    Look below for post-event information and pictures!

    Night was a time for fear. If you hadn't the slightest of shiver down your spine at the sound of something puttering in the alley, or invisible eyes staring holes into the back of your neck, you might be daft. Fear, fear is what keeps you alive, your blood pumping, the adrenaline running through your system forcing you to breathe in the cool, foggy air.
    The blank face with their wide smiled asks, "Who will you be tonight ?" Ah, that time of year, Halloween. The one day where you can be someone else entirely, cover the unrelenting pressure of recognition with a weightless mask. There were no eyes, no whispers, only your own, only within your brain. Around the corner it creeps, a slight metal glint from the pocket within, who, you ask? They are no one. Remove the mask, they are no one, anyone, everyone to exist. A splitting grin, a splitting neck, straining eyes, a strained leg, pudgy and squishy cheeks, there lied your red pudding. Fear creeps in the dark, the cloak over death, the barb wired on both sides.
    "Who will you be tonight?" fluttering smile, fluttering laugh.

    Who will I be?
    I will be fear.

    Is that the sound of a thump, I hear?

    Heyo everyone! We are back in business. I hope you enjoyed my off-the-top-of-my-head-five-minuet-odd-story that I try and add to these events.

    I am sad to announce (to those who haven't seen my mood on my profile) my original plan was to release a pvp event Sunday/Saturday and host the event I am announcing now either Sunday Night or Halloween night (unlikely since y'all will be out and about spooking). However, due to files failing to upload and issues with plug-ins, I am disappointed in myself to admit we will not be able to pull it off :(. Maybe next year! Now into this years event, it is a familiar concept but hey, I hope it is still enjoyable.
    Now I am a sucker for history and stories, and basing my events off of them, as close as I can get without them being dull or mundane. This next event will be a good old Boss Fight. But fighting who you ask? Last year our beloved Pumpkin King fell victim to you wonderful players, this year, his second-removed cousin... *drumroll please*
    The Headless Horseman will ride to torment!
    Yes everyone, good old horseman from Sleep Hollow (personally one of my favs) is our challenger, you all playing the lovely part as Ichabod Crane.

    What will be featured in the boss event

    A scenic setting of the dark forest, the main event focusing around the rickety old bridge.
    Too add some spice and new-content to a boss fight, waves of minions before the Main Stage will arrive, rooting out the wary from the strong.
    Then our main event, the man himself, The Headless Horseman

    Prizes will not be announced until the day of, a little suspense,

    This Event will be held on October 29th (most likely around) 10pm GMT

    Stay Tuned!

    That about sums it up, will edit later and add more if need be,
    Any Questions? Ask below!

    Post-Event Information

    The event was delayed 30 minuets due to npc complications, however due to my wonderful helpers Dawn (otherwise knows as Endie to few), Kii, Troller Player, and Grim.

    With the usual lag and one occasional rule breaker, the event went off greatly.


    The Prizes were

    1. A choice between the horseman's sword skin or a sword with the set skin itself to the players level.
    2. A surprise speed ring (not the same as cross pixels)
    3. A title scroll called "Ichabod Crane"
    4. A detailed pumpkin head skin (same from last year)
    5. The Boniest Bone of them all (a lored bone basically XD a very very rare item indeed)
    6. Anddddd the usual DC (hey who doesn't like imaginary currency that really holds no value except for on our constant greedy needs imaginary or not.)

    After all was said and done, we all took a group picture (myself taking the picture so I won't be in it of course.)

    Here are the pictures :p

    @Zikoran @Ryugene This is a one time event, one showdown. Just like the St. Nicholas event. Otherwise I would note "Event Will last from-" or "Time slots". Keep in mind for future forums :p.

    I assume that you get the skin or you get a sword which is balanced for your level. (The sword would have the skin attached) If anyone sees this and knows if it's wrong then feel free to correct me.

    Is the ring the same as the cross country event reward? Also is the pumpkin head skin the same as the one from last Halloween?
