It’s Halloween—and your routine trip through the nearby forest is about to get spooky...
General Event CreditsEdit
This year's event is a choose-your-own-story narrative, allowing players to make a choice as part of a story and seeing the kinds of effects this has.
You stand at the entrance to Crestback Forest, pumpkin-shaped bag in one hand and lantern in the other. It’s Halloween and your small house on the edge of the forest is too far from your neighbors for any meaningful candy gathering. To maximize your sugar-to-time ratio you have to travel to the city, which means going through the woods next to your house. It’s a trail you take several times a year and know well enough, though you usually go during the day. Even so, something seems a little odd about the woods tonight. It’s dusk, but there are usually still birds calling, and the insects aren’t chirping as loudly as most nights. There’s a bite in the wind that you don’t remember being there the night before.
You shake off your nervousness. You’re just letting the darkness unsettle you. Of course it’s colder than usual; it’s autumn. It must just be too cold for the forest creatures and they settled down early. You aren’t scared. Not even a little. You picture the lights and narrow, winding streets of the city and square your feet. It’s candy time.
Before you the path snakes under the trees, heading south. Behind you your small wooden house sits on the side of a hill, windows dark.
