In 2009 and 2010, fondly remembered MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning featured a Halloween event called Daemon Moon Rising. Fitting the Halloween theme it involved dressing up, with daemon masks that gave players a variety of different powers. It also involved playing football with a skull, because that’s Warhammer for you. The Daemon Cradle was a head that could be thrown from player to player and carried to a goal, where it would have to be protected from the opposing team to earn points. 

The Return of Reckoning team, who resurrected Warhammer Online after it was shut down in 2013, are planning to bring back Daemon Moon Rising for the first time this year—though it’ll be their own take on the event, with tweaked rewards, stats, and quests. The original took place in the Praag zone, but their version of daemonball will be in its own silo, “a closed scenario for players to play the event without encountering zergs and warbands” as they put it.
