Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, All Saints' Day, Mischief Night, Samhain... All over the world there have been these celeberations of the dark, the frightening and the macabre, but what do they all mean?
It is a time of great magic. The time where the bridge between the worlds of the living and the dead is strongest. However, where did it all began? It is a legend forgotten by all but a lucky few. And these few ensured the safety of our world as we know it.
Occasionally known as Samhain, this was one of the eight grand holidays of the old gods. Here was where the harvest ended and the folks prepared for the long cold months of winter. Samhain is considered by some as a time to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on, and it often involves paying respect to ancestors, family members, elders of the faith, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died. In some rituals the spirits of the departed are invited to attend the festivities. It is seen as a festival of darkness, which is balanced at the opposite point of the wheel by the spring festival of Beltane, which is celebrated as a festival of light and fertility.
In this festival of darkness during the elder days we saw the living spend some few days communicating with their ancestors and experiencing ancient magic, seeing the dance between the lady of life and the grim reaper.
However... something horrible had happened one day...
An evil cult had gathered dark power from a strange stone that appeared from the sky. They had intended to fuse these two worlds into one, to drive the world into a maddening state filled with tormentes souls of the living and dead to satisfy their monsterous masters. However, the Mother Goddess and the Father God would not allow this and brought to life seven powerful warriors from around the world to combat this threat. They had managed to seal away the stone but the cost was great and the gate between life and the afterlife was destoryed and scattered.
Samhain faded and gained rebirth through what is known as Halloween...
This Halloween however... the ancient seal has decayed... The gate has been rebuilt and the stars are aligned for the gate to be active and for the descandants of this dreadful cult to try once more. And so... seven new heroes must arise and claim the spirits of the old heroes, use their strengths and courage to defeat the cult and stop the merging between the worlds of the living and the dead.
Your mission is simple... claim your trinket and let the hero within shine. Fight the cult and re-seal and stop the gate. However, there may another way to stop this without depriving the world of magic once more...
You are a high schooler. From 14-18, you are participating in your school's 100th birthday through a large Halloween party held in the Sacred Cemetary in the town of Mystic Valley. Having arrived, you spot a young couple with white hair with a table with seven trinkets. You and your comrades will be drawn to these trinkets and as the clock counts down to midnight...
The Witching Hour begins...
A special hour where the fright fight begins... It will be one long night... friendships being tested, relationships build or broken and bonds of camaderie being forged...
Good luck, heroes.
