Autumn's Twilight Harvest Festival
October 1, 2011 (Saturday 12pm) - October 2, 2011 (Sunday 5pm)
This looks to be a throwback to the old-style of Realms weekend. A full weekend of questing during the day, followed by a feast, with even more questing that night. Even better is that the next day has even more questing, but before that has an awesome pancake breakfast as part of the event fee. In fact, I'm not sure how they are going to be able to provide 2 full meals and 2 days of questing all for only $20, but its not my money so I won't be losing the money.
As for the questing, it does not appear to be part of an ongoing plotline. This means we (new and old players) can all go without knowing what to expect. We can all be astounded by what we encounter without any preconceived notions. And we can all discover the quest together. This should be a really good weekend of fun!
