Spooktober has returned!


Image


Spooktober had its debut last year as a spooky, month long event between all parts of the site. We're continuing the tradition year with everything you could possibly need to satisfy your Halloween needs! From tagbooks to roleplays, from jams to contests, and even the occasional workshop, we have you covered.

All Spooktober events will be linked in this thread, so don't forget to subscribe to it if you want to join in on the Halloween fun.

Trick or Treat!: Your younger characters get a chance to join in on the Halloween fun.

Storybooks

Night of the Living Tagbook: You get a chance to go on a ghost hunt of your own.
