<p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">A year ago, Sapphirius, Zilvrae, and I collaborated on <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?&topic_id=434807" target="_blank">this haunted house project</a>.  I've added a few new touches to the old place, and it's well worth checking out again, or for the first time if you'e never been!</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002808.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">In every room now, there's a handy book to tell you all about the area you've foolishly wandered into alone.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002809.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">This Ulteran mannequin has been put to good use displaying Nights of the Dead gear from this year and years past, backed by a pair of the new hedgemaze tapestries.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002810.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">This deathly figure now wanders the house.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002811.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">I've changed the chandelier in here to this more FPS-friendly type.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002815.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Since fog isn't on by default, I've placed this thingy at the top of the basement stairs all descrete like.  Can visitors use this?  I hope so. </span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002817.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">The maze has been updated with a few wineracks replaced with vamp mirrors and a bit of hazy fog.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002818.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">I dunno how many crows he's scaring down here, but he sure makes me jump!</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002820.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">In addition to Raven here, screech boxes were placed here and there throughout the maze for additional effect.  SCREECH!</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002821.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">The emo vampire room here got a few new touches, and a handy quick-return portal to get folks back upstairs without having to re-trek through the misty maze.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002824.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">From here, you just jump down and then continue your explorations upstairs.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002825.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Didn't have any good ideas for the new room, so I've just blocked it off for now.</span></span></p><p><img src="http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y122/iesmeh/Haunted%20House/updates%202009/EQ2_002829.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Lastly, I plugged a snazzy Temple of Life model into this...  whatever it is, up in the Laboratory.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">You can find the Bayle Court Haunted Mansion at <strong>2 Bayle Court in South Qeynos on the Antonia Bayle server under Arilou</strong>.  Rent is paid up for the next month, so before Frostfell is upon us once again, go take a peek!</span></span></p>

<p>Well, it is the time of year for this sort of thing, so sure.  I'll open it up for a couple months.  I haven't heard anything yet this year, but the Vagabond Knights tend to host roleplayed guided tours of this attraction each Nights of the Dead season, which is a lot of fun!</p>
