Halloween Masquerade 2019

Recommended Posts

Hello, new and old viewers alike! Did you miss me? Theoretical question, of course you did!

After last year's show was met with some... "mixed" reviews, I spent an entire year at the glorious MTT-Brand Superstar Camp, and have come out completely the same! You can't fix perfection, darlings. BUT! I did learn a thing or two while I was there, handing out harsh lessons to aspiring stars between all my other obligations. You know what's hot on the surface world these days? Remakes! Take something old, and do it again with some new life and techniques breathed into it. And if those directors in Hollywood can do it, so can I!

Welcome, beauties and gentlebeauties, to the Year of Revival's Halloween Masquerade!

Now, I see a handful of new adoring fans have tuned into our show this time around. I suppose that's what happens when you switch to a new channel. So for those of you not quite sure what's happening right now, fear not, for I'll explain everything! But in the interest of saving time, I'll be doing this rather quickly, so try to keep up. Ahem.

TheHalloweenMasqueradeisanannualeventinwhichplayerstakeupmonsterdisguisesfor... sorry, what's that? I'm going too fast? Very well! I will explain at a normal speed!

The Halloween Masquerade is an annual event with two core components. The first is the Masquerade itself, in which a handful of players are permitted to run a second "monster" account in addition to their main account Consider it the same as wearing a Halloween costume, but you're pretending to be that person. The second part is the monster hunt, in which participants look at the monster roster, and try to guess which members are playing which monsters. However, I must urge new monsters to not pick something purely because it's hard to guess! This attempt at playing an obscure role has caused many a monster to simply drop out of the masquerade because they simply weren't enjoying it. Any further questions about the event can be directed to myself or my almost-as-lovely co-host, Hades. With the event explained, let's talk about the rules.

1: This year, we're only accepting 10-15 monsters. This is generally a show with 20 participants, but the directors insisted we lower the cast size to account for a smaller and newer stage. This will also make the monster hunt more friendly to new players, so rejoice!
2: While past masquerades have had some high requirements to join, that won't be the case this time around. You need only be reasonably active on the website recently to apply. This is to encourage new members of the community to join in, so let's see what those rising stars are made of!
3: Be a good sport! You're given a second account, but are expected not to abuse the fact. Don't send yourself lots of points from your monster, don't like all your posts as your monster, etc. Violators of this rule will be removed from the event, and potentially barred from joining future masquerades as a monster.
4: Do not tell others your monster identity! Do not tell your friends or family who you are in this masquerade, as it's meant to be a secret for the other site members to figure out themselves! Likewise, don't make posts that out the true identities of other monsters. People caught in the act will be removed from the event and prevented from being a monster in the future.
5: Similarly to last year's event, this Halloween Masquerade is themed, BUT! The theme will not be strictly enforced this year. Instead, you'll simply be encouraged - not forced - to adhere to the theme for the Year of Rebirth. The theme for this year's monsters is undeath! Vampires, zombies, and incredibly handsome ghosts living inside machines, et cetera, are all on the table.
6: A quick note. Boss monsters, such as yours truly, are not formally part of the monster hunt this year, for reasons I'm going to delve into, but you can still put out guesses to their identities if you so desire.
7: Do not submit your monster ideas in this thread!! Please, PM them to the event's coordinators: @Blake Eagle @Nathanael D. Striker and @Yui

Now, the sharp-eyed Halloween Masquerade fans among you may recognize the name Hades that I mentioned earlier. Indeed, he was a participant in a past Masquerade, and has opted to join me for this year's event, fitting in 2019's theme of "Year of Revival". And he's not alone, either! Indeed, Hades is willing to use his command over the afterlife to bring back five monsters from past Masquerades! Players interested in having a rerun of an old monster should apply in the same fashion as anyone else; by sending a PM to the event's coordinators. Because we'll only be accepting five of these, we'll only be picking the best of the best if we get more entries than we can handle.

Finally, our schedule! It wouldn't be much of a show if it only ran for a single day, but in the interest of avoiding too much filler on our season two pilot, we'll keep this a bit brief. The event proper will begin on October 22nd, 2019 at 12:00AM Eastern Standard Time. The event will then continue on until November 1st, 2019, 12:00AM EST. If you wish to participate, please remember to submit your monster via PM to the above users before the event starts.

Now then, once more, with spirit! Lights! Camera! ACTION! I look most forward to working with all of you one last time!

Great news, everyone! The event is shaping up nicely, in terms of applicants... but we still have room!

As of now, we have 7 new monsters and 4 returning monsters signed up! Of course, those numbers include myself, Striker, and Yui, but that means we have 4 total slots left, optimally for 1 more returning monster and 3 new ones!

So, steal a spot before they all run out!

Clarifying on the above because Black is the big dumb. Returning monster limit does not include Mettaton NEO or Hades. This means that for the purpose of returning monsters, we have 3 slots still open, since nobody else has voiced interest in taking one. And while I'm at it, we're currently at 8 new monsters. There are two slots left before we hit our minimum quota, but the cast size for this event goes up to 15. This isn't your last chance, but you should get a spot while they're hot!

Wonderful news, darlings! Recruitment for new monsters has nearly finished! Out of the 10-15 monsters we wanted for this event, we currently have 9. Soon, we'll have a large enough cast to start this show as scheduled (or perhaps a little early), and there will still be room for more to come! On the flip side, there are still plenty of slots open for monsters you'd like our dear co-host Hades to bring back to this year's Masquerade! Out of the 5 slots we set out for returning monsters, only 2 have been filled. That means there are still plenty of chances for you to bring back that one monster you so enjoyed playing once upon a time!

And don't forget, the only rule is that you've been a reasonably active member on this website recently. That means we encourage new members - or members who simply hide away in one section without interacting with the rest of the community - to come out of their shell and join in the festivities! My managers look most forward to everyone's lovely ideas for monsters to partake in this year's Halloween Masquerade! If you're confused as to what I'm talking about, please direct your eyes to the top of this thread, where I go into greater detail on the event! And now, I must return to where I've been hiding away all this time. Until next time beauties and gentlebeauties, I bid you adieu!

After some conversation with our lovely administrator Tormented, I can confirm that monsters are allowed to host forum games with prizes involved! To avoid inflating the economy of this website too much within its first year of running, I would like to advise that monsters try to keep any point prizes modest. However, monsters will also be able to hand out items as prizes if the reward has been worth the effort! For further guidance on hosting these games, please contact one of the event coordinators mentioned at the start of this thread, as well as our dear admin Tormented to ensure the prizes aren't excessive and that your monster can be given the appropriate prizes to distribute once the event starts. Members that are unfamiliar with the PM system should follow the below instructions on PM'ing multiple members.

 

When sending a PM, you should see the "To" field containing the recipient's name. You are able to simply add other members to that field to send the PM to multiple people at once.

Stay tuned for further updates, darlings! After all, we've yet to discuss the prizes for the monster hunt, and with item prizes being available on this website, we're able to crack open a whole new layer of making your effort pay off.

With the Halloween Masquerade closing in, I'm pleased to announce that prizes for this year's monster hunt have been confirmed! In the interest of keeping this year's event smaller in scale, we'll only be distributing small point prizes. Please see the below for more information on prizes! These will be handed out to any forum member able to correctly guess the identities of certain amounts of monsters.

Uncovering 1 monster: 50 points
Uncovering 3 monsters: 200 points
Uncovering 5 monsters: 500 points
Uncovering 10 monsters: 1500 points

There are some points that ought to be noted, though, as this year's Masquerade is a bit special. As stated at the start of this thread, Boss Monsters like my beautiful self and returning monsters from past Masquerades do not count for the monster hunt! Furthermore, for those of you unfamiliar with this event, guesses as to a monster's identity are to be PM'd to myself during the event. Not an event coordinator. Not a moderator. Me specifically.

Well isn't this interesting? It seems that other place, YCM I think it was, couldn't take the heat after all, but where are my manners? The name is Hades: Lord of the Dead, Ruler of the Underworld, blah blah blah. As my friend alluded to, we aren't the only returning monsters. I took the liberty to bring back some of the most infamous monsters ever to grace this event.

How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams. But you, oh, you are not those people. These reborn monsters will ensure that you pay the piper for thwarting my previous plans, and no unlikely heroes will save you this time.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show while you can.
