It's about time to celebrate all that is spooky and sweet, so I hope you will join us in many festivities to celebrate the event!
What is the Haunted Eve Event you may ask?
"Haunted Eve" is a generalized name for the month of October in the world of Elyxium. Many religions and districts celebrate this month differently, however, the theme of death and magic is always prevalent. In general, Haunted Eve is a form of the old human tradition of "Halloween" with a few changes. Family and friends can partake in the month's more festive activities, while those devoted to the darker side of life may be drawn to the Eve's more macabre and magical events. Haunted Eve is both a time to explore death and magic alike, as by the end of the October month the blood moon rises, possibly unlocking one's inner afflictions...
