    When? Wednesday 31st October at 8:30pm UK Time
    Where? Meet at EM Hall in Britain

    Dupre invites you all to dress up, especially spooky!, to go trick or treating with him on October 31st.. Halloween! Meet him at the slightly later time of 8:30pm UK time at the EM Hall.

    Remember a costume and the later than usual time! Also be prepared to fight, who knows what we might disturb.

    No. Not really. It's clearly a parody of another infamous poster around here :)

    Yes the Event was very cool txs for this!
    You can watch 33 Mins of it txs to Petra streaming and saving it - here: uostratics - Untitled Broadcast

    Concerning Items droped, i dont know the exact numbers so i estimate 15-20 pieces have been droped of this, and i was lucky to get one and am very happy - i dont know if other items droped too:

    A Ghostly Item.jpg

    Its kinda a different hued and named chair in a ghost and i was told it makes crazy sounds when locked down etc.. (but cant confirm because i got no house heeh)

    Looking forward to the next great event!

    Yup, the chair makes a noise when you double click it and walk near it.

    How do you target the monsters? I tried the Ctrl Shift method with not much luck due to all the players and corpses, did not even recognize what the crowd was battling for. And finally I had difficulties to loot due to all the player corpses on the same spot as the monsters, giving me constantly "You may not loot this corpse" messages.

    Pfft, you people don't know what suffering is; I MISPLACED A COW during the event, only 4 of them got through the first gate, and then they all got killed by trying to tickle a monster because the EMs insist on reusing Putrifiers and their mass Poison... It was a national tragedy!

    But which brings me to the more serious point, purging off the poison, as well as resurrecting, doesn't seem to be part of the Healing reward table which is a shame. I've tried to continue the tradition of the SRC in supporting events, as well as getting into the fun of dressing up for Halloween as part of a herd of cows, but I found it just worked against my own interests once more. I didn't even see most of the content once it went into an instance, and staying safe at the back to resurrect you all made it worse. I really don't want to be just another tamer toting a dragon around, but that chair was a really nice (and likely hellishly expensive) item it would have been lovely to have had as a memento. A lot of us were under the impression there would be an actual Costume Contest, which would have fit the theme much better... have fighting as well for those who'd turned up late too perhaps, but really I'd prefer to see a focus on more creative, individual levels of experience than just another CTRL-TAB-AVOID-THE-SUMMONS session. The Royal Investigator process, although not for everyone, is a good example of the kind of gameplay that should also be encouraged...

    Still though; THEY KILLED MY COWS. That's what you should be concerned with. However in fantastic news; OLD DESPISE HAS BEEN MOVED TO HAVEN ON TEST CENTRE. So I can continue training the Moo Moo Crew up again in a newbie dungeon soon!

    Does that mean I have to start training my gang of squirrels again? Has anybody else ever tried to keep 5 squirrels under control when they get into some kind of blood-lust fighting a troll? It's not pretty ....
