For those new or unfamiliar to the game's celebration of Halloween, each year the school and each house within prepares an exciting evening on All Hallow's Eve that spread all over campus.
Here is the description as outlined in a previous OOC:
Hallowe'en is a big deal at this school. According to the Christian learnings, it's when the gates of Hell swing open and the restless spirits haunt the Earth. It's half-true. Hallowe'en is when the restless spirits that haven't yet passed on come out of their resting places and hunt the earth. Problem is, the Academy has lots of those, and not all of them have been buried in the graveyard. On Hallowe'en, all of them will come out. While they're not evil, these spirits, ghosts and phantoms can be mischievous and loud, which makes falling asleep on Halloween practically impossible.In addition to all that, the experts and all staff will go into the woods, where Mr. Cavanaugh will sing and the spirits will rise. It's a powerful and moving ceremony that only the experts can attend. :) This kicks off the festivities and the rest of the evening is outlined as above.
So, October 31st is decreed to be an All Night Event at the Academy, meaning that not going to bed is encouraged. Curfew doesn't exist for one night. For those that really do need the sleep, there'll be camping beds set up in the main hall, which will be warded against spirits. The different Houses each organize different ways to spend the night, allowing the students to have fun throughout the night. Well, as long as the spirits don't interfere.
Pegasus usually organizes food and a relaxed place to hang out, chill and communicate with the friendlier spirits. Sphinx goes for board games and an extensive fox hunt. Kitsune is the entertainment house, going for video games, movies and television. Hydra is transformed into a Haunted House, where the Hydras have spared no effort to make the house as scary and frightening as possible. And Ladon? Ladon is the party house where they have a huge bonfire, though alcohol is strictly forbidden. The Ladons usually find a way around this. All these things are usually set up by the students in the expert levels, which enables the younger students to browse and have fun.
Costumes are encouraged, following the age-old tradition of dressing up to fool the spirits. Also popular are charms and amulets that provide protection against ghosts.
November 1st is a day off. Most people use it to sleep.
Below, feel free to ask questions or make comments, plot with others players or even shout random stuff. Just have fun with the concept, and creativity is, as always, encouraged.
