    The big FK Secret Santa reveal

    It is finally time to share stories and pictures of the third edition of FK Secret Santa.  Secret Santa is a gift system where members are randomly assigned a person to whom they give a gift. The identity of the gift giver is to remain a secret, adding a lot of surprise to the present itself. All participating Secret Santas have received their mysterious presents and some of them sent in pictures of their new toys to play with. Ready to discover all Secret Santa presents of 2019?

    @Articwinter

    "This is my first time participating in the FK Secret Santa event and I had an absolute blast. Going in to the event I were actually more pumped about sending a gift than receiving, and for a little while I even forgot that there was one coming my way. When my gift arrived though, I was hyped beyond measure. To the extent that I did not even drop my stuff off inside before turning from the mailbox going straight to the post office to pick it up.
    I had listed a plethora of interests and hobbies, among them my love for whiskey and said that I wanted something my Santa could come up with that fit their budget. 
    Boy, did my Santa deliver! 
    Upon opening the package I was faced with a handwritten note and a bottle of Irish whiskey, one I have never had before.
    Of course I had to immediately give it a try, and it really hit the spot with a nice smooth taste. 
    I really enjoyed this and i'm already looking forward to FK Secret Santa 2020!"






     
     
    @colt92
    "Thanks kind Santa for this beautifully engraved dice box (also, love the smell of wood!). It has already been put to use for the housing of dice that shall be responsible for many diddlings, PKs and maybe even TPKs on one Sunday or another. Who knows, in the future it might even house the untold powers of a yet to be born hero.
    Dice Box
    wondrous item, rare
    Any dice that spend 1d20+10 days in this dice box with the lid closed become charged with a magical aura that makes it temporarily impossible for them to roll below their average result. Each die then gains 1d4 charges, and one is spent every time the die is rolled in order to activate the magic effect. Any unspent charges fade 24 hours after the lid is reopened. If the box is opened before the dice are fully charged, the effect does not take place and the process must begin again."


    @EdwardR
    "Gift arrived on the 19th, so plenty early. Since I picked it up at the post office, I hoped I would be able to stuff the box in my backpack and call it a day. Nope! Had to swiftly open it and without looking get it into my bag.
    As for the package itself, it was quite nice in idea, but Amazon seems to have dropped the ball on this one. I guess whoever was my Secret Santa requested gift packaging, but whoever was the unfortunate one to put it together seemed to forgot to put the items in the bags. Oh well.

    The items were 2. A book that I am looking forward to reading, and a set of 4 gigantic metal chopsticks. Probably meant for serving. Sadly, there was no message from whoever was my Secret Santa, so I can't thank directly.(I have a sneaking suspicion it might have been Silent, but I guess I'll never know for sure.) Still though, pretty nice gift, not gonna lie. "
    @Vericht
    "I am amazed by the person who sent me this present because he was very thoughtful and original by not only sending a present to me personally, but sending something special for all my family.
    Present consisted of two amazing and very comfy Norwegian wool sweater for my daugher and me and two very nice souvenir thimbles for my wife to add to her collection. I am wearing this sweater for almost a week now and it is super comfy. My daughter is also very amazed with it.
    I am very happy by participating in this event and I am amazed by people in our community. I hope person who got a present from me found it also nice. "
     

        

    @Wheezy
    "So, i woul like to thank nerosjin for his effort as to getting the original gift, but nonethe less this gift is awesome, as much as there is nothing wrong with my aim, ive been wanting a rifle scope for quite a while but my small salary only allows for certain things, plus its a high quality scope too, really liked this gift and i look forward to next years secret santa."
     


     
    @zaans2
    "Family Tradition to do gifts on Christmas Eve so just opened it, Thanks for the gift!"

    @Alex
    " I got the shittiest camping gift, a camping toilet.. my assessment is, that it is in fact, quite shitty. "

    New ARMA 3 APEX singleplayer scenario released

    Santa is delivering a fun present early this year. A new open-world singleplayer scenario, created by the ARMA 3 developers, has been released in beta. Playing as a retired Legionnaire, the region of Tanoa is hit with a dangerous new strain of malaria. Humanitarian crisis is looming and a possible plot is brewing. Together with a former military contact, you set out to uncover the truth.
     
    The Old Man scenario drops you into Tanoa's 100 km² tropical jungle island terrain with only a few instructions. It's your own decisions and gut feeling that will decide your path. Obtain intel, gather weapons and equipment, and tackle your objectives at your own discretion. The beta version of this scenario is now available for download on the ARMA 3 Steam Workshop. As it is still beta, you can file game issues to the Arma 3 Feedback Tracker.

    Secret Santa Gifts are Arriving!
    Secret Santa gifts have all been sent to the post (hopefully) and are arriving at their destinations! Though the rule of thumb is to wait until Dec. 25th to open your Secret Santa gifts, FK is not known for following rules to the letter. Some are posting their gifts a bit early! Go check them out! 
    Think Tank Applications
    The think tank is a locked forum only staff, veterans, and selected members of the community can see. This is a forum for community feedback about specific topics the CM Team deems they need more feedback on. The CM team is looking to reshuffle the roster again, but unlike any other time before there is an application process now.
     
    As some of you may know my real life situation is changing quite drastically here in the new year, so I will not be able to devote my normal amount of time and energy into these INTREPs as before. Therefore the INTREPs will be suspended for the holiday season and will be brought back at the start of February! Thank you all for your support and feedback and have a wonderful holiday season! See you in teamspeak!

    Airsoft meetup - Photoshoot (part two)

    Back in July, over 40 FK members gathered in the small town of Dorking, United Kingdom, for a two day airsoft meetup. In between games, the PR team grabbed a couple of FK members aside to immortalize their presence with a picture of two. Just like our first part of this series, we asked (kidnapped) three FK powerhouse members to take a pose. Meet Fidelias, Cyanide and Sarissa.
     
     
    Fidelias


    This is the second time you've taken part in an FK airsoft weekend, the first one being at Shellshock woods back in 2017. How would you summarize both weekends and what made you come back for a second weekend this summer?
    "Both weekends were great from a social point of view, however I felt the site and organisation of the 2019 one was much better - instead of day-long games at the 2017 meetup, we played multiple smaller games across different areas, which gave a lot more variety and a chance to have some CQB, sneaky-beaky stalking and just pitched long-range firefights at different times of the day. The site was much more 'developed' with regards to structures and layout. I came to second weekend because meeting up with people irl the first time was just great - it surprisingly didn't feel awkward at all. From the first night, it felt like it was almost that period between getting into the server and SL briefing. We just sat around, got kit sorted, chatted shit and had a laugh. Meeting a bunch of new people that I've not really interacted with (more on that later) was a real draw for the second weekend, but it was really awesome to re-connect with guys from the first meetup too."
    As a long standing FK member, did you get to know a lot of new people during this meetup?
    "While I've been part of FK for a while now, I kind of burnt out a little on Arma and stopped playing as often. Following that, I developed a chronic fatigue issue, which knocked me on my ass for the last 9 months and I stopped being online at all, pretty much. Meeting a bunch of great new people and having an awesome time kinda re-vitalised me a little, and I've made it back to Arma a couple of times since. We have some.... interesting people... in FK, and some of the things that went down at the weekend really highlighted how much this community brings together really disparate people with a common interest. I feel like the majority of the people at the meetup this year probably didn't know who I was, but I hope to re-introduce myself to the members of the community who have joined since I took my unplanned hiatus in games in the near-future. When the 2020 meetup comes around, I'm hoping to be a fixture in the community again."
    Cyanide
                  
    How did you get into airsoft? Was the FK 2017 meetup your first experience?
    "Yes! It was. I had always wanted to get into airsoft, and the 2017 meet was the perfect excuse."
    What's the most enjoyable memory you have of the 2019 meetup?
    "Getting absolutely smashed in Jay's Fuckfest. It got my heart pumping unlike any other airsoft game type I've ever played. Non stop action, that."
    Gear list
    "Krytac Warsport M4 is my only piece of kit. And a bunch of go-pros, ofc. #youtuberlyfe"
     
     
    Sarissa


     
    Hi @Sarissa, could you talk to us about the outfit?
    "My outfit is inspired by the US troops active in Operation Gothic Serpent in Somalia, 1993. Most people think of the 75th Rangers or the Delta Force operators that were in Somalia and who have been immortalised by the film 'Black Hawk Down'. But there was another unit deployed as part of Task Force Ranger who very rarely receive any credit at all, and that is the 10th Mountain Division. These guys were actually deployed prior to TF Ranger as part of Operation Restore Hope. They were responsible for opening communication and transportation lines in and out of Mogadishu. As such, they used to roll in Humvee convoys most of the time and would occasionally ditch their Alice web gear in their vics and simply load their ballistic vests up with magazines. That's the look I went for, and instead of carrying the Alice, I just filled pockets with magazines for quick access."
    If an FK member, with zero airsoft experience, would be interested in joining the 2020 airsoft meetup, how would you convince him/her?
    "The airsoft is really a sideshow to the meetup, its much more about actually meeting the people you've spent months or years talking and gaming with. Airsoft is a fun addition, doesn't really hurt much and gives you some great stories. If you want to meet people then come to 2020! "
    gear list
    "I'm carrying an XM177E2 which was an early precursor to the M4. A few of them were still kicking around in the 90s and were sent to Somalia alongside some of the newer rifles as a testbed. I'm wearing Desert Camoflague Uniform (DCU), which is also known as Tri-Colour. The helmet is an ex-issue Kevlar PASGT with a 6 colour 'Choc-Chip' cover. The vest (that isn't too visible) is a Woodland PASGT. Gloves are the US army Nomex flight gloves, and the boots are a modern US Marine patrol boot. Actual 90's era desert boots are pretty expensive...
    This photo is an example of some of the 10th Mountain in Somalia, showing just how varied their gear could be. "
