    This year's Halloween Event will also feature again the exciting Campaign Quest Chain: The Terrorized Town! These short adventures will all feature on the same island - this allows us to fine-tune the balancing for all level ranges; using the Black Knights adventure as a baseline point of reference.

    Don't underestimate this challenge: this small island is full of surprises! Not everything will be as it seems: the line between friends and foes will blur - you'll need to keep your wits about you if you wish to uncover the true sinister villains behind the town's woes. Will you heed the call for aid from this small and vulnerable town? Defend its citizens, find the source of these ghastly creatures and put a stop to them!

    After all - your ethereal detective skills will be handsomely rewarded with one of our brand new buildings, but more on that further down .

    As we all know, it is customary to animate the tiny "Event Island" located in the centre of the map on certain special events: the 4 Golems are back, alive and kicking! But don't let them kick too much... it is up to you to defeat them once again, no matter if it's a Rock Golem, Greater Golem, Ancient or Supreme Golem. An adjustment of the production items for the holy water (ancient golem) and Glistening Water (supreme golem) was done in 2019, which allows players in that level range to obtain the needed items properly. Additionally, the supreme golem got an increase to become a greater challenge. A small spooky tip: It is now more valuable to defeat the reoccurring golems! Don't get intimidated by these guys; we've heard they're allergic to certain water buffs you can create in the Provision or Rarity Provision House! Here's how you can defeat them:

    Defeat the Rock Golem with Purified Water

    If your level is within 19 - 25 range, you will have to defeat the Rock Golem, which will respawn five times, getting more powerful with each respawn. If you don't level-up to 26 in the meantime, the last Rock Golem will keep respawning. Use Purified Water in order to defeat it. The production of Purified Water in the Provision House / Rarity Provision House will cost you 20 Water and 20 Copper ore.


    Defeat the Greater Golem with Enriched Water

    If your level is within 26 - 40 range, you will have to defeat the Rock Golem five times - careful, they will again get more powerful with each respawn! Only after having defeated it for the fifth time will the next type of Golem show up: the Greater Golem, which also has 5 difficulty levels. If you don't level-up to 41, the Greater Golem will keep respawning. Use Enriched Water in order to defeat it. The production of Enriched Water in the Provision House / Rarity Provision House will cost you 40 Water and 20 Iron ore.


    Defeat the Ancient Golem with Holy Water

    If your level is within 41- 55 range, you will have to defeat the Rock Golem and the Greater Golem five times. It's getting more and more challenging! Only after having defeated the 5th Greater Golem will the Ancient Golem appear, with 5 difficulty levels. This Golem will keep respawning as well if you don't level-up to 56. Use Holy Water in order to defeat the Ancient Golem. The production of Holy Water in the Provision House / Rarity Provision House will cost you 60 Water and 20 Titanium ore 180 Water and 10 Titanium ore.


    Defeat the Supreme Golem with Glistening Water

    If your level is 56 or more, you will have to defeat all the previous Golems five times. The Supreme Golem will then make its majestic appearance and will keep respawning. Use Glistening Water in order to defeat it. The production of Glistening Water in the Provision House or the Rarity Provision House will cost you 100 Water and 25 Platinum ore 1000 Water and 250 Platinum ore.


    Overwhelmed?

    It takes 16 hours for each Golem to respawn and in the meantime, you can prepare the buffs in order to defeat it. This might get overwhelming, but don't fret, friends are here to help you out! Your friends who are above level 19 can produce any of these buffs and fight the Golem for you. When its HP reaches 0, a button for confirming the Golem's defeat will be enabled. Only you, as the island owner, can press that button and only after pressing it will the Golem disappear. You and your friends can also "overbuff" the Golem with more buffs than it is required, with no further effect.

    Below level 19?

    Dear TSO novices, here's what you need to do. In order to witness the appearance of the Rock Golem, make sure the middle area of your home island is revealed; put that explorer to work! Remember, you can only see the Rock Golem if you are below level 19, but you cannot fight it, nor can you produce water buffs. We don't want you to miss out on all the fun, so get the game rolling and reach level 19!

    A quest chain will guide you through the mechanics of the event, regarding how to kill golems, the gathering of refillers and the specific missions you have to solve. Additionally, a Calendar is present in which you should open the doors daily!

    To access the Calendar, just click on the icon next to your avatar.



    2 DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOORS
    There is a total of 21 doors. You can open one door each day. Opening missed doors for gems will cost 100 gems for normal doors and 300 gems for special doors due to a very high value in the calendar.

    Don't forget to open the doors daily and also remind your friends to do so!


    Type: Regular door
    Amount: 18
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for 100 gems afterwards
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not
    Rewards: Provides basic rewards (such as resources), sometimes chosen randomly

    Type: Special door
    Amount: 3
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for 300 gems afterwards.
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open
    Rewards: Most special doors offer a choice between several rewards when opened

    This year's horrific headliners will be the brand new Younger Gemini General and the Bewitching Explorer. The Younger Gemini General, who was always not taken seriously as he was just the "Little Baby". Turning his back on his family and therefore missing their values for a long time. He now returns with some evil-ish looking appearance. Apparently, he had found a new mentor, but who could that have been? Additionally, another Specialist will step out of the Darkness. The Bewitching Explorer was once so lovely, but something bad happened to her! Can you guess what horrors she has experienced? The well-known Halloween specialists Grim Reaper and Lord Dracul are also available yet again at the in-game merchant shop and scaring the Settlers. Lord Dracul, a malicious general thirsty for... battle, the Conscientious, tireless Geologist and the sinister Grim Reaper General - don't sell your soul for any of these specialists! Instead, simply purchase them for Pumpkins at the merchant:

    Only the Lantern can directly be purchased for 5.499 Pumpkins and you can obtain 3 during this Event. The lantern is not tradable and can't be gifted. It has the size of a decoration lantern.

    The Ghost Ship is called once a week by placing at least 1 ghost lantern on the island.

    Works similar to the Gift Christmas Tree. Placing several ghost lanterns on the island increases the loot the ghosts bring home.Fthe

    A Quest shows the countdown until the ship reappears. The Ship gets spawned on the western side of sector 1, below the weekly challenge ship.

    Every week also 1 side quest is started giving an additional small reward. The quest stays until solved. Only if the quest is completed another one is started the next time the Ghost ship reappears.

    The quest is randomly chosen out of 26 different side quests and reward either 10 or 20 gems, 10 Crystals or 1 or 2 or 3 Tokens. The Box contains the following items:

    Item Chance
    Rain of Arrows 5 Tickets
    Rain of Flaming Arrows 5 Tickets
    iGor 5 Tickets
    Mr. Myers 5 Tickets
    Rabbits Luck Charm 5 Tickets
    The Headless Horseman 5 Tickets
    Zombie 5 Tickets
    Chant of Focus 5 Tickets
    Recruitment Guide 5 Tickets
    Mining Guide 5 Tickets
    Farming & Hunting Guide 5 Tickets
    Rock Mining Guide 5 Tickets
    Wood Cutting Guide 5 Tickets
    20 Gems 5 Tickets
    10 Crystals 5 Tickets
    300 Coin 5 Tickets
    500 Coin 5 Tickets
    Omniseed amount 500 5 Tickets

     




    Ghosts of deceased settlers and soldiers keep appearing after we defeat their villains and free them of their burdens. But instead of haunting the Living, they are very friendly and want to help you in your efforts fighting all the evildoers by producing bronze really quickly. Nobody can explain how the ghosts do it. And imagine how hard it was for Sonya to convince everybody else that this would work out!

    !!Please be aware!!
    The building is not recurring. If you delete it, it will not go back to the starmenu

    Type: Workyard
    Effect: Produces 12 Bronze without the need of Coal and 6 deposit
    Time: 3 min.
    Size: 2 x 2
    Limit: 3 (+ 1 through the Quest)
    Cost: 3.499 Pumpkins (tradable, but not giftable)




    The Laboratory
    The Laboratory enables various resource conversions. Additional Laboratories will increase the production speed of these conversions.
    It costs 3,999 Pumpkins has a Limit of 2 and you cannot trade it or send it as a gift.


    The Haunted Mansion

    The Haunted Mansion increases your population limit by 145, while also having some other spooky surprises when you interact with it. Its Limit is 3.
    It costs 2,450 Pumpkins and can be traded, but it's not giftable.


    PUMPKIN CEMETERIES
    Production: Each Pumpkin cemetery produces event resources (Pumpkins) over time
    Limit: 3 per player and version = 9 buildings (former acquisitions don't count)

    You can build them on your island: not only do they provide Pumpkins, but they also contribute to the Halloween mood!

    The Pumpkin cemeteries can only be refilled with "Pumpkin refillers". If you're wondering how you can get those precious refillers, you should play adventures: not all of them offer Pumpkin refillers, but most of them do. You can find the complete list in the in-game Event window. Please be aware that the premium friend buff positively affects the production of the cemeteries when these are buffed

    There's another thing that can happen to your Pumpkin cemeteries: they can deplete. If that is the case, you can purchase Fertilizer from the in-game merchant to revive them. It costs 75 Pumpkins and it revives the depleted cemetery with 10 Pumpkins. This might look like a bad deal at first, but you will be able to use refillers and buffs again on a restored cemetery.




    Small version: Costs 50 stone and 100 pinewood planks
    Common version: Costs 150 marble and 200 hardwood planks
    Noble version: Costs 10 granite and 25 exotic wood planks

    • HALLOWEEN 2019 ACHIEVEMENTS
      All of last year's achievements return, all of them rewarding Pumpkins.
    • COLLECTIBLE PUMPKINS
      Pumpkin collectables will be guaranteed to spawn. Each time you click on a Pumpkin collectable, one Pumpkin will be added to your warehouse.
    • Ghosts and Zombies
      Where have all the animals gone? Oh right, the zombies got them! Zombies and Ghosts will replace the wildlife on your island. It seems they learned to coexist in... creepy harmony?

    GRAPHICS AND SOUND
    • Info screen & widget
      The event info window will show you the remaining time of the Halloween event. Also, the info widget is displayed on the left side.


    • Spooky background music
      For the duration of the event, the in-game background music will be changed to different tracks.
    • Modification of several graphics
      Several graphics will be modified, for example, the logo and the loading screen.

    WHAT HAPPENS IN THE REMOVAL PHASE?
    11th of November, at 10:00 CET

    • The core mechanisms of the event will be turned off, but the event shop category will remain until Deactivation.
    • All quests, achievements and event-related collectables will be deactivated. The ongoing quests will be cancelled.
    • Event Adventures will be cancelled and cannot be started anymore.
    • Explorers will bring Pumpkins if they were sent before the Removal phase kicked in. New explorer searches will not bring any event currency.
      Explorers only sent and returned during the Halloween Event will bring back Halloween Resources:
      In very rare cases, Explorers may find Halloween Resources on arrival shortly after the start of the Event & shutdown phase.
    • Golem respawns will be removed. Already spawned Golems can still be defeated, but there will be no reward for defeating them since the quests will have been cancelled at that point.
    • The Pumpkin refillers reward from adventures will be deactivated and the Seasonal adventures will return to their normal rewards.
    • The creation of "Banshee's Scream", "Werewolf's Howl" and anti-Golem buffs are related to the Halloween event. Therefore this option will be turned off. If you started to produce an event item shortly before the Removal Phase kicked in, this item will be finished even after the Removal phase. The same goes for completed items: you can still pick them up after Removal phase.
    • You can use the Banshee's Scream buff in order to get more Pumpkins before the Removal phase finishes. The buff effect will end and you won't be able to use such buffs anymore after the event deactivation.
    • The event-related loading screen will be set to the default loading screen and the event window will be deactivated.




    WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE EVENT DEACTIVATION?
    18th of November ~10:00 CET

    • The Halloween shop category will be deactivated. Pumpkins will not be visible anymore in the warehouse. Pumpkin collections will be removed from the Mayor's House.
    • New trade offers containing Pumpkins can't be set up anymore.
      Already running trade offers containing Pumpkins will be set to invisible until they expire.
    • Pumpkins remaining on each field, no matter if the fields have been built or if they are still in your Star Menu, will be converted to coins, along with all remaining refillers.
    • No matter where the Pumpkin originated from (Cemetery, warehouse, mails etc.), you will get 0.5 coins for 1 Pumpkin.
    • After Deactivation, the "Trick" and "Treat" buffs created can still be used on your friends' buildings, but you won't be able to create more of them
    • Any Event Adventures in the Star Menu will be deleted.
    • You can apply the unused Golem buffs on the Mayor's house to get a resource refund.

    The exchange will be conducted with the next game update!
