Paragon Times, Vol. 176 No. 112
A Gruesome Shadow Unfolds!
By Stanley King
Police are baffled by a new string of grisly murders that copies the events of last years alleged killing spree by Aris Van T’thyr. Aris Van T’thyr whom had been dubbed the “Midnight Slasher”, had undertaken a vengeful plot against his former partner and 1st Hero Brigade member, Mark Raven. Now only one year later the same fiendish acts have begun to repeat themselves. Lifeless bodies found on streets and in alleys on a lonely morning, drained of blood. Paragon City police are baffled by the crimes and have no suspects at this time as last years perpetrator Aris Van T’thyr, currently remains incarcerated in the Ziggursky prison in Brickstown with no chance of parole.
Accusations from other elements in Paragon City have begun to question the legitimacy of the charges and the arrest of Aris Van T’thyr at the hands of the 1st Fist of Light, in thanks to a super sleuth who wished to remain anonymous. Lord Maximillian Strife, the ruler of Escavia recently stated in a press conference that he had been present when the grim atrocities from last year came to pass. Lord Strife went on to state that he would gladly lend his aid as he has in the past to the citizens of Paragon City, in hopes of bringing whoever is behind these crimes to justice. He went on to state that he feels Van T’thyr received an unfair trial and believes him to be a victim of what he called “blind justice”. The Mayor’s office has made no comment about the rulings in the case of the “Midnight Slasher” at this time.
Paragon City Police has issued a special bulletin recommending that its citizens take special care in the late hours of night under the advisement of Magi and the mystical community. Whatever force is behind recent events and those about to come to pass is believed to be some form of “supernatural evil” that is both “malevolent and terrible”, according to one psychic from Magi.
It is that time of year again when the leaves upon the trees change their hue, where strange things are said to come to pass, and the spirits of the long since departed return from their graves to visit the living. Something wicked and diabolic now plots against the inhabitants of Paragon City once more. Let us hope and pray that its defenders remain ever vigilante in their watch upon our fair city, for who knows what gruesome fiends now lay in shadow to prey upon the helpless in the night.
Event will take place Friday, October 21st starting at 9pm est and ending approximately 11pm est on the Test server.
The event will be a Halloween “Who done it?”, where players try to discover who the true mastermind is in this nefarious plot. Players will be given a clue on Justice Radio at 9pm est to the location of the first event team member for players to speak to. Once players have reached the first event team member, that event team member will give them clues to another event team member. The chain will continue down the line until players have spoken to all event team members and are redirected back to the starting event team member that was announced prior, on Justice Radio to begin the event.
Please keep in mind that all event team members will be “in character”. Likewise we request that you do not send any tells to event team members as they will need to speak with other event team staff and the tells will likely go unanswered.
One Grand Prize Winner will receive a prepaid copy of the upcoming City of Villains expansion. Winner will be determined by the first to speak to all the event team members, return to the event team member that started the event off who had been announced on Justice Radio, and correctly give the name of the event team member who is in fact the mastermind behind the villainous plot.
Second Place winner will receive a copy of the City of Heroes Collector’s Edition DVD.
Third place winner will receive a regular copy of City of Heroes and one copy of Sucking Vacuum by Alien Menace.
Honorable Mention Awards will go out for those that remain in character the whole time and/or have an attitude that contributes to the enjoyment of the event for others. Those receiving such awards will receive a copy of the Justice League Hexors game by Mattell (both a starter and booster pack) plus a copy of the Natural Selection game by Alien Menace.
Other prize support will be given away randomly during the event.
