    Anno’s Last Christmas
    (sung to the tune of ‘Silver Bells’)

    Anno’s dying,
    Anno’s dying,
    Hear the paper boys cry,
    In the air there’s a
    feeling of sadness

    Markets empty,
    Fields unkempt-y,
    Chatters saying goodbye,
    Ev’ryone wanting
    a few more years

    Blue Byte please,
    Blue Byte please
    The twelfth island slot awaits me
    Oh Taku,
    why won’t you,
    allow time to beat Greybeard.

    Traders quitting,
    Discos sitting,
    All round the lighthouse
    As their needfulness,
    gradually dwindles.

    Open quest book,
    build a song book,
    Mystery island tips please,
    Curse the Knowledge Points
    won on the spinner

    Blue Byte please,
    Blue Byte please
    The twelfth island slot awaits me
    Oh Taku,
    why won’t you
    allow time to beat Greybeard.

    Daily check-ins
    Wait five seconds
    after hitting chat send
    No more worry about
    all the counters

    Farfeg’s goats and,
    West the *poof* man,
    will go out with the end
    No more Knight_David’s
    cool trivia games

    Blue Byte please,
    Blue Byte please
    The twelfth island slot awaits me
    Oh Taku,
    why won’t you
    allow time to beat Greybeard.

    Bella’s brine sales,
    Josey’s tall tales,
    BulletGod’s on the scene
    As Mod_Yardly pops
    in for a minute

    Valk is talking,
    her cats walking,
    between her and the screen,
    Hoping Northburgh will
    join us for Christmas

    Blue Byte please,
    Blue Byte please
    The twelfth island slot awaits me
    Oh Taku,
    why won’t you
    allow time to beat Greybeard.

    ---------- by SolelyLinux ---------

    There’s not space enough to include everyone, so please don’t feel left out.

    Dear Anno Santa, I’d like world peace and I think that can be achieved in my world with a huge apple island and the 12th island slot. A ghost brig would be nice, too, since I sunk my Northern galley. Or should I say packet 2 on the Schatzkiste server?

    Thank you,
    Solely

    My ships are all out, my scouts are all looking, hoping to find a tarp or a pillar
    Northburgh keeps sending his treasure ships out and helping the newest little feller
    Pios, Merchants Vassals and Imps ready their hoses and hovels for Santa,
    Even as Anno approaches the end
    Too many friends, too many fond memories, never again will a game ever challenge
    or stir imagination as anno online And for me a 5 pillars, 5 tarps to complete my amph and maybe some fence corners and straight. Taku and Magi and Yardly you are appreciated and will be missed
    I am Josey

    Anno Lament
    (to the tune of Silver Bells)

    What a ride this has been
    Building a world from scratch
    Newport Isle made me smile When I found it

    Starting small then standing tall
    making goods and trading them all
    Finding many good friends on the way

    Rose petals falling, income dropping
    Goldberg stealing our goods,
    Then anno dropped bomb for Christmas

    No more anno after next month where will all my friends now go
    BB_Taku, Magi and Yardley made chat run so smooth
    All the guilds that made such fun will be memories soon
    Yet the memories all will remain

    Christmas bells won't ring the same and tress will recall the woodcutter
    Mama will be so proud, once the end arrives cause now I will return back home



    All I really would like is to find 6 tarps and 5 pillars before the 31st of Jan.

    I know I have said some unkind words over the past year, however, Thanks BB for the enjoyment, and the netertainent
    Anno will be missed
    I am Josey

    Little baby Jesus, gently in the dream;
    Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
    Goats are all a-gleam.

    Dancing ships are sailing, off into the blue;
    Verily, verily, verily, verily,
    So must me and you.

    Blessed for having met thee, through a gift or two;
    Warily, warliy, warily, warily,
    Buying rubies too.

    Now we are departed, nevermore to play;
    Fare to thee, fare to thee, fare to thee, fare to thee,
    Well upon your way.

    - FarfegNugen, the Goat King...

    who'd really love the 11th island slot or a goat tree.

    Oh give me a home where the white-tail deer roam,
    Where the West and the KnightDavid play,
    Where seldom is heard a *** word,
    And the skies are not cloudy all day.

    [CHORUS:
    Home, Anno-Online,
    Where the West and the KnightDavid play,
    Where seldom is heard a *** word,
    And the skies are not cloudy all day.]

    Where the pioneers come, and the pioneers go,
    Replaced by vassals to imp,
    Where now we repine our dear Anno-Online,
    Will no longer yield apples or hemp.

    The players are pressed from this part of the west,
    Likely no more to return,
    To the isles of delight where the chatter is bright
    And the pirate ships smolder and burn.

    How often at play trading produce away,
    Via ships on the glittering seas,
    Did we ponder the day of the end of our play,
    When all our commerce would cease.

    Oh, I love the wild flowers in these dear lands of ours,
    The hamlets and cities so fair,
    And I love the white rocks and the sheep herder flocks,
    That graze in a square here and there.

    Oh give me a land where the gardens are grand,
    With monuments noble and strong;
    Where the cart pullers know they always can mow
    Right thru walkers while trav'ling along.

    But alas with twinklig eye, we bid Anno-Onlne goodbye;
    Where the West and KnightDavid played;
    And seldom was heard a *** word,
    And the skies were not cloudy all day.

    I don't want a lot for Christmas,
    There is just one thing I need.
    I don't care about Books, Wine and Meat.
    I just want NorthBurgh's island for my own,
    More than you could ever known.
    Taku, please make my wish come true.
    All I want for Christmas is his cattle and stew.


    Marinko,
    who would like to get a Christmas Chronicle

    Gather round all ye in the residence
    Warm by the hearth made possible by the lumberjack
    And hear a tale while you open your mysterious chests
    It's of pirates and a young harbormaster
    The fisherman's hut had been raided
    All those in the farms and fields were summoned
    To board the brigs, galleys, and caravels
    Yet the harbormaster hopped on a scout
    Upon seeing the lighthouse secure
    Went sailing, discovering isles a plenty
    Including the pirate hold
    With chain shot on hand
    And a nimble skiff
    The harbormaster brought an end to the pirates
    And booty for the treasury
    May your presents be worthy of a lucky treasure hunter

    Wish:
    Ducats for last three island slots (or at least one of them) and for KnightDavid to get enough xp to reach level 50
