We disavow any insinuation that magic(k), Samhain, and witches/witchcraft are connected to Hell in any way, shape, or form. We are taking significant artistic liberties with Dante's Inferno and with witchcraft in an attempt to create a world that we hope will be interesting and engaging. We are fully aware that Samhain is not the same as Halloween, that being pagan does not make one a Witch, and that being a Witch and being Wiccan are not synonymous. We encourage beginners and curious outsiders to learn more about these religions and traditions and to keep in mind that this game is just that: a game.
You, the humble Pilgrim, will be venturing to the very center of Hell, guided by the spirits who made the journey before you and never left. Stay on the path we have set for you, lest you lose your soul along the way.
You will need to gather clues from each of the nine Circles of Hell and answer riddles correctly along your journey. Correct answers will help you move ahead. Incorrect answers will twist your path and lead you astray.
You will be directed to the houses (dA pages) of about 40 lost souls. Somewhere on their pages, you will find clues and riddles (1 riddle or clue per lost soul). Send them an answer (ONE ANSWER) via note, and they will reply to you with the name of the next lost soul and a password.
You will gather passwords along your journey. These will make up your special, personal ticket out of Hell, and you must turn them in IN THE ORDER IN WHICH YOU GATHERED THEM if you are ever to emerge from Hell. Do not lose track of the order.
Work by yourself and take your time. We will unlock a new Circle every day to every other day. These Circles will be unlocked at the group, so make sure you are watching our blog.
You must send your passwords by note to Halloween-HQ no later than midnight Pacific time (dA time) on October 31st. (Find your time here.) Your passwords must be listed in the order in which you found them. Remember that deceitfulness is a sin, and we actually really WILL know.
We upped the ante. The prizes are:
First place: 6,000 points
Second place: 5,000 points
Third place: 4,000 points
Are you ready?
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
So it would be kinda awkward if I missed the starter lol
After all the CR-Team is a department of the dA-company even if it is voluntary
This sounds like a whole lot of fun, I'll definitely have to make time to get in on the fun!
Is that the "wrong answer may lead you astray" part?
But yes, you have the general idea.
in the event that 2 or more peeps get the same passwords count and are all verified, do they split the 6k or each get 6k?
One question though, how are 1st, 2nd and 3rd places chosen? Are they the first people to give you all the passwords?
