Haunted House Event!

March 24 2019



In 2012, I created "Trellium Catastrophe", a Star Trek themed Haunted House style ground based mission in The Foundry, Star Trek Online's custom mission generator.  That year, 24 teams comprising a total of 48 fleet members ran the gauntlet of Vulcans turned zombie, in my haunted house and competed for the quickest mission completion time, which averaged around 15 minutes.  We gave away huge amounts of Zen as prizes!  The mission was so popular that it became the foundation for Stonewall's annual Halloween event that I've run every year since 2012!

With the STO devs announcing the sun-setting of the Foundry next month, this will be the last time we're able to take the haunted house out for a spin.  It represents hundreds of hours of development time for me, so I wanted to give it one last hurrah before it disappears into oblivion.  So, on Saturday, March 30th and Sunday, March 31st, starting at 2:00 PM Eastern time on both days and running until I can't keep my eyes open, I'll be running teams of two through my haunted house, one last time, and I'd really appreciate it if you came out to give this "Half-way to Halloween Haunted House" event a good, final send off!


We'll take you and one other fleet member on a guided, ground-based, haunted-house style foundry mission.  Your mission is to save those who can be saved amongst a crew of Vulcans who've been exposed to Trellium-D, a dangerous neuro-toxin.  You and your partner will be given a handful of objectives to complete and the teams that complete this creepy mission the fastest, will win amazing prizes!  Although no talking is required if you're not setup for it, we strongly recommend that you join us in our Discord channel for your run, as we manually operate background music and sound effects during the mission that make it an immersive experience!

  • Pick up some hypos and ready yourself for a ground mission!
  • Setup Discord for listening (and talking of you like!)
  • Pick a friend or partner (or ask us to help you find one)
  • Be in-game either Saturday, March 30th or Sunday, March 31st after 2:00 PM Eastern (Click here for your timezone)
  • DM me (Voleron) either in-game or on Discord and I'll run you through the event!



No event would be a great event without some super loot!  As previously mentioned, this is a timed, ground-based mission on advanced difficulty.  Everybody who participates will get an in-game zombie survival themed loot kit from us, and the three teams with the TOP completion times will earn the following rewards:

  1. 1st Place: Each team member will receive 10x Master Keys!
  2. 2nd Place: Each team member will receive 5x Master Keys!
  3. 3rd Place: Each team member will receive 3x Master Keys!

The Lady Aelynnor shall attend, bringing her hordes of menacing, but rather cheap and disposable, drones that shall consume all in that house. Sorry, who were supposed to be the horrors again?

Oh great!

We are looking forward to this event, ah meaning, we feel a shivering scary discomfort waiting for it!
Admiral T'Lara and Captain Hippiepunk are ready for the rescue!

Aethra is really not feeling good about this. Probably someone something he ate. But he'll be there.

The Lady Aelynnor surveys her high tea. There is only one language these fools bow to, and she speaks it fluently. Who shall be her partner in murder and mayhem?

No new pictures to post or anything, just shamelessly bumping this thread because I'm looking forward to doing this Saturday and/or Sunday and everyone else should be, too.

Think I fixed what bugged me most about Jon Pertwee, his stance was too soldiery and the grey skin could be so much greener.

Jamal al-Fayed has slipped into his zombie hunting outfit. His cute dog is with him, because otherwise he'd be way too scared to hunt zombies.

Aethra's face after falling off a walkway and realizing he forgot where the stairs were.

This is a re-enactment of actual events. Some pixels may have been changed to protect my poor innocent partner, Wrigs.

Thanks, Voleron! And our gracious, yet terrifying, host Joogoo/Traull. If anyone hasn't done this yet, do it! It's fun even when your partner is, like me, a moron.

You know the best place for a haunted house run is Drozana's lower levels, lol.

I had fun, Thanks Host Voleron and Team mate Kalen for fun time. I enjoyed the music and voice overs hehehe.

Yeah, that was fun! The scary kind of fun... I didn't know that Vulcans could be possessed (that word is scary too - so many ssss). Thank you Voleron and Thrall for doing this! And the voicing is great - you really expanded the foundry. Hehe.

A HUGE thank you to all of the 13 teams and 26 Stonewallers who came out to support my Halloween Haunted House event before the sun-setting of the Foundry.  I really hope that you all enjoyed yourselves.  If you're a relative late-comer to the Foundry and enjoyed what you played, I'd encourage you to play some of the other amazing Stonewall authored foundry missions, some of which are listed in our Foundry Folder (you'll need to login to the site to view it).



Congratulations to the top three teams on their placements, some of whom just inched out other teams by a few, meager seconds!

  1. 1st Place: Kalen & Sqweloookle will receive 10x Master Keys!
  2. 2nd Place: Saintplazma & Star Trek Fan will receive 5x Master Keys!
  3. 3rd Place: Calx & Chipz will receive 3x Master Keys!


All remaining teams will receive a Zombie Survival Kit themed prize pack!  Check your in-game mail over the days to come for your prizes.  Be sure not to accidentally delete your email, otherwise the attached prizes will be lost.

Indeed! All of the Gamma Quadrant arc now suddenly feels a little pallid compared to Voleron's grand finale. Thank you for putting together this last hurrah (and for reminding me my team mate was dead, though I couldn't tell given the state he was already in when he first showed up). Luckily for me, death didn't get in the way of him being able to read a map and use a tricorder and get us through the horrors.
