Default A Toast to Filbus! - Fungus Covered Scale Tunic Giveaway

I promised I would when certain conditions were met (and they have been), so I'm giving away another fungi tunic. Here's how the giveaway will work:

I don't play much. I log on for a few hours a week and tool around on one of my alts. The first person to hand me an alcoholic beverage, drink an alcoholic beverage of their own and /say, "A Toast to Filbus! The Filthiest Footed Halfling this side of Rivervale!" (spelling and capitalization must be the same or it doesn't count) will win the Fungus Covered Scale Tunic. Also, it must be in /say. It can't be in /tell, /shout, /ooc, etc.

When I am found, I will drink and respond with a toast of my own, which is known only to me (to prevent fraudsters).

Here's the trick: I won't tell you which alt I'm on or when I'm on. I'm pretty sure nobody knows the alt I currently play is mine, and I also tend to pop on at various times of day, so it will be fair for all. Make those macros, buy those ales and try to find me.

When the first person finds me and toasts proper, I'll meet them in EC with the fungi and pass it off. I'll snap a screenshot of the first encounter as well as the awarding of the prize and post them in this thread.

One hint I'll give is you'll never find me in East Commonlands (until it is time to give away the fungi), that zone sucks. So don't annoy the people there, unless you want to, but there's no fungi in it if you do. I'll give a new hint each week of my alt's identity until I am found.

Remember, I could be anybody, so be generous with the drink and toast with everyone Filbus's name!

Good luck!

P.S. This is legit, I gave away a fungi last summer. See the Fishing for a Fungus Covered Scale Tunic thread for my credentials.

I don't see how that is anything like what I'm doing Baler. Please don't equate my giveaway to a scam. I'm just trying to have fun and give away a fungi, like I did before.

Well, I'm sorry you feel that way. My intent wasn't to make it look like a scam, in fact the complete opposite. My specific rules were meant so that: 1) There could be only one winner, because, frankly, I don't want to give away two fungi tunics. And 2) A couple of people couldn't stage something that made it look like they found me when they haven't and start a ruckus about how I owe them a fungi.

But, if you don't like it, don't play along. I'm an honest guy and many honest people here would vouch for that.

What's convoluted? Give out beers to everyone, toast Filbus, and if it's me you get a fungi.

But I'm done arguing with you. It's my giveaway, I will run it how I want. If you think I'm scamming you, don't spend your silver on a short beer.

It's convoluted to make it a slightly more difficult win in comparison to last year's fishing contest. You rock, Ravager!
