Transylvania and her escorts escaped the Realm of Darkness, but Dark Forces have followed them home! Fight off waves of sinister ships and planes while buying precious time for the arcane towers to complete their ritual and seal the Portal for good!
Will the Realm of Light survive?
Pt. II: A Sunray Through the Dark
Starts with Update 0.6.12.1 on October 25
Ends with Update 0.6.13
Part II puts you at the helm of one of four new vessels as you defend three arcane towers from encroaching forces and the Filth, a dark cloud of corrupted magic that pours from the Portal. Although the Filth regenerates enemy ships from the Realm of Darkness, entering the Filth yourself inflicts damage over time. The longer the battle, the more the Filth spreads. Destruction of an arcane tower prolongs the time it takes for the Portal to close. Defending the towers should be your top priority!
Rasputin returns with her Zikasa hordes. This time they’re not alone! The dreaded aircraft carrier Great Gorgon joins the assault with her legion of Ghoul destroyers, Scarab cruisers, and Varg battleships!

Closest Earth Counterpart: Mikasa
Zikasas represent the expendable swarms of Rasputin's fleet. They overwhelm with sheer numbers rather than individual firepower!

These cursed destroyers comprise Great Gorgon's advance strikeforce, using the cover of the Filth to launch devastating assaults.

An ancient evil animates these ancient ruins and keeps them afloat.

Legend says that Varg vessels are reanimated from the bones of eldritch leviathans from the deep. These battleships provide the heavy firepower for Great Gorgon's fleet.
Luckily, you’ve got new allies on your side too! Choose from the destroyer Urashima, cruiser Svyatozar, battleship Magnu-S, or carrier Nobilium. Each vessel rocks otherworldly skills unseen outside of the Realm of Light and comes with a special 19-point Commander.

Closest Earth Counterpart: Chapayev
Closest Earth Counterpart: Tirpitz

About that last one...
For those who gaze upon our Halloween Scenario ships and long to have them in their ports, these camos are for you! Each permanent camouflage modifies certain ships.
Destroyer Wakatake: Blade
Battleship Nassau: Jackal
Cruiser St. Louis: Igor
Destroyer Kagero: Urashima
Cruiser Chapayev: Svyatozar
Battleship Tirpitz: Magnu-S
Carrier Lexington: Nobilium
Destroyer Benson: Ghoul
Cruiser Charles Martel: Scarab
Battleship Bismarck: Varg
Carrier Shokaku: Great Gorgon
All of the above can be found in Halloween Pumpkin Containers. Each one grants the same bonuses as other permanent camouflage for the respective ship! If you're the proud owner of Imperator Nikolai I, you can scoop up Rasputin permanent camouflage for 4,000 !
Duplicates are Dumb
If you pull a permanent Halloween camo you already own, the Container will randomly select another permanent Halloween camo. If you already own all permanent Halloween camos, you'll get a payout of 2,500 to 5,000 instead!
