A little History on Santa Charr:
Last year or the year before that Evga.2471 decided to make his Charr look like a reindeer with the Stage Helm. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Stag_Helm_Skin Since then he kept messing with the color scheme until he had it just right. Then one day going about in Lions Arch someone gave Evga.2471 the idea of Santa Charr since then it stuck. That brings us to last year when Evga.2471 got the idea to do something for the Guild Wars 2 community. So he made a thread last year in November Originally called "Santa Charr Thread". Then a little mishap happened on the Guild Wars 2 Forums and got relabeled as "The Santa Charr Thread". In that thread Santa Charr said leave a comment that is Naughty or Nice and you'll get put on the Naughty or Nice List. Everyone that commented on that thread got something from Santa Charr. Evga.2471 knows some of those people did not get anything form Santa Charr do to the mishap but he digresses. Anyway later on in that thread, Evga.2471 decided to let people get there picture taken with Santa Charr. That didn't go as well as people leaving a comment on the thread. Over all the whole thing went very well and it was a lot of fun and hard work to get everyone there gifts form Santa Charr on time.

Evga.2471 has some words he'll like to say. Take it away Evga.2471,
Thank you announcer guy.
Hi everyone. I hope you all will have a Great Holiday season and be safe out there were ever you go. I hope you'll all have fun this year with Santa Charr.
Just to let everyone know I'll be very busy working the whole month of December. I will have very little time to play Guild Wars 2. What do you do for a profession you ask? I'm a professional driver (Truck driver, AKA 18 wheeler). I'm on a dedicated account and I'm home almost every day but that's to do a ten hour break then it's right back to work. With the Holiday season coming about I will not be home most days. With that being said most of you will have to wait to receive presents but I promise you, you'll get presents. I hope you all enjoy your holiday season and I'll see you all next year for the Santa Charr Thread.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this thread and comment. Thanks again from Evga.2471, Also Know As (AKA) Krosan Beast, AKA Santa Charr.

P.S. I will know who will get presents because I'll write down every name and check it off one by one.
Disclaimer: This is to cover myself in giving presents out. Please do not get offended by this. Also no announcer guy's were harmed in the making of this thread.

Stay awhile and listen.

    Santa Charr - the only good Charr!

    Actually, I have been pretty good all year, I haven,t killed one Charr at all! That counts as nice...right..?

    Seriously though, lovely gesture as it was and continues to be, dont burn yourself out on it with RL commitments on top. Prob worth hiring some grawl-elves to help you!

    Necros need a nerf.

    Is that naughty enough? Do I get a legendary now?

    Also for the record it feels weird to use the word "naughty"

    Also, joking aside you're taking on a fair bit, eh? Great thought though.

    When I was ten I would create Lego crippling traps in the living room to down Santa Claus. I would be hiding behind my mother's rocking chair, and when the battle was initiated I would attack with plastic lightsabers.
    That is also the story of how I learned the truth about Santa Claus. Mom was very, very unhappy.

    I also burn Skritt alive on a near-daily basis.

    You should add a picture of Santa Charr to this thread! :)

    This is the first time I heard of Santa Charr, I always was under the impression charrs are evil creatures trying to provoke climate change with all their oil driven machinery but Santa Charr sounds nice, do I leave you apples instead of cookies and milk or what does Santa Charr like? :)

  • Santa Charr's not real they say. He doesn't exist they say. He's just a made up story to keep the children happy they say! WELL I SAW HIM! I REALLY SAW HIM! HE DOES EXIST! I mean, he wasn't handing out presents and cheer or anything, just standing around the Lion's Arch bank soliciting for some forum. But hey, he was there, existing! Antlers and everything!

    Merry Charrmas everyone!

    For some reason my little helper is a creepy thing... I'm going to have to ask him to stop watching people sleep. I'm mean he does have black eye's and sharp teeth to boot.

    Indeed Santa Charr is real, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    You got a Guild Hall congrats. Well lets just hope you've been extra good this year.

    You know I totally forgot to say Thank You everyone for commenting on my thread. Plus it looks like I'm not go to get as many as I did last year but I won't know until the cut off date for this thread.

    It is stuff like this that makes the Guild Wars 2 community so great.

    Dear Santa Charr,

    Your tribune smells like a stinky poo.

    naughty enough? now get me my precursor.

  • I've been very nice this year. I finally stopped trying to ride the centaurs after going to the desert. Raptors are much easier to control. But I don't like the scales. So scratchy. Or the teeth. Ouch.
    Might pay a visit to Shaemoor for old times' sake. But I'll continue being nice, I promise. Just visiting old neighbors for the holidays...

  • Xykris.6758Xykris.6758 Member ✭✭

    I must admit this is an awesome idea! :D
    This will be my first wintersday back in guild wars since about 2012 so I'm quite excited!
    Also, as mentioned in a previous comment, you should totally put up a picture of Santa Charr! :D

  • Butch.4957Butch.4957 Member ✭✭

    I love to slice my enemies up slowly, rub poison into their bleeding wounds, then burn them closed (in game of course). Slow agonizing deaths make my character so happy. It brings a smile to her face!

  • Dear Santa Charr, I wish for nothing but for you and everyone else to have a super Charrmass! From all the Pyrewolves to all of you out there, stay awesome!

  • Blutengel.7089Blutengel.7089 Member ✭✭

  • My first time back to this game in years, realized how much I missed it. One of the best gaming communities I've come across in a long time, especially with people that do stuff like this. Happy holidays to all.

    Hello Santa,

    way up north for a Charr isn't it?!
    Reindeers and stuff, that's mostly our territory, didn't know Charrs could stand the chilly weather up here. =)

    Well, I started off nice this year, just a couple of friendly muggings, nothing 'serial' you know. But to be honest, I'm done being nice. It bores me to death. Ok, I might visit the orphanage sometimes and drop a few things I gathered from around the world, but that's it.
    As a Norn I don't like the desert very much, so with the beginning of the second half of the year, yeah, that maybe changed it. That changed me. And I — definetly — needed a change, indeed.

    I kill people for a living.
    Preferably from the distance with my sniper rifle. Silent, but it makes a lovely >>SPLASH<< when the high velocity bullet exits the skull — sometimes if I'm lucky, it has enough speed to pierce through another bloke behind them, ouh my deer, that always makes my giggle. ^^
    Yeah, it's mostly bad guys, but you know... so I suppose you COULD call this nice though... but then... nah, I go for naughty girl!
    Because sometimes, I do need to get into the shadows and slice my way trough my target with them daggers. I crave the slice and the sound of the bloody well, when the warm stream of life flows out and the dripping echoes from the cold dungeon walls. Oh, and the smell of fresh red... don't get me started on that.

    Ok Santa, or whatever you call yourself. I need to be honest with you, I don't believe in some sentient being, dressed in ridiculously coloured fur. Bloody red is the only other colour I accept, next to natural. I live in the wild and the only higher beings I believe in, are the spirits of the wild.
    But, my deer... a naughty girls likes a present from time to time! ;)

    See you on Wintersday & don't catch a cold boy,
    Line Kjællborg <3

  • Poppy.6709Poppy.6709 Member

    Awesome idea for the community. Tyria needs more Charrs like you.

    Merry Charrmas.

  • Santa Charr,

    I've run into at least one other Santa, and he was a Norn. Honestly I'm not entirely convinced you exist. But! I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. All I got from the other Santa was a little wintersday present. Maybe you could hook me up with something a little better? ;) I've tried to be good! I've only messed up once. A day.

    Anyway, thanks in advance!
