You will not even have a full hour to succeed, and in all honesty, we don't think anyone will be savy enough to find the end of this baffling beastie.​

    With Soar working on this event, did you really expect to make it home without a fight? We close the night by sending our guests on a combat challenge usually reserved for a select few. No more shall be disclosed... *fade to creepy music*​

    Entertainment Booths*All booths are open throughout the entire event*

    The Bar & BistroPlace : The Shattered Skull Tavern.
    Need a moment to rest, or have a question about the festival? This is the place to go. All night long the Bar & Bistro will be serving food and drinks to honored guests. Sit for a while, have a drink, try a few brain-bending puzzles, or just chat with other faire goers. There is always an open seat and friendly smile waiting for you at the Tavern.​

    The Halloween RafflePlace : In front of the Community Center.
    At some time during the evening, we recommend when you first arrive, head on over to the raffle booth and grab yourself a complimentary ticket. There are lots of prizes to be had, and drawings will be happening every hour! Tune into to the event chat channel for number announcements and winners. All tickets are valid for all draws.​

    Jack Of LanternsPlace : Skara Brae Docks
    As a special treat for our guests we have booked a visit from The Jack Of Lanterns! A fabled and wealthy creature, Jack only appears during the Halloween season. He sails into port with his boat loaded down with treasures won from many a rich and witless merchant. Then he challenges the town citizens and dignitaries to a round of his favorite game "Lanterns". Wagger if you please, or not if you don't. It makes no difference to Jack. He'll play you for the fool you are, just the same.​

    The Fortune TellerPlace : Mages' Menagerie
    Come and have your fortune read by by an expert in the unseen arts. Will your future be filled with love, fame, and riches? Will you be cast to the streets without a coin to your shamed and broken name? Or perhaps you would just like to know if you'll even make it through the night? All will be revealed...​

    The Puzzling BoothPlace : The Shattered Skull Tavern
    Get your puzzler over to this one if you are into challenges of the mind. Should you have the intellect and speed to solve the horrifically tricky puzzles before anyone else, you win the prize! A new puzzle will be handed out every 30 mintues, for a total of five conundrums spread over the entire evening. Medical attention will be on hand for those who cannot handle the pressure.​

    Trick Or Treat?Place : Front of Falconer's Inn
    Which will be it be? There is only one way to find out. Visit this booth located close to the docks and yell "Trick or treat!" to one of the stall keepers. Everyone comes away with something, but if it shall be naughty or nice, only Lady Luck can decide.​

    See You There!!
