Funcom's take on traditional autumn MMORPG events is decidedly more John Carpenter than Robert E. Howard, but it's nevertheless a fair bit of fun. The annual Night of Lost Souls has proven a popular diversion with Age of Conan players over the last couple of years, and Funcom is bringing it back with a trio of quests and new reward items.
This year you'll be able to embark on two solo quests and a team quest, all designed to bring you face-to-face with three of Hyboria's gruesome lost souls. Speaking of faces, the new reward items include social items like a pictish weapon made of bone and a severed head, a gnarly skull armor helmet, and a spectral visage pet.
The blood-curdling festivities kick off on October 22nd and run through November 2nd. Log into Age of Conan and type /claim, then examine the resulting "partially-translated page" to kick off your first quest. You can also read more about the event on the official boards.
