A Tale In The Desert V Draws To A Close, Halloween Fun
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A Tale in the Desert V is heading into its final month before the launch of the unique MMORPG's version VI. The lead up to the final month will begin with a Welcome Back Weekend and a traditional ATiTD Halloween event featuring the eternal struggle between werewolves and villagers. Now in its fifth incarnation, the Egyptian themed game encourages players to cooperate as they work to solve a variety of puzzles.

We'll kick all of this off with a Welcome Back Weekend and a traditional ATITD Halloween event. The fun will start:

   Friday, Oct 28, beginning at 12:00 Noon EST (GMT-0500)

Werewolves in Egypt is a version of the party game known as Werewolf/Mafia/Assassin, adapted to a massively multiplayer environment. We'll play this starting:

   Saturday, Oct 29, beginning at 12:00 Noon EST (GMT-0500)

Those that sign up to play (by building a Mortuary Temple) are randomly split into Werewolves and Villagers. The game proceeds in night-day rounds of 15 minutes each. During night rounds, werewolves are active. They may:

  • Sniff a Mortuary Temple to get a fellow player's scent (3x/night)
  • Attack a player who's scent they have already gotten (1x/night)
During day rounds villagers are active. They may:
  • Vote to lynch a suspected werewolf. Villagers get 7 votes per day, and can place them all on one werewolf, or spread them around.
A few Villagers are also Seers. Seers have the ability to tell who is a werewolf, and they may use this special ability 4x/day.

Prizes will be distributed to the winning team - if Villagers win, prizes are based on how many Werewolves each Villager helped lynch. If the Werewolves win, then prizes are based on how many Villagers each Werewolf helped kill. This event is an absolute blast - don't miss it!

We're running a number of other events this weekend as well - check the in-game calendar for Decathlon, Reflection, Tug and other "conflict" contests.

Finally, mark your calendars - A Tale in the Desert VI will begin:

   Saturday, December 3, Beginning at 12:00 Noon EST (GMT-0500)
