TalonRO's newest haunted festival has landed! For centuries, each annual Festival of Witches has been hidden from the view of the living - and each year has always produced a clear winner between the two rival schools. But, for the first time in nearly three centuries following the dark era of Ragnarok, an unprecedented tie between the two schools emerged on Halloween night! In order to break the tie between their students, the witches have extended their festival for the first time and opened its magic to the residents of Midgard. Since the adventurers of Midgard are new, their fresh take on the ancient festival will surely yield a clear winner - and it will be up to you to fight for a side in the end in this year's Halloween celebration: the Festival of Witches!
You're officially invited to this year's Festival of Witches! Long considered a hidden festival of the witching academies, the two most prestigious schools of the dark arts have found themselves bound into an ancient traditional festival and competition to see which school's pupils have gained true sight into the powers of the dead. The Necromancers and the Spirit Channelers, Niflheim's two most powerful practitioners of the dark arts, have used the time of Halloween to test their finely-honed mystic arts in friendly competition for bragging rights in their mastery of magic.

Just curious on what's the use of the website calendar?
I've revisited until the start of time (Jan 2015 actually), but have not seen any content, though I'm pretty sure we've had countless events since then.
Or is this filled-in by the player (but I don't think so. But if so, teach me please).
Or "plans are in the works" for this? Thanks!
