'til the end o' Halloween, losin' a puzzle challenge to a brigand or pirate who has been affected by the vampirate curse will force ye to become a hand o' thar horde! Telltale signs o' havin' contracted vampirism include sharp fangs, abnormal eye colors 'n insatiable thirst fer blood. Mwa har har!
But fear nah, fair pirates, as thar be hope! Any vampirates who are bested in battle by a pure-blooded mortal will find themselves cured o' thar affliction, wit' no permanent damage!

Everyone who participates will be eligible fer a fantastic, one-o'-a-kind trophy at the end o' the event, so be sure to sink yer teeth in afore 'tis too late!
