Advent-ure
Calendar 2017







Welcome, welcome,
nice to see you found your way to this year’s “Xmas Advent-ure Calendar Forum”, where riddles, lost reindeers, entertainment and prizes await!

Check back every day in December to crack the puzzle of the day and get a chance to win an exciting reward by doing so. On Saturday and Sunday bigger loot awaits, so you only get one task over those two days.

And because December can be a busy month with visiting friends and family, going to dinners and parties and organising presents, we’ll give you until 14:00 game time on Tuesday, the 2nd of January, to submit your final answers. Please post only once per account, double entries will be ignored. The winners will be published in the forums and will also receive an inbox message from us, once the competition is over.

Now jump on it and discover where this Advent(ure) leads you this festive season:

1st December

2nd & 3rd December

4th December

5th December

6th December

7th December

8th December

9th & 10th December

11th December

12th December

13th December

14th December

15th December

16th & 17th December

18th December

19th December

20th December

21st December


All our daily riddles and competitions are in accordance with our
Competition Terms and Conditions
.

Also, feel free to use this thread to wish all of your fellow ‘Scapers a lovely Christmas and discuss your skilling plans for the upcoming month!

To a lovely December,

Your RuneScape Team

(and Mod Purpur, who usually takes care of German RuneScape business, but decided to come and spread the festive spirit in the English forums too *waves*)

Hi all *waves*

So many posts already, that's fantastic!

Thanks a lot for your feedback on the image uploading being an issue - I shall include a link to a guide a helpful player made in the posts that require images to be uploaded.
Also big thanks to all the players who already kindly responded to their peers - great to see you all working together in the festive season ^_^

Huge sorry to everyone for not releasing the riddle of the day yesterday <3

I had the day off and I don't have access to the forums from home - I'll do my best to ensure all other days go out as planned once again!

Hope you all enjoy the double puzzle fun today ^_^

Also you have until early January to complete the puzzles, so don't fret about the time and enjoy the festive period.

Thank you Mod Purpur this is amazing! It's very generous of you that everyone who participates will get a free bond!

It's almost like too good to be true, but I read the thread over and over again, and it says everyone will get bond! The person will receive. You will receive. Wooot!

Cheers!


Hey Jokku23,

thank you for your post. I'm really sorry I made it sound like everyone would receive the price, as with the first weekend and all other competitions of the advent calendar, one of the many contributions gets chosen and receives the prize (plus their nominated person)
I did not anticipate that kind of interpretation and have changed the wording accordingly.

Here's the new paragraph:
The person you nominated
will receive todays prize of
28 keys and 200 RuneCoins
if you get selected as the winner.

And because no good deed goes unpunished, you will receive
1 Bond
for your kindness,
should you be chosen!

I knew it was too good to be true :(


Sorry again <3

I wish I could, but like Werewolf said, I'd probably break the game economy by being too generous.
Good luck with the competitions though, I hope you win something nice ^_^

So today is my last day at work for this year and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you here for the many posts and the eagerness with which you threw yourselves at the riddles – made me really happy and especially your thoughtful gift ideas for the NPCs and the lovely nominations on the weekend posts. (And don't worry, Mod Shauny was kind enough to promise he'll unhide the last calendar day tomorrow for all of you - shoutout to him for taking care of the community all year around!)

I wish you all a lovely festive time, no matter whether you celebrate Christmas or just enjoy a few free days. I hope most of you get to spend time with people you love – and if you don't, I hope you know there's people caring about you and thinking of you and that you matter as well <3

I don't often find my way into the English forums, but you can say hi on Twitter anytime if you don't mind the occasional German tweet: @JagexPurpur ^_^

Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihnachten! Joyeux Noël! Feliz Navidad! Prettige Kerstdagen! Hyvää joulua... and now I'm running out of languages I can say Merry Christmas in, please add them to the thread!

What is happening in the picture? What could Amascut

Brassica Prime possibly say to each other?


Thanks, that made me giggle! :D


Whoops, that's what you get for switching between German and English all day at work :D

Werewolf said:
only 4 left :(

Can you scrap the prizes and do this for fun all year please :P


Awww, glad to hear it's fun ^_^

I wish I could, but it's quite time consuming and someone's gotta translate all those punny dialogues and mighty long texts in the game for the German audience to enjoy and I can't just leave the rest of my team to do all the work alone. But I'm sure the lovely CM team will continue to do a lot of cool stuff for you all in the next year. And who knows, maybe I get to come up with some riddles and tasks again in the future ;)

I would just like to say I am in love with the 22nd's Puzzle!!!

I would love to have it as a wallpaper! Can someone please make the image a wallpaper!


I don't want to spoiler the image for everyone but I can talk to the Creative Team and check if I can post the whole picture in the new year, if it's not out there already somewhere. I'm sure they'll love to hear your feedback :)

Better late than never!

I remembered someone asking back then whether they could get a proper big version of the image used in the final Jigsaw puzzle - sorry it took so long to get back to you, I was chasing up whether I could post it here ^_^

I saw it today on our ArtStation page, so there you go:
