Snowy streets! Dead fir trees! Backstabs and crockets! Ahhhh yes, it smells just like another beautiful Smissmas. But wait, what is this rancid, putrid, hippie-like smell that poisons Old Nick's nostrils? Ah, I see: it's the distinct smell of a human lacking any sort of ammunition, explosive or weapon! But worry not, dear compatriots, for the plague of gunpowderlessness will not ruin this sacred time of the year once more! Behold… the Hatvent Calendar!
For 25 days, once a day, a series of completely out-of-the-blue raffles will conquer the badlands to ensure every good little mercenary gets what they deserve: the ability to kill other mercenaries. And, even more importantly, doing it in style!
Ready up your unwrapping fingers to open your yearly treat! Or your brainless cranium to be blown away by the devilishly stylish winners if you don't manage to win anything at all… Regardless, best of luck, for there will be gifts to spare, blood to drip and guts to shoot in this amazing display of selflessness (and perhaps negligence) from the mod team, with a secret and equally amazing extra gift on the 25th day!
Good luck and godspeed, mercs!
