Whether you're in for frights or partaking in seasonal delights, the Harvest Festival is here once more in Vana'diel! The time to hunt for many gourds is back, and we hope it is time you could afford. For if you use the tricks of your trade that you've learned along your adventurous ways, you will be rewarded well; treats are another way to put it I'd say.

Locate one of the special pumpkins found in various places in Vana'diel and capture a screenshot of your character somewhere close to it to share with us! While no costumes are needed for this campaign, we implore you to use lockstyles, costumes, and even mounts all the same. Happy hunting, adventurers!
