Halloween Event

From this month's Mount Skin:

"Mount Cosmetic Skin

On the 31st of Oleidus, the traditional Verran holiday known as Demontide, The Unseen Order conducts an annual ceremony they call The Collection, at the stroke of middle night. Any members of the sect who possess a Collector’s Touch glove gather to conduct a blood-crazed invocation and summoning ritual. A torchlit forest clearing is filled with a cacophony of maniacal, disembodied laughter, and the grinding, rumbling, and snapping of bones. Limbs and body parts from an untold variety of creatures animate and combine, forming the shambling, undead abominations known as Sacrificial Remnants. These large, many-headed beasts drag themselves about on their hands and knees, scraping the ground with their oversized knuckle bones, as they faithfully obey the orders of the cult leaders.
"

So, the Halloween Event is called "Demontide", and it's in the month of "Oleidus".

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Halloween Event".

    "Will seasonal events in the real-world align with the seasonal rotation in the game world? And I think in that sense probably not. That's going to require a little bit of suspension of disbelief in understanding that."

    What is a Halloween Event?
    If it's an annual Verran holiday, Demontide should occur 6-12 times per real world year.

    Yeah, but it won't - just as the so-called annual Nights of the Dead in EQ2 didn't happen every in game year, but rather every real year.

    Same with Erollisi's day, Brew Day, Bristleane Day and Frostfell. These were all "annual" events in game, with in game lore, that just so happened to take place once every real world year.

    The lore says annual ceremony; not "every leap year".
  • Have we been told how long a Verran year is? I know they've mentioned seasons, but I don't recall them mentioning the year itself?

    Seasons are every one or two weeks. That has not been locked down yet.
    Castle Sieges are on a 4-week cycle.
    It's likely that a Verran year will be 4 seasons - but there might also be a couple of magical seasons...

    Whispers on the wind have told me Demontide is currently just "cosmetics lore"...
  • And seasons can be shortened or lengthened by events, so may not even be regular lengths!

    Well, if it's just cosmetics lore, then someone needs a telling off! :D

    We've had a lot of cosmetic lore which gets removed/changed and just not added in game.

    i feel it need to be longer personally but will find out in testing i guess :D like imagine only being able to play weekend and it like a new season every time u log in, i feel they should be atleast 1 month per season personally but thats what A2 is for i guess.

    1 to 2 week also isnt long enough for seasonal resources to make a difference in the market either bu the time they start to get scarce the right season for that plant will be right around the corner anyway.
  • Will there be different events like season or holiday events in the game?

    People bought things and were removed? :(

    I think Neurath means that cosmetic lore is really just flavor text.
    Some people may have bought items thinking that the flavor text would actually be part of the gameplay.

    * wonders if we can "place" Torches in a Forests : to make it look more like the Unseen Order has Events in said Forests *

    Putting up Torches ? Not just you know - throwing them on the Ground ? Most of the time, Imagination and Creativity is all you need for good Roleplay.
