The Ides Of March
CAVETE IDES MARTIAE!
O conspiracy! Sham'st thou to show thy dangerous brow by night, When evils are most free?
Beware the Ides of March!
Some people say on March the 15th something very evil happened in Ackland Mall, such an unspeakable act of inhumanity that the place is forever marked. Now every time the same stars align as on that damned day every evil twisted soul, every black hearted monster is drawn to this place. They don’t know the wherefore’s and the whys, but they will come and they will destroy the place and kill everybody inside. Beware the Ides of March!
Others tell the story of an ancient powerful PKer who turned on his own people, becoming the first Bounty Hunter in post-apocalyptic Malton. His reign of tyranny and betrayal was ended in the Upper Left Corner of Ackland by the hand of a group of PKers. To honour this day Pkers from everywhere in Malton gather in Ackland to celebrate the Ides of March.
Maybe the Stories are true or maybe it is just a play of Shakespeare’s famous Julius Caesar was going horribly wrong and the very excitable audience, like hooligans of education, were tearing the place apart.

The Ides of March?
Generally speaking, a term from the ancient Roman calendar. The Ides fell on the 15th day of March, May, July, or October or the 13th day of any other month. Thus the Ides of March was the 15th day of March.
The term Ides has real meaning only in the Roman Calendar, which was displaced by the Julian Calendar in 46 BC. However, the term was still used in a vernacular sense for centuries afterwards to denote the middle of the month.
Specifically, the term is best known because Julius Caesar was assassinated on the Ides of March in 44 BC – the story of which was famously retold in William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. In modern times, it has come to mean a foreboding of doom
