Halloween Party - 2019

I know most remaining players will be busy this October 24th grabbing superfluous items for the Liars Festival. But what about the real Halloween spot?



Yes, I am talking about having a Halloween party with costumes, dancing, music, and drinking!
Let's all hang out in Barovia the monster capital with the vampires, werewolves, witches, and ghouls.
Pretty easy to do, bring your best game face and let's do some hunts, chat, and get the real party going.
Here are some ideas;

Trivia contest? I know it is way to easy to look up stuff online these days. But maybe someone can come up with something?
Scavenger hunt? This would be fun, make list of items that drop in Barovia and have them run around looking for them. The first party to return with all the correct items in inventory wins.
Web Radio DJ? Anyone running Twitch or Discord can stream us a feed. But we need "Halloween music" like Rob Zombie, not just some screamo metal or pop junk.
Costume contest is a must!

Let's show Cryptic we know where the real party should be. Let me know here, if you plan to attend, so we can get an idea how many maps are going to be busting at the seams!

Feel free to pitch in where you can help out.

    @nitocris83 Go right ahead, we need people to turn out for a good time. As it happens, I was born Oct 23rd at 11:45 PM. I will be there in the spirit of Halloween as my Asmodeus worshiping warlock, Aero Ironcrown and her husband companion Vhex the demon who is in service to her. Some friends told me they play unloved and evil characters in Neverwinter, but all the game lore is tailored to being a hero. One who played a drow in the game said, people of Neverwinter should be throwing rocks at her. This is one of my solutions for playing an evil character in this game.
    Vhex and Aero left their home in the Hamlar Hills, the foothills of the Cloud Peak, to travel north to Neverwinter. Hearing rumors of dragons collecting in the area of Protector's Enclave, the two set out to fulfill their obligation.

    Asmodeus sent a representative to Aero reminding her of the pact they made long ago. Still healing in the pit, Asmodeus requires powerful magical energy harvested from souls in order to heal his wounds. What could be more powerful than the souls of dragons themselves? Vhex is loyal to his wife and vows to follow her back into the Nine Hells, if need be.

    As far as the good people of Neverwinter would know, Aero and her husband would be just more dragon slayers and welcomed by one and all. Aero asked, the demon sent by Asmodeus, "What should we do, if they ask us to kill Ashmadai?". The representative hissed a grew darker, "You will kill the Asmodeus worshipers then, for if they die by your hands, then they have failed and will pay the price of failure by feeding the Master.".
    It is my hope we can celebrate Halloween and kick off the Liars Festival. So dust off your masks and bring your broomstick mounts!

    I can suggest some music to consider that would be work for spooky tunes.

    Goth:"Trance To the sun" and "Psyclon nine"

    Goth rock: "Lacuna Coil"

    Melodic Black Metal: "Cradle of filth" and "Dimmu Borgir"

    More thrashy Black metal: "Emperor" or "Satyricon" Or "The Crown"

    i hope some of those fit your tastes. I will try and drop by if i can cause it sounds like a good change from my usual solitary Halloweens

    My husband contacted Paragon Dawn Radio, and Mad Vyking said he has an 8 pm to 11 pm EST slot but his character here is 60. I think we can get him up to 70 in no time. So there is 3 hours of music right there.

    I will plan to be online for a costume contest. We will need some judges. I will provide prizes for winners. Sign up here, if you can be there to judge the costumes. I think we should do the standard 3 with a score of 0 to 10. Base the costumes on some categories?

    I would like to see if we can get an agenda for the day, this is about you the player and not me. I am promoting this, let's make this about the community. We have plenty of time before the 23rd, don't feel you are obligated to "do something" and not be able to do it, just because plans fall through. Take a look here and post Event, Time, and Details. Also check other postings to make sure your event is not overlapping others.

    No word back on the DJ yet, but here is my contribution for the day of the 23rd.
    Event: Costume Contest Time: 8 PM to 9PM EST, 5PM to 6PM PT.
    I will need 3 judges, you can sign up here or I will pick from the adventure zone. Arrive 10 mins early so you can find the instance number (map number) that we will be using. I will pick the lowest population. If we run more contestants than available, the judges will have to hop to other maps. The judges will score all costumes based on categories; comic, horror, and sexy. They will score all costumes 0 to 10, and give me the results in a PM or party chat. I will announce the winners and distribute prizes. The winners will receive an epic mount.

    Event: Epic Hunt Time: 10 PM to 11PM EST, 7PM to 8PM PT.
    I will supply wanted posters to parties who want to hunt for epic gear. The first party to return from their hunt with the gear, will get rewarded. Prizes to be announced (I haven't thought of anything just yet but I will edit this part at a later date). These will be low level hunts just for fun and prizes.

    That is what I am bringing to your party.

    Hi Roleplayers.
    I am Took.
    Although I am a NW veteran, I've never had the pleasure of embracing NW's rich RP subculture.
    But, in a rare demonstration of openmindedness, The Took must publicly endorse Wendy Black's Halloween Party.

    What an excellent idea.

    It is full of the positive energy, esprit de corp (sp) and other fancy words that Took doesn't have the lexicon to use.
    In this crazy time of instability, division and uncertainty, Wendy B comes through with a neat little taste of what made NW fun in the past.

    [STAMP]
    This event is Took Approved.

    P.S.
    Took is not a good DJ. But Took has "two turntables and a microphone".
    Took can get jiggy with it.

    I’m curious. What is the format of the costume contest? Do the contestants get to take turns, catwalk, talk and twirl? Are we allowed to have group costumes? Is a costume just the character’s appearance or does it include their history?

    I am guessing most of it will be up to the judges. Was thinking having the contestants, at the Vistani Camp, identify themselves, so the judges can look them over and rate them on a variety of factors. We never had so much control over color schemes before. At this point, I don't have anyone volunteering to be judges. I want it to be fair as possible, any and all suggestions are welcomed. I will supply the prizes and the costume voted the highest in its category wins the prize. Three categories; comic, horror, and sexy, three winners.

    If I don't forget, I can bring my half-dwarf, half-redcap Kirstryn and her sister Neemi. Her story is in her bio :wink:

    It's neat that you're able to do this right on/after your birthday, so happy birthday in advance.

    @hustin1 I got to looking at the game calendar, realized that people (including myself) will be running around from the 24th to Nov 7th, collecting items for those broomstick mounts and companions. The 23rd happens to be my birthday and the day before the chaos of the Liars Masquerade event. I forget who said it last year, but was suggested too late. I think I gave everyone enough heads up this year, also I tend to be spamming it as I go from place to place. I hope people bring their friends and we can chat about "fun stuff" and not the usual crud we hear all the time in PE. Even if the event didn't cover Halloween, I would never schedule it too close, as many people I know attend physical parties, with real drinking and dancing. :grin: Thanks!

    I want to thank Julia @nitocris83 for donating the following prizes;
    • 5 Gifts of the Performer (Performer's cloak, stone of health, XP boost, and Injury Kits)
    • 2 Miniature Giant Space Hamsters
    • 1 Ice Panther Mount
    Looks like we need some more contests! If nobody can think of anything they would like to do, I will just add a few more costume contests during the day and late evening hours.

    Remember this is YOUR party, make it a great one!

    @sandukutupu ...
    Challenge accepted!

    The Took donates 2 Coalescent Wards as party prizes..
    You'll get them in the mail tonight.

    @sandukutupu , The Took appreciates your positive attitude, community encouragement and esprit de corps.
    NW needs more players like you.

    If you need an additional game or event for these prizes, do you have a costume party?
    Scavenger hunt?
    Hide and seek ("Find The Took", for example).
    Either way, sounds fun. Put these coals to good use.
