Halloween is a reoccurring holiday.

October 20

October 21

Various NPC's have hints at Halloween

You manage to distract him from his talk of "ten credits" and change the topic to Halloween. He seems… conflicted.

"I'm always excited about Halloween, but they keep moving the site. Can't it just come back here to the library?"

He nods, "yeah, we got the news that it's going to be off campus. Apparently Midgard doesn't know how to party… or don't like performance art."

He gives a bit of a scowl. "Looks like Midgard learned their lesson last year, not letting anybody inside. But their fingers are still going to be all over this, mark my words."

"Well, I have to work on my dissertation. It's taking long enough without me taking breaks."

"But, even if I didn't, I'd stay away from campus around Halloween. Some of the new students don't seem to realize, but… well, I won't say it's cursed, but only so many awful things can happen on Halloween before everyone notices the pattern."

She pauses for a moment before whispering "it seems like even Midgard figured it out, right?"

"Hmm? Oh, yeah, it's getting to be time for the big event." He shrugs and kicks back his over/under.

"Midgard and the University are playing hot potato. Neither of them want it on their premises, so they're both suggesting it be held at a rented site."

"Midgard's still neck deep in Halloween. They've asked," he pauses to slam an over/under to add even more emphasis to the word, "the students to move the festivities to near one of their buildings."

"Turns out they don't want hundreds of students moving through one of their buildings again. I can't imagine what security-minded individual might have convinced them to move things away."

"But," he taps the empty shotglass back and forth like a bored cat, "it goes clear up to the executive suites. I don't trust the rumors, but people are saying they've even got board members leaning in on this."

Her smile falters for a moment, then drops completely. "I got named Event Coordinator again this year, but Midgard and the museum staff aren't exactly returning my calls."

"Well, that's not fair. Midgard has helped us find a site we can do some work in. I was angling for one of the ballrooms in Silver Towers downtown, but they were already booked."

"So… it looks like we're back to decorating for ourselves and trying to keep things secure."

"I was actually pushing for it to move back here, but it's out of my hands."

"But I'm still glad I don't have to clean up afterwards again." She shakes her head. "Streamers everywhere."

You ask one of the guards about Halloween. He nods grimly. "It's not here this year, thank God. That means they can all turn right around and go back to pick up some Lattes! or whatever kids do now."
