The Halloween 2k10 event had a build up starting October 21, 2010, while the full event kicked off on October 26th. The title for the event was "Grave Danger". Gaians unite to repel the ghostly invaders.


OverviewEdit

Due to the effects of chemical waste Byproduct 2113 being dumped onto the graveyard grounds of the formerly named, Peaceful Meadow Cemetery. The product had formed a sub-soil barrier impenetrable to the souls of the dead. Those buried in the graveyard were trapped in the private hell of their slowly rotting corpse.

Michael J. Drink worked tirelessly to create an antidote of Byproduct 2113. However, upon discovering an antidote and spraying the contaminated areas, Micheal had not taken into account the psychological effects that years of confinement the spirits were subjected to. The antidote freed the spirits from their graves, but their anger grew.

It was up to Gaians to free the tortured souls by overpowering them.

Build-UpEdit

The theme of the event was revealed gradually, starting off in the GCD in a sticky thread with the mention of ghost. Gaians joined in and began speculating and stating some of their own knowledge about ghost. The late Johnny K. Gambino was even brought up in various postings fueling even more curiosity of the upcoming event.

When October 14th arrived ghostly NPCs began to appear around Gaia. Each had their own Gaia Journal and took the opportunity to type about themselves and their previous lives. Some appeared to be rather indifferent to being ghostly dead, while others were unaware or even distressed about it. By October 18th they made their presence more known by appearing in threads and posting among Gaians and even accepting friendship. However by October 20th the attitude of the apparitions appeared to get more disturbing as they chatted amongst themselves and accused humans of mocking them. With various thread postings they began to state vengeance.

  • Oct 18

A man known as The Gravedigger posted a warning to Gaians of the ghost. Stating that he could have possibly have had some part to play in their release, though his intention was to free them from their torment. He then compiled a catalog of the ghost, giving a small summary about each one. While he logged the ones he was aware of, he feared there were more lurking about.

Without seeing an official announcement, many Gaians found they they could Trick or Treat in Gaia Towns.

  • Oct 8 Official Gaia Halloween Thread [1]

October is here and it’s getting chilly outside. We’re bundling up over here at Gaia HQ, mostly because the stupid air conditioner is still cooling the office, but it is definitely getting colder outside. With the cold come comfort foods, toasty fires, and thoughts of Halloween. Speaking of Halloween, we’re happy to announce that we are definitely having a Halloween event this month! I’ve heard whispers from ghosts, but I don’t know what’s going on yet. Do you care to help me speculate? What would whispers from ghosts have to do with the Halloween event? What could that mean??

I think...I think we're safe here. These ghosts-- I can't get away from them! And they only seem to be getting stronger. Oh gods, here comes another...

Time is short. I need your help. Here: take this and read it. It explains how these ghosts came to be and why I am to blame for unleashing them. I only hope we're not too late-- or too weak-- to stop them.

Back! Back you hellbeast!


  • Oct 28 Prepare yourselves for GRAVE DANGER! [3]

By now you know of the ghostly apparitions plaguing Gaia, and my own shameful part in their release. The ghosts have been gaining power, and can no longer be ignored. If we are to save ourselves-- and free these poor, tortured souls-- we must fight them.

There are 18 lesser ghosts following the command of seven twisted ghost bosses. These bosses will be emerging throughout the event as the battle intensifies. They're much too powerful for any one Gaian to defeat alone, and thus the community must rally together to vanquish them. If all goes well, each boss won't survive long, so fight them while you can. If you helped defeat one, you should see a treasure chest appear where they once stood. It'll contain a reward for helping save Gaia from the torments of otherworldly rule.

The ghostly bosses are not to be taken lightly-- only the strongest can confront them. To ready yourself for the challenge, you'll need to hone your skills and abilities by fighting the lesser ghosts. These ghosts can still pack a punch, so don't forget to heal during battle. Good luck, Gaians!

Experience Grave Danger


  • Nov 03 A Scientific Breakthrough! [4]

I've just made an amazing discovery! With a new compound, I can partially reverse the warping effects of Byproduct 2113. In addition, I can exercise some effect on the direction the defeated ghosts take as they are set free from Byproduct 2113.

Since I could not have done this without you-- and since I abhor the arrogant megalomania of my father-- I want your opinions on what fate should befall each of the ghosts. Should they be dissolved into the great hereafter, sentenced to eternity in Hell Prison, or remain in this plane of existence in a new form?

[NPC] admin: AnnouncementEdit

  • Oct 28: zOMG Halloween Event: Jack's Back [5]

With Gaians everywhere fighting to dispel the horde of evil ghosts, Jack is none too pleased. The additional ghostly energy has amplified his power, but as Gaians continue to defeat the ghosts his grip is slipping. Now Jack has gone on the offensive in zOMG!, loosing tons of ghosts and sometimes appearing personally to defend them from do-gooder Gaians.

To continue the fight to save Gaia from ghostly invaders, head on over to zOMG!-- before it's too late.

Play zOMG!


Event ConclusionEdit

  • Nov 3

Ghost Farewells, Gaians decided what happens to the defeated ghosts. Each ghosts created a thread wherein they typed their apologize and feeling much better about themselves and others. The threads contained a poll with the choices:

  • Dissolve blissfully into the world beyond, losing all memory and identity
  • Serve a hard term in Hell Prison.

The third choice was in relation to ghosts' backstory, personality, and actions. This choice potentially would be a positive existence for the ghost or a negative one, depending on how they were viewed by the voter.

Criticism & Compliments:Edit

Gaians enjoyed the event build up, accumulation of Ghosts NPCs around the site, and OmniDrink's presence being expanded upon. The ghosts interacted with the community and even accepted friendship. However, upon discovering that the ghosts must be fought, some Gaians disapproved of this as they had grown attached their ghostly companions. This was smoothed over by informing the community that the ghosts were tormented and corrupted by Byproduct 2113, therefore fighting them to set them free was the right thing to do.

While the ghosts interaction was reminiscent to the arrival of the Zurg, some Gaians found the postings by a ghost to be spam or unintentional thread derailment. Other criticisms were the death stories of the ghosts, specifically [NPC] Chauncey who was considered to have the most tragic backstory.

When it came to the fighting game, the basic set up was easy to follow. But upon its release and merely a few hours of gameplay, some Gaians complained about the fighting being too hard and that defeating a ghost was difficult. In an attempt to please the Users who found the game difficult, some of the ghosts were given lower health, their attack damage diminished, and the frequency of their own attacks and healing lowered. While this made the fighting easier it caused more complaints by those who found it non-challenging.

The boss items were complimented for being unique and versatile, as each item related to a ghosts backstory. In comparison to previous Halloween events, the response to H2k10 was largely positive.

Glitches & ProblemsEdit

Hardly any issues or problems were a part of the H2k10 Event. Though similar to previous events, Users were let onto the event page a small amount at a time as to not overload the server. While battling some of the ghosts, there were reports of attacks not registering. All these were quickly corrected within a few hours.

TriviaEdit

  • This is the second Event OmniDrink was involved in, the first was their arrival during April Fools 2k9.
  • This is the third event to involve a variety of NPCs interacting with the community either by posting in threads or using other parts of the site that showed their activity, the previous events being H2k4, Xmas2k5, and H2k6.
