The Spooky CarnivalPosted 18 October 2022, 16:08:50 CDT by Gingerkingfisher
>The sound of kem’s cheerful shouts fills the air, it seems the spooky carnival is in town!
Welcome one and all to this year's Spookiest of Carnivals! Inside you'll be able to play haunting games to your heart's content.
Long, long ago, before such games were commonplace, these days of the veil's thinning were often met with nothing but fear and apprehension. For nothing terrified mortals than when an angry or, worse, bored specter came to visit. In truth, such ghostly beings held little malice towards mortals but... they lived no longer. They could not experience our world as we could. And, at times, it grew so dreadfully dull on the other side. So, the only bit of fun to be had came when the veil weakened and they could finally alleviate their boredom by playing with mortals.
However... often such beings cannot feel as they once did and, without remorse or thought or care of how the creatures they interacted with felt, they simply did as they pleased. And played games upon games on games. And so the living cowered whenever the realm of the spirits opened up.
Until one day, when a kit caught outside unawares inadvertently asked a spirit to play a game with them. Such an offer immediately caught the spirit's attention and the two played the game till after the sun sank beneath the horizon and the young kemata had to go home. The next day, the kit went out once more and played their games, however, this time the spirit had boasted of their experience the previous day and curious ghosts joined in the young kit's games.
Days passed and fewer and fewer spirits bothered the living. Cautious curiosity gripped their hearts and they ventured outside their homes for the first time in known history. Eventually, they discovered the kit and a horde of specters. However, the kit was not scared. Rather, they had a smile on their muzzle, wide as the sea and carefree as the sun. They simply played their beloved games with their newfound friends.
And so, cautiously, kems adopted these games. They played with each other and spirits when the veil wore thin. And thus, we have continued to play these games to this day.
Is this tale true? Well... enter the carnival and find out for yourselves!

You gather all of your favorite fall gear and begin to wonder about how you will spend this season. Making leaf piles? Chasing out those hard to reach monsters? Shooing away all the bugs that have made their homes inside yours??? Where will you start?! Your mind begins to race when suddenly, the calming reminder of specialty coffees come to mind. Oh yes, the pumpkin spiced one, the maple flavors, the warm pumpkin lattes, you begin to drool at the thought. All the other stuff can wait! First, lets have coffee!
