Secret Dev Message[]

One of the loading screen messages by the Developer Team featured a riddle by Gameplay Programmer Daniel:

(4-1706-48) (1-1241-39) (3-2433-28) (2-344-149) (1-1242-51) (3-2116-110). The solution is the question. See you in The Fog. <3

It was swiftly identified as an Ottendorf Cipher, in which the first number of the cipher refers to a specific Tome, the second number to a specific Memory within that Tome, and the third number to a specific word within that Memory.

As an example, the sixth cipher points to the 110th word of Memory 2116 in Tome 3 - Escalation: Secrets.

Combining the words from all six ciphers forms the following message: A miserable little pile of secrets.
This is a reference to the upcoming Castlevania Chapter.

The full quote reads as follows: "What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets!".


Tryks[]

Main article: Tryks


The third iteration of the Twisted Masquerade features Tryks, also known as Jezabel or the The Mad Designer.

She is the host of the Twisted Masquerade and was mentioned in Lore entries of the previous Events.
She is a biggest fan of The Entity and holds the celebration in her honour.

She is not a playable Character, just occasionally appears to engage everybody in the celebrations with voice-lines.


Gameplay Mechanics[]

For the third iteration of the Twisted Masquerade and as a first for an Event, the Gameplay is delegated into its own separate queue, akin to the Modifiers that were introduced earlier that year.

This allows Players not wishing to participate in the Event activities to continue playing regular Trials.

Only Twisted Masquerade Trials will feature the Gameplay changes and mechanics listed below:

Bag of Tryks[]

T UI iconCardHUD ChargeEmpty

An empty Bag of Tryks Charge.

T UI iconCardHUD ChargeFull

Ditto, but full.

All Event Trials use the newly introduced Bag of Tryks mechanic.

The Bag of Tryks, named so after Tryks, is not a physical, interactable object, but rather a mechanic that triggers Tryks, which imbue Players with various special effects and can temporarily modify the main gameplay objectives.

The first Tryk is activated right at the start of the Trial.
All subsequent Tryks must be triggered by Players progressing their main objective (i.e. completing a Generator or hooking a Survivor for the first time), so-called Party Events.

A new Tryk is activated after triggering 2 Party Events, which are tracked by two shield icons displayed beneath the Tryk icons.

The Bag of Tryks always displays two icons: that of the currently active Tryk and that of the next one to activate, giving Players the opportunity to prepare themselves for the next effect.

The Bag of Tryks mechanic is disabled during the Endgame CollapseIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGame.

Tryks Effects[]

The Bag of Tryks is a literal mixed bag: granting both good DBD UI Icon CheckMark and bad DBD UI Icon X effects to all Players in the Trial, as well as possibly a neutral one NaN:

Icon Name Type Effect
IconEventTryks GainCharge You're Invited! DBD UI Icon CheckMark Grants +1 Token towards the Twisted Skills to all Players.
IconEventTryks MoveOrLose Move It or Lose It! Grants a +30 % HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for 60 seconds to all Players.
IconEventTryks PartyTotems Party Totem! All Dull TotemsIconHelpLoading totemIconHelpLoading totemIconHelpLoading totem are converted into Anniversary Totems, glowing in a festive blue and gold tint.
Successfully channelling an Anniversary Totem applies the following effects to the Player:
  • Grants bonus BloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpoints.
  • Grants a +30 % HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for 5 seconds.
  • Reveals their AuraIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras to the opposing side for 5 seconds.

Failing to channel an Anniversary Totem by interrupting the interaction only grants bonus Bloodpoints.

An Anniversary Totem converts back into a Dull Totem after granting its gift.

IconEventTryks PartyChest Party Chest! All unopened ChestsIconHelp chestsIconHelp chestsIconHelp chests are converted into Anniversary Chests, glowing in a festive blue and gold tint when within 8 metres of them.

All Anniversary Chests automatically open in an explosion of festive confetti after 60 seconds and apply the following effects to all Players who are within their Aura-range at that moment:

  • Causes Survivors to scream and suffer from a -25 % HinderedIconStatusEffects hinderedIconStatusEffects hinderedIconStatusEffects hindered Status Effect for 4 seconds.
  • Causes the Killer to be stunned in place.

Opening an Anniversary Chest before the Tryk expires guarantees a random Anniversary Item.

Masquerade Pillar[]

All Event Trials also spawn, as in previous years, the Masquerade PillarIconHelp crownPillar5AIconHelp crownPillar5AIconHelp crownPillar5A with an Invitation ScrollEventIcon invitationScrollEventIcon invitationScrollEventIcon invitationScroll.

The AurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras of the Masquerade Pillars are revealed to all Players within 8 metres.
Unlike in previous years, there are now multiple Masquerade Pillars in the Trial and they do not de-spawn after interacting with them, but go on a Cool-down instead.

Collecting their Invitation Scrolls grants +1 Token per Scroll towards the special Event Ability: the Twisted Skills, also known this year as the Invitation Abilities.
Compared to their 2023 counterpart, this year's Twisted Skills are slightly modified.

The number of available Tokens is indicated by comet-like fireballs circling the Character's torso, as well as two golden slashes in the top left corner of the screen from the Killer's POV.
Players can accumulate a maximum of 2 Tokens at once.

Unlike in previous years and triggered after collecting the first Invitation Scroll, the Twisted Skills passively charge new Tokens at all times at a rate of +0.015 c/s (~66.667 seconds per Token), with the rate being doubled to +0.03 c/s (~33.333 seconds per Token) whenever the Player is actively engaged in a Chase.

The Twisted Skills are disabled during the Endgame CollapseIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGame.
