    Get ready for the most terrifying event in Planet Calypso history!

    Fight your way through hordes of undead as you compete for the prizes in this year’s Halloween event, featuring...
    • A spooky haunted graveyard instance
    • Two creepy new creatures and two new bosses

    Special loot, including Halloween Candy, a consumable booster item
    … and lots of great prizes!

    In this Mayhem style event, similar to the Feffox Mayhem event, you will hunt in a solo instance and score points by looting and handing in Halloween pumpkins. The Halloween pumpkins have been distributed in relation to creature difficulty, so that hunters in all five instance levels have a fair chance at scoring points in the event.

    The Halloween Mayhem event starts on Thursday November 7th, 00:00:00 UTC and ends on Sunday November 17th, 23:59:59 UTC.

    Are you ready for Halloween Mayhem?

    Rules & Notes

    Each participant is limited to a maximum of 40 hours in the Halloween event instances. This 40 hour limit applies to combined time in any of the Halloween instances, not each individual instance level. Event participants must keep track of their time spent in the event instances, since the current instance system unfortunately does not track time spent across multiple login/instance sessions.

    This event is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

    Do not abandon the mission! If you abandon the mission for any reason, either intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation.

    Happy Hunting!

    Happy hunting and Happy Halloween!

    Voice of Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “It’s time to end this. This Sunday, between 18:00-19:00 UTC, the final RX on Calypso will be destroyed, and the Egg will be recovered.

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    The CDF released a statement today about a very important development in the hunt for the RX and the Egg. Let’s listen.

    Voice of Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “Earlier today, CDF Scouts spotted what appeared to be RX units. We know for sure that these aren’t colonists wearing RX armor, as the 'female' RX clad in orange armor was sighted.
    The Scouts held back, as they could not engage the RX on their own. Tomorrow, Saturday, between 1 PM and 2PM UTC, the CDF will make a concentrated effort to find and destroy the RX. Any colonist who manages to land the killing blow on one of the RX units will be rewarded.

    The rewards are as follows:
    RX Unit Bounty Rewards
    RX Unit Alpha - Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    RX Unit Beta 242 - Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition (L) + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    RX Unit Beta - CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)

    More detailed instructions will be released on Planet Calypso closer to the time of the attack.
    End transmission.”

    Jermaine: “There you have it, folks. It’s time to show those metal-clad demons what Calypsians are made of - the time being between 13:00-14:00 UTC on Saturday.”

    Jermaine the Anchorman: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.

    Today’s top story: A major announcement coming out of Treasure Island.

    We go now to our reporter, CJ Weave, who is reporting live from Treasure Island Castle. CJ?”

    CJ Weave: “Thanks, Jermaine.

    'Aaaah, The Egg...' A standing joke among Calypsians, ever since entrepreneur-colonist Zachurm “Deathifier” Emegen bought the petrified ovum for a fantastical amount of PED. Now, scientists say, we might finally get to hear the punchline.

    The Egg will hatch - if everything goes as planned, that is.

    We are joined now by renowned Xenobiologist Charles Marvin, who is leading the project to hatch the Egg.

    Charles, how exactly do you plan on hatching the Egg?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “It’s simple, really. The Egg was extracted from the carcass of the Atrox Queen - it was never brought to term. We intend to ‘tell’ the Egg that it’s time to hatch, by subjecting it to a cocktail of hormones... Atrox and otherwise.”

    CJ Weave: “What exactly do you hope to accomplish by hatching the Egg?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “Knowledge. The Egg is a xenobiological anomaly. It will remain a missing link in our understanding of this world we call Calypso until it hatches.

    And who knows what we could learn from whatever hides within the egg?”

    CJ Weave: “Charles, it’s an Atrox Queen egg; would it not be safe to assume that it contains an atrox?”

    Xenobiologist Charles Marvin: “Well... Uhm... Good point. Hmm... It’s actually a green Atrox Queen egg, so...”

    CJ Weave: “Thank you, professor. For EBN News, I’m CJ Weave. Back to you at the station.”

    Jermaine: “Well, there you have it, folks. A new chapter in Calypso’s history, or the world’s most expensive omelet? I personally can’t wait to find out. Stay tuned.”
