When the crypt goes creak and the tombstones outside the cantina quake, you'll know it's time for the Galactic Moon Festival! Beginning October 14th, residents of Star Wars Galaxies can take a shuttle to Moenia and Mos Eisley and celebrate the Galactic Moon Festival in style...if you dare!
Galactic Moon Festival
In an effort to gain more support from the planets Naboo and Tatooine, Jabba the Hutt has decided to throw the first annual Galactic Moon Festival so everyone can celebrate the horrifyingly awesome haunts of the season.
Jabba has grown tired of all the love festivals, celebrations of life, and other saccharine events. Thus, it is my duty to report to you that he has taken it upon himself to throw the scariest festival of the year! Jabba has sent me, Aponte, to give you a quick preview of some of the great things he has planned for the big celebration.
In order to participate in what is sure to be the "ghoulest" happening this year, all citizens have to do is visit the Galactic Moon Festival Organizers that can be found outside of the Moenia and Mos Eisley starports (waypoints 4790 -4777 and 3523 -4806 respectively).
Here, citizens can obtain a costume to use for trick or treating, purchase special Galactic Moon Festival items, and find out more about the festival.
All costumes have a thirty minute timer, which will give you plenty of time to wander around and take in all of the frightening sights and sounds the Galactic Moon Festival has to offer. Costumes can be worn outside the city but will be removed upon combat.... Jabba doesn't want anyone mucking up his property!
The costumes that are available have been specially chosen by Jabba himself for this great galactic fright fest. If you don't like the costume the organizer has given you, right click the icon to cancel it (similar to canceling a buff), wait a few minutes and try again! Just don't tell Jabba you didn't like your costume...a festival is no time to be eaten by a rancor.
If you're in a trick or treating mood, be sure to approach any poor unfortunate souls hanging around and say "Trick or treat!" If your greeting isn't frightful enough, you may want to try using a Trick or Treat device. The person on the receiving end of your trick will be sorry they didn't like your costume, that's for sure!
Galactic Moon Festival Organizer
If your costume is fearful enough, citizens will have Galactic Moon Festival coins to give you which can be used to purchase special holiday items that the organizer has to offer.
The organizer, Z'ozpheratu, has plenty of unique items on offer. You better get to trick or treating, though, because some items are much more expensive than others. A sample of items on offer by the organizer include house decorations, bat pheromones, Sith O' Lanterns, and my personal favorite, a brand new sign for you to hang outside of your house.
My house is distinguishable not just because it's called "Aponte's House" but because of the great new sign I have hanging out front!
To change the sign on your house to the new Crescent Moon House Sign, radial your new sign and select the change sign option. If you want your old sign back, use the terminal inside your building to replace it. The Crescent Moon House Sign that is being replaced will show up in your inventory.
Max Rebo's Collected Classics: Dirge
For entertainers like myself, Jabba has graciously made the last of Max Rebo's songs available for purchase from the organizer.
Sold exclusively to Entertainers, this song is sure to be a hit at parties and ghoulish gatherings year round!
Other Tricks and Treats
There are plenty of other tricks, treats, sights, and sounds to be had during the Galactic Moon Festival but Jabba would literally kill me if I were to spoil them all for you. As you explore Moenia and Mos Eisley be sure to watch out for any grim grinning ghosts that might materialize before your eyes.
Who knows what terror awaits you around the next corner...
Be sure not to miss out anything during this phantasmic festival! Season screamings everyone!
