A Halloween Masquerade was held at the Von Helson Manor, outside of the manor was a menacing black creature that appeared to be a wolf. As it turns out it was a werewolf, the result of a Gaian using the trial version of Gro-Gain Max, the wolves terrorized the party and the town.

Build-UpEdit

On October 20, the Manga update 55 The Masquerade showed Ian and Louie trying to plan a lavish Masquerade to celebrate Halloween, only finding that the citizens of the towns were terrified of what might happen due to past Halloween events.

[NPC] Louie Von Helson: AnnouncementEdit

File:Avatar Louie 2k10.png

  • Oct 24 Join me for a Halloween Masquerade! [1]

At last, Halloween has arrived! A holiday dedicated to frightening fun and ghastly pleasure-- my favorite! Best of all, there are no on-going disasters or crazed invaders: no aliens, no zombies, no ghosts, no vamp-- well, there are still vampires, but we're on our best behavior.

Yes, it looks like I will finally get to celebrate Halloween with the masquerade ball I've always wanted-- it will be simply marvelous! All Gaians are invited, provided you wear appropriate attire. Seriously, dress well-- this is going to be fanciest ball Gaia has ever seen. And nothing could possibly go wrong!

Don your finery and join me for the masquerade of a lifetime!

Join the Masquerade


The Halloween spirit has infected Gaia's shopkeepers-- not like a virus or anything, there are absolutely no viruses this year-- and they're giving out candy from their stores. You should swing by-- they've put a lot of work into their outfits and you don't want to miss it!

Go Trick or Treating


[NPC] Labtech Gene: AnnouncementEdit

  • Oct 27 Try the NEW AND IMPROVED Gro-Gain Max! [2]

Hello, Gaians!

For the past several years, I've been hard at work on a revolutionary new wonder drug called Gro-Gain Max.

Gro-Gain Max is not to be confused with the original Gro-Gain, an unstable hair-loss drug which tended to cause slight insanity and uncontrollable hair growth. I myself was a victim of Gro-Gain's ravages, which is precisely why I sought to improve and refine the drug to eliminate all negative side effects.

Gro-Gain Max is still in the early testing stages, but it already shows incredible promise: not only does it cure baldness, it sharpens the senses, improves the physique and invigorates the constitution. It washes away common colds, cures lower back pain and dissolves kidney stones. It's totally safe* and effective for both men and women.

This trial is nothing more than a mere formality before me and my business partner bring Gro-Gain Max to market. We've chosen the Halloween Masquerade to debut this wonder drug so everyone can immediately see its beneficial effects. Take a pill now and start living the vigorous Gro-Gain Max lifestyle!

Try Gro-Gain Max!
  • Gro-Gain Max may cause minor side effects, including nausea, upset stomach, headache, temporary fatigue, joint pain, disorientation, hairmouth, nocturnal triumph, sensitivity to sound, bowel cramping, the giggles, lecherous leg syndrome, oral burpies, inappropriate truthfulness, day terrors, lycanthropy, migraine, flat affect, tenderness, tingling in the extremities, dizziness and irregular heartbeat. Please consult your doctor if these side effects become intense, unbearable or permanent. Do not discontinue use of Gro-Gain Max.

Louie has finally turned the tide in the massive werewolf brawl that tore up the Masquerade! Now that things have calmed down, anyone who participated in the event can visit the Halloween Event Page to pick up their final item:

Visit the Moonrise Page


Curious how humanity got the upper hand? A full manga account of Ian's brave battle against Evil Timmy is coming soon!

If you haven't had your fill of trick-or-treating, you've still got one more week to grab some candy. And now that Louie has cleaned up the mess over at the Masquerade, it'll remain open for a few more days of classy, conflict-free partying. Have fun!

Glitches & ProblemsEdit

As no event on Gaia has ever gone on without glitches, Here is the 2k11 Halloween event Glitches.

Glitches: Site & ForumEdit

  • Minor issue with trick-or-treating in shops, the last item was not granted, there was an adjustment to have the item grant to those who did not complete their toting.
  • During the forum game of Moonrise, some users reported that their attacks did not register, or that their level gaining jumped from one level to another. The total level to reach was 10, an error caused this to go past 10.

Glitches: Gaia TownsEdit

Dev AlertsEdit

Event Launching

Hey guys, just fyi I'm still in the process of launching Trick or Treating and the pre-event stuff.

I'm taking my time because a lot of old code has been updated. If you notice anything weird with the shops or towns trick or treating, worldmap, or the event forum, please report it in the Bug Reports & Technical Support forum and give it some time.

  • Oct 25

Trick-or-Treat Boo-boo

It looks like I forgot a Trick or Treat item.

Due to a miscommunication between myself and the art team (internal miscommunication... nothing new there right ), one of the trick-or-treat items was missing from the set.

Sadly I can not go back and retroactively grant it to those who already completed trick-or-treating, however I did increase the replay cap so that those who choose to play again will be able to claim it.

Anyone playing for the first time, or those who hadn't yet completed trick-or-treating, will be granted the item as expected.

  • Oct 26

Primary Event Start

I'm currently activating the main event, please be patient while I get things setup.

EDIT 11:34

Still in the process of launching and fixing things in the event. We're currently investigating a problem with death in the Masquerade space. An announcement will be made when I'm satisfied with the state of the event.

  • Oct 26

Event Status

Hey guys, we're still making changes and fixes to the event. Here's what we've done so far...

FIXES

1. Fixed issue with Masquerade space where deaths were not occurring.
2. Fixed skill use bug where skills uses were not properly being tracked.
3. Fixed protected state bug where some users would not leave the protected state if they attacked other users.
4. Fixed title display bug where users couldn't see if someone was dead or in a protected state.
5. Fixed achievement bug where achievements were only registering if you made a heal. (...don't ask...)

What's being worked on

1. Having friends not properly applying modifier
2. Making level gains based on successful attack/heal instead of kills (will also fix heal bug where you won't level through healing)
3. Stats not being tracked correctly on landing page for humans.
4. Joining event for first time through Masquerade space only puts you on human side.
  • Oct 27

Event Status 2

Hey guys, made a bunch of fixes. Here's what we've done so far...

FIXES: 1

1. Fixed issue with Masquerade space where deaths were not occurring.
2. Fixed skill use bug where skills uses were not properly being tracked.
3. Fixed protected state bug where some users would not leave the protected state if they attacked other users.
4. Fixed title display bug where users couldn't see if someone was dead or in a protected state.
5. Fixed achievement bug where achievements were only registering if you made a heal. (...don't ask...)

FIXES: 2

1. Friends now properly apply bonus attack modifier.
2. Level gains based on successful attack/heal instead of kills
3. Stat tracking corrected on landing page for humans and wolves. (kills/heals broken for humans, energy display broken for both teams.)
4. Joining event for first time through Masquerade space will now properly divide the chances of what team your on in half.
5. Item grant tied to successful ability use instead of kills. (Every successful skill use yields a chance to get granted a component)
6. Fixed pass by reference value not passing by reference, which resulted in broken player data.
7. Updated Sparkledog image, he/she...it? ...had too many legs!

What's being worked on

1. Due to the corruption of some players data. I will write a script that will bring the data stored in the database in sync with what is being saved in our temporary data cache. Anyone who is above level 10 will be reset to 10 (10 is the level cap) and will have the opportunity to add the correct number of abilities to their ability list.
2. I intend to make leveling individual skills easier. Currently it appears to be to hard to do so.
3. Sometimes the javascript animation fails to animate the health bar dropping/raising.

Heading home for now, expect more updates tomorrow.

  • Oct 27

Event Status 3

Additional fixes/changes...

FIXES: 3

1. Made it so you can't delete your own posts in the event forum
2. Fixed broken heal achievement; was trying to reference an array element that didn't exist.
3. Fixed broken ability selection in IE7 & 8
4. Fixed broken change team skills which were allowing people to attack and change the team of a player w/o killing them.

What's being worked on

1. Anyone who is above level 10 will be reset to 10 (10 is the level cap) and will have the opportunity to add the correct number of abilities to their ability list.
2. Survivor achievement only checked and granted after 24 hours and after performing a skill. Should be checked on each forum page load.
3. I intend to make leveling individual skills easier. Currently it appears to be to hard to do so.
4. Sometimes the javascript animation fails to animate the health bar dropping/raising.

I can no longer delay in announcing the event. So I will proceed with the remainder of the launch. Once that is done I will then finish and execute the script to correct the players above level 10, then as time allows I'll start making the additional changes mentioned above and in the forums.

  • Oct 28

Event Fixes

Additional fixes/changes...

FIXES: 4

1. Anyone above level 10 has been reset to the levl cap of 10. (Note: there may be some outliers not reset, we'll get to them as we can.)
2. All achievement checks moved to event forum page load, this fix should correct the many missing achievement grants. (Note: the checks are run on the skills for the team you are currently on, you will have to switch teams if the skill uses are registered on a skill from the opposite team.)
3. Leveling skills made easier.
4. Fixed issue with skills following you when you change teams. You should not be able to use human attacks if you are a wolf etc. This fix works by removing the skills that don't belong on the current team your on. (Note: does not remove the skill from the opposite team, if you change teams that teams skills will still be there.)
5. Fixed event NPCs not displaying correct avatar image in forums.

What's being worked on

1. Some users have duplicate skills from previous bugs.
2. Javascript animation fails to animate the health bar dropping/raising. (the attacks/heals still work, you just have no visual notification, only the text at the bottom.)

H2k11 Event Ending

The H2k11 Moonrise event will be ending tonight at midnight, tomorrow the final item grant will be available from the event page for about a week. I'll also likely leave the masquerade space up so people can collect the first alchemy item if they missed it.

I'll see if I can get an announcement out when the final event item is ready to be claimed, otherwise keep your eyes on the dev notices.

  • Nov 09

Final Event Item

...Is currently available!!! Head on over to the event page to claim it. (Note: Only available to those that participated in the Moonrise part of the event.)

Tomorrow at midnight trick or treating and the final item grant for the h2k11 event will be turned off and the event forum archived. If you haven't already head over to the event page for your item grant. (Available only to those that participated in the Moonrise part of the event.)

TriviaEdit

  • The whereabouts of T-Bone and Gene were revealed with this event.
  • For this event trick-or-treating functioned similar to Halloween of 2003 and 2004. It required Gaians to collect candy from shops and then use the World Map to find Jack and then receive an item.
  • Gro-Gain Max is supposedly a new form of Gro-Gain, an Evolving Item.
  • This is the first event that took place inside the Von Helson Manor, a previous mansion owned by the Von Helson's in Durem was used for Easter.
  • This is the second event that involved the Gaia Item Alchemy system to be used to create event items.
  • This is the sixth time for the Quote Transmitted Disease to appear. Getting bitten by a werewolf had a percentage chance of being turned into one.
