[03:44] mohawk what's your favorite present
[03:48] that's when it is yeah okay when
[03:52] what's your favorite present ah my
[03:54] favorite has got to be the new Christmas
[03:58] res that we're bringing out and there
[04:00] were little cute plushies and you get to
[04:02] cuddle over and over and it's so a
[04:04] Darwin can love them you want keep very
[04:10] carefully avoided saying a rude word
[04:11] there very carefully yeah like I've done
[04:16] this before yes and with that I think
[04:20] when we're off the event can look quite
[04:21] quickly before you get more excited
[04:23] about your plus she's just Christmas I'm
[04:26] crazy ladies are amazing and so mother
[04:30] ayan yes I had someone of your first
[04:33] projects yeah gonna talk about now
[04:35] diving in at the deep end
[04:37] being allowed quite a lot of
[04:39] responsibility on the Christmas quest
[04:41] that was interesting to say the least so
[04:44] what's the Christmas quest called okay
[04:46] so it's called the pinch who stole
[04:48] Christmas roughly if you're familiar
[04:51] with a bit of dr. sayers then you will
[04:53] know what that refers to and we do
[04:57] indeed a nice big bad guy who you won't
[04:59] meet in the first episode and who is
[05:02] responsible for sending his little army
[05:05] of penguins out causing mischief across
[05:08] given or naughty penguins absolutely and
[05:11] where do you start the quest okay so you
[05:15] will see for holiday pumpkins on your
[05:18] map in various places and three of the
[05:21] cities that's proof dienes birth or and
[05:23] Lumbridge all have snow imps which you
[05:26] can talk to right there stood proudly on
[05:29] some Christmasy pedestals easily
[05:32] noticeable right next to the lodestones
[05:34] okay and they will direct you to the
[05:38] iceberg which is where the 4th holiday
[05:39] icon is located the iceberg is
[05:43] mysteriously floating off the coast of
[05:46] demon home okay and the snow imps know
[05:48] nothing about it and why is covered in
[05:51] presence so it's your job to figure out
[05:53] that mystery figure out that mystery
[05:55] digging through presents on the way and
[05:57] see what you didn't find yes are there
[06:00] any requirements for the quest we have
[06:02] no requirements every player can
[06:06] complete the quest complete the episodes
[06:09] individually and gain the rewards from
[06:11] doing so we have added in extra little
[06:15] easter eggs if you have specific
[06:18] requirements and one of those i can
[06:21] mention is if you're summoning skill is
[06:23] above level 40 yep you can understand
[06:25] the speech of the penguins oh nice if
[06:28] not they will score cat you and squawk
[06:32] at you you will have question marks
[06:34] above your head and your snow imp buddy
[06:36] you'll have to translate for you right
[06:38] okay very cute okay and I understand
[06:42] it's it's an episodic we've got many
[06:45] quests that's right and in order to
[06:47] spread the
[06:49] the content across the month as well as
[06:51] build up the hype for Christmas yen this
[06:53] goes hand in hand with the advent
[06:55] calendar it's almost like a countdown
[06:56] and you get to unlock items every day
[06:59] just as you get to unlock new parts of
[07:01] the story every week with the quest
[07:04] there are four episodes and the last
[07:07] episode will be unlocked on the 21st of
[07:10] december four days before Christmas Day
[07:12] itself and I should give you enough time
[07:15] to play it because we're keeping the
[07:17] quest until early January as well
[07:20] breaking so i understand some of the
[07:23] names of the the episode egg on them
[07:26] particularly well with 30 well players
[07:28] yes they are appropriately runescape e
[07:30] puns it does have to be said absolutely
[07:33] and you're at least partially
[07:35] responsible for these yes and so it's
[07:38] quite a coincidence that we're here with
[07:40] more bond at the moment we based the
[07:44] four episode names on some very good
[07:46] James Bond movies at least in my opinion
[07:49] the house feels like people will manage
[07:51] to disagree and yeah I can reveal those
[07:53] quite happily episode one is called for
[07:55] your eyes only yeah episode two is live
[07:59] and let slide which is very much related
[08:01] to the activity in which you will be
[08:03] doing it is what is my favorite of the
[08:05] little I'm glad episode 4 is licensed to
[08:08] chill because that involves somebody who
[08:10] needs to chill and you need to chill him
[08:13] out and episode 4 is a name I didn't
[08:16] come up with but it's my favorite and
[08:18] that's quantum of solace could sell
[08:20] Frank my biscuits for the mod been my
[08:23] biscuit Melbourne and I understand that
[08:25] we have mod bond who is in the room
[08:27] ready to thank for the music type of
[08:29] Snow Patrol absolutely yeah another
[08:32] little poem go in there I notice he's
[08:35] hanging his head in shame so work one of
[08:39] the one of the only comments that
[08:43] haven't been entirely positive about is
[08:44] how short the first quest feels for some
[08:46] people some people absolutely longer now
[08:48] most people have expressed that they
[08:51] thoroughly enjoyed the episode they
[08:54] enjoy the christmas event so far one of
[08:56] the caveats we're releasing episodic
[08:59] content is that obviously your limb
[09:01] did to the first episode at the first
[09:03] week yes now what we tried to do and
[09:06] bearing in mind this is only about
[09:08] one-fifth of the content episode three
[09:12] and four are probably double the amount
[09:16] of content than episode 1 and 2 so we're
[09:18] raising you into it so it's a gradual
[09:21] build-up for the hype same with the
[09:22] advent of the whole month we're trying
[09:24] to make a big special thing you could
[09:26] say it's no balls oh well played mother
[09:31] Ryan thank you yeah so episode 3 is my
[09:36] favorite so far and so I'm highly
[09:38] excited for people to get to that stage
[09:41] okay mod Meili who's the Christmas
[09:44] curator yes she's done a fantastic job
[09:47] on all of the storyline the dialogue is
[09:50] hilarious yep in my humble opinion and I
[09:53] think it all comes together very well at
[09:55] the end I think a lot of players will
[09:56] enjoy it and at that point they will
[09:58] have many many skill up opportunities on
[10:02] the island for a good six weeks in total
[10:04] cool some pure speed a bit worried about
[10:07] to fence XP absolutely yes I've seen
[10:10] this and I have nothing to worry about i
[10:12] can assure you okay every part of the
[10:15] activities that you would normally gain
[10:18] experience for when completing the quest
[10:21] do not reward you any experience and
[10:26] once you've completed the quest itself
[10:28] you can gain experience that is part of
[10:30] the reward yet for completing that
[10:32] episode not only that is you will notice
[10:35] that in the first week we do cooking and
[10:37] tasting for a christmas feast yeah the
[10:40] tasting gives defense experience it will
[10:42] warn you we do take that some players
[10:45] like to remain pure getting in tons of
[10:48] defense in mind that's okay okay so we
[10:52] did think about that that's always nice
[10:53] neck and so now we're going to flip back
[10:55] to mod mohawk and winter weekends so
