1. Uncover Santa's Gift List


Jingle Ringford at the Staging area

Welcome! Hop in the gondola to take a ride up the mountain to Exit 19: Santa's castle!

Santa asked me to design the new badge, and he wanted it to look really cold - like it was frosty.

Click your badge (the snowflake in the center of your avatar) to read your objectives.

We have specially appointed Kringle Koncierges as helpers; you can hit them up for help in the #general channel!

If you get a minute, check out Ed Skoudis' official intro to the con!

Oh, and before you head off up the mountain, you might want to try to figure out what's written on that advertising bilboard.

Have you managed to read the gift list at the center?

It can be hard when things are twirly. There are tools that can help!

It also helps to select the correct twirly area.




You will need the image from the billboard in the Staging area.

This can then be loaded in to File → Open

Once it is loaded, use the Polygonal Lasso Select (see the top left corner in the image below) to select the List. The selection can be seen as the dotted line.

Then go to the menu and select Filter → Distort → Twirl... This will open a the dialogue shown below. Change the Angel slider until you can read the list.


So Josh Wright is going to get a "Proxmark" for Christmas.

We will find out more about the Proxmark from Bushy Evergreen in the Talks Lobby.

Great work with that! I'm sure you'll be able to help us with more challenges up at the castle!
