From this morning until the 7th of November EverQuest players will be able to celebrate Halloween participating at The Haunting of Norrath events. Here is a general description of what you can expect.

The Haunting of Norrath is Coming...(October 24th through November 7th) October 31st marks All Hallows' Eve, the night when spirits rise at night and the begging for treats is deemed appropriate. Whether you celebrate this spooky holiday or not, it is the perfect excuse for dressing up in strange clothing, telling scary stories, decorating your house, bobbing for apples, and eating lots and lots of yummy candy. Here are some Halloween Activities you can participate for EverQuest this season:

Fresh Hauntings!
Necromancer's Garden
A crazed necromancer has recently snuck into Greater Faydark and spread some sort of seeds about the forest. The seeds have taken root and are sprouting into horrible skulls! Leavalin Mossbite was tasked to hire adventurers to help stop a threat to the folks of the Faydark.

Scarecrow Roundup
Rongol and Anderia's farm in West Karana has been struggling, leaving them little to sell and barely meeting their own needs. Believing he figured out how the Millers have been so successful with their farm all these years, Rongol created a scarecrow but his effort was unsuccessful and forced him to take more drastic measures. He sought the help of a witch. Unfortunately, the magical powers of the witch were a bit more than Rongol and Anderia were prepared to handle. The couple is now seeking the help of brave adventures.

Ancient Hauntings! These ghost, ghouls, and scary beings return to us from the hauntings in the past. Candy and Costumes
Across the starting cities, candy and costume merchants open up their spooky shop to celebrate the season of haunting. Also, seek out Wicked Winnie and a wizened hermit in the Plane of Knowledge for additional sweet fun. Trick or Treat?
