    You awake to find that nightmare has become reality!
    Britain has been taken over by the undead!
    No spellbook, no weapons, no supplies with danger all around.
    Do you grab a weapon and try to fight your way out?
    Search for resources and craft supplies for your fellow adventurers?
    Scrounge for magical supplies and summon help from the ether?
    Untold rewards await anyone who can make it out alive!

    Who knows what horrors await outside the safety of the Inn?

    Scavenge for supplies, search for other survivors, find hidden caches of supplies and discover secret areas on your way to escaping the nightmare.

    Yes, the coins will drop to your pack like Platinum.

    Last year I believe Telamon said there was a limit of about 50. I think he said this was a client limitation, so I would assume that is still an issue this year.

    60 ish is the limit, and Dalavar is correct the client can start to struggle trying to render that many players.

    There should be 17 runs this year (time permitting) so everyone should be able to make a few rounds.

    There will also be a large overworld event as well that will run 24/7

    Holiday coins have to be found on the corpses of the various minion critters, while from the mini boss, major boss monsters will drop them into your backpack.

    Glad to hear there is also an over world again, as my play time limits me to making any events :(
