The Challenge: Fa, la, la, la, la… la, la, la, la.

In celebration of this holiday season, take your favorite holiday song and change the words to better fit your favorite SOE Game. Members of the SOE Community Team will select the best one and sing it during the holiday Podcast which will go live on December 18th, 2011.

Sample Carol: EverQuest community member Yaddab, who plays Reviak on the Firiona Vie server wrote this carol last year and it was sung during Podcast 100!

    Look Out Behind You, Honk if You Eat Gnomes
    Ding, Hiding Catnip From Vah Shir , Stringing Bows
    Ruining My Own Lands, Filling Halfings With Pie
    Looking For Graphics, My pet just did WHAT?


    Dusting Off Spellbooks and Sharpening Claws
    DING! Oiling Clockworks, Grrr. Bark. Bark. Bark Grrr.
    Just Doing Something You Don't Wanna Know About
    Now Spawning Fippy_Darkpaw, Teaching snakes to kick...


    If You Squeeze those Dark Elves You Do not Get Whine
    Don't Panic, What elephant?, and Look out behind
    Swimming in lava isn't good for your skin
    Fitting houses into backpacks, and Bristlebane was Here
