Howdy folks, So I did have an idea I was putting together for a bit of a Halloween role play, but my classes said "F That!" and now I'm a bit more pressed for time than usual. Anyhow, I still enjoyed the idea of a spoopy Halloween role play to really rattle our bones. If anyone's interested feel free to reply with your ideas or suggestions here, I'm actually excited to see what we can collectively churn out.
*Updated! Oct 28th!* Allright, everypony- all systems and contests are go! Be sure to check out the prizes thread here!: *Updated! Oct 15th! - Again!* The Harvest Spook-Tacular has been set up, and the gates have been opened for everypony to flood on in and enjoy! The Harvest Festival will run for 3 weeks, until November 5th! At that time no new topics can be made. However, you can still post in the open topics to finish up your Rp up until the 14th of November (a monday morning). This gives a total of a little over 4 weeks to enjoy RP'ing the Harvest-Spook-Tacular itself! There will be another RP event that occurs during the festival, the mysterious Nightmare Night! Nightmare night is a single spooky night filled with stories of the spooky and unnatural- it is filled with darkness and mystery, and its own powerful association with the night! Many ponies consider it just that, a legend, and it has become a festive occasion to honor the night, where foals and ponies of all ages go out celebrate the night with costumes, candy- and of course, parties! Even though Nightmare Night encompases only one night- We will be having a special trick-or-treat event to celebrate this holiday that will take place between the nights of October 28th through November 3rd. There will be awards and prizes with this event- so don't miss out! Its going to be awesome! You can find the Harvest Spook-Tacular thread and a description of all the RP'able locations here! I need to run a few errands right now- but I will be posting up the contest forums within the next few hours so that everypony can start submitting their works and get any questions they might have answered! You can submit your art pieces for the art contest (and find the rules) here! Likewise, you can submit your written pieces for the writing contest (and find the rules) here! Its going to be a great festival everypony! Looking forward to seeing everypony there! *Original Post* Eyup! You heard right! I hope everyone has had a nice first week to settle into October- I know that here the cold winds and rainy days are beginning to pick up, and that means very very very long days at work as a barista for me, but I can't blame everypony- I'm feeling the need for a hot sweet-drink too this time of season! So if those cold mornings are creeping into your neck of Equestria- break out those scarves and wind-breakers and enjoy the fall weather! Its time to celebrate the harvest season! Here at Canterlot, we've got a lot planned for everypony starting October 15th, 2011: The Great Harvest Spook-tacular RP event! The Harvest Spook-tacular is a celebration of the autumn harvest season in Equestria! There will be a huge street fair and festival, a corn maze, haunted house, many other locations to explore, and lots of ponies (and other creatures) dressing up! Nightmare Night! During the Harvest Spook-tacular there is the ever-famous Nightmare Night, a night (one RP/Event week) shrouded in mystery, candlelight, and darkness- but that doesn't stop ponies from all over from visiting their favorite locations to trick-or-treat! But be careful- many spooky legends surround Nightmare Night- you never know what kind of scary-or wonderful- things you might find at night! Beware all ponies who venture out of town and into the night! Contests! Yes, contests! TWO to be precise! We will be holding an art contest and a writing contest that will be open for submission starting the 15th! However, you can get started NOW!
