns an hour for the rest of the week. What's even better, is 10% of the revenue from this pack will go into this months WWF charity pot.

And for everyone... +50% extra PvP battle blood!

All of the above will end on the 27th December (Just over a week, actually)

Have a great week,

Xmas features #4 & plasma special!

Profile update
All profiles now have 2 more variables for you to show off. Blood drained from battle today, and you're collected collectibles! They are displayed on both v1 and v2 of the profiles.

Xmas feature #4
Candy canes are back! You can collect sugar from battle and use it to turn into beautiful tasty candy canes, which give you a boost of energy to increase your stats! Because I'm such a nice guy, you all start off with a free candy cane.

VIP & Plasma special
After being asked several times when the special will be up, it's now up! All special packs now come with extra candy canes. There is also a new special pack that can add to your collectibles collection. For all vampires who have all 3 of these collectibles will get a special extra prize on Christmas day. The ultimate game card now come with candy canes too!

On the VIP & plasma gifting page, the special xmas packs are now available to gift to your loved ones on RoB. Christmas is all about giving, after all.

Wallie Replacement
Progress for a Wallie replacement is now well under way, after the amount of security checks this new company wanted to do, its now finally over, I've been sent some of the document to start setting up. I'll have to spend some time learning their API and getting it up and running, more on this soon.

1 more Christmas feature to come next week.

Xmas features #3 & new competition

Xmas feature #3
VampSant's gift shop! Everyone gets one free gift to start off, and there is currently only one way to get these gifts, more ways to get them will come soon.

November competition winners
Thanks for all the motto entries in last months competition, there were so many good ones, I chose 2 that I'm going to use for 2 different places. Keep your eye out to see which mottos won, the winners have been given their few plasma. Thanks to everyone for taking part.

December competition
Getting into the festive spirit this months competition requires a little bit of thinking. Last month many people based their mottos on popular Christmas quotes but with a RoB twist. And that's exactly what this months competition will be, except, you have to re-think any Christmas carol, but give it a RoB twist. Think you have what it takes? The top 3 win 10 Santa Gifts each. Post your songs here.

Have a good week, more to come.
