Spooktober 2022

An ominous air hangs over the world, with the Necromancers of Totania fleeing their homes, crowding the streets to dress up and tell stories for their great holiday. The spookiest time of the year has begun, and it is time now to bring that energy to the tales of Totania, spreading the holiday spirit.   Welcome to the Totania Spooktober 2022 article hub. Enjoy the spooky (and, in some cases, non-spooky) tales and articles that populate this article, made from the start of the month through until Halloween.   To give five suggestions if you don't know where to start, here are five of my personal favorites:
  1. Queen of the Scarlet Mist- The Elven Queen who was betrayed by her usurper brother and turned into a vengeful spirit.
  2. March of the Orcs- The forceful removal of the Orcs from their land by the Elves.
  3. The Two-Faced Cult- The worshippers of the God of Duality and Portals, Janus.
  4. Farewell Tears- A poison that kills with laughter.
  5. Justice Hurts- A famous painting of a tearful duel between a student and his mindless mentor.
