Halloween Event '18
Wacky World - every child who has grown up in Anrui has heard of it. Lying dormant and abandoned in the depths of Kain City, the once popular amusement park is now rumored to be a haunted and lonely place... Or is it? Rumor has it that the machines have begun whirring again and circus music can be heard playing after sunset. The sound of children laughing echoes through the surrounding streets, and bright lights have been seen illuminating the evening sky from within. In light of the rebellions earlier in the year, could someone have taken on the momentous task of restoring Wacky World, possibly bringing back hope to Kain in the process?
"Come one! Come all! Wacky World is back in business!"
His face is seen across every TV, every computer, every pokevice. Children are talking about him incessantly in school, and their teachers discuss the odd man behind closed doors. His expressions are kind, his demeanor welcoming. Rumor has it that he's a rich man who grew up in Kain before traveling out of the region. Having returned, he'd like to bring some peace back to his old home, and has decided to do so by revitalizing Wacky World and bringing her back to her old glory. Still, there is something odd about the old man, however no one can quite place what it is.
To kick off the Grand Opening, he's created a maze, just inside the entrance to the park. At the end of the maze are some mysterious prizes, labeled simply as "your heart's biggest desire." Rumor has it there's also a pretty big grand prize, reserved for the person who exits the maze first.
Do you dare enter?
How it Works
Each thread will begin at the start of the corn maze, in the evening of course. Each member may have two threads - one solo thread, and one non-solo thread. While you are welcome to have as many members participating in the non-solo thread as you'd like, we encourage no more than two characters to keep things moving. Your two threads may include the same character. So as to keep things fair, the solo threads will have a higher difficulty.
After your introductory post(s), your character should come to an intersection, where they will need to choose to proceed either to the left, to the right, or straight on. You must make it clear in your post what your character's choice is. From there, you should post your thread in moddables, and a mod will determine what the results will be. Your character will either find a clear path to the next intersection, a spoopy pokemon to battle, or an illusion of their greatest fear that they must break free from. If the character has chosen the correct path, they only need a 100-200 word post to choose the next path; for threads with multiple characters, you may discuss your characters' choices out of character, and have one member post for the group. If your character chooses a path with a battle or a fear, you must play that out before approaching the next intersection and tagging the mod once more.
Your character must choose the correct path five times to exit the maze and complete the thread. You have six weeks to reach the end of the maze, which means the last day to post to earn prizes is November 25th. After that, you may still post in your thread, however you will not earn an end prize. You must finish your thread within the time limit to receive the end prize. You also must post within five days of the last reply for your thread to remain valid.
Battles and illusions will be played out in Adventure System 2.0 format. Also, please please please message the staff any and all ideas you'd like to see being played out via your character's "greatest fears." The more details you give us, the more meaningful this experience can be for your character.Prizes
All characters who participate in the Halloween Event will be automatically entered into a raffle to win one of the "treats" from the October Promo. You may claim this prize immediately upon creating your thread - simply post in moddables and a mod will randomize it into your thread. You may claim this prize twice, even if you're using the same character in both threads.
All characters who finish their thread within six weeks (and maintain the five day post limit) will receive "their heart's biggest desire" in the form of your choice of any hold item, any evolutionary item, any recovery item, 5 rare candies, AND a non-legendary/event mon of your choice, averaged to your choice of character's level (as in, it doesn't need to be the level average of the character who you used in the thread). Please include a link to this character's PC in your last post, however, otherwise the mods will average it to the character you were using.
The Grand Prize goes to the character(s) who finish first. Again, it is your heart's biggest desire, however the pokemon has the opportunity to be one of our event mons: Type: Null, Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, Celesteela, Kartana, Guzzlord, Poipole, Stakataka, and Blacephalon. If you choose an event mon, this Pokemon will be Event-Bound. The pokemon will be at level 5, and have no extra moves. It cannot be bred, traded, or sold. If you choose at any time to give up this pokemon, it will be returned to Anrui Staff for safekeeping. If your PC would go into the PC Graveyard, the Pokemon will be reclaimed by Anrui Staff for safekeeping. It cannot be switched between characters, so once you assign it a character, it will stay with that character, or head back to the Legendary Keep.Have fun, and good luck!
