Brave warriors!

 

The Median Night festival is the favorite event of the year for many of you, and we know it. So we're giving you an unique opportunity to win the the most valuable Caches of the World of the Dead while making the most of this exciting experience! And to spice things up, there is a complete new story below to inspire our best writers! 

 

“For the record: I don’t mean to stick my nose in couple issues. But I can’t watch the joyful Katrina mourning the man day after day while missing all the fun in the Horror Circus! After all, can you stand for this?! Hurry up and deliver this gift to the bride before it’s too late! Actually, take half of the payment in advance, you might need some incentive to handle that lady’s temper!

 

You sure heard the story of the Master of the crossroads, but the one I’m about to tell shall remain between us for the sake of our lives. Come closer, my friend. And listen carefully, this is the untold story of la Katrina:

 

The forever young gypsy was always busy entertaining everyone with her dancing and fortune-telling, the truth is: few knew her past and she never really talked about it. Long ago, Katrina had been condemned by witchcraft, and she ran away leaving all she ever cared about behind to make her way alone in this world.

 

As time went by, deep down even the fearless adventurer dreamed of a place to belong. She had loved Baron Saturday ever since she could remember. So Katrina decided to marry him, giving up all for her precious love, ready to take him to have and hold with all his faults and strengths to be by her side until death do them apart.

 

Baron Saturday wasn't fond of traditions, to say nothing of love. But Katrina changed the man. Rumor has it that the she bewitched her "Valentino" on their first date, who turned into the perfect gentleman, buying her favorite flowers, writing love poems and even serenades.These fairy tale was just too good to be true -- Well, you probably heard the rest of the story, didn't you?!

 

Death envied them and decided to break it apart. But here it gets interesting:

 

Death made an irrefusable counter offer to Baron Saturday in exchange for his loyalty. But because Katrina had offered all she had to her betrothed, her offer was proportionally bigger in value becoming a debt which death would never be able to cover, the pact can't be sealed until she forgets her unrequited love. Until then, death can’t prevent Baron to find his way back to Katrina and the fate remains unsure. Baron Saturday may visit both worlds, but he must always return to the crossroads, to remind him of the day he chose his path without her, and remind him that Katrina's love still lives.”

is it possible to write in on a language different than English (Italian for example) if it is written on a correct form so it can allow to easily translate it? 

Sure thing. Go for it! :happy:

Os Heróis ancestrais decidiram pregar
Uma peça na Katrina de se arrepiar
O plano principal era á aprisionar
Na tumba de Lá Llorona para nunca mais a encontrar
Mas não contavam com o Barão sabadeiro
Em sua invasão ele enfraqueceu os selos
Logo Katrina batalhou o dia inteiro
E na primeira brecha conseguiu escapar
A batalha agora é para tentar a aprisionar
Junte todos os membros da sua guilda
Batalha de arrepiar na tumba de Lá Llorona
Com recompensas de se espantar esse é o Halloween
Melhor evento do ano e mais assustador sim
Vou desejar não encontrar com nenhuma bruxa não
Caso contrário vou me arrepiar esse é o halloween do Barão.

When is the announcement of winners?

 

It might take a bit more days. I think to have seen admins speaking of the 13th of December on the Russian side. Can't say if here it will be the same.
