Wololo Wednesday Winner: October 2017! November Challenge Annoucement

Wololo Wednesday, Warriors! Welcome to the installment where I unveil the winners of the Spooky Halloween theme. So go on, grab your pumpkin bucket and Halloween candy (share the Skittles, please!), and let’s get started!




But…where is everyone? Trick or treat?!




A small town in the desert encounters a severe drought. Their sole source of water, a river that flows to the east, dries up and leaves parched dirt and dry mouths. The lack of water takes a heavy toll and the town’s residents weaken. Many die, so the local priest proposes a sacrificial ritual to restore their good fortune. Five young women are slaughtered on the cliffs overlooking the town. Their blood waters the ground, but the river remains dry. Enraged the towns folk seize the priest and place his decapitated head on a pike in the middle of the streets. As the once strong militia falters, the town becomes easy prey for organized bandits. Within a week the whole town is torched and the entire population is slaughtered. The only living thing that remains is a small patch of pumpkins, cursed to rot in the heat of burning fires.

The Town Square, with the executed priest and the dried river bed to the east.

The Grave Yard, where the bodies are piled high and the putrid stench fills the air.

The tainted land where the sacrifice occurred. It overlooks the rotting pumpkin patch and a small mining camp.

Something a bit more cheerful, the Happy Halloween in my Egyptian city of Abydos; shrines, gardens, obelisks and a small pyramid surrounded by haunted trees and smiling pumpkins.
Brings back lots of good memories. :)




Would you go treat-or-treating in this spooky ghost town ?
Happy halloween everyone >:)
