Good Afternoon EUW and EUNE,
I will be your host this evening during your journey through this thread.
Before we start, let me introduce myself, my name is DELDE115, and every year I make threads like these for each holiday League of Legends celebrates, though, with a new formula.
Now, if you are a new player, stick around for just a little longer, as I have things to tell you! As for veteran players that know what this thread is about, you can skip this part and move to the marked area ---> (>^_^)> <---- The spooky ghost.
So, what is all this about you may ask. Well it´s pretty simple, with every year, there are special holidays the world celebrates, holidays like Halloween, Christmas/Hanukkah, Chinese New Year, and so on. However, Runeterra, the world of League of Legends also celebrates holidays quite similar! We have the Harrowing, Snowdown and the Lunar Revel.
I make these threads simply to give people a heads up for what is to come, what we should expect from the event and what goodies we get in return. I also make these threads because I find that this is very important information that every player should know.
The reason I make such a big deal out of these threads is because you cannot find this information ANYWHERE within the League of Legends Website, you either have to go to Riots Support page OR visit previous year event promo pages, and I don´t find the information very accessible for NEW PLAYERS that are getting into League of Legends, and I wish Riot could find a solution to this "problem".
Now that my introduction has finished, let me be the first one to tell you to enjoy what´s about to come. If you have seen my previous Snowdown Thread from last year, well... get ready for round 2.
(>^_^)> Spooky ghost <(^_^<)

|New players, come forth and sit tight,|
|Grab some popcorn and a flash light!|
|As I will explain to you the event you will soon experience, known to all as The Harrowing!|
|We´re in October and people have done it as a child or teen,|
|That´s right! The Harrowing is League´s very own Halloween!|
|If you feel connected,|
|Then there is much to be expected!|
|Both tricks and treats will appear through this event,|
|And you won't even have to spend a cent!|
|(the lights go off!)|
|The Harrowing in Runeterra is known differently throughout the land,|
|Though never recognized as something grand.|
|While these past years have been somewhat friendly,|
|The nature of this phenomenon is often quite deadly...|
|So, keep a sharp eye while things are still vivid,|
|Cause you´ll probably stop being amongst the living...|
|Here is the start of a new tradition.|
|An idea considered brand new,|
|Created by a master tactician!|
|[This was Riot´s first BOO!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5Uv1K_CmNw)|
|Our journey this year heads down a darker path,|
|[For Nocturne has join in on the spooky fun.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q41PxYlsQtI)|
|Good luck surviving this bloodbath,|
|Cause when the Rift goes black... RUN!|
|Everything has an origin in Runeterra,|
|Some so old that turn to exile,|
|But now it´s time for a new era,|
|[It´s time for the SHADOW ISLES!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoBoNtPIxe4)|
|Nothing special came this year,|
|As no threat had come near,|
|Because no monster could get past by,|
|Piltover´s finest, Officer Vi!|
|[The Shadow Isles, the birth of the Harrowing,](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2FFGBPXNeU)|
|No one is safe from this event, now haunting,|
|As this holiday is no longer worth partying.|
|Need to take a break?|
|[How about a movie?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-_fNivZXno)|
|The undead now awake,|
|God was that spooky.|
|Now is the time to be careful,|
|So, try to lower your voice level.|
|Morgana and Tristana have created something special,|
|[Something known as League´s very own Devil!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtAV8FGjKR0)|
|The Harrowing is ever present, once the warm days start to disappear.|
|(The land starts to die around you).|
|Those aware of what´s coming, show emotions of constant fear,|
|(As goosebumps start to come through).|
|These occurrences are nothing new, for those that survived last year.|
|(Like a sensation of voodoo).|
|(It lurks around, floating in the atmosphere).|
|Now If you excuse me, I must go in a hurry,|
|As Twilight is fast approaching.|
|Don’t fear, there is nothing for you to worry,|
|As you will experience first-hand, this event, now unfolding.|
|You needn't find shelter,|
|Cause you ´re in the center...|
|Don’t try running,|
|As its now coming.|
|It´s here! And its presence is Horrifying!|
|Ladies and Gentleman... Welcome to The Harrowing!|
Now, you may be asking yourselves... What´s with all the champion skin videos? Well summoners, every single skin you just saw will be available for purchase during The Harrowing event, both in the form of multiple bundles or sold separately (your choice).
HAVE FUN AND ENJOY!
Personal thanks to those who supported my Snowdown thread from last year. I´m worried that this thread might not live to the expectations, however, I feel confident that you have enjoyed this one as well.
So, I have nothing else to say but thank you for taking your time to read my thread. And before I officially finish this thread, I want to say that I am working on a Snowdown thread right now! Though, it will obviously be very different from last year!
Now if you excuse me I really have to go now cause I'm being chased by SPOOKY SCARRY SKELETONS!!!
######Cheesy outro, CHECK!
HAPPY HARROWING SUMMONERS!!!!
