For decades, mothers have threatened their children with tales of horrible Lord Nyax. "If you keep on being a bad boy, Lord Nyax will come for you." Rambunctious children have somehow turned the threat of Nyax into a strange and haunting holiday across systems. On Nyax Night, (held generally in the month of Yelona) most of the galaxy from all ages and planets don frightening visages and costumes in their best attempt to represent the evil which Nyax embodies. Orange and black seem a prevalent color theme across many systems that celebrate. As Nyax became a symbol of evil, many costumes reflect many of the differing galactic species. Of course, not all dress frightening for Nyax day. Some decide to dress up as they see fit, and some planets even have a tradition where children (and always a few adventurous teenagers and adults) go from dwelling to dwelling, crying, "Trick or Treat!," in hopes of scaring up sweet rewards.

We are holding a Star Wars Halloween, public, server-wide RP encouraged event on Friday, October 26th, 2012. If you are wishing to compete in the costume competition, please 1.) Send Ameria' an in game email with your character's name. 2.) Due to the obvious game mechanics, some costumes may not be feasible. Please put a short description of your costume in your character profile before you compete that evening, so that judges can /examine you and better visualize the costume you are wearing. We will be working with the wonderful Event Coordinators for decorating before hand. All that we ask is that participants be respectful, be nice, and in the spirit of community: have fun :) Please be cool with one another no matter how you enjoy SWGemu game play and events.

While Savareen was able to roll to a Rank 4 city, unfortunately it was hit by the planetary bug. So you will need to have a bike, otherwise the trek to Savareen will be harsh. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.


I am currently looking for volunteers to help make this event come alive. Tailors, Image Designers, prizes, food, drink, waiters, waitresses and greeters. Here is my original post requesting help for this event :http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59395

I (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59395)f you have questions, concerns, please contact Ameria' in game either via /tells or email, or elf_fu here in the forums via PM or response to this thread or the volunteer one. I will do my best to answer.


Looking forward to working with you & this event! See you there!

The more the merrier! And I'll be happy to take anything for prizes! I will be happy to add your name to available tailors/armorsmiths!

I have the strange bug with my friends list where it isn't at all accurate about telling me who is online--so if you see me log in and want to get together to donate your pledged prize please send a tell or email so I don't miss you!

EDIT: I am on right now (1:46 PM EST/EDT) and will try to be on until about 8PM this evening, if anyone who has pledged prizes needs to get a hold of me :)

Hi guys! Some personal hiccups: Father-in-law has is in the hospital and have been dealing with that, so if I have missed your e-mails or chances to speak to you in game, it's because of that. I will be making an attempt to log in and be on tomorrow night (Monday, oct 15th) after 6PM EST/EDT to catch up to any emails and other stuff I have missed. Thank you for understanding!

Love the idea! I have a recent post about my halloween costumes, a full display of what I have in my Queens Market Naboo shop, with them available and ready to buy both in my shop and on Coronet Bazaar under "wearable containers".

I'm also willing to work on any original concepts people may have in mind that they are not sure about pulling off! (contact me privately for this please)

elf_fu
10-18-2012, 07:27 PM
So far I've only got 1 actual email from someone wishing to participate in the costume competition!

Please ladies and gents, if you are competing, send me a quick email with your characters names! (Ameria' in game. Don't forget the apostrophe! :D This is so I can call them up on stage for the actual competition and event!)

Also, A HUGE ALL CAPS THANK YOU goes out to Kairavi (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/member.php?u=81115) for donating MORE than what I ever dreamed, and Lilon for a new pledge!

Meiwe (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/member.php?u=95340), can I add you to the list of tailor contact as well in case anyone needs costume work? :) And maybe share the waypoint to your shop too for potential customers to ogle your designs? :D

I have to update the prize list with Kairavi's donations and Lilon's pledge soon--will do so hopefully tonight or this morning; whenever I can get in game. <3

Thanks so much, everyone!

Don't forget--if you can't make it on the 26th, the day after SoE & HUSL are having a Halloween party too! Check it out here: http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60793

Thank you Weedie!

Upon further reflection, due to the unstable family issues I am currently experiencing + 3 days left until October is over :( I have decided to cancel this event. Please help me spread the news about this by contacting any fellow players you know who were attending or wishing to attend. This is a personal disappointment, because I truly looked forward to holding another great event with the community and it was amazing seeing all of you gather together to help me make this a reality!

HUGE PERSONAL THANK YOU TO:
Kreen and Amber, the events staff for working with me all month to figure out everything.
Rumples, Lilon & Kairavi for the generous credit donations
Taylan for the swoop donations
Kiaryn for the amazing suits and clothing
Ryli for a STUPENDOUS amount of Nyax Night themed food which I have no idea how to repay you for please let me know omg that was awesome
Xanthya for the offer of free structure prizes & help in anyway
For everyone who sent me an email saying they were going to compete
And the community for being so supportive!

I will be issuing credit refunds A.S.A.P. Those of you who donated item prizes, please let me know how I can repay you for your time and effort.

Again, my sincere apologies Basilisk! I hope I can make it up to you in the future.
