October of 2020 at TarValon.Net saw a significant increase in activity. Also, many people are getting excited about the end of the month and the Halloween celebrations!


During this month there were many exciting things happening:

  • Discord has officially replaced IRC as TarValon.Net’s primary real-time chatting tool. We now have an official Discord server that you can join here.
  • The Merit Badges for October were announced and many people were awarded merits in different categories. You can check all of them in Part One and Part Two in Site Announcements.
  • A mysterious announcement with the title “Coming Soon…!” has appeared, written by Erin al'Denael. Keep an eye out for our upcoming blog post all about this mysterious event!
  • The Executive Branch and the Board of Directors at TarValon.Net have postponed all live events until further notice, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, to prevent any of its members getting infected. You can read more about it in the announcement regarding 2021 events.
  • More exciting things will be coming next month, so keep your eyes peeled for the Tar Valon Times Takeover, starting November 1, 2020.
