    Awesome stuff, but where is the dark shaman costume? It would match very good to the setting

    Awesome! Love what's coming!

    BTW when can we have a sneak peak at the Event itself.

    The Lepidopterans are a sect of Azura cultists who conceal their features with elaborate butterfly masks. These have recently become a fad among the jaded youth of mainland Morrowind

    I love this little bit of flavor text. I can see the whole scene -- packs of goth Dunmer teens in their butterfly apparel, they know they're too cool to venerate Almalexia like a square.

    Because they're supposed to be "witches festival" themed items @LonePirate ;)

    (it doesn't really make sense, but really, I'm sure that's why)

    The description for the Shadowghost Guar seems to be for the pet (mentions following you around and that it's a pony guar... I don't think even the smallest Bosmer could ride comfortably on a pony guar!).

    A lot of good offerings! I'll have to get a lot of these. Ripperoni my wallet. Was hoping for a crow pet though. Maybe next month.

    Disappointing overall. No good costumes, polymorphs are all retreads from last year. Guess I get to keep saving my crowns.

    I WAS SO AFRAID THE SHADOWGHOST MOUNTS WOULD BE TRAPPED IN CRATES!

    It has absolutely, totally made my day that instead I can go broke at buying them at a set price! YES!

    Seriously, so glad to see these on the regular crown store rather than trapped in crates!

    Well, I have a completely opposite feeling. Since release of the first crown crates, the quality and uniqueness of mounts available for direct purchase have gradually decreased. Previously we had the Frostmare, we had the Dro-m'Athra senche etc. Now we have these boring recolored models while most of the cool, visually original mounts are locked behind the crates.

    Also the cottage - which Khajiit she has Fishmas plans for - it is still also available for gold coins yes?

    I wanted to ask the same question. Previously I thought they would add this costume to the current Crown Crates since it would also match their theme very well. But well... apparently Zenimax want all of us to look like this if we want to show off our skins/body markings:

    You are correct! Sorry about that, and nice catch. We're getting it fixed. :)

    Also, we identified that we missed a pet (the Shadowghost Pony pet will be sold) so we're getting that added as well. So much fun stuff!

    There might be some new festival rewards?

    Maybe a chance of it appearing there - just speculation though yes.

    The house in the showcase can also be bought in game for 250k gold if you have all the achievements of the witches festival.

    "There's one last secret brewing. This Frostfall, a rare celestial alignment will occur on Serpent 13 that the most superstitious in Tamriel call “Fatal Fredas." Some believe this day to be a portent of chaos and ill omen. What will it bring this time? None can know for certain, but all are watching and waiting… and so should you!"

    Interesting. While Friday the 13th crownstore sales have been a popular feature forever, I don't think we have ever had a prior warning. Does this mean that there is something extra special happening this time? I'm going to be excited for at least 11 days now.

    While I won't be picking them up, I'm really glad ZOS released a VERY COOL cycle of themed mounts this month that aren't in crates.

    The shadowghost senche and guar, in particular, look great.

    Same with the masks--I got the mask I wanted out (half-skull thing) of crown crates and probably won't go for these, but they look fantastic. Making quality options available for direct purchase is always appreciated.

    According to that written Morrowind guide it's October 13th to November 1.

    Keep in mind that written guide had the Midyear mayhem dates wrong... but it was only off by a couple days.
