Hey, everyone! VS Dave here.
They say that there are only two things you can count on in life: death & taxes. In Eville, taxes aren’t a problem if you’re the Mayor, because, well, you control them, and merchants are paying you for the privilege to sell their wares.
And death? Oh, there’s plenty of that. But chin up, because the afterlife in Eville is just as active as the world of the living!
In the movie Beetlejuice, upon death, the Maitlands received a copy of The Handbook for the Recently Deceased. And in that same… *ahem* … spirit, that’s exactly what we’re going to do with this blog!
A Guide to the Eternal Mists
Whether you met your end in your sleep as the Barbarian’s axe fell, or a poison slowly drained your health bar, the simple fact remains that you died. Let’s pause a moment to pour one out for our fallen friends.
However, death is not the end of your journey in Eville, because you now exist in the spirit world known as the Eternal Mists, and there is still much to do! Although your ghostly form can’t directly interact with the living, you can absolutely still affect the outcome of the match and help your team prevail.
As a ghost, you’ll notice a significant change in your jumping ability. Ghosts have mad hops! But there are other advantages as well, including new passive abilities unique to spirits. All ghosts start with the basics, but more advanced abilities can be learned… for a price, of course. Yes, death is not the end of capitalism, sadly.
The Eternal Mists is home to a skilled teacher who is more than willing to grant you new skills in exchange for spirit tokens. Perhaps you’d like to pass all of your earthly gold to a living player? Or maybe you’d like to wake a sleeping Villager before they’re murdered? There’s loads of options! Don’t worry, Conspirators. The Ghost Teacher has some shady abilities to share as well.
How about items? Sure, you can’t take it with you, but you can certainly replace it! Visit the Ghost Trader for all your spirit world essentials.
Spirit tokens are earned by completing quests, just as you did when you were alive. Hey, the dead have errands to run, too! For example, some lost souls by the river need help finding the light. And there’s a group of Villagers near the forest who need a good scare!
Remember, the game’s not over until a winning side has been determined, so complete your quests, earn those tokens, and spend, spend, spend!
