Opponent Encounter Text Notes
Eclipse.jpg party%20skulls.jpg
As you make your way through the swamp, the water beneath your feet bubbles organically, white shapes floating to the surface. When the first turns towards you, revealing its empty eyes and ghastly grin, it's a bit of a shock.

But it's nothing compared to the feeling as dozens of them float around you, murky water dripping as they rise into the air.
Eclipse.jpg real%20gargoyle.jpg
You pass a sculpture in the fog and hear the sound of grinding stone. When you turn, the statue has vanished into the mists.

Moments later, you can see it perched on a small structure, staring down at you.
A woman approaches through the forest, strange gems embedded in her twinkling like so many stars. She looks disgusted by you, somehow, as though your very existence is an offense to her.

The pistol hanging limply in her hand seems like an afterthought, but she seems to panic after staring at you for a moment, bringing the pistol to bear.
After an attendee gets a tainted apple at Bobbing for Apples
A man approaches you, cybernetic wings glimmering with golden light. He smiles, raising a cane, as though beating you to death would be sweeter than the finest wine. After spiking the wine at Hallowine Pumpkin
A man approaches you, cybernetic wings glimmering in the ballroom's dim light. He seems confused for a moment, moving the wings as though he's expecting them to lift him into the air, then smiles and raises a cane as an alternative. After spiking the wine at Hallowine Pumpkin, and some other condition?
An agitated man in a costume including massive cybernetic wings approaches you. He seems to have taken offense at something, because he takes a swing at you with his cane. After angering people? Stealing too much wine?

As you pass through the forest, your splashing footsteps echoing off the trees, a massive skeletal form bursts from the water. Its roar leaves you transfixed as your conscious mind tries desperately to come up with an appropriate response to being attacked by a zombie dinosaur.

Probably running. Yeah, running sounds good, especially between these trees.

Gain 20 duration of Primeval Terror
While you haven't killed the dinosaur
A security guard, wearing a balaklava as what seems to be part of a failed ninja costume, pops out from between the trees, attempting to tackle you. When you sidestep the initial assault, he extends his baton with a tinny flick. After killing Mirrored Man
As you make your way through the party, a pair of guards leap out from either side. It was a pretty good ambush, but you can't help but think their costumes are going to their head a bit. After killing enough people?
