Halloween 2005

Halloween Masquerade 2005

Halloween. It's not exactly my favorite time of year. I work with exiles all day, but the freaks really come out at night at Halloween. Oh well, I guess the old saying applies: "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."


I'm not sure if this event was planned from the start by Monolith, or if this was an indication that SOE would be moving away from Live Events and more towards the types of events found in other MMO's. In any case, this was a lot of fun and something different from everyday game play. It was cool to dress up as some of these rarely seen characters, especially the Succubus.

It's ironic that I write this about the 2005 event while the 2006 event is in progress, because my subscription is not currently active. The MxO team has added some new stuff for this year, which makes it really tempting to reopen my account, but I just can't afford the time drain right now (real life). Besides new masks, zombies roam the city looking to spread their disease. Sounds like fun.
