A Very Gooey Halloween (06/10/2015)

Most glorious greetings to you gallant, good people everywhere!
Happy Halloween!

Adventurers throughout the middle lands prepare themselves for another ghoulishly ghastly Halloween festival gorged with goodies galore!

Whether they're trick-or-treating or handing out candy, this year's Halloween is sure to have something to satisfy the sundry soft spots of Vana'diel's citizenry.

This year's festival will feature the Pink Masquerade costume contest, replete with a resplendent range of prizes for all of Vana'diel's most radiant adventurers.

So slip on your most splendid suit and try your luck in this special competition!

The chief jurors presiding over the contest may surprise some, but we've been rigorously reassured that they'll do their very best with the limited experience they have.

We hope to see you all in your most regal raiments, outlandish outfits, and glorious getups at Pink Masquerade!

Greetings and salutations-wations! Konana here from the Tarutaru Times.

Summer has truly galloped by in a cloud of dust-aru. I hope this missive finds you all in perfect health-wealth!

Also, good news, everyone! Your ever-diligent Konana may be up for promotion soon.

That's rightaru! If my next story-wory goes well, you may soon be reading the excellent words of none other than Konana, Resident Assistant Regional Managing Editor-in-Chief of the Tarutaru Times!
"Resident...Managing...Chief..." I love the sound of that.

With that in mind, you can rest assured that I've had all the underlings work extra hard on this story-wory.

Believe me folks, you can't miss this special scoop-woop. We have received a cutting-edge Tarutaru Times-exclusive rumor that the beloved Buffalo Bonanza Ranch may be facing bankruptcy!

That's rightaru, you heard it here first, folks! As the ranch gears up for another busy Blazing Buffaloes season, financial trouble-wouble appears to be brewing on the horizon.

But rest assured. Thanks to my in-depth investigation, we feel confident to reportaru that this year's Blazing Buffaloes will be held at the B.B. Ranch as planned.

Break out your long lassos and silver spurs, this year's festival-westival is right around the corner!

With out further ado, here is our special reportaru from Blazing Buffalo Ranch.
