As the days grow shorter and the mischievous night creeps in, you stumble along cobbled streets toward the light of an inn. Beckoned inside by a welcoming bunch, they tell you grand stories and pour you some punch! There are whispers amongst them and overeager smiles, as your vision goes dark you hear they’ve stalked you for miles. And as you awake in a basement—your hands bound in chains—you ponder the green goo being pumped into your veins.
You think back to your childhood and the tales of Jack Shade, of the Angel, the struggle, and the price they all paid. Your mem’ries are lost by a sharp, distant scream; you shut tight your eyes and hope this is a dream. But a man clears his throat, his suit dark and sleek, top hat standing tall as he leans in to speak. He grins at your panic, his brown eyes aglow, and speaks in a cadence both eager and slow. “Don’t worry, dear guest, it’s much worse than it sounds. You’re just another dweller in ol’ Quiet Downs.”
Gather ‘round one and all for an announcement to hear: the celebration of Shade’s Eve is once again near! Be wary of your travels, and check under the bed, it might be a party but there’s still plenty to dread. There are tons of new toys and plenty of rewards to achieve, so mark it down: October 19 is the start of Shade’s Eve!
