Ok, This is weird. I Just got the Marley's ghost dream when resting, TODAY.... Does anyone else besides me find this more than a little odd? (This is the second time ive had something odd happen, I got the Caveman dream LAST WEEK???) --Spindizy 01:52, 30 January 2007 (CST)

I also used the cigar after rollover and got the second ghost on the same day. I think the reason people had to wait after the first day was because the second ghost encounter hadn't been implemented yet. --Poochy 00:33, 4 December 2006 (CST)

Shortly after rollover I adventured at the Toymaking cave again, and the second ghost popped up. Didnt screencapture (wasn't really thinking at the time). As a note though I had used the cigar AFTER rollover, and was visited by the spirit of Crimbo right-about-now on the same day.--Billyjoe 22:57, 3 December 2006 (CST)

It doesn't work for me. When I use my house nothing happens.--Peterwhimsey 02:33, 1 December 2006 (CST)

  • You need to get the quest first. Check your campground, as the update says. --Antipode 03:00, 1 December 2006 (CST)

After using hte Cigar, has anyone slept again to see if they get another dream?--Rikmach 02:39, 1 December 2006 (CST)

  • Yes, attempted to sleep after the first quest item and nothing happened.--Esko 02:43, 1 December 2006 (CST)
  • It's not all rolling out at once. This is just the first installment of new content. --Antipode 03:00, 1 December 2006 (CST)
  • Rested multiple times, about 5 since having the quest at log and having talked to elf still no ghost, though I got the most common underwear dream a couple times.--Practitioner of Saucy Arts 03:16, 1 December 2006 (CST)
    • figured it out, lump causes nightmares, updated it but not well nor with the propper formatting link to the chocalate lump quest item from the advent calendar.--Practitioner of Saucy Arts 03:35, 1 December 2006 (CST)

With my multi, I dove stright in with the chocolate lump and resting before visiting the crimbo elf, replacing him with the Crimbo Rock. The quest did not show up in my log, and after 200 adventuresbeating up elves, no leaf dropped. Is that likely bad RNG luck, or am I probably boned with the quest on that account? --Squi 04:02, 1 December 2006 (CST)

  • Nah it's just really, really bad RNG luck. I also rushed in without realising and missed out on the Crimbo Elf. I got the leaf after about 80 adventures. It only seems to drop off one of them so as already said, it's probably just bad RNG.--

Stefant 04:06, 1 December 2006 (CST)

  • Certainly bad RNG luck. It took me over 150 adventures to get mine. --Antipode 08:17, 1 December 2006 (CST)

I didn't get the quest before finding all these things... -- Misanthrope

Yer waay too lucky. I have been adventuring 150 times at the cave with Baron Von Ratsworth's monocle equipped and my Frozen Gravy Fairy as my familiar, and no luck. --Swordmast3r, 9:15, December 1 2006.

At of the end of the first day, none of the items found or made by Ugh Crimbo can combine with any of the others with meat paste, except for the cigar and the fire. --LazloFruvous 15:57, 1 December 2006 (CST)

I don't know why everyone is moaning about the RNG, my multi got the leaf after 3 adentures.....--Tornan Steel 02:36, 2 December 2006 (CST)

I initially didn't have this quest unlocked, and had spent the adventures I'd banked up to yesterday and some of today's adventures trying to get the leaf, then visited the Council of Loathing on the off chance that they'd give me the quest. They didn't say anything about Uncle Crimbo, but "Save Uncle Crimbo!" insinuated itself into my quest log just the same. I got the leaf shortly afterwards. Anybody else want to try this that didn't follow the quest the "way it was meant to be done?"--Mister Shiggedy 17:15, 2 December 2006 (CST)

Obviously, you people don't search around KoL to find PART 2! seriously, is it really that hard? Andrew951--Andrew951 20:28, 2 December 2006 (CST)

  • Apparently it is too hard - too hard for you to use common sense, that is. :P --sl1me 21:09, 2 December 2006 (CST)
  • Well maybe a small hint would be nice, this is the wiki after all! --Jimfromtx 00:30, 3 December 2006 (CST)

The Big Leaf can drop from the Flint-Scraping Cave Elf.--Zeta Aspect 19:56, 3 December 2006 (CST)

I've only had an extra lump drop on the second day. Samika 20:36, 3 December 2006 (CST)

I used the cigar, then used the second lump I got after not using the first lump before the second day; but my quest did not reset. --Hi leon 21:42, 3 December 2006 (CST)

It wasn't the day after using the cigar for me, I used it two days ago. Additionally, I didn't rest at my campsite - my first adventure I got a choice adventure where the next spirit appeared. --sl1me 22:56, 3 December 2006 (CST)

Upon choosing the second option, to let CrimboRock remain, the choice adventure to move on to Crimbo Right-About-Now hasn't and doesn't seem to be reappearing. I might have to wait until next rollover. --Sparksol 23:09, 3 December 2006 (CST)

I've done the same thing as Sparksol, but on my second account I logged onto, It still didn't receive the choice dream. When I tried my third account It was the first rest. I'm not sure what that means, but whatever. --Kingrawr 23:42, 3 December 2006 (CST)

Attempting to go to the Simple Tool-Making Cave *after* accepting the new quest results in 'No way, yo' --Terry 23:54, 3 December 2006 (CST)

I got the choice dream just by visiting the Simple Tool-Making Cave (didn't have to rest) and it was my first adventure after rollover. --Fettucini carabinieri 00:01, 4 December 2006 (CST)

  • After about 40 adventures, the choice adventure "Check It Out Now" came up again automatically. Rollover appears to not be required. --Sparksol 00:37, 4 December 2006 (CST)

I made the leaf tube yesterday, but didn't light it until today, after about 100 more adventures in the simple tool-making cave. As soon as I used the lit cigar, I went to the "dream" screen with the choice to go to Crimbotown Right-About-Now. I didn't rest, just clicked "use". --Blueshell 00:58, 4 December 2006 (CST)

I ate the plate of franks and beans after rollover, and then rested in my house, I didn't get any new dream

I have reason to believe that part 3 has been released, because DontFallHere had a carbon nanotube frame for sale in his store

When I ascended, I had to start over, getting the lump of chocolate, eating it, sleeping twice, etc. It didn't just reappear, even after rollover. -- lagaman

I'm going to see if it has anything to do with getting REALLY drunk. =D I'll edit back to see. --Blade740 00:10, 6 December 2006 (CST)

  • nope--Blade740 00:37, 6 December 2006 (CST)


Three_Leaf_Ivy: The third part was released by accident. enterthedarkrealm: the third part is not out yet rroxybot: hmm... well people seem to think it is..i'm confused!! Three_Leaf_Ivy: Then they fixed it.\ enterthedarkrealm: check the kol wiki taiseiyo: isn't it abit too early for the 3rd part? chuwenhsuan: Are you sure the third part of the crimbo quest has came out taiseiyo: still like 3 weeks left ShushKebab: Really Ivy, what was released? Masked Man: There was a glitch yesterday that allowed a few people access to the third part. I repeat, not for most of us. It's officially not released yet.


As for completing the third step ... Uncle Crimbo says two things I think may be imnportant: "See ya on Crimbo Eve!" ... and "I don't need it until Crimbo Eve". I think we may still get standard Crimbo gifts this year ... and we MAY lose the Sleigh when that happens. I hope not, but ... --Bork 02:20, 7 December 2006 (CST)

I'm curious why no one has written a Featured Article on Crimboween and whatnot? It'd be a great article. --MagiNinjA 12:23, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Part 3 text

After I accepted part 3, I got this text, which appears different from what is recorded now:

The three figures fade into the dark. One says, "when you awake, you'll be able to visit THE FUTURE!" "INDUSTRY!" shouts another. "Science and technology!" "She blinded me with..."

Is this random, or did the message change recently? (BTW, the "industry, science and technology" bit is also a MST3K reference, specifically the MST3K movie.) --Fo0bar 20:10, 9 December 2006 (CST)

I also got this. --Liangyu88 04:12, 11 December 2006 (CST)--MagiNinjA 12:23, 10 December 2006 (CST)

After completeing

If you ascend after completing it do you have to start over// redo? I want to ascend so I can get the three tiered trophy in a couple of weeks, so I would appreciate a fast response. --Co678 18:46, 12 December 2006 (CST)

  • After ascending, the next time you punch a section out of the spooky advent calendar, you will get a chocolate lump, use it, rest twice, and then the crimbo areas in the big mountains will re-show back up. The time sleigh is a free pull from hagnks, so pull it and you can go to any of the three "times" you want. --JRSiebz (|§|) 21:13, 12 December 2006 (CST)
