Subject line says it all. Anyone up for the Halloween bash challenge?

Thank you Hawumph for opening this topic up. I wanted to say something about it but was diffident after the roasting I got last year. As you have kicked it off, I feel a little safer.

Each year I try to swamp the paintings from inside Dracular's House (or Vlad III as he is sometimes known). These paintings are very valuable and very heavy. I have yet to prise one off the wall. Last year I had the help of one player and they still could not be got. Can I please put in a plea for more help from a number of players this year. If it cannot be done with several players, I will give up.

It will be interesting to see what the Gaia costume is like!

Hopefully I can make it - with all the clock changes the bash is now at 10am Friday morning here! A few weeks back it was 8am which is so much easier

I have never really thought about it but I suppose when we put our clocks back an hour you must put yours forward. Hence the two hour difference.

Great bash, lots of fun, thanks for organising it Haw!

I did the Leprechaun task. Which mainly involves knowing how to spell Leprechaun.

*You hear sinews tearing, as Laura the spooky necromancer hits the
leprechaun.
You have killed the leprechaun.
You have completed another Task. This makes a total of 2.
(+100 = 32,503).
(+19 = 32,522).

It was GREAT! Some highlights from my side were:

*g suit.wear it
Pint sized pixie suit taken.
*As you don the suit, a waft of fresh air clears your lungs.

*You hit the phantom of the opera (10-14).
You have killed the phantom of the opera.

Almost being taken down by the piglet.

Being stalked by the hooded grim reaper toy.

Meeting the pumpking and pumpqueen.

Working on telepathy and mimicry:
(*)"door open
You can't utter a word, you're dumb.
*Classical ruin.
A crisp white Joejitzu costume lies here. Standing here is a lifelike statue
(statue2) of a woman.
*Loucypher the kooky warlock asks "ptrs?".
*"ptrs?
Bluestone the kooky necromancess asks "ptrs?".

I missed the Gaia mask (was it somehow on the ladder shaft? ), but saw quite a few others.

Lots of fun!

ach you know I canna be bothered adding anything,

main thing is that we won (thanks to some very kind ArchWiz intervention), Laura was right about the decreasing quality of bash reports, all my characters are going to be renamed Kenny (from South Park) and I am going to resign from bashes (just kidding).

btw _ I got Kenny going well a little later (ie 12 hours or so) but guess what - he died to the dragon!

Enjoyed trying on the suits and bobbing for apples - actually got an apple!!!

Looking forward to the fireworks on the 5th!

*med
You feel a great tranquillity filling your being, which subsides gradually as you cease your meditation and learn that you are in a strange place...
Outer sanctum.
A piece of paper lies here. A pin-striped suit, bearing a subtle ---- motif, lurks here.

Btw Royston..... I believe that dracula's mansion is just a quest that a wiz coul lo
ad at any time - it doesn't have to be Halloween. Why not talk nicely to a wiz and maybe organize a quest night to try to get that painting?
