From the Kensai:
It’s getting to be that time of the year again… when the walls between our world and the next are said to be their thinnest… When ghouls and ghosts emerge from the shadows to give a scare… it’s a time of year that has its own special magic. The air is beginning to get cooler, the days grow shorter, and the nights grow longer. It’s a great time to be going to the Necropolis! The MOP have come to help, and they brought some new trainees with them! The skilled archer; DeathArrows, the fierce warrior known as The Baron, and of course, the bold BraveSirRobin have come along to help investigate the goings on. It’s their task to scout the Necropolis ahead of you and find out where Sally and Bubbles are, and see if they can find out what nefarious plot is afoot.
It’s always a bit of a challenge to capture all the aspects of a player that they envision for themselves. We have to infer a lot of things when we want to make it a surprise, like we did this year. Nobody knew who was picked to go in game. They were chosen for reasons that varied… from the potential for a few good jokes and a spoof, to the visual gag that some forum terminology has inspired. Some liberties had to be taken for the sake of design and story, but we tried to capture as much of the essence of the players in question as possible.
The confrontation! What have Sally and Bubble done? This monster needs to be taken down a peg, and you’re just the hero to do it.
Also; Poor M.O.P.! Nothing ever seems to go right! Now they are stuck having to trek back to Croft and hope to reach the Cauldron Sisters before the spells have been cast! Join them as they wander through the woods on their way to safety and possible help.
* Due to the time that it took to get this all out to you, the event will be left in game for an additional week to give you plenty of time to trick or treat for your masks!
You'll see some new MOP recruits this week as well.... thier awesome helms would be awesome to get... for CANDY. Maybe, just possibly... we can be persuaded!
Verlyrus has made a few updates to Pyromancer as well!
-Made mana costs consistent
