MMORPG Halloween Events 2012!
Halloween is a magical time in the MMOverse. Practically every game out there does a little something for the holiday. There are so many of these events in fact it can be a bit hard to keep track of them all. Have no fear, we here at OnRPG have been doing that for you. So, have a look in our list of Halloween events for your favorite game. I’ve put it in alphabetical order, just to make it easier to find the game you want. If your game isn’t listed that means one of two things, either they aren’t having a Halloween event or we somehow missed it.
