Halloween is just around the corner and the MHMU has likely already begun their preparations for the spookiest and creepiest time of year. In order to do our part to get everyone into the spirit of things, we've decided to bring back the Allakhazam Pumpkin Carving Contest! Get your knives and scrapers ready in what should be a fun and exciting chance to display both your creativity and love for Vana'diel!
We are pleased to announce that Square Enix was able to secure a high-end gaming PC for us to offer as the grand prize in our Harvest Festival Pumpkin Carving contest!
How to Enter:
