NeoCodex Advent Calendar 2014

cGF15Aj.gif

 
Hi, my name is Keil "Pronounced-As-Kail-Not-Keel" Ressicks. How are you? Lovely.
 
In my blasphemous efforts to overthrow our past traditions, I am graciously honored to announce that the 2014 NeoCodex Advert Calendar will begin on the first day of December.
 
For those are new to this, we put the Neopet's Advent Calendar to shame with our own daily prize giveaway. Last year, people won anything from 100K pure Neopoints to a Sword of Reif to Paintbrushes to Custom-made Plushies to NC Items. Last year alone, we had a pool of 100m NP worth of awesome stuff for this event. *prerecorded audience applause* We'll follow a similar system as last year except with an addition of Flight Rising gifts.

 

Each day, one person is given a wonderful gift using a Random Number Generator (RNG) to determine the outcome.
 

The event is over.

Thank you for your participation. Until next time have a bright, shiny 2015!

I'll donate some neopets crap. I'll just have to go through and browse first, but for now I guess I'll do 5 Baby PBs and a Royal PB to start until I find some other things.

When you send an FR message you have the option to attach treasure or gems to it. Which you can find under the part where you can type in your message, where it says "attachments".

I get that you're trying to make this fair, and personally I love math...
 

Terminology:
n = number rolled on the die
GF = Game Factor: a randomly, non-scientific/mathematical derivation factor to multiply with depending on the game. Neopets is 100,000 NP. Flight Rising is 50,000 T. If person opted to both game options, a coin is flipped to determine if GF refers to Neopets or Flight Rising.
CP = Currency Product: Number on dice multiplied by GF resulting in amount of non-premium game currency. 
RNG = Random Number Generator.
 
When entered, you'll be assigned a number.
I use an RNG to pick out the daily winner by number assignment.
I then use another RNG to roll four dice.

  • Primary Roll: If n≥5, proceed to Tertiary Die. If, n≤4, multiply n by GF and proceed to the Secondary Die.
  • Secondary Roll: If n=1 or 2, multiply n by GF and add to Primary Roll, END. If n=3 or 4, multiply n by GF, convert cumulative CP to item(s), END. If n=5 or 6, convert cumulative CP to item(s), proceed to Quaternary Roll.
  • Tertiary Roll: Each n represents a Tiered prize level where n=1 is an item valued at least GF*3 to n=6 being the most expensive item donated for that game. Items/gifts not applicable to CP value are under n=4 and 5. END.
  • Quaternary Roll: If n≤3, add bonus currency or items depending on n. END. If n≥4, do nothing, END.
Examples:
1.3.5.1.= ~400K NP in Neopets ITEM(S)/200K T in Flight Rising ITEM(S).
5.4.6.4.= JACKPOT ITEM
2.6.3.2 = ~200K NP in Neopets ITEM(S)/100K T in Flight Rising ITEM(S) and some bonus.
 
Sample Probabilities
1:18 Receiving 100K NP/50K T worth in item(s).
2:9 Receiving at least 200K NP/100K T currency
1:9 Receiving a combination of an item(s) and currency.
1:18 Getting the Jackpot Item
 
..... and much much more

 

 
 but I don't think it really needed this level of analysis.  :unsure:
 
I'll donate 1 mil FR treasure.

I kinda expected for you to point out a "flaw" than an pithy opinion. I feel disappointed, but then again, that means I did a good job, I guess.  :/

Just means that you'd be eligible to win from that point on. The earlier you enter the better but are eligible to enter anytime during the month.
