Wolf Howl is here!

Overcome by the sudden urge to Awoooo at the moon? Does the crunch of leaves underfoot fill you with glee? Have you kitterjack-spiced ALL the things? No doubt about it... Wolf Howl has arrived!

This annual festival in honor of Prime Reegarr has lots of eerily entertaining things to see and do, mwahaha!

  • Pick a pumpkin and carve it into the purrfect jack-o-lantern
  • Linger by the moonlit pool to let your inner wolf loose
  • Venture into the haunted mansion to assist an odd, possibly mad, dragon... what could go wrong?
  • Some folks speak of stumbling upon strange Words of Power, but their purpose remains a mystery...
  • And more!

It's time for all things spooky... and spoopy! The most mischievous time of the year is the perfect opportunity for some fun contests!

Pumpkin Patch Carving

The awesome Rat the Unloved has conjured up three gourd-geous pumpkin patch-item bases for you! Pick your favorite one -- or if you're feeling adventurous take all three! -- and digitally carve a spooky or spoopy jack-o-lantern using Furcadia's official patch editor, FOXed!

Check out this awesome example Rat made!

Spooky Spells

Witty with words? All Hallow's Eve is the best time of year for the concocting of potions and summoning of all things ghoulish and frightful! So why not try your hand at writing up an appropriately haunting spell in the form of rhymed couplets, incorporating Furcadian objects and creatures.

Hang a pot of brew to boil,

Pinch of dust of pongo seed.

Once it peaks at steady roil,

Ready for what else must need.

Tongue of snugg and raukor's feather,

Two, no more, of eetrox horn.

All of these combined together,

Gain you now a brand new form!

- Glaciess

You could win yourself some awesome Wolf Howl swag! Just take part in one -- or both! -- of our contests!
