 Halloween Is Awesome

And since it is so awesome, it would therefore also be awesome to have a Halloween event on the Island. Such as...

Trick or treating around the various clan halls and inns,
Costume parties within clans or in town squares,
Short Halloween plot adventures in town or map squares,
Games like bobbing for apples with an Island twist,
Spooky pranks and tricks using /special (fun, not malicious, guys)

And so on. I think it would be fun if we could get clans involved in this, perhaps hosting activities or handing out tricks n' treats to people who knock on their clan door. Sessine pointed out that a clever way to do costume parties would be to start all your comments with :Whatever Your Costume Is. IE
:the Fairy Princess bops Ebenezer with her magical wand.
High Lady Escemfer the Fairy Princess bops Ebenezer with her magical wand.

Is this actually the kind of event anyone would be interested in? And does anyone else want to contribute ideas, or get their clan involved?

We can all be Halloweenies!

Something would be fun if I'm about. (Which odds are high that I'll be home.)

Ooooh, yes! Yes yes yes! I want, very muchly. At the minimum we could have a costume party in IC, or somesuch. But yes! Halloween is my favorite, and I think this all sounds like a grand idea.

This idea is awesome enough for me to contribute.

I want Halloween events!

I'm already thinking of costume ideas for Ferryn.

I VOTE YES!

-- I like the ideas of events. Maybe since the Islympics got canceled, Clans would like to come up with Halloween events instead. At least, they could come up with something to "add" to the holiday: Food, Decorations, Candy (candy, and more candy), costumes (some people might need costume-help!)

I like the idea a lot. Maybe we could ask each Clan to come up with treats to give out and write up their decorations?

Babbling. Throwing out random ideas. Someone take one and make it better! *tosses idea-confetti*

I say we go for it! And clans giving out candy might be a little difficult what with people not being able to get into their halls. Perhaps if they just set up booths in different outposts? And Yes to costumes. A super giant mega yes. Now I have to think up something good for Xane...


Some people see the glass as half full, some people see it as half empty, I just spit in the cup until it isn't a problem anymore.

Hey, Skidge. These people all joined after last year's Halloween. Nobody who was there has forgotten it. I guarantee. NOBODY. ...Not even Gorbert, who slept through the whole thing!

Without dwellings this year, any Halloween events will have to take place in the open. All the chat spaces can have things happening... there's lots of scope. I'm thinking New Pittsburgh ought to be properly haunted with /specials...

Also, you have a perfectly black-themed event coming up Skidge. Might as well take seasonal advantage of it eh?

You're damn right, Skidge's Halloween party is one of the few things I remember from way back then. I came dressed as the Improbability Drive!

And changed costumes after being beaten severely several times

There were Imps flitting about serving refreshments, and Zolotisty and Sessine (and...someone else?) were putting on a play.

And I wanted to meet Skidge, who I had seen around, for the first time but she wasn't there and then she disappeared. Sad Frown

Oh, man, something Halloweenie would be awesome. I'm all for the "clans take over outposts" idea. And costumes.

Must start planning now.

And as a newbie, I want to hear more about Skidge's parties...

Awesomeee, looks like good feedback. I'll take on the daunting task of Distracting clan leaders this weekend to ask if they'll want to plan an event. What does everyone think of having Halloween activities span over two or three days, so that everyone has a chance to participate? And, say, if Clan A can't host in an Outpost because they're all filled up, they can do it on a different day.

Setting up booths around the Island for trick-or-treating would be a fun way to go about it. We could also make use of the clan hall waiting room to knock on doors, but that might get kind of crowded and confused. Any other thoughts on what you guys would like to see?

HOST A HALLOWEEN PARTY, SKIDGE, DAMN YOU!

Note: If clan leaders want to host an event on a certain day in a certain location, please post it here so any interested parties know about it!

And of course, to save on Outpost space, certain clans could host events on chat spaces in the wilderness.

I have just had a "BRILLIANT!" idea regarding this in regards to what AiB can do.

Our coming events are practically perfect for this!

ZEHAHAHA!

About what can be done for Halloween? Absolutely.

About what I mean by 'our coming events'? That, dear Silcatra, will be remaining a surprise.
