Nights of the Dead 2012 will run from 10/11/2012 through 11/5/2012. 
The Nights of the Dead are here! So many frights, decorations and illusions. So many changing faces! Because you know, we haven't always enjoyed such a frivolous night of beasts and masks. It is on these nights that instead we enjoy midnight banquets and parades of costumes in observation of the undead assault upon the streets of Maj'Dul. The attack upon Maj'Dul happened long ago in the early days of the Age of Destiny. A story that leaves more questions than answers.
'Twas a clear and still night in the desert. A shambling army of undead inundated the city of Maj'Dul. The city hid themselves from the walking dead, for fear of what this force was there to do. Kill? Kidnap? Desecrate? Feed? And those that did not huddle in fear battled the innumerable undead to defend their city.
The citizens soon took notice that the decaying bodies were not harming anyone, except for those that stood in their way. The ghastly figures would break down doors, and rummage through all of a person's possessions, smashing anything open that was otherwise latched or sealed. This was to last a week, when as mysteriously as they came, they departed. They turned in mid action, and shuffled back to the sands from which they came, as if answering a ghoulish cry.
The people of Maj'Dul never learned what it was that the undead were looking for, nor what they finally found. But we commemorate that week of monsters and frights in search of goodies in old Maj'Dul with our own week of beasts and treats. That helps to explain the harmless fun that surrounds us. Now to join in it!
