As the full moon comes into view on Halloween night, it reflects an ominous reddish sheen. Scientists have explained away the moon’s strange appearance as a routine lunar event, but there’s something different about it this time. Reports of strange, even supernatural occurrences have taken grip over the populace… occurrences many are claiming connects to the moon’s strange appearance. Officials have decried these reports as little more than superstition brought on by the usual chaos of this particular holiday, trickery and deceit befitting the spirit of the season…
But could there be something more to this story?
A Blood Moon Takes Hold!During the month of October, players will be permitted to participate in the ‘Blood Moon’ event by posting in supernatural or holiday-themed threads. For the most part, the details of the spooky and weird happenings unfolding in these events will be up to the players. Everyone is free to engage with the world as they wish, as always. However, during this event, threads can be designated a part of the Blood Moon, allowing them to make use of special, additional modifiers. This is entirely optional, and players are under no obligation to participate.
These modifiers are:
- Oozaru and similar transformations can no longer be controlled, even with the requisite mastery.
- Devil Lamps are in automatic effect for all appropriate characters.
- Bio-Androids, Demons, Ghosts and Mazoku Caste Namekians receive a +1x modifier to all transformations.
- The effects of Holy Frail are applied to Shinjin in threads with Demons, and not the other way around. How the tables have turned!
- Get into the Halloween spirit! If you have a Handmade Costume, your free [N1] can be fired as an [UP2]. Even better, it still only costs 1 KP! You can only do this once per thread.
Of course, there are some necessary restrictions in place to go alongside this event. This is intended purely as a fun, side activity to help celebrate the holiday week. In order to make sure this doesn't affect site balance or get out of hand, the following rules will be enforced:
- These modifiers only apply in threads designated in the opening post as belonging to the Halloween event.
- Blood Moon threads can not be death-enabled. They can't be started as such and they cannot be turned into such part-way through the thread.
- Your thread has to be in keeping with the Halloween theme: this is broad, but you can't just claim a bonus to your transformation for some plain old sparring.
