Thorn’s are winding to the Arch, in more ways than one.
The inescapable madness beckons, but it has only just begun.

Heralding the arrival of the Monarch most dear,
The moon yawns and splits into a grin from ear to ear.

Why it’s the Queen of Halloween, you dolt!
If you wish to keep your sanity, it’s time to bolt.

But if you standfast and deign to linger a while,
The Snowman King will enchant you with an old smile.

Then that’s it the King and Queen have you under the thrall,
To enjoy a night most spooky, akin to an Ascalon Ball.

“At last!” Krytan’s laugh into the cold night air,
“The Horrorween has come to Tyria, my friends.. it’s here!”


The King and Queens Horrorween 2015
Brought to you by the Aurora Glade PvE Special Interests Group
Time: 30th October, 6pm GMT
Game world: Tyria / Lion’s Arch / Aurora Glade’s Megaserver


About

Ladies and Gentle Ghouls, it is my pleasure to announce that Tyria’s oldest community event (happy ten years Horrorween!) will be making its annual return to Lion’s Arch on the 30th of October.

Join familiar faces and legendary spirits for a night of devilry, merriment and much mischief!

It is not be missed, there is something for everyone.

Activities include: unique in-game activities, art contests, a dynamic lore building story that changes from player participation and so much more.

In the wake of the destruction of Lion’s Arch, many lives were lost. All Hallow’s Eve is a special time, when the spirits rise from their graves once again. This is the time to honor those spirits.
__________________________________________________________________

The Hosts

The King and Queens Horrorween is, as stated previously, the oldest event in the history of Guild Wars. It has been held for over 250 years plus one, but who would be mad enough to host it?

Mad Queen Malafide is the only wife of the Mad King that has managed to survive his deadly pranks, and she returns every Halloween for this tradition.

Daniel Frozenwind, her loyal co-host, is the King of the Snowmen. He guards Grenth’s Hall of Judgement, so that Dhuum may never escape… and he also throws a jolly party!


FAQ – What is this sorcery?

How do I take part?

The event shall be held on Aurora Glade, in Lion’s Arch, on the 30th of October, starting at 6pm GMT! All you do is attend, and take part in the festivities, and you can win fabulous prizes.

Help, I’m not on an EU server, or I can’t make it!

Not to worry! There are other ways to take part in the festivities. We have a fabulous art contest, and a raffle that you can join.

A work around is to create a free account, if you win anything big at the event we will gladly mail it your main account!

You can also win exclusives both with our cross server, and in-game activities!


Cross-server contests:

The art contest

Draw a picture of either Mad Queen Malafide, Daniel Frozenwind, or both!
(See picture of what they look like below)

You can use any material available to you, and you can post your art work right here in this thread. Winners will be drawn during the Horrorween, and we’ll announce the winner on the forums. Please also state your character/account name that you want us to send the prize to. And US players are highly encouraged to take part as well.

First place winner: 125 Gold + Mini Llama

Second place winner: 75 Gold + Entropy

Third place winner: 50 Gold + Final Rest

The raffle

Pick a number between 1 and 500, and we’ll randomly draw five winners from that list, during the event. Just pick one number and your character name, and post in this thread which number you’ve chosen. You can’t take a number that has already been picked, and one number per account. Some folks may receive a different number automatically, if they choose a number that is already taken. Without a character name, we can’t send you the prize. Make sure you spell it right. And yes, US players can take part as well!


In-game activities of note

The Attire of Autumnal Awesome Costume Contest

This year we have another costume contest of course. Our ghastly group of judges will be lending their dark votes to this tradition. Best male, female, and worst costume win special prizes and maybe something exclusive from the gem store! Dress your spookiest!

In-game lottery

We have a big special prize in store for the people of Tyria (but it is a secret, and anyone who knew about the prize has been buried alive). Simply attend the event to have a shot at this prize.

Scavenger Hunt

A masterfully witty scavenger hunt to re-build the Wickerman, presented in five stages throughout the event, the first person to successfully gather the parts required will be rewarded in a big way!
