ABOUT

Come one, come all to The King and Queen's Horrorween! Tyria's oldest community event returns to the Guild Wars franchise for it's 12th consecutive year.
The Snowman King on behalf of her majesty Mad Queen Malafide cordially invites you all to attend this grand Halloween caper, it is sure to fright and delight!
Featuring the famous costume contest, live in-game bands and fan favourite activities you have all come to know and love! It is not be missed, there is something for everyone.


A MESSAGE FROM THE HOST

I am Frozenwind, The Guardian of Dhuum and Regent of the Ice Wastes.
At times I am reminded of Ogden Stonehealer, like he I am the last of my line - we both feel our age.
I remember the ancient times of truly magical events and the spirit the community has when it's putting it's best foot forward.
I have seen many faces come and go over the years and I cherish the memory of every event I have ever made.
So I posit to the Guild Wars community, would you join a fading Snowman in one last hurrah to honour that memory and the legacy this event has?


FAQ

    Best male, female, and "Ugly Stick" win special prizes and maybe something exclusive from the gem store! Dress your spookiest!

    THE COMMUNITY SPIRIT AWARD
    We have a Legendary prize in store for one Tyrian (but it is a secret, and anyone who knew about the prize has been buried alive).
    Simply attend the event to have a shot at this prize.

    SCAVENGER HUNT
    A masterfully witty scavenger hunt to re-build the Wickerman, presented in five stages throughout the pre-event.

    If you use a free account for the event - great! It has no impact on your raffle number on your main account as they are separate!
