Samhain Slaughter 6(66)
|Representatives of the following groups took part in this event:
In the times of yore, the Celtic peoples of the British Isles celebrated Halloween in a very different way. Instead of candy and costumes there was vast amounts of feasting, harvest, and huge fires. Livestock were slaughtered and preserved in preparation for winter, people and livestock were purified by fire, and vast pagan worship was observed. Today, the world has commercialized and bastardized glorious Samhain. To cleanse the sacred day of Samhain, we have slaughtered in Marven and given back to the glorious pagan gods in October of 2012. Bonfires were lit that night and the festivities were merry. Allied PKers used the flames of these fires to light their own individual hearths from a common flame, thus bonding our families together for a stronger future.
Continuing the tradition
Following the footsteps of the past Halloween PKer events, Samhain Slaughter 6(66) saw the return of allied PKers coming together for the common goal of spooky, scary, glorious murder. Planned weeks in advance after a long and successful allied attack against the denizens of SW Malton, members of Flowers of Decay, Philosophe Knights, Cobra, Columbine Kids, Spartans and Red Rum chose the nearest Mall. On October 30th, just hours after the holiday game features were made, the PKA made their move. The addition of Mask Anonymity and fog added some unexpected flare this year. Most PKers donned masks and picked pumpkins prior to the event, which made for some interesting screenshots. The killing lasted more than one night this year, with murders continuing for days while fog, masks, candy, pumpkins and door-knocking still remained in effect. As usual, poems were recited and screenshots and victim IDs were meticulously maintained.
