After receiving a mystery party invite to Jack's Castle, we wandered in
only to see that no one was home. Well, we were invited so we decided to
throw a party here ourselves! Hmm.... Hope it's not a trap or something.
The party takes place in the main ballroom on the first floor, however,
guests are free to explore any part of the castle. We just ask that you
stay out of the second floor, which has the master bedroom and bath, as
well as a few locked doors we can't get open anyway. If you wish to sleep
here, there is bedrooms set up on the third floor in a bunch of empty
rooms we found.
Oh and did we forget to mention that this whole place is made of Ice?
Every. Last. Part. Of. It.
Story Update 1/9/10 : People, please try to avoid the Trap doors, and going outside. Both lead to monsters. Although the monsters are staying out of the main party area.

Blue Forest has been with the Annual Ball since the 6th ball. They work on
raising funds (both gold and items.) for the Annual Ball. This year they
hope to raise over 5 Million for the 8th Annual Ball, which will mean that
the Annual Ball will be able to give out more prizes and be better then it
was last year. So, please drop on by and donate some gold and items to
help them out!
Jack's Castle seems to have weird Snowflakes, there are two of each
kind. Well, naturally we thought of doing a lottery with them. You get one
numbered snowflake, and the same numbered one goes into the pile. At
the end we draw a Snowflake and the person with the match wins!
Okay, Heres how it works.
Like normal Lotterys, The Snowflakes are simply a number you'll be given.
Winner picked on Jan 30th by Gaia's random number.
