Wordtober! 31 Days of Spooky Words


Let's play a little game! Below is a list of 31 words inspired by everyone's favourite spooky season. Use the daily word in a post every day for a spooky prize!

How it Works



Play it Straight


Use the daily word in a post and win a cute little icon and a snazzy custom title!

Notes:
  • The Spooky Word of the Day should be used on that day.
  • Exception: the first word can be used on either October 1st or October 2nd and still count as "day of."
  • There are no extra points for using a word multiple times or in multiple posts.
  • To be extra challenging, plurals and variations on a root word are NOT accepted -- so you can't use "superstitious" instead of "superstition." >:)



Consolation Corner


Even if you aren't able to post every day, or if you miss a day, you can still participate! Just use all 31 words in posts this month and you can still get a snazzy new custom title!

Notes:
  • Each post can only have one word that "counts."
  • That means if you have a single post and happen to include 5 words on the list, only one of those words can count for that post.
  • That means you need a minimum of 31 posts this month!
  • Plurals and word variants are allowed in consolation corner. :)

Icon and title prizes will be awarded to OOC accounts. The official 'Souls timezone is Eastern Time (which is currently in Eastern Daylight Time)!

  1. Copy and paste the word list in a reply to this thread.
  2. As the month progresses, update your post to link each word to the post that contains it.
  3. Please indicate the spooky word in your post either by bolding it or underlining it.
  4. If you aren't doing day-of word posts, please indicate it in your reply to this thread.

Overachievers are welcome to link some kind of fancy spreadsheet concoction, but this is certainly not required!



Q&A



Q. Can posts be written or posted ahead of time? What if you know you'll be away from the computer for a few days?

A. Posts need to be posted day-of to count.

You can draft and save posts ahead of time using the board's draft feature and just hit post on the appropriate day (via phone, if needed), but be courteous to your RP partners. (Writing in advance and then withholding the post for a long time isn't great!)

Q.Do LASKY posts count?

A. Yes.

*trips and falls at the last second into consolation prize territory* D:

Notes: #1-12 are actually posted in a row, in the same thread, and I only linked to each individual post just in case.
EDIT: Well, I actually just now noticed, per the last tweetnouncement, that I had been messing up on the whole Eastern Time bit the whole time, LMAO. Yep, definitely in the consolation category.

01. terrifying
02. grotesque (This post was actually made at 11:59pm, 34 minutes after my initial post in the thread, and for some reason the forum combined the two posts and added that line divider of its own accord.)
