Bug Fixes

Update - Thursday, October 22, 2009

Halloween 2009

When the harvest is in and the moon sails high
And the shadows begin to lengthen
Mad King Thorn’s games begin! His minions ride!
His grip on the land will strengthen
But all is not well on this Halloween
It stirs in the Underworld’s gloom
An ancient evil, long unseen
If awakened, it spells our doom
Do partake in the Mad King’s revelry
But take care in the jack o’ lantern glow
For this is the season of devilry
And something wicked lurks deep below
