Imagine escaping a Witchlight just to run into these.


This is going to seem like overkill, but once I got the idea in my head, I couldn't stop. Response under spoiler, because I went nuts with it.

 

Spoiler

(Note: I can't remember if "Halloween" or "Trick or Treating" specifically exist in Valkemare, but I'm going to use those terms anyway. This is just for fun.)

 

You get ready to go Trick or Treating one year, wearing a nice costume you picked out a few weeks back.  But since you live a ways away from the nearest village, it'll be a long walk. First, you stop by the cave where you regularly see dragon eggs and hatchlings, and find that the lone egg sitting in a nest has been bitten and turned into a Vampire. You feel a bit sorry for the poor thing, but it's been known to happen, so you just walk off and leave the egg alone.

 

Your nearest neighbor grows pumpkins, so there are always Pumpkin dragons around this time of year, and you go to visit them and share some treats you've brought. They're friendly and cheer you up a bit, especially when one offers you its old pumpkin home (which it has since outgrown) to use as a lantern, knowing you'll be traveling alone through the dark forest. You thank it and place a candle you brought inside the pumpkin, planning to light it once the sun sets, and head for the forest path. On your way there, you spot a Grave dragon staring at you near the entrance to the woods. Since it's just a tiny hatchling that appears to have just barely grown its wings, you aren't very intimidated, but it does seem a little creepy the way it keeps staring until you disappear from its sight.

 

As you walk through the forest and pass a nearby cave, something lunges out at you! You stumble back, just out of reach of the Cavern Lurker that tried to ambush you. It makes a sort of grumbling noise as it retreats back to its den, not wanting to come out and try a second time when there's still too much light in the sky. Heart thudding, you quickly brush yourself off and hurry a little quicker down the path. In your haste, you accidentally bump into what seems to be thin air, but turns out to be a Shadow Walker that was materializing on the path. It apologizes and starts to fade from view again, but still leaves you feeling rattled nonetheless.

 

Up ahead, you see an Arcana who seems to be almost expecting you, saying that he knows about the human holiday you're celebrating this time of year and wants to give you some candy. You thank the friendly dragon and explain how you've already been spooked a little by your previous encounters. He explains that not everything is out to get you with a wink, and you laugh and agree as he drops a clawful of candy into the bucket you've brought. A short while later, when you go to pop a piece into your mouth and find that the "candy" was actually just pebbles and rocks disguised with magic, you realize that just because something isn't trying trying to kill you doesn't mean it won't have fun at your expense.

 

As you continue toward the forest, you notice a lot of the plant life seems to be withered and shriveled up. You know things tend to get like this during Autumn, but certain other plants and trees not far off seem to be doing fine, so you realize this might be the work of a Caligene. You decide to hurry faster on your way, but just then, you hear a skittering sound and find a Caligene already charging at you, ready to pounce! You scream and chuck the bucket at its head instinctively and it stumbles backward, dazed long enough for you to escape. Clearly this is not your day, but the only thing in that bucket were those useless rocks anyway, so you're grateful to have escaped with your life once again, figuring you can get something else to put your candy in at the village.

 

As the sun begins to set, you light the candle in your pumpkin lantern, trudging warily down the path. Every little sound now makes you jump. Spotting a large, leafless tree up ahead, you decide to sit down and rest a moment before pressing on. But before you have time to think, you hear the terrifying sound that makes you realize you've picked the wrong "tree" to rest under. You find yourself running for your life yet again as the Omen Wyrm barrels after you. There's only one hope. You dash to where a somewhat shallow but noisy brook cuts through the woods and dive in, swimming frantically to the other shore. The Omen Wyrm skids to a halt as it reaches the bank, angrily sounding its disapproval as you crash through the branches and underbrush in your haste to put as much distance between yourself and it as possible.

 

Once you're satisfied that it isn't following you, you collapse on the forest floor, a complete mess, dejected, cold, and scared. Your nice costume is now dirty, wet, and ripped, perhaps beyond repair. Swimming across the brook also extinguished the candle in your lantern and soaked your spare matches. It's dark and even though you've been to the village a million times before, it's going to be a challenge getting there now, especially when everything seems to be trying to attack you tonight. (And little did you realize that a Black Marrow had been eyeing you ever since you crawled out of the water, but seeing as you aren't dead yet, it's lost interest for now.)

 

Something moves to your left and you huddle fearfully in place, dreading what else might be waiting to grab you in the darkness. But then, you see the light of another lantern. It's being carried by a friend of yours from the village who had come to find you since you were taking longer than usual to show up. Distraught, you explain the horrible day you've been having to her, describing your one unbelievable misfortune after another while she pats your shoulder and tries to reassure you. She helps you up and guides you back to the main path, handing you her lantern and saying you should just keep walking. You're about to ask why she isn't coming, then you realize that her eyes, which should be brown, are actually a very unusual shade of green.

 

You take a few cautious steps forward, hoping she didn't notice that you caught on, but you hear the crunch of leaves as something walks away from you, a distant voice telling you to take care out there. A glance over your shoulder reveals those familiar spooky green lights fading into the night as the Witchlight leaves you. Another close call. You start to think that maybe this whole thing was a bad idea and you should just go home. You don't even care about candy anymore and your costume is ruined anyway. Using the new lantern, you circle around and try to take a shortcut back to your house, not wanting to risk encountering any of the other dragons that might still be waiting for you.

 

At long last, you estimate that you'll probably be out of the forest in about another fifteen minutes or so when you hear a loud SNAP behind you. It sounded almost like teeth gnashing together. Fearfully, you swing around with your lantern held high and spot an unfamiliar dragon. Its head starts to rise as it opens its jaws WIDE to try to swallow you up again, lunging! You run, it chases. You dodge, it swoops into the air and tries to dive-bomb you. Adrenaline pushing you on, despite your exhaustion, you dodge again and hurry faster, until you run right smack into something hard and heavy. Have you collided with a tree? No, worse, it's a Desipis, glaring down at you.

 

The Desipis thinks you might make a tasty snack, but the other dragon hasn't given up and roars its displeasure, ready for battle. The Desipis looks at it in annoyance, and rather than attempt to fight the conventional way, it immediately obliterates the sanity of the insolent peon who dares try to take its meal, sending the new dragon reeling into the woods, confused and delirious. The Desipis turns back to you, jaws opening wide, and you discover with horror that you're walking right toward its gaping mouth with those huge, horrible teeth. The dragon is controlling you and there's no way to escape. You're doomed.

 

Just then, another loud roar sounds in the distance. The Desipis glances over and spots a second Desipis in the distance, roaring again. It quickly forgets about you for now and charges to meet this upstart challenger with a furious roar of its own. You exhale loudly, heart thudding in your chest, and cautiously start to slink away, hoping you can escape unnoticed while the two dragons fight. A rustle in the underbrush catches your attention and you notice the same Witchlight from earlier watching from the shadows, realizing she has saved you once again. You quietly whisper your thanks and leave before the Desipis figures out its been fooled.

 

As you near the path to your house, you pass the Cavern Lurker's den again, but you fix it with a harsh glare and snap "Don't even THINK about it!", to which the annoyed creature gives a grumble of resignation, deciding to wait for something a little more unsuspecting to take as its prey.

 

When you arrive home, you lock and barricade all the doors in the house, change clothes, and collapse into bed, exhausted. You resolve that next year, you're simply going to buy a bunch of candy a few days in advance and gorge yourself stupid as you stay indoors reading horror tomes. You've already encountered enough "tricks" out there in the real world to last a lifetime.

Thank you. I kind of feel like a dork for it, but I kept imagining some poor soul constantly running into worse and more vicious dragons as the night wore on, then I decided to try to work in at least one of each Halloween dragon we have now, although some didn't fit in as well as I would have liked.

I love these dragons! Beautiful spritework (the colors :wub:) and wonderfully dark lore. I really like the unconventional wing-arm anatomy.

 

I don't understand the feedback that they don't look Halloweeny. The dingy colors, skull head, and hanging fur all make me think of a rotting corpse. I do agree that they would have made great drakes though, and also thought they might be from the hatchlings. Imagine them with howlers or tarantula hawks...

As someone who has absolutely zero feeling about Halloween in general, I don't even know what "Halloweeny" is or what a typical Halloween colour is supposed to be except "scary and magic" :D

I love it!  You did a fantastic job getting all the dragons to play the appropriate roles.

Hey all, the first AP'd Kohraki eggs are appearing! I automatically grabbed one without even thinking, lol.

I wonder how long the Halloween AP wall is going to last...


Right?! There’s a bunch of us trying to hatch the eggs but there are so many 😅💀

I love the wall. It can stay as long as it wants, lol. My first egg from it ended up misgendering though. Hoping the other hatchies have better luck!

If I remember correctly, the past two years the wall has broken on the 5th or 6th. According to last year's News thread it seems the wall started breaking during the first few hours of November 6th. So we probably have a ways to go yet. My AP'd breedings, done in the last two hours of the breeding window, are still above 3 days. The AP is currently at 2 days 13 hours.

I hope the AP wall will still be there another 5 hours. I have 10 hatchies growing up in the next 5 hours. Hoping to get some more bred Halloweens before they’re gone!

 

I’ve been watching the AP times, and it stays around 2 days 14 hours or so. So based on that, it appears we’re taking eggs at about the same rate they were bred. If people bred at the same rate through the end of Oct 31, then my estimate is the Halloween eggs will be gone tomorrow around noon. That’s when an egg bred 23:59 on Oct 31 will have 2 and a half days left.

My first two Kohrakis (is that the correct plural for Kohraki ? It looks a bit odd.) will grow up in just about an hour now and I will finally be unlocked again. Then spread over the next 21 hours I will have 14 more hatchies grow up and can do some serious hunting again if the wall is still there as they grow. I love low time AP eggs, but they do lead to serious hatchie lock!

 

Thanks again to TJ and all the others who worked on the event, the artists who created the Kohraki, and all the people who contributed Treats -- I loved the variety this year and there were so many really amazing ones. The game was a great way to waste time while scroll-locked and I miss it now! All in all a very satisfying Halloween. My only complaints had to do with the super bad lag and the very stingy egg drops on Halloween that made it hard to impossible for some players to get the eggs. If Halloween is a greedy, grab-all-you-can holiday then there should be enough eggs for everyone to grab!

These guys have a Celtic, pagan-like look to them mixed with wendigos; it's pretty awesome. The purple used in the shading is a nice touch too and shines on dark backgrounds. I prefer the female with her great linework, but he's got cooler antlers. Overall, a nice pair of flying purple people eaters.

 

Hope they look good in their lineage tiles. Not much time for DC Halloween stuff, but a spooky, horseradish-mustard wyvern sounds like fun to figure out for next year.

I just did the maths and eggs bred at the absolute last possible moment should be at about 2 days 22 hours 45 minutes right now, just in case anyone is interested. I'm predicting about another day of the wall based on that, although I can't be sure how many were bred. It might be less since that's only about a 9-10 hour gap between the current AP eggs and the last possible ones.

I'm scroll-locked for another ten hours.  I hope there will be a chance to grab a last few HW eggs.  

It's been a pretty good holiday, even though my haul wasn't as large as last year's, and I didn't get around to some 2gs I wanted to breed. I'll make them a priority next year.

Thank you TJ and Spriters!

I really like being around for the end of the wall, when the super-low-time regular eggs show up, when the hatchlings show up, etc. Really really hope I won't miss it while I'm sleeping. (Also, omg why so many 2g Arcanas?? Seems like every single one I pick up is 2g, doesn't anyone breed CB to bred anymore? *pokes AP*)

Stalking the AP now, even though I'm egg-locked... :P

I feel like I'm seriously neglecting my other Halloweens by only ever picking up (or breeding) 2G Caligenes... but I can't help it, I just love Caligenes so much. :wub: Also, I can't believe I totally forgot I didn't have ANY frozen Witchlights in my collection... now I have to scramble to get a full set of them before the wall is gone.
