Advent Calendars

Every Christmas as a gift to it's readers, Orcs in the Webbe becomes an Advent Calendar of sorts, counting down the days remaining to Christmas. However, instead of chocolates or sweets, every day from the 1st through to the 25th of December we publish an article of interest to it's readers. All the content is spread throughout the site, each in it's rightful place, but you can see the complete summary pages, along with each years introduction, by following the links below.

  • The 2007 Advent Calendar

    In 2007, as a Christmas gift to it's readers, Orcs in the Webbe became an Advent Calendar of sorts. Instead of chocolates or sweets though, each day it published a piece of content for the twenty four days running up to Christmas. It was so popular that we here at Orcs decided to make it an annual event.

  • The 2008 Advent Calendar

    After it's popularity in 2007, in 2008 Orcs in the Webbe one again became an Advent Calendar as well as bringing it's readers some classic articles it also brought with it a whole host of new original content written exclusively for inclusion on the calendar.

  • The 2009 Advent Calendar

    After it's continued popularity in previous years, in 2009 I once again decided to run the Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar. For this year I decided that instead of running a mixture of reprints and new content to attempt to release a brand new piece of content everyday for the twenty four day run up to Christmas.

  • The 2010 Advent Calendar

    Sadly due to my father passing away the 2010 Advent Calendar took a bit longer to get up and running on OITWand even then it wasn't 100% complete. However, despite this it did bring us two classic Flintloque booklets updated to 3rd Edition, fourteen original articles, two new mini-games and the annual Alternative Armies interview.

  • The 2011 Advent Calendar

    Due to a drop in readership and my increased workload over on Barking Irons the 2011 Advent Calendar nearly didn't come to be, but after some encouragement and a great surge of support it brought us twenty original articles, two Flintloque archive updates, an article by a GW writer and of course, the annual AA interview.

  • The 2012 Advent Calendar

    After the success of the 2011 calendar and the kind words throughout the year there was never any doubt about running the calendar again in 2012. Once again a load of people agreed to create some splendid articles which coupled with the smoother OITWv6 interface made it one of the best years yet.
