The Halloween event Samhain returns in 2013. It started on 25.10.2013 and ends on 11.11.2013 with 16 mission and 11 pieces of lore.
Halloween is a very special occasion in The Secret World, and this year we have a unique treat for you! You can enjoy ten new Item Missions with ten exclusive scary stories written for this occasion alone. You will find these spread throughout New England, as they are built on local urban legends and told by the Solomon Islanders themselves.
Complete all the new missions and gather up all the stories and you will get a special reward from Danny Dufresne and the complete set of stories bound into an in-game book, which you can read through at any time!
- I despise the trope of the unreliable narrator, so you can imagine my self-loathing, tonight, as I bleed black upon the blank page. I was full of with self-loathing that night too. I was a writer, barely at the start of my career, and I'd run out of stories.
- Desperate. Very desperate.
- Never mind whether I found him, or he found me. Never mind the ritualistic particulars — whether I waited at a cross roads under a harvest moon or drew a chalk circle or invoked his name nine times before a dark mirror — whether I sacrificed a cat, swallowed a leech ballooning on virgin blood, or answered an odd ad in the Personals. Pick your cliché and suckle on it...
But that is of course not all. The Cat God is making a return for this year's Halloween, so get ready for a harrowing chain of Missions where you get to see Stonehenge in its ancient form.
We are also introducing plenty of new and exclusive Halloween items this year, some of which can be gotten as rewards and loot and others in the Item Shop. Does dressing up as a Plague Doctor for Halloween this year sound tempting?
The Halloween events start today and will last for two weeks, until the 8th of November.
There are 11 pieces of lore. Please see Lore Locations.
