[colour=#ff8c00]Nightmare Night, what a fright!

Give us something sweet to bite![/colour]

All across Ponyville (and Equestria), foals, fillies, colts, and foals at heart are all in the spirit of the season as they are costumed and trick or treating around town. Festivities abound and from one end to the other ponies are having fun.

Bahhhh!

Nightmare Night is about fear, being scared, and yes, candy! Are you brave enough to engage in the traditional Nightmare Night games and brave the spookiest, scariest locations in the land in search of treats? Even the most stout-heated of ponyfolk may feel a twinge of fear, and the result of your expedition may not be what you were dreaming of...

Here's the game, and everypony has to play! Well, not if you don't want to-but where's the fun in that? Here's how it works:

There are five locations, and each night of the event you may choose to trick-or-treat at one location. Each night, a different character will appear at a random location, and you will be either tricked, or treated! The object of the game is to be treated the most times, and end up with the most candy by the end.

Basic Rules:

  • Once you pick a location for that 'night' (one location per two RL days), you may not be active in a different location until the next night!
  • Each night you can choose a different location to try your luck at, or choose to revisit the same one you visited the previous night-but you may only trick-or-treat at one location per night!
  • You may have two characters participate, but not in the same topic on any given night.
  • Each topic is open for 72 hours. To Trick-or-Treat for that day you must choose one location and RP your chosen character (OC or Cast) within that thread during the first 48 hours!
  • At 11:59pm (US Pacific time) every other day, each topic will be visited by a mystery character, and all the ponies present will be tricked or treated accordingly. New threads will open up at 12:00am the day after, starting the next night to be RPed! Be sure not to miss a night, and try to get as many candies as possible!

This event will run from October 30th until November 11th. This topic is for questions, comments, and some OOC chatter.

You never know which character will show up in which thread. Its always random! At close to midnight each night, a post will be made for each character who has visited a thread. Every post after an event character will NOT be counted towards candy- since the topic has already been trick or treated. Each thread will stay open only 24 hours after it has been visited by its mystery character for you to RP your reaction. Once it is closed, it is closed for good!

wouldn't it be better if they had their own section in the special RP events section instead of the Greater Equestria section?

makes them easier to find too

It definitely would, but unfortunately it can't be done. The unofficial event was a little last minute, and as such there are no awards or an advertisement banner prepared. In addition, staff protocol dictates that all events be finished two weeks prior to their scheduled date. As it's the day before Halloween, it's a little late for that. Advertising, on site pre-event and possibly off-site, would also need to be done. It would also require an Admin to set up the forum. There's just a lot of work that goes into an 'official' event, and SteelEagle and myself didn't get seriously started on this until a bit late for that.

How many nights are there going to be total, 4 or 5?

Whoops, sorry I didn't get to this question until now.

Let's see, this goes for 14 days, there are three days per location with one overlap day, so it's more like two days each... There are 7 days listed on the chart...

7 nights!

All the scores through Day 4 are up. Please let me know if there are any mistakes. :)

Fate's post wasn't recorded for Day 4.

Also, while the score as of day 3 is correct at 2, the change brought by Discord for Fate on that day was +2 rather than the +1 recorded in the chart, according to this post.
