Somewhere in Kryta a large wooden door has silently materialized and ominously creaked open, a cold wind lazily blows through the cracks in the door’s frame.

Peering through the door you will witness a dusty rosewood coffin perched on an ancient Deldrimor stone plinth, a warm glow pulsing softly from the exterior.

With a faint rattle, the coffin’s lid is beginning to slide away, and you will swear by the six that a snowman head is peeping at you from the shadows.

If you linger a while at that unnatural door you will hear a whisper like the breeze through Autumn leaves that coos…

“Wake up your highness, it’s that time of year again.”

A golden figure approaches, could it be the 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 stand fast and deign to linger a while,
The Snowman King will enchant you with his old smile.

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

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

About

Come one, come all to Tyria’s oldest player run event!
(2016 marks it’s 11th consecutive year)

The Snowman King and her majesty Mad Queen Malafide cordially invite you all to attend the King and Queen’s Horrorween 2016! A grand Halloween caper to fright and delight! Featuring the famous costume contests, live in-game bands and fan favorite activities you have all come to know and love!

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

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 5, 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 29th of October, starting at 6pm CEST! All you have to do is attend, take part in the festivities, and fabulous prizes will be in store for you.

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. US players are highly encouraged to take part as well.

First place winner: Ghostly Infusion + Mystery Goodie Bag

Second place winner: Accursed Chains + Mystery Goodie Bag

Third place winner: 30 gold or equivalent + Mystery Goodie Bag

The raffle

Pick a number between 1 and 250, 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!
