2022-11-07 20:33:40 +0000 UTC by KevinY3 and TurboClicks

As we're sure some of you remember, we ran a writing and art contest through the month of October. The polls are in, and we have some winners to present.

Congratulations to _Guru for winning the writing competition, with _Gent taking a close second place. It's been vindicating to see such a variety of writing styles and formats in the list of submissions. The art competition was won by AdamteMC with his chilling illustration, aptly called 'I Buried Every Single One of Them Myself'.

The winning entries are linked below. Happy browsing, and thanks for participating.

Ladies, gents, and everything in between — welcome to another spooktacular serving from our Events team. Enjoy the sights of Gaipan during Halloween!

To experience our little brand of terror, visit the warp areas in your capital — and remember, try not to think about what goes bump in the night.


Midnight in Gaipan Direct Link

"Something is afoot in the usually sleepy village of Gaipan. The Festival of Sun Li is normally a time for celebration, for it marks a time when the spirits meet the living.

This time, something has gone horribly wrong. The benevolent spirits are no where to be seen. In fact, no one is to be seen, the town is nearly deserted. Let us pray that you don't meet the same fate..."

The dead have risen from the earth. Put them back where they belong, before you join them. They say that familiar faces have been spotted amongst the walking dead. Just who could they mean by that?

Candy, meant to be enjoyed by those at the festival, has been dropped all over the village. Gather as much of it as you can — you never know what rewards await you.

Each capital city has a hub where you can teleport straight to the event.


Ghost Island Direct Link

A seasonal quest returns this year.

When Watt's nephew goes missing on a deserted island, he enlists the player's help to find him. Tread carefully; unspeakable horrors happened here, and the spirits are restless. One more thing: try not to stare into the dark too long. The dark might stare back, and you'll find out what kind of thing goes bump in the night.


The Village Ghosts Direct Link

This haunting quest is back for your enjoyment.

A simple delivery job looks easy enough, but not everything is as it seems...


Across The Bridge Direct Link

An unseasonably large pumpkin has grown across the bridge of Gaipan. No doubt that dark and evil forces are at work. Investigate this massive gourd and discover its secrets.

Inside you will find Bwake's Maze of Horrors. Watch your sanity as you try to reach the end — ten candies await you if you do!

There's more to see in this area. The Great Pumpkin Hunt is exactly what it says on the tin. Seek out the hidden pumpkins, and gain a reward.

There are two achievements for completing the tasks in this area: Bwake's Maze of Horrors and The Great Pumpkin Hunt. Both offer 5 candy upon completion.


Cosmetics Direct Link

Spooky cosmetics are available once again. The merchant will be more than happy to give them to you for a price, of course.
