Greetings and salutations, readers! I'm your host for tonight, and we've got some pleasingly paranormal stories coming your way - just in time for the most supernatural day of the year. So, without any further ado, let's introduce our line-up:
Midnight in Gaipan - Zombies, activities, and candy, oh my!
"At the onset of a full moon, Gaipan's Festival of Sun Li occurs yearly, allowing for humans and spirits to meet in prayer for the blessing of their ancestors and good fortune.
This time, something went wrong. A dark force plagues the town, and prayers fall on deaf ears as the spirits march unflinchingly through the fields. Crops lie unharvested, and men and women alike have disappeared entirely. Investigate the cause of this, and avoid sharing their fate..."
The dead have risen. Put them in the ground, and make sure they stay that way. Or dodge your way through the horde and play through the parkour, the maze, or even just take in the scenery while taking part in a candy speed challenge. Explore, and you might find a few undead personalities waking up from their eternal slumber. Teach them the meaning of forever, then confiscate their alarm clocks so they don't do it again.
Beware: nobody's seen the mayor since it all began, but rumours indicate he's hording candy for himself. If you see him, take him down. Then equally redistribute his candy to each according to need.
To access this, head over to the lake behind Gaipan.
Ghost Island - Brave the eerie quiet to rescue a missing nephew.
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.
Yep, you read that right. Cosmetics in the form of heads are available for the duration of the event, but you'll have to put in some legwork for the merchant to trust you first. After that, haul as much candy as you can find over to him, and get your rewards.
