Halloween Events Begin Early...

Post by Coops » Sun Sep 29, 2019 10:25 am

October is VERY nearly here - so let's get started. Today you will begin to see the Halloween Pumpkins appear as 'Play to Win' festive handouts. These come in the usual format of the pop-up message on screen at random times. The more you play in the periods between messages the more you will receive.

Special Halloween Exchange
I'm starting the hand out early. This is so you can begin to COLLECT the Pumpkins as they have a SPECIAL use this year! I have opened the Halloween Exchanges, this store is looking to take as MANY of the Pumpkins off your hands as you have.

They will pay you 1,000 XP per Pumpkin PLUS award you a Halloween Point. These points you can then use to Purchase Special PODS. These are pods ONLY created and available for the Halloween Festivities! You will only be able to gain them through the Exchange office and only trade for them in Halloween Points. So hand in ALL your pumpkins.

Of course in a sign of fairness, the pumpkins still retain their normal festive store value if you don't wish to take part in grabbing some great pumpkin Pods!

Festive NPC's Ready for Dispatch

I have revived the Festive Halloween NPC's from their year long hibernation sleep. I warmed them up and gave them all a strong coffee. They are now ready to begin their duty stations, handing out prizes in return for Pumpkins. They have also been given permission to inflate their handouts somewhat this year, so check them out.

Claim a Festive NPC
Why not get in early and claim a Festive NPC for your Settlement. I'm offering you the chance to ask for a festive NPC (chosen at random) to be added to your settlement for the Festive Period between now and the beginning of January. If you'd like one pop over to THIS POST can read the details and claim one.

Halloween Collection
As has become the norm these days I will be running my 'Collect one of each Pumpkin', then drop them off to me, for a festive special prize this year. You'll note we are also adding a Christmas Resource Token to that list! (not seen one click the previous link)

Make sure to READ fully and follow the instructions, you have LOTS of time so don't panic and the hand in remains open till the 5th of November. So lots of time for late player to player trades etc.

Halloween Hunt
I seeded over a 1,000 pumpkins that will be appearing on the Promenades you will be visiting over October. Note these down and report ONE to me via THIS competition post. You only need report one to be entered into a Special Prize Draw on the 1st of November. Prizes to be announced at the time :)

More Competitions and Events
As it's not even October yet (one day early) I have held in reserve a few extra competitions and events. So keep your eyes on the Forums, the game chat and the Game login news! You wouldn't want to miss out now would you!

Thanks for taking part in the Core-Exiles Universe and being such a Cool bunch of fellow Exiles!

Have fun folks!

A Walk in the Woods helps me relax and release the tension from a hard day at the code.
The fact that I'm dragging a body behind me should be irrelevant!
