Halloween Event!

Halloween Event 2013


One of my favourite times of the year is upon us! Let's celebrate in style.


Who knew that vampire lovers like zombies so much? A high demand for a zombie event has made me decide to have one again this Halloween.

CALLING ALL DEAD CITY VAMPIRES! Zombies have again started to fight their way through the portal and spreading across the Dead City. Stop them from coming in and spreading too far. Each vampire can defeat 75 zombies a day, we need as many vampires fighting back the horde as we possibly can! Head to the Dead City [Zombie attack!] link to fight!

Zombie Kills

Kill up to 75 zombies per day. If you kill a zombie that isn't too rotted, you can  slice off their head and take them to Dempan at the Dead City. He wants them. You can also earn your coven experience helping to fight off the horde.

FREE Trick Or Treat

Once a day you can get a FREE trick-or-treat. Although the treats outweigh the tricks, it's a gamble. You must suffer (if any) consequences! Spooky, eh? Use at your own risk.

Head Collector

So you got some zombie heads from killing zombies? Head to the [Head Trading] Dead City link to trade your zombie heads.

Halloween Profiles

Have you created a halloween profile this month? You can show it off at the halloween profile page. By entrering this months competition, your profile will be displayed on this page. You can still enter by going to the competition page.

You also have the ability to give one thumbs up to another profile that you like per day. (This does also show up on your profiles.)

View the Halloween section of the Dead City for full information of the events features.

Halloween Special!

Halloween wouldn't be the same without the ability to buy some VIP and plasma at great prices. Over the last couple of weeks the amount of "When is the Halloween special going to happen?" I've had. Well... now! Head over to Buy VIP/Plasma page to see all the available special packs. All the packs come with extra goodies on top of the VIP and Plasma. (P.S there is a little bonus that you can get that's explained when you buy a plasma pack this special.)

The event will continue until Monday 4th November. Enjoy!

Further New Layout Notices

Just in case you've not noticed yet, we've got a gorgeous new in-game layout. After launching and receiving (rather overwhelmingly) positive feedback, we did make a couple changes and some compromises. Here are a few more changes to it:

  • Coven pages still not working? Change your layout back to RoB-Lite or Gargoyle and go back, or click here. (Azz has come up with some new coven code also.)
  •  The top info bar solved some problems, but created others (depends on how you personally play the game.) So there is now an extra option to have the top bar floated at the top of the page.
  • Homepage screenshots have been updated.

I've also got some interesting stuff in the works, especially for high ranked players.

Enjoy the event

New In-Game Layout (Updated)


New In-Game Layout!

Reign Of Blood started in 2006 with a layout theme which is now called 'RoB-Lite' (A fan favourite.) In 2009 a new more graphical interface was created. Now that it's 2013, it's time for another one. This new layout is more geared to the current 'Gorgoyle Theme' users. RoB-Lite users still love RoB-Lite, and I wouldn't want to change that.

"Don't fix what ain't broke." A common feedback line. I personally am completely against it. Things can always be improved. So, what's different about this layout?

  • New top header images, new side background, and new footer
  • Has the same structure as before. So it feels new, but also very similar
  • Few small changes to left sidebar, including new images
  • Portal link added to the top navigation
  • Main content area is a little wider to support 'wider' future features
  • Game blog posts moved to top for easy viewing when new post is made
  • Created with maximum compatibility with current profiles

I can also happily announce that I have removed Chill-Out from the top navigation on RoB-Lite and replaced it with the Portal.

You can change to any of the 3 themes on the account page at any time.


Thanks for all the great feedback on the new layout! I have made a few changes and fixes, listed below:

  • Footer image now saved locally, and no longer appearing at the bottom of profiles
  • Coven and house CSS issues have been resolved
  • Made the red & green bar images a little brighter
An issue that some players have (especially ones with smaller resolution displays) is that you have to scroll down to see some stuff. That's always kind of been an issue. Reign Of Blood has a lot of content, and most of it does need to be displayed on the left. I am never going to create a 3rd column down the right, so that's simply out of the question. I have however, come up with a nice compromise.

Introducing, the new top info bar:

Using the new layout, you can enable this bar (it is on by default) which displays the game time, quick heal/suicide links, blood hour notification, and your general notifications (news, blood letters etc.) I hope you like this handy little addon. You can disable this by going to your account page.

A big thanks to Azzazel Aesculus for supplying the beautiful artwork for this new layout. Please continue to post any feedback or glitches on this thread, thank you!

September Competition Results

Thank you to everybody who submitted quest ideas last month. I've read through them all, and recorded all the ones I liked. I have given each of the top quest ideas 2 plasma each! You should see your quests (or quests based on your ideas) very soon.

Halloween Profiles/October Competition Reminder

Halloween is soon upon us! Don't forget that this months competition to win plasma is to have an awesome Halloween profile! I've even got one. If you've entered into this months competition, then you might as well enter Mayne's competition as well, he's giving away some IG cash for the same thing.

Google Checkout Shutdown/OneBip Issues

Just a heads up, early next month, Google Checkout are shutting down. (Which works out for the best overall, as they're a pain.) I have a replacement lined up, but I assure all the Google Checkout users, your card will work with REALEX. (Our recommended payment option.) More information next month. I am also aware of the problem some UK players are having with OneBip. My support request is still pending, but hopefully I'll get this fixed ASAP.

Have a great week!
