The woods are unfamiliar, and the lands are unknown. The paths are tangled and split, and you are stuck through a maze of sorts with nothing but a put-together costume.
It appears unknown to you, though both paths lead to the same clearing.
It appeared to be backed by two strange individuals.

Welcome to Bayloween 2022!
Bayloween is a yearly Autumnal festival that is hosted every October themed after the holiday of Halloween!
We hope you are able to hang around for the fun that will come this year!
Throughout the month, there will be many new opportunities for fun that arise. New activities will reveal themselves throughout the course of the event, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
But first, let's get started on participation!
- The eight art prompts are an optional but additional bonus to this event! Through each submission, you will earn special rewards, including Event Coins, which you can use to purchase items once the shop opens later in the month!
- Feral, anthro, Baykit, and Baysune Bayfoxes are all accepted for these prompts as long as the bayfox has a masterlist to be attached within each submission! Be sure to ask for permission before drawing a bayfox that isn't yours or a mascot, however!
In order to have access to the rest of the event, an entry prompt is required. Approval of this prompt will grant you with the Bayloween - 2022 ribbon which you can proudly display on your profile and also allow you access to the larger half of this event!
*Unlike other prompts, this prompt can only be completed once. Additional drawings of Bayfoxes in a costume can still count under the 'Trick or Treat' prompt from the additional prompt list.
ENTRY PROMPT: Draw your bayfox in their Halloween costume!
Depict your bayfox in their Halloween costume! As long as this accessory or outfit is new and not included in their masterlist reference it will count!
REWARD: 5 EC + Bayloween - 2022 Ribbon
You have the option to enter your Bayloween entry prompt into a costume raffle! The rules here are simple, just submit the drawing of your entry prompt to the google form attached below alongside the form filled!
The chance of winning is entirely random, and decided by RNG!
+1 Halloween Pockat
+6 Random Halloween Companions
+6 Halloween Potions
ADDITIONAL ART PROMPTS
As you sneak into the carnival, two strange faces reveal each other. While neither discloses their true identities, they offer you a simple task.
To experience the true sides of Halloween, both the festive and the freaky.
Eight Cards are passed your way, each requesting a different task on its backside.
You can earn a flat rate of 5 EC for every art submission that is submitted. Additionally, each prompt submission will reward with one mimic lootbox! Finish (backgrounds or shading, etc) can reward you with bonus EC!
For writing prompts, 500 words will grant you the basic 5 EC, for every 100 words after that you will earn an extra 1 EC. So if you write 2000 words, you can receive 20EC.
The rewards stack, and the more you complete, the more unique rewards you will receive! These prompts are NOT related to the entry prompt, meaning you will have to draw 8 unique prompts for the prompt list specifically. [9 artwork prompts total including the costume entry prompt]
These rewards are stacked on top of the default 5 EC + 1 mimic earned per each prompt.
- 1 Submission: 1 Halloween potion 1 bonus large mimic
- 3 Submissions: 500 seashells + 1 bonus large mimic
- 4 Submissions: 2 Halloween companions + 1 bonus large mimic
- 5 Submissions: 10 EC + 2 bonus large mimics
- 6 Submissions: 2 bonus large mimics
- 7 Submissions: 1000 seashells + 2 bonus large mimics
- 8 submissions: Halloween Pockat and 4 bonus large mimics
Mimics are the loot box feature exclusive to Bayloween 2022! These creatures have a rare chance of dropping additional loot boxes, some of which are rare enough to yield incredibly exclusive rewards such as various unlimited MYO slots! When opened, they also have a rare chance of dropping themselves, which can be attached to Bayfoxes like any other normal companion!
COMPLETION OF THE ENTRY PROMPT IS REQUIRED! YOUR BAYLOWEEN - 2022 RIBBON WILL BE CHECKED FOR!
Like past events, there is a new Questionaire for this event! Earn some EC and Companions by submitting in-character responses with your own Bayfoxes in a Bayloween Questionaire! All rules will be attached to the link below- be sure to read through them carefully! This is a fun way to explore the perspective of your Bayfoxes, and their unique attributes and background!

Just like last year, the mod team has worked together to being back our yearly tradition of Trick or Treating booths!
For the second half of the month (October 15th-October 31st) the moderation team will be running trick or treating booths for you to claim a Large Mimic lootbox reward!
If you remember how this works from past years, you should be good to go! But if you don't, It's rather simple! On the day a booth is open, simply reply to the open comment stating you're claiming with either a basic claim comment or an additional roleplay dialogue. ("Trick or Treat" or a simple "Claim" both work as basic responses!)
You're free to reply with additional, roleplay dialogue- in fact, doing so has a chance to yield an bonus lootbox reward! After 24 hours have passed, the comments of the day will close, and open the comments on the booths for the next day. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled as more booths open within the next few days!
[ROXAS' BOOTH] [XION'S BOOTH]
These booths are open on: October 15th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 27th, 30th, and 31st.
