Got an email with the information about the ether saga halloween celebration

It’s that time of year again – Halloween! A week of frightening events has descended upon Pokari where the spirits rise from the grave and people go trick or treating. Are you prepared for the Witch of Samhain’s challenges?

The first event is called Restless Spirits. Ghosts have invaded Pokari, and it’s up to you to bust them. You’ll be rewarded with Spirit Tokens, which you can exchange at the Engineer’s Wife in Pokari for Halloween-themed potions, transformation cards and pets.

Players can also participate in the Trick-or-Treat event, All Hallows’ Eve. Speak to homeowners and shopkeepers in Pokari, Gallio, and Amaz to get a treat – or a mean trick!

Think you are brave enough to face the horrors of Halloween? Log in between 8 pm and 10 pm server time starting on Oct 28th on realms 2-15 to speak to the Witch of Samhain. Face your fears to get some great prizes!

There is also two post about the events on the website.

Aion is going to have a Halloween event.

During the fall harvest, from time immemorial, the people of Atreia have celebrated the bounty of the land. Years ago, the joy of the annual revels was troubled by an eclipse – a peculiar and magical eclipse that brought darkness to Asmodae and Elysea. Ever since, for days during Harvest Revel, the sky goes dark and the peoples of Atreia join the hunt.

The two sides have different events.

Asmodians find soothing peace during the dark days of the Harvest Revel. They celebrate by racing after the Wild Kurthanir hunt leader during the Wild Hunt and cooking special traditional dishes.

Elyos endure the dark days because during them the dead of Elysea are restless. Undead creatures rise from the grave every few hours, pulled back into a semblance of life by the power of the eclipse. Elyos must join roving Dark Night bands to hunt and destroy the undead before they invade Elyos villages.

Its due to start on the 25th (this Saturday).

Wonder about the festival? Read up on it here

And so this olden tale draws to a close. Its legacy, however, lives on in Vana’diel to this day. As word of the young man’s escapades spread, carved pumpkins, once considered humble fall festival decorations, became seen as magical charms used to ward away unwanted visitants from the netherworld. So when next you take carving knife to pumpkin, pray spend a moment in remembrance of the two youths of legend whose undying love found a way for them to be together

How long is it on for?

The Harvest Festival event will skulk into town on Friday, October 16 at 1:00 a.m. (PDT) and dissipate into the darkness on Monday, November 2 at the same hour.

As Harvest Festival tradition goes, the residents of the three nations have dressed themselves in fearsome costumes, hoping to spook adventurers and earn a treat or two in the process.

Southern San d’Oria / Northern San d’Oria
Bastok Mines / Bastok Markets
Windurst Waters / Windurst Woods
*NPCs will accept most food items of the Sweets category, with certain exceptions that do not appeal to their finicky palates.

Wake of the Lilies
The Harvest Festival will again play host to the Wake of the Lilies, with three aspiring exorcists from the West making their annual pilgrimage to the three nations. Would-be shadow-hunters should seek them out at the following locations:

Gertrude in Northern San d’Oria (D-8)
Brian in Bastok Markets (G-8)
Roger in Windurst Waters (F-5)
*After successfully completing an exorcist’s request, players will be required to wait one Vana’diel day before accepting another.
