It's the month of All Hallow's Eve once again, and Stonewall Fleet will be continuing its six year tradition of holding spooky festivities to mark the occasion! This year, we're expanding the typical one day event to run multiple horrifying events throughout the month, and with that, I declare #FrightFest ALIVE! We'll be running fun little events here, in the forums, each week leading upto our big Fright Night, which will take place on Saturday, October 27! Be sure to join us for all of the Fright Fest activities and we hope to see you on the 27th for "Fright Night", our full-day event!
EVENT ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27: The Fright Fest activties throughout the month will culminate in our big Fright Night event on October 27th! For the last few months, I've locked myself in a cellar, conjuring up just the right spell to resurrect Stonewall's annual "Halloween #FrightNight18" for the SIXTH consecutive year! Fright Night is the annual gathering of Stonewall Fleet, armada members and friends (living or dead), for a series of spooky, Star Trek themed events, in honour of All Hallows' Eve: the galaxy's most horrifying holiday! Among the events that we're hosting are: the Star Trek Halloween Trivia Experience, Trek themed Halloween Bingo, a Halloween Costume Contest, and Stonewall's EPIC, original event: "Trellium Catastrophe", among others! Naturally, we're giving away Stonewall Credits as event prizes, which can be redeemed at the Stonewall Credits Store for amazing in-game ships and swag! We're also giving away some other unique items for the winners of the Trellium Catastrophe event! See the event schedule below for details on each event! See you all there... if you dare!
|Opening Ceremonies: Gathering of the Ghouls |
[12:00 PM - 12:15 PM EDT or click here for your timezone]
We'll start our ghoulish gathering at Stonewall Fleet's K-13 Space Station, since to hold a Halloween event, there would be no better location. Here, in the eerie and dilapidated halls of Starfleet's long forgotten past, we'll kick off the day's events with a quick speech, once we've all there amassed. Come alone or bring some friends and we'll flood the PvE queues before the night descends, as we prepare for a full day of spooky, Halloween-themed events!
|Group PvE Mission Runs |
[12:15 PM - 1:15 PM EDT or click here for your timezone]
We're going to set the mood for the day by digging up some of the spookiest PvE missions that we can find in the long forgotten depths of the queues! Together, we'll dust-off and brave these scary missions with our fellow fleet and armada members! Don't worry if we choose some missions that you haven't run in a while, as we'll have highly skilled volunteers on-hand to lead each five Captain team to certain victory!*
*Admiral @Zander_Hawk of our legal department has advised us to clarify that the phrase "certain victory" is not intended to imply any actual chance of success.
|Fright Night Bingo Event |
[1:30 PM - 3:00 PM EDT or click here for your timezone]
Once we've finished destroying the PvE queues, we'll be running TWO back-to-back Star Trek themed bingo games! Round one will be Star Trek villain themed while the second round will be Holodeck Adventures and Alternate Persona themed, to leave you with a good, Halloween Fright Night scare! Those of you who have played in our bingo events before, know how it works: everyone will be given a link to their own, unique, web-based bingo card that can be accessed through your browser or tablet. We'll call out clues to the characters on your bingo card, and you'll mark off the icons on your card that match the clues that are called! The first to achieve different bingo combinations will win prizes!
|Horrifying Halloween Costume Contest |
[3:30 PM - 5:00 PM EDT or click here for your timezone]
The Horrifying Costume Contest is one of our favourite events from all of the previous years. We've scheduled a break in-between events to give you time to hit the tailor and create some stunning entries for this contest! As always, our costume contest will have FIVE different categories and your Captain can enter as many or as few of the categories as you like! A winner for each category will be chosen by a panel of judges; that means FIVE chances to win best costume in any of our fun award categories! See the second post in this thread for our costume contest categories and prizes. We saw some amazing entries last year, and we're excited to see the creativity of our fleet members again, this Halloween! Remember: the best entries are usually those who create a costume ahead of time, so think about your costume ideas in advance!
|Terrifying Trek Trivia Event |
[5:30 PM - 7:30 PM EDT or click here for your timezone]
Something is wrong... VERY wrong. Something has happened to the Emergency Gameshow Host Hologram (Mark II), and those of you who have joined us for Stonewall's infamous Trek Trivia experience in the past, will find that there are some horrifying changes in store for them. The whole thing is really quite classified and I'm not even authorized to tell you what I already have... just come prepared. As always, you'll want to be sure to join us for this AMAZING event, even if trivia isn't your forté; it's about the experience of this epic event and slower typers will find that there are some new changes to the game that might help them dispatch our typically high scoring players! This audio event is held both in-game and on Discord, but you're not required to speak in order to participate. You won't want to miss this amazing fun!
|Trellium Catastrophe Team Challenge|
[8:00 PM - Onwards EDT or click here for your timezone]
Trellium Catastrophe (newly re-designed this year) is our flagship event and the last event of our Halloween Fright Night! In this event, we'll get you to pair up with a friend (or we'll help you find a teammate), and we'll take you on a guided, ground-based, haunted-house style foundry mission. You and your partner will be given a handful of objectives to complete and the teams that complete this creepy mission the fastest, will win amazing prizes! Each member of the fastest team will win 2,500 ZEN in addition to Stonewall Credits! The average speed of completion for the mission is a short, 17 minutes of terrifying fun! It's highly recommended (though not required), that you and your partner join us on Discord for the duration of the run for background music and sound effects that make this an immersive experience! Check out the trailer for this event, below!
