The Alltaker’s Appeal
All Hallow’s Eve… Halloween… The Day of the Dead… With its dark adornments – the glowing jack-o’-lanterns, lacy cobwebs and sticky sweets – the mortal celebration of the afterlife is charming. I beseech my mourners: Gift another mortal with a jejune delight in fear that is worth preserving and savoring, before they must learn the truth of the hereafter. Create a spooktacular mortal memory that will outlive costumes, candy, candles …and innocence.
~ Death, The Alltaker
Greetings, dear mourners! Welcome to Spooktacular 2018, the wickedly seductive time of year that’s filled with hair-raising new product announcements, blood-curdling discount codes, devilish contests and supernatural prizes. Fortunately for you auspicious souls, the Alltaker has taken note of your bewitching holiday season and decided to partake in the action.
In the Underworld, memories are the equivalent of your mortal notion of currency. They’re worth something, if you’ve got a good one. What #MournerMemory would you create for your fellow soulborn? Carve a pumpkin for a neighbor, bring a Fall bouquet to a lover, surprise your friends with oodles of candy…You’ve been called to pay a moment forward, and enter for a chance to WIN! While several runners-up will be chosen for their own esteemed awards, the fortuitous champion who most successfully fulfills Death’s appeal will win a prize worth all the grave tender in the Underworld: Xiall The Resolve of Bone Legendary Scale Bust.
What would you do, dear mourners, to create a memory for someone else in the name of the Alltaker, for the Spooktacular prize of the season and the glory of being Death’s chosen mortal?
